Here I am at Comic-Con

First off, I'm happy to announce that Paraphrase Theater won the award for best comedy. You can read about it at the official site. I was so surprised, that all I could muster for an acceptance speech was, "Thanks," and when the presenter encouraged me to say more, I replied, "That's all I got."

I bet you'd like some photos of the event, and I'd like to give them to you, but all I have is a disposable camera I bought at the airport, so you'll have to wait until I get it developed. I'm kind of surprised they still sell those things. You could probably buy a cheap digital camera for the price of two of them. But who am I to judge, I'm the one who bought it.

Comic-Con is a bit overwhelming, that's why I'm here in the hotel, blogging on what I'm told is the busiest day of the event. It was too busy for me on Thursday, the least busy day of the event, so I'm not in a big rush to get down there. Which isn't to say I'm not having a good time, of course. There's just a limit to how many people in anime outfits that I don't recognize bumping into me I can take.

But I got to see some neat panels, got my picture taken with Pikachu, and all kinds of stuff. I'll tell you all about it when I get back and have pictures to go along with it. Now, back to the convention center.

Update: It'll be a while before I can upload my own photos, but until then, this picture of me awkwardly accepting the award was uploaded by the official Star Wars blog:

The rest of the album is here

Thanks, everybody. It's a trophy, although I'm going to have to glue it back together, C-3P0's foot broke off within minutes of me getting it.

Congratulations! Trophies are the best...I think we have some Gorilla Glue around here to fix C-3P0's foot back on.
