I'm cruising around SPN fandom, and seeing people bitching and complaining about the cost of Creation Con tickets and people paying the price, and it's just...*argh*! I'm not talking about people who are upset that they can't afford it--I'm talking about people complaining that people bought the tickets.

Look, I get that tickets are expensive (for the packages anyway) and I get that not everyone can afford them. I probably couldn't have afforded Gold last year either, and I probably won't be able to afford it next year, but I can afford it *now*, so dammit, that's what I bought. I don't go out to bars or clubs, go out to fancy dinners or spend tons of money on clothes. I'm not married, I don't have any kids, and the only other thing I have to support is a dog, and he doesn't eat that much. So I have no problem with the fact that I bought the ticket, but having my squee harshed isn't fun.

Wanna know why I bought the ticket?

1)The seating arrangment at Asylum pissed me off so bad I could hardly see straight, which was good, because I couldn't fucking see the guests either.

2)I *hate* waiting in line. It pisses me off, it makes me cranky, it makes me snappish. So yes, it is worth $400 to me to have to stand in line for a shorter time once or twice, and then not have to stand in line anymore. I once waited in line for Michael Rosenbaum for like 4 hours. Ain't doing that shit again.

If that makes me crazy, so be it. I'll be waving my crazy at ya back in line from the second row. ;)

ETA: And yes, I do understand that Creation is making money. They're a business. That's generally how businesses operate. And it's the law of supply and demand, and that was set in motion long before tickets went on sale. It was set into motion all the way back when everyone was emailing Creation (myself included) telling them that we would all just pass out if J2 would show up. If we would have been, "Meh, I dunno" then maybe they would have thought there was less demand.

    I thought working from home would be slow, but this week it feels like more people are looking for insurance than ever! *Whew*! Not the first thing…

    I had to break the work from home order yesterday and venture into the office. I always thought working from home would be great and parts of it…

    I can't remember if I was still updating on LJ back then, but if not...one big change was I bought a house back in 2016. It's way on the other side…
