One day more
Another day, another destiny
This never-ending road to Calvary
These men who seem to know my crime
Will surely come a second time
One day more...

Finally, after ten months of planning and waiting... I fly out to TFCon Chicago tomorrow!  :D  I have a layover in Las Vegas in the afternoon -- one of these days I'll go to Vegas and actually leave the airport :XD: -- and an excruciatingly long shuttle ride from the airport to my hotel -- Southwest, my preferred airline, doesn't fly into the airport closest to the hotel -- but I'm hoping those both go smoothly and without hiccups.  Then again, the biggest mishaps I've ever had on a flight are a couple of delayed flights and a seat-kicking child, so hopefully this flight keeps my streak of decent plane trips going. 

My brother will be driving me out to the airport, and that trip'll probably consist of him kicking me and my bags out at the curb and driving away.  :giggle:  If it were my mom driving me, she'd probably insist on parking and seeing me off at airport security, but my brother isn't quite as sentimental. 

One more day before the storm
At the barricades of freedom
As the ranks begin to form
Will you take your place with me?

And of course, it's the day before the trip and I haven't even packed yet.  ^^;  I have a stack of clothes and other items set aside to be packed, but nothing actually in my suitcase except my toiletries (but then, that stuff always stays in my suitcase except when I need to restock it).  Guess what I'm doing tonight.  :XD:  Though some things won't be packed until the last minute, like my cell phone charger and my laptop. 

That and I have to sit down and decide which of my "nerd shirts" I'm going to be packing for the trip -- I have way too many.  The BotCon shirts are probably out of the question, since I'm pretty sure BotCon and TFCon see each other as competition, but that still leaves a plethora of other shirts to take.  The only ones I know I'm taking for sure are my custom-airbrushed Autobot and Decepticon shirts.  Beyond that... I guess I just pick a handful at random.  :XD:

The Sky-Byte kimono is coming along for sure... and instead of bringing home a box set this year, I'm going to be bringing home a mask.  :D  I just hope I can fit it in my luggage and/or my carry-on bag.  Otherwise, I may be having to ship this thing home...

Watch 'em run amok
Catch 'em as they fall
Never know your luck
When there's a free-for-all
Here a little dip
There a little touch
Most of 'em are goners
So they won't miss much

I've never been to Chicago or a TFCon before, so I have very little idea of what to expect.  This'll be a grand adventure for sure, since even when BotCons have taken place in unfamiliar cities I've had some idea on what to expect from the event itself.  My consolation this year is that I'll be meeting a very good friend in Chicago, and she knows the area.  Even if TFCon bombs, if she and I have had a good time in the Windy City, I'll consider this trip a success.  :)

Then again, I'm going to be attending a convention with hundreds of other people who share my interest, so I can't see how THAT can be a bomb of a convention.  That's one of the most important aspects of a con, I feel -- getting to hang out with people who love what you love, making new friends, and reinforcing bonds with old ones.  All the other stuff -- special guests, activities, dealer room, etc. -- is just icing on the cake.

Wish me luck, folks.  I might pay for Internet in the hotel room one or two nights, but otherwise y'all probably won't hear from me until Monday or Tuesday.  Hopefully updates on Blue Moon and Black Night will resume then...

Until all are one!  :salute:

Tomorrow we'll be far away
Tomorrow is the judgment day
Tomorrow we'll discover what our God in Heaven has in store!
One more dawn!
One more day!
One day more!

*Song lyrics shamelessly swiped from "One Day More" from Les Miserables

I know, I said you'd get one more art feature before TFCon.  I changed my mind -- y'all get Optimus and Eeyore for another week.  ;)

Random question: How does one hypothetically show that a character is at the mercy of an omnipotent being, say one trapped in a Clingy piece of Loyal Phlebotinum that forces the holder to move between locations on a semi-regular basis?
