    Hmmm...I need to see if I can change my flight now. I thought it was 2:00pm like last year. That's what I get for assuming.

    **edit**

    Got my flight changed. Only cost me $30 ($100 fee - $70 since the cost of the flight went down).

    um, wow. Thats crazy. I wonder what they are going to squeeze in for that extra opening time. Paying 5$ more is most certainly worth getting in 5 hours earlier.

    Not really. It just means I have to get up even more earlier, to get a good spot in line to get my wristband.

    This earlier opening time will be hell for Pre-PAX breakfast! WON'T SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CRUMPETS?

    Wasn't breakfast at 9?

    Also, the crumpet place was so packed I just picked up some fruit from a fruit stand.

    The breakfast may have been at nine, but that will get rid of any ability people once had to eat at the breakfast and then line up for 4+ hours, unless they want to eat at 5 or 6am, haha.

    Question: With PAX opening at 10am, will the BYOC room open at 9am, consistent with previous years' 1 hour earlier opening?

    Yeah, I don't line up all crazy early though. So maybe the breakfast places won't be as packed this year.

    It will be a Friday, and aren't the crazy Marketplace folk wake up at the buttcrack-of-the-buttcrack of dawn?

    There's no way I'm getting up that early on Friday, that morning is the last sleep I get cuz I'm going to pretty much be awake the entire weekend. I'll still assume the Pre-PAX dinner will be the night before as well, and that's enough for me.

    I'm totally psyched about the earlier start time. That implys more panels. Plus, I had a good gap after the breakfast last year that I had nothing to do but wander.

    I'm pretty psyched about the earlier opening time. I mean, all I do between b'fast at 9 and open at 3 is sit around in the line room, and I'm certainly not the only one. This move makes sense.

    I think a good middle ground would be nice... because that pre-PAX breakfast run was a blast! Also, some of us might be a bit worn out from a long night of alcohol-awashed Hufflepuff victory... er, I mean, Pub Crawling. =)

    EDIT: Not that I'm complaining, mind you. =) Just in an ideal world, I picture PAX starting at, say, noon. =)

    All this pre-PAX planning makes me sad, don't think I'll be able too be there in time. I'll be lucky if I show up for the line in time. Stupid work and its sucky vacation rules. What about Post-PAX?

    I do not think you need the barcode, but Will-Call would go a lot faster if ya did.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong on that.

    Up Hufflepuff! I'm glad we are gonna get more hours of PAX, but I am gonna be sooooo smashed at 10 in the morning (for the glory of my house). Hopefully someone can point me towards greasy delicious breakfast burritos so I can recover my semi-sobriety early on.

    Yah, I can't imagine too much of a breakfast on Friday morning since it's so early. I'll probably just bring some food or buy something to eat in line.

    So glad I don't get hungover though! Pubcrawl will be great.

    I think if you consume enough water when you drink, you won't get hung over. At least, that's what I hear... that the most common reason for hangovers is dehydration. =)

    Keep a bottle of water or gatorade next to the bed when you sleep and drink whenever you're thirsty, it helps a lot.

    Remember, if you're thirsty, you're already dehydrated.

    But really yah, keep a bottle of water next to your bed. I've always had one since I was very young. I don't usually remember waking up in the middle of the night drinking it, but I tend to go through about 2/3's of a gatorade bottle throughout the night.

    It doesn't seem to ever make a difference to me. I've been drunk to the point of forgetting the night, and drunk to the point of throwing up, but never had a hangover the next day. Head feels fine usually. Stomach, not so much :P
