Closing Time - Semisonic
Sunday
For my last day at the convention I started out wearing levi's and my LotR style DASFA tee shirt. I got some complements on both and so my ego was quite gratified. The selection of cereals in the consuite was suitably horrifying. Lots and lots of very sugary breakfast concoctions including a box of "green slime" cereal. I could have easily gone into insulin shock eating almost anything there, but I found a box of grape-nuts hiding in the corner. There were many discussions of the relative merits of different items for the first meal of the day.

I'll have to let everyone from the convention know that I have this up now so they can come correct my mistakes now.

Delvian Dreams – Farscape Soundtrack
Saturday
I woke up about 8:30am when Rose did. She wandered off to the consuite without me because I warned her that I would probably take 30 minutes in the shower. When I finally arrived in my Farscape outfit to snag a bagel for breakfast it was about 9:30. I got numerous complements on how my peacekeeper vest and vinyl pants went with the whole space pirates theme.

Albuquerque - Weird Al
Friday
I did get up early, not that it helped me much. I take far too long getting ready to go in the morning. Blazing speed for me is to be showered in just half an hour and frequently I'll take an hour getting ready in the morning. I managed to keep it down to 45 minutes and packing up my bags took 35. So I was out the door at 7:25, only about 25 minutes later than I wanted.

Or
Road Trip to Albuquerque!

My convention experiences seem to start with a customary last minute rush to buy things and get packed. Perhaps if I were a different person I could be utterly organized and waltz out the door without a worry in the world. Being me I spent my time after work on Thursday going to my credit union and several stores. I needed food for the trip and this was also an opportunity to pick up items I'm sometimes reluctant to buy without the excuse that it's for my vacation.

The last task was a visit to an ophthalmologist. Those reading my livejournal probably already know that I woke up on Monday the 25th of August and was quite disturbed to find that I could only see dimly out of my left eye. So I was getting a check up on my eyes and finding out if this was a sign of terribly bad things. It turned out that it might have been because I was reading so long under a high frequency bright light, giving me a mild and more general form of the after image people see after seeing something bright. No permanent harm done, but I should break up my reading in the future. I got home at eight and promptly crashed out after writing for a bit. I could not see very well after having my eyes dilated and I thought I could get up plenty early to pack my bag in the morning.

(P.S. I changed my mind, I'm not going to put my entries behind cuts anymore unless someone actually complains to me. I'm tired of having trying to guess what people find annoying with no actual feed back.)
