Some of my online friends are helping in the organisation of a House convention to be held this year in Princeton, of course!!

I thought it was possible that some of you may be unaware of this event, and so I feel obliged to publicise it. Unfortunately I cannot go, since I live on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, but I'll be there in spirit!! :D

I'm now aware of a second convention to be held in L.A, which apparently Hugh will be attending, according to the source. I'd only been following the plans of the Princeton one, so this one slipped past me, sorry folks.

I'm not sure if there's an entrance fee, but there's all the extra costs of flying/travelling there, possible accomodation for the night etc.. that is unless you live nearby or have a relative/friend there

But then to meet some members of the cast, including Hugh, and meet hundreds/maybe thousands of other House fans all under one roof to celebrate the success of the tv show, I'd definitely say it's worth a fair penny because you'd remember that for years to come.

Although for me, I cannot afford to go because of the flights from the UK, and I'm a student so have no real income.

But then that doesn't mean if you live outwidth the U.S you cannot attend, I've read of people planning on going from further East in Europe like Germany. And I'm sure people from the far east will be attending from travelling across the pacific etc..

Thanks giggles, it's good to have you on here

Can you keep us updated about the convention when things develop, i don't know particularly much because I've always known I can't afford to go, and didn't wanna get my hopes up too much

You need to get a British one on the go too!!
