here. I meant to get this up sooner, but the con crud was bad this year. I've still got some fluid in my lungs, but I don't want to die anymore so that's an improvement. Here, at last, is what went down on Saturday and Sunday.
Having gone to bed around midnight on Friday I woke up earlier than I had to. My interview with Casper Van Dien wasn't until 3:20 so I hadn't planned on getting in until around 2:30. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The parade is great, and I would happily still go if I was staying in a host hotel the whole weekend. The crowds are so crazy on Saturdays though that I wanted to put off dealing with them as long as I could. As I was drinking my morning coffee I got an email from media relations that my interview had been moved up to 2:20 which meant that my casual, lazy morning was over. I also got a text from The Phantom Troublemaker asking me to pick up some drain-o for his stopped up sink since Hilton maintenance still hadn't been up to fix it. Unclogging a sink seemed a small price to pay for a place to sleep Saturday night so I roused Mr. Tibbs to get us moving earlier. Parking at the Doraville MARTA station was a nightmare on Thursday and Friday so I was going to have him drop me off both to avoid trying to find parking and having to pay for parking overnight.
The interviews will be posted starting later this week so keep checking back in for all of our Dragon Con coverage.
