9 years ago @ HijiNKS ENSUE - A Geek... - The 5 Days Of SDCC: Day 5 · 1 reply · +3 points
By the time I was at my hotel sunday night I had lost all ability to recall thoughts regarding names, times, places, my own name, my family, where I actually live and how I was getting back there. My body was attempting to shut itself down after 5 days of soft pretzels, coffee, cookies and red meat. (Though "meat" is a generous word.) Despite my hotel being in fucking Mordor, they did have a great breakfast so there was a bit of nutrition happening. And the shuttle service from Mordor was wonderful. Frodo should've been so lucky.
But, despite all of these things, I'm already blocking off the dates for next year. I can't stay away. Exhaustion, euphoria and realizing your mere feets away from the beards of The Vikings is better than any drug.
SEE YOU NEXT YEAR! (Threat? Warning? Excitement? All of these things?)

I don't understand that need to be first. We're all going to the same place. Crazy people, I be you'd be a lot less stressed if you'd just wait until your damn row is called.
I tend to be very zen about travelling because.....because. It is what it is. Maybe that comes from travelling with my former flight attendant mom so much when I was a kid. But, I don't want to talk to people (much like the rest of my life) and so when people push and shove or get loud or decide to ignore the Headphones of Don't Bother Me, I do tend to get stressy.
Just booked my flight to SDCC this week. Can't wait! It's my first con since SDCC 2011.

I love horror now, I just still have huge gaps.

I'm also currently taking a friend through what we're calling her "Nerducation." She's totally into GOT and Doctor Who now. She did Firefly on her own last summer. I'm working her through movies right now. Last night was Alien though I was pushing Cabin in the Woods. She insisted she'd seen Alien but just a long time ago but that she'd rather watch that than Cabin in the Woods because she's not into horror/gore. She did not believe me when I insisted that Alien is a horror film that just takes place in space! "No it isn't! I've seen it!" Until we got half way in though and she realized she hadn't ever seen it and it IS a scary movie.

If I don't impose these restrictions I will lose all sense of time and place and my muscles will stop working like I've gone into rigor mortus. Video game achievements play right into all my OCD needs to check things off lists and be done 100%.

And then I watched it in my twenties and my reaction was mostly "OHHHHHHHH I GET IT."
