From one to the other...

This past weekend was the Sakura Matsuri festival at the Brooklyn botanic gardens. I had a lot fun wandering around and getting my pic taken. I wore all black and was kinda steampunky/neo-Victorian with a touch of Black Friday & peeps kept wanting to take my pic & get a pic taken with me. Thanks to that & a trip on the train & subway, I've been battling the cold from hell. Yesterday was my sister's bday & honestly, I could have slept through dinner & probably should have stayed home (we went out for Japanese), cuz I wasn't even finished with my soup when they were shoving a bento box in my face (not literally, but still...). The chicken teriyaki which normally is really good, was made of rubber & basically inedible. It was so bad, I spat out a mouthful & dumped it in the uneaten portion of my soup. YUCK!! XD

I'm still sick, but heading out to Zenkaikon this weekend with my sister. It hopefully will be fun. XD I'm leaving tomorrow & taking my steampunky outfits & wearing them with a bigger top hat & different boots. I wondering if it'll be as big a hit this weekend as it was last weekend.

See you all when I get back! <3

The Sakura festival sounds like fun. I hope you have fun at Zenkaikon.

Hope you're feeling better soon

It is! I've gone several times & once went both days as it's a weekend event. :D It's always nice when the weather is good. :D

Thanks x2. My cold seems to have migrated to my chest & if I'm not better by Monday, I'll call the doctor. I'm leaving in an hour, so it's basically treat the symptoms. XD

Ugh to that. I hope it doesn't spoil your fun but yeah it sounds like it wants to become bronchitis or something.

This time was a miss instead of a hit. *sighs* the one panel I would have loved to have gone through was early in the morning on Friday & we were traveling there when it was on. *sighs* They screwed up the room & didn't care, we made the reservation for 2 beds & we got one bed & a pull out sofa that neither one of us wanted to sleep in. I made 2 loops around the dealers' room & wound up so fatigued, which I'm still battling today, that I went back to the room & just wanted Zootopia on the Disney channel. Luckily we ordered in Domino's so dinner was taken care of. The bed was a horror, I'm used to a king by myself & had to share a double with my sister. The air was either too hot or too cold. XD W\hen we woke up, we packed, ate breakfast, & left. It wasn't a total loss, we detoured & went to the King of Prussia mall, which is HUGE. o.0 It took us 20 minutes to find Torrid & we went shopping & then another 15 minutes to get back to the car & home. By then I was so wiped, I could have gone to bed at 6, but I did my laundry & just vegged. The upside to all that, she found us another con to go to in November. :D

It doesn't feel like bronchitis, I still have a mild cough, it's the overwhelming fatigue that's getting to me. Went food shopping earlier & I just want to go back to sleep. XD

Ugh sorry it wasn't such fun.

What is it with crappy hotels any more? Sheesh.

I've never been to King of Prussia mall (opposite side of the state from where my folks are) so I've not seen how big that is.

hope you're feeling better soon

Thanks. I think feeling sick had a lot to do with not really enjoying it.

I know, right? This was a Marriott & you'd think they'd have better service than that. XD

Aaah... I didn't even get to see the whole thing, just going from Macy's to Torrid, left me exhausted. XD Maybe one day, I find my way back, but if not; it's okay, cuz I at least saw parts of it. And I was surprised at the section we did wander through, who can afford to shop in Tiffany's, Cartier's and other high end designer stores? I know, I can't. XD But to be fare, I have been in Tiffany's in NYC. ;P

Thanks, I am, except for the exhaustion.

Being sick surely makes a difference.

The people who can afford those stores aren't like the rest of us.
May. 9th, 2018 12:51 am (UTC)
Yup! And it must be a sign we should move on, since my sister said she was sick last year when we went. XD

This is true. XD
May. 9th, 2018 02:47 am (UTC)
Oh dear that's not good
May. 9th, 2018 02:53 am (UTC)
Nope, but we're excited about our new con in November. :D
May. 9th, 2018 04:00 am (UTC)
what kind of con is it?
May. 9th, 2018 10:42 pm (UTC)
Anime con like the other one. I wish I could go to the steampunk con she's working this weekend, but I don't want to stay overnight at her friend's house. XD Plus I have things I need to do, that need to get done. XD I'll about it when she gets back & see if it was worth it & go next year.
May. 10th, 2018 01:39 am (UTC)
Oh cool. I probably can't get to an anime con until tsubasacon in the fall.

Yeah staying at someone's house is awkward. I have so much to do here too but I'll be going to rathacon for the day this weekend.
May. 10th, 2018 02:15 am (UTC)
Yeah? How is that one?

Yeah, especially since I've only met her once & don't know the friend's boyfriend, who lives with her, at all. Have fun! :D
May. 10th, 2018 03:48 am (UTC)
Tsu is tiny but nice.

yeah I've done that once and it creeped me out.
May. 11th, 2018 12:23 am (UTC)
That's good. :D

*nods* It would creep me out too.
May. 11th, 2018 12:33 am (UTC)
Well if it's good hope you get to go next year and stay at a hotel.
May. 11th, 2018 01:09 am (UTC)
Thanks! :D
May. 4th, 2018 01:45 pm (UTC)
Feel better.
May. 6th, 2018 03:34 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Vexed! *huggles*
May. 5th, 2018 12:42 am (UTC)
Feel better and have fun!
May. 6th, 2018 03:56 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Kat! *huggles*
May. 17th, 2018 02:21 am (UTC)
You're welcome, Kira *huggles*
May. 17th, 2018 02:46 am (UTC)
