A week later, and I'm back from the Con! I have to say, this was the best one yet. It felt very smooth, I wasn't overly tired, no Con Flu (thanks, Purell) and there were so many amazing things to see. Lots of celebs walking the floor - Hiro (Masi Oka) stopped by Small Press and there were tons more.Bad
:No less than two
attempts of stealing at my booth - one resulting in rudeness, the other in throwing
my items back at me. Insanity.Good
: I got to spend a lot of time with friends I see only once a year, I got three roundabout job offers/opportunities while sitting there, and I came home with a lot less product. Some things even sold out, which means I can't rest and have to restock. A good problem to have.Odd
: I ran into Lou Ferrigno 3 times, who was staying at my hotel. Someone asked me if I was sharing a room with him, uh - no.
I had a lot of blog readers come by and they even brought me presents which was awfully nice, and they weren't ticking time bombs - thanks stalkers!
The biggest hit was the FREE Hello Kitty Wolverine buttons that I handed out. People came from all over just for those! Also I got to sit next to my favorite booth mates and got to watch her make her Beastlies
in action. Truely adorable. Buy her stuff! She is amazing!
Oddly enough, I really missed cooking and driving my car. Weird. Oh yeah, and my kids. Forgot about them. Of course I didn't. Like any good mom filled with guilt, I brought home a ton of junk for the kids
to make sure that they still love me. It should last a week. Then I'll have to get creative.
But who cares, you just want to know who won the Hello Kitty pasta
, right? Random Number Integer came up with #31 Kate
and #1 Jennifer
. Say, that is random. Congrats! Email me your address so I can send it right out!
