Botcon 2010

I have finally gotten around to posting the gallery for Botcon 2010 on Orlando, Florida. Maybe sometime I’ll get to doing the gallery for 2009. Above you can see the obligatory group photo. Unfortunately, it was done very impromptu as Ernie and Rubin were trying to leave, so we couldn’t find Sam nor Robert in time to be in the photo.

There was lots to see this year. I took plenty of pictures of the display cases for upcoming product, the Transformers Hall of Fame and some random rare items found at various dealer booths. The image above is me holding one of the rarest items that was released at retail exclusively in Japan. That one, in particular, was on sale for US$1,000. Most of you don’t care about that though, so here is a picture of Sam ironing his shirt.

Next year will be back in Pasadena. Hopefully it won’t be quite so humid out.

Surprise! I'm 29.

This post has been saved as a draft for almost a year now. Oops! Thank goodness I cut my hair, though!

I’m still a little shellshocked from the surprise weeks later. I was truly touched at both the number of people that came out and how well kept a secret this turned out to be.

Wishlist kind of updated

I updated my wishlist at the request of some friends. Ignore the ‘Older Stuff’ section. I need to clean that up.

Most of the update was me crossing things out that I had bought myself over the past year. I didn’t really add that much either. There’s just not a lot I’m looking for right now that I can think of off the top of my head, except maybe a TV that doesn’t give me eyestrain.

I seem to be a lot more interested these days in things I want to achieve, rather than things I want to acquire. I suppose thats a good thing.

I will add that between my apartment, lack of car, work and self-imposed responsibilities, I haven’t had much time to hang out with friends, which is pretty disappointing. Hopefully, we can remedy that before the summer is out.
