As many of my fellow Canadians know, postage rates from Canada to pretty much any where (including Canada!) is rather… astronomical. It was not financially savvy for me to ship anything down to the BlytheCon Seattle organizers for the goodie bags because even though the items I had to give away would have been light. The workers at Canada Post takes bulk into consideration as well, regardless of how lightweight something is. Unfortunate, I know. I really wish that it was cheaper, but it just wasn’t worth it to ship any of it because the cost just wasn’t feasible. I’m not made of money (unfortunately? surprise?).
Luckily, I will be attending BlytheCon tomorrow. I’m currently still in Canada, but I will be in the US tomorrow by leaving bright and early. I actually wrote a final exam today! It was my last final for my last summer course for the term so I am very happy that the summer term is over and I’m finally on a “real” summer holiday! I get a little over two weeks off before the start of term again, and I’m so excited that my first day of holidays will be spent with a whole bunch of Blythe enthusiasts! I am very excited to get to see a lot of people that I haven’t seen since 2011, to meet people that I’ve “met” online, and to make new friends! As mentioned previously, I can be quite shy in large group situations, but you can identify me by the following:
I will have this bag with me! I will have BlytheCon Vancouver buttons to give away if you come to say hi to me. If you mention this blog or the name BlytheLife, I may have extra goodies for you. And if you have Moo or other business cards for trade or to give away, I’ll have some cards for you too!
For those curious, and not into musicals, One Short Day is the name of a song from the musical Wicked when Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) and Galinda (later known as Glinda) visit the Emerald City for the very first time.
