I'm semi-excited right now..

I guess it wont fully set in until I finish Saturday's Tennis Social matches...currently I'm more excited about playing tennis for 6 hours straight potentially than anime...

Can't wait, though now I'm pretty much in wait mode until I decide to pack at the last minute.

It's the FINAL COUNTDOWN!!!!!!! Who's ready for Otakon 2009!!!!!!! Every year 22,000 people from around the world flock to the baltimore convention center for the biggest convention on the east coast. Thiss will be my 8th Otakon and I look forward to it every year, it's almost like the superbowl, wrestlemania, the world series all rolled into one big event.

I did laundry last night. Guess who's packing a week AHEAD!

Yes I am obsessed. Plus I average two outfits per day. Some outfits I don't want to wear while presenting panels. I don't think gonguro and lolita is alright to wear for certain subject I'm coverings. Well I might be lolita for the yaoi panel just to match my Miwako co panelist.

I have SO MUCH CRAP to do still to get ready for the Artist's Alley! Guess who's not sleeping this weekend. Although that might be a good thing - I had this nightmare the other day that the AA got moved to some strange small room and my PVC stand didn't work and I had to carve my backdrop out of these large wax panels and half my merchandise got stolen. ;___;

It hasn't set in for me yet either. Still feels like an insane amount away...the most exciting thing that happened to me today was that I finally figured out how to get custom ringtones on my ghetto phone. And I ate too much Chinese food.

Although...my friend is currently ranting about how Vic Mignogna is coming to Otakon. But I see no signs of that. O_o But she seems so excited, I'd hate to burst her bubble...

Oh, really? That's true...he could be something aside from a featured guest...but you'd think his official site would say something about that then, but his site doesn't have Otakon listed on the convention list.

Don't get me wrong, I'd be pumped if Vic was there. Travis and Vic in the same place seems amazing. =O

I didn't make any costumes this year (save for my Mario one, but I bought everything for that at Wal Mart!) and the only thing I need money for is my hotel. I've been more or less ready for Otakon since...Otakon ended last year! o_o; I'm pretty excited to go to the beach though!

I got 4 days of work left until I start my vacation on Tuesday which involves me going to Warped Tour in Columbia on Tuesday then relaxing and seeing Harry Potter 6 on Wed before going to pre reg on Thursday. I have a few things to get done before the con like get the Japanese Wrestling Panel presentation finished and work on a pamphlet for something else.

Well this is gonna be a first in my life. My very first anime con, and I really hope I can accomplish the goals I said I wanted to do at this thing. But if there's one thing I won't do, it's dress up. Sorry people, cosplaying isn't my thing. But I do know just the right clothes to wear.

I'm not even close to being ready. I'm still waiting for the final piece of my Friday cosplay to come in, I need to finish a few pieces for the other costumes, and then the packing process begins. My boyfriend and I will be driving from PA to DE and then to Baltimore on Thursday...and then its gofer orientation for me. I'm excited but just worried that I won't get everything finished on time O.o.

There will be very little sleep til Otakon...and during Otakon lol.

Oh, yeah, when I get on the road, THAT'S when I'll get hyper.

The thing is, we go up the same road that we go up to get to Otakon all the time...like, in order to get to my dentist we have to go through the same town and everything...and when we happen to go through that town when it's dark and the streetlights are on...it reminds me of how it looked when we drove through there at 2 AM to get to Otakon and it makes my stomach feel all excited. xD It does that no matter how far Otakon is away now and it's kinda annoyingggg.
