So I registered for Bricks Cascade. Only instead of going for the full convention, I'm only going to make it on Saturday. All day Saturday, so any cool stuff going on I can be a part of... but nothing Friday or Sunday.
See, even though I've lived near Portland for years, I'm currently working in Dallas. So my plans are to fly to Portland Friday night, hang out on Saturday, and head back Sunday morning and be ready for work the following Monday.
I'm lucky in one aspect that I can fly non-rev (basically, I don't pay) which means I can fly as far as I want. The downside is... non-rev means I fill in any empty seats, and if none exist... well then I don't fly. Or if the flight gets canceled like it did to New York last weekend, there's not much I can do. (I know a lot of interns who's travel plans were messed up by that storm, so I wasn't the only one.) In short, there's a chance that I might not be able to make the flight to Portland. But so far it seems empty enough, so I'm holding out hope.
And I'll bring some of my MOCs! Sadly, nothing that hasn't already been seen at BrickCon or even Bricks Cascade last year. But if Cascade is anything like last year, there'll be plenty of room for some random MOCs that I can fill up... for a day anyway.
