Today Ms. Melinda and I are off to Dragon Con. To those of you not in the know, Dragon Con is a multi-media, pop culture convention focusing on science fiction & fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film. And it's all taking place in Atlanta, a mere 4-hour drive from Chez Melinda.
In short, it's Nerd-vana. Yes, I really wrote that. *insert giggle/groan here*
Honestly, this has been a last minute decision. We weren't sure whether we were going to go at all. Because... you know, the 'Vid. Even though we're both vaccinated, being around that many people is still pretty nervous-making. But then we found out two of our favorite authors, the awesome Jim Butcher and amazing Patricia Briggs were going to be there... And we folded like the cheap cardboard cutout fangirls that we are.
So wish us luck and good immune systems, because we're off on an adventure. Masked up, gloved up, and phasers set to fun. I'm not going to lie, as wary as I am, I'm very much looking forward to it. I've missed being around people, feeling the enthusiasm of other fans, and the general act of being in a new place and seeing new things.
So stay posted for photos and excited babbling about Con stuff here next week.
