First Time at Dave and Busters

Last weekend, we attended a special Otakon meeting, a staff get-together for staff in the Philadelphia area. Small, informal regional meetings been a tradition every April for several years now. This time, it was organized by one of the people who headed Gofer Ops in 2010, someone who once worked under me as a Gofer when I was a lieutenant in Registration. I finally got a chance to upload the photos.

Also, if you're interested, I wrote a short story based on the experience.

(NOTE: Just because I don't use a name for someone doesn't mean I don't know who they are. I just haven't developed nicknames for everyone I know, since I tend to reserve them for those who get repeat mentions.)

Dave and Busters Meeting
We met at Dave and Busters for the April meeting/get-together
for Philadelphia area staff. And yes, that's
a converted pool table we're sitting around!

Ready to Go
Despite getting over a head cold, our Kung Fu Panda
was in great spirits.
He loves to meet new people.

Alternate View of Group
I tried to get everyone who was there, so I took this second shot,
but I might have missed some folks.

Hat Origami
One staffer showed off her origami skills
by fashioning hats out of napkins.

Origami Makeover
This staffer is wearing an origami napkin hat
and a napkin beard.

who planned the meeting.

KFP and Friends
KFP is quite the ladies' man, as you can tell
from the fact that they tend to gather around him.

KFP and the Plushie

You know it's not a serious meeting when you meet in a video arcade.

Oh god that's a dorky pic of me >.< *wince* KFP always looks great though, and it was so much fun to see you guys!

I thought you looked cute, and KFP is so happy with you.

I'm just convinced that I don't photo well, but thank you. ^^

KFP is a sweetie! I like holding him and playing with him. Can't wait to see how he grows up.

*is firmly in the "I'm gonna be an aunt/mentor-type" when it comes to kids. Love playing with other people's, including yours!*

There are advantages to being able to hand them back when they cry.

Heh, crying doesn't scare me. Not really--as I've babysat for sick and crying children before. It's more that I'm well aware of what my tolerance is, for being 'motherly'.

But KFP is a sweetheart and I adore him. *happy to be one of the many watchers-over-him*

Also, good short story. (You are totally NOT a dinosaur, and you are indeed cool.)

Thanks. That's nice to hear. KFP is easy to love. So sweet-natured!
