Cobra's wild ride!

by
well i made it....45 min bus ride to pittsburgh...got there, stored my luggage at amtrak, made the mistake of taking my tote bag with me (it weighed like 20 lbs or so?  maybe 25) but it had my snacks, some pens, and some sammiches I made to bring in a minicooler.  I had to lug it everywhere, including going up a lot of flights of stairs, some I didnt have to go up

the maps at the con were horrible.  The event listings would say an event was in the puppetorium, so look at map, no such place, so where is it?  plus I had to stay up till 5am to catch the train.

Went to the zoo for the last 4 hours and did sketches and did a few in exchange for sodas from people, heheh

Caugh the train, had to take the computer out of the luggage as it weighed too much.  They said that was considered a carryon, so had to check my 2 suitcases.  So 7 hours to washington DC, got there at 2pm.  5 hour layover, so checked my carryone stuff, for $30 ripoff, and then walked around DC taking pics of everything, going in the smithsonian museums, and looking for satanic symbolism lolz.  Only thing I found was the 3 steps of the federal reserve had 6 stars on each step, 6-6-6  DUN DUN DUN!

So was fun, but walked from amtrack to capital, down to lincoln memorial and then back other side, felt like 10 miles or so.  It was like 85 degrees out, so felt really worn out even with buying some water to drink.  I jumped up on a ledge to rest once and my feet started immediately cramping up... BONITIS!

So back on amtrak, which kinda sucked.  They put us in last car, which shook more than the others did.  I got in first seat WITH NO WINDOW!  also the loud speaker didnt work in our car so we didnt know anything that was going on unless someone came and told us.  We HIT something at aroun 5am...maybe an animal?  dunno, but it delayed train 2 hrs, making it almost a 24 trip, everyone was ready to jump out the windows to get off.

So am now in florida, yay

Bad news....THEY LOST MY LUGGAGE!  All my clothes, all my computer parts, monitor to mousepad, and even my drawing tablet is in them.  No fresh undies after 3 days...so going commando tomorrow.  I really hope they find them, i think they'll UPS them directly to the house when found, so hope they find them and nothing's broken in them

so that's my weekend adventure

commissions/comics are on hold for a few days till i hopefully get my tablet back. if not I think they insure them for $250 per bag, which means i can replace computer stuff, but lost a lot of clothes, sucks

on to the crazy stuff, when i get little sleep, I sometimes get creative...one idea I thought up was to make a comedic furry zodiac, compete with symbols, descriptions, and constellations

The one I thought of for canines is the butt sniffer.  The one for fox is a smaller version, but with a red star in its crotch called "the knot" in latin of course when I look that up, cuz well, he's a fox.

If I do it, what other animals should I include?

(EDIT- Luggage haz been found yay)

actually this is the worst so far....i forgot to mention OTHER problems I had....i reactivated my cell phone so i could call people if needed, including my ride, as their was no service at cooncub's place with my carrier.  Paid them, they never turned it on....so no phone

I also shipped a piece of luggage friday UPS, they still havent charged my card...???  so have to call about that tomorrow too

also my train being 2 hrs late, my ride from orlando to titusville had no warning train was going to be late, couldnt call him, when i got to station all their public phones were gone, luckily he was wearing a dog tag (not the military one, but the little bone ones and I figured that must be him and he had generously waited 2 hrs for me.  Otherwise would have been screwed, as both phone number was also in the other luggage lol

No con either, sounds like a train ride to hell and then they even lose your things. Sorry you had such a bad trip and all. Hope you get the things back fast and can keep in touch still. I will be going home when sister works in daytime as this sucks here so should be home from 9 am to 4 pm if not mowing.

wow, sucks.

I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.  ok, maybe my worst enemy, but the rest of them, naah.

as for yer question, I picked my fursona because I was born in the year of the dragon.  as for the actual sign, I dunno.  I never put much thought into a comedic dragon related constellation before, so I gotta think about it fur a bit.

maybe have a dragon about to be eating whatever the next zodiac is....maybe do the same with the canine ones, having them butt sniff their neighbors in the zodiac

This is the reason why I Only travel with handheld and body mount stuff. That, and having my bag lifted from teh hold by some arseole getting lifted at customs for questioning decided he might as well make it worth his while. Fortunately, I was sat right in the coach seat over the compartment so saw him lift a barrel bag. When it didnt turn up at the carusel, headed for next door police station to inform them, then gave them a headache when they asked what was in it, as I started giving them a Detailed list, in Order. 8) Poor bastard was staggering when they came back with it, still open cos they couldnt close it again. 8}

Just be glad you didnt have the fun I had back in 2010. Coming back from relatives, usually only 4 hour journey, the train got cancled due to weather, so was put on a replacement bus instead, which took teh scening route, over the mountain pass, at night, no lights, with roadworks, and me just recieved a particularly nasty infection from a toilet in the groinal region. So, 6 hours in teh middle of nowhere with the ferrets of hell gnawing at my pants. 8}

So, bit late for this time, still, for extreme convos. Safety pin spare clothing to the inside of your coat where possible.

Especially pants.

You can walk almost anywhere wearing only pants, and get away with it.
