World's lowest car for sale

Dude, where's my corpse?

NOOOOO! Why God, why?

And Satan beats kids

Ah, the relentless march of capitalism. Got to figure out what to do with this newfound cash. There's a couple of concerts I'd like to see, a new hard drive and video card, and this infamous SGTW con. Yes, folks, I'm planning on relenting my ardent distaste for synthpoop. There's some bands I'd actually like to see live, not to mention it's a great excuse for a vacation in Toronto. 4 days isn't that long, but I think it should prove rather fun. It's cheaper than our previous plans of Chicago, even with the nasty ticket price, and it guarantees we won't end up sitting around in the hotel, wondering what to do next, like we did in NOLA. I can do it without flushing what savings I've got, but I feel strange dropping that kind of fundage, even if I did technically earn most of it. I think I just have to swallow my self-reliant pride, break down, and buy some tickets. I need to make sure the booful lady concurs before I drop the cash for the tickets, though. Oh yeah, and the other thing. Sara, what hotel are you guys planning on staying at?
FFX has become a bit annoying. Basically, all I have left to do is the sidequests, most of them are deathly tedious. Still haven't acquired some of the things I need (skills like Ultima and Doublecast, legendary weapons, lost aeons), I guess I'll buckle down and at least do those. Of course, some of those require good, old-fashioned "go here/get this/take it here/use it on this/take that/take it here/give it to her/fight him/take that other thing kind of monotony, always referring back to the strategy guide. I do have to hand it to Square for putting the guide online, though, makes my life easier.
I still have to buckle down and get my CCNA.

ROCK!!! I'm so excited that you might come! I need witnesses! ;-)

I'm pretty sure they're just putting us up at the Palais Royale, where the actual event is. It's not confirmed, but that was the original intention expressed to us by the powers that be.

Wouldn't miss you becoming a real rockstar!

And anyway, this venue is a hotel as well? All the info I can find on it is limited to it's dance hall.

Re:

The Palais Royale is a hotel, as far as I know. The concerts / DJing is in the huge ass dance hall in the hotel, which is rumored to be huge.

It'd have to be to fit 1,000 people and a stage big enough for A23... Wacky. I'm looking at "The Grand Hotel Toronto", seems pretty slick for the price. They don't have a website or something, do they?

Re:

The originalest post about this event ever can be found here. Now that I re-read it, I'm not so sure the P.R. is a hotel. Their link is broken, of course.

And the official event website doesn't list hotels yet. Slackers.

I don't think so either, and it looks like the P.R. website is down, too. Dunno, if they tell you where you two snazzy g33k heroes are going to get stuck, let me know.
