Oooooh, Round Table. XD

If I'm not doing anything, I'll drop by. I could sell some stuff. :X

[edit] Wait... I just saw the Sunnyvale part. ^^; I think my eyes saw the "San Francisco" part in the street address and thought it was SF without reading more carefully! Sunnyvale is way harder for me to get to, so I'm not so sure now. XD;

hehe I think he means selling stuff at AOD when the con actually arrives in August 2006. ;) If you want to go, let me know, and maybe we'll do like WSL where you take the bus to SF, and I'll pick you up and drive us to the event. And then afterwards I'll drive you back home since it's not too far. (Watch me get lost in that dark, scary part of your area again.. very low on fuel, big & wiiide Cadillac.. that was fun.)

If you can't make it, I might still go.. no cons that weekend (Ohayocon is the weekend before and we'll see come Saturday if I finished posting all the pics from that con, or I might just rest up at home.

Now that I re-read that it does sound that way. Darn. XD

Haha, I'm sorry I live in a dense forest in the far side of Marin now. XDDD

If I'm not doing anything that weekend and anyone else I know is going I think I might go. It's still pizza and anime!!

Hi guys,

Yeah, let me apologize for the confusion. "Selling your goods" refers to selling them at AOD, not at Round Table.

This is a party, free pizza, where anyone can come, but it's not a convention or anything. We're here to just meet ya'll, say hi, and hopefully chow down and relax together.

So I must apologize and say that people won't be permitted to sell their stuff at Round Table, but if you want information about selling at AOD, this is the place to visit!

Hope to see ya'll there. Don't make me eat all the pizza!

I'm still up for going, but can anyone get me a ride from the San Francisco area? I really don't want to have to take Cal Train since I've had nothing but bad experiences taking Cal Train. (since it's weekend, it only operates every hour) I would appreciate a ride down, but I already have transportation to get back up. If you can help, I'll give you a cookie!

Just PM me and we'll talk.

I won't be able to make it this weekend. :lost: In addition to having to do some family errands, I also need to rest up after returning from the busy weekend that was Ohayocon. So everyone who's going, please have fun and enjoy the pizza for me! ;)

Hi All,

In addition to the great perk of free pizza and new friends to make, I will also be coordinating footage for a documentary on anime and anime fans to be shown on Japanese TV.

If you are a cosplayer, please email me ASAP about showing up to the party in costume. You MUST email me ahead of time about showing up in costume. If you don't contact me on behalf of yourself or your group, I may choose NOT to show you in the footage. Absolutely nothing distasteful, gross, or violent, and absolutely no large props and weapons.

Please email me at rob@aodsf.org for more information!

Please be mindful of the other patrons at the restaurant, and of the other people enjoying the party.

Many cosplayers are already interested in this, and will be at the party!

See you there!

Hmmm... Now I'm tempted to give my Black Jack costume a full-weekend go-round, since I'll be taking it up to Sacramento on Saturday. (Counting down the hours...) I've gone out in public in full costume and makeup, even to a local Japanese restaurant (But then, it was Halloween weekend, and easier to get away with.)

Not like I haven't gone out to restaurants in costume outside of Halloween, but I'm still sitting on the fence for now. I'll see how Saturday goes, and if I don't wilt between then and Sunday afternoon.

(Edit 2006.1.15 @ 0152: Decided against wearing a costume, because I've worn Black Jack for 15 hours straight for Sac-Anime yesterday. It's being cleaned, de-linted, and refreshed for Anime LA, less than two weeks from now. It makes sense, since I'm coming to enjoy pizza, see friends, and bring the media gear again. (Digital camera, laptop computer, whee... I'm such a geek.) For now, there's sleep.)

I'm glad it was fun. ;_; I had a tiring night last night so I ended up sleeping in today and didn't bother to try and find a way down. ^^; Somebody post pics!!

Yay for the wombo combo. It was a good meeting to hand out flyers. Team Flex got a big plethora of them!

Indeed, it was a great time. (Man, I should have tried the Wombo Combo, but I was stuffed from the Italian Garlic Supreme I had.)

I'm really looking forward to August, and of course, distributing my AOD flyers while I can. (And yeah, in reference to one of my fellow attendees, I've updated my title and avatar as a flashback to the "Black Jack?!" moment at JTAF 3 - Yeah, I even picked up on the "Silver and Black Jack" - Nice one!)
