Twas the night before AWA,
When all through the condo
All the creatures were stirring,
Well except for the husband who has to work and drive to Atlanta tomorrow.
Really I should be in bed. But apparently drinking Code Red and eating ice cream makes it kinda difficult to sleep . Or stop surfing the internet for weird horror movie topics. I am beginning to think that Asians have it worse that Blacks in regards to survival rates. This needs more investigation.
But yes folks. It is time for another adventure into Anime Land! WEEEE conventions.
Of course after Japan can any anime convention ever compare? Still I am excited. And please I am not one of the MANY displaced convention goers. Apparently those who booked on Friday and Saturday at the convention hotel had a great chance of being bumped to another “close by” hotel. Apparently hotels are like airplanes in which they grossly overbook in hopes that people cancel.
Well not many people cancelled and tons are being forced into other hotels with only a 10 dollar food voucher to show for it. I hope that those in charge of the convention are really upset over this matter and their calm demeanor online addressing this issue is just them trying to be professional 2 days before the event. I feel really bad for those affected by this sudden CHANGE as plans have been made like 8 months in advance and this is ridiculous.
Another MOG miss was the fact that my husband is not forced to work all day tomorrow. He will be free at 2pm so we can drive like crazy people to get to the hotel, obtain our badges, and spend money at the SuperHappyFunSell. Not ideal but not the worse it could be.
A happy little extra for AWA is that they are utilizing the iPhone App that allows to you download the schedule and get updates throughout the convention. Yay AWA scheduling APP. Of course I will still carry around my paper schedule just in case. Just in case is always a good game plan for away trips.
X__X I might be super busy this convention. Tons of panels, cosplay meet ups, and other events I want to attend. Not to mention I need to spend all my money in the Dealer’s Room yes?
On my must do list is the Costume Contest, How to Make Your Own Plushie Mascot, the Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica cosplay meetup, and the Pokemon gathering. But some of the other things I want to do overlap or are way too close to each other. I guess having too much to do is never a bad thing but I wish it was more spread out so I have more to do on Sunday.
In conclusion I should probably be in bed already as I am going to have a busy weekend. I shall be armed with my own bottle water, Vitamin C, and hand sanitizer. Not coming back sick this time!!! XD Here’s to having a great time with the husband and about 12,000 other people!
