And this would be why I only made it to 3 panels all convention. Lots of naps happened.
Now, those who were around the blog last Fall might remember that I had my gallbladder out the week before Dragon*Con and that the trip only happened because Todd was willing to do all of the driving and heavy lifting (literally... I wasn't supposed to carry anything heavier than my purse!). I was off the pain killers (talk about mind-numbing, they didn't knock me out so much as put me on 'pause') and had dome some last-minute shopping pre-surgery for loose clothing but I had 0 stamina.
Of course, the fact that it was August in the South didn't help. I had a list of panels that I would have liked to go to but, frequently, the Art track was hosted in the Hyatt, we were in the Hilton, and I just didn't feel up to the trek. I'm looking forward to having a bit more energy for my next trip to D*C!

The two times I’ve had surgery, I’ve thought, “Wow, so much time at home! I will be a reading fiend!” Forgetting, of course, that those pain killers make reading impossible.
Precisely! I thought I was going to have time to work on a website and do all this drawing… Nope! I’d take the Percoset, sit down on the couch waiting for it to kick in and then 2 or 3 hours later I’d realize I was still there and all I’d managed to do was stare, slack-jawed, at the television.
The switch from panel 2 to 3 was hilarious. That’s happened to me a time or two.
Love the latest megacon report too by the way. Thanks for keeping it real. XD
