She's totally suckered Barry and I into trying to go to Gencon next year. EVIL I say!!

I told B last night about my conversation with Mobo, so eventually I asked 'Have you heard of Gencon?' 'Oh yeah, I KNOW about Gencon'. His eyes glazed over and a little bit of drool came out, so I knew we were In Like Flint. So now I have another con to try and save up for. Here's the current list of money-suckers for 2008.

February - Katsucon in Washington DC (fly) 80% chance (depends on tax return) $1000 est
May - Animazement in Durham, NC (drive)** $600 est
May - AnimeNorth in Toronto, Canada (fly)** $1000 est
August - Gencon in Indianapolis, IN (fly) 30% chance (very close to Dragoncon) $1500 est
September - Dragoncon in Atlanta, GA (drive) 100% (it's D*C people! I gotta go!!) $1000 proven

**Right now, both cons are held the same weekend. While I've never been to AM I've heard really good things about it. It's also within driving distance, which is a money saver. However, I haven't been to AN in years and therefore haven't seen some friends in years. The only snag is that some drama went down last time (totally my bad) and I don't think I'd get a very warm welcome with the entire group. Honestly I don't give a crap, but the group is well-known enough that if someone had the desire they could totally f-up my con fun. Gotta love drama...

In all honesty, 4 cons a year really isn't that bad. Katsu is far enough away from everything that it *should* be easy to save for. Gencon and D*C are going to be the killers since they're both MASSIVE and pricey (Gencon more so since we'd have to fly). However, I've never been to a 100% gaming con and I'm very interested in it. Plus I'd get to pal around with Mobo while our sig-others spazz out in the game rooms. Totally awesome bonus. ^_^

I just ate lunch and I'm still hungry. Argh!
