Well, this will be my last blog from the EA Studios in Redwood City, California. I'm boarding my plane tomorrow at Noon and heading back to the lovely state of Texas. I am excited to see Charles and Chica and my hellion Catillac. But at the same time...I am sad that I won't see estatica, hatshepsut, Tug, SteveB, padre333, DOT, or Ulkrshn...ever again, and if I do...I imagine it will be quite some time before then. Padre says 'Never say Never'...but, perhaps if I win the lottery or something, I'll fly over and visit with him and Carrot, and maybe even head to Turkey or Portugal or the UK...or maybe even to Tug's area of America. I've never been any of those places, so perhaps I should add it to my list of things to do.
Aside from the TSR folk, I've met some people who live in Texas...there were about 4 of us (ehaught (builder) and his wife and eggzie (machinima)), I believe. I always figured me and my mom were the only people in Texas who played the game...or at least, the only one's who admitted to playing to the game. It was interesting...all the different people and different accents. If you ever get a chance to hear Padre's Texan accent...it's definitely worth it. Poor thing, he tries so hard.
I have a load of pictures, but...of course...my mother's camera ate junk the first day, so they are either super blurry or...well, nonexistant. I may upload them at some point, and hope that you can tell what they are...or, I may just leave everything to the imagination. It is probably best I do that anyway. I've asked the TSR flock to send me some pictures because they all know my camera is a load of crap at the moment, so hopefully I'll have some for myself at least.
Today was the last day of the camp, there was an awards ceremony and then a cookie/cupcake decorating contest. After making my cookies, I just ate the icing and sprinkles. They were the best part of course. Dinner was...well, gross...again. I didn't really expect anything else, but I've got cookies and crackers here in my room to eat...so, I shouldn't starve before getting something in the morning before flying out.
I was really hoping to get to see San Fransisco before leaving, but didn't really ever have the chance. Oh well...just going to EA Studios was exciting enough. Not to mention the TSR Flock and all our weirdness... 8]
