Con recovery update

‏@cleolinda: I fought it off for several days, but I seem to have succumbed to a belated concrud: sinus infection. Woe.

@foresthouse: Maaaan, I thought we were creeping under the Con Crud wire this year.

@cleolinda: It's POSSIBLE this is due to all the home repair kicking up dust and aggravating my allergies.


Yeah... about that.

So I have finally been felled by crud; jury’s out as to whether it came from Dragon Con or not. While I am totally doofy on cold medicine, I’m still doing a lot better than I was this time last year (I had the flu. FOR SIX WEEKS), so I’m getting a writeup done based around a couple of Storify posts (tweets, pictures, etc.) I threw together when I came home:

General adventures (still working on)

Hannibal-related, i.e., Scott and Aaron, but also including pictures/reports that came in simultaneously from Mads’ appearances at Fan Expo in--was it Toronto? mysticowl ended up at his Q&A by chance and reported from it via Twitter.

Meanwhile, foresthouse and I will be recording a podcast tomorrow discussing our adventures; if my congestion clears up, I may be able to properly recount the Q&As.

Also, newly uploaded: first half of the 2nd Q&A; the stormtrooper invasion will be in the second half. A TON of great stuff is in this first half, though. "He knows what he's doing." "He LOVES it when vegetables fantasize about him."

I keep hoping to skip the crud, but put my anemia/immune impaired self in an enclosed space with 70,000 other people, and, yea, I probably should stop hoping. Started hitting Monday night. By Wednesday, there was no doubt: the crud had hit.

Ug.

Last year I watched myself come down with it in slo-mo that Monday, and I was definitely sick on the train home Tuesday. This year, I had a scratchy throat off and on half the time, but that was probably due to dehydration, allergens, and lots of talking? Then I come home to all this home repair and dust everywhere, so I'm genuinely not sure if I escaped the crud itself and just succumbed to a sinus infection due to my really bad dust allergies and general tiredness.

Going to Geek Girl Con this year?

I'm afraid my resources are pretty exhausted--really, the only reason I've been able to go to Dragon Con is that it's just one state over.

Understandable. If I win the lottery tonight, I promise I would foot the costs for you!

You'd better not be sick for six weeks this year, or I'm going to... Yell at you? Something.

Get well!

(I kinda hope The Window Guy won't come back - he creeps me out. Can they send someone else to you instead?)

He's coming back tomorrow, but while my stepfather is home to deal with him. I was kind of surprised by the solidarity of NOPE everyone reacted with.

Meanwhile, foresthouse and I will be recording a podcast tomorrow discussing our adventures; if my congestion clears up, I may be able to properly recount the Q&As.

WOULD THIS BE EPISODE 78 OF A THING PERHAPS

To Storify a Killer - Cleo, if I get fired for reading this at work (and laughing somewhat hysterically), I blame you :P
