^ Alright, here's a really positive one, from 2013, the year Fanime was supposedly so horrible.  I always spend a ton of time in video programming rooms, mainly the nostalgia rooms (I tend to enjoy old school stuff more and I always find more old school stuff to catch up on), and 2013 was no exception.  Sunday morning I was watching a favorite of mine, Armored Trooper VOTOMs.  Got there nice and early that morning and although there were only two viewers in the room other than my girlfriend and myself, I settled in to VOTOMS' special brand of hard science fiction.

About halfway though the screening at 7am there was a staff change in the video room.  The staffer who took over was in a word: awesome.  Very cool to talk with about old school anime, offered to turn the volume up if the bass from the marathon room was overpowering through the wall (which it wasn't), came over and apologized after a technical issue getting Patlabor to play; he was just an incredible person and one of the best staffers I have ever met at any convention.  I believe he was also staffing later during Fatal Fury 2 and Iria: Zeriam the Animation.  Would talk to people peeking in about what they were screening, later on when the room was fuller he would make jokes at just the right time during the films, and completely understood the vibe that a nostalgia room should have.  That Sunday morning and evening made the issues with registration on Thursday and Friday melt away in my mind - it was that enjoyable of an experience.  I wish I would have asked him his name (my one regret that year) to make sure he received the commendation he deserved.

^ Sadly (and rather regrettably) I didn't start attending Fanime until the yearly theme became less and less of a focus. That said, I'm glad that the tradition is upheld.  I stepped away from cons (outside of arcade and pinball collector shows) until 2012 - and as I said, I really regret that.
< I think everyone's sewing machine is feeling the crunch.
> Still up finishing the last part of this shirt. 3 cosplays this year - Sugo Corporation pit crew from Future GPX Cyber Formula, Tetsu-chan and a shinkansen wearing salaryman (used in the commercials) from Densha de Go!, and Taizo Hori and Masuyo Tobi from Dig Dug / Baraduke / Mr. Driller / Namco X Capcom again from last year.

^ New copy of the Cyber Formula DVD boxset as the last two discs have finally bitrotted themselves into oblivion... at least that WAS to be an upcoming purchase until I found a sealed new old stock Cyber Formula DVD boxset at swap meet tonight for $30.  Woohoo!  I love cracking open a sealed 10+ year old anime DVD, smells like... Suncoast.

^ Saturday morning I was wearing my Densha de Go! E3 Series Shinkansen SD train suit. I entered an elevator on the street level of the convention center and as the door was closing I hear a group of Fanime attendees say "Train in the elevator!" from a distance. My general reach is limited with the train around my waist so I wasn't able to punch the door open button. Instead I gave them a Japan Railways salute and as the elevator doors slid closed the two or three attendees at the other end of the hallway did the same.  Outstanding convention year all around but that's what I'll remember most.
< Recovering from con.
> Laundry today then preparing for end-of-con prop inspection and making a repair list.

^ Well I'm only 33 but if I could say something it would be to enjoy every moment you can experience, even the ones that suck ass. That's what makes people who they are.  Life's about opportunities and choices - everything else should just be enjoyed.  :)
< Is making some decisions.
> In response to above, yeah I've been really starting to get new cosplay underway.  I've been "location scouting" off and on for a couple months (which basically means taking screen captures and building design sheets).  My girlfriend and I have been deconstructing and redrafting patterns and coming up with some construction gameplans.  No big props this time, which I'm thankful because I don't have the space in my apartment for something like another bullet train.
