Pad thai and plasma rifles

Fairly long meeting with drunkenphlower last night at Sawatdee on Nicollet, during which receipts were passed on along with registration forms, 2004 expeditures were discussed, and we agreed on some things that need doing before the convention. The food was okay, I guess...some people really like Thai, but I've come to the conclusion that I prefer Vietnamese, or better yet Chinese when it comes to Asian cuisine. Korean is okay, and so is Japanese, but those are really subsets of Chinese in my mind, for what that's worth.

After the meeting drunkenphlower dropped me off at the Park & Ride where I'd left the Kia and stuck around to make sure it started. Which it did; I then motored off to get some cat food, cat litter, and some more sandwich bread before heading home and working on my Halo skills. I have a long way to go...am still occasionally looking at my feet and getting myself into positions where I get whacked by Covenant troops sneaking up behind me. Practice, practice, practice, and hopefully an end to the motion sickness that I'm still getting occasionally.

Still not sure what to think about this essay. I left comments on danae and mesmericones' LJs about it, and am pecking away at a long essay on the subject of nice guys and what happens to them. I gave up on being a nice guy a while back, myself, although I'm not enough of an S.O.B. to keep people from being surprised when I warn them that I'm not a nice guy. Oh, well.

Fifteen more registrations today, not counting the packet danae sent over from MAS, which drunkenphlower already included in her total. Today's total is now 394, so we're definitely going to hit 400 by tomorrow, maybe 450 by the time the last of the $30 registrations dribble in next week. Also, we have our first AMV contest submission!

Congrats on all the reg's........MarsCon is right around the corner! Yiecks! I need to wrangle up more volunteers.....are you coming to MarsCon?? hee,hee....

Thanks. Good heavens, we have almost as many pre-reg at this point as we had a week before the convention last year. O.O

I'm wondering whether it would make sense for me to go to Marscon. On the one hand, I enjoyed it last year, but OTOH, one of my Master's program classes is that Saturday, and the last session of another class in the program is the Monday after Marscon. Which could make it a very interesting weekend...I'll have to wait and see how I'm doing in those classes, I think, and will probably wind up paying at the door.

We have one day passes by the way:) Just go to registration and ask for it:)

Eh, I don't beliieve in those. I'd just as soon pay for the whole weekend and have done with it, because the most likely scenario is that I'll show up early on Friday night, come back late Saturday afternoon, and then for a little bit of Sunday.

I done earned mah grumpiness. I got a right to be surly! ^_^

We get called bitches if we are surly ie women...
Jan. 7th, 2005 06:15 pm (UTC)
Not always, though I agree that with women surliness does tend to be viewed more negatively than with guys.

AMV? We got an AMV? Gimme gimme! Oh, and Jo would probably like a copy too. ;)

I'm still wondering what happened to the copy of "Cable Problems", the winner from last year. Yeah, I know, not your problem, really...

*_* An AMV contest submission? Really? *chorus of angels*

It wins! It wins! (I lie! I lie!)
Jan. 7th, 2005 01:22 am (UTC)
It's a strong contender at this point, O-Jo-hime. ^_^
Jan. 7th, 2005 01:27 am (UTC)
Given the competition thus far I should hope so. :}
Jan. 8th, 2005 02:42 am (UTC)
Okay, okay. I have a thing for Thai. Next time we'll do Vietnamese or something. :-) See you tomorrow.
