Just over 2 weeks to go! I'm so excited, I've been trying to plan what I want to do!
There will be a massive social component - I would love to do RL Navispams of all the people I admire and of anyone who reads my blog (LOL there are only a few of my readers going!) but I am pretty private - I don't have any pics of myself anywhere on the internet and I don't particularly want to be starting now!
People ask me if I'm going to the WoWinsider/WoWhead party on Thursday - I am pretty sure I won't be! That stuff is for A-listers and I would be too scared to talk to any of them! Apple Cider Mage will be there, and it would be nice to meet her in person too - I admit I am a little nervous because she can be rather fierce when she's fired up!
I would like to attend the Twisted Nether Blogcast meetup - I can meet some of the people whose podcasts I follow, or whose blogs I read. I think I would like to go to that, but I am still a little shy! I did email TNB today to ask if I can attend - and they said yes!
World of Podcasts will be having their do in our hotel (The Red Lion) and there are a few there that I listen to, so I would like to go down there and say hello - especially to Rho and Hasteur. I'd be pretty awed to see Apsana and Skolnick from Darkmoon Herald but I'd be too shy to say anything to them. I want to get them to write something for Moogyver's young kids who listen to his podcast (though he could just get that done himself since he's a podcaster!)
Arv and Matty will be at Blizzcon, so I want to hang out with them, of course. Xarek and Pell will be there, and I would like to spend time with our dear guildies from Dath'remar who haven't come across - after all, we wouldn't be at Blizzcon if it wasn't for them getting our tickets!
Shawndra (Escapist Crawl) and Katherinne (WoW Is in the Details) are also there and I would love to see them as well.
I even have some autographs to get! Shab wants me to get a pic with Venruki - I will be watching some e-sports (ie arena tournament and SC2 if I get the chance) and Sodah said he would be at Blizzcon (he is playing in the tournament for Skill Banner)- gee, I wonder what they will think if I get them to sign the pic that I had commissioned of Shab, Sev and me? Well, there is a meet the teams thing
Apple Cider mage has written a great survival guide - for a first (and probably ONLY) timer like me I want to try to do EVERYTHING so I can remember it all. It's a long way to travel!
I will have to make a packing list like Shawndra has next!
