it is officially finals week for me.
my mom is taking me white water rafting sunday. yes mom, take me white water rafting, when a fucking hurricane is going to be over ga. o_O
dragoncon is this weekend. downtown is going to be choked with cosplayers and uber geeks. (guess who's staying the fuck away from downtown)
today was happy and stressfree. there was a zim-a-thon and pictionary. and kat was humped and chewed upon by a greyhound that was convinced it was part pogo stick.
But the DragonCon parade is so much fun. When else do you get to see a hundred storm troopers march down Peachtree? There is something special about seeing Darth Maul, Spider Man, and a girl in siranwrap sharing wings at Hooters.
Though I never actually go to DragonCon, it's fun to see all the costumes in normal everyday places. Who wouldn't find if funny to see "Bluntman" searching the Office Depot for flash memory? And what do you do when the rebel alliance and members of the empire both want to take MARTA? Are there seperate cars to keep them from fighting?
You know, before I started going to AIA I never thought about DragonCon and I've only been to it one day last year.
This week alone I've heard the words "Dragon con", "Fan fiction", "LARPing" and "Gaming" so much that I'm not all that disappointed that I'm not going.
Gotta love the nerds though.
