    So I'm just finished eating my lunch here at work and Thought that Botcon is just over a month away. I got to thinking about all the stuff I got to do with in the last month.
    1)Start a inventory of the the toys I'm going to take to sale this year.
    2)Come up with the prices for those toys.
    3) Pack the toys into my vechile that I'm going to take.
    4) Pack the over night bags.
    5) Pack the cooler for the raod trip.

    Plus get all the small things taken care of. Any one else have a large list of stuff they got to get done in time for botcon

    I've almost got the cash stockpile ready. I hate hitting up ATMs when I can't be on my network. Something about getting dinged 8 bucks or more total and only being able to get 200 at a time.

    Not much left for me except to play the waiting game. My roomies have LONG since paid me their share. I have 1 roomie's cell number and the other will be hanging with that roomie till I arrive.

    My passport doesn't expire till July 23rd...although it would been nice if I could've simply used my Driver's License for entrance into your fine country. Money wise I'm just waiting till the exchange rate's favorable where I don't end up losing money. And my VISA's pretty much clean and ready in case I come out of my safe zone to enjoy a beer...or even treat my roomies to a beer or 2 as a thank you

    I'm just waiting till I recieve my papers from FP in the mail :) 

    Overall, BotCon 2007 will be THE year to go...The lines will be ungodly. But as long as the show does well I can deal with it. Who knows I might get stuck in line with a cute female fan to pass the time ;)

    Look into transportation between airport and hotel.
    Figure out the most recent flight schedule.
    Figure out how this whole confirming the flight back works.
    Look into what's around for food (don't want to go for the expensive hotel food every day)
    Work out last details for the hotel reservations with roomie.
    Find the best way for transporting HoS Bumblebee.
    Decide on how much money to take with me.
    Anything else I haven't thought of yet.
    Get USD and/or traveller's cheques.

    I still need to resever a rental car and start saving up my money for my hotel room and spending money and food, other than that just trying to play the waiting game which I've never been good at.

    Dude, you have to get drunk some time. Just once for the experience. If you fear a hang over then do it early in the evening and when you get the heat on then stop and start drinking water so you have time to dry out before you go to sleep and you’ll be fine. I can even help you pick some drinks that are easy to go down.

    Other wise I’m getting board with all the “I might maybe consider the possibility of trying a beer.” And if you’re not going to drink then just don’t drink, there’s no need to tell every one about it. I don’t like tomatoes but I don’t tell every one “I’ll go have a hamburger with you but I’m going to ask for no tomatoes.”

    Okay I'm sorry...I'm mainly just being stupid, but if it's annoying it's annoying and I'll stop :D 

    I was mainly trying to be facetious...But obviously failed

    Not drinking or not having tomatoes are 2 very different things. Nobody will mind you not getting tomatoes. I don't drink, and in my experience that's something people don't respect. So if the issue of getting something to drink arrises I mention that, know in advance how people respond, and know when I simply shouldn't be joining.

    All I have to do is book the shuttle from St. Cloud to the airport.

    I also have to get a new camera because the flash does not work on mine.

    My point was that I don't tell every one about it when ever something tomatoes related comes up. You don't want to drink that's fine with me. I'm not going to be drinking non-stop myself.
