Are you missing the Con?

Recommended Posts

I can't believe it's only a day gone and I'm already missing the Con... I was walking down the High Street when I saw a long queue standing outside a shop, So I just joined the Queue. I was just nodding to the people in front and behind me.. Smiling. A lady behind me was doing the Crossword, So I snatched the Pen from her and signed her paper.. she was not impressed. We then moved in to the shop as it just opened... We shuffled in. It was a Victoria Secret shop :eek: Well I walked up to the attractive Sales lady, I placed my hoof around her and took out my Camel Mobile Phone.. I said, "Smile" and took the photo... I had to rush to get to the next shop.. Honest it was nothing to do with them saying they were calling the Police.... True Story Comic Con Blues ;)

I've got the boiler and radiators on full, and got really tiny pictures of the guests on my screen, just to replicate the feeling of being in the Autograph hall.

But in all seriousness, its a testament to the show that I already miss it and can't wait until next year already! 

When are we getting some of next year's guests announced? It's only 364 days to go!

Every time I went through earls court on the train today my instinct was always “I need to get off here and change for Olympia”:(

Already can’t wait for next year

Yep. Got home about an hour ago and just showed my family my loot. Now I'm not sure what to do. Back to work tomorrow *sigh*

Started feeling the post-con blues when I had about 25 miles left to get home, realising that the weekend that took many months of planning and saving have come and gone but left behind many memories that I’ll cherish for a long time.

Lol no. If anything I'm relieved it's over.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those people who suffers social anxiety or gets nervous in crowds or anything like that, and that missing an autograph isn't going to ruin my day/life.

I just got a sense of 'job done' as I was leaving (got all my autographs and single photo done with maximum efficiency) and went home happy. I'm looking forward to the next one, but I'm also not at all sad that this one is over.

The weekend is amazing, I love every minute and am so grateful for all the experiences I've managed to have, but the day after it's all done I'm ready for normality again and wanna be back home again with my hubby and kids <3

Yeah I’ve sort of got post con blues, started back at work again today, not had a lot of sleep so I’m shattered and aching but it was all worth it!

Tbh I'm having issues getting over the guests I have met, I have been a huge fan of all of them for several years now and the characters in which they play have grown on me for so long, its still all surreal to me haha. So simply put yes lol

I probably couldn't of asked for a better guest lineup and I'm so glad that only one of them cancelled and I'm so glad it all went really well, great weekend! I really need to find a Tardis and do it all over again haha

I'm missing Costas. D: It's now been over 24 hours since he cuddled me close and told me to be a good girl.

My train from Clapham Junction to MK stopped at Kensington Olympia today and I gazed forlornly out of the window like a child being shipped off to escape the war.

That's exactly what he said to me too.

Totally feeling the post-con blues. Just looking at the photos and autos and I'm constantly asking "Did this really happen?" It all felt like a dream, especially my encounters with P Capaldi and M Smith.

I miss being there so much! Yesterday; I was looking through my autographs and pictures, and wishing I was back there...

I left home at 3.30am on Friday morning to drive from Scotland to London. Parked the car at the hotel then Uber to the con getting in at 12.30, got back to the hotel at 8pm. The next 2 days were up at 6am full con day back to the hotel with pretty much eat then bed every night. All this done with me on wheelchair pushing duties for the Mrs too. Left the con at 5.30pm on Sunday, Uber to the car and drove home, falling into bed at about 2.30am. Since getting up sometime on Monday I’ve been loving my sofa which I do not intend to spend a lot of time away from for the next few days.

a long way of saying no, I’m not actually missing it ;)

No, I said that. And we agreed to never talk about what happened that night as well...

Do I miss getting up at a horrendously early hour each day, mainlining painkillers so I can keep going, getting horribly hot and sweaty at times, and worrying whether I'll get everything I want done?  Well, no.  I'm glad something of this scale happens to me just once a year!  But the memories of my encounters there are absolutely priceless.  I'm fondly remembering hanging out with friends and striking up random connections in the many and varied queues.  And of course looking at my photos and autos and grinning like an idiot. ;)
