    I got called in to work - a support call from a customer. I'm on call 24x7, but I don't usually get called on weekends. I worked until 11:30 p.m., then went to bed. Woke up at 2 a.m. when my roommate's friends came rolling in drunk. Seems they had gotten into a fight outside a RO bar, one of them had his head split open, blood ever where. They were very drunk and screaming and yelling at each other. Kept me up until 5 a.m. Went to bed, got up at 8:30 a.m. Sunday when the customer called back with more problems. What a weekend. To say I was ticked off would be putting it mildly. This is what happens when you rent a room in a house with others.

    What a write-up! Sorry we did not connect as it was great to meet so many friends face-to-face. The organizers did one fantastic job and their good humour in the face of a hectic two days deserves plaudits from all sides. Those Ninja elevators were something else, no bells, they sneak up on you and are gone before you can blink.

    Thanks for the vicarious rendition of the fest for those, such as myself, who could not make the trek. That was a fun read, and the photos tell their own stories.

    Hey, I just realized that that first picture is in my room, when she was coming around to sell the last of the fifty-fifty tickets. I shoulda bought more!

    And I for one thank you for that. It gave me cause to go back and read Wiggy's write up again. Which is very entertaining. I especially love the part about the "Sansui Drop" and "Bose Tune Up".:lmao:

    Also reading it over again puts me in the mindset to make more of an effort to get my ass to AKFest08.:thmbsp:
