To inform fans and all those extra kind fans who made a donation for my trip to Paris, France – for the Blizzard Worldwide Invitationals – of what the donations were used for – here is a comprehensive list:
- US Passport + expedite processing fee (tax & money order): $ 136
- US/Europe Foreign Travel Voltage Converter (+tax): $32
- Birth Certificate copy (for the Passport – yea they actually clipped it to the application #$@%): $ 15
- 2×2 Photo at Walgreens: $ 8
Take a few cents in taxes I didn’t count. That rounds it up to $191.
Special thanks to Tekserve Rentals in NYC for sponsoring equipment. That’s the Foreign Travel Voltage Converter for. Thanks to Nethaera for alerting me of getting one of those—otherwise I could have burned the equipment.
If people wishes still to make donations, it will be very appreciated – at least until I resume job searching in July.
Everything looks fine. I’m ready to go. Let’s roll. There is only one thing remaining to go … finding the courage to aboard the airplane. I have tackled Lady Vashj, Kael’thas, and all of Black Temple. So … I will tackle a real life vertigo to airplanes.
I don’t have a Nintendo DS, iPhone or PSP—but I will travel those six hours with two worthy companions: World of Warcraft: Tides of Darkness and Starcraft: The Dark Templar, Shadow Hunters. Courtesy of Pocket Books. Thanks, Marco Palmieri (Pocket Books)
