    While not at Comic-Con, I will be finishing up the first draft of a novel that I suspect Tor will have little interest in. Still, I have my memories of the 2009 Comic-Con (my honeymoon), to keep me warm.

    I will be hammering the F5 key on all comic, movie, and toy news sites. 😀

  6. July 20, 2011 at 11:24 am

    Ill be sitting in Georgia working and writing my novel about an angry Tulpa (anyone know what that is?) A little paranormal fiction for those not willing to look it up. But, I will also be awaiting the photos and blogs sure to follow Comicon. Enjoy the Cali weather folks.

  20. July 20, 2011 at 11:28 am

    I’ll be presenting a workshop–first time–pretending that the 5 people in attendance are really hundreds and we’re all at ComicCon. It’s good to live in one’s imagination.

  21. July 20, 2011 at 11:28 am

    Instead of attending Comic-Con I will be stuck at work… again. 😦

    While not at Comicon, this weekend I will be watching Captain America kick some butt while having my coffee & muffin at a matinee and then traveling down the Deleware river in a tube with a bunch of friends and a cooler in a tube. Doesn’t get any sweeter while not at Comicon. 🙂

  38. Jen Moore
    July 20, 2011 at 11:36 am

    I’m not *babysitting* my kid sister (besides, she just turned 23) but she’ll be coming up to visit me and we’ll be seeing Captain America, going to the zoo, and maybe heading out to the House on the Rock. We’d both rather be at Comicon, but if we can’t make it, well, this is a good alternative.

  39. kj

  43. Scotty Shepherd
    July 20, 2011 at 11:42 am

  44. galena
    July 20, 2011 at 11:42 am

    I will be at work. But my job is preventing the zombie apocalypse, so I’m taking one for the team and not going to Comic-Con to save all your lives. YOU’RE WELCOME.

  45. July 20, 2011 at 11:43 am

  46. Aaron
    July 20, 2011 at 11:43 am

    I’ll be seeing ‘Captain America’ and picking up games for my new Xbox 360. I’ll also probably be grousing about not being at ComicCon the whole time as well.

  47. July 20, 2011 at 11:43 am

    While not at ComicCon, I will be working as an EMT in my small town. Not nearly as fun, but something that must be done!

  48. July 20, 2011 at 11:44 am

    Sadly I’m at work all week so I can”t make it to SDCC even though I live in SD. Also when I get off work I’m going to spend most of my time in another star cluster working on my WIP sci-fi novel.

  49. Tanja
    July 20, 2011 at 11:44 am

    I’m not attending Comic-Con this year, instead I’m working as an artist on my first comic book anthology. Hope to be there next year!

  50. thetomewriter
    July 20, 2011 at 11:46 am

    While NOT at ComicCon, I will be continuing to send off pleading query letters for my completed fantasy novel to each and every respectable agent on the face of the planet while praying that some other already-successful author doesn’t come along and publish something riddled with plot points like mine!!! 😉

  51. July 20, 2011 at 11:46 am

    While not at Comic-Con I will be feverishly finishing stuff at work to get them in on time, and I will also be procrastinating on my novel. Instead of working on it in the evenings, I will be recovering from my days. Sad time. However, I WILL be reading The Book Thief, because it is awesome.

  52. July 20, 2011 at 11:50 am

    While not at ComicCon, I will be seeing movies with my son, Harry Potter and Capt America here we come.

    While not attending Comic-Con I’ll be taking care of 90yr old FIL, and catching up on the 4 book reviews I’ve been remiss at completing. I need a break, and wish I could have flown out to Cali for the con. I even have family I could have stayed with.

  55. July 20, 2011 at 11:51 am

    While not at Comic-Con, I will be celebrating my birthday by lolling in my sister’s pool, blowing bubbles with my niece and nephew, and eating pulled pork sammiches homemade by my brother in law!

  58. July 20, 2011 at 11:56 am

    Sadly, since tickets were sold out almost instantly, I won’t be at ComicCon this year. Which I guess is a good thing since it turns out I’m going in for Thyroid Surgery tomorrow! The true sad part is that because of the surgery, I can’t go see Cowboys vs Aliens or Captain America for a couple of weeks! Oh, the humanity! *cry*

    Heh heh heh

  59. July 20, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    Well, I’ll BE in California. But I won’t be at Comicon. I’ll be in San Francisco, freezing my butt off and sitting in a hotel room all day. SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR AWAY. T-T

  63. Kaya H
    July 20, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    While not at ComicCon (I tried to get tickets early) I will be at school wishing I was at CC. I will take the kids clothes shopping and listen to whining while wishing I was listening to fabulous authors and seeing great new toys.

  64. Gina Fischer
    July 20, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    While my husband is at ComicCon, I will be at home in 100+ heat and enjoying spending extra time horseback riding (despite the weather), reading, and generally being lazy.

  65. July 20, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    While not at Comic Con, I’ll be running around like a mad thing getting ready for Sock Summit here in Portland: several thousand insane knitters gathering to do all things sock. And I’ll be getting back up to speed with my spinning wheel in preparation for a class at SS. Yeah, we’re a weird mob. 😉

  66. Megan Murray
    July 20, 2011 at 12:27 pm

    While not at ComicCon, I will be emerged in realms of fantasy created by authors of old and those of my 5 year old daughter. Weaving and creating and teaching….oh, gotta love sharing the fantasy.

  74. Jason
    July 20, 2011 at 12:51 pm

  80. July 20, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    While not at ComicCon, I’ll be wandering my local farmer’s market…and enjoying what I hope is a cool summer morning.

    While not at ComicCon this week, I’ll be teaching my kids to swim so that they’ll be prepared for the New World Order when the dolphins assume their rightful place as leaders of the free world. I also expect to explain to my 5-year-old…again…why she cannot be an astronaut until she grows up.

  82. Bryce Barrow

  86. July 20, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    NotAtComicCon due to inability to travel. Lack of mutant storks in NC plus the family is in Labor Watch Mode for a new baby girl, Sophia Grace, to arrive. Will gather a library of children’s books for the wee one and attend Comic-Con Q & A event online through Facebook. Echoing previous bloggers, ComicConistas please post pictures and exciting details for us poor unfortunate E. Coasters without access to super sonic, high velocity transit.

  87. Kirsten
    July 20, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    So far this week, Hubby and I had a night to ourselves, with our toddler sleeping at her grandparents; and tomorrow night the plan is to go see Cyrano De Bergerac live at the park. One of my favorite plays, as part of two date nights in one week is a fun summer treat.
    Maybe someday ComicCon will be our summer treat– and I wouldn’t mind taking the kids for that!

  187. July 22, 2011 at 3:41 pm

    Hmmm… While I am jealously reading all tha #SDCC tweets of the lucky b*stards that are there, I will be fabulously working at an insurance agency. Then I will continue the fabulousness with laundry, housecleaning, and errands on my day off. To cap off the fabulousity, I will take my nephew & 2 nieces to a softball game (between two different counties’ Libertarian Party members – oh! The excitement!), and then to Bordes to buy & mourn.
    Not quite as fabulous as tickets to SDCC, but it’s what I got. :p

  188. July 22, 2011 at 3:59 pm

  193. July 22, 2011 at 5:54 pm

    I can’t be at Comic Con mostly for financial reasons, but I wouldn’t be able to make it anyway.

    While not at Comic Con, I’ll be finishing up a course of antibiotics for a sinus infection I’ve had for a while. Saturday will be the last day. In the meantime, diarrhea has set in with a vengeance, but at least the body aches have stopped.

    I should defineately get the pity vote!

  194. July 22, 2011 at 5:57 pm

    I’ll be trying to sit out this nasty east coast heat wave; probably in the pool so it won’t be as bad… but San Diego would be much, much better.

    July 23, 2011 at 3:05 pm

    I was supposed to go to Comic Con, but my car decided it didn’t want to go, and the repairs cost me the money I’d saved to go. So, since I’m not at SDCC, I will be doing the following:
    1. revising my dissertation
    2. grading student wikis
    3. seeing Captain America
    4. being slightly sad at all the pictures my friends who *are* at SDCC are posting on twitter and FB.
    5. being slightly glad that if I have to miss it, I’m missing a year filled with 8 million twihards.

  202. July 23, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    While not at Comic Con, I will be attending Bloomfest in Los Angeles for some awesome free music/food/art, working on my novel, uploading new items to my Etsy shop, hopefully watching Captain America, and visiting SDCC vicariously through all my friends rubbing it in… er, tweeting and posting about how much fun they’re having without me. : )

    Since I’m not at Comic Con and not working, I decided to spend time with family and a friend that I haven’t seen in over a decade!

  232. July 23, 2011 at 7:18 pm

    While #NotAtComicCon I’ll be wishing I was there, I’ve never been 😦 Probably while at work and fretting over the coming birth of my spankin new daughter in a few months (she’s still in the packaging). I’ll also probably spend some time trying to catch up on a few shows and some of the anime series I’ve been watching lately.

  233. July 23, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    Whilst not attending the Con of Comics, my time shall be split between hunting for those elusive Xbox 360 achievments, and re-reading Robert Jordan’s(and Brandon Sanderson’s) epic tale of The Wheel of Time.

    While not at ComicCon, I have re-read the last two books of the Chronicles of Narnia (gonna podcast on them soon), gone to work (to be able to afford cool stuff at the Chicago comic con in a few weeks), mopped the floor, and used Google+ hangouts to connect with friends. And I’ve been following the SDCC tweets from lots of friends and admiring all their pictures when they meet famous people or even just mutual internet friends! And tomorrow I’ll go to church. And I’m hopefully going to introduce some internet friends to the wonderful old show Remington Steele, since more than half of it is up on Hulu.

  239. July 23, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    Watching Captain America, Torchwood, and Haven.

  240. July 23, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    Let’s see, while not at Comic-Con I should be writing, podcasting, working, playing with my children, and cleaning the house. But so far I’ve spent the weekend whining that I’m not at Comic-Con. Oh, and I got an oil change.

  243. July 23, 2011 at 10:17 pm

    While not at Comic Con, I’ve been writing, blogging, and catching up on the Marvel film universe and thereby discovering Marvel piece by piece.

  244. July 23, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    While #NotAtComicCon, I spent the week vacationing with the family in Santa Fe. Resting up this weekend to prepare to go back to work on Monday.

    My not at Comic-Con week shall entail much hiking, picnicing & painting of my daughters play table.

  248. July 23, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    While I’m not at Comic-Con I will be taking care of two rambunctious toddlers, a husband with a bad back, and somewhere in there I’ll be trying to finish A Dance with Dragons. I should probably be doing the dishes too, but following Jon, Tyrion, and Dany is much more interesting.

  249. Trisha
    July 23, 2011 at 11:19 pm

    Oh, I’ll be indulging in some fabulous fantasy.. I should probably go to work at some point, too.. =P

  251. July 24, 2011 at 6:59 am

    While not at Comic Con, I’ll be taking care of my small child and finishing up Westerfeld’s “Midnighters” Series, then probably grabbing “Divergent” or “Dance with Dragons”.

    I saw Captain America while I wasn’t at Comic Con…and worked. But I also texted with friends who *are* at Comic Con. Jealously.

    I’ll be busy finishing moving stuff into my fiance and my new house! It’ll be hard catching up on my reading with the boxes and what not but it’s part of being a adult now, I guess. Blah haha!

    While not at Comic Con, I spent a lot of time at work wishing I was at Comic Con and also wishing I had a new book to read since I crushed A Dance With Dragons as soon as it hit my doorstep. 😦

  259. July 25, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    I was at Comic Con, but I spent a lot of time helping give out goodies at the blood drive, so I missed most of the giveaways on the floor. Can I still enter?
