I just got back from my astonishing Canada trip. It was a blast, start to finish. This was due largely to my awesome pals Robby and Relee.
What all did I do? Well...
I saw Avenue Q, I went to Condition: Blue, I went to a humongous flea market nestled in the woods, I drank lots of Orangina and Five Alive, I ate lots of Kinder Eggs, I drove a tiny pointy RC ice cream truck, I went to innumerable comics/collectibles shops and resale stores, I got skritched and hugged a lot, I played Cards Against Humanity, I played Mouse Guard the RPG as Liam the scout, I commissioned KV1NN4 for a drop-dead perfect pic of Fifi wearing Gadget's coveralls, I ate poutine, I ate Mozza burgers, I ate at a charming little Chinese place called the OK Restaurant, I slept on a big comfy couch, I found perfect knockoff G1 Seekers at a dollar store, I found a damn-near-new Alternators Hound in a Value Village for $2.99, I found Ultimate Optimus Prime in a comics shop for thirty bucks while he shelfwarmed at $90 everywhere else, I got to see a two-year-old being enchanted by fursuiters, I participated in an epic Nerf tournament, I watched hours upon hours of Dennou Coil and Hell Teacher Nube, I printed up copies of my new novel's prologue to distribute at the con (then promptly forgot them at home), I bought three new cuddly plushies: two possums and a hyena, I gave a guy at the con money to help him buy a plush dragon and he was completely floored, I rode around in a customized Plymouth muscle car with the license plate "YIFFY", I found out that Canadian $100 bills have freakin' plastic windows in them, I bought a lot of books, I helped a friend hunt for Pony merchandise, I took so many pictures there was only one slot left on my memory card at the end of the trip.
I had an absolutely amazing time with wonderful friends and, as much as I'm glad to be back to normalcy, I wouldn't have traded an instant of it for anything.
Also, It's weird that I can truthfully say that I was in Washington during Obama's inaguration, and in London during the Olympics. ;)
