It was a great weekend of Geekery, Charity and good times... went with the UACM crew on Saturday for the colony sweep and got interviewed for the upcoming people of record story and photo'd gearing up, in action and our honour guard for a friend who returned safely from overseas :) The Yip Yip costume as a huge hit, I made an appearance at the bar and Star Trek party on Friday night and wore it at the masquerade and a bit after the show and the dance. The original idea was to present it out of competition but I found out another entrant did something similar, so we teamed up then had my buddies Chil and Ghost prep to pull me back out on stage to promote the charity auction. The costume cost me under $20 to make and a lovely lady bought it for $75! Also some of my autographed security shirts went for about $200 apparently! Wow great going! :D
Geek points to the Nth Degree... Adam Baldwin, who played Jayne Cobb (the character I outfit as) actually pulled me into his interview on Saturday with Space Channel, then mentioned me on Sunday and pointed me out from the stage... and since then has mentioned me a few times on twitter... wowsers, so cool.

There's so much to chat about, will pull up a proper report when I get the chance, including pics and vids... again thanks to all involved, it was a great show :D
Literally as I was pulling gear out of the car to get to the hotel room I got dispatched to a run to South Carolina starting 7am Monday morning, hence my alacrity it getting outta Dodge Sunday in hoped of getting some sleep. I made it home safely around 8pm tonight, currently unwinding and trying to cool off - my brain will be in a better place by the weekend... so exhausted, but feelin' good, ya know :)
