PAX pix, chronicling my trip


On Monday, our numbers were dwindling. This was taken just before Lib and I headed to the airport. A few of us were at Gameworks, and then they went to the Cheesecake Factory for one more dinner.

Those are pretty much all of the photos I have, but I just want to give shoutouts to everybody who made my PAX weekend extra special.

Aerox: Thanks for setting up the dinner at FareStart. I am sure I'll see you real soon.
Knives: You are one of the most jovial people I know. We'll have some parties here in L.A. on a Saturday so you can come up again.
keener: I'm so glad to have finally met you. You're one of the coolest people around. We have to hang out again soon.
Tactix: It's really great to meet up with somebody who loves Rock Band as much as I do. Can't wait to hang out again.
GHost: You are SO COOL in person. Good luck with your endeavors in Africa, and thanks again for my Dtoid card.
naia/Zero: You two are adorable. Double date table > all others.
Samit: I'm really jealous that you correcting people's grammar is endearing. You were great to talk to. Maybe consider Caltech for grad school?
Necros: HEY! I'm glad you didn't fail on the Rock Band 2 stage. That would have been embarassing.
Dale: You're hilarious as always. I never realized you were so old though! It's gotta be the happa genes.
Liz: Your being here in America is amazing. You and Glen had better get married so you can stay here forever.
Colette: You always seem so happy to see me. I hope you two are doing all right in the storms.
Chad: One of the best moments of the weekend was when you broke into song at the panel. If you made a podcast of you singing Disney songs, I'd subscribe.
Niero: Your generosity is unparalleled. I can't thank you enough for everything you've put together. Without you, the weekend would not have been nearly as huge as it was.
Lib: You get the most thanks of all. I'm so happy to have a girlfriend who not only tolerates my ridiculous hobby, but embraces it and will come with me on a 1500 mile trip just to hang out with people who I met on the Internet. I'm so lucky to have you.

Everybody else: I wanted to say this at one of the nights at the bar, but I didn't want to sound like a drunk asshole. I love you people. I don't say that lightly, but I love you like I love my college roommates, and like I love the brothers I never had. I couldn't ask for a better community to be a part of.
