Still needs 35 people by tomorrow 8pm EST
I really want this one to happen, otherwise I'll just be showing my friends the movie on a television. And we all know that's not as fun as a giant movie screen.
Where my north Jersey folks at?

Disappointing, tbh. I didn't even go today because I figured there would be no point.
Two years ago I found out that NYCC has a speed dating room. Last year I tried each day to get into a session, to no avail.
Since then, the company/group that organized it did away with their online pre-registration - and were just going to have it be first-come first-served.
I thought, "Hey, I'll actually have a shot of getting in this year!'
And then Wednesday night I learned that it was being run by a different group this year. One with pre-registration.
So even before my weekend began, I was set up for disappointment.
Coming as no surprise to me, I didn't get in as a standby attendee. Not once in my three attempts.
And so I didn't even go to the convention today - not if I was just going to be turned away again.
Just having friends isn't enough for me anymore.

This journal reposted from my Tumblr blog.
In my explorations of the internet, occasionally (okay rarely) I'll run across a girl who just seems to be really really cool and who is into all the same sort of stuff as me, and she's really pretty and all that jazz, and I get it into my head that MAYBE I'll finally come out of my shell for the first time in my life and try to get to know her and maybe it'll become something more than friendship and blah blah blah.
And then I find out that they're on the other side of the country and I'm just like
First it was shegeekshow (Youtube) but not only is she in Washington but she's older than me by almost a full generation.
and then it was lordofthefaps but she's in California.
I mean what the fuck do I have to do? Do I have to just move to the west coast? Like where do I go and what do I do to find a girl that I genuinely like for every reason AND who lives relatively nearby?
AND THEN HOW DO I GO ABOUT MEETING THAT GIRL IN A WAY THAT'S ENDEARING AND DOESN'T MAKE ME SOUND LIKE I'M A CREEP.

So since the 3DS XL came out, people have bought it to replace their old, normal sized 3DS. And people who do this get a $100 trade-in on the old one toward the 3DS XL. Okay, go that? Right. Moving on.
Part of the process of replacing the old 3DS with the XL is to perform a system transfer, so that any licenses purchased and downloaded through the Nintendo Shop will be moved over to the new system. Ya follow me on this?
Here's how the transfer works: By connecting both systems to WiFi networks, you may then initiate a system transfer from the old 3DS (or 'source') system to the new (or 'target') system. This process essentially formats the 'target' system and imprints the important data and licenses to the 'target' system.
So out of the goodness of my heart, when a nice lady asks for assistance in performing this transfer, I oblige by printing out the directions for her to follow. She purchases the 3DS XL. I direct her to the countertop where she can perform the transfer without obstructing other customers. I connect the old 3DS to the local WiFi network to prepare it for the transfer. I then let her do her thing and follow the directions.
Now, before all this even happened, she asked about the 3DS Ambassador program, and how it would be affected by the transfer. I look it up and find that it would work without a hitch.
So I leave to continue working with other customers as she sets up an initiates the transfer from the old 3DS to the 3DS XL.
Here's where it gets fun/excruciatingly fucking frustrating.
SHE FUCKING DID IT BACKWARDS.
Apparently this cunt couldn't tell the difference between the 'SOURCE' and the 'TARGET' systems, and initiated the transfer in the wrong goddamn direction.
So now, because she fucked up, her 9 year-old son is now without his 3DS Ambassador games. Because she transferred the data from a brand new 3DS XL to an old 3DS.
Way to fucking go, lady. Thanks to you, no one else is going to get my help in this matter. You wanna transfer your shit? Call Nintendo and have them hold your fucking hand through the whole thing, because I'm not gonna participate in your goddamn stupidity.
