I'm back from PAX. I'm taking today off for recovery and important errands like groceries so that I can eat for the week. Since finishing my library books is part of my travel recovery plan, I figured blogging could be part of it too.

As expected, the conference was good fun. My team of 4 raised over $300 for child's play, which makes me think that maybe I should consider doing a cookie fundraiser at the university or something. I doubt I'd raise as much since students are poor, but it might still be worthwhile to turn $20 worth of cookies into a larger donation for sick kids.

Anyhow speculation aside, it looks like the Cookie Brigade as a whole managed around $5000, so go us!

Cosplaying went incredibly well. It was a first time for both me and Susan, and we had a great experience. Somewhat surprisingly, it seemed that the majority of people figured out the Bubble Bobble costumes (which got a lot of attention. Yes, that's us on Kotaku. They also mentioned us for mad props on the first cosplay roundup post. Awesome!) and the people who counted got the Guybrush/Elaine ones (yes, that link is to Telltale Games' twitpic -- how cool is that?)

Here's a couple of pictures I had John take of us:

Bubble Bobble (in front of some glass baubles):

And here's one of us with the voice actor for Guybrush, Dominic Amato (who is a totally awesome guy, and he even had lunch with us later that day!):

Looking forwards to telling my billion little stories of other awesomeness later, but that's all you get for now!

Did the "DIA" in the last pic begin with "NVI"? Sorry it's the first thing that my linguist's eye is drawn towards :) The costumes are nice too.

I have, by the way, decided to start an RL blogging project at Battlestar Syntactica (http://syntagmata.wordpress.com/). We'll see if I can actually sustain it.
