Obstacle course! July 21, 2009 Posted by Mookie
Otakon was great and I had a fantastic time, but my journey there and back again was filled with annoyances, delays, and every inconvenience one could imagine.

There was the biblical rain storm that nearly blinded me and delayed our trip by three hours.

There was the waste and contamination that was the George Washington Bridge.

There was the fact that our hotel room wasn't ready when we arrived and I got a precious one hour of sleep in the parking lot before having to go to the Artist Alley.

There was the fact that, due to fire hazard rules, I had to put an entirely separate hotel room on my credit card to accommodate some good friends of mine.

There were the stomach problems that delayed our trip home for a few hours.

There was the obscene amounts of traffic due to late-night road work that made me want to kill everyone within a one mile radius of me.

But for all its problems and obstacles, the convention itself had some very pleasant surprises and some very awesome moments. I'll talk about those tomorrow... as well as a proposal to you, my wonderful readers, to help me out with something.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
