Adventures In Con Land!  
Friends, Romans, Fl*sters, I thought I’d drop by and say hello! Now I’m pretty sure that you’re aware that I’ve been to the Creation Con in Birmingham this weekend, I was only there for the Saturday but I had an absolutely brilliant time. First of all, I got to meet up with the girls including dizzojay, amberdreams and chellexxx and it was wonderful to catch up with them again.

I must admit it was strange to have so many gaps between the panels, but then again, we’re use to the insanity that was Asylum, perhaps I just can’t cope with a well-organized Con! I spent the day with Chelle and we saw some amazing panels together. Everyone was on fire, Brianna was amazing as was Rich, Matt and Rob and Misha, Jared and Jensen were totally amazing.

While we waiting for the panels or photo ops, I drove poor chellexxx barmy *G* It seems we share a love of the West Wing, NCIS LA and a certain Marty Deekes, and The Librarians.  And during our chat it seems the poor woman may just have signed herself up as an enabler for my fics! She has offered her services as a sounding board and person to say “ok it’s not bad, but where the bloody hell do you think you’re going with it?” She may come to regret this offer as now I’m trawling through my WIPS and seeing which I should bombard her with. Please send your thoughts, prayers, large boxes of chocolates to chellexxx she’s gonna need em.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a con if I didn’t get at least one photo op! This time I managed two. The first was with Mr Jensen I’m so god damn sexy I should come with a health warning Ackles and the other was with Chuck himself! I was really happy to get my picture with Rob as I was still kicking myself over missing out when he was at asylum 10.

So, without further ado here are my photo ops!
Jensen Cr Con

I was so proud of myself here, I walked up to Jensen and asked for a hug off Dean! That probably explains the smug expression *G*

Rob B Cr Con

As for Rob I just asked for a hug and you know what, Mr Benedict is kinda sexy!

The SNS later that day was amazing, and it’s official I’ve become a Louden Swain fan, I brought myself two if their albums, Eskimo and No Time Like the Present and they are brilliant. Jensen’s two songs were enough to blow the ovaries and make the brain dribble out of the ears.

Then Richard sang Copper Head Road and he nailed it!

After a truly amazing concert the poor long suffering Chelle dropped me off at my hotel and we said goodnight. Have I mentioned how awesome Chelle was? Not only did she pick me up at the train station in the morning, but she put up with all day and then took me back to my hotel tell you the woman is a saint *G*

After I left Chelle I had a little bit of a drama, I went inside and tried to check in. Everything was going fine until I tried to use my Credit Card, the bloody thing was declined three times! I was standing there having a slight panic attack as I’d left my Debit Card at home. As luck would have it I’d brought cash with me in case I had a rush of blood to the head and brought more photo ops and Supernatural goodies. I’ve never been so bloody pleased that I behaved, and I had enough to pay for the room and breakfast. I rang my bank the next day and I found out I hadn’t forgotten my bloody pin number, there was a technical fault with my Card! I nearly had bloody heart failure, in future I’ll bring both my cards.

Apart from that slight hiccup I had a wonderful time and I can’t wait to do it all over again at Crossroads.

The whole day was great, and it was so lovely to catch up with the girls. I must admit I'm really pleased with how the photos turned out, especially the one with Jensen. that whole credit card thing was a nightmare, but it worked out alright in the end.

I'm glad you had fun and I'm glad you had the cash on you to pay for the room. And your photos are lovely! You're so photogenic!

It was a great day I'm so glad I got to experience a Creation Con. Thank you for saying that! I never like myself in photos (or the mirror if it comes to that *G*)I've never been so happy to have cash on me.

Great post, sweetie, and I'm happy you had so much fun! As for the hotel incident - I probably would have turned crimson red and hoped for the ground to swallow me (happened to me once on a grocery run and I stil feel the embaressment).

Anyway, just a little thing that I noticed on your absolutely gorgeous pic with Jensen - the two of you are (almost) plaid twins! XD And I seriously love Rob's PhotoOps, his smiles are always so radiant!

PS: Yes, Jensen should come with a health warning - almost got a heart stutter when I saw him in this wonderful coffee-colored leather jacket over at June's. HOLY MOLY!!!

Oh, then I saw you, too! Great pictures, and it was an awesome convention, even if you were only there for a day.

Looks to me like the most awesome time was had, I remember spending my time with Chelle in Brum and what a wonderful experience she made it. I'm so pleased you had such a fabulous experience, and both your ops are LOVELY! And thank heavens the card snafu got sorted out ♥
