ACW Episode 63 – De-evolution of a Fan

I am soooooooooooooooo tired.

I’m not exactly sure how this week’s cartoon got done. I do them a day in advance, so I’m writing this on Monday, the day after getting back from Ravencon. I spent the previous three days whooping it up and having a grand old time, drinking too much soda, getting too little sleep, chatting until 2AM with friends I only see a few times a year… I’m wiped out.

Anyway, Ravencon is a great convention. I usually go just as a fan and spend the entire weekend volunteering (which is also fun but exhausting). I’ve noticed that at the age of 41, recovering from conventions seems a little harder. Maybe that’s just my imagination though. Maybe staying up all night 2 or 3 nights in a row has always been this debilitating to me. I don’t know. It’s not something I do very often, and that’s probably a good thing.

Anyway, I had a great time, and I even got to participate in this year’s Live Mr. Adventure Show! It’s a pulp style podcast adventure recorded live at various conventions throughout the year, produced by Outcast Multimedia (aka Podcasting’s Mr. Rich Sigfrit). I’ll post a link to the episode when it becomes available online.

But right now I’ve got to drag my sorry ass out to the bus stop and resume my role as responsible adult. I’m figuring it will take me at least a week to recover from the con and my parents’ visit last week, but I’ll do my best to get back on track as quickly as I can.
