    Jul 1, 2008, 7:56 PM - Need a place to sleep for SDCC08 & I'm broke as a joke #1

    Hey guys
    I'm calling upon your charitable sides.
    I just found out last week that I will be going to SDCC08
    I had not planned on going at all until my friends got me a pass on Wednesday.
    I spent all my "disposable" income on fixing the house over the last few months
    so now I need your help.
    I need a place to sleep
    1 night, 2 nights, 4 nights, anything
    Since I have no money, I can't offer to pay my share
    Sucks , I know. Was not my plan to mooch of of you guys, believe me.
    That's not how I roll
    Perhaps I can trade some mediocre prop painting talents in exchange for floorspace?
    I'll not hang out in your rooms all day & become a burden
    Just need a place to crash & take aquick shower to de-funk


    I'm coming in on Thursday & leaving on Sunday
    PM me if you can help

    Wish I could help Nathan but things are a bit crazy with the new baby, or else I'd offer my house. I'll pm you my cell so at least if worst comes to worst you can hit me up and I'll do my best to help you out.

    Not sure if I'll be able to make CC (I ALWAYS miss it) because I am dead broke right now but we'll see....you guys gotta call me up for dinner though!

    Thanx for all the responses
    Slavefive has made the following contribution;

    ...in hoping that it will help our friend Nathan out...Sci-Fire will give the people that host Nate's stay their choice of either a HyperFirm E-11 or HyperFirm MG34...

    Hey Nate,

    Let me check with my host. If he's cool with it, you can stay with me but I just have to be sure. No hyperfirm necessary, just got your back.

    I will email or PM you with results by tomorrow.

    Same here Nate. I PM'ed you what I have. Granted it isn't the closet hotel to the Con. But like I told you I am not about to leave you out in the cold.
    NO hyper needed either. Just family looking out for one another oh wait.. you hate hugs..here this is better: (just pretend they are holding cozmo's)

    I was wondering if you were going this year, since I hadn't heard from you in awhile, I guess I should be playing more COD4 to catch up !

    Yo Gonzo ! Where are you staying this year ? Seeker, our host and I are staying at the Embassy Suites in Embarcadero...its a walk , but its a nice place !

    i just found out i have a friend that's going down for sdcc. if i get a chance to talk to her i could ask about it. though i have no idea where she's staying. i am going to try to talk her into doing a star wars costume when she gets back too. maybe we could work out some sort of painting arrangement if that pans out.

    Hey Jose,
    Danny and I are staying at the Days Inn on Ash street with our friends Dan and Randi. It is about a mile away from the convention.

    Is Dana staying with you guys?

    I can't wait to see all you knuckleheads again. Wandering the streets of downtown SD in the wee hours of the mornings has become a annual tradition.

    You could camp out in the Airstream with Quinton and I, but you'd have to be my "front man" in the spoon position!

    I have simple couch or you can crash in one of my kids room lol. they will be with mom during the week. the couch is actually prety comfy I have fallen asleep on it a few time lol.. I might not get to go to con...... possible new job that would have me in orientation for the week. I have no saturday or sunday ticket. but the landing pad is still open if you need a place to land for a night.

    I can give you a landing site for both days if you like. as it turns out I might actually get to go to con. And if your around at the proper time I might even be able to throw something edible on a plastic circular device. ..... Let me know.
