After writing my TODCon update blog this morning, I had a breakfast
with Ray. He's still under the weather, but he is more relaxed now that
the con is over. I can't blame him - that's a lot of responsibility
both professionally and financially.
I'll admit I am feeling a little down. I am already missing my friends.
Some I know I will see again, but there is an empty spot inside me at
the moment, like something was taken out and not replaced.
Speaking of photography, I have a total of about 230 photos. So, getting things ready will take some time. Most of them are from the conference itself, but I took many tourist pics too. The last time I was here for TODCon, I got to see part of the strip but only at night. This time, it's mostly daytime photos. I'm quite pleased with some of them, but editing is still required.
And - MOST importantly - my quest for a new shirt *GASP!* *Oh, the horror!* was successful! I found one that summed up Vegas nicely and didn't cost my right arm to buy. Tom Green, beware; I have a new shirt and I'm willing to wear it. :-)
I also checked out the Fashion Show Mall and found yet another deal. I'm a big Peanuts fan (Snoopy and Charlie Brown - there are days when I can SO relate to that boy). A store in the mall was closing out and they had 50% off all their merchandise, so I picked up a cool Boy Scout Charlie Brown figure for only $12 US. He will have a prominent place in my office when I return.
I check out in a couple hours. My flight is at (UGH) midnight, which gets me back into TO around 7:30 am on Friday. I'm glad I don't have to work!
Well that's it for me. I'm signing off until next week, when I will post the link to the photos. And it will most likely be later in the week as I play catch up with some ongoing projects. I hope you've enjoyed the updates and it's made ya wish you had been here. All I can say is save your money, and plan on showing up next year. It will be a blast, of that I have no doubt.
