You have absolutely no idea, no idea how amped I am for the anticipating arrival of Acen. I have been waiting for this moment since last year. This is my first time going, so I really expect to have lots of fun and meet people. Only one month away...the suspense is killing me :o .

I'm looking forward to it but I'm also panicking because I want to lose more weight before the con so I fit better in my outfits. :P

Haha I'm also extremely excited! This will be my first year that I'm gonna get autographs and attend panels! (3rd year for ACen though).

Also, I'm excited to room with my awesome roomies! The fun times WILL happen.

I'm sweating a bit though cause I JUST found the perfect cosplay for me to wear ... and I'm not gonna loose weight between now and then cause they make it to my current measurements!
I've found that I get paid on the Friday of the con ... I'm so glad I have direct deposit! Only problem is that there aren't any banks in chicago of mine.

If you have a debit card theres a few things you can do to get cash that will avoid annoying ATM fees.

1. Just use your card all weekend.
2. Check with your bank if you can use your debit card to make a cash advance at another bank without penalty.
3. Go to a grocery store and use it as a debit and get cash back. You could probably even get away with doing this thursday night if you did it late as the transaction shouldn't hit your acct immediately.
4. Go out to dinner with friends, put their portion on your debit card and have them give you cash for it.

Hope that helps.

Okay, now you're stealing my response.

There's a grocery store one stop up from the hotel on the blue-line, and they'll do pretty much any amount back. My favorite is to round to the nearest $100 and buy a pack of gum or a soda. It's like you're getting it for free.

The "buy dinner" thing is great, as well, because it's social, and you won't have to take the el for 20 minutes.

And don't forget: for those of you 21+ and looking to avoid hotel bars (or want to have booze in your room), there's some weird blue law that limits the selling of booze after 10pm. Had this problem in January while I was staying at the Westin and wanted a bottle of wine.

I do have a debit card, I have uh 2 actually ^^; One is specifically for ACen, while the other is for everything else. My direct deposit will go into my MAIN account (ACen account is secondary). I don't like to use my debit at the con due to artsies and dealers ... so maybe I'll do yours and his suggestion v

That's a good idea, the grocery thing ... only thing is ... I don't know how much will be in my account, so I know how much to take out. Hrm ... well I DO work in the accounting department at my company ... I'm sure I could find out then huh? lol
Perhaps I'll talk my roomie into driving me to a store XD

If not the taste, then the SMELL alone is about as close as you will get to acen. I can smell the fanboy funk for miles.

You can also feel the sting of the yaoi/yuri paddles.... even if you don't ever get whacked with one.

I'm sure that if you call your bank, they'll be able to give you a balance. I'm sure you can also use teh intarwebs to find out. There should be a number on the back of your debit card. :mellow:

As I said (elsewhere, I think), I prefer to do the whacking. Here's hoping someone will lend me a paddle.

I never go to AP for one there cheech. Second, I'll have to see how finances are for Animarathon. I'm not sure if I'll make it, I'd have to get up at like 4 in the morning to make that drive then stay all f-in day and drive back. Long way to drive from cincy area

but ACEN now acen is special. ACEN is worth the sacrificing of Vacation days. BWAHAHAHAH

EWwwwwww no more talking about fanboy funk!!!!! The worst part is when you're eating something, and you're all like... this tastes like fanboy... that's the WORST. Note to self, don't eat nasty imported snacks...

I can't wait for acen! I've had alot of things happening lately, and Acen is the one thing thats kept me looking ahead, looking positive. When i read you could taste it the only thing i thought as acens flavor was Mountain Dew, from all the Dew I drink to stay awake.
