Toy Story: San Diego Comic Con Swag

Sadly I didn’t make it to San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) this year but, thanks to the power of technology, I was there in spirit (aka directing the boyfriend via Twitter to the My Little Pony booth every time they had a poster giveaway). Actually, wi-fi/3G signal is terrible at the Con and even though Twitter is the best way to find out about different events, most of the time you’re too busy running between panels and booths to keep up with it. Which meant that our system actually worked quite well: whilst he traversed the Con floor I was sitting on a beach in the Middle East sipping an iced coffee and keeping track of what was happening online (free wi-fi at the beach = pinnacle of progress, by the way). So whenever I saw someone Tweeting about a signing or giveaway (often involving My Little Pony) I would alert him to it. And it paid off because he turned up at that My Little Pony booth so many times (alas, each time arriving too later to nab me a free poster) that in the end they took pity on him and gave him a Derpy Pony keyring. Score! As well as the keyring he brought me back a few other SDCC exclusives (below), as well as a few for himself, naturally…
