I don't know what the schedule will be Saturday night yet so that's hard to say... it's a 24 hour con, and the hotel is within walking distance. We'll have to eat at some point, though.  I can leave whenever I feel like it on Sunday (usually there's a lolita meetup around 11am-ish) but I don't know when JD's flight leaves, I'll have to catch and ask him.

You should do that.
You should also have some idea of the kind of cuisine you want to expose yourself to for this ACen, because at the moment what's coming to mind is Japanese cuisine at varying levels of authenticity with all you can eat sushi places occupying the bottom rungs of that ladder.
But, Chicago is a metropolitan area. Depending on what you want you can get basically any kind of cuisine if you know where to look and are willing to suffer the traffic or mass transit to get there.

I'm flying in for ACen again this year. Come and meet a real foreign person!

I have to leave early afternoon on the Sunday, but I'll be there all day Friday and Saturday.

You guys should all just come to NY Comicon so I don't have to travel.

If anyone is going to Pax East this weekend, would you be able to do me a favor?

Kris Straub of Broodhollow is going to be there, and he's going to have 1.25" Society of the Skull and Shovel lapel pins available. I collect lapel pins, and would be willing to cover any of the costs necessary if someone were willing to pick up and mail one of those to me. If so, let me know, I'd be much appreciative.

These are now on sale at his website!

Today I got autographs from:

Mike Mignola
Mike Allred
Laura Allred
Terry Moore
Ben Templesmith
John Layman
and Don Rosa, on a print I bought of Scrooge diving into his money bin.

Kevin Eastman had a line so I did not get his autograph.

The big question is are you still exhibiting signs of an aneurysm? Because you still need to go to the Doctor, man.

I may go to FanExpo but my attendance is contingent on (1) whether or not Amanda Conner is a guest, and (2) if I have enough money to get a sketch from her.

Improving.

Might see going by my family practice if it doesn't continue to improve, but they haven't found a cause the last bunch of times I've been in with these symptoms and I don't see why that would change.

Unless you meant "the Doctor" in connection to me being at Comicon in which case yes there were a hell of a lot of Doctors there.  I gotta say the Eleventh Doctor had to be the most popular costume at the thing, followed by the Tenth.  (Followed by simpler costumes in the form of people wearing Finn's hat and Jayne's hat.)  There were maybe a half-a-dozen Fourth Doctors and I saw one each of the First and Fifth.

Is anyone going to San Diego Comic Con? If you are, can you grab me one of these?

I always considered myself to be a fairly poor interface designer until I started working with other software engineers.

EDIT:  How the hell did this get in this topic?  Its supposed to be in the #EmployedPeopleProblems thread.

It's about that time for PAX again and once again I'm not going!  :3c  If Riot happens to be giving out LoL skins again, I would be appreciative if anyone could snag me a code.  (Mostly Riot Blitzcrank, but Arcade Hecarim would be cool too)

I might be helping some people run demos at PAX this year. If I get in, I'll see what I can do about those LoL skins.

I'll try, but I'll be avoiding the LoL room as much as possible.
