Countdown To The World Fantasy Convention in Toronto
March 7, 2012 8 Comments
Yes, as of this week I am starting to prepare. I know it’s still six months away, but that will pass quickly and the next thing I know it’s two weeks away and I’m nowhere near as ready as I’d like to be. What do I need to prepare for? Well, off the top of my head;
Business cards: Yes, I want to have a pile of business cards to hand out. I’m not sure what goes on at these conferences, but at the metaphysical conference I attended last year, I had several people ask me for them.
Babysitter: Still not sure if Sithboy is going with us. It’ll be in the first couple months of his first year of highshool and I have no idea what his study habits will be like. We have two options here, my mother or husband’s mother. He seems more comfortable around Husbands mother, but my mother lives closer to his school.
Animals: We’ll be gone for our days so I’ll need to make sure the CatPack are taken care of. We have those food and water dispensers, so I’m not worried there. I might buy two more just because they can be little piggies. Also going to need at least two more litter boxes. We have one and a half now, the half being one of those cheap plastic things. I’m pretty good at keeping up with it too. I don’t walk past it without scoping something out.
Clothing: I know, trivial, right, but to me it isn’t. I have two outfits I plan on wearing, but I still want two more. Then, of course, there’s foot wear, and comfy clothing…
Appearance: Okay, yes, I’ll admit it, I dye my hair. Husband has offered to do it for me, but I’ve declined. There are just some things a girl has to have done professionally.
For those of you who have been to conferences, am I forgetting anything? Hotel is booked and membership paid. Don’t need a passport as I live in the same country.
Anything else I need to put on my list?
