Okay, so a funny thing happened on the way to the weblog. You can’t even begin to imagine what it’s like to have thirty-five megabytes a second being directed to your IP address. I imagine a watermelon being pushed through a pinhole.
But, enough about the denial of service attack! On with the blog! On with life!
Quick rundown of this weekend.
Friday night, caravan out to Steve’s house for a night of DDR, and drummania session mode. Finished Afronova on double. Introduced the animÃ© masses of AU to the glory and splendour that is Dance Dance Revolution.
Then, at Otakon, there’s a huge amount of very cool people wearing fantastic costumes, and I get some great photos. In addition, I lead a very, very large, angry crowd in a the following chant:
“When I say, ‘OTA!’–You say, ‘KON!'”
Standard call and response stuff–but man oh man was it loud!
Then, I went to New York to visit some friends. Watched American Pie 2, then came back to Washington, DC in time for work on Monday morning. Today.
What a crazy year it has been. What a good one, too.
