    Bunking with guys is fine. Just don't make any comments you'll regret.

    Not wanting your room to look gay is the absolute worst reason to want a girl roommate, especially if you're looking for a female stranger to fit the bill.

    Seriously dude, its a Transformers convention. Rooms are going to be a sausage fest. Unless the balls touch, don't worry about it.

    Try a bit of 'just friends' spooning, you might enjoy it.

    Especially if you do go with the spooning suggestion.

    I would not use the term 4 ways in this instances........

    (Sorry I could not resist)

    I can tell you that male female it does not make a difference. A lot of people both genders will want to split the cost. So get off the homophob and start talking to people. A lot of people go to the conventions and will not talk to people. One of the things we encourage at the parts party is talking to one another. Male female it does not matter. But of course you know this....YOU WERE THERE!!!!

    If you want to keep it cheap then stay in a different hotel, the cost of four nights in the Swan hotel was equivalent to my entire week long holiday including flights and car rental for 2 people.

    You got a year to get married, or at least get a girlfriend. And that way you have someone to help carry your haul.

    Really don't think any random girl would be up for the "sharing beds" thing.

    We've got a room at the Sheraton that we're willing to squeeze people into.

    At 2010 we were 5 girls and 3 guys; girls got beds, and guys got the floor (for their own reasons -- we offered the beds, but they didn't take it!).

    We're aiming on doing the same thing this time 'round for Pasadena 2011 so the price will drop down to between $80 and $90 for the whole weekend. We'll probably be using a lot of the came people we did on our room for next year (we've already confirmed 4 people from before besides me) so there should be absolutely no issues. You're welcome to a slot with us if you wanted. :) 

    From this last escapade in Florida, I only personally knew three of the four girls in the room, and one girl + all three guys were new to me. We managed to make it work and we all did a little "pow-wow" at the VERY beginning of the weekend and forced everyone to pay up for their share before anything else happened, that way we wouldn't get jipped out of a room.

    This is a joke right? You can't possible be worried that people will think you're gay.
