So, yeah, Supanova
is the one convention I attend every year, because I am totally a pop culture geek, and it doesn't even matter who the guests are, though I've gotten to hear and meet some pretty awesome people in the past.
Anyways, Hayden Panettiere was the major guest headlining the list this year, till she had to pull out because of overtime filming. It didn't faze me that much, because my big burning love of Heroes has faded to the warm embers of yesteryear, and I was far more interested in seeing Nichelle Nichols, who is an icon and a pioneer and seems like she would have a wealth of fascinating stories to share.
So I'm browsing online and come across the announcement of the guest who is replacing Hayden.JARED PADALECKI.
I burst out laughing in front of the computer. Seriously.
I found my own reaction a little surprising, actually. On reflection, I think I reacted like that because Heroes and Supernatural were the two shows I was completely obsessed with all of last year, and yet the most recent seasons have sapped most of my interest in them. So it's kind of like, man, ironic timing.
Don't get me wrong, I'm still interested in checking out his talk, except he's only doing a Q&A session on the Sunday, which isn't the day I'd planned on going. So would it be lame to switch days, considering the place will probably be packed out with Supernatural fans, and I might not get a spot in the auditorium? But if I don't even try, isn't that even lamer, considering the likelihood of him setting foot on this continent again?
Actually, the lamest thing is probably me worrying about something like this and then posting it for everyone on the net to see. Oh well.
