    Booth 591, eh? Well it turns out I'm going, but only on Friday, and mostly just for Metroid Metal. I'll come say hi if I get a chance, though!

    Y-bot, I don't know if I told you, but I was able to get in. More importantly, free with a special guest pass. I will be there with recycledgamer on Sat

    By the way, Chris Kohler, who bought games from you according to that Wired article, has been posting on Facebook about how he got swine flu at PAX.

    Nice. I spent lots of time talking to Chris and exchanged money with him a couple of times. My gf and I are both sick but she got checked for swine flu and doesn't have it. I don't have a fever, just a bit of a sore throat so hopefully I'm okay too. I heard somewhere that there have been 100 confirmed cases from PAX.

    Yeah, at least two of my friends I spent the con hanging with came down with swine flu. Most of the rest of us just got colds, which - though bothersome - isn't going to cause me to miss worktime :P

    Why does it sound like everyone who went got sick in some way.

    I gotta say... I like PA, wouldn't mind going to PAX but this is kinda awesome.

    Go to the east coast show in Boston! It takes place in March :P Lord knows I plan on it.

    But yeah I think getting sick after cons is pretty standard. You get 50k people in one place in the middle of a city, I think there's a good chance a number of them will be sick.

    Hmmm, Boston? I might be very, very interested in going! It's not like it's any further than going to NYC from Montreal, and I've never been to Boston (or if I had, I was too young to remember).

    I went and I am not sick. A bit tired though I have been running...ok driving back and forth between Seattle and Portland in the last few days. I live in Longview, WA which is about 130 miles from Seattle and about 50 from Portland. Sunday night I drove from Seattle to Portland then from Portland to Longview. Yesterday I drove from Longview to Oregon City then Portland then Longview. I am just tired from the driving.

    Corey, you're going to make yourself sick if you aren't already. Take a rest and stay in Longview for a few days.

    Quick story....thanks Y Bot... So I am on Burnside trying to get my way to Voodoo Doughtnuts, I pulled too far into the intersection so I backed up. Well the guy that was crossing the intersection came to my window said thanks for not hitting him, blew me a kiss and walked off winking at me. Why is this related to PAX you might ask? Well during PAX I had a guy come over to me when I was working the booth with Y Bot and Billy Galaxy. The guy walked by the booth a few times before coming over and wanting to know something. He asked " are you straight?" I told him yes and he was disappointed and walked off, I didn't see him walk by again until Sunday night.
