  1. This episode both intensified my desire to go to a convention and also terrified me about going to a convention because it sounds so *exhausting*.

  2. This makes me want to just say “screw it,” and go to one. The fact that I live about an hour from LA/Anaheim as well as San Diego (and 4 from Vegas, on a week day) makes it so I don’t even really have an excuse NOT to go to one. The only real factor is saving money…not just for tickets, but for buying all the things I’m sure I’ll want.
