Fishy Circumstances

Queue Karma

If standing in line for a long time can earn good karma, then my hour in line this afternoon was time well-spent. Anime North hadn't begun, although registration was well underway when I joined a nascent line in the hopes of getting tickets to some of the more hard-to-get-into events of the weekend. After all, why waste time in line during the con when I could do it before the con began? After an hour of chatting with Original Character cosplayers working from BLEACH, our whole enormous long line was dismissed. "Go away. Line up in another two hours, not now." Reluctantly, we abandoned our posts.

A few hours later, I wandered back, expecting to either be at the back of another long line, or else for the evening's ticket supply to be used up. But I was in luck! I snagged the second-to-last masquerade ticket/sticker of the evening, and had no line at all for tomorrow afternoon's j-rock concert. Whether or not standing in line was wasted effort on my part is debatable - but I got both tickets.
