Eh most the people I've ran into up here go "Anime? Uhhhhh, is that like, saturday morning cartoons? Duuuuuude, I love cartoons. Cartoons and beeeeer" Which makes me wonder what's in the water.

Yeash that's abit close. I prefer stuff to be settled months in advance. I think about five weeks was the least amount of time I've had rooms and people figured out before a Con.

Hmm wonder if the St. Claires TV's in the room can be hooked up to a console...Wii or something.

XD  Yeah, I know what you mean.  That's why I like playing piano for NCRT musicals: a good deal of the people I've met through the theatre actually know what anime is, so I can have a decent anime-based conversation with them.  (It's the same thing with certain video games.)

Heh, seriously. DX  Apparently the reason he couldn't go was because he "didn't have any money."  ...And he decided to tell his sister (my friend) that little important fact mere hours after the Online Housing Center closed permanently.  Oi. >_<;;  It wasn't like it was horribly difficult to call up the hotel by phone and cancel the extra room, but geez...  (I'm just glad there wasn't any extra fee for cancelling so close to the con.  Whew!)

Yeah.  I like plans in advance. XD

Ah, is that where you're staying this year?  Nice.  (My friends and I are staying at the Marriott again this year. <3)  That's a good question; I would hope so!  I mean, it's not like they're required to be compatible with a home game console, but it'd still be neat. :3  (My friends and I never had any room to pack a console in past years.  God we pack so much crap. XD;;  ...In any case, we were rarely in the room at all during the con anyway.  Hehe.)

What games do you like to play? :3

Hmm think the only person I've bumped into that was interested in talking about anime with me was at Borders in the Manga section. (of course, where else right?)

Yeah....Money is a must at a con. I mean seriously you can just eat ramen, and other instant soup things via the coffee maker. (Or a mini rice cooker like I've known some people to bring) It is nice to go out with friends to the pub down the ways, or Johnny Rockets...Ooo the chicago pizza place is nom! Anyway yeah. Point is money = good times. Food, drink...buying stuff at con...paying for the room. Very important cause I wouldn't put it past some folks to room up then claim they'll have the money for their part of the room like on sat of the con, and then 'forget' to pay once their back home.

Yep, it's the first time I'll be returning to a hotel at Fanime. I keep ending up in different hotels. (Marriott, St. Clair, Fairmont...which the rooms weren't all that nice for such a pricey place. Etc.) The hotel where Yaoicon is held I can hook my laptop to their TVs, but that tends to be late at night when things are sorta dead...Or when you just bought a new box set that you JUST have to watch _now_. Heh we tend to pack a good amount also, but a Wii is tiny enough it shouldn't be to hard.

I don't have a Wii yet, but I could by then. I've been debating for months on which system to get. I'm rather picky and take a long time to get such things. I think I compared laptops for about four months before I finally bought one. Wii just seems like it would be good for Room stuffs at cons.

As far as games I enjoy various series; Final Fantasy,  Mario Kart, Resident Evil, Rock Band, Mortal Kombat, Soul Caliber, Kingdom Hearts, Bloody Roar, Halo, Tekken, Dynasty Warriors, Devil May Cry, Grand Theft Auto...Ummm *Thinks* Got a Naruto game on PSP that's fun too. I tend to Role-Play (Pen&Paper sort, just online) more then play video games.

How about you? What games you like, or anime/manga series?  *Notes your Sig* Other then Gundam Wing.

I want to go up to Humboldt  :)   A couple of my friends lived up there a while (and some of their friends still do).  I heard it's pretty cool place (with awesome food because it's such a "munchie-prone-county"  lol).

Aeredon > You don't count *Thbbbbbbbbbbt* Should posted sooner, like last year *Chuckles*


Raymei> Uhhh theres like 3 or 4 places I can think of off the top of my head that stand out as "good eats". Dunno about places for just munchies though *C* I think that's what Dominos is for, cheap pizza that you don't care how it taste.

I just had to laugh. Is Humboldt part of the "emerald triangle"?  I just heard that ummm... that the "munchie" producing industry is just behind the logging industry up there.

Anyways, unfortunately Ukiah is as far as I've gotten, so haven't had a chance to get out to Humboldt yet.  Maybe someday.

Welcome back *Chuckles* Then it's your turn to answer your earlier Q, I think...When you have the time of course.

Yep it is, and yeah it wouldn't be surprising.
The redwoods and coast is pretty, that's about all I can say about it up here without going into a rant.
I can't even have high speed net without spending hundreds on Satellite stuffs :(
Stupid dial up...Then again I live out in the middle of no where so...

Then it's your turn to answer your earlier Q, I think...When you have the time of course.

Ah yes, that's right! XD  Where were we?  *checks*  Oh yeah, games and anime. ;D

Ah, I like Resident Evil and the Soul Caliber series, too.  (Actually, my sister plays more RE than me; I tend to watch most of the time and annoy her by pointing out obvious tips. XD;;  But I've played it before!)  Mm... aw yeah, Rock Band kicks so much ass. <3  My sis and I got it for Christmas this past year and we're totally hooked on it.  Two of my friends have it, too, so whenever we can we get together and play for HOURS. 8D  My voice is always sore when we're done.  (I'm always the lead vocalist. XD  But I do enjoy the guitar and drums when I get to play on them.)

Hmm, what else...  Oh yeah, I really like the Fire Emblem game series. :3  That, and other tactical role-playing type games.  I played FE: Path of Radiance and just got hooked.  They're so fun!  Other than FE, I like the Super Smash Bros. games, Dance Dance Revolution, Tales of Symphonia, and the Pokemon game series from time to time.  There are others, but I can't think of them by name at the moment. XD;;  (There are plenty of games that I'd LIKE to play, but don't have the system for.  Games like Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid, and Galerians, for example.  Actually... wait, yeah, they pretty much remade the first MGS for the GameCube.  Yup.  I still need to borrow it from my friend who has it. XD  YAY.)

As far as anime and manga go, I enjoy various series.  Aside from Gundam Wing, some of the anime series I like are Excel Saga, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop, Furi Kuri, Comic Party, and Papuwa.  Manga-wise, some of the series I like are Loveless, Ouran High School Host Club, Di Gi Charat, Fruits Basket, and Yu-Gi-Oh.  (YGO was considerably a better manga, since they didn't completely butcher it like they did the anime. DX  It's actually a relatively good series if you look at the original Japanese version.)

*takes breath*  ...Yeah. XD  That's what I got.

I know you told me the games you liked, but how about anime/manga for you?  What are some of your favorites? :3

Contrary to popular belief, I still think the female gamer is a mythical creature ;)

Until I meet you in person at Fanime, your technically a figment of my wild imaginations. :P

Or have an epic gaming party someday and I'll be tempted in randomly showing up in Northern California.

Lol. ;D  Then we'll just have to meet at Fanime, won't we? XD  (When I'm dressed as Duo Maxwell, I'll be sure to carry around some Mountain Dew or something.  That way you can't miss me. XP)

That, or I guess I might just HAVE to host an epic gaming party up here. 8D

It's because the Gundams don't run on a nuclear core like everyone thinks, they on fortified Mountain Dew.  Mountain Dew should run everything and everyone.

Lol, but of course!  Moutain Dew is Duo Maxwell-approved! ;D

...I just pictured Wufei shouting, "Do the Dew!" with his trademark I'll-kick-your-pansy-ass voice.  Good GOD, I am obsessed. XD
