Said goodbye to everyone this morning, did fine. Dropped Amanda off at the airport, and got choked up in the car as I drove off. It just kinda hit me then that Trotcon was pretty much over (and listening to Florence + Machine likely wasn’t helping).
- Filly Applejack plushie
- Buttons from Amanda, Dream, Rai, JJ, Pixelkitties, and other artists
- Keychain, tarot cards, and a Baltimore/Bronycon map from Chocolatepony (totally going to use the map in August)
- Keychain from Master Tortilla
- A Redheart commission, a miniprint, and a bookmark from Aspendragon
- A Redheart commission from Rai
- A Redheart commission from JJ
- Celestia print from Valcron/Dreatos
- Doodle from Pirate Dash
- OC commission from Amanda (you can just give it to me whenever)
Ended up with a lot more stuff than I thought I would get, but on to the more personal stuff.
Pirate Dash: Your driving, quite frankly, terrifies me, and I don’t really understand why you like golf so much, but you’re a good guy. We just need to get you an actual Dash plushie now.
Chocolatepony: Definitely want the other half of your tarot card deck, so I’ll pick that up for Bronycon. Wish you could have stayed around longer and played some more Cards Against Humanity with us, or gone to see the movie with us. Remind me to ask you for advice on Baltimore once Bronycon rolls around.
WillDrawForFood1: ur a fgt. Also set an alarm clock next time. Showing up at Wendy’s with everyone else in order to surprise you was one of the highlights of the con (seriously, the look on your face was priceless), and I didn’t know someone could eat an entire bucket of popcorn that quickly. You never cease to amaze, it would seem.
Rusty Nail: I really don’t know how or why you know so much about almost anything in existence, but I do appreciate your rather extensive knowledge of booze. Thanks for the beer and medical talks, and maybe we’ll bump into each other at another con some day.
Raikissu: You were a lot shorter than I was expecting. A lot. What you lack in size, though, you make up for in generosity and kindness. You’re such a sweetheart, and it’s almost sickening. Same goes for your sister. Really glad to have met you two.
Dream: DRAM. I’ll be honest, I didn’t really know what to expect from you (even after all those skype chats and calls), but it was still really great to meet you, and I’m looking forward to hanging out with you again at Bronycon. Also you’re a butt.
Amanda: It was really, really great to see you again after we first met up in September of last year, and when we were doing our little toasts yesterday before Chocolatepony left, it was nice to know that I was one of the people who helped turn your Trotcon experience into something positive (and even memorable). Remind me to never end up on an island with you, though – I need to work on my own counter-strategy for that.
And now, I am going to bed. I’m running on 5 hours of sleep, and driving Amanda back to the airport was a bit of a struggle (especially because she could sleep and I couldn’t, FFFFFF).
Talk to you guys in a few hours.
