California, life happenings and 1 more...
What a year. So many things happened! I'll get to a real recap of the year eventually, but the year decided to throw one more crazy curveball at the last moment.

Last week Nukaya got a call from a job she'd applied for, and they wanted her to come and interview. So she agreed to the interview.

So we booked plane tickets.

To San Diego.

The interview was at LEGOLAND, and we found out this week she got the job. Maddison will be a model builder for LEGOLAND parks, and we'll be moving from the lovely, yet cloudy, Portland to the eternally sunny and also lovely Southern California.

In a month!

We will still be at BricksCascade here in PDX in March, but California beckons.

NYCC, BIONICLE2015, COOL THINGS
It's a big day tomorrow.

Since the move to Portland in June 2012, I've been working at the same Starbucks store. I was promoted March of 2013, and I still stayed at this store, which is unusual for a promotion. Usually they promote you and then ship you out to another store. But I stayed! Which is cool, because this is the busiest store in the PNW, and the prestige with helping run this store is incredible. As the supervisor on my shifts, I've broken every drive-thru store record Starbucks corporate has had, which is, of course, the hugest thing I could say on my resume when I look back at my Starbucks career.

However, this store, being so busy, so prestigious, has a tendency for high burn-out, and I'm a little tired of, well, being tired all the time. So I'm transferring to another store. I talked with the SM of the store over in front of the Oregon Convention Center (which is where BricksCascade is held!) a few weeks ago. She used to be the ASM at my store, so I know her pretty well. And suddenly tomorrow is my last day at my store. Really quick turnaround!

So tomorrow is my last day at my current store.

And also the night we leave for NYC!

We're catching a red eye to NYC tomorrow night ("we" is Nukaya, Kakaru, and myself). I'm excited to see all of my friends who will be there (Scott and Andrew, Andrew, Yanni, Hanni, Peter, Ben, Jen, all the other random people I'm forgetting!) I'm also excited for the BIONICLE 2015 panel on Thursday, which is, of course, the entire reason we're going! I was able to get an invite from LEGO for the event (being the new BIONILUG ambassador has perks, amongst other reasons), and I'm just ready to be there. Plus, I've never been to NYC, and I need a Starbucks mug for my collection from the city.

On top of that, there are some cool surprises related to BIONICLE and the like coming to this blog Thursday and Friday thanks to NYC, so stay tuned! I've got some cool stuff for you guys! And some of it might just blow your mind.

NYCC, BIONICLE 2015, Travel
Well, just purchased tickets to NYC for October. Looks like NYCC is finally a reality!

Excited for the BIONICLE, as well as our first trip to NYC. I hear good things! (Also I'm going to buy the heck out of a NYC Starbucks mug!)

Brickfair 2014

brickfair, brickee, sunset gundam and 1 more...
So Brickfair was pretty amazing. We arrived Tuesday afternoon, and hung out with Andrew once he arrived. We did set up Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I won the Batman Ultrabuilds set in a door prize raffle. I talked with Peter Espersen for awhile. I manned a mean mean check-in desk. Maddison won TLG's convention Batman's 75th contest. Played a mean game of Cards Against Humanity with Andrew, Maddison, Aaron, David, Gabe, and Jamison. Trisha and her friend Andrew showed up and played too! Without Friar Tuck, I dominated Laser Tag and placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each of our games. Trisha placed first in both of the second games, but 13th in the first so technically I did better (I am going to cling to that). Missed Ray. Missed Bryan. Ate a lot of chicken. Had an odd fancy dinner. Hung out with a set designer. Geeked out with Retinence. Wore cool shirts. Took some photos. Dinner with Andi. Seriously there was so much that happened!

And so many streetpasses!

Also, I won a trophy.

Still in shock

Posted by DeeVee , in BZPower, Life Jul 28 2014 · 235 views

I mean seriously, I can't believe Brickfair plans start tomorrow! Maddison and I will be catching an early flight out of Portland tomorrow and landing at IAD in the early afternoon! Maddison is upset that we'll be getting up to catch the flight at like 4:30, but that's sleeping in for me.

Pretty ready for a vacation, not going to lie. Though I did finally finish my Coffee Master certification at work, now I get to wear the cool black Starbucks apron instead of the green one!

Anyway, at Brickfair I'll have a ton of MOCs this year, a lot of it due to my increased activity this year. The list:

(Bolded MOCs have never been displayed at any con, underlined MOCs have never been displayed at Brickfair specifically)
  • Black Six
  • Catwoman
  • Commander Stropes
  • Tufi
  • Hahli Mahri
  • Horizon Dragon
  • Jack Noir
  • Janus
  • Kakaru
  • Lewa Phantoka
  • Lion
  • MS-026 Sunset Gundam
  • Nukaya
  • Phazon Suit Samus
  • Pohatu Nuva
  • Princess Grr
  • Robot
  • Sailor Scout Hahli Husky
  • Sarge
  • Savage Planet Bulk
  • Spider
  • Toa Lewa
  • Toa Onua
  • Toro Gundam SD
  • Transtech Shockwave
  • Trunx
  • Vayland Dragon III
  • Vezon
  • Wereflo

....

I should probably get packing.
