    $30 is chicken feed. I would gladly pay $90/person to attend the Pre-PAX dinner. I make a lot more money than I did last year, and due to my lifestyle, that means I have a lot more disposable income.


    (I hope no one tries to Rick Roll us while we eat.)

    While I'll be ponying up the cash too, I can't say that 30 bucks is chicken feed. I think the ease/difficulty of paying will be dependent on an individual person's income... unless you're paying for us. ;)

    Well, he did say that he'd pay 90 bucks... That's enough for two other people. (dibs!)

    Speaking in general terms... (and not to Aydr directly) if an attractive single female sat next to me during the dinner and/or breakfast, and if she participated in an interesting and entertaining conversation with me I would gladly pay for her meal.

    Basically, I am a sucker for cute single women who don't hate me. And really, who isn't?

    (In regards to the above, I typed exactly what I meant, and I am not inferring or alluding to anything more than what I wrote.)

    Me too. Then came female, and my chances were totally shot. I have been told I'm pretty, though, so I guess I might get partial credit? Up to the grader's discretion, anyway.

    Just wanted to say a big thank you to Electric Turtle for all the work put into planning the evening, and am looking forward to the dinner - would love to be able to meet some folks before PAX as I know I will be feeling awkward and out of place being there with my teenage son (who no doubt will also be feeling awkward being there with his middle aged mom!)
    Am also very stoked about coming to PAX!!

    I think you mean he (she?)'s the worst kind of not-people. From what I hear, he's a cross between a lion and a tiger. And possibly female, if that'll get him/her a free Pre-PAX dinner. Not a bad plan! ;)

    Non-people are the worst kind of people. Look at them, being all not-people and not-faithful in their not-relationships.

    (About last topic: luckily for us, gamer and geek women in general have been on a steady rise here in Spain in the last 10 years or so. They generally are Manganime fans, Boardgame fans and RPG's fans. Sadly, comic fans are the least, along with videogamers).

    While I have seen many many hot, adorable, and quite handsome guys in my years of PAX-going I have yet to see ANYTHING resembling the cast of 300. And I am quite glad of that... as I find beefyness like that extremely unattractive >.>

    Actually I have to agree - while I enjoyed 300 for the eye candy of Gerard Butler, my preferences have always been the Pete Townshends/Jimmy Pages/Joe Perrys of the band (sorry dated myself there) - so I guess I have to say I prefer cute geeky boys too!
    Am looking forward to Pax for the young energy more than anything else - I work in the thrilling world of high finance banking, so the old rocker chick side of me really digs the gaming industry...................8-)
