Whew. What a weekend +1.
Day 1 happenings are not terribly exciting, since I count Day 1 as being Thursday, and Thursday was mostly just getting stuff done in preparation for the next day.
The brother-in-law came into town the night before, and then we all got up late (I was at work until 2:30 in the morning, trying to wrap things up so that I could have a weekend free of work-guilt) and tried out the pizza place around the corner. I think we may very well have found our new delivery pizza place, to replace Savage Pizza. The sauce was spicy and the toppings great, and everybody was super-nice, which seems to be the standard for our new neighborhood.
After that was errand-running, and I sucked it up and went to American Apparel for socks, and then Jennie called to let me know that the registration line was around the block already, so we headed over and met Nick and Miffy to stand in said line for our badges. Thursday is not usually very exciting, line-wise, but much fun was had by all and we went to R. Thomas for dinner, and then dropped everyone back at the hotel and went home. Later, I discovered that Baobh and her husband had arrived that evening, but did not find this out until the following morning, so pooh. We saw much more of them the rest of the weekend, so that was alright.
At this point, I had no idea what insanity was in store. But I have photos, and will elaborate more on that tomorrow, when we look at Day 2, otherwise known as Friday (and we see how much I remember…)
I just checked out your photos on Flickr.. there are so many great costumes!! Maybe one of these years I’ll end up making it down to DragonCon — or even just the parade.
