FanimeCon 2010 Wrap up: Part 1 of 5 – Friday

Originally my plans were to have a single Fanime wrap up entry for myself, and another from John (since it was his first con and all). That being said, I wrote a “journal” at the end of each day’s trials/tribulations/activities. The resulting “entry” would be better classified as a novella. It would be far to long for anyone to read. As such, I’ve decided to break down the con into one blog entry per day. As we were there for Friday through Monday (4 days) there will be 4 entries. On top of that I’ll post a conclusions piece. This might be Fanime overkill for those that don’t care, but if you really want the “inside view”, this is the best I can offer. So without further adieu… Friday.

Fanime This Weekend

And in fact today! Indeed, we are there this very moment.

Jon and I are currently at Fanime. Jon went last year (and the year before that), and as I previously mentioned, he convinced me to go this year.
I flew down to meet Jon (and get my motorcycle back) yesterday and after an enjoyable dinner we headed back to his place to finish final preparations.

If you are in the San Jose area, we both encourage you to come on down and stop by; we will be there for the whole show. The show is fairly inexpensive and a single day pass is between $25 and $35 depending on the day.
