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 (
/), 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!

    Oh, my darlin' Jezzie...I'm not standing beside ONLY you, remember. ;) The difference is? You move up here to live with me, and I bet you'll have the willpower. The Guy is on my other side there--he has been living with me, facing my daily attempts to make us both healthier, I tried setting a good example for him, and he rebelled. Pretty sure he did so to the point where he put on more weight.

    Someday, yes. And I'll be cheering you on the entire time! emoticon

    She looks extra tiny because she's standing next to her bestie who hasn't got nearly her willpower. Someday! D:

    @Elphyy: I have to admit, looking tiny is a bit of an optical illusion. XD Especially by that point in the trip I was SO BLOATED from eating so much and not drinking enough water! But I did have a few people who saw me last year comment that I've lost significant weight, so that felt really good and is so motivating for next year! And maybe next year you can come out and we can have a meet up? ^_^

    @Lexagon: Thanks! And I hope you get to go someday. On one hand, you're paying for the privilege to buy more stuff at the con booths, but the energy in the air and being able to mingle with fellow geeks is so worth it!

    @Ooplaw: Oh, definitely try to go some time! I suspect that there won't be so many grand reveals next year (I plan to go and plan to spend the entire time in costume and not really going to panels), but even then it's still worth it. I plan to do a bigger post later...might not be until next week because I have a wedding to go to this weekend, but I'm going to try to document the entire trip! I just get really wordy, so already it's quite long! XD
