Okay, we made it to Boston for PAX East. The city holds a very special place in my heart because thirty-four years ago, I immigrated to the USA in this city straight from Thailand. Talk about culture shock. I had never worn a coat or shoes, and when I left Thailand, temperatures probably measured in the 90s or so. I arrived in Boston in February, during a blizzard. WHEE! I bet that was fun for my parents.
We lived in Boston until we moved to Kentucky in the early 80s. No one had heard of Thailand at that point because Thai food hadn't become popular yet. All my new little friends in Kentucky thought that my Boston accent was an "oriental" one. They kept asking me where I was from, and I always replied Boston. They never seemed very happy with that answer.
I can't wait to get started. We set up our booth tomorrow. I've got fun swag, and some of our players are stopping by to see us. Also, a buddy from CoX will be attending. I'm going to see if I can hit some of the booths early tomorrow to grab some swag. My top priorities include PopCap's PvZ booth, Riot Game's League of Legends booth, and checking out some new friends including the people who made Soda Drinker Pro. I'll keep you guys posted!
P.S. We are booth #785. Please stop in to see us!
