Thoughts from the first 26 hours.

1 – Pittsburgh has some RIDICULOUS traffic.  For serious.  Also, thank goodness for GPS.

2 – Our hotel is nice enough, but the beds are HORRIBLE and the maids cannot read and comprehend notes when they’re paired with money.  We’re still short a wash cloth (and they stole the stack of towels I requested last night) and didn’t leave an extra comforter like we requested.

3 – The hotel restaurant is nice.  Their burgers are huge and they have an alright alcohol suggestion – at least, they had everything people asked for.  Their eggs are pretty good, too.

4 – OMG SO MANY BLOGGERS.  O. M. G.  I met entirely too many people to remember last night.  Finally met Breda after YEARS of talking with her online. Woo!


5 – The people AT the convention?  Very polite – they even say “excuse me” when shoving you out of the way!  My fellow nerds aren’t that polite.  C’mon guys, step up the politeness at places like Comic-Con.


6 – TRAFFIC HOLY DAMN.  How is Baltimore on the top list of worst traffic in the US?  How is Pittsburgh NOT on this list?


7 – Vendors are nice.  They’re especially nice when they see MEDIA on my badge…heh.


8 – The hotel did NOT plan the shuttle well.  Standing in the bus on the way back?  NOT ACCEPTABLE.


9 – Now nursing my feetses, as they are sore and I am tired.  Much longer day ahead tomorrow.
