You know you've been going to cons too long when...

Postby ki_chan » Fri May 31, 2013 9:33 pm

Time to play a game! Kind of... It's meant to be in good humor. A spin on "You know you're a redneck when..."

Instead, you know you've been going to conventions too long when...

I'll start!

1. You remember the days of snail mailing in your convention registration and getting your registration confirmation through the mail as well.

8. When you've spent more money on cons then you have on schooling... Or anything else, for that matter.

11. When you describe all your con merchandise by which year you got it
Friday: Intern Dana-Welcome to Night Vale (100% done)
Saturday: Amy Pond-Impossible Astronaut (100% done)

the future is here and it's about a 100 feet above the arby's

Wow! How long ago was that?? :shock:

Was the first extensive con website only set up real late in the 2000s or something? :? If I recall, the 'current' form of the Internet started around 1996, although those sites were pretty amateur compared to today's.

When you remember meeting the guy who you sent your money to, to get your fan sub tapes (VHS) and became lifelong friends.
Sam: Cas! What happened to you?
Castiel: I found a Liquor store....
Sam: And?
Castiel: I DRANK IT!

When you don't see a foreseeable end to it anymore. I thought I would stop once I got deep into college. HAH!
