Today, I've been working on trying to organize my photos from my England trip, which isn't an easy task, anyway, but it is even worse when I used both a camera (that I had to buy because I forgot mine at home. Gah!!) and the iPhone. Weirdly, the iPhone photos seem to be uploading out of order, which could be a problem when I go to figure out what is what and what is this museum picture of anyway (I started taking pictures of the exhibit descriptions after bemoaning how I couldn't remember the date on the little ancient piggy bank I saw at The Ashmolean.

I had an AWESOME vacation and I cannot even believe how much we did on this trip!! And, as usual, when you take off for any length of time, you hit the ground running as soon as you get back. This time included a bit of jet lag.

In the coming weeks (months) I hope to report a bit on all the fun stuff I did while on "holiday."  I am still pondering the best place to upload them all to once they all make it onto my computer. Suggestions?

Anyway, Dragon*Con is just around the corner. (Hooray!) Anyone on my f-list going, aside from the people I know are going because we are traveling/rooming together?

I am excited because my friend [livejournal.com profile] de23 and I are working on our Sam and Dean costumes! I have never worn a costume in all of the years I have been attending cons so it will be my first time! At some point I will be walking around wearing only one shoe. Hee!!! (And I even found the exact shoes, only the women's version, that Sam wore in Bad Day at Black Rock. Poor Sam. I did watch that one again last night and laughed just as much as I always do. I don't think that episode is ever going to not make me laugh.)

On that note,  I will leave you with two photos from my trip that are total fangirl squee and nothing else. [livejournal.com profile] _leigh_leigh [livejournal.com profile] de23 and her husband K, Brandon, and I had visited The London Eye. Afterwards, Leigh and I were in the gift shop. I was thirsty and I opened the drink cooler and saw this:

DSCI0552

Hee!!!! (I am sure that the cashiers thought I was a complete lunatic snapping photos of their drink case. Crazy Ass tourists.)

Well of course, [livejournal.com profile] _leigh_leigh and I would LOVE to share a diet coke with Sam and Dean! Who wouldn't?!?

So we did.

Awwww. ((((Hugs))))

Hey, I finally got around to looking at my D*C booklet and your name is there under "Attending Professionals."

How cool is that!

I giggled quite a lot during the snapping of those pictures. I think I need to make some icons/user pics out of them!

I am actually staying downtown, this year. My goal is to have an entirely healthy DragonCon. ::fingers crossed:: ::rabbit foot rubbed:: ::Vitamin C pushed::

Are you using the app? We can trade friend codes and find each other, if they ever get the schedules loaded.

Yay! And I have the D*C app. I need to update it is all. Is it through this app or is there another one?

I can't wait to see you again!!

Love the pictures. That's priceless. I look forward to hearing and seeing more of your trip. Still so green here! Can't say I have a photo hosting recc at this point. I only post here and on facebook nowadays. Not good for a volume of pictures.

Wish I could go to Dragon'Con with you all. Have a great time.

Yes, it is really green here, too. It seems like a rainforest to tell you the truth. Typically, the grass is turning brown by this point.

I wish you could come to D*C too sometime. I read in my booklet that they offer discounted airline tickets through Delta for folks flying in so that might be something to remember. As cons go, it's pretty cheap as long as you don't do a ton of autographs and photo ops. I quit doing those, unless its a group thing, a few years ago. Saves me tons of money. (And more for the Dealer rooms if I so desire)

Well maybe someday I can scrape up enough pennies to actually attend D*C.

Actually I meant green with envy over your trip LOL. It's actually very dry up here. Grass is crackling. I'm not complaining though. Felt like we were living in a monsoon zone earlier this year.

The diet coke is fantabulous! And I'm so looking forward to seeing your costume. Granted, I won't know a thing about it, but I'm still excited to see it. ;)
