Dilemma:

I'm bidding for my vacation days for next year. I intended to use one week for ComicCon and one week for DragonCon. The problem is that DragonCon and ComicCon don't fall exactly into the vacation weeks, there's about one day of con that's not covered.

So do I bid for a week to cover each con even though it's not completely covered and try and finagle a solution closer to the date, or do I take 2 consecutive weeks off and completely cover one con and bid for days off for the other one.

Flight attendant days off is a bizarre system where every month they release lines that consist of trips and days off, you pick the line that fits you best and they will assign it to you based on seniority. It basically means that I don't know what my schedule will be next month or the months after that until about a week before the month actually begins.

So this is my conundrum. And if I do bid for 2 weeks solid I'd have to do it for DragonCon as it takes place in September and the lines are usually harder to work around the closer you get to winter. (Winter is the slow period so there aren't as many lines which means you're less likely to get the days off you want)

I can't decide: split the vacation or keep it together. ARGH

DragonCon

Well, it's official. Come September I am going to DragonCon. I shall miss all of my WinCon friends desperately as I will not be attending this year but it came down to going to DragonCon or WinCon but not both and well.. DragonCon is huge and crazy and full of celebs. And I've never been!

I just purchased the DragonCon Pass and I went ahead and booked my airfare as I had enough miles to get a round trip ticket to Atlanta for $5 on Delta (Lookie! My job is good for something!).

And to think... this all takes place in September *g*

Yay! So excited!
Meh. I keep seeing Wincon reports popping up and I don't want it to be over!

I will not be writing up a report, I did my reporting purely in pictures. Pictures I am not able to load as I am at the Holiday Inn in Bangor Maine (a city I willfully mispronounce as its more fun to say Bangher. Yes, I am easily amused)and the internet connection sucks. My pictures are so fun and pretty too. I'm heading to the Holiday Inn in Wisconsin tomorrow so I'll retry there and if that doesn't work I'll retry again in Germany. AND if that doesn't work I will most definitely have them up when I get back to New York on the 27th.

For all the German-lovers on my flist: Lederhosen. HOW AWESOME WAS THAT!?

Oh yes, all systems are go for the Halloween Photo Project. The days off have been acquired, I even purchased a book on the particular subject we'll be visiting and I'm all set for some fantastic pictures! I can't wait!
I am home!!

Winchestercon was all kinds of amazing and I am all full of woe that it is over. So many great times and great people and great photos (I'm looking at you and your wincest chest [livejournal.com profile] stephanometra!). There will be a con report once I'm past the whole con pretty! people fun! stage of exhaustion.

Sadly, I only have 4 more hours before I have to leave the comfort of my apartment so I can go back to the airport I just came from so I can fly to North Carolina and fall into an exhausted heap in my hotel room. I think I need a few moments to go stare longingly at my own bed...

But on the upside of things there will be pretty boys in uniform. So you know... silver linings.
