I got in and out of both of the registration and the souvenir add-on toy lines in about an hour! Holy crap, that's a huge improvement over last year. Everything seemed to be running much more efficiently. (For example, nobody seemed to be running a line who was over the age of 85.)
Last year I was in line for... six hours? Yeah, six hours. Ahahahaha. Mind, that year's problems were related to the launch of the Revenge of the Fallen toyline, which encouraged folks to take about 30 minutes a piece to look through BotCon's stock of toys once they got up to the front of the line. Imagine going to Walmart and having people shop when they get up to the register. People were certainly doing that this year, but not to the same extremes. 75% of my hour was spent in the second line, even though I was the sixth person from the front of the line. Folks looooove to ask BotCon dudes to bring them every single toy on the shelf one by one so they can look at them. Man, those things are shelfwarming at Walmart! Go buy them there!
But still, only one hour spent in line this year = super awesome

Hey dudes! Jonathan Rosenberg, aka The Guy Who Draws Goats And Whatnot, has a new webcomic! It's called Scenes from a Multiverse, and it involves you, the weirdos of the Internet! See, every week he draws a set of unrelated strips that take place on various worlds, and whichever gets the most votes returns the next week! It's like Web 2.Oh Yeah. Jon continues to be a true visionary, awash in unfettered creativity.
Ten hours left in my spring convention art auction!
And on Wednesday morning, me and my local buds head to BotCon. Shortpacked! veterans know what this means, though this year the usual all-weekend-long convention strips are getting a twist. You'll see.
If you're also going to BotCon, I've decided to be less stupid than I usually manage. Every year I'm met by a few dozen readers wanting to know if I have books for sale! Well, no, I don't have a dealer table at BotCon -- that's be counterproductive to my goal of Totally Geeking It Out 24/7, what with all the panels and whatnot -- but I figgered I'd plan ahead and bring a handful of copies of Shortpacked! Book 3 with me. I plan to have one or two on me at all times. Y'know, be prepared! It's like my backpack will be Shortpacked! Express, like those mini-Pizza Huts at Target. So if you see me out and about, hand me $15 and I'll hand you a Book 3. I'll even scribble in it for you.
