Oooh! Now you too can own actual video footage of an alien encounter! Really! It’s on eBay, so it must be true! And the video only costs $1.3M. For the first bid, y’know.

Here’s the auction. Including a puff of smoke that’s actually a “preSumer Naggas.” There’s a role-playing scenario in here somewhere, I just know it….

[SUMO Mobile Suit]

Okay. I’m feeling better today, thanks to the support of my Monday Group last night.

Katsucon was indeed fun. I bought a bunch of DVD’s cheaply at the Dealer’s Room, as well as models of the Turn-A Gundam and SUMO Mobile Suit from Turn-A Gundam. Until recently, I never saw any appeal in models, but after trying out a 1/144 scale Wing Gundam model and discovering the amazingly high level of detail and articulation in these models — and how easy they were to assemble to a former Lego Maniac like myself — I’ve begun appreciating the attraction.

I watched the first two episodes of Tenchi Muyo! GXP, which I enjoyed. The series has a wonderfully absurd sense of humor as it follows Seina, a young man with literally the worst luck ever. The show manages to keep this funny without turning it into a painful cliche.

And AWANA is going well. I’m becoming more familiar…hmmm. As I write this, I realize that my comments will make little sense without an explanation of the organization of the AWANA club. Perhaps I’ll write that another time. Suffice to say that I am easing into my duties, and finding ways to accomplish them well.
