The Awake Chocolate Fanfest 2013 Project

Random ideas hit me. They fall from the sky in a cascade of sparkling irregularities. Often times, they do not make sense. Yet, if the giggle factor is high enough I may try to implement them.
Welcome to my Awake Chocolate Project for Fanfest.
Last week, while swinging through one of the local gas stations I noticed Awake Chocolate bars. Chocolate bars that said they had a cup of coffee worth of caffeine inside of them.
How interesting. I thought about it. I left. I returned. I got one. It wasn’t bad.
The other day I was again at that gas station and I thought, “Wouldn’t it be funny if I gave out these chocolate bars at fanfest?” I went home and discovered that it is still mostly a Canadian thing. Per their website there is no distributor near me. Yet, here they are in my local gas station.  I could not order them from Amazon. I could not order them from anywhere.
Today, I went and made friends with the store manager. “I have a project I need help with,” I told him. Now he has ordered me two boxes. One of the caramel filled and one of the solid chocolate. I also purchased the full box they had there and a stack of the caramel filled they had left.
Now I just have to smuggle it all into Iceland. I am thinking of making cute labels to put on them for fanfest. My creativity and amusement are quite high at the moment. All told I should have around 60 bars to hand out unless I suddenly find the mother lode.
Some sugar from Sugar type of thing.
Should be fun.

    1. I came up with what I hope is a giggletastic idea that will be a hit :)

  3. You're Canadian? Holy! I would not have guessed.

    When I saw the photo of those bars, I said to myself "I've seen those up at the local Choices in New West." I did not know they were Canadian. I'm not much of a chocolate person.

    1. As I said on twitter, nope. One of the service stations down here has them. I convinced the manager to order me a box of each and they should be in on Sunday he says. That will give me just over 3 boxes so around 60 bars to pass out. Hopefully people want them and I don't have to drag them back home or stash them around CCPs office.

  4. Duty free limit for gifts to Iceland is 10.000 ISK.
    That's roughly 1/50.000th of a PLEX which converts to 15 US$ which is...

    Oh wait. Wrong currency converter...

    1. I just checked a converter and I should be right under the limit. :) RMT FTW!!

  5. I have my own "boosters" I'll be bringing along, send me a "pssssssst" while you're there and we'll trade. I call dibs on the caramel. ;)

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

Maybe one day!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio
