Day One – Gally 2017
Ok, when is it going to freaking stop raining! I mean seriously. It was a freaking hurricane this morning walking the 2 blocks to the Convention Hotel. (I’m not in the Convention Hotel because I couldn’t take the day off needed to be there when the room sold out fast).
Fortunately, I have functional Cosplay.
That umbrella was godsend. 🙂
I may have to do the same one over again today (which I have never done) because they say it is supposed to rain again… 😦
Well, after making making my way through the Hurricane to the hotel and registering I ventured into the Dealers room which had only opened just recently and found that several of the Guests were signing autographs already!
Yeah. I knocked out 3 right then and there. Paul McGann, Lalla Ward and Louise Jameson in the first 20 minutes! Yeah!!
Then I spent 2 hours in a Chronic Hysterisis Standing in line for a Photo Op. Get Photo Op. Get back into a new line and Repeat. 5 times.
So I missed a lot of panels on Day One.
Say about half of Hattie Hayridge (Female Holly- Red Dwarf), the Lalla Ward, and The Inside K-9 Panel.
Then I got 3 more of the Autographs I wanted.
I paid for one of the Receptions (opposite Paul MacGann and the Torchwood Panel) and had a good time there as well.
So I got 85% of my tasks accomplished with having to sacrifice most of the panels in the deal.
I can live with that.
On to Day 2. The big, long, Saturday.
