I spent about $30 on merchandise. The rest was transportation, admission, etc. Spent yesterday recouperating from exhaustion and sore/strained muscles. Had some good bonding conversation with my girl.
In other news: finally got my (still broken) harddrive back. I am under the impression that Elaine pulled some strings or something, but have not yet heard the full story.
Owe a few bucks to J and Les, but neither of them will hound me for it. Trying to keep a mental note on it.
Got most of everything unpacked and sorted. Just a few things left to tidy up and then it'll be back to the same ol' routine.
Watched "The Box" and "Sharkwater". I didn't find either particularly good, but I didn't want my life back after watching them either. (ie. they were mediocre). "The Box" was just strange, and "Sharkwater" you can tell they didn't have much of a budget and some of it was really sad.
I agree, which is why I bought it, even having no idea what it is.
I wish I could bring you up some year. I think you'd love seeing all of the cosplay and everything.
There weren't very many new/different flavours of pocky this year. There was a caramel one that I just didn't feel like paying for, and a wildberry one that sold out before I had a chance to pick any up. So far, my favourite is still pineapple.
I am assuming you've had chocolate and strawberry? Any other flavours you've tried? I had a purple yam one a few years back that I was too chicken to try, lol. Last year I got apricot and tiramisu. Mmmm.
The most exotic one I tried was green tea *barf* and coconut. I can only get those flavors at Non-con :( Check out The Asian Grocer They are a great store and shipping is only $5 no matter what you get! I don't know if it is the same in Canada though. Either way check it out! ^-^
Coconut sounds good. I had green tea flavoured icecream once and to me it tastes like fishfood (those flakes you feed goldfish). I think they also had a cappucino flavoured pocky at the con, but I didn't have much money this year. Thanks for the link!
