3pm- Kill time in the Great Hall with a lot of the other Cosplayers, having a general Mêlée style photo shoot… everyone trying to take pictures of each other, as respective people hide their cameras momentarily… until the FF Cosplayers of Sephiroth and Aerith start pretending that Aerith is injuring Sephiroth, and everyone wants to take pictures of this… thus photo shoot turns into an injuring Sephiroth photoshoot… when (s)he (the cosplayer was female) lays dead on the ground with a Tonberry (sp?) on her(his?) back.

10pm- Go to Anime Dance… Dance a little after about 20 min, but then sit down again, all tired… watch everyone else dance… take pictures of Sephiroth bellydancing… cause it looks sorta funny since she’s dressed as a guy, but bellydancing, with Fans… Enjoy music, and half Nap.

12am- Sign up for Karaoke, and sing “Yakusoku wa Iranai” which is the Themesong to Escaflowne, Sung from Hitomi’s POV, by Hitomi’s Voice Actress… so yeah… I was dressed as Hitomi… why not?

Genericon is the Annual Anime/Sci-Fi/Fantasy Con Held at My College… it’s really a nifty affair, and though I skipped out on it last year… this year I decided to go… and I even cosplayed!

The Great MoTS Mishap

Well that was… Interesting to say the least… for a good 6 days or so all of the Mall of the Sims, went down… we hadn’t heard form our ‘new’ webmaster yet, after the old one stepped down… so we all evacuated to an EZ Board… yeah…

So I decided to put up my creations here on my site, so that they are not lost to the public when if (when?) it gives up the ghost for good. So I did that… and did some more research for my B5 Story, “The Butterfly” and things and so now that’s back underway… I’ve actually got all the way up though chapter 3 of book 2 in hard copy, but in ligh of new information that’s gonna have to be… scrambled or something… yeah…

So now I got my B5 door to work on… lalalala… that’s gonna take a while… *Sighs.* And I got to finish getting the site up… tis to darn cold to go all the way across campus to the scanners so the whole Juanita thing is going to have to wait for a while… besides which every time I try and draw her small it stinks… I think I’m just gonna draw the strips over big and shrink em with the PC… la…

So… I have work that needs doing and things that need doing and things that… uh… I have to do… so I’m gonna go do that now, but I thought I’d check in and let you all… (Who all? Does anyone even read this?) know what’s up…

Yeah… maybe something more profound later… about Eva… yeah… I been watching Evangelion again. I’m a nutter… oh yesh…
