PAX COME BACK!!

Xenocide GeekXenocide Geek Registered User regular
edited November 2004 in PAX Archive
You know, here we were anticipating PAX, waiting for it come...

watching the days count down...

now it's over, and I can't help but feel as if I could have done more - but the thing is, I -really- couldn't have, other then meet more people. But I really did meet TONS of people, and I'm not a very social person. I would really have liked to meet more of the forumers.

Even now I read these threads weeks later, and I want PAX to come back. :(

Edit: I'm sure other people must feel this way about PAX. I think my biggest regret is not getting farther in the PC tournaments, but next year, if LPNW shows up, they're going fucking down.

i wanted love, i needed love
most of all, most of all
someone said true love was dead
but i'm bound to fall
bound to fall for you
oh what can i do

    It wasn't just PAX. It was the parties, people and dorktastic atmosphere. Seeing Hero in the same theater as Tycho ("Wang!!!"). Hiking all over Bellevue in search of food. Playing spot the geek in the Doubletree lobby.. Debating internally as to whether or not I should hit on those underage girls in the Doubletree lounge :twisted: ... right before their mothers showed up with a security guard :evil:.

    'Twas the most fun I've ever had with my clothes on.

    Maybe I will. Maaaybe I will.

    But probably not, considering I went to that CS tournament and CoD with almost a year each of not playing.

    The only practice I had was probably a few days prior to PAX, when I played for a few hours of CS 1.6(I'm a 1.5 guy), and maybe an hour of CoD.

    I plan on boning up on my CS and CoD playing atleast a month in advance, if they're going to hold those two tournaments again.

    edit: And in response to Red Machine D, I fucking wholeheartedly agree, god damn. That was so much fun it hurt.

    I just read on the site that JK2 is played there... if any JK2 saber duel tournaments are held(no force), I'll be there.

    I was awesome at saber dueling.

    If anybody ever played on the Darkside servers, AIM, or Worms... I went by Nemesis or the Geek. Sometimes with the clan tag HoC.

    A wise sage advised me that I could have the most fun experience in a group of people from all over the nation if I found the morose motherfuckers from Phoenix, AZ. This sage has given me very good advise, because as it would happen, SnowGhost lives in AZ and the above-mentioned exploits were all true, even those underage girls in the Doubletree lounge, and especially the security guard that gave him a dirty look. The part that sucked about that was wandering around Bellevue in search of food, and arriving at each point on the map after it had closed. By the time we got back around, the Subway we were initially looking at had closed. Seems like D found the party and we got assed out.

    He didn't start staring daggers until after he found out how old I am. For those of you who didn't meet me at PAX, with a fresh shave, I look 16... barely. Which was all good and well until the oldest girl asked her mother, standing next to Mr. rent a cop, "guess how old he is?" That and the fact that I asked them if they rolled when the subject of ecstasy was brought up. And I used the term "vibrator" in front of the youngest girl. Did I mention that she's 11? Because she is. Then, when their mothers were in the club dancing together, I inquired as to whether or not they were touching each other. The youngest girl, the aforementioned 11-year-old, answered quite innocently that they were...

    Then I asked if they were kissing.

    When she squealed I knew it was time to leave.

    Seriously, he's not overexaggerating or anything, he really said all that in the presence of an 11-year-old girl. I was at this point furiously blushing as I just /waited/ for something bad to happen. I was quite literally in utter disbelief that SnowGhost had the /balls/ to do that. Personally, I like this story a lot more than his trek across the 405, but perhaps the trek across the 405 should have happened that night, because the only time I got food all weekend was midday at the Subway. I think Spider of ih8u productions remembers this. The Subway with very little bread.

    Not to be a total assfuck, but there was no need to wait. The bad thing was happening right in front of you. If I'd been there SG would have been trying to pry his face out of the plaster.

    Well yes, I do apologize, that should probably be clarified a little more. I was waiting for some negative legal recourse to be taken, such as the security guard kicking him (and me as a possible accessory) out of the hotel. It would be an equally effective "negative legal recourse" if you laid down some face to plaster interactions, but I really don't take physical action...ever. If anyone saw me move, oh yeah, it was a sight.

    If you had been there you'd have been laughing your ass off, as I was at the time. And it wasn't as bad as it appears in print. I thought the two eldest girls, 15 and 16 respectively, were older. They thought I was younger. I never hit on them. They brought up the subject of controlled substances..

    Ok, I did use the term vibrator in front of an 11-year-old girl... but it slipped my mind that she was standing directly next to me at the time. I made a halfhearted attempt to apologize after dropping the V bomb. The oldest girl laughed incredulously and proclaimed that the youngest already knew what vibrator meant. And in my defense, at the time the offending term was used, I was completely fixated on the 16-year-olds old school metal braces... hawt!

    And the subtle questioning of their mothers sexuality.. yeah... I hit the 11-year-old with that point-blank.
