It’s the final day of the scifi convention and I must say this has been such an amazing experience! These cons are what Cheers is to the drinking crowd…everybody knows your name and they appreciate you for who you are 😀 It’s been pretty awesome being able to totally geek out with thousands of other people that are also geeking out!
The highlight of the trip has to be the picture with Denise Crosby. I am such a huge fan so being able to chat with her has been uber cool! She is such a nice lady and seems to really enjoy hanging out with her adoring fans!
There was an opportunity to bid for an hour with Denise. I tried by darndest to win the bidding but it was just a little out of my price range. As luck would have it, the young man stopped by my table yesterday. And he’s actually a really awesome guy. I hope he comes by today so I can ask him how it was hanging with Denise Crosby for an hour!
One of the coolest vendors was this gentleman that dresses up like a mad scientist. He has the most breathtaking collection of hand-made steampunk/scifi gadgets. Everything is made from something antique mixed with more modern pieces also. If I had unlimited money, I would totally buy everything he had.
Although this Con has been a blast and a half, I am also exhausted and excited to get back home. I need to get a frame for my picture with Denise and hang it in my office! 😀 My students are going to be so annoyed with me in class on Tuesday as I plan to subject them to various pictures from the event 😉
