Real friends hang out with you while you're making stuff at home. Or at least don't complain if you bring stuff to work on at hang-outs elsewhere. They are the crappy friends, not you! :)

I'll have to make sure to bring hand sanitizer and drink lots of water. I've never gotten the crud, but this is also my first time in the Artists Alley for realz.

I had to work all of memorial day weekend on top of crafting like a madwoman, and I can already feel my immune system dropping. Remember to take your vitamins, everyone! I had a manager once who swore by that airborne (? The immune system enhancer) stuff during times like these.

That stuff is the nastiest swill on the face of the earth. I took it once in college when I was going to be flying home during flu season, and it made me wretch with one sip. I've heard since then that it doesn't work anyway. >_>

From my own experience, Purell really is the way to go. We've also found that while off brands put a NASTY taste on your fingers when you eat stuff, Purell doesn't. Our household buys the liquid spray "pens" of it ~45 at a time in a display box off of amazon so they cost about $1.50 each, and we seriously go through five pens at A-kon. We literally spray every time we do ANYTHING because money. Is. Filthy. I think the constant handling of money is what gives us artists con crud more than anything. :\

Ugh, I also need to get a stylus for my phone. I don't want people using their nasty fingers to sign on my phone.

This is going to be my first con using the phone swiper (ProPay JAK), so I hope that works okay. I'll definitely need a phone charger to make sure I have enough juice to keep my phone going... and I hope I have enough reception to use it. That's been a problem for me sometimes at the Sheraton in the past.

Hand Sanitizer? Really? Starry I need to buy some more stuff from you.
...Ugh, I keep forgetting to buy, I think it's chapstick, from you. I can seriously never have enough chapstick, I'm addicted to it. Or lip balm. Whatever.

Guys, I think I'm actually ready. I finished printing signs, that's right, signs and prices, and now I'm just stocking some extra 4x6 prints because why not.
What a relief!

Now I can start planning what kinds of cosmetics to buy from Starry... Do you have anything with lion/greek/griffin themes?

Ohhh, we hit the road tomorrow. I'll just set an alarm and crawl into bed...

...and twenty hours later, I'll finally be able to sleep - right when it's inconvenient. XD;

I've been looking for the past 3 hours for my Tax ID... It's not where I put it after sign ups and I'm afraid it's just plain and simply gone.
Do I have to have a copy with me at check in, or would I be able to just pull up the thing on the comptroller website?

EDIT: Nevermind, I found it. But maybe someone else needs an answer in case they lost theirs so?
