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.
Yes, that is an official Toy Fair pass to the Lego 2013 set previews. I was officially signed up to attend as part of the press, and Andrew and I were going to photograph the ball joints off those new Hero Factory characters!
AND THEN GUESS WHAT!
Mother Nature hates me. The big storm already has my flight canceled. And since I'm flying for free as an intern, they have no real interest to book me on a new flight and get me there on time, when there are so many paying customers who are a bigger priority. So all those plans were for naught.
Oh well, maybe next year. Maybe. I might not have free flights then either tho. But BZP shouldn't really care... sounds like Sixboss is still going to brave the storm and bring us excelent coverage, like he does every year. Have fun, Andrew!
But I'm going to be all sad now. Again. But now I'm thinking of taking the effort and going to BricksCascade, if just for a single day. You guys can cram all that awesomeness into one day, right??
(Okay maybe not the most tasteful blog entry ever but seriously...)
Also, I was gonna complain that Rene started texting me at 1 AM but he was ignoring the time difference and I was trying to sleep... but really it's a good assumption that I'd be awake at 1 AM so I can't really find fault with him. Oh well.
