Exactly what it says on the tin. Left Cincinnati at about 10:30, got in about 6:30. Mapquest said it was an 8 1/2 hour drive I did it in about 7, or thereabouts.
ok, not exactly. I would have been in sooner but I got wrapped up in Baltimore/Washington DC rush hour traffic, which easily destroyed my awesome pace and caused me to lose at least half an hour. Meh, that was to be expected now that I'm thinking about it. Either way, I'm just glad I got in at a decent hour.
The drive was uneventful, but I really think I overstayed my welcome
no, that's not the right way to put it. I think I overstayed my tolerance. My intention was to leave on Tuesday, but my Mom and Stepdad talked me into staying another day. That didn't end well
it wasn't absolutely horrible or anything, just the realization that I had spoken too soon on the 'drama-free visit'. Oh well
yeah, I'm back at home and I'm going to be putting my artistic nose (if not my entire face) to the grindstone. I want to work on that contest entry for
, knock that TMNT commission out
even though I *still* can't find the owner's contact info, I would rather have it on hand in case we run into each other at a future convention.
Speaking of conventions, because it doesn't look like I will be gainfully employed the first weekend of January, I will be attending MAGFEST
for the entire duration. Granted, I won't have table space or anything, but I will be walking about here and there generally checking the place out. If, by some odd chance, I manage to be able to *get* table space (I will at least ask, but I am expecting nothing!) I will be wherever the artists hang out.
Anyway, I hope you all had a great Christmas and that the new year rocks on toast for you too.
