Looks like I will have to bail on tomorrow due to work-related commitments. Have fun; I'll catch you all later.

Thanks to everyone who showed up at the Tilted Kilt (there were 9 or 10 of us?). Snapped a sneak peek of our waitress - she was actually not a very good waitress but in ADV tradition I post the picture here..



The show itself I found disappointing - there were a lot fewer vendors than last year and I struggled to spend more than an hour wandering around.

Joe, give the girl credit...with a name like Columbiana (not sure if that is the common spelling) she is destined to be a waitress or stripper. Of course, stripper might work better for her!

I found the show a little "blah" myself. I'm thinking about 30% smaller then last year.

I did have a good time shooting the shit with everyone though so I found it to be a day well spent!
