    Shamelessly copied from my facebook:

    So I'm washing my hands in one of the bathrooms at PAX, when I look up at myself in the mirror and see Wil Wheaton right next to me also washing his hands. I nod, he nods. Other guys are coming in and out of the bathroom. They nod, Wil nods. Not a single fucking word is spoken.

    Men, I salute you.


    Also, being on the Hai Shi Dao squad during the last round of the Steel Battalion was fucking epic. I wonder who the hell was video taping us :3.
    Sniper rifles, cutter booms, bang needles, and potato salad for the win!

    Probably my most epic moment was during round 5 of the Omegathon. Watching the competitors for about 5-10 minutes...then hearing a voice behind me and turning around and seeing Jerry sitting there. Definitely thought I was having another PAX dream at that point.

    I got a photo taken of myself about to punch an Old Red Dragon in the face (three seconds before being eaten). I got a photo taken of myself squaring off against Haruno Sakura from Street Fighter II (three seconds before getting my ass kicked). I got a photo taken of myself with my arm around a gorgeous woman, looking like I was some badass undercover cop/racer.

    There were other awesome things, but right now those are the ones that stand out the most.

    My brother and I were on the train to Seattle with Wil Wheaton for about 5 hours. He taught us how to play Zombie Dice, and my brother kicked his ass at Tetris, and also won the tie breaker round of ZD as we totally nerded out talking about Dr Who, D&D and other misc geekery.

    Sweet!!! Totally jealous.

    The whole con was amazing. This was my first year being in the BYOC and I didn't expect to be partaking in much as I was mostly there to chill with my boyfriend and his brother. Somehow, I managed to win two computer cases with my lame art. One was for 4th place in the PWNY contest, helping my boyfriend with his Old Snake PWNY. The other was for taking second in the MSPaint contest. I lost to a drawing of bacon, it was to be expected.

    One other nice thing was on Saturday night I was practically passing out at my computer and an Enforcer was nice enough to walk up and ask if I was alright. Small courtesy, sure, but it was nice of him.

    My 2 friends and I are in the Sheraton elevator waiting to go up to our room to drop off swag and our bags before doing the Console/PC freeplay and just as the elevator is closing a guy forces his way through the doors and his friend follows. Turns out the guy forcing the door open was Jerry and his friend was Mike. So it was my friends and I along with Tycho & Gabe :) Very cool as it was my first PAX and first time I met them. We all just said hi as they were rushing to another panel.

    My brother in law decided to purchase a copy of Settlers of America, a Catan offshoot based around Manifest Destiny. You may have seen us playing it both Friday and Sunday nights in the Sheraton. One of spectators hung around for a couple hours, a dude clad in a red Duke Nukem shirt. We were just bullshitting and half paying attention to the game, and he offered to grab up some drinks from the bar.

    When he comes back, I mention the shirt and the complete surprise of the booth being at the convention, especially when I made people look for it a couple years back in a scavenger hunt at PAX. He tells me we should stop by tomorrow and check it out and introduces himself as Mikey Nuemann from Gearbox (Software Creative Director and voice of Scooter from Borderlands). We hang out a bit (casually attempting to complete the game) before he runs to bed.

    After a wait in the line, we get to hop into the Duke booth. It was surreal to say the least to be able to play DNF. I grabbed some swag and thanked Mikey. He mentioned he bought two copies of the game based on the viewing the night prior (and he likes board games).

    After the end of the convention, we ran into Mikey again and I asked if he wanted to play Catan again. I gave him my number so he could text me after his crew grabbed dinner. Around 9:45 I get "We doing Catan? Pitchford want in, no joke." Randy never showed up, but Mikey, my wife and I played a full game, which took longer than it should because people would wonder by and wonder what bizarre game that appeared to be the spawn of Ticket to Ride and Catan. Mikey also bought 5 pizzas for the people still in the lobby gaming as we headed into Monday's early morning hours. We knocked out a round of Zombie dice, which he also bought at the expo.

    Poor guy was wiped out and we parted ways after a couple pictures and handshakes. Dude was chill as hell the whole time we hung around.

    I was dressed as Lilith from Borderlands at the Gearbox panel on Sunday, and Randy Pitchford noticed me, called me up, asked my name then introduced me to the crowd. I shook his hand and he really seemed to like the outfit, and he said I was hot (lol). So unexpected for me and super crazy, considering I'm usually shy. Nothing short of a bitchin' experience for me. Really made my day.

    If you took any pictures, post them or send them to me.

    The whole panel was great, and every Gearbox guy up there seemed awesome.

    Not to turn this in to a Gearbox lovefest but they chose PAX to unveil Duke specifically because of the focus on the actual gaming community. They also bought pizza for their panel.

    Forgot to shout out Alon from Chatterbox trivia for always having swag for his audience, and it isn't given out during the panel he'll keep asking questions afterwards in the hallway. Awesome.

    Oh man, cool things that happened were numerous.

    1) After spending all day not having seen the Intel Game On lady all day, I went to the Game On booth and asked the guy what she looked like. I got a description and tracked her down within 10 minutes. I told her I'd been looking for her ALL day and if I could please get a barcode I would be eternally thankful. She said "Really?", smiled and gave me one. I repeated thanks several times and literally ran to the Game On booth. I tripped on an escalator and banged up multiple fingers resulting in much bleeding.

    The results? They scanned my card and I won an i7 extreme. I thought it was a hallucination at first, then they had me fill out the tax forms. :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

    2) On Saturday at BYOC, BigRed announced that anyone with a filthy keyboard should come up and show just how filthy they were. I brought mine up and immediately got some "eew" and "oh, that's just f***ing nasty" comments. Long story short, I had to reassemble every key on my keyboard in correct order and ended up winning a Logitech G19 gaming keyboard and a G500 mouse for my efforts. Score!! I am now the PAX BYOC 2010 filthiest keyboard champion. o_O

    tl;dr I learned I should always be very nice to the Intel Game On lady and that I should never clean my keyboard! :P

    Nothing too spectacular but I got 2 different Portal 2 shirts.
    That and the Gameworks party thing was really awesome, especially with the free food, drink and 2 hours of gaming. I frickin' love Sega for that. And they gave out free zip-up hoodies.

    When my friends and I were walking to the Greene's Hardware Dead Rising 2 thing, we hit the walk signal almost every single time on the way down there, that was cool, however we realised upon approach it looked dumb so we walked back, regretting the whole thing.

    2 of my friends did the 100 XP card thing in the initial swag bag really fast ("speed demon") and got a cool PAX 2010 medal for it. And one of them while in the 343/Bungie panel won a free Windows mobile 7 phone for having a Voyager with a broken hinge.

    My epic moment was Saturday morning. I got into the expo hall and beelined for Portal 2, and my friend and I were in the second group to go in (and the line was wrapped twice around the booth before we went in!). We walk in and sit down, and then one of the guys in the booth comes up to me and we have the following conversation:

    Him: Did you play Portal?
    Me: Yup, finished it!
    Him: Do you know how to use a 360 controller?
    Me: Yup.
    Him: Do you want to help us demo Portal 2?
    Me: YES.

    It might have been because I was wearing my Portal shirt, but whyever it happened, it was AWESOME. :D

    HA!

    That's so funny. I got asked to play as well and as I was standing up taking my messenger bag on, one of the Valve guys said to a girl behind me "Well, you should have spoken up sooner. Too late for you!!". So, I turned around, saw the girls face...she was obviously a bit bummed. I asked her if she *really* wanted to play and she gave me a very enthusiastic nod.

    I said "Go on, then." The Valve guys said "Wow, now that's a nice guy right there." She was very excited and I'm pretty sure I made her day.

    I have every red vs blue DVD. Including the one of the very first batch of Season 1 DVDs (and a second batch version lol)

    I've been going to PAX since 2004 and bringing the DVDs and getting them signed. Red Vs Blue brings different cast members each year, so some of them are LOADED with everyone. So at first it was "wow that's quite the collection of DVDs" and when Joel who plays caboose was going through and signing them, he got to the first edition of Season 1.

    "Wow...this...this is really old."
    "Yeah..."
    "I haven't seen this version in years."
    "Yeah...I've been watching since the early days, around when season 1 was finishing."
    "How old are you?"
    "I'm 22, I discovered the series when I was 15."

    at that point, Joel stood up. Walked over to me, and shook my hand. gave a smile, a nod, and a genuine "thank you. Thanks for supporting the series for so many years."

    I'm not sure if it's because of my obvious dedication to the show with the DVDs, and the large collection of signatures, or if it's my age, or the fact that I've obviously been watching since incredibly early in the series before they were even famous. But that personal, genuine thank you from him - made the weekend for me.

    My husband and I love Steve Jackson stuff and on Saturday spent time trying to find the booth. When we succeeded, we spent some time there chatting with employees and such and then a very nice guy showed up, who turned out to be Steve Jackson himself. When we got married, the centerpieces of the tables at our reception were board games, and we found out people had chosen tables based on which version of Munchkin was there. So we told him the story, and he said we had awesome friends, which pleased us both. And I got a signed one of the Munchkin Cthulhu promo cards.

    More awesome for personal reasons than anything else, but it made me happy.

    Also, everyone who was willing to take photos with the frog we had with us.

    Sitting in the Rock Band freeplay area Sunday afternoon to rest my feet, the people on stage needed someone to sing Free Bird. My hand shot up before I could think about it. It's the second time I've ever played Rock Band (first time was LAST September). I didn't do great on the second verse, but the people I was playing with? ROCKED IT. So much fun. Thanks for the invite.

    Thank you to Mike & Jerry and everyone involved in producing PAX.

    My Friday began pretty decent getting to walk around and scope out the cool swag and which booths I wanted to see. I just missed Wil Wheatons signature line. Later that day some friends and I ducked out for a breather from the expo hall .. and up comes Wilw, Joco, MC Frontalot and their little entourage doing the same thing. Wil leaned on the railling next to me and I was like Hi, I was going to get your sig on my breast but was turned away.

    He smiles, whips out a Sharpe from his utilikilt and quickly got down to business. It was awesome! We posed for a picture and everything, really made my PAX then and there on the spot.

    Then Saturday/Sunday I was in a League of Legends costume as Nidalee and totally got to fanboi it up with the Riot employees there repping their game. I got a signed poster by everyone and got to compete (and lose but it was fun!) in their cosplay game playing tournament. It was epic!

    On Friday and Saturday night I hit up Seattle with friends for drinking and some movie and sushi and I just hadn't gone out much before so that was super special for me too. Really felt like I was HOME all weekend and now am sad to go back to work, blerg!

    The coolest thing that actually happened to me was getting to walk around the con floor with Jerry. It was the third day and I was heading to the Bandland area to get some Protomen CDs when I saw him just talking and taking pictures with folks. I walked up and said "I'm not going to bother you for a picture or anything, I just want to tell you that you are my hero. You, Stephen King and Harlan Ellison are the reasons I want to be a writer and humorist."

    He looked a little surprised to be included in such a list and said "That's great. Walk with me." He asked what "strange nutrient" I derived from his writing that got him held in such high esteem. We talked about hats and pretension and the importance of strong, organizing women in a humorists life.

    Later at the book signing he recognized me and that was cool too.

    But the coolest thing at PAX didn't actually happen to me, but my brother and his fiance. At the first Q&A I asked Jerry and Mike what their feelings on Warren Spector's keynote were, and mentioned that my brother had been hit by a car and been dead a few minutes afterwards the previous year, and still made it to PAX. The duo were very impressed, and talked to him a bit since he was in the front row. Because of their medical badges he and his fiance were able to get in a little earlier and hang around longer at many panels, and many people including Scott Kurtz, Jerry and Mike and Wil Wheaton recognized them and talked to them many times over the weekend.

    I wasn't present for these encounters but hearing my brother talk so excitedly about meeting people who were our childhood heroes and being the happiest I've seen him since the accident was the best thing to come out of PAX. He was a picocelebrity for a few days and I'm glad I could give that to him.

    People knew what my tattoo was of (suicide grunt from halo) and some even wanted a picture of it. (As opposed to real life where theyre askin me if its stitch/transformer/metroid all the time.) It made me happy. I'd give them all hugs if I wasn't in line over the diving ropes half the time.

    Also learned semi sorta how to play wow tcg, and that made me pretty darn tootin happy. Next year.. I want to cosplay. *flex*

    Well, I got hugs from JoCo, Steve Jackson (who is a total sweetie), and Bill Amend, which was amazing.

    I didn't find out about the Fallout New Vegas shirts until they were already out, and I was super bummed. So Sunday I go into Tabletop Freeplay and snag a piece of paper from a guy sitting there so I can make a "WTB New Vegas shirt" sign. After I finish making it, he looks at it and pulls that very shirt out of his bag and I bought it off him. It was amazing, I'm still wearing the shirt and it made my day.

    My friend and I were heading back to our hotel room on Saturday after walking around in our full cosplay attire at the con - we wanted to grab some lunch and drop off some of our stuff before heading to get in line for Acquisitions, Inc. - and someone in the elevator held it for us when we were rushing to get in. We got in there, and I looked up, and did a double-take, and asked, "Are you Wil Wheaton?" all dumbfounded-like.

    He replied, "I might be," and proceeded to tell us that he was on his way over to the con when he realized he'd forgotten his anti-inflammatory medication for his messed up ankle back in his hotel room, and I felt really bad for him. I totally forgot to push the button for our floor, so my friend and I ended up riding up to 30 with him. The best part was when he asked about our cosplay. I told him we were dressed as John and Dave from Homestuck on MSPaintAdventures.com and he told us that our costumes were really badass.

    He had to go so I couldn't get a photo or anything, and I stupid asked if I could shake his hand before he reminded me we're not really supposed to do that any more at PAX. So instead we elbow-bumped and did the Iron Guard salute and I told him we'd see him at the Acquisitions, Inc. panel and he seemed happy to hear it.

    My friend and I then squealed like little girls when the elevator closed. Meeting him in the first place was great, but having him actually call our costumes "badass" was pretty much the best thing ever.

    You should have seen the BYOC/PC free play room late Friday night. That song got blasted at ear splitting levels for about 20 minutes.
    And yes it was awesome!!!!

    For me, what was most awesome was walking the expo hall at 5:30 on Sunday and being able to walk right into the Portal 2 booth. Felt pretty good especially when some people had probably waited more the 2 hours to do the same thing.

    CCP party was effing insane.
    It was at a club that is normally a gay bar, though. So, I'm dancing with chicks and stuff and then I see this dude staring at me. I dance somewhere else and there he is again, standing and staring. He comes up to me and says, "So are you bi-curios at all or totally straight?"
    "Really really straight," I tell him.
    I dance in the other direction and try to get away.
    This happens a few more times. In these occasional brief conversations he also tells me he is the owner of the bar and that I have a lot to offer whatever girl I decided to make babies with one day and that I should stay 'til after the party is over because then a bunch of cute local girls will show up.
    It was weird.

    It didn't happen at pax, but I tweeted Cliffy B saying how awesome it was that they donated so much to child's play and I hoped to meet him one day. He responded back and thanked me, then proceeded to say my picture was hot. That just about made my life haha

    I might have come out of it with a job, which would top everything. A GOOD job.

    Jerry personally welcomed my husband and I to PAX.
    We ran into him in the elevator on our way up to our room Thursday night while we were checking in. It was very cute to see first-hand that he was as excited about PAX as we were. :)

    As i stated in the other thread my run in with Valve and them loving my Companion Cube tattoo. Ended up playing a portion of the demo (three levels of co-op) with a dev from Portal he gave me his business card with a code on the front said to take pics of it and my tattoo and send it to his email on the back. Finally ran into one of the guys that worked on portal 1 (saw him at the Left4Dead 2 booth at paw west 2009) and talked him into giving his laynard to me.
