Ok. I've absconded with Giga's laptop to try and get some pics uploaded and such.
Thursday nights alcohol debauchery didn't do well for our sleep and I'm afraid that Giga and I didn't make it to the movie on Friday. Sleep was the much preferred option.
It amazes me how this silly world of toys is really sick for no other reason than "because it can be".
On the whole, I'm a board lurker and rarely ever comment. Hell. That's what I have this site for.
But there are these strange sick animosities between these different kinds of people who collected frigg'n toys. Maybe it is because I'm on the older side of the spectrum here. I'm not quite sure.
I'm told that most of these groups of people I'm seeing are all from different cliques of message boards and such and that so and so hates this person and blah blah blah. It is all quite amusing.
I'd have to say that if you are inherently anti-social and do not live on TF message boards than Botcon on the whole is probably not for you.
I'm lucky to have found a few of the more absurd and I suppose what I'd call "non-affliated" people to hang around with. Wit helps too.
Last night a ton of football jocks and assorted jockish guys arrived at the hotel so I'm assuming they are here for the U of Kentucky football game. I sat at a table next to many of them while near the bar and talk about your culture clash.
On one side you had very loud poorly dressed drinking jocks and on the other side you had mostly load poorly dressed geeks. The geeks seemed to be oblivious to the jocks but the opposite was not true. It was like high school all over again. If they could have, the jocks would have isolated the weakest geeks and totally picked on them. They did so in their discussions that much is for certain.
Some more photos are up at Flickr. More later.
*ugh* A guy just walked by me in that Megatron club shirt I totally loathe. I think that's my que to skeddable and go purge myself. This is the second one I've seen this morning.
Unclean! Unclean! Unclean!
