Too Damn Close, and I Give Up

19 08 2010

I give up! I can’t not talk about Dragon*Con. It’s too damn close and not close enough. I can’t wait. Anyone got a TARDIS? Time machine of any sort? no? Damn.

I can’t wait to see all the Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, DC Comics, Marvel, anime, Doctor Who, Torchwood, BSG, Buffy and Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, video game and many other cosplayers. Okay, those links all link to zazzle, and I get money if you buy anything from Zazzle within 45 days after clicking those links, but the links are relevant to their hypertext. Buy from them, buy from me. I need the money. I can’t get a job, I’ve been trying. So please.

Please?

Okay, anyway. I still can’t fucking wait ’til Dragon*Con… how many more days is it? Shit! that many? Damn you, time, and your apparent linearity even if you are wibbly wobbly and all that. Grr.





Dragon*Con II

11 09 2009

Okay, so I arrived in Atlanta on Friday about 1… I had a test in French otherwise I would have skipped and gotten there in the morning. I basically wandered around the Con for a few hours, checking out the dealers’ tables and costume spotting until I could check into my hostel and then go to the first event I wanted to see. It was a showing of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and, after, a showing of the Buffy musical, Once More with Feeling. So after I checked into my Hostel I headed over to the Sheraton Hotel where the event was only to discover that the line was wrapped around the building. Giving up, I sat down on the stairs next to two people who weren’t in line either, and we started talking. Those two people were Ian and Maia, who I mentioned in my previous post. The event was entertaining, but after was better.

It started slowly with just Maia, Ian and me. Then we joined up with one of Maia’s friends, Teeter (I don’t remember her real name.) Then after that we met up with Sam and a couple of random guys I never saw again. There was a small amount of alcohol passed around that night. When I say small, I mean a few sips here and there… despite the fact that I’m 20. We stayed up til well into the morning… about 3.00 or so. It was fun, especially when Teeter pulled out her ukulele. Finally, we decided it was time to go to bed, and I discovered Ian was staying at the same hostel as I was.
