The booth was packed with Guild fans. The signing was fun, meet several folks who said how much they enjoy my Twitter feed. And at 5pm I was asked to run the raffle (The Guild was giving away 4 Zune MP3 players). I had Jeff (Vork) and Robin (Clara) pull the names out of Vork's deep fryer. That was a lot of fun. After that there was the cast's final signing. There was a new Cast photo/poster that a fan did for The Guild and I wanted a copy signed by everyone so I did that. I also got a picture with each cast member because I take 1000's of photos of the cast and crew but there are so very few pictures of me on set and none with the cast members. After the signing everyone helped break down the booth and Blizzcon 2009 was over. Jenni and I finished our podcast and she drove me to my car and I headed home.
Tomorrow we got to our new house and start painting.
The house looks completely different empty compared to when it had all the seller's furniture in it. We walked from room to room and check out ever corner.. the walls were a little worse then I remember but luckily we planned on painting everything. After going through everything we then went from room to room and planed out what colors we wanted on the wall and where we want the furniture. It was a lot of fun trying to decorate our home, luckily Harry and I have pretty much the same taste when it comes to paint colors.
We also brought Daisy up for the first time so she could check out her new pad.. not sure she liked it but she'll get use to it. We couldn't say long as I was working The Guild booth later that day in Blizzcon. But we planned to come back tomorrow and start painting.. So we grabbed some lunch and headed home.

I still wouldn't allow myself to get excited. It was a long and hard process and I didn't want to allow myself to be happy until I was holding the keys in my hands.. which will be tomorrow morning at 9am.

I guess they did schedule a notary for 3pm but failed to call me and let me know. Now it's 3:30pm and the escrow company is in Valencia. So I quickly get dressed, wake up Harry who was taking nap and we rush out of the house heading up north. Of course it's Wednesday and I knew there would be traffic and I was told that I had to sign everything by 5pm. So flew down side streets trying to find the least congested route. We arrived at the Escrow company around 4:15pm. Later Harry told me I was driving like a maniac but I got us there in one piece.
We sit down with the Notary, Steve and we start to go through the paperwork. I have to say I was told that this is the most stressful part of the process but after our 90+ days of hell this was the best part. Steve was so funny and we laughed alot. After a half hour we were done.. all the paperwork was signed. All that was left was giving them a cashiers check for our down payment. Luckily there was a BofA down the streets so we quickly went over and pulled out the biggest check I have every given to anyone and went back to drop it off. They were going to try and rush everything through but the loan still needs to go back to BofA for approval, then be recorded with the county register office and then the loan needs to be funded by BofA and only then would we get the keys.. They hope to get all this done in the next two days and we can get the keys on Friday... Here's hoping.
PS.. I was in such a hurry that I left my camera at home.. but Notary Steve took a picture of us and I'm hoping to get a copy of that.

Today The Guild released their AWESOME music video for the general public. "Do You Want to Date my Avatar" I shot all the behind the scenes video for this music video. It was one of the best shot day I have had on The Guild set.
Let's support The Guild by buying the MP3 from Amazon.com http://bit.ly/amazonavatar or the actually video from itunes http://bit.ly/itunesvideo
Being The Guild they also released it for free on You Tube.

After the Guild panel at Comic Con the cast went to sign at the Xbox booth where they were giving out these really cool picture of The Guild cast in their avatar outfits. Of course I grabbed a few for our Knights of the Guild podcast to give away as prizes, large donations and even put one on ebay to raise money for a charity.
Well here is the first chance to get your hands on one of these really nice photos and it's not only autographed by all six of the main cast members (Felicia, Sandeep, Jeff, Robin, Amy and Vince) but I got Tara (Dena), Michele (Riley) and Sean Becker (Director) to sign them as well. So you get nine autographs.
This photo is 11x17
