Luna, [livejournal.com profile] beckyh2112, and [livejournal.com profile] ravynfyre, provided I can get a reservation, I will be having a ridiculously expensive dinner at Craft while in Dallas. I will get gussied up all fancy and take a cab, because even though it's under two miles away, I'm not walking in heels.

I have wanted to eat in one of Tom Colicchio's places for years, and I'm not going to pass up the chance to eat there when I'm that close. All I need to know now is, do I make the reservation for one, two, three, or four? >_> If neither of you are interested in going with, I understand; it's pricy and fussy and all. But gods, look at that dinner menu. So much food porn! And if someone comes with me, we could even split the decadent Bone-in Ribeye, Bone Marrow & Bordelaise for two!.

Yes, I am silly, silly person. But, but.... so much food!

Home. Exhausted. Worth it.

Post to follow later.

So, since Ravyn's big ass truck has a multi-outlet power converter, and I don't feel like sleeping, I thought I'd start working on what will be the first of several Botcon trip recap posts. Because really, if I tried to cram it all into one post? I'd break the LJ character limit.

Wherein we see alot of sand, rocks, brush, and one really big hole in the ground. )

Botcon so far has been much fun. Yesterday was a "free" day, so to speak, as we did not do the Hollywood tour. Thank the gods we didn't, as it apparently sucked arse.

Instead ran around the awesome pedestrian mall behind the center until it was time to queue up for the Hasbro store. Since people did not pay me in a timely manner for ebay purchases (grrrrrr), I just did manage to get all my Botcon editions (Sweeps! I have Sweeps!), plus some goodies for friends (if i waited, things would have been sold out, the rate things were going) and my prerelease Chromia. Who is NOT an Arcee repaint, but is totally awesome anyway.

But money is in my account now, so I have funds to play with in the dealer room today. Whee! I'm looking out for someone just selling their Scourge from the boxed set. I'm not keeping my boxed set; I'm just not that thrilled enough with the figures. But I do want a Scourge, because he is an awesome toy. Will be picking and choosing from among the souvenir packs again, as well. Razorclaw does nothing for me, but Elita is a requirement. I like Skyquake, because I like the mold, (keeping Leozack-the attendee figure- for the same reason. Sexy jets.), but Banzai-tron leaves me cold. The Sweeps, however, are not leaving my greedy little grasp. Even if they are worth the most money in aftermarket.

Got Scott a pre-release prime, got Jess, Elvis, and Caulin an Autobot Elite Guard shirt with an awesome Kup image on it. Emmy, I hope, hope, hope that growing-like-a-weed kid of yours wears a medium. Their gamer-sized, and the large looked like it would swallow him. I have made people smile; this makes me happy.

Dealer room opens at 2 for Primus package holders. I admit, I'm not so worried about being in that first push. Last year, you couldn't really look at anything because of the crowd.

That's the news for now. Cross-posting to Facebook, so sorry if some of you get this twice.

I have built my own Transformer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I shall paint him when I am home. For while I appreciate keeping within a storyline, I really have another paint scheme in mind. >_>

Customs Class is so worth the money, despite having to listen to very whiny boys. Not that I didn't have my own share of frustrations with the diagrams, but really. I wanted to smack a few of them.

May has been busier than March. And I won't be back to posting till sometime in June. Leaving the AM to drive to Pasadena for this year's Botcon. Gonna have a real vacation for the first time in ages, not just a weekend jaunt.

See ya on the flip side.
