Almost there...

We wandered out this morning, bumped into Pete Vilmur and Bonnie Burton of Lucasfilm Online in the lobby, and ended up joining them for breakfast. John had a great Banana crepe, and we split a desert that resembled a donut topped with ice cream. Not too shabby, this Japanese food.

Afterwards we headed over to the convention center to pick up our badges and check on our stuff. We met up with Japanese artist Tsuneo Sanda and his family, who have been instrumental in helping coordinate our getting goods in and out of Japan. All books and posters were present and accounted for, although absent from the show ordering posters. Good thing we had appropriately set our expectations. With some help of our Japanese friends, we'll be creating some signs for our booth in the artist's area (and have copies of the book and poster on display).

We're back in the hotel room relaxing for a bit, waiting for some of our other friends to arrive.

One other quick note - came across a berry flavored KitKat at a convenience store, and it wouldn't be worth noting if it didn't taset exctly like Frankenberry cereal. Good stuff!
