So tired today. Have to unpack, sort through swag, and do some typical errand-type stuff. Will post some thoughts on the show once I'm more awake :-P

Wait, what did I miss here? :lol:

That was on Thursday night; bitprophet and I met up with metaly and went out to dinner, where poutine was discussed (it was on the menu at the place we went to, and we were like, WTF?) :lol: Afterwards, we went to the Cheesecake Factory for dessert; since we picked up his dinner tab, metaly got our dessert one :)

I had a blast at the meetup. Thanks for organizing it blueshinra.

It was nice to talk to Kube00 at the CagCast.

Gotcha...

My son sorted out all the swag last night when we got home. After he took nearly half of it to his room and gave his little brothers and sister some more of it, there wasn't much left for me ;).

I also realized after I got home I completely failed to get anything for his big sister. But given that she is 15 and not into video games at all, it would have been hard for me to drop $20+ on some shirt only to have her think it was hideous and never wear it. But I probably could have gotten her something at one of the oddball merchant booths where they just had random Japanese-style T-shirts. The thing is, even then I wouldn't know if she would think it was cool or completely nerdy. So I guess I did the right thing my playing it safe. She just wants iTunes money in return for the oversight - I can deal with that ;).

I am so glad some random person handed us their ZombieU mask on the way out of the hall on the last day - my 4 year-old has been running all over the house saying "Braaiiins" and randomly hissing while wearing the mask. Good times...

And this is why I brought as much swag home as I did (note that the Skylanders shirt was something we bought before PAX at Target or Fred Meyer ;)):

I came out of it unscathed, which is really kind of amazing. I spend nearly all school year (which starts next week) sick, though, since my kids go to 4 different schools. Maybe I had some immunity built up to whatever was present at PAX ;).

PAX was awesome, and it was great getting to meet you guys!

If it's anything like East, most of the places in the area won't be taking reservations.

In hindsight, I was way off on this. Didn't realize that there were so many more restaurants around Prime than East.
