PAX 08: The Greatest Weekend of My Life

WARNING: This blog is definitely graphic heavy. :D

Alright, so like a lot of you I just had the best weekend of my entire life. It was the first time I'd gotten to meet so many of you fellow Dtoiders that I've been wanting to meet for so long now. Everyone was so amazing and I can't get over how much I love you guys and didn't want it to end. Though thankfully it's the internet so we'll see each other around. :P

First I'll get the obligatory swag posting over with:

My Haul:

Pink Godzilla Goodies

El Rio Madre's Haul (a.k.a. My mom :P )

She's a rockin' Pac-Man fan, what can I say?

I have tons more pictures in the gallery here as well, so feel free to take a look.

Thankfully I got to get quite a few pictures with people, but unfortunately forgot to nab some with a couple of you.. *cough* Chad *cough* Dyson *cough* so I think I might have to magically come find you again sometime. And Dyson, I'm totally renting you out so you can give me another amazing hug to realign my spine.

I got the chance to give out quite a few presents at the event as well and I'm so glad everyone liked them. I wish I could have done one for everyone but I'm only one person you know. ;P

Everyone seemed to really enjoy their hats and I totally got a kick out of seeing you guys running around in them. It was so amazing!

Spot what's awesome about this picture! :D

My favorite cosplay of the show @[email protected] (Other than Fruit Fucker of course :D )

Man all of you were just so freaking fantastic and some I got to spend more time with than others and I apologize if I didn't get to talk to you too much but with so many people I easily get sidetracked.

To my main crew: Ceark, Suff0cat, Taumpy, Frobose (who better have a Dtoid name by now!) you guys are the best. I loved every minute of hanging out with you guys and wouldn't give it up for the world. I so seriously wanted to sneak into someone's suitcase and go back with them so the fun didn't have to end. I mean seriously, Mega Man 2 until 6:30 am. Fucking amazing!!!

I was so glad we got to chill at the concerts and hang out. It was a blast!

All of us! :D

So thanks again to everyone who helped me have the best weekend of my life. I love you guys so much it's ridiculous and it's amazing to have a place to be myself.

Niero: words cannot express how thankful I am for everything you've done for us and it was the best pleasure of my life to finally get to meet you. Thanks to you I finally have friends that I can do everything from just sitting and chatting or run around a massive convention with or even play video games with. It's the one thing I'd never really had in my life until Destructoid and I'll never be able to thank you enough.

<3's everyone! See you next year!

P.S. I ALMOST FORGOT! Me, Suff0cat and Taumpytears went in together for a gift for Chad's birthday (even though it's early) and I got some video of him opening. Best day ever!
