Confession? I didn’t actually take that SEPTA bus. I live way too close to the park. In fact, the woman getting on the bus yelled at me because I was in her way. Sorry dear, but this photo had to be taken. Mostly for Colin Weir.
So after hurricane Irene finished with Philadelphia, we were left with a lot of water and some wonderfully cool weather. I also had the day off due to moving my vacation. Quirk has some key titles dropping next week (Bedbugs & Cookiepedia!), and I couldn’t bring myself to leave. The only logical thing to do… was run around Rittenhouse Square Park in my Master Chief armor.
And read the Wall Street Journal, of course.
A few months ago, when I took the armor out for its first test run, I only made it a few blocks with my pal Linzy. This time, my buddy Britt (the same one who made those beautiful paintings for me) and I made it all the way to the park. I thought I was going to pass out, but we made it. It is a lot easier to handle the suit when I’m at a convention, stopping every two feet to take pictures with people.
While wandering the area, we even stopped at Parc. They offered us a table, but I can’t sit down in this thing.
The highlight though, was during our walk, we were spotted by a camera phone wielding Philebrity reader, and promptly made the blog. Easily one of the funniest titles I’ve seen on the site in a long time. Well done Joey. Well done. And thank you Sean Blanda, for giving me the heads up.
Anyhow, lots of new pics on the ol’ Flickr. I’ll be posting them to the Spartan 215 tumblr over the next few days as well. Thanks Britt for taking the time to stroll with me. Best Cortana ever.
Update: Technically Philly wrote a little blurb about my adventures. Thanks Chris!
