Rob Is -Not- Awesome
I'm so glad we were able to be at Cascade ... we talked about it during the entire 5 hour drive home! Feeling especially happy for Rob; he had a wonderful time and was so glad to make new friends and help others out. I'm a little more quiet and dazed IRL, but I was so happy to do the same. Really though, he's so amazing and I feel so good for him. Sometimes I feel like I don't deserve him, but that keeps me motivated to be a better person. Thanks for giving him such an awesome time, guys.
Gonna do shout-outs while everything is still fresh!
Rob/Janus - I love you so much, sweetheart. Even when we were getting annoyed and fussing during the couples/pair build. Now we have another married-life story to tell and a reputation at Cascade! (that was weird but hilarious) Thanks for being with me through everything and forgiving me when I'm dumb, and always holding my hand. <3
Andrew/Black Six - Man, even though the con was smaller, it was really nice to be able to spend more time with you (versus our attention being spread out over a huge group.) Thanks for sharing the awesome videos that I can't stop quoting. And the dumb jokes. AND THE MONEYYYYYYY. Sorry we woke you up Thursday night. It was still funny, though.
Pat/DV - Dude, it was awesome getting to know you better. I'm totes here for you. Honey badgers rep. THANKS FOR THE COFFEE even though it won't be coffee made by you. Someday you need to make drinks for us. Stay excellent and keep running strong!
Maddison/Nukaya - Oh hey, it's a Monday! Loved hanging out with you more and having some good laughs. Don't forget that you're Super Awesome! I hope everything goes well for you. So many hugs. THANK YOU FOR DONUTS.
Jason/xccj - Thanks for contacting me beforehand with inquires and concerns, that meant a lot to me. Also tons of thanks for planning the fancy dinner! It was great and I think everyone had a good time; awesome to sit with you at it once again. I hope you post the BrickCon video. Good luck with all the driving! (I sure do sympathize)
Andrew/Velox - Sorry again we couldn't do that planning, but I think you and Rob used that time more productively. Rob kept praising you on the way home, BTW. You're a super nice guy; huge kudos. Loved meeting you for reals and chatting!
Micah/Kakaru - I didn't realize -you're- Kakaru until I saw you. XD Haha oops. Man, it was -great- geeking out over Homestuck and meeting Kyle. I'm sorry I made you and Rob go ask if he really WAS Kyle instead of having the guts to do it myself. It's just that you guys' faces were so funny. You're hilarious and clever and the face you make in response to weird stuff is funnyyyyy. Also yeah, we're tempted to attend BrickCon this year, if possible.
Steven/Swert - It was good to meet you finally. I'm glad you attended, and also really glad you talked with Rob. Hope you made it back safely home to our wonderful and weird Pierce County! Maybe someday when Rob and I are visiting my parents, we'll be able to visit you at work!
Sumiki - I'm sorry, it's like 1:30 am and I can't remember your real name. I feel terrible because I heard it all weekend, too. Sorryyyyyy. Thanks for coming and hanging out! We didn't really get the chance to talk, but that's all right, maybe sometime in the future!
I hope I didn't forget anyone; it's not because I don't like you, it's just that now I'm tired and the caffeine kick is GONE. My feet have blisters too. [/so whiny] But Cascade was GREAT and I got tons of Lego and had an amazing time. Totally want to go back next year.
Also I'm pretty sure we talked Kevin into bringing back 9-volt Bionicle monorails. High FIVE, guys!!
