PAX PAX PAX PAX PAX!
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages, the Washington State Trade and Convention Center presents: The greatest exposition in the world!
The Artist Jonathan Gabriel!
The Writer Tycho Brahe!
The Penny. Arcade. EXPO!!!
I have to say, guys and girls, that I have never been so excited for PAX. I mean, I’ve certainly never been not excited at the prospects of spending 3 days in geek nirvana and being around people just like me and you, but this year I have never felt more excited. It’s almost better than sex. Almost.
But then again, one may actually receive sexings at PAX as detailed here, if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t mind a total sausage fest.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, marks the start to my PAX weekend. So here’s some things Id like to point out for you guyses that are coming:
- Be on the lookout for the Cookie Brigade; They are selling cookies and candies and other assorted goodies, and all proceeds go straight to Child’s Play, Penny Arcade’s proprietary charity that helps sick and dying kids in hospitals around the country feel a little better with toys and games. So if you’re hungry, jonesing for a snack, and feel like being a little charitable, be sure to hit them up! They’ll be everywhere!
- Wear comfortable shoes! Combat boots and high heels are no fun when walking around and being on your feet all fucking day. Sorry for the F-Bomb there Deejay, it had to be said. And I know from experience.
- Handshakes and fistbumps are fun, but last year taught us that Swine Flu is not fun. Penny Arcade is advising that we assume the “Iron Guard Position“
- If you’re about the expo hall, be on the lookout for me! I’d love to shoot the shit with you, crack a joke about Apple products, or write my name on something of yours if you’re so inclined. I’m not exactly a celebrity, so why you jackals would want my autograph is beyond even my realm of understanding…
Can’t wait to see you guys there!
