ALA 6 (2010) Report: Part 4 - Sunday

Wait a minute, did I just pull an all-nighter? What time is it?

It's 7am. And really, I just pulled an all-nighter. So, what to do now...hey, I can pack my things up, take another shower, and prepare to pull another day before I sleep on the airplane ride back home!

By then the Veoh upload was done and I was able to post that as soon it was done encoding, and with that I went downstairs. Actually, I did take a 20 minute power nap behind the Artists Jam (or whatever they called it) before finding out that both my roommates were out by 9am which was the best-case scenario. With that, I call it a day from the room, get everything downstairs before everyone else got their things downstairs, and check out. I also stop by Starbucks again, but this time my breakfast was a tall glass of Tazo® Black Shaken Iced Tea Lemonade and fruit bars my roommate left.

By 10am the CLAMP gathering is about to start.

After that I spend a lot of time with the Emperor Lelouche, Suzaku, and Ryan (as Ashford Lelouche) taking shots.


And then I get these three shots.

With autographs, I help Ryan out with getting the last few that he needs. By now it's into the afternoon, and it would be a few hours before my auntie would pick me Ryan up to get a much-need-post-con meal. We stick it around the Game Room, Dealers Hall, and Artists Alley while trying to keep up with Ravens/Pats and Packers/Cardinals. By 3pm, an hour before we leave, I went to check out the Sunday Steampunk demonstration that they were doing down in the patio area. Diet Coke and Mentos all around.

I also saw Russia and America from Hetalia fighting, which got to me explaining to them the plot of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 1 and 2 as told by the characters of Hetalia. I got close.

With 4pm around the corner, I say my last goodbyes before heading out to the center of Los Angeles, and to a well-known Los Angeles landmark...

Roscoe's House of Chicken 'N Waffles. Oh yeah.

All this, plus the Mac and Cheese? I'm set.

Since Ryan came along, I got this shot -

- which prompted me to make this when I got home -

Yes, I had to.

We dropped off Ryan back at the hotel, where we had our last goodbyes, although we would meet again at Fanime. I got to the airport around the time I wanted to get there, but with no security line. So for the time being I wait around and suck down a McDonalds shake to kill time. By the time I got on the plane I was already knocked out thinking about everything I did over the weekend.

I arrived back in Sacramento just before 10pm, and finally my 62 hour marathon journey was complete.

-Day 3 & ALA 6 End-
