Chicago 2012: June 14
Thursday morning was fairly uneventful. I enjoyed viewing the memes that fans continued to create and I had a lot of fun interacting with the fans in the chat and on twitter.

C started playing the second game he was going to play at 6pm. It was a race with Trevor, and C ended up playing the Gamecube version while Trevor played the Wii version. It was quite fascinating to watch, because the two versions are mirrored, so when the boys caught up to each other and were in exactly the same place, we could see two versions together, side by side and it was incredibly unique. And then, 2 hours in, Trevor's Wii crashed. :( He started over, and we all felt horrible for him. He saved right before where it had died the first time, and it crashed again. He started up from the save point again, and I think he switched discs? Not sure. He started to close the distance between he and C and got closer and closer, and when he was almost finished.....it crashed again :( That was the end of that.

The game didn't finish until after 4am and I stayed up until that point. Fans had started drawing pictures of staff members, after several of them would pose for a while, and it was fun to see what they came up with.
3 of the boys, including Trevor, had PB&J eating contests, to eat it as soon as possible. That was hilarious.
It wasn't the most eventful day, but it was still a great time.
