Yeah, when we find out dates I'll look into changing my flight.
It is a trip to get there, but I think it would be worth it.

Debating the pros and cons...

Random babbling from me...

What possible cons could there be besides money? And having to take time off work? And get someone to feed the pets? *smiles*

I already have someone staying with me so I can't offer you lodging. But there's plenty of other people going that need roomies. And even an LJ community and a Yahoo group that you may know about discussing this very issue.

I will be at LAX on Thursday Jan. 13 around 8:30 p.m. and again Monday around 1:30 p.m. for plane pick up/drop off. And I'm willing to go other times, as well. Or to Burbank airport (BUR) which is even closer but the flights tend to cost more.

I'm willing to aid you if you decide to attend!

Re: Random babbling from me...

You're such a sweetie!

And now that I know I can meet you there, that adds to the "pro" list.

Actually, money, time, etc. is not a problem.

The main "cons" are these:

- I've already been lucky enough to meet all of the "hobbits", because of my trip to England last year, and I have wonderful memories of it all. I certainly don't need any more autographs! To be honest, sometimes cons aren't so wonderful - if the actors feel uncomfortable, or the attendees aren't polite, or people get rushed through lines - and I wonder which kind this will turn out to be. What's your view on the current "buzz"?

- One of great things about cons are the other fans/friends you go to experience it with, and I really don't know that many people that I know, or that I've been hoping to meet, who are going (except for you, now - *S*). On the other hand, I did tell some of the folks I know in England that I wanted to go over on Jan. 8 to see Ian McKellen, who will be playing a Dame in a pantomime in London (L*!). With the timing, I can't do both. I mean - you don't just pop over to England for a weekend! *G*

- I pretty much started going to see the LOTR folks in February 2003, with Billy in Canada, and did my last visit around that same time in 2004, with Howard Shore in Columbus; I call it my "year of the hobbits" - *L*! Perhaps that was a good time to stop?

Pros:

-BILLEH!!!! (and Sean and Elijah - and I'd be very surprised if there's no Dom, if his LOST schedule allows, especially since they're all spending New Year's in Hawaii together - *G*)

-PHOTO OPS at the talks!!!! SQUEEEEEEE!!!!! *cough* Yes, I do enjoy taking photos - surprised? And after all of this experience, I think I finally know how to do it right - so it's a shame to waste that experience... *G*

- California is a much nicer place to visit in the dead of winter than England is. Yes, I love the folks in England - but I can't for the life of me figure out what to do besides go to the panto. And what I love best about England is enjoying the countryside. Plus, I didn't get to Scotland on my last visit, and, face it - Scotland in January? *shudders* So I'm considering going to ORC instead and enjoy the sunshine - and schedule a trip this summer to England/Scotland. Preferably when and if Billy gets the theatre bug again and decides to do a play! *hopes hopes hopes*

Ummm... you probably didn't want this long of a reply, but, as you can see... I've been rather torn about this (pardon the pun) lately!

Oh! And did I mention - Ewan McGregor in a MUSICAL. IN LONDON. IN JUNE. (another fringe benefit if I visit at that time of the year!)

Tough call. I've never met Ian, either. You need something to give you a final push one way or the other. Or something to convince you to stay home.

Will give this some thought and write when I get home from work tonight.
