The BotCon Report: Day One

Panels: N/A

Dealer Room Purchases: N/A


Can You Believe It?!:

I ran into the God of Mischief! There is a story to be told!

We got up fairly early this morning and we were out the door and on the road by 10:15. We didn’t use the GPS this time; Prime had sent us a Google map via text and we used that instead.

It worked. It worked so much better than the GPS. I mean, with this, we were able to avoid any problems before they became problems. We were even able to go faster than ten miles an hour! Yeah, we were actually cruising and getting somewhere! It was so much nicer than the previous day. The only major problem was the amount of people who had no clue how to operate a motor vehicle. But that seems to be a problem everywhere.

We did have to stop for fuel a couple of times and our first stop was at a Love’s. Places like these usually have kitschy little knick knacks and souvenirs; this one was no exception. They had some TY Beanie Boos, Squishmallows, little plush animals wearing “I ❤ Indiana” shirts, that sort of thing. I spotted a unicorn Squishmallow that was pretty cute and thought I would take it home until I had the feeling that I was being watched.

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw him.

There was a sidekick that featured some Marvel plushes: Groot, Iron Man, Thor, Black Panther. But one was looking right at me: a Kuricha Loki plush. The only Loki, I might add.

As you can see, he joined me on the trip. Hey, he said he needed a ride to Asgard to have a few words with his father and brother so I decided to help him out. 🙂

The rest of the trip went fairly well. We got to the hotel, checked in, dropped off our luggage and I texted a friend of mine that I had arrived.

DA is here. Saw him, hugged him, talked to him. Life is fucking awesome again.

I have my VIP package and tomorrow I will get Frank Welker’s autograph. I’ll be on the hunt for a few toys for Prime in the dealer room. It all gets underway tomorrow.

It’s been a long six years. It’s good to be back.


About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
