    On a sorta side note re costuming at Fan Expo I use to do alot but not anymore. A few years ago I opted to do a homage to Styx and there song Mr. Robotte. Before I walked on there were cheers and screams when they music started but once I stepped onto "stage" in a non friendly/kind manner the cheers turned to boos/hisses and shouts of get of the stage by the bulk of the audience.

    I don't remember that skit, when was that?

    As far as Buzz coming out first or second it all goes back to the Gemini program where the mission pilot would do the walks and the commander would take the notes and film.

    When they got to the landings, the LM (Lunar Module) had been designed in a way that the door would flap open from right to left, leaving the pilot stuck into getting out second.

    It really just came out to the way the door opened.

    Now that this is cleared up, back on topic.

    so breakfast on Sunday morning to celebrate the birthday of Amber:

    Edit by CrazyMike: Sorry but Jeannette (Amber) and I will not be able to make breakfast. We will be around
    all day on the Saturday so perhaps we can meet up for lunch or dinner...

    Noooo How dare you.

    Okay so we have to make something for lunch on Saturday.

    OR you all come down to Toronto on thursday evening and throw me a wonderful B-day party too.

    That's right I'll be in town then.

    I won't have much cash for the show so don't count on a uber celebration but we could go out for supper at like... McDonald's or something.

    Seriously, what can we make for lunch that's interesting. Don't we have a kelsey's not too far from the convention center?

    I'll try to spot it on Thursday.

    right now it seems we would be aiming for lunch and I'm guessing (kelsey's I think on the corner street across from the intercontinental) would be a good place to go.

    Then again I'm not from Toronto so I'm open to suggestions
    Criterias are as follow:
    1- a place to sit
    2- a place that could potentially receive 12 to 20 folks at noon.
    3- a place that won't cost 50$ a head. I'm thinking 20 to 30$ max.

    IIRC there is the Loose Moose, Jack Asstors, Casey's and East Side Mario's all a block or two down the street from the convention Center on Front Street. Most are reasonably priced and near enough. As for the number of people that entire section of town tends to be rather busy through the summer regardless of what is going on so with a convention it may be even worse, so in that regard they may not be your best bet.

    Plans for Saturday

    Meet with Crazy Mike and Seb for lunch at east side Mario's. (I'm thinking around noon)
    Seb's cell number: 514-581-JEDI (you figure it out)


    Plans for Sunday

    Meet with Styrofoam and Seb in the lobby of the Intercontinental hotel from where we will pick a location to go for brunch.
