I'm leaving on a jet plane...

Yesterday, I book/paid for my summer trip to Chicago. I'm looking forward to the trip, and the opportunity to meet many online friends from City of Heroes in real life. You'd think that I'd be content with that? Not a chance.

Today, after confirming everything was booked for Chicago, I starting browsing for hotels for London, for my 2010 trip. I'm not sure where exactly where I should stay, because I don't know where Vics, and her bloke live, and I'd like to stay in a hotel close to them, so I can meet them. I've known Vicky for many years and I look forward to meeting her, the bloke, and the new addition to the family. I haven't even taken the current vacation, and I'm thinking of the next.

Well back to the current year's vacation, we're already talking about going to see the GI Joe movie, the is suppose to come out that weekend. I'm also looking forward to checking out downtown and the Skydeck of the Sears Tower, and Medieval Times is definitely part of the plan. I'm really looking forward to exploring the city, maybe see a baseball game, and of course enjoying the Comic Con.

I've been checking out the website of the local Comic Expo in Calgary,(it's in April, and I'm going. I'll blog about it after) and they've been getting some really cool guests, and if a small Comic Con in Calgary, has a lot of cool guests including "Ando" from Heroes, then the convention in Chicago will be amazing.

I'd admit, that a Comic Book Convention is a bit of a geeky vacation, but SO FRIGGIN WHAT!!!. I'f you've never been to a Comic Con you're loosing out, and I don't just mean the hot women in Cosplay outfits. (drool).

I just see the whole thing as whole new experience. I haven't had a real vacation for a long time, so I'm way overdue. I'm also looking forward to buying a lot of crap that my dad would say "why are you wasting your money". All this and more in 181 days. Not that I'm counting the days, hours, minutes or seconds. Well I spent my trip fund on booking the flight and hotel room, so I have 6 months to save up for buying junk, but still...these next 6 months are going to drag!!! I guess I can kill time by agonzing what hotel to stay at in London.

I'd suggest any London (Central) Hotel as we can always easily meet up anywhere in town and do tourist stuff (when the Underground is working and not crippled by snow). Also you can always stay at ours on the sofa bed, if you don't mind slumming it, Baboon style!

Ok who am I kiddin' "any" London hotel is not a good suggestion - if you can afford it book into one of the top Luxury Hotels or check out

I'm leaving on my trip in about a month, and I find that a long wait!
Patience, eh?

Sears Tower Skydeck doesn't compare to watching LSD from the John Hancock Building.

And go for breakfast at a place who's name starts with "W" and is next to where Oprah tapes her show. Whistler's? Wallah Wallah? Wishbone!
