    Does it not seem like botcon is only a little over 2 weeks away? I went to Target/TRU yesterday and was like oh man I want to buy everything but I want to wait for Botcon... then I realized... wait... that's like two weeks from now!

    Last year I didn't even sign up until a month before the convention so maybe it was because I had just signed up so it was fresh in my mind compared to when I registered this year what... 3 months ago?

    Nonetheless... Botcon is under 20 days away and that is just frigteningly awesome.

    It feels odd having it so close because I started planning as soon as they announced the date and I have gotten use to it being something that isn’t happening for a long time.

    Yup. Not much time left and still so much to do....

    Anyway, I hope you aren't waiting to buy those same toys you see at Target AT Botcon. I can't imagine that current off-the-shelf toys will be cheaper... They'll probably be quite a bit more expensive there.

    Buy the toys at Botcon that you can't easily get elsewhere...

    I've had the stress and panic of exams recently to take my mind off it, however they are now passed and it's only a few short weeks away.

    Which also means it's only a few short weeks till my neice/nephew's due date. That has me more scared/excited.

    Oh yeah... totally... I don't think I've ever bought something that was currently in stores at the time of a Botcon at a Botcon... I probably came the closest when I saw the RiD Spychangers at BC 2001. If I'm getting anything at Botcon its the Japanese TF's without the hassle (and wait) of shipping fees haha


    oh and congrats Boardwise

    You're telling me it's close, I gotta figure out how to take enough clothes and things while leaving craploads of room in my case for toys!

    I still have about 3 minutes of Redemption 2 to render, and most of the score to write. Something tells me it's not going to be totally finished in time...

    Actually last year on Sunday, one of the great "deals" was Alt. Meister. Some dealers were selling him MISB for $10.

    I am normally really feeling it when there is only 2 weeks or so to go, but I have been so busy that the full blown excitement hasn't hit me yet.

    I am almost done with my annual pre-Botcon screening of the entire run of G1, but it looks like I wont be able to cram BW and BM in by the time the convention rolls around.

    I usually have a huge list typed up of stuff that I am looking for, but I am not as concerned this year. I think this year I am solely going to be a part of this awesome convention, drink, rep the site, drink, and probably drink.

    I am starting to get really excited about going to my first Botcon. I guess I picked a good one to start out with. I am also looking forward to meeting all of the good people from this site and having a few (or more than likely more than) drinks.

    You can do it! Just:

    Do not sleep.
    Drink one Red Bull every 30 minutes.
    Wash each Red Bull down with a Mountain Dew.
    Do not eat food.

    There! Redemption should be done in 2 days! :)

    Time's still in an oddball slow-mo cycle for me. I'm waiting for everything to catch up and I'll have 2 hours to pack and get to the airport.
