While I was sitting and deciding whether or not I should go eat and talking to Rhi on the phone,
some hawt music started blasting. The first song was an awesome mix of Everybody to the Limit. Much
Waited until Sunday to buy stuff (except deck of cards for Sparks), but it didn't really matter
much. Got a .hack wall scroll for $11 (darn them for not having the Lain one I wanted), and a sweet
blue cloak which is going to make my Neko costume much more awesome for $68.25 ($65+tax; couldn't
get price lowered cuz she handmakes them and there are two more huge conventions coming up soon).
Alexi told me I needed a pat, because I was blue.
Would have had Burger King, but the line was exceptionally long. There was a place right there that
had junk food type stuff, so I just loaded up there with [follows] and planned to eat only that for
the rest of the weekend. Got a good dinner instead, but that story follows as well. Somewhere.
[Doritos (Cooler Ranch)
Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies
Baked Apple Quaker Oatmeal Breakfast Square
Two bags of Trail Mix (different kinds)
The business center at the hotel was pay-only, which is why I didn't update while I was there.
(Actually, when I went to update, the 'net was down, thus forcibly having me save money.)
The drive up was only 2-and-a-half hours, which was amazingly short.
I got someone yelling "Blue!" and someone saying "Hey blue dude." And someone saying "I like that
outfit! [...]" as I passed them on the street.
The L'Arc~en~Ciel concert was awesome - nothing like having music pounding in your chest. And I
walked away pretty darn deaf. Definitely the best part of the weekend. Rampant sex would have been
better, but I was too busy trying to get into my hotel room to bother trying to get into anyone
We came at 3 to check in (which is when they told us to come and all, cuz we'd been there a few
times earlier), and we had to wait cuz it wasn't clean. After about an hour, the guy gave us the
room half off (yay!). After another half hour, he gave us free dinner too (yay!), which is how I
managed to have dinner. Then I got keys for the room, but it was still messy, so I dropped stuff
off and went to the concert.
Thank you, Pat, for making me the armbands. :) Though I think I killed one. :P lol. I'll make you
look at it before Neko. ;)
At Neko, I'm gonna wear a sign that says
...I'm blue." I think. Now that I've got the cloak, I might not. But I probably will. Hugs =
I realized while I was there that anime conventions are a great place to pick up very underage
girls.. Kinda scary.
I missed out on my nap time because of the room thing. Considering I was already at Tenshi's to
pick up Alexi at 6, it was a long day.
Otakon had about 20,000 people (compared to Neko's 1300 or 1600), and about 8,000 of them were at
the concert. The line was 17 1/2 blocks long at one point, maybe longer. Kinda funny, though, cuz
the line couldn't block the street, so I just hopped in line near the front since the rest of the
line was blocked off behind us. XP
Suddenly wished I hadn't bought so much junk food, since I got dinner, but that's okay.
There were lots of homeless guys hanging about, but only one of them was asking for change. I gave
him the change I had, since he was showing initiative.
Dinner ended up being $33.97, so we left an $11.03 tip. XP (Would have maxed to the 50, but that
would seem assholey.)
The net connection was down for some reason when I tried to update on Saturday night, so that
forcibly kept me from spending money.
Oh, and I now have a Gravi badge from Otakon. Licked by Raleigh, nonetheless!
Alexi and I both ended up wishing we had brought our laptops, as the hotel had free wireless. ;_j
As I was walking Saturday night, there were only a few clouds in the sky, but lightning was still
coming out of nowhere - lit up the sky. Seemed like someone was turning the lights on and off
I left the rave cuz I suck and still need to get comfy dancing. ;_j It takes a lot to get me
As I was walking back from the rave, I was grabbed by the guy that I met during WG competitions -
he was the assistant director of a lower guard (cool guy). It was like, "You're wearing your guard
"stfu, I'm a loser. ;_j"
Around the time of the rave, there were lots more hug signs than there were earlier. There were
three girls sitting in a row with signs that read, progressively: "pat me," "hug me," "kiss me."
That was hawt.
Alexi can't talk. flatulence <> flagrant.
The drive back took about 7 hours total, including an hour stop at Ikea. After about 5 hours (which
was right after we left Ikea), we were about halfway. It sucked so much.
Wish I could read my writing.. *can't make out what else this sheet says*
We were supposed to game Sunday night, but then that fell through, but we ended up gaming Monday
night, so that's okay. Need to read up on Divine Sacrifice..
I wanted to make it back in time on Sunday to go see Faji, but unfortunately, traffic was hell. ;_j
A girl slipped and fell and broke her arm. Stupid people kept trying to move it even when the
ambulance was on the way, though we told them a number of times to leave it alone (and she did as
well, through words and SCREAMS OF PAIN!).
There was an emperor penguin on a cheese truck - I think you need to avoid cheese for a bit, Pat.
Or maybe just avoid dairy products altogether until we get through this.
In all the elevators: "Smoking or carrying lighted tobacco products in this elevator is illegal and
subject to a penalty not to exceed $25.00." I'm scared. That's a lot of money.
Stupid Ikea - I was hungry, and they were out of hot dogs and cinnamon buns, thus leaving only
frozen yogurt. Which was good, but I wanted real food. ;_j Wanted a couple hot dogs.
"Strength never used is the most powerful strength." Sakura Wars
Sakura Wars (movie) wasn't very good, though the end was cool. It was the most interesting part of
the movie - and it didn't actually have anything to do with the movie at all. It was just the
characters putting on a play.

FINISH THE SENTENCE

loving. Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer. To suffer is to suffer. To be

unhappy one must love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you're getting

I've seen parts of so many movies on this list, but I didn't put them as seen. So annoying. And I
didn't know about some, so I didn't put those either.
edit: Oh yeah. Otakon was fun, but I think hotel cons are better. And they also run all night, which is nice. Would say more, but at this point, I don't remember/care.
