I'm back! :D

Just got back from AnimeNext. My sister was complaining about being sick & after a HUGE blowout with her, I went my myself. I really shouldn't have bothered. IT was over crowded, couldn't find any of the panels, the anime channel wasn't working in my room (which was huge & I had it all to myself XD), and it was kinda lonely. I knew going it, it was more of a costumed hangout than anything else, just didn't realize how much I'd miss the company. XD I did get to see a friend form DA that I've seen in previous years & that was nice. :D I ate in the hotel "restaurant" instead of the bar, but it was basically the same food. I had penne ala vodka, let's just say I make it better at home with a jar of sauce, but at least it was hot. For dessert, I went back to the dealer's room, (which aside from artist alley) is what everyone does, and bought a Japanese cake roll. Think sponge cake with vanilla & chocolate (in THIN LAYERS) rolled up inside it. It was okay, but not great. Then I wandered around again until 9, when I had a head from the crowds & idiots screaming "DO IT!!!" *rolls eyes*

A couple of people took my pic, I didn't take anything as there was no point. I did sit fro a while in costume in the lobby & read my book on Frederick the Great. (I was dressed as a modern version of fem!Prussia & I wore an outfit I normally wear, so quite comfy.)

When I went back to my room, I watched TV & read. Then I showered, big mistake as I slipped in the shower as I was getting into it. *cries* I nearly went arse over tea kettle, but saved myself from serious injury by leaning forward & grabbing the granny bar. Unfortunately I jammed my toes against the side of the tub. I woke up with a sore, purple & swollen toe. I think I broke it. T.T It's on my right foot, which is my driving foot. Since it kinda hurt walking on it, I skipped the dealer's room & checked out & came home.

The program book they give out had a box of green tea pocky in it. I have to try it & see how it tastes. I also got a couple of handfuls of salt water taffy from the womaen who was there, talking about the new home of ANimeNext. Needless to say, I won't be driving to Atlantic city next year. XD I also picked up some manga & art for a couple of friends, and I got myself a lil llama or alpaca for myself & and cute lil plush sheep keychain.

*is happy to be home*

Dang girl, you and your feet, I swear. I'm sorry you had a crappy weekend especially after you'd been looking forward to a treat.

I know, right? XD At least it's my right foot instead of my left. XD

*sighs* Yeah... Needless to say, I won't be going back next year.

well most of that sucks. Sorry it wasn't more fun
Jun. 14th, 2015 09:38 pm (UTC)
Yeah... *sighs* Thanks. At least it was only an over-nighter, but still. XD

yeah. did you at least find something fun in the marketplace

Now that I think about it, Trying on a kimono was fun! If only my hips were a lil smaller, I would have bought it. I was a pretty pale blue, almost like seafoam. It was simple & plain with a design woven into the fabric & supposedly vintage. :D

And there were tons of cute things in the marketplace as well as artists' alley.

Seriously, this con outgrew the place it was in, so not as much fun. I spent most of Zenkaikon on my own as my sister was sick for that one too, but at least I found some peeps to hang with, plus there were panels when & where they were supposed to be.

I hear you about overgrown cons. I've been to ones like that. I hate being slammed by crowds
Jun. 15th, 2015 03:36 am (UTC)
*nods* yeah, it's not pleasant. I think I must have said, "Sorry" & "excuse me" a million times on Saturday. XD I also had it said to me roughly the same amount of times too. XD

it's one reason I know I'll never go to Comicon even though I always sort of wanted. (It's also why I never went to Madri Gras in New Orleans)
Jun. 15th, 2015 06:31 pm (UTC)
I hear you! Comicon would be sooo easy for me to get to, but I also refuse to go cuz of the crowds. I traveled into the city that weekend & it was a nightmare on the train. XD

i bet it was
Jun. 16th, 2015 02:00 am (UTC)
*nods* Never again will I plan any trips into the city on that weekend. XD
Jun. 16th, 2015 02:54 am (UTC)
don't blame you there

Sorry the con was a bust.
Jun. 20th, 2015 11:47 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Kat. It started out bad, & that should have been a clue... >.
