Actually, my real blog is at http://athenadiaries.blogspot.com
I'm using this to write opinions and reviews of places in this area that most people who read my blog wouldn't care about.

I posted a short summary
at Ani-nouto. Pretty good. I forgot to mention, the lady who ran the Immersion panel was a big fan of Azuma, which had been panned in my comments and in other DCF threads for bad smell, poor service, etc. Go figure.

The new Albuquerque anime convention "Otakumex" opens today in Embassy Suites. I'm thinking if I should go. Their websive (http://www.otakumex.com/) bears the tell-tale marks of disorganization (e.g. no panel schedule), which drive me away. Heck it does not even say when the registration is open. But what's a man to do. I don't want to drive to LA for AX. I suppose I may check it out tomorrow, see what a small-town con is like. Maybe it's fuzzy and homely, who knows.
UPDATE: I was… Continue

For reasons that will remain my own I wanted to spend at least part of this lovely day, early in September on my own. Leaving the house at the uncharacteristic hour of nine, I began my morning with breakfast at the Chocolate Bakery and Café’. I did not take a photograph at the café’ as the usually cheerful and friendly mood of the restaurant was spoiled by a young man (employee) with a sad little “I am hip beard-let” skulking about the… Continue

What is with this obsession with the name make-over of converting Albuquerque into 'Burque"? Is it an attempt to make it more hip? With it? Is Albuquerque too old, too stogy or just not cool? I've heard "Burque" described as the insecure middle-school bully making up a threatening nickname for himself.
Albuquerque is a challenge to spell and it takes up a lot of space...but hey, it's the name of the city and it is unique. What's with the need to change it and shorten it so it looks… Continue

The sounds and taste of a perfect cappuccino have been attacking my thoughts. What caused this you ask? Well it was a story of Amy Ferraris’, a filmmaker and cappuccino lover, who recently finished a documentary on the perfect cappuccino. She traveled the United States to quench her obsession. It was on her… Continue

There's a reason I don't go to very many first run movies and when I do, I go to the matinee. There is no matinee at the state fair. With a $9 adult admission price, I have to choose my days carefully. Right now, the first ever Bluegrass Day on opening Friday looks pretty cool. Local heroes such as the Saltine Ramblers

I have my Google Alerts set on many topics but obviously one is set on fat & obesity. I get a daily alert with between 20 -30 articles from across the internet that speak to fat as a subject. So it’s a topic that’s not going away. Over the past 6 months at least 1 article read like a campaign speech and it’s made me physically sick on more than one occasion. It has become a practice on insanity to listen to this rhetoric.
Lawmakers in many states believe it is a good idea to ban… Continue

No one wants anyone to GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL without passing GO

Albuquerque developer and man-in-the-news, Jason Daskalos, will go to jail for TWO DAYS
. 13 of his vehicles will get the boot
for a time.

Albuquerque's nearby village is presenting the first in a series of seminars about the arts — from painting to music to growing to the healing arts.
This first event is called “Purchasing Original, Affordable Art" and they want to invite some Duke City Fixers. This event is by invitation only, and Fixers are invited.
The seminar will cover many aspects of art buying, from casual purchasing to serious… Continue
