I presume everyone's up for the traditional lunch plan? Come by around 10:??, shoot the breeze, catch up then take off from my place @11 (if you can't make it in time then it's all of maybe a 2 minute difference in drive time). Then we head back by 12:30 or so to meet anyone who opted to do their own thing for lunch.

Excited for tomorrow! O(≧∇≦)O

I'll hopefully make it in time for lunch, if not I'll catch everyone after that.

Yes it was a great time! I'm glad everyone seemed to like the T shirst despite the mathematical error. As in coins, stamps, etc it is the flawsthat makesomething valuable. At least that's the spin I'm putting on it.

The artwork was superb.We are very lucky to have jas in our group. And the Name that Tune was a Tour de Force. 99 songs & fun all the way through. Anime Hair just gets better every year.

Craziest anime night ever. Thanks to Cat Soup and consuming quite a bit of Bacardi Demon Rum I had a sort of interesting experience. When I had to move my car for Ben to leave I was concerned he had too much to drink & I better follow him for a while to make sure he was ok. Somewhere around KU Med Center I realized I was just following a random blue car. So I went home. That's all I remember.
To watch Anime is life. All else is merely waiting.

That is so much of a better story than any of us could make to try and figure why you ended up at KU Med lol.

I had such a good time! I BLAME! all of you for the good time~

Thanks to everyone who made it. Everyone seems to have had a good time so I'm grateful that everything went well. Thanks Zero for amassing a metric ton of music for us (and for the emergency ice run in the morning). Cheers to Scott and Jas for the most excellent commemorative shirts. Scott was also good enough to bring the übercooler, the [very popular] sushi and the anniversary cake! Thank you Brian and Ben for bringing by goodies. I always get some of the core filler goodies but the beer and chips rounded things out perfectly. We dug up some pretty crazy shows to watch after which few of us will never quite be the same but were probably ideally cracktastic material for viewing in a group.

I'm glad I got everyone hooked on the impromput screen-saver game but the joke was partially on the lot of us (ok, mostly me). I've suspected it literally for years but the Picasa screen saver I've used for ages to handle multi-monitor support is somewhat broken. I finally did a Google search on my suspicions this morning and found that it has an undocumented (and fairly small) image cap. So I might have 19K images but it was only shuffling a tiny handful of them. I knew I had tons and tons of images that I just never saw come up yet I'd see some of the same stuff come up repeatedly for months. I do think new images got added to the shuffle on occasion but only because others got booted out of the mix. I've found a new screen saver and the breadth of images is now suitably mind-boggling. Because of this I'm scheduling the next anniversary party earlier. How's next Saturday sound?! ;D

Also, I feel obliged to record the first episode's dialog from The Disappearance of Cap'n Scott so that this invaluable exchange doesn't get lost in the annals of history. (I'm inexplicably giddy at the though of aliens, sifting through the rubble of our civilization, throwing their hands up in disgust at their utter failure to decipher our existence [or anything coherent] through little gems such as this that we've left in our wake.) A little back story first, when Ben left, Scott needed to move his car to let Ben out of the way. Upon doing so he simply kept going. Thinking he was being silly and just driving around the block for effect, I waved to him like an idiot. I stood on the sidewalk for a few minutes before scratching my head and going in. After about 15m of the rest of us trying to figure out the prank, I finally texted him:

Me:Hello?
Scott:Had to escort Ben home. Where r u?
Me:[Thinking he's kidding around]Sitting on the curb.
Me:I am a beacon for lost souls.
Scott:Gotta take a piss 2 much rum
Scott:Bacon?
Me:Canadian?
Scott:Eh?
Me:Neh?
Scott:On Sweet Blvd heading home don't worry Ben did ok
Me:Huh?
Scott:South west. Not sweet. Stoopid spell check.
Scott:What kurb?
Me:Sweet JP?
Scott:Green lite
Scott:By ku mc
Me:Wat?!
Scott:Watt?
Me:1.21 jiggawatt?!
Scott:Red light rum red light rum redrum
Me:Redline?
Scott:Home. AC. 70 degrees. ZZZZ
Me:Goodnight?

My sources have informed me that Scott remembers nothing of this conversation. All I managed to derive was that he eventually concluded that the blue car he was following across the plains was, in fact, *not* Ben's car. There was also some noncommittal grumbling about rum causing an "unusual reaction". No other details followed so I'm left to the only obvious conclusion: explosive diarrhea.

That weekend was odd for me. HetaliaCon imploded, planned to go to this, then CosplaCon had a table at the last minute. So yeah... woot?

It was very well run for a first year con. 1400 folks attended, and me and my vendor partner had a lot of fun.

I think though they will have to move it up to Columbia since it will be bigger next year hotel wise, but that's fine by me. Party it up in CoMo!

Yesterday I played a complete 3-character game of Super Dungeon Explore with a couple of my gaming buddies. The players won, but it was close. I'm more convinced than ever that you have to have at least one character with some kind of area attack that can target at least three bad guys.
