Philcon Day 0

Rainy day. Started the day by dropping off two more bags of toys into the Toys For Tots barrel at the bank. Then I tackled a bunch of geocaches in Bucks County on my way to Philcon. Because of the weather, I chose only caches that were short walks and single-stage so I wouldn't have to be out in the rain for too long.

Stik's Nature Walk would have been a longer walk but I used the back way in. As I was getting back to my car, the cache owner happened to drive by, and he slowed down and called out "Find my cache?" Too bad he couldn't stop because there was traffic.

Got to the hotel. Check-in took quite a bit longer because they couldn't get the printer working to print the receipt. Picked up my badge and conbook at the registration table upstairs. Funny that there was only a line for names A-K. Was no one named L-Z?

Had dinner in Chinatown, which was a mere 2 blocks away. (Of course, Chinatown in Philly seems to itself be only a few blocks in size!) That's the nice thing about the Convention Center area. Also needed to get a new change purse (It's not a purse. It's European!) because the zipper broke while I was trying to put in $10 worth of quarters at the Molly Pitcher Rest Stop. Go figure. Didn't see anything suitable at the dollar store in Chinatown but they had a small camera case for a dollar so that will have to do as a change purse for now.

Came back to the hotel, showered, and then went to the evening panels downstairs. My shoes were a mess from the rain and mud, so I just padded around in the paw slippers. Those are much more comfortable anyway, as long as I'm not going outside. Took a brief look at a bunch of panels but settled on the anime track for the evening to watch the anime clips they were playing. Always good to learn about more series that I don't have time to watch. :)
