Geek Trip of Awesome #1 - PAX Australia Part One

PAX was amazing!
The train was crowded.
We stood in line for about an hour in dizzly rain.

Then we got in!
It was amazing!
Very well organised.
The Expo Hall was full of all sorts of awesome.

The Indie Game Showcase was amazing!
We played so many awesome games.
And collected lots of swag!

I apologise because I didn't take very many photos

Here are some of the photos I took.


Empty XBox One stand!
It said "Come back soon"
I walked past 10 times and everytime it was empty!

Who parked this here???

The League of Legends stage was always packed.
They had people playing
Behind the screens vids
Animator showcases!
It was excellent (never played League of Legends)

New Zelda game is due out. It's one of the older titles redone :)

We only spent 2 of the 3 days there.
We decided not to go on Sunday
Which was good because we spent the day relaxing.

Stay tuned for PAX Australia Part Two: Swag
and the continuing Geek Trip of Awesome

What A Week!!!

What a week!
And it's only going to get even busier.

First off, I don't know if I mentioned the job interview I went to.
Well... I GOT THE JOB!
A full time Childcare job!

I start when I get back from my holiday!

Which starts Thursday! I can't believe that this weekend I'll be on the other side of the country!
It's such a long way away. 
PAX is going to be freaking awesome.
I'm going to try and just 'go with it'
and not get stressed etc.

Tomorrow I PACK!
I have done a test run, but I don't want to forget anything!
So tomorrow I pack for real.
And charge all my bits and bobs (laptop, DS, Camera etc.)


I'm excited and scared about my new job.
Starting any new job is scary, but I've never had a full time job before
and this one involves LOTS of RESPONSIBILITY!
I'm looking after peoples Children!
But I will think about when I get back from my trip.

Now I will think about:
Taronga Zoo
Awesome things!

Stay tuned!

Adventure Time is amazing.

You either do or you don't.
But the people that don't just don't understand how the people that do, do :)

I'm currently downloading FEZ.
It's a game I've been waiting to play for AGES!
And it's finally available on PC.


Bob's Burgers
I'm watching it slowly.
Not sure if I like it yet.
I'm 3 episodes in.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
aka Jamie Lannister
He's so handsome, and funny (not as Jamie... well yeah!)
I wish Jamie wasn't madly in love with his sister
and fell in love with Brienne of Tarth... I ship that!

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
It's amazing!
I don't care what anyone says!
I'm getting hours of enjoyment from it.

Anyway! Time to play FEZ!
