    It's been a week since Botcon... And I'm now feeling the annual post-BC letdown...

    After months of build up and all the excitement, and than having a really great show that exceeded most expectation, I am so freakin' bored right now! I didn't even feel like flea marketing this weekend (partially because it's so hot out...)

    Anyone else feeling it?

    If it were not for the fact that I am moving to AZ next week, I would be in the same boat

    I know your pain. Work is less exciting, now that I have nothing to look forward to. The closest thing is maybe christmas.

    I have the post-BC blues pretty damn badly. I'm pretty much keeping myself going by looking forward to a certain young lady I met there hopefully visiting me later in the year.

    Very much so in many ways. Strangely enough the feeling is similar to before BC, now it just has something specific attached to it.

    Yep, I know that feeling too. Kind of like the one when you were a kid right after Christmas or a Birthday, neh? Coming back to your normal life after an event like that, and realizing that said good times are over and will never come again, is a bit of a shock to the system.

    I’m still riding high on the memories. I miss all the stuff I bought though, be nice if it shipped soon.

    We should have a TF convention every 6 months or less ;)

    Botcon makes me constipated. While I did have a helluva time, drowning some kids in the pool was a welcome relief.

    I don't miss the convention itself much, it's the people I miss :( 
    Works going to be a pain tomorrow.

    No. No letdown for me. It was nice to have but I have my limits when it comes to how much TF I can deal with in one dose.

    I agree with Lady Prime (aka Heather), judging by the pics of Botcon, it seems like an kick ass experience. I def. need to know where and when for Botcon '08 so I can be there. *starts to save up money

    I'm feeling it too.

    Thankfully we've got the movie to keep us occupied.

    The same goes for me.

    Too many incredible people, not nearly enough time to hang out with them all.

    My only fear is that Botcon '08 will be sometime in late August or September, and it will be next to impossible for me to get the time off then due to work.

    We don't know where or when, but it's a safe bet BotCon will return to the end of Sept. next year.

    Well if that's the case, I will not be able to go, unless it is in Minnesota.
