Man some of you guys work at some Evil places. I have never had a job that does not find a way to get some one to cover for me if I am going on vaca or something of the sort.

My job is good with working around a person's hours. I'm just not making enough money to go. I'm dirt poor for the next few months. That, and my family needs someone to watch the dog while THEY go on vacation. Pshh. :evil:

Whew, it's going to be a tight squeeze for me...I checked today and I have $400 saved for A-kon which is going to have to cover two at the door tickets and two nights at a hotel (obviously not the AM or Westin) I think gas and meals I can pay for out of my usual budget, but it's still going to be a stretch. I don't think I'll be able to get as much at the dealer's room as I'd wanted.

Just remember *wear the strap and don't let go* I have a wii myself and one of my friends ened up throwing it at my bedroom door cause they did not have the strap on. *lets just say I got 5 controllers at the momment because of that incident.* :D
Other than that it is a great multiplayer system and I hope you bring Rayman, that game is awesome for watching other people play.

yes....but...jokerwolf told me that the hotel charges extra if you hook up something to the TV set. I find that stupid. Jokerwolf will explain more since she was the one that asked.


i'm going to be very busy this week and next. So I won't be online as much. Memorial day is next Monday. I know I'll be putting in lots of overtime. I still need to get some stuff packed for A-kon.

If I do bring it, (dont want someone paying extra because of me) I would bring all my games: Rayman, wii sports, excite truck, zelda, and farcry. I might get monkey ball before then but we will see.

Has anyone else got Pre-registration tickets?

Since I'll be there thursday..I want to get them on thursday night instead of Friday morning.

Pre-registration starts Thursday night at 6:30 (this is where people who are pre-registered pick up their convention badge & materials).

Indeed!! Both me a Z got ours so we'll prollie do that thursday too..


OMFG!! I just called the hotel an NOW they are saying some crap about you having to order another TV from them..WTF?! Also they said it would be $150 PER DAY!!! When I first called a few months back they said 75..Ugh I'm not not going to give them anymore money..Forget the dvd player..I'll just watch TV we already have..This is sad seeing how much you already pay for your room. Just think, if you weren't going there for a-kon the rooms would be $225 an up instead..geez..they try to break you don't they? :P

Bunch of theives :roll:

Anywho, I'll be leaving for TX Thursday morning; so I guess I'll be their sometime in mid-late afternoon. It'll be on a night of a full moon, thats gotta be a good sign right there :D

OK, a lil warning...if I'm being quite, its not because I'm being a stuck-up a**, but because I can get shy :P :) So if I get like that, your going to have to forgive me :wink:

Btw, are we supposed to get anything in the mail from the Akon people? I got nothing so far...Should I be worried?

You said it.

If they could get away with it, I bet they'll charge extra for breathing thier air. :roll:

And add an air contamination fee for farting. :lol:

Not to worry. A duckie will be heading your way if I see a little bit of shyness. :wink:

wait....did you order the tickets online? Did you get a conformation e-mail? If so...print that out. THATS what you need to get your A-kon pass.

Paypal was acting weird for me, so I sent in my pre-reg stuff in via snail-mail. That was about two months ago or so. The only email I got from them was 'Welcome to the akon-updates mailing list!' message.

Only 2 months ago? Ouch that might be cuttin it too close..Many folks do the snail mail thing so they have alot to go through...Hmm..but seeing you got the welcome e-mail I would think you did get the info via email. Have you checked ur bulk box? It could have been sent there. Also if not send them an email an see if they can't resend it..To me that just seems like it happened. Or tell them you never got the comformation email an hopefully they can do this quick an easy..Time is too short for any delays :(
