9:30 am. This time I had a sandwich from Charlie's Hot Subs for breakfast and had a nice chicken teriyaki sammich and to drink: a Starbuck's banana caramel Frappucino. We grabbed our food and hurried back to the hotel for Greg W's Time Travel Panel.
10:00 am. Greg explained the differences in several approaches of time travel and brought up Back to the Future. He mentioned the two different paradoxes and how one was in reference to the Phoenix gate. He explained the time loop used for the Archmage.
11 am. After Greg had We totally adlibbed our lines. Revel broke out into his fake Eastern Euro accent and I left Christine and Karine came in with the Iron writers and Artist competition. Writers were given notebooks and pens and artists had to use mystery ingredients. The theme we all had to use was Macbeth. The artist's mystery ingredients were Play-doh, feathers, and pipe cleaners.
There were several fun and unique artistic pieces and several writers read their fics out loud. Allaine's was first and he wrote a crossover with Kim possible. My fic involved Macbeth wearing a red Speedo.
Noon The last panel I attended was the coloring panel hosted by Karine, Stephanie Lostimolo, Kyt and Revel. The used Steph's gargoyles Gypsies pic as an example and showed how to create brushes, make light sources and create masks and shade. I loved Stephs's squeals of "Wheeeee"
2:pm The end of another con ended with Jen thanking everyone for being here and the awards were handed for the music videos and art show. Y2Hecate came up and pointed everyone into the right direction of Pigeon Forge for 2007. She mentioned there were plenty of pancake houses nearby and earned a woot from Greg Weisman.
We hung out in the room for about an hour before we organized a group for Linner at the mall food court. Revel and I got several Arbies sammiches. We got into several discussions until six and we got up to return to the hotel. I bought a couple scoops of Gelato before we left, caramel pistachio and crème Brule flavors.
We hung out in Aaron's room along with Gside, Y2Hecate, Jeb, Jade Griffin, Jonathon, Aaron, Mara, Lynati, Ckayote, Y2Hecate, and Leo. Y2Hecate had to leave around six and Mara napped for a few hours. Lynati left to have dinner with Ellen. I got my floppy notebook and laptop and started to work on my con journal until eleven. That was when Revel and I returned to our room to pack, load up the minivan with the large suitcases, helped Aaron, Mara and Lyn with their luggage and get some sleep.
Tuesday: June 27
We got up at 4:30 am and apologized to Gregx since he also heard the alarm and left the room. We paid for our stay and entered the minivan, from between 5 and nine I dozed on and off and then I got hungry. We stopped at a Loves for snacks and drinks before we continued.
We got to see a lot of scenery we didn't see before because it was dark. We saw a circle of light around the sun along with a circular rainbow and lots of neat rock formation. This time we didn't get a motel on the way and pushed on. We stopped at a Chilies in El Paso where everyone but Aaron doodled on a napkin and passed it around. I had the fajita quesadillas. We switched drivers and didn't return to San Antonio until 5: 45 am.
Wednesday: June 28
Slept in. Ah sweet sleep, woke up, ate and just relaxed at Aaron's. Aaron, Mara, and Lyn checked their favorite online sites and I worked on my con journal until late afternoon. We went to the H.E.B to check Mara's schedule and get some soda and cat food, and then to McDonald's for dinner. I had a quarter pounder with cheese combo.
We watched the Sealab 2021 DVD until 10:00 and I returned to work on the Con Journal until after 1: am when I got ready to sleep.
Thursday: June 29
Revel and I loaded our things onto Hyena, said goodbye to Aaron, Lynati and Mara before we drove back to Conroe.
We arrived at the Kroger were I work first to check my schedule and get a few necessities…including my past two checks before we went to the bank. MONEY yaye!
After going to the bank we returned home and thus ends another Con Journal.
I love the level of detail in your journals, Spacie.
So Aaron lives with Mara AND Lynati?
