Gettin' Kinda Greedy
Posted by Mappy at 1:48 PM
What happened to the news? Well theres not really much news-wise
back here where i am but outside there were a few fun events
going on. Only things going on with me would be the (still)
constantly malfunctioning computer that i refuse to get rid
of. Why? Because it cost me my entire tax return and i'm still
stubbornly trying to get it to work. To think now it won't
even allow me to enable Cookies. But at least it'll burn CDs
(at 2x =P). Not only that but my super-duper HighSchool Graduation
present, aka My VCR...broke. No longer will it play tapes.
So until i find a way to get to the nearest repair store (is
there one?) then i can't copy anything anymore.
Expo was great! Not only is California much more scenic and
large but the people seem to be really great and friendly.
Met several new groups, played the arcades, and got my first
field testing of a digital camera + handcam. Results; Immaculate
pictures and some very entertaining video footage.
Following Expo was Anime Festival Orlando 2. In an extremely
last minute descision and some quick planning on my part,
Dogbert and i were able to make it there and back with cash
to spare (military discounts do have its perks). While there
got to meet up with lotsa message board friends, as well as
South Florida DDR crew. DDR scene is getting large. almost
too large even... whats up with these little annoying DDR
Pics up from Nadine's birthday party. was a fun lil gathering
where everyone aside from the guys worked on costumes all
night. Pretty fun, and then later on we went out to Dim Sum
for some huge feast of miscellaneous Chineese dishes. Yes,
i even had some of the Chicken Feet which tasted like sponge
Plans for AWA are still a go-go. Lotsa people going, got
a room reserved and possible DigitalCamera + VideoCam combo
i had at Expo. Should be great footage once again worthy of
its own site. and speaking of sites, theres a chance fuji-kon.com
might become a reality. Massive con coverage on its own seperate
domain name! Woot woot!
