Thoughts, Nonsense, Neurosis, Boom

it's times like this is SO miss WA. i missed RadCon (sci fi convention) for the first time since i was 17. i mean, i'm not SO much into sci fi (ok, a little) but i would go and act like a freak for a weekend with my friends in a hotel filled with other freaks and free alcohol. it was perfect.

it ended sunday. i want to curl into a ball and scream.

all this past weekend i've been remeniscing about RadCons past. here's some high points:

  • getting a contact high while watching space ghost and playing mancala with my bestest friend in the whole wide world.
  • getting my groove on to The Safety Dance at the mini dance/rave/whatever thing they had going on at night. i was normally quite a bit drunk/high at this point, so i'm sure i looked pretty hot (har har).
  • running around a hotel in a cat dress, ears, tail, mardi gras beads, and a leash:
  • stalking the goth boys.
  • stalking the gamer boys (which was usually not hard, as they never moved far from their computers).
  • getting lost in the hotel and not caring. playing on the elevators and scaring the guests in the non-convention wing.
  • breaking my bestest friend's #1 room rule, twice, with different people (hella).
  • making new friends while confusing their room for my friends' room, and them not caring because they were just as drunk as i.
  • quiet moments alone in the anime room, collecting thoughts and trying to hold down my lunch.
  • pop tarts, soda, and dill pickles for dinner. and breakfast the next day...and lunch...
  • stumbling into a hotel room at 4am drunk, trying to see which spot on the floor is available for crashing on.
  • waking up in the morning and seeing who ended up sharing the bed together (!!)
  • waking up in the morning and everyone seeing who i was sharing the bed with (yee haw)
  • whips, chains, handcuffs, wings, leather, cloaks, swords, daggars, fangs, leashes, horns, corsettes, heels, boots, belly dancers, tigers, fire dancing, wet t-shirt contests, mystery drinks, toxic waste, pizza, badges, hand stamps....whew. and (my favorite part) friends.
i miss it SO much.

I missed it, too.. I don't have much money lately and there wasn't anyone that I really wanted to go to see or anything in particular that I wanted to do. I would have if you were still around, though, just for that cat costume. *laughs*

man, you commented quick. i just posted that 30 seconds ago.

yeah, i miss the good old days when there was the whole group of us that went and shared a room together. that was so awesome. i guess with everyone moving away, it's just not the same.

Ah, the joys of conventions. I feel sorry for you, hope you have better luck getting to more.
