    I forgot that. I lost my voice, too, mostly, which sort of sucks when you work as a salesman.

    no offense, but I'm honestly puzzled by this
    you were in downtown Seattle where you can find a wide range of cuisine within two or three blocks
    so why the crap food?

    I stayed home from work today because I had a bad enough sore throat that I thought it might be strep. It went away later, though.

    I was stuck sitting right in front of a recirculated air duct outflow, behind the Prize Redemption booth. My throat wasn't too happy with that, but I'm thinking it should be fine in a couple of days.

    First con I've been to without the "Con-Crud" hitting me. I am suffereing from a lack of "FUCK-YEAH!" and a severe "depletion-of-funds" but all the cool stuff I brought home (SHIT-TONS of CCG/TCG games!) makes me feel better.

    Sore throat. I thought it was fatigue from being up more than 24 hours and smoking too many cigarettes but then I started getting headaches and post-nasal drip. I wished I'd brought a jacket with me the first two days because I kept getting really cold, but that probably wouldn't have helped the illness.

    Severe fatigue.
    Sore everything.
    I'll probably be hung over for days.
    I'll probably be in pain for days after cleaning my apartment from two separate after-parties in consecutive nights.
    Mild sore throat, fucked up sinuses.
    BUT, I didn't lose my voice like I did last year having to yell at the goddamn concert line both nights without a megaphone like last year.

    Being fueled by pure alcohol burned off anything less hardy than the ebola virus.

    Nor do I get hungover. On the downside I had trouble sleeping, and hadn't brought any sedatives.

    On the other hand, I had a lovely girl that was happy to see me, and gave me a great welcome back home.

    I got lucky. Sadly, not like that.

    I stirred up a bunch of dust packing and had congestion most of the weekend. Luckily, that seemed to make me impervious to airborne bugs. The worst ailment I got over the weekend was a wicked case of "Disney World Feet" on Saturday. You know, that strain in the tendons in the arches of your feet from walking way too much. That was thanks to the wicked awesome concert.

    Other than that, it was just general back and shoulder ache from filling up a backpack with swag and drinks.

    Even though I turned 21 on Sunday, I stayed dry for my own sake.

    I believe spokanistan is the current nomenclature.

    There was a reason for this.
