It's 7:08 am. I woke up about an hr ago. These beds are HOT. Should I make tea and take it with me?
I am going to the Stage Zero First day recap and then at 8:30 am I am going to go watch AMV Hell 3. And then I dunno go to the bank? And then take a stroll through the dealer's room? Or I could go to the bank now...So I am gonna go. Leave this keyboard here cause I'll be back after a little bit because there's nothing to do this early.
okay! SO I went to the Kung Fu showing...which was like the only thing I really had on the schedule today. And it was really good! He didn't show the same stuff as he did last year this was "new" stuff and gave a little perspective on what's going on in the theater in Asia right now. And it was good.
And then I "missed a call" from home >.<
They harshed my happy.
They were calling to tell me that I was now 1k in debt! That the hotel was charging $600 and some change for the room.
And I was like...Nuh-Uh!!
And they were like WAY.
So I went down stairs to go talk to the staff. And while tripping down the stairs I tore off a 1/4 of my big toes nail. OUCH And BLOOD! EVERYWHERE! This is the worst nail tear I've ever had. it hurts but not so bad that I am limping; I am not. And I am stilling going to the Masque!
Anyways I get downstairs and the girl is all like...well the room is under Marlyin Brown...and I am like...she couldn't make it. I am the only one in the room. So she asked me if I wanted to move over to a King sized room. Yesterday during check-in there was a lady who was hoping for a double because her daughter sleeps like an octopus and flails about everywhere! So I told the girl: Sure I am willing to move. So I told her I had to go to do something but on my way down I would drop off the keys.
So that's what I'll do after I take a bath and change for the Masque.
I'm so staying at the Hilton next year!!!!
See you either later tonight...or tomorrow morning.
There was a very pronounced police presence this year….
I don't know how that makes me feel. A little jumpy. Because cops don't show up unless there's trouble. And I don't like to be places where there is trouble. Anyways while waiting in line at for the Masque I noticed at least 6 patrol cars, and strolling paired patrol men walking up and down the line.
There was a guy in front of me who had just bought a sword and a rover came by and told him that he was going to either have to put it in his room, or in his car because they wouldn't allow him into the Civic Center if he had it. And if he unsheathed it, the Cops could charge him with having a deadly weapon.
So he had to call his grandparents to come down and pick it up and take it home for him.
There was a slight disturbance in the line like 20 feet in front of us. The cops yanked some kid out of line…but I dunno what happened to him or anything. I never heard anything. There might be something on the boards though.
So the Masque was okay in starts and stops. They had some walk ons in the beginning. and two martial arts groups before the show. Then the show itself started out really slow. And then there was a pokemon skit!
This was SO EPIC!!! EVERYONE sang along and it got a standing ovation. It was great. There were a couple after that...but for the most part it was Pokemon the winner all the way as it came to comedy and what not. I kind of felt sorry for the groups after it because how do you beat this?!
With Stagecraft!!!!! And that's kinda what happened. But the judges had to give them something because it was clearly the crowd favorite.
It's kind of strange. It seems that with the masque, that we'll have great skits all the way through one year, and the next year it's: Meh. And then the next year it's really good! And then the next..meh.
So this year was kind of a meh year. I had heard that this year the committee screened the skits before they went on. So we didn't get so many lucky star skits like we did last year.
If they did: THANK YOU!
Now it's off to Stage Zero to see Dead Fantasy again...IF they can get it to play. They're having technical difficulties right now. But meh. They'll probably get it going and I have no other place to be so I'll stick around. Other people aren't so patient and left.
