Yikes. Well there is DEFINITELY no way I'm going to DC this year. Heh.
"but I'm still imaging an upswing in teenage girl attendance"

If I were 15, I'd so be there for that. Only I wouldn't be, because what fucking teenager can travel around for bullshit? Growing up in a convo town must be weird. My 16ish cousin in San Diego has gotten motel rooms with his friends for comicon before. I didn't even go to fast food places without my parents when I was that age.
