Otakon – Done and Done

Today was the last day of Otakon.
Not much going on really. The usual last trip to the dealer room, and it got to the point that if I stayed in there any longer, I would have just ended up buying crap that I didn’t actually want.
So I fled.
Saw some cool anime/video game music being done live.
It was all nice symphonic type music, but I was rather tired and it nearly put me to sleep.
Then, as they were wrapping up, they did the Mario stuff. I was soooo happy ^_^

Then we had a late lunch at the slowest place evar!
It was kinda awkward, as hald the party had to leave to deal with paperwork. But they got back in time to finish lunch.

After that, since the con was over, we headed up to ‘s cousins place(I think) to chat with them and have dinner(free Chinese – Woo!).

Just getting into the hotel, stupid tired.

Long day of driving tomorrow, but we don’t have to get home at any specific time so we can sleep in a little.
That’ll be nice.

I suspect I’ll be working from home Tuesday ^_^

Not sure if we’re coming back next year. The general consensus is that it’s too far to enjoy. Or something like that.
Oh well, at least I made it this year.

Maybe AnimeExpo next year. But that involves flying, so it’s really hard to say.

Never know…

Otakon Day 3

I think. It’s a little confusing.
As yesterday was a full day, and at AN, that’s usually Saturday.
But today is Saturday.
Anyway.
I think I spent a little too much time/money in the dealers room today. Finally found GITS, and I honestly think it was the only one at the con.
Yay Me!
Also bought a couple more prints from the girl that does http://nosesoptional.comicgenesis.com/. I just like her style.
They really buggered up the schedule, so we ended up missing some cool things. But not totally missing it, so that was almost more annoying.
Missed the industry panels this year, mostly because I couldn’t be bothered to get up and out in time.
No biggie, if I need to know, I can look it up.

Dinner was good. Not great, but good. Mind you, it did take us a little long to get there. I think it was about 10 before we got out.
Tried to go to this 4-chan thing, and it was completely filled up.
Not even sure what it is…

Now we’re trying to book a hotel for tomorrow, and it’s actually more expensive than this one.
But I don’t think we have to pay for net access, which is good.

Well, I should pack or something.
