Well then. Here it is, Monday. As is the norm for a Con, I woke early. 4:00 AM early. Bleah. Oh well, It has the positive that I'm not sure when checkout is for sure anyway. I think its noon, but it could be 10. I'll find out when I go down for breakfast.
So... Sunday, as mentioned in the last post, began with a killer headache. It took several hours but after Excederin, Orudis and about a gallon of strong tea it finally receded. I went online as soon as it was tolerable to do so and did yesterday's post, and yakked with some people (you know who you are! ;) ).
Me and bluedeer
decided to go for breakfast at the little diner just a short walk from the con, and hunterdpanther
, Pat, and murakozi
tagged along, the latter joining us when we got to the restaurant in the Marriot- as we should have known, the diner (like the rest of this town) was closed on Sunday.
After that, we proceeded to the convention center and separated- I picked up the one remaining sketchbook from Saturday, and proceeded to hand out the Sorien book again to Cara Mitten and the three artists with her- for $100 split four ways each is gonna do something in the book, and they'll get it back to me today before noon. :)derechodragon
left at noon, having a long drive home; also, he has work today at 4 AM! Yike! Good luck with that!
Shortly after 1 or 2 PM (I'm not sure which), I received a call- it was tugrik
, who said he was in ConOps, about to leave. I bopped downstairs and said goodbye with a hug. :)
At about 3:00 PM I met up with bluedeer
again, and we walked over to the drug store to fetch more cookies for the Sunday edition of the Tea Party. Once more Oreos and Reeses Cookies were obtained we returned and I finished the cleanup and prep, bluedeer
hanging out as I did.
The Tea Party itself was kinda slow at first, but had two big clumps of attendance so I'm happy with it- at one point we had a fella stop by who wasn't a congoer, and we explained stuff about the con and bitched a little about Pittsburgh, the hotels and the convention center. Just a few of the folk who stopped by- jalendragon
, the previously mentioned bluedeer
and others whom I either don't know the LJ name for, or didn't know/couldn't remember. Glad you all came!
9:30 rolled around, and as there were few people in the room with several wandering off I closed the party down and wandered downstairs- I had a beer-and-burger at the hotel bar, and returned upstairs to bed. And now its 5:00 AM, and I've been awake for an hour. khirsah
left for the airport already, and me and feezlekhan
should be bailing around noon. I do wanna get home, tho I dread the situation in the basement. :P
And thus, Anthrocon endeth. I'll be contacting the constaff with the problems I ran into and the ones I heard of in hopes that things can be fixed... But this is my last AC for now. Next up is Midwest FurFest in November!
