Since Comic-Con is insane, I’ll be breaking my week down into a few posts! Enjoy!
One of the best parts of San Diego was being able to hang out with my fellow GISHWHES team members. We’re spread out all over the world which means we don’t often get the chance to just hang out and have fun. In San Diego, we were only missing three members of the team out of 15! That’s pretty epic!
The party started Tuesday when we invited people over to the condo for dinner and to hang out. This is another “pro” of having a condo. You have more room to entertain during vacation! Jo and her boyfriend Larry were the first to arrive. They came from Australia and are traveling the U.S. for a number of weeks. Then during the night more friends popped in! Jamie brought her friend Rachel who’s a doll, Katy (from the UK) stopped by even though she was suffering from serious jetlag, and Ryn managed to swing by as well. It really was a pretty awesome night! Deidre cooked up some pasta, we all chatted, and then started a round of Cards Against Humanity. Honestly, it was an oddly boring and unoffensive game but we still had a great time!
Even though Comic-Con is an insane time, we made sure to make time to see each other during the week. We had a “formal” dinner at The Cheesecake Factory which Anne was able to attend, had numerous lunches together, and had one last “Goodbye” meal on Sunday night before everyone headed back to the real world. Including our newest member, Angella!
I’m really glad to have these lovely ladies in my life. Even though we’re miles apart from each other, it’s amazing to know that when we do get together, it just feels right. It’s like we’ve been friends for years! I think that’s a truly rare thing and I’m glad to have something like it in my life. I’m a little bummed our lone guy member, Travis wasn’t able to meet up with the entire team but that’s the way of the Con!
Believe it or not, GISHWHES starts this weekend! I’m glad we had the chance to “relax” before the craziness that’s bound to happen when it starts up!
