Firefly geek moment

Okay, so I don't usually go to conventions. The Battlestar Galactica 20 Yahron Reunion was around the corner from my place in LA, and I chickened out. I haven't ever made it to BayCon here in town. There's a dual fear that comes with conventions - 1. that I'm not a big enough geek to fit in and have fun, and 2. that everyone else there will be such total uber-geeks that I'll think they're pathetic. It's a really odd thing to feel both not cool enough for something, and yet have the suspicion that everyone else there might be socially maladjusted dorks. How does that work? Anyway...

I've never been as big a fan of something as I am of Firefly. Best tv ever, and killed in its prime.

So there's a Brown Coat Ball convention in Chicago in September. I already know what I'd wear to the ball on Saturday night. I think it'd be a hoot, and since Serenity is due in theaters on April 22nd, 2005, it would probably be a pretty exciting time for fans.

The convention costs $100, which seems pretty cheap considering that includes several meals, a costume ball, and a private train ride. Plane tickets look like they'll run about $250. A hotel room is simple, if I can get some compatriots to go with me. So do I really want to do this? Do I want to brave this convention? And if so, who can I talk into going with me?
