Deep breath...  
My Silver Ticket is in the hands of a nice man who lives a few towns over from me, so someone will be getting the mileage out of that Vancouver SPN Con ticket. I'll recover about half the cost of it, which is so much nicer than losing the whole bundle AND having an empty seat at the Con. HSH was able to hand-deliver this afternoon, so it's all settled.

The lovely emerald_angel9, whom I'd hoped to room with in Vancouver, is still looking for a roommate to share a room with private bath at the Vancouver Hostel. It's within easy walking distance of the Con and runs about $56/night. She still has the reservation, so if you're interested please contact her ASAP vi LJ-messaging. I know she'd rather share with a single roommate than sleep on the floor with 4 other people for the same price.

And if you've booked rooms at the Burrard Motor Inn, you'll really want to consider getting in touch with her. See the reviews here, which warn about bedbugs (!!!) as recently as 6 weeks ago.

For those of you who are going to the Con, have a wonderful time! Tell us everything!

Glad you sold the ticket and got a little bit out of it. There seemed to be more tickets for sale at the last minute for this con than any I can remember. Let us know how the wedding re-enactment goes! I'm off to the airport.

I'm only looking forward to seeing the rest of the family (including my BIL who lives in Nevada-- we don't see him often).

Apparently, the kids were disappointed that my "business trip" got cancelled, because neither of them wants to go to the wedding, and they'd hoped their father would not be up to driving them. For Lauren, that has a lot to do with wearing a dress (boy, she makes me tired over that) and expecting the wedding to be boring (I'm afraid it will be both boring and weird at the same time). For Christohper, he has a soccer-seeding tournament he was looking forward to, and he can only go to the first two of the four tames. And HSH doesn't want to deal with the bald head thing, since he can't wear a baseball cap into the actual wedding. ;)

I think the word I'm looking for is "Gah!"

Hope you have a great time, though, and post lots about it!

That's fab that you managed to sell the ticket. At least you managed to recoup a little of your money and like you said, at least someone is going to have a good time and it won't be an empty seat:)

Yes-- the ticket is an upgrade for the buyer, and he'll get all the autographs and a much closer seat, which will be great.

He'll definitely be having more fun than me. :0 I forsee excessive ceremony on the horizon for the wedding, which is a "re-enactment" ceremony of the union between my 18-year-old niece and the boyfriend from her high school years whom we all honestly wished she'd walked away from long ago. :0
