    I just wanted to share a few.

    - Drew Eiden. Seriously. Anything involving this guy was ultimately hilarious. He and I got interviewed by Paramount and the lady asked us for our agents contact info. Sadly, our agent was only Boombox's face, as my business card showed. But we gave it to her anyways. Drew Eiden wins BotCon 2007, hands down.

    - The Awards Party. The only person dancing to the 80's cover band was this girl Vickie from Hasbro. So, in a fit of courage, hilarity, and a little bit of alcohol, Drew and I walked up to the dance floor and started it up, getting a ton of people involved (Shin-Gouki, Buzzbeak, DeeFuzz, Hiro Prime, Optimus Scourge, etc) and it just went crazy. I have a video I will upload to YouTube of Drew doing the lawnmower. Also from the Awards party, the moment of silence to Shaun and Bill, followed with a large "EYYYY!" from the 2005 crew. And when Seibertron won their Best Resource award, they cheered pretty loud ... only to be dwarfed when we won Best Design award. And Colin ran up on stage with the TFW2005 Board (literally) and kept thrusting it in the air ... great times.

    - Saturday night. The entire TFW2005 crew (seriously) at the bar. Soon followed by the Hasbro and TFCC crew. Soon followed by the special guests from TFCC. And then Seibertron's crew showed up. We had probably 300 people total in that bar packed inside and out, and it's not a big bar by any means. Super_Megatron, FreshDebesh, and Twin Twist shouting out "YOU GOT THE TOUCH!" to Stan Bush, followed by TWO "EYYYYY"s!

    - Sunday night's debauchery in the hotel room. Involving defacing hotel property, pimping in the hotel robe in the front of the hotel, traveling semi-tipsy to 7-11 to buy various crap and somehow managing to lose RHansen from the trip there to the trip back (Seibertron and Josh were at a stop light and we talked for a bit).

    Good, good, good times.

    Going down Mount Washington and going off an overhang and skinning my rocker panels in my car.

    Hearing my brother go: "We're in New England... I have yet to see a single damn "Majestic Moose!"

    Seeing Twin Twist and the crew... and being told "Dude.. we couldn't recognize you without the beard!"

    Hanging out with MegaMus, Liokaiser, and Gen 1 Fan.... talking about a sanctioned parts night next year... and realizing I need a Transmanual BADLY.

    Meeting David Kaye.. .and not thinking to get him to do my voicemail, but getting his sig on my badge.

    Quick talk with Eric from Designs, and shaking his hand.

    Jamming out with Rob Orci, and getting free snikers and beer and his email.

    Apparently becoming a Marine Recruit in the span of the 3d Display class... my new Nickname is HOSS! Whoorah!

    Shin in one of his rants in the movie line.. spitting pop-corn on everyone. Good times. :) 

    Vangelus: "I WILL NOT ANSWER THE QUESTION!"

    2005 winning Prelims!

    Running into Megaprime EVERYWHERE I was going... thinking: "Who the hell is that guy.. He looks familiar... I hope he doesn't think I'm stalking him."

    Getting stuck with the Allsparkers at every event for the first day or so...

    Sooo many memories.. Wish more was with everyone else. Bradders and Boardwise, you guys made the end of the con AWESOME. Thanks to you guys, and everyone else! I can't wait till next year... and Bimmah.. First round or so are on me!

    :lol  Forgot the Growler jugs, or the attempt to buy more on Sunday.

    "Why did she pee?" and "Does it taste like chocolate cookies?"

    And the fact I thought ATL was puking that night but it was just Draven and his flem.

    Fuck aye! I think making myself hoarse by singing along to Stan Bush with Pete and Vangelus and the barrage of "Ayyyyy!'s on saturday night will stay with me a looong time.

    Explaining my Stig T-shirt to about 15 people on the first day at the con was a laugh as well, and asking for all my drinks at the bars in the most extreme Welsh accent I could muster

    Isn't it! :)

    I'm going to have to think of a way of getting you guys back for that.

    Oh and for people who don't know the whole 'growler' thing, here's a short video that might help explain it, might not be work safe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64Yz8z075nY

    DEFINITIVE WIN. :lol 

    Drew, myself and some random serious TF dude in the elevators trying to get back to our rooms on the very very drunk friday night.
    Just as we hit Drew's floor, he throws the Boombox shirt over his head, drops down to his hands and knees and shouts out "Aaron Archer bought me too many drinks!" and then RUNS out of the elevator.
    I nearly pissed myself laughing as random TF guy slowly slithered out of the elevator, eyes rolling "WTF CRAZY PEOPLE" :lol

    Standing around talking to Chris and Andy when all of a sudden I'm told "uh-oh!" and I just froze and got humped by Dan. Then this quote was busted out:

    Friday night's debauchery period was a great time. Having Hasbro and FP peeps worried that you're drinking too much. Gettin' told if you'll drink a glass of water before you have another beer you'll get a kiss from Vicki of the Design team. Having to have the not-able-to-drink Ren hold your beer so they won't take it away from you. Getting the glass of water and then having the whole TFW crew chant "chug chug chug!" Having Bimma photograph the smooch, then watching everyone get so drunk they can barely stand. Eyyy ing so much that people who have no clue what's goin' on start saying it with you. oh, two words: "Jager Bombs"

    Getting dry humped by SMEGs first thing before anything else did it for me. And he didn't even snuggle after.

    I will be writing a memoire soon. I will title it:
