  1. Place : Days Inn Number of People in Room : 4 (2 double-bed room) Hotel Staff: Very polite. The dude with the moustache and flat top haircut (manager perhaps?) was VERY friendly and helpful. They also were nice enough to let me check-in early. Check-in time there is 3pm. I got there at 1pm and had no problems. Walk to Otakon: Not far at all.. 2 or 3 minutes depending on traffic and how slow people in front of you are walking. The good : Room was clean, free wi-fi was nice. The bartender in the hotel bar was awesome. I had breakfast in the restaurant a couple of mornings and t
  2. I prefer the lower rate. I'm in a position that I could afford the entire room myself, though, so even if I don't get others into the room it's not a hardship. Having people come along is always fun, of course, but if I can't get others to go along then that's how things go.
  3. I'm gofering this year so I'm not positive if I'll be waiting in a line (in the classical sense at any rate). Out of curiousity, to the people who DO line up ridiculously early -- is there any reason that you do that? Apart from the obvious "bragging rights" (??) of being one of the first through the door?
  4. Depends. If I only have to go a floor or two, I take the stairs. Any more then that, I take the elevator.
  5. I'd been a fan of anime since the early 90s.. I forget what year my friend Sashi introduced me to it -- probably 1991 or 1992. I'd never heard of conventions, though, until 1998 when my friend Dave invited me to go with him to Otakon in '98. I couldn't go that year but it looked like awesome fun so I vowed to go in '99. Well, '99 rolled around and I went. It WAS awesome fun!! I couldn't go in 2000 because I'd just started a new job and couldn't get the time off.. but I've been to every Otakon since then. I'll probably continue to go as long as I can.. or as long as Otakon exists.
  6. I can't say that I remember ever being able to wear anything smaller then a "Medium" of anything. That aside, as far as size stuff goes, the only thing that annoys me is that if I want to buy pants, I need to buy them online any more. I can't buy them at a department store because they tend to only stock ONE pair in my size and it's usually purchased right away. Yet, I can't shop at "big and tall" stores because that size is too small for them. The only store locally that tends to stock the pants size that I need is Wal*Mart. I don't like how they fit, though, and the pockets tend
  7. Most years in the past, my friend Steve and I would leave the con anywhere between 10pm and midnight and head back to the hotel room where we'd play video games or watch a movie until about 2am then get to sleep. Last year, Steve didn't go.. I headed back to the hotel bar and sucked down Bombay Sapphire Martinis while talking with other folks staying in the hotel.. that was a nice way to wind down after a busy day. THough one of the days I met up with some of the Baltimore locals at a local pub and had some drinks and great chats there. This year? Who knows. I'm actually staying w
  8. I play Pokemon Diamond and will be bringing it to Otakon.
  9. Micky Dolenz was the best Monkee. Hands down. I remember loving "The Electric Company" as a kid. That's probably the earliest show that I remember being my favorite. I DO remember watching Sesame Street as well but I don't remember if it was a favorite or if I just enjoyed it because.. well.. what kid doesn't like Sesame St.. seriously.. I remember that I used to love watching "Tom and Jerry" reruns as well. They were pretty much a staple morning cartoon around the house. ^^ That would probably have been my first favorite animated show.. followed by GI Joe and then probably Voltron.
  10. Wow. Otakon is only 3 and a half weeks away. O.o .. I thought it was longer. Anyhow, apart from finding people to fill the remaing spots in my hotel room, nothing other then what I usually do week-to-week. OH.. I'm deciding what movies to encode to my iPod for any down-time that I have as well.
  11. Last year there was sort of an "older otaku/come hang with the locals" meetup at one of the local bars. Not sure if the same people are doing it again, but that was fun.. even though I was the only non-local to show up. Regardless, I certainly wouldn't mind meeting up. Bar is fine with me, or a restaurant, or whatever. I'm open to pretty much anything.
  12. *waves* Me! Me! Though I'm doing the gofer thing this year so I doubt I'll be doing much photography. It's been fun in the past though.
