Fan Expo 2010

29 08 2010

My experience at Fan Expo 2010 was pretty rare- I actually had a good time. It sucks to hear all the stories that have come out about people getting denied at the doors after paying for their tickets already and having everyone saying that they waited in line for hours. But I actually enjoyed the time I had there, I got out of it exactly what I wanted: to meet Michael Dorn (Worf) + Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) and to come home with lots of Star Trek merchandise. Here are some of my pics:

Can’t wait to get Michael Dorn to autograph this when I meet him at Fan Expo at the end of the month!!

Alrighty. Let’s begin, shall we? It’s been awhile since I’ve typed anything since it took me this long to figure out how to get wordpress working on my laptop. The problem was that everytime I tried to post something or access wordpress in anyway the site would log me out and tell me to quickly log back in, in an endless loop of nothing getting done. Anyways, I solved the problem, and the solution was to stop trying to get IE to work and just use Firefox like everyone and there mother uses. Just like that everything works. geeeze.

So last week me/Graeme/Steph/Schwan wentto Niagara Falls for the night/day.

Steph isn’t a morning person to say the least.

Kicking my ass at whatever this game is. Oh yeah, the boys were golfing while all this was happening. We did other stuff too, I just didn’t feel like posting every little picture.

Inside of the old casino, the one people don’t go to as much anymore now that the Fallsview is around. Glad I went though, made some of my money back…as I lost a ton the night before at the Fallsview.

J/k, here’s a lovely family portrait.

K so then after the Niagara Falls funtimes me/Graeme/Brent/Matt S. went to FanExpo in Toronto! woot woot! Where I went and met LEONARD NIMOY. Here is my proof:

Yes, that would be Leonard Nimoy and the back of my head. Leia buns ftw.

And here’s what I got autographed by the legendary Mr. Nimoy. He was a gentleman and a half and complimented me on my stitching skills. Happiest day of my life so far, though Graeme does take offense to that sentiment.

Me and some of the 501st’s finest bounty hunters.

Umm sooo yeah this whole post has taken me a lot longer than I thought it would when I originally started it. Which means that I’ll have to write another entry one of these days to actuallyyyy get caught up with what I’ve been up to lately. That was a nice taste though, wasn’t it?
