Cupid Strikes Back

This last weekend I headed up to Indianapolis to once again attend the Naptown Roller Girls event that featured members of the Rebel Legion and 501st. This year the event was called Cupid Strikes Back. They had a “kissing booth” setup as a fundraiser for one of the charities that the Naptown Roller Girls support.

Star Wars Night at the Derby

I headed up to Indianapolis on the weekend of the 30th to take pictures for the Rebel Legion Midwest base and the 501st Bloodfin Garrison’s trooping of the Naptown Roller Girls bout. It was a great weekend and was dubbed Dragon*Con.5 It was great to get to see Ed, Janna, Robert, Matt, Heather, and Chris and can’t wait until D*C now. Here are a couple of pictures and a link to the full gallery.

The holiday weekend

Well this weekend was interesting to say the least. I worked on turkey day, which mainly consisted of watching jackass 2.5, a river runs through it, and the first 6 episodes of 24 season 1.

On black Friday, all that I did shopping wise was to go to the cigar store to smoke the Opus X cigar that I picked up on Tuesday. I did break down and get a Diamond Crown Maximus while I was there as well, so I guess that makes me part of the black Friday crowds.

I did have an odd encounter at the cigar store. One of the people in there was one of the customers that I found most annoying when I worked at DK. He then decided to start talking to me. I view the cigar store kind of like the men’s room. It is a private place unless you are commenting on a game on tv etc, or you add to a conversation already in progress.

On Saturday I trooped the predators game for the sci-fi night. I ended up handling since by the time I helped paint Summer and Raychel blue, it was time to go out, and Gnash the mascot wore my Jedi robe and used my light saber when rapelling down from the rafters to the ice.

Today I slept nice and late and then went over to Radnor lake to play with the camera some more to try working on the manual settings. I took one of those pictures that you don’t expect. I got a picture of a buck mounting a doe. There were 2 other bucks right there too. It was kind of a crazy sight to see. I will post some pictures later on of the weekend’s events.

Hmm, it has been a while since I used this thing

I just realized that I hadn’t posted anything since the 1st. Let’s go with a nice Cliff notes version.

Feb 4th, drove to Lexington, KY to troop the Tim Zahn event. I wore the emperor. There were TONS of people there. It was fun.

Feb 6th. Tim Zahn signing in Nashville. It went well. Wore the emperor. Got some great emperor/emperor’s hand pictures with Kell.

Feb 10th. Make a Wish fundraiser in Clarksville. TONS of people. Wore the emperor. We made over 1300 dollars for Make a Wish.

I take my A+ test on Monday.

Oh, and I shaved my head.

That is all.
