Got my copies of Yokiaden 2 in today.

San Diego Comic-Con 2009 was my very first Comic-Con. I had always wanted to go — especially since I used to attend Anime Expo every year with friends — but my usual congoing group didn’t feel the same way. Since I’ve stopped going to Expo, I decided to make it my goal to attend in 2010…that is, until Murder He Wrote got nominated for an Eisner. No part of me thought we would win (I compared our chances of winning to the chances of a wacky slapstick comedy winning Best Picture at the Oscars when up against epic profound war movies and arthouse films); however, I didn’t want to miss the once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the ceremony and hear my name announced as one of the nominees. And so I opted to go this year instead, prepared for my first major award loss.
Little did I realize then how incredible the trip would be!
Thanks to everyone who donated to the AIDS Walk for Life. I raised $500 and ended up getting a sweet pin with “$500” on it and a free T-shirt (apparently everyone who raised over $100 got one).
The walk was 10km (about 6.2 miles?) around Stanley Park‘s famous sea wall. I don’t get much sun these days as I’m usually working in my tiny windowless room (which my friends have affectionately dubbed “a closet,” “the cave” and “your cell”), so it was a good opportunity for me to go out and enjoy our 15 million degrees Celsius nuclear reactor in the sky.
Here are some not-so-exciting photos I took during the walk on my camera phone. The quality’s not the greatest, but I kind of like how gritty they look — looks like they were shot on film, almost.
