First of all, I've got a guest strip over at Sam and Fuzzy! So after the incredible ordeal regarding my booth was resolved, sort of, I finally got to go in and set up my table early Friday! And, uh, hey, look where my booth is located. The artist alley tables were situated around the perimeter of the movie vehicle area (where Optimus, Ironhide, Sideswipe, and Ratchet also resided), but mine was one of two that were basically on top of the vehicles themselves, rather than being on the other side of the wall from them. I was literally humping Bumblebee's ass all weekend, through no fault of my own. I felt a little weird having brought two banners, since they'd block the view to Bee, and compromised at just one. Well, for a moment. Shortly thereafter, I decided to put my Shortpacked! and Dumbing of Age banners back-to-back, so that I was using both of them, but not using up any more real estate. So, uh, the first thing people saw on their way into the convention hall every morning was a big sprawl of vehicles and a Dumbing of Age banner. Apparently BotCon really really really loves me. I am going to be in so many photographs.
