God I hate Chicago

I fucking knew it. I just knew this would happen--I made plans to stay in Chicago for a week after Vividcon to see Sebastian Stan at Wizard World, something I’ve never done before (I’m not usually an actor-con type person), but I figured I was in the city anyway and he’ll never come out here to the Northwest. Guess who just cancelled?


And now I’m stuck there with a nonrefundable plane ticket and the costs of all these goddamn hotels, and there’s literally no one I give a shit about seeing there other than meeting up with my friends who were also going to see Sebastian. They didn’t even say whether the refund means the entire cost of admission, or if I’ll have to buy an actual pass for the fucking con, a con I really have no interest in attending. I have always hated Chicago--every time I go there something shitty happens, last year was the only year I’ve gone where it was actually a relatively pleasant trip and no disasters. I should have known.


I am so bummed. I didn’t really care about the autographs, but I was looking forward to actually seeing his pretty face in person and he's always such an entertaining panelist.

Effing hell! Perhaps you and your friends could organise something non-Con related (not like that!) to do in or around Chicago? There must e something there worth seeing/doing?

Unfortunately, they aren't coming either, so…I had to fork out the exhorbitant fee for changing flights and hotels. But at least I can still meet up with devilpiglet for a bit, so that will go a long way toward making me feel better.

It's just that…most of what I wanted to see in Chicago I saw, and it seems to hate me, so I just hate it right back. And it's unbearably hot in summer, which, as a person raised in a climate much like yours, I don't do well in. So many other places I would have loved to spend all this money at!

Yeah. Sebastian is not my favorite right now. I mean, I'm glad he got a role, but…couldn't he have cancelled in a place where no one cares about? :-D

Right? He could have at least checked with you first...

I'm sorry I won't be around that week. It really is a great city with so much to do and see.

It just seems to hate me. Last year really was the only year I've been where nothing went horribly wrong. Our flights were even sort of on time! And killa and I took tours, and walked around, and met up with people, and we both have such bad luck there we were waiting and waiting…but it was fine. I should really have known better, but I wanted to meet up with my friend, and see him, and I was stupid to think I could have nice things.
