^ Depending on my presentations, I often d/l images and create talking point notes, of course, the AMV stuff took months of prep, and I am now doing anime and general video programming for a couple of other cons happening throughout the year; that too takes at least a month and a half before the particular con.

< Has cancelled pretty much ALL cons & hobby activity and even some yard maintenance because I am dropping EVERYTHING to study up on US Patent law - I hope to take and pass their Patent Bar Exam in a few more months of prep - BUT it's taking everything I've got - nights, weekends, etc. This will be a real {#$%$!!} of an exam.
I really hope I can pass it and get back on with LIFE.

^ Can't remember what I did that day. But I do know what I did on Mothers Day...finally made her a card.
It might have been only a week before Cancer promoted her to angel status (passed away), but at least I had no regrets that I knew of.

< it's been a life changing spring and summer. Lost my parents to Cancer and Diabetes one after the other, couldn't get work so I had to move in with my aunt and uncle, if only just for June, as their house was being bought and had to move themselves. Hopped over to a foster home in mid July. It's been no easy ride adjusting to it all.
Through the smoke and flames and plot twists my life has thrown me, I'm still the hardy and heartfelt character behind the cosplay. The con on the horizon, obstacles seem to melt away before me. Had only little time and resources to fashion together anything new, but all my old cosplays survived the two moves, and whatever fresh additions I have should be just what I need. In a few short days we can finally say...our home and friends are only a bridge away.
(this has been an update in the humble roller coaster known as the life of TurboSaiyanJason. we now return you to your regularly scheduled con forums)

What, other than the usual, are you anticipating the most for con this year?

^ Okay granted the convention is over now. But I was looking forward to Bedtime Stories and Otaku over 25. And incidentally both turned out wonderfully thank you very much.

< Currently working my writing project and enjoying some quiet time on my first post con day.  :)

^ Today, it was just added back to Netflix and I tossed an episode for Max, had cookie monster eating an apple.  But then kiddo grabbed the controller and put it on Peg+cat

< I can recite lots of children's programing songs now.  My Sons current favorite is Peg + Cat, its cute he's 3 and was trying to count his fingers from watching the show and jumps during counting.  The songs are catchy and the puns are heavy too.

V batman rain jacket for the win? ( he is okay with the hood down)
Also what's the deal with both few houses giving out treats and (which makes sense) lack of trick or treaters?

^ Fewer tick-or-treaters and fewer houses... Hmm. I think that culture has changed in a couple of ways: Most of these traditions, including the song 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' - which is about begging for delicious, high-calorie traditional Christmas foods - especially desserts - came from a time when actually destitute people and families would literally drop by to beg, or offer some handywork around the house in exchange for a place at the dinner table or even a spot to sleep out in the barn or in a hayloft. A higher level of trust between strangers needed to exist. 'Peak Hobo' was reached during the depression right before WW2, with something like 25% of males unemployed. After WW2 we invented suburbs and subdivisions (cf 'Levittowns.') Then came drug days of the '60s, which turned the 'happy hobo' image with the wooden pole and sack on the end of it into the strung out hippie scrounging through your garage uninvited and possibly with a stolen weapon, and that was the beginning of the end. By now most people don't really interact with their own neighbors too much anymore, (for a number of reasons you can google but which may be too un-PC for this forum) and trust between strangers has dropped precipitously. One result: many of today's parents seem to prefer an anonymizing element between giver and receiver. Hence the transition to packing up the kids in the SUV and heading off to the mall for trick-or-treats, rather than walking your own neightborhood with goofy, fun lanterns.

< Now designing automotive harness connectors.

<Would really like to more involved with kcon but right now are in the middle of year one (which have been told is the hardest) of an developmental diagnosis for my 3 1/2 year old, doesn't really mix well.

For such a young kid who doesnt even know whats going on themselves, I'm sorry it's been so rough for you and your little one :/ Insurance and paper work ALWAYS suck :/

^ for me it would probably be diabetes (sorry!), the juvenile kind more I think because of the emotional effect it has on me.  My best friend died of it at 20, if it had a face I would punch it.   I remember getting tested (when preggers) for it,  they have you drink this nasty sweet drink like kool that is wrong (after the test bring a snack or a drink with you to settle stomach)

<I have heard some people like the drink, but I never really liked the super bright colored kids drinks growing up.

(No it was a guy friend)
^I LOVED to dip French fries in my milkshake and I would try to dip the other end in ketchup, so good.  Other then that I was the "good one" 

<I like to cook and experiment with cooking, n food manga.  Tried making a steak dish from the manga "food wars"
it turned out pretty decent!

It was marinated in minced onions that were then used in the sauce!

V If you could try a dish from any anime what would it be?

^ YUMMY:

Not exotic, but you know what it's like to enjoy a dish so that you *know* what it smells and tastes like when you see it in a photo? Well, basic Ramen like in any hole in the wall restaurant in Japan with a sign with characters on hanging fabric flaps that read "chu-ka ra-men" (中華拉麺.)

Anime characters who are adults such as office workers often grab a bowl after work and sometimes a large bottle of beer or three. In some anime sometimes the landlady takes pity on the young, male, broke-a$$ deadbeat who somehow becomes the center of a harem show, and will defray some or all of a rent payment if the kid treats her to a bowl of 中華拉麺. I have been to a number of Stateside restaurants, but there's just something missing. When I see it in anime, I'm like "YUM-dammit I want some!"
 
< Had a chance to eat WHALE in Japan and it was meaty and delicious. Whaling in the US continued until the 1920s when petroleum became cheaper for lamp oil and lubricants. But many Americans in New England and San Francisco in the 19th century would have had a chance to enjoy whalemeat, and many women wore whalebone corsets. Read Melville - not just "Moby Dick," but try "Billy Budd, Foretopman."

^ No. Cute, but not cute enough. Next critter. Also, my blood may have some surprising contents that may taste funny.

< Is imagining all the anime characters with long train dresses, 6 to 12 layers of traditional kimonos (medieval Asian princesses, etc.) and long, droopy-sleeved fighting tunics (Cho from Koihime Musou, for example) or ceremonial garb, or like Kotori Monou from the old anime 'X' who wears a 28ft diameter skirt - and how it would SUCK to try to SWIM in these cosplay costumes... OK so maybe you can sneak along a trolling motor?

^ I'm very sensitive (in a negative way, sorry) to horror, people getting 'et,' or negative paranormals like vampires, zombies, were-wolves, etc, and there's just so much other anime out there (over 200 new shows coming out per year now) that I've been watching other stuff. So, no feelings for Levi Ackerman either way, except that my first job out of engineering school was at a truck factory, where I learned about Ackermann Geometry. (javascript link - fun!)

^ Not a gearhead or a constant viewer, but racing is in my code. Had a dad that threw it on every sunday.
Though if I was ever hooked up with a vacation to Florida and had tickets to see the Daytona race, or if they actually came to PIR (not the offshoot series, the actual big names) in the middle of their season...I'd have to pinch myself twice.

< Vroom. Cosplayers and racing. Both fun, exciting, and sometimes a crash happens (or as my dad called it "someone sneezed" lol). In cosplay terms, just gotta bust out the sewing kit, change out the worn tires, adjust the wedge 2 degrees, and keep running hard 3" from the wall. (okay maybe I mixed the two up, but the principle is the same!)

^ For many years, I had this weird lumpy thing on the joint of my jaw.  About three years ago, my then almost-2-year-old son took one of his wooden blocks and hit me smack dab on the lump.  It dropped me to the floor; it made getting a nut shot feel like nothing.  It turns out that the lump was a benign tumor.

^ A more recent one is that my son and I are jamming out to Alice Cooper.  He's headbanging and screaming like a true rock fan... I'm so proud.

< HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!  (This was my first good Father's Day as a father).

^ About 1hr 20min from a Friday afternoon thru Sunday afternoon! I was ran a craps table all Friday night in 24-hr gaming, and then I did an AMV all-nighter the next night till 6:30am, and went to 7am Mass off-site then returned for breakfast, hotel checkout and the rest of the con!
< Haven't found any new cons to try in the Phoenix AZ area. I went to Saboten-con here last year but all their con organizing and planning is online rather than in-person, so it didn't feel 'real' enough to get emotionally engaged with. But there're some steampunk events around the old movie set city outside of Tucson, and then *real* history of the Great West is right under your feet - over 100,000 abandoned mine works + some Civil War stuff too, as AZ was a Confederate territory.
