Yay! I look forward to Anime North every year, but now there's AvaCon too. Neat bonus to AN this year!

Sorry Uc - I know in my Christmas letter that I said I might head over to Canada and visit, but on October 6 a hardy band of travellers (I'm the priest/paladin - we have a Dwarven jester (Peter), a Sword Saint (Alex), a Kunoichi (Caroline) and a hitman (Michael) in the party so far)are headed to Japan for 16 days! Woohoo!
That's where my money is goin' this year!

I would be able to make it, but alas, I can't take the time off work, and my bank account is at a very low integer at the moment... oh well.

Hey, I'm like, new and all, but here goes...<P>If Josh comes in here - and even if he doesn't (man, I take a LONG time getting to whatever it is I'm trying to say ^^ <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif">, do you know if he'll be bringing any Avalon swag? I mean, I could use a new maus pad... ^^<P>In the meantime... look for these folk at AN... <a href="http://carnage.fanfic.org">The Cursed Fanboys</a>. They're a group of Toronto-based Otaku who... well... just go to the site.<P>No, this wasn't spam... I'm just incredibly hyped-up for AN and I can't wait to go. ^^<P><P>------------------

Aw, crap... stoopid Cafepress... their prices are exactly why I have yet to buy anything from my favourite webcomics. >_<<P>Original artwork, eh Josh? I wouldn't mention that; folks will have you drawing until your hand falls off. ^^<P><P>------------------

My mind is like a seive. <P>Hehe... I know the feeling... it's going to be interesting to see if I can remember people's names, whether it be their real name or their CF name. ^^;<P>I remember on the one day (which one of the three, I can't remember) I was sitting across from Chaos as he was thinking up new Chaosfics and castings for the Rocky Horror Senshi Show. I distinctly remember suggesting Dr. Frank-N-Fighter and the Chaosfic "Urusaiyajin Yatsura".<P>>Yeah, Mayhem's AN treasurer, I seem him almost every other week at gatherings and club showings and whatnot and I still manage not to pre-reg. Figure that out <P>I was going to register at CN, but I didn't know if I was going to be at AN or not... but then when I told my (then) new girlfriend about AN, she flipped... we've been planning this trip for what seems like forever, but is really only like three months.<P>Hey, has anyone figured out where the unabashed Josh-worshipping will take place? Me and Cambot don't wanna miss it. ^^<P><P>------------------
