How much sleep will you get this AX?

Greetings all,

I'm wondering how much sleep you hope to get this AX? I know for myself I get no sleep the 1st two nights of the convention and barely any the 3rd night... maybe 5 hours all told. I have such an adrenaline rush at cons that I forget to sleep and eat.

What about you guys and gals???

FRom,
Joe

When I was younger, I got very little sleep at cons, but these days I do try to get 6 to 8 hours a night.

It all depends on when the dancing ends that night and when the first panel I want to go to the next morning begins. ^_^' I don't go much over that... and I like to be back to the hotel room by at the very latest 11PM, but probably sooner because of darkness... nothing like getting lost in the dark in a strange place! Also, you gotta regroup before you sleep and iron that costume for the next day!

Hopefully enough.
8+ hours is always good. But I can survive with less if needs be.

Lots and lots and lots. There is almost no reason to wake up early. And as I have said in several other threads before, STAYING AWAKE FOR THE WHOLE CON IS NOT COOL. It is very unhealthy and it's just gross to see zombies walking around the con... if you forget to sleep who's to say you dont forget to shower? Seriously guys. Get sleep. There is no reason not to.

When I go to cons I take 2 or 3 showers a day... sometimes 4... Smelly fanboys is one thing but a smelly fangirl is another... I remember at AX 99 there was this one girl who smelled like she hasn't taken a shower in a month. I could smell her from 30 feet away and it almost made me puke.

I took 12 showers at Ani-Magic last year.

FRom,
Joe

*nods* Yes, everyone, please listen to Maryssa! Sleep is very important! You spend that much time & money preparing for cons, you should really try and be alert & awake for all of it. AND you need to stay healthy, too, AFTER the con! I don't know how many after-con reports have people saying that they're sick.

Oh, and please, people, try to avoid the excessive drinking and hangovers. It's not good for the - er - aroma and atmosphere in general.
