sent David to the show, and it was one of the crew from there that was
really drunk the night before and sitting right where my jacket was.
So David made a call, and about an hour later the crew from the party
showed up with my jacket, and my Passport! WOOT!! I can go home. But
do I really want to?

Apanowicz (Caprica) sporting the Supes shirt with me and then punching
me out! See how she put her whole body into it? That's a punch!
usually shill for our guests, but if you ever see Magda at a show, go
up and talk to her. She is an incredibly unique person and gave the
most amazingly detailed autographs at the show. Every signed photo came
with a story.
Lee in her Purple Dress punching me out! Another girl giving me the
full Body Punch. No lazy jabs here!
once again, it's time for VOLUNTEER SWAG!! Here's some of the autographs
and free art that my (awesome) volunteer team got at the show!

Swag! Here's Shane Kirshenblatt and Kurt Lehner. They were so happy
with the work my team did at the show, they rewarded me with a gift!
A faux cover with me as the victim, and the little Alien Heads! AWESOME!!!

it was time to say goodbye, and close out the show and head to Gabby's!

the bartender about the party from the night before. She said there
was an amazing Poutine shop right near it. I asked, "what the hell
is Poutine?" Shambooty explained that it was French Fries, covered
in Cheese and Gravy. Shocking.
the Chef came out to thank us for getting him a pass to the show and
walking him around introducing him to all the celebs and asked if we
wanted anything to eat. What else could we ask for?
and our Poutine!! Had I known about this stuff before, it's all I would
have eaten all week! It's freaking AWESOME!
and I commented that this is one of the few times that we were 110%
sure that there is no spit or hair in our food. Ryan loves us.

That's right, I'm drinking beer. Why? I drank Gabby's out of Jack Daniels.
There was none left.

not really sure what's going on here.
one confuses me even more. Froggy, Shambooty and Tara. No idea.
one is also a mystery.
down the bar! Here's the Gabby's crew! Tara, Ryan, me and Shambooty!
thanks to everyone at Gabby's for making us feel at home. If you're
ever downtown in Toronto, head to Gabby's on King Street West and tell
them Spat sent you! I won't get you anything, but at least they'll know
you went to the website! And plan on this being our main hub for next
CN Tower! First is the view from my hotel, and the other two I took
while walking around it before heading to the airport.
walking around, the wind blew this wood construction wall away, and
it almost took out a car! I ran up and held it down until the construction
crew could get it back in place. Yeah, I'm kind of an International
that final piece from the Wizard Booth. I saved it to hang in the Wizard
Photo with Jewel. Yippie!

was sent to me by my buddy Paul who printed the Volunteer and Staff
that's the end.
thanks to Wizard for letting me come to cons and party, AND paying me
to do it! Woo Hoo! Thanks to all my Volunteers and Staff for all their
hard work, couldn't do the show without you! Thanks to all the artists,
media guests and exhibitors that came to the show. Thanks to all my
Costume Contest Judges and everyone who sponsored it and participated!
way, I bought a Pedometer to see how much I walk at a given show. It
capped out at 36 miles Saturday at about noon or so. It just stopped
if you've never been to Toronto, go. It's a gorgeous city. It's like
they took all the hippest, fun parts of NY and just dropped them off
a little more North.
you all next year!
