FISH!We had fish fry yesterday with a whole bunch of people after putting lights on this isolated tree on the seven mile bridge. Well, as they brought out the giant ass tray of fish, I of course shouted, "FISH!" but no one seemed to get my reference.
On a related note, I put lights on this 30 ft tree in the middle of the old abandoned 7 mile bridge down here in the Florida Keys. This thing is massive at this point and we scaled the side of the bridge to construct lights around it.
All Grown UpSo I am now convinced that I am a full fledged grown up.
I am paying my own phone bill :( I now pay auto insurance :( I have a car in my own name :) I am working a full time job I am working a second part time job And with all this I'm still living with my parent
If I didn't know any better, the next step will be me getting my own place. You know life, I did want to go back to college at some point.
Oh well, At least I'm still finding time for my online communities and friends. You all help me keep my inner child!
I know I'm probably a terrible person for delaying this for five days but I got it done at least, yeah. On with the show!
So day three I woke up terribly exhausted after that mixer, though incredibly fun. My day started at 6 am for the SloMo shoot; we got to throw water balloons at Gav and Dan, though I'm pretty sure I just hit the person in front of me... twice.
After that it was on to RTX to spend my last day in the convention with people I relate to. This day I spent pretty much all of it line hopping the special guests signing with some amazing people I met. (Sorry I don't remember your names but hopefully I can find you on here one day). Sean, Rebecca, Jack Lee, Shannon, Dan, Nico, Yomary, Jen Brown, and Lee Eddy. Oh yeah, and high fived by Michael like 3 times from the same line.
It was fun, we sat there and watched the streaming panels while we waited, watched RWBY probably like 30 times, I thing I have the Black and Yellow trailers memorized now. By the end of that I walked around a little more, bought one or two more things, and back to my hotel to crash.
I woke up the next day for an early walk actually. Made it to the Capitol and took pictures, went in the little gift shop cause, why the hell not, and walked home regretting the feet pain. And then it started to rain. I know Austin, I'll miss you too, the weekend shouldn't have ended just yet.
As an awkward side story; I was watching Game of Thrones on the flight home (got through a season and a half on the round trip) and I cannot tell you how paranoid I got of the people next to me when there was a nude or sex scene. Worst part was when I was in the middle seat, an old lady next to me, and teen on the other. I could do nothing to hide it from them.
Anywho, I'll be uploading pictures soon enough, probably this weekend. Look forward to seeing what I'm going to do with all my signed RT playing cards, I know I'm excited for it.
Something I realized I didn't do, was take pictures with the awesome people I met. I'll have to be sure to do it next year. For the people I added from RTX, you were amazing, sorry I didn't get a picture with you, and I hope to see you all next you.
RTX Day #2Okay. Wow. My feet are killing me. The mixer tonight was awesome. Made some awesome new friends tonight and had a good laugh with some new ones. I know I won't have a voice tomorrow s sorry if I'm talking even less or have a frowny face throughout the day; I'm not ad or upset, just crippled to a point.
I managed to get a lot more signatures today (like 5 or 6). Woo! I also got to have lengthy chats with them this time too :) Only a few more to go.
I managed two panels today; Trocadero Music and Slo Mo Guys. I also got a replacement for the Trocadero hat I left at the airport last year. And I got to see some hilarious and amazing unseen clips from Gav and Dan. Poor Gavin got embarrassed so badly on stage today, twice from what I hear.
MOAR STUFF! I bought more stuff today, mostly from Button Mash Productions. A few prints (BobaDash!) and of course got a drawing done by Luke (I'll post it later when I have a scanner).
Like I said earlier earlier I met a lot of cool people day. Added a few people on the site, exchanged numbers, helped people with Twitter (didn't think I'd end up doing that). But it was wonderful to meet you all and I look forward to seeing or speaking with you again.
Hopefully I'll see a few of you bright and early at the shoot tomorrow morning!
RTX Day #1First day of RTX was today. I came in for the fireworks Thursday night and watched them from P. Terry's Burger Stand with some friends I made last year. I was nice to see them again, even if every conversation somehow made it's way to dicks.
I got in too late Thursday though for registration so I had to do it Friday morning. That ended up taking two and a half hours. Yikes! But by the time I got my badge the doors opened and I was in!
The first thing I did was jump in the Achievement Hunter autograph line to get signatures from Geoff, Ryan, Ray, and Jack. We got Rooster Teeth playing cards with our bag and some of them had the staff's faces, so my plan was to get all of those signed and I'm about 1/4 of the way there for this day. U fortunately Ryan didn't have a card so I got him to sign the ace of spades because he's an ace in my book.
After that I wandered the floor, met Mega64 again, no chest signing this time though (I know, sad right), met a few cool people, watched the center stage, did another round on the booths, bought LOADS of stuff. I'm going to be broke by the end of this trip.
I actually only managed one panel, the RWBY panel but was one of the later persons to join so I missed the episode because I thought it would only play there. Apparently it was also at the center stage. But the Q&A was still awesome.
It was nice getting to see everyone again, even if I didn't talk to them because I was too speechless, but I look forward to actually speaking to them soon. Update for RTX Day #2 to come later tonight after the mixer.
