Road trips, Voice Actors, and Wake ups

I'm waiting for my clothes to finish drying. The only thing I hate about coming back from a con-having to go back to work the next day. We left out on Wednesday night around 11 and after some interesting stops made it to Sandusky Ohio around 10 a.m.  We called at 2 a.m. to see when we could check into the room (the person said around 4 p.m.) I didn't reserve the room, but I did do the talking when we got there. We got our room, and we got a huge discount! Saved myself a hundred dollars to ask about con discount with our room. Ashley ordered online our rooms and the web page was messed up to see the whole page so I just told them we didn't know if there was one or not. Ashley, Carol, (ash's mom) and myself were thinking about taking a nap-didn't happen at all until 2 something. We went exploring! That hotel ~waterpark resort is huge! The game room was awesome; played ddr, guitar hero and lots more. Passed out for two hours and got ready to go down to get our badges at 6 p.m. Talked to Wendy, Leah, Chris, and Michael when we got to meet them in the panel Thursday night. Everyone loved our accents-LOL! Chris said he enjoyed the south and missed hearing the accent. Wendy introduced Leah to me (her roomie and fellow va) Michael said he loved Samurai 7 as much as I do! He brings it out every year to rewatch. After we got done with dinner I passed out until it was time for con on Friday!

Friday was when we went to a wonderful place to eat breakfast-Perkins...alot better than IHOP! (I luv some cheesecake pancakes and instead I got crepes-huge crepes that still had to stay on the plate because it was too much.) Went back to the convention/hotel and went to panels and then the waterpark. Did the waterpark until it was time for dinner and then that is when Todd, Michael, Aaron, and Vic had the Ouran Host Club Panel. Todd and Vic arrived to the hotel just around 9p.m. Michele was there too! Vic and her are so adorable together!  They had time to throw their bags in their room and come down to their panel. Todd and Vic had to work on the Star Trek shoot that they are doing. That panel was awesome! At the end of it I took a picture with Tantum and Ashley. Talked to Todd, and found out a name of a song I wanted to know. Was going to get Vic's autograph that night, but the line was crazy and it was cut off! Wondered around and went to a Soul Eater panel.. NC was dissed. Ashley and me headed to the bar and got some drinks. We take our drinks back to the room and on our hallway Aaron walks past us. LOL! He gets stopped by his fangirls and goes into a room to make his appearance. That boy missed his own autograph signing. He was the only one I couldn't get. I wasn't waiting with those crazy girls! Friday went by too fast! They had a lot of stuff in the dealers room. I got some things this go round. I didn't dare go back on Saturday or Sunday.

Saturday we ate in the hotel...Ashley had some monthly problems and had to go to one of the stores in the hotel to find the right stuff for her. I got back and sitting in front of me is J. Micheal Tantum! LOL. I called my mom while I was waiting on Ashley to get back from the room and Caroll to grab more food from the breakfast bar. I told Ashley when she got back that he is in front of us-(he went to grab more too.) She didn't believe me until she saw him sit back down. XD. When Ashley went to get her food-Todd arrives. (Vic was in a panel at the time. I skipped it to eat.) Todd is behind Ashley when she gets her food...I thought it was funny that they both just missed each other to eat breakfast (Todd and Tantum). When we got done so did Korn. I went to the end of Vic's panel Michele was there talking to a cute kid. It was their time to get something to eat. Todd, Tantum, Aaron, and Chris had a BW panel. I luved the anime and wanted to hear what the English sounded like. Todd nickname the main character the Fish lip kid. Stood in line for autographs most of the day until 4 and got some lunch. Got back in line around not long after for the FMA/FMA Brotherhood pannel. Everyone was there..except Leah. Vee couldn't attend the con due to schedules with recording and booking another flight. That panel was awesome! Did some other con panels and lines then got dinner. Went back to the room-went to work out in the Fitness Room. Got back after 10 and got a shower and watched the end of Juno. Then this is when the night turned crazy. Started watching Punk'd and a Tornado Warning pops up. I have no idea what county we are really in at the moment or what is close by us. I txt jessie and tell her about it. I turn it to FMA Brotherhood at midnight (everyone falls asleep.) I wake up around 1 and turn the tv off.

Sunday morning...pounding and yelling at our door wakes me up. Tornado is being screamed and more pounding follows. I open the door and see everyone trying to get people out of their rooms. I finally get Ashley and her mom out. I grab my glasses and my phone. I txt mom while I'm in the hallway. I'm separated from Ashley and Caroll. The guy I'm beside is on his laptop following where the tornado is. It's near Toledo.  I finally find Ashley and her mom when we are going down steps to the basement. They told us we were going to the arcade...didn't even see it. Everyone is crammed. It's hot and humid. No water or bathrooms near us and people are packed ontop one another. This all happened at 3:30 in the morning. All I know is that a Tornado is coming and I don't like this basement. There is the big cheer and they said that it just died out before it got closer.  It is now almost 5 a.m. I don't get sleep until I get home from Ohio on Monday morning.  Thank God that we survived! My heart goes out to those who lost their homes and their lives. 

It took about two hours to get finished packing and loading the car. I spend a little time in the Otaku flee market and head over to Vic's Trek panel. This guy stayed in his room to watch for the Tornado. I guess living in Texas you get used to Tornados. The last panel is right after his-Tantum and Haberkorn has Guest on Guest...it was date questions and answers. It was very entertaining. I found out Micheal, Wendy, Leah, Aaron, and his mom were the only ones that made it down to the basement. Wendy blew up Todd's phone about not being in the basement. Todd slept through it. LOL> I sure did when I was a baby, but when you have screaming and pounding on your door at 3:30 in the morning...I'm going to be awake and alert.

Had a nice long road trip back to NC! Luved the view and had a wonderful time at Colossalcon!

Till the next convention...
