We’re both back in New York again after arriving home around 3 AM last night. We were originally scheduled to return home quite a bit earlier, but (surprise!) American Airlines canceled our Monday morning flight. Much like my horrible experience with American Airlines detailed a few days ago, after keeping me on hold for almost an hour, I was told us there were no flights available on any airline until Wednesday afternoon. We promptly hung up the phone, jumped on the ‘Net and found a flight home on another airline for Monday afternoon. Did I mention how much I hate American Airlines?
The flight home was fairly uneventful, but just as we thought our bad travel luck was a thing of the past, we encountered “The Great Traffic Jam of ’08″ on the Van Wyck Expressway. Let me put it this way: We left the airport parking lot a little after midnight. We should’ve arrived home between 12:30 and 1 AM. We didn’t walk through the door until after 3 AM.
Due to factors related to travel and other ridiculous situations, this whole Comic-Con experience goes down in the books as one of the most epic “one bad thing after another” scenarios I’ve ever experienced.
I plan to post a wrap-up of the actual comics side of things on ComicMix later today, so keep an eye out for it. Until then, feel free to check out some of the photos Jessica and I took from the show. I’ll be adding some additional photos to my Flickr account later tonight, too.
