Why do Monday's Get Here So Fast?

Well, that weekend blew right past me without so much as a "by your leave." Of course, I was busy. First I had to strip off all of my beautiful tinting on my truck. Apparently, the "Great" state of Mississippi doesn't allow its populace to have tinting below a 26. Mine was merely 14.

After a sliced finger from the razor blades I was using, I got it all off and then pouted to my beloved wife. At which point she reminded me that I still had to mow and trim the backyard.

Glee.

The reason my chores were stacked on top of one another like that was because Sunday I went to CoastCon down in Biloxi. I went with the Mandalorians and the 501st (though I'm not a member of the 501st) and had a grand time.

There was a Vader, an Anakin Skywalker, a Mando whose armor was decorated in Saints colors, and the mascots for MechaCon.

Then there were the LARPers.

Anyways, I asked my buddy (who was the Vader) if I could get a copy of the pictures and he said sure, so I'll toss them up soon enough. My only real complaint about the weekend was that the Con wasn't quite busy enough on a Sunday to warrant it costing $20. By accounts, Omegacon was cheaper and had more stuff to do. Additionally, MechaCon has a much better pricing structure:

  • Friday - $15
  • Saturday - $20
  • Sunday - $10
  • All Weekend - $40
This is opposed to CoastCon's $40 for the weekend or $20 per day. And yes m'love, I do kind of want to go to MechaCon at the start of August.

Beyond that, there's not a whole lot going down in SF world at the moment. I do have a few things on the plate, as I need to blog Macross Frontier episode 2 (which I watched last night--and which I need to figure out how to take screenshots from a MKV file) and I have DEFINITELY got to write up my Revelation and Hal Spacejock 2 reviews.

As an other-wise unrelated note, one of my Star Wars friends has joined a new blog: Mommy Babble.

Anyways, that's all I got for this morning--hopefully I'll get the pics soon. :D

Hi, Kidan.

It's me, Lightsaber123/Darth Mu from TF.N. Sorry my comment has nothing to do with this particular blog post, but I'd just like you to know that I am banned from TF.N. Apparently the Mods are just too ban stick happy. I can no longer tolerate this particular trait of theirs.

So this is why I will not be applying for any unbanning.

Just giving you a head up so that You would know why I am no longer on the boards when and if you look for me.

If you are interested, you can still find me on Fanfiction.Net under the userid number 6000. I may change the username once in a while, but the userid number wouldn't.

I hope I can still submit something to you for beta'ing once in a while.

Thank you for being there.

P.S.

And no, Ying Shan Hong is not my name, it's actually a title of a song.
