Wink Passing Time in Your Hotel?

So after a long day of tomfoolery at the convention, what do you usually do to relax in your hotel room? Do you bring along a gaming console? Watch a movie? Play charades? Share it here!

I myself plan to dust off the good ol' Gamecube to bring with me so my sis, friend and I could play Mario Party 4! XD

Fall asleep.

Snore loudly.

Sleep, or something else involving the bed that's 18+.

Sex?

Although, in my case, conventions don't tend to fire up my loins.

^ Only if I'm not utterly exhausted on my end...which I usually am.:P Hence why I put "Sleep" first.

Oh, and add taking off my costume and delighting in just hanging around the room in my skivvies for a few hours (or if it's cold, pyjamas). After all day in heavy, hot, restricting costume and wig, it feels DAMN AWESOME. And then add in a nice hot shower to get rid of all the con-sweat and con-funk and the gunk from styling my hair for under the wig.

I've only been to a far-away con once, and there I shared a hotel room with my friends. So we spent the time playing games, playing cards and talking.

Possibly before heading into the convention proper. Afterwards, all I want to do is clean myself off and go to bed.

Sleep?

Last con I stayed away for, we sat up and watched Doctor Who while we were waiting to go see RHPS. I don't remember what happened after that, as I had a massive panic attack during the Time Warp and had to be escorted back to the room by strangers. I assume sleep.

One of the dudes we were staying with had a Playstation, but they spent most of the con playing it, so I wouldn't really call it "passing time."

When I'm not sleeping (precious sleep!), I bring shrimp chips, wasabe peas, Albertacos/Whole Foods Burritos, salsa, chips...and then I watch a movie or draw something that has nothing to do with anime. I get mental overload when everything has to do with anime. I need to unplug and reflect!

Sleep. Sleep. Cuddle. Sleep. Shower. Sleep.
Occasionally compare loot with roommates.
Sleep.

Did I mention sleep? Maybe I'm old, but by the time I wander back to the hotel room at a con I'm just exhausted. But we usually stay at the con until late.

My roomies and I usually hook up the laptop to the TV and fall asleep watching something or we'll just talk for ages.
I rarely bring a gaming system..it's too much hassle to pack all that stuff for just a weekend.

I'm really not in my hotel unless I'm getting ready or sleeping. If everyone happens to be back at the same time at night, we might stay up and talk a little bit, but usually after a long day, I'm ready for bed!
