Off to Otakon!

So it's bright and early, well not so bright since it's really early... ajmeow was saintly enough to drive me to the airport at 5am. I owe her big, like giving her a kidney big.

Anyway, I get to the airport in plenty of time, but I'm using a new suitcase for this trip. Wouldn't you know it, it's over 50lbs. -_- So I have to pay extra because of the weight... this is not a good way to start out a trip. Well the bag is huge and do tend to over pack. It looks like I'm over by 7lbs. I haven't a clue what that could be. I'll just have to cram more stuff into my carry-on on the way back.

I'm blogging because, well I'm waiting to board the plane and there isn't enough time to break out the laptop to watch a movie.

So instead I'm using my PDA to enter LJ entries. So whenever I get a free moment, I'll ramble for a bit. It's not live, live but only when I get a chance to sync the PDA. Don't you just love technology?

Let's just hope it works and not nuke everything I just typed. :)

So far I haven't seen any other obvous cosplayers or Otakon goers. Don't tell me I'm the only one insane enough to head out this early. -_- Maybe I'll see some on the connecting flight out of O'Hare.

1:05pm - Chicago
Wow, O'Hare is huge and it looks pretty nice. Well for the 3 minutes of seeing it walking from my San Jose flight to the men's room and then to me Baltimore flight.

Off to Baltimore I go.

4:57pm - Baltimore
Wee I'm here! Got a shuttle and heading to the hotel now. Lili isn't checking in until 9 tonight so I'll check my luggage and wander around I guess. I'll go register for the con and see if I can find some farmilar faces.

Man is it humid here. Some of my costumes are going to be hell (Squall and Ohagmi). Lets hope the AC n the convention center is turned way up.
