Geeks Anonymous....

a/k/a ye olde Star Trek Convention.

Truth be told, I've never actually been to one of these things. Ever. Right now, I'm tempted to go just so that I have the perfunctory "geek" pictures of the big name folks.....

*Silly Name* Star Trek Convention

Dude, $40 for both days? $25 per day? Yikes. For some reason I didn't think it would be quite that expensive..... Not that it would kill my budget, but honestly I wouldn't want to be there long enough to make the $25 worth it. I'd be inclined to walk in, look around, see famous people, snap pics, go home. Suddenly I'm not feeling quite so enthusiastic about this. I'm also reminded why I haven't gone to these things in the past....

Hmmm.....

Should I go?

ok, I admit it....

....part of my problem with the Trek Convention is it's name:

The Great Bird of the Galaxy Star Trek Celebration

which I keep wanting to call The Great BIG Bird of the Galaxy etc.... I mean couldn't they come up with a less dorky name for it? I cringe whenever people call a convention/meeting a "celebration"... It just sounds like they're trying too hard.

I still haven't made up my mind though.
