Tag: Labor Day

And thus, I return.

 

Hey y’all!  I’m back, and I survived!

Dragon*Con, of course, was super duper fun.  I wore three rockin’ costumes and met lots of great people and did lots of fun things and had lots of kickin’ times.  And, of course, I took a ton of photos of amazing people in their amazing costumes!

Jon and I got back yesterday evening and I careened right back into work today.  In case y’all forgot (or didn’t know), I am helping to plan CenterFest, a giant arts festival coordinated by the Durham Arts Council, where I work.  I hope to start getting my Dragon*Con recaps up soon, but CenterFest planning is so exhausting and work is so stressful right now that when I get home I can barely form a coherent thought.  Also, I am traveling A LOT this month for weddings (EVERYONE IS GETTING MARRIED) and also the High Holidays.  So, it might be a little bit before I fully recap Dragon*Con, because there is a lot to tell!

In the meantime, a few photos to whet your appetite!

Fun right!  Hope y’all had a great Labor Day as well, I look forward to sharing my Dragon*Con with you!

 

2 Days to Dragon*Con: Making the Wait Go More Quickly

How are you doing with the wait, guys?  This whole going to work thing is not easy, especially because I have a number of major deadlines at work this week and I need to get them all done by Wednesday, so I am incredibly busy and really, I just want to look at Dragon*Con stuff and think about Dragon*Con and talk about Dragon*Con.

So here are some of the things I am doing to mitigate the anticipation:
1)  This blog (duh).  Having a place to count the days is certainly helpful!

2) Big giant happy smiley faces scrawled all over Labor Day Weekend on my calendar.

3) Playing with the Dragon*Con iPhone app, lots and lots.

4)  Eyeing the 2012 Dragon*Con photo scavenger hunt list and trying to figure out where to find all these things–my two big person win photographs from last year were running into Dr. Stephen Granade and finding Timmy the ThinkGeek Monkey.

7)  Listening to this podcast on repeat.  So many bands that I liked from my band profling are in it!  CalabreseEgo LikenessI: ScintillaDie SektorCruxshadows!  A really good song by The Extraordinary Contraptions!  So exciting, and a great way to get hyped for Con!

8) Packing (ungh).

9) Futzing with the last little bits of my costumes and my wigs and my makeup and my accessories.

10) Excitedly waiting to go pick up my Melisandre dress!

Again, those are just a few things that are keeping me sane until Thursday morning comes and I can get on the road to Atlanta.  How are you managing these last few days before Dragon*Con?
