Wants I to go to vividcon much this year, yes. And Chicago is within easy driving distance. In fact, if I wanted to skip staying at the hotel (which I don't), I could crash on the sofas of multiple relatives in the area. Not, obviously, at the same time.
But I don't have the cash-on-hand to register now for a convention that doesn't happen until August. Not when I'm trying to save for airfare to connexions, which is not within driving distance, and which is about 250$ just for travel. In April.
(Also, haven't bought maeyan's Christmas present yet. :( )
Wouldn't worry me at all given that I've got til August 1 to register, theoretically -- except for the fact that VividCon has a 100-member cap. Which makes me nervous that it will fill up before I have the chance to spend guilt-free money on the registration.
Anybody who's been before, got any idea on how fast the membership list actually fills up? And who's going or thinking of going, anyway?
ETA:: Whee! Registered!
