WorldCon starts in a few hours and I'm ready..... I think.
Here's how I got here.
There was frantic packing
I'm still wondering why I packed mascara. I don't wear it day-to-day so who am I kidding thinking I'm wearing it around the convention? And if I do put it on I'm most likely to do the ole "bunny rub" on my eyes and end up looking like a failed Goth.
I did have some help packing:
That's Missy (I think she used to be a he and his name was Matthew). She was a gift from my grand nephew and he has her twin. Missy made the trip with me, and she's very excited about her first SF convention.
Leg one was the "jaunt" to Chicago. Since I slept through the vast majority of it, I'd have to say it went quite well. And O'Hare has this cool tunnel sculpture--
I feel quite lame that I didn't take a picture of the ironing board, but I can share my hotel door with you --
Now this is significant in and of itself, but allow me to quote from the hotel's in room directory when it is explainging how the hotel is designed on Feng Sui principles: "Doors symbolize the human voice. Doors that are broken... suggest you will be ignored." I guess that explains why when I called the front desk the first time about the ironing board no one answered, when I went down to the front desk about it what I got was a second iron to go with the broken ironing board.... and my chocolate stolen. lol
Also, if you book your trip at the last minute, here's the view from my room:
Love the laundry!
But just next door here's where I'm heading in a couple minutes:
The other side of the building is considerably more attractive, but I don't have an overall exterior view of that yet. Wanna see it from the inside?
Well folks, I'm going to get wandering. Must see what I can see! Talk to you later.......
