Lots of stories to come, but a few highlights:
Seeing my bestie, Jezzie! And all the other Portent Alliance people!
Meeting Fyreuni of Daiy Quests comic (http://daily-quests.com/comic
/), and getting all her buttons to decorate my lanyard.
Being able to get Leo's goodie bag, badge, t-shirt, and other items. He was feeling down that he couldn't go, but it really helped cheer him up.
Yes, I have signed up for the annual pass. TYREAL'S CHARGER?! HELLS TO THE YES!
Fangirling all over Christie Golden again. Jaina book is confirmed. She said that it'll "be different--not what people are expecting." I trust Christie on this one.
Seeing Cadistra jump about 2 feet into the air at dinner one night. Why? Samwise Didier was eating at the next table over, and she fangirls all over him. Mew asked him to come over while Cadi wasn't paying attention. He squatted down beside/behind her, she had no idea he was there, and in his best Samurro voice he goes, "SO WHAT ARE WE EATING?!" First it scared her, then she realized who it was and she FREAKED! In the end, he remembered her work (she had given him her business card last year), he gave her his work email address (written on the back of her badge), and told her to send him her latest work! So excited for her!
I think this last pic says it all...
Oh yes. We got a tour. Granted, it wasn't as good as it could have been since most of the building was off-limits to visitors, but still SO AWESOME.
Such a fun trip!
