My (Depending on how you look at it) Chicago Horror Story.

Rate this Entry
So, for those of you who haven't seen this bit of news while on your recent internet adventures, on December 10th, in Chicago, there was a small "terrorist attack" in the Hyatt hotel on 9300 West Bryn Mawr Avenue in Rosemont. The attack was nothing big, someone put chlorine powder in a stair well, and... well... it turned into chlorine gas. Or maybe it wasn't chlorine powder, but something else, but either way the place was gased with chlorine gas, resulting in the hospitalization of 19 people.
Here's the funny/horror story part: It was a furry convention, and I was in the area on personal matters - of witch I have no desire to speak about. I had been heading to my hotel, to find that the road I was on had been blocked. People where being allowed through, so I stopped to go and see what was happening. As I walk closer to the Hyatt, several hundred people where outside, with at least a quarter of them in fur suits.

So, again, if you don't know already, a furry is someone who enjoys anthropomorphized (Sorry for spelling) characters, and use fur suits to take on these characters. Its like someone took LARP, shoved it with animal people, and added in a lifestyle element together.

Long story short, I asked someone what happened, showed sympathy, and then got hugged by like 50 fur suiters. Yep, exicting trip for so many reasons.
