and here comes the post-con hangover...  
...not a literal hangover, but the feeling's the same.

Will post a proper con update (including explaining the meaning behind the icon!) soon, but as well as being a little bummed that I'm back home today I have some awful news.

I have no pictures. At all.

I took my good camera and zoom lens this weeked, got what should have been fantastic pictures, took them in to get processed, and was handed back six films which they tell me were blank. Since I've had issues with the processers before I am never using them again. Ever.

I'm absolutely gutted right now, but loving seeing everyone else's pictures and reports!

Sorry guys!

The girl handed me them and said "was it a new camera?" I said "No, I've never had problems with it before now." She said, "Sorry about that, we kept hoping each one would have something on it." I said "These were really important pictures" and at the tone in my voice the smile dropped from her face.

I am so... gutted, not just for me but for you guys too - I had so many perfect shots and to find there's just nothing? Gah! But at least there are the official ones, and the memories.

*hugs*

It's annoying, but on the plus side - I was there, I have the memories, I have other people's pics to remind me of that, and nothing is going to take that away. :)

It's annoying rather than devastating now, because as soon as I walked back into the house I saw the 'hug' picture sitting atop my desk and suddenly everything seemed to be that little bit better again.

Nothing is going to take away the memories and that's the main thing. I'm more upset that I can't share them all with you guys than anything, because you were all so awesome this weekend that I wanted to give you something back just to show how grateful I am.

jacked up pictures that should be but aren't is horrible.

:-(

I think I would throw a fit if that happened.

I fully expected the majority of them to be too blurred or dark to use, but to get none at all and for them to try to blame my good camera for it is annoying as all get out. But I have the memories, I'm seeing some pictures popping up all over my flist right now, and I have my *hug* picture (as well as the Nicki and Alona ones, so it's not as bad as it could have been.

If the lab assistant woman had kept that simpering smile on her face I think I may have become violent (or at the very least created a scene), but when she heard my tone of voice I think she realised how close to the edge I was and tried the sympathy approach.

That happened to me after my week in Turkey. I had taken four rolls of film of all these amazing places and people . . . and all four were blank.

Of course, that was because my camera apparently froze to death in Stockholm. . . .

It sucks doesn't it? I feel like I spent a huge amount of time watching things threw a viewfinder and now have noting to show for it. Ah well, what did we ever do before cameras?!

(I've been saying things like that all weekend - "what did we ever do before wheelie-suitcases" being the most commonly used phrase!)

At least we have the memories, right? Even if we can't share them.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the con. Sorry to hear about the pictures.

It was an incredible experience - I'm coming to terms with the loss of the pictures now.

I'm still bouncing!

It was a bit like a sucker punch when the girl in the shop said they were all blank. I'm dealing with it better now, mostly because there's been so many awesome pictures popping up all over my flist (and I can sit and grin like a loon at them all!)

And then there's the one in my icon... *g*

Fuck it Sho, if that were me I think I would have killed someone.

Thank god that the official pics were so good.(not a lot of consolation)

Seriously pissed off about it, but there's nothing I can do right now.

We had front row seats on the Sunday as well (well, purplephoenix03 and I were actually on the floor because we'd given up our seats for disabled con goers) and I could literally count the freckles... Grrr.

(got your shortlist by the way, sorry I couldn't get mine to you before the weekend - hopefully by tonight!)

OH NOES!

*clings* I know how excited you were!

Well, all my pics and stuff was taken on a tiny digi cam with uber shaky hands but you know I'll dump everything on a disc and post it to you soon. I know where you liiivee...

;)

As for the hug pic - DUDE, so far I've only seen you, Mary and I having got a hug from Jensen! Have you seen any more?!
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: asylum//squee!!! Jensen!whiskyinmind on May 16th, 2007 08:38 am (UTC)
*hugs you*

You are an absolute star! (Been watching the Jason & Jensen vid this morning before anyone came into the office - have I told you you're made of awesome?)

Nope - I think so many people were worried about where to draw the line between fan and 'crazy mad stalker fangirl who'll jump him on the stairs' that they didn't want to ask. Yay for us!

Oh 'sho. I'm so sorry the pics didn't work out. Did they still charge you? If so...bastards!

good god he looks adorable with stubble ::wibbles::
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: asylum//squee!!! Jensen!whiskyinmind on May 16th, 2007 08:41 am (UTC)
I think they were planning on charging me but the look I was giving her and the tone in my voice probably warned her off. I have the blank films sitting on my living room table right now and am kinda thinking of maybe going back to strangle the processers with them. :)

Scruffy Jensen definitely pushes all the right buttons, he's just... wow. And so much more tanned than I thought he would be!

Hey, just woken up after getting home last night after 22.00, still cant believe it was all real.

That sucks out loud about your pictures *huge hugs* I know other will have gotten amazing pictures but its not the same.

I am going to scour the net now and collect everyones post Asylum reports etc, I will put up my pic when I have the energy to go up stairs to the big computer.

Roll on May 2008!

So glad you got home okay! i was thinking about you earlier this morning, couldn't quite remember when you were due to get in - I don't know how you managed it, I was zoned out all day yesterday just trying to get caught up with myself!

Can't wait till next May! (And I so should have kept bidding on that number 1 ticket...)

OMG I'm so sorry to hear that. You can find some pictures I took in my journal. I know that don't help getting your pictures back. *hugs*
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstonewhiskyinmind on May 17th, 2007 06:24 pm (UTC)
Seeing what everyone else has posted is actually really incredible - it was like a sucker punch when the girl handed the blank negatives back to me, but I'm coming to terms with it now. Sorta...

*heads over to take a look at your pictures!*
