3 Cons worth of Pictures in One Small Post

While I was posting up my pictures for ConNooga, I realized that I had never posted my shots from GMX or Chattacon, so I will link to all of these in this one post.

First is GMX.

Chattacon 2010

This last weekend was the first convention of the year that I attended, Chattacon in Chattanooga, TN. I worked for part of the con at the beer booth, and also had a photographer badge, even though I didn’t snap that many shots over the weekend. This con is always a great time, and a good chance to catch up with people that you haven’t seen since Dragon*Con in many cases.

They had the band Arc Attack there and i was able to get some decent shots of their show that is conducted using singing Tesla coils.

Here are a couple of samples.

Sickness has arrived

Well last Friday morning, I started getting a scratchy throat and had to blow my nose quite a bit. Over the weekend I took over the counter meds, and that seemed to clear up my nose, but I still had a deep cough. The cough just wouldn’t go away. I went to the clinic today, and I was running a fever and have a viral infection. I was told to stay home for the next two days while taking the meds that I had to get. This does create quite a problem, as Chattacon is this weekend, and it doesn’t look like I am going to be able to go. I can’t drink on the meds I am on, and that is a big portion of Chattacon, and without that aspect, the cost of the badge makes it very cost prohibitive. I hate to miss this one, as it was one of my first conventions to go to, and it has become a tradition. I would rather get well though, as I hate being sick.

Chattacon in review

Well let’s see.

I drank lots of beer. There was no drama at all. Everyone there had a blast. All cons should be like that. My total of my big mug was 3 1/4 mugs. which works out to approximately 14 bottles of Killians. I wish there would have been time for more. That was just Saturday night. I lost count of Friday pretty quickly.

I got to drink a beer with for his birthday which was cool as well. Today is Crispy’s birthday so be sure and wish him a good one.

I am back to a week of work that if the past few have been any indicator, will go rather quickly. I had a performance review today, and I really want to hang it on my refrigerator. I was in shock at the great comments that I got from my manager. That is always a nice feeling. I hope that it will lead to more money before too long, which would make it even better.

I have become really involved with the airsoft team, as within a week of being on the team, I was asked to do some maintenance on their website as well has help with the message board. I really don’t mind this as it is easy, and I like to be able to help out. I can do most of that in the lulls at work, which makes it even better.

March 15th is Noob day at the airsoft field. I am still a noob for this as I haven’t played an official field game. It will also be the first game at which I will be able to use my SAW. I am excited for that. Well back to surfing the internetz while I am here at Portland Brew.

Short week

Well it will be a short week this week. I have Friday off as I will be in Chattanooga for Chattacon. This means that I need to get all of my costume crap together and ready to load into my car by Thursday night, as I want to get to Chattanooga early on Friday to try to check in early. That reminds me that I need to call the hotel and request early check in.

I think that I am taking Chief, well I guess regular deck crew as I am bald and have a huge beard, BSG Marine, and my Centurion. I might take the jumpball suit for one last hurrah before I sell it, but I think it is going to be a little cold for that one.

Well off to work in the 18 degree weather.
