To-Do list...  
Finish off work week over the next 5 hours. Celebrate.

Pick a very short song and figure out footage to use for an AMV that I can create during my AMV 101 panel. Set it all up.

Clean out car somewhat.


Figure out if there will be video conferencing between the Chinese New Year's parties in Sunnyvale and at Anime Los Angeles. If so, figure out how. I'm thinking one of these could be added onto my Verizon bill briefly, without getting locked into a 1- or 2-year contract, for connection on the Sunnyvale end.

Figure out when I'm leaving for the con, and where I'm staying before Friday.

Paint over the black and blue portions of Honda Tohru that have flaked off of my anime car.

Drive 517 km.

At Anime Los Angeles (preliminary schedule here:

* Show off anime car.

* Give AMV 101 panel. Hopefully actually show the basics of how it's done. Create more competition.

* Do Fantasy in Anime panel with Ed Hooper (who I've sort-of known for years) and Fred Patten (anime fan extraordinaire).

* Do Science Fiction in Anime panel with Ed Hooper, Fred Patten, and Hiroaki Inoue, co-founder of Gainax.

* Pass out fliers for Condor, the con in San Diego in March where I'm running the anime room.

* Throw Chinese New Year's party. Enjoy. Stay up too late. Wake up, hang out some more, and drive home.

So, what am I forgetting? :)

Sure. Or, since it's small enough, I can keychain it.

Your car flaked???!!!!!

Doh, thought I told you. Yeah, just a bit of standard black and blue, none of the fancy mixed colours, thankfully!

Now I need to decide whether to drive down Wednesday or Thursday...

Hopefully the anonymous one was you. :)
Rachel is leaving for Anime L.A. on Friday morning with her boyfriend Chuck, so you'll have to actually go to the con, or at least Van Nuys, to see her.

Your couch and company and kitties are nice...

Sounds like fun. I considered making the trip myself, but I'll be going to Last Guest Con in Seattle to say goodbye to the historic (fannishly speaking) Sea-Tac Radisson. Please convey my best wishes to Fred (I contributed some money toward his medical fun) and to Inoue-san. Have a good time!

Will do. Maybe you can come next year! It's a lot of fun.

I was thinking that you should meet up with me before you leave, I'll give you the fan your honda a/c needs, and you can meet up with John and have him install it.

Instead, I may give it to Rachel to bring down, if I remember. If not, John will be up here sometime soon, and we can get your a/c fixed then.

I could meet up with you pretty much wherever. I'll be heading down today or tomorrow, while Rachel will be heading down Friday morning.

Figure out if there will be video conferencing between the Chinese New Year's parties in Sunnyvale and at Anime Los Angeles. If so, figure out how.
Any simple webcam via MSN will do the trick. Would you need to use that wireless card to get GPRS or something like that? Doesn't the hotel have wifi and/or internet?

I know Yahoo Messenger will work too, but I haven't tried it much.
The Sunnyvale side would have been at a community room in an apartment complex, which seems to only pick up a few WEPed signals.

Unfortunately, the scheduling of my friends who were going to throw the party up here fell through with their moving date, so there's no need for now.

I will have a video conferenced party some day.
