So. Life punched me in the face over the past couple weeks. I don't really want to talk about it but I've been stressed like crazy, ugh.

In brighter news, Korey and I had a nice Valentine's Day. We went to an Irish restaurant and a Harry and the Potters concert.

Now how about another post of that meme?

Day 02 – Your first love )

So, a few things have happened since Korey and I celebrated our anniversary. Mostly good things. I did break up with my girlfriend, though. It just wasn't working out romantically anymore, there's no animosity between us. Aside from that, I've been busy with classes and with events and the like. My friend Rob had me and some other people over to marathon all 3 of the extended versions of the Lord of the Rings movies, which was fucking awesome. I made a new friend while I was there, too. Then, a couple weeks ago mom and Korey both came to visit and we all went to see Joshua Bell and the Cleveland Orchestra in concert. It was, of course, incredible. Then this weekend has been fucking great. There's an annual PRIDE film festival going on. I worked as an usher for it on Thursday and Friday night, which got me into the films free (not that it mattered since I also bought a pass) and a free shirt (which is extremely cool). Whoever designed the shirts is awesome because the deal is that it has the film festival's logo on the back, and the front is blank. At the festival, though, there was an iron on station where you could pick which icons you wanted. Mine has three bi icons in a diagonal line and it looks really cool. I made new friends at the festival, too. Also, unfortunately technical difficulties forced them to stop the movie before it was done, but the Swedish film Kyss Mig is extremely impressive. One of the main characters is actually bi and it's actually handled really well.

Last night was particularly interesting. First I went and got my hair done because it was a fucking disaster and my neck desperately needed shaved. I've been going to the hair salon in the union building, but they fucked up so badly last time that I said hell no and found a new place (though the union salon is closed on Saturdays anyway). I wandered into a nice little place by a couple bars and got a really fucking cute haircut that I love, and also on a whim put some color in it. It's a mixture of blue and violet that came out as this really sexy purple-ish dark blue. It's just a streak on the right side. This caused me to be 5 minutes late for the opera, but it was worth it. I was dressed for a rave while at the opera, also. The show was Xerxes, and it was excellent. Worth skipping yesterday's films at PRIDE for (I already had my Xerxes ticket way in advance). Also, both my night and the other nights' performer for Xerxes were actually women so I really couldn't unsee him as a butch lesbian. Oops. It didn't help that the woman he ends up with has super short hair for most of the opera.

After the opera I went straight back to the Buskirk-Chumley where the festival is for the dance party. It was so fun omfg. For one thing, I got to see Ali again for the first time since her class ended, and I hung out with her and her friends for most of the night. Also I kinda sorta made out with three different women. Oh yes. That was nice.

Oh also a couple things I'm late to mention:

1. This is my class schedule for this semester:
German: G150
Italian: FRIT-M 100
Finite matematics (shoot me in the face oh my god)

Then I have a Lord of the Rings linguistics class that doesn't start until the 2nd 8 weeks.

2. Korey and I found and leased an apartment. It's a 1 bedroom near the stadium and we can have my puppy. <3

Anyway, 30 Days of Me meme!

nachtmusik: (biergarten)
So I'm here at Indiana University and today was my first day of classes. Here's the rundown of my first week (well, 6 days rather) of being in Bloomington:

We left my house around 1 PM last Tuesday. Mom and dad took the Kia, and I rode with Korey. I had enough shit to pack two cars lmao I suck. The ride down was pretty pleasant. Thank god it wasn't too hot out since Korey's car has no AC. When we got there, unloading and setting up my room took for-fucking-ever. Also some tomfoolery occurred. Nothing too serious, but lol Korey locked his keys in his car. Luckily there was an on-campus service that you can use for free 3 times that we utilized to get his damn keys back. I won't need it, at least not this semester, since I don't have my car here so it's no big deal. That was pretty annoying, though, since my dad dropped what he was doing to try to help, and obviously Korey also stopped helping me unload, so it made unloading take ages. Mom and I continued on, though. Once we got enough shit out of the car we went to eat. The place we went was delicious and had blood orange cosmopolitans that were to die for. pretty tipsy on them because I was drinking on an empty stomach, but it was alright. After that, yes while I was tipsy, we all went over to my great aunt's house. She lives in Bloomington and she's really cool. She's in her 90's but it doesn't seem like it at all. She lives with her son Charlie, who works at one of the dining halls on campus that I'll probably eat at. It was a pretty nice visit, and both of them are really impressed with Korey. lmao actually I have a running list on my phone of people who have said we're great together. This list includes Aunt Annabee, my grandma, and a stripper, among other people. Yeah.

Korey stayed overnight for 2 nights to help me get settled in. Official move-in day was Wednesday, which was just the induction ceremony and a picnic afterward. Korey originally planned to leave that night but he wasn't feeling up to the drive, so I was able to convince him to stay until about 3 PM the next day. We got breakfast the day before at a really good local place with delicious pancakes, then on Thursday had lunch together at the IMU. We were kind of embarrassingly PDA-tastic with that since he left me from there. So there was lots of clinging and kissing orz. We also had lots of sex while he was here but that's kind of a given and y'all don't need details.

Over the course of the week I got my room all set up. It wasn't 100% done before Korey left but he was pleasantly surprised at how nice I got it (given how much shit we hauled up here). It's pretty excellent, if I do say so myself.

pictures! )

My parents stayed until Friday. Over the course of the week we made quite a few trips out to surrounding stores to do some last minute shopping for stuff I forgot or didn't know I needed. I left my toothbrush behind lmao, so that was one thing I needed replaced. I also got some food including mochi ice cream for my freezer skjfjw, and a ton of miscellaneous things. I got a tennis racquet for one thing, which will def. come in handy.

Thursday was supposed to be the Culturefest but due to rain and other bs it was kind of a bust. Mom and I ended up going out to eat together instead, which turned out to be a good idea! We went to a place called the Chow Bar, which is a yummy Chinese place with bubble tea. I had mom try it, too, she ordered an iced coffee one and loved it. Both our orders were delicious, too, though mine took some warming up to on my part because it was super spicy. But anyway, the reason why I'm glad I skipped out on Culturefest? I was feeling kind of lonely since that was my first day here without Korey around at all and I couldn't really get a hold of any of the few friends I have down here, and my attempt to go to Culturefest before it got rained out was basically me standing around in a line being bored to tears. But while I was at the restaurant, after a while a group of about 5 people came in and started talking while waiting for their food. The conversation was interesting and they were at the table right next to mine, so I interjected something and the girl sitting closest to me and I ended up talking a lot. This was probably the first solid friend I ended up making here. She's a really nice girl and an opera major. She doesn't have much free time because of how demanding her major is, but we exchanged numbers, have been texting back and forth some, and have loose plans to play tennis sometime.

Later that night was a game night at the library, with games of all sorts. I went to that. They had an emulator with a ton of arcade games set up. I hit that up immediately and wound up playing Soul Calibur against a pretty cool guy named Ben. Also I totally kicked his ass with Sophita, twice in a row. We didn't exchange contact info for some reason, though, oops. I stayed until about 11PM (this lasted until midnight) before having mom walk me back to my dorm (she hung out reading and balancing her checkbook at a chair). On my way out an upperclassman offered to set up help getting me back to my dorm before mom explained that she was my mom and walking me home. Later on I ended up running into her again and it turns out she's really cool and an anime fan and we're getting to be pretty good friends.

Friday was busy. There was a job fair, which I hit up and it looks like I may get hired by one of the places I put in an application with. I'm getting a 2nd interview! There were also open houses for a lot of the various groups the campus has. I spent all of my time at the GLBT Support Services open house. I ran into my friend Dylan that I met at orientation there (unsurprisingly since he's gay). There were tons of cute girls there too omfg. I got one girl's number but sadly she hasn't texted me back, I've sent her a couple messages. I also got info for the callout meeting for Girls Like Us, which is a club/support group for queer girls. That's tomorrow and I'm excited for it. The librarian that runs the (glorious) library at the office is a total sweetheart, too, and I've been talking to her a lot as I keep running into her. After all that was the RecFest, for stuff from the rec centers (we have like 3 of them). It had a weird fair thing with local businesses, free snow cones, signups for intramural sports, and a big exhibition of club sports. I got myself on the contact list for fencing club ASAP, and the callout meeting for that is tomorrow. I also gave my contact info to the tennis club, ballroom dancing club, and tae kwon do club. I may end up doing tae kwon do since I used to and I have a friend in the club, but idk, time constraints and all.

Friday was also when my parents left. We did some stuff together including going out for dinner at HuHot, a really fucking good Mongolian barbecue (well it's not authentic, it's really just a create your own stir fry place, but it's good). omfg you can order s'mores there, and doing so is so cool. They bring out a little pot that they light a fire in so you can roast your marshmallows. * ^ * so fucking cool.

After my parents left, that night was Midnight Madness at Wal Mart. Basically every year Wal Mart has a huge sale that night, they give away a bunch of free things, and they have games and events set up throughout and outside the store. I'll be honest, my main reason for being there was actually the midnight release of The Hunger Games. I had fun in that line chatting with two girls from the Ivy Tech in town, and enjoyed my delicious THG cupcake. After that, I jumped on this bungee trampoline thing from hell that was fun and scary but mostly fun. Lots of people were doing backflips on it, and I considered trying that while still on the ground, but once I was on it I was like nope. I also did some shopping, got a nice carrier for shower supplies, for one thing, since my suitemate has one and they look hella useful. They are. Also got some other things here and there. Carrying it back was a bit hard though. While I was out I ran into Alex, my other gay friend from orientation. Those guys are both so sweet ;3; Also, on the shuttle bus to Wal Mart, I talked to and made friends with an unbelievably cute and nice Chinese girl that sat next to me. We have indefinite plans to hang out sometime next week. Aaah so much fun meeting all these people~

Saturday and Sunday were basically roll around and get shit ready days. I did laundry for the first time and made use of the elliptical we have in the downstairs area. Sunday did a run in the morning, and I got to hang out with Alycia for a little while in the afternoon. I also had my phone interview for the potential job, which I apparently did well in since I'm going on to the next round of interviews. There was also a mandatory floor meeting, which I went to ofc. It was pretty nice since we got to meet each other and get to know each other a bit better. Also this is when I met Giada. She's a really sweet and drop dead gorgeous Italian woman. We plan on going out for drinks possibly this weekend. I also got stopped by a random brony on Sunday after I parted ways with Alycia (I was wearing my Rainbow Dash shirt). He was a really nice guy, we exchanged contact info, etc. No regrets, he seems like the sort of brony that's fun to be around, not the creepy and icky kind. I met another brony on Sunday, too, who is also of the cool variety. My RA introduced us, since I'm getting to be pretty good friends with her, and she's friends with this guy and he's RA of another floor in the building. He told me about the brony club on campus, which I'm totally joining. So far IU bronies seem pretty damn cool. He gave me Wal Mart posters, too. <3 I still need to put them up.

Today was my first day of classes. All I had was German, though. I love it, of course. My prof is awesome. She's super sweet and really fun. She's actually Russian, too. When she speaks English it's really cute imo. She's not hard to understand at all, not to me, but her English is a bit broken in an endearing way. She's also hot. But yeah she seems like a really fun person, and the class has a heavy focus on speaking, which is great for me since my German class I took via the local college a few years ago was the opposite. Through no fault of the professor, mind you, Frau Samuelson was an excellent teacher. Unfortunately, the local college only gives a fuck about engineering and only has foreign languages for the purpose of like. Translating manuals. So languages teachers there are instructed to not put much focus on speaking. But I digress.

Today was also a protest at one of the food courts. The one that has Chick Fil A. It went really well! I handed out flyers and talked to people. Everyone I talked to was friendly and cool. Also, my proudest moment in quite some time came from this; one woman I approached was stone cold to me. She just quietly listened while blankly staring at me. Later on while I was taking a break, though, I saw her sign the petition on her way out. That felt good. My legs were sore from how much exercising I did yesterday so I didn't do much beyond walking to and from classes, the library, and the LGBT support services office to turn in my library usage form. There was a floor dinner with free pizza, which I went to. Spent more time with Giada and Erin, and talked more to some other people too. Alysia is right across the hall from me, is pretty cool, and offered to play tennis with me since I asked for tennis partners at the floor meeting. Corey (who is a girl) is a German major and she and her suitemate Jordyn (also a girl) are super cool and sweet ;3; There's also Betty, the oldest person on the floor (she refuses to disclose her exact age, but she confirmed herself the oldest after Giada said she was 28, so there you go). She's super nice and a voice major. She and I are getting to be good friends. Also Anna, from Australia. She's adorable~ ;3;

So yeah, that's more or less where things are. Also as far as people I already knew, [other] Mary, and old friend from Ft Wayne, is here, as is David, a friend from school (we were never close but I always liked him, he was a nice guy). There's also Kelsey, who was supposed to be my roommate during orientation, but she ended up feeling sick and staying with her parents in their hotel room. We still met each other, though, and wound up becoming pretty good friends. I still haven't seen these 3 yet, but I know they're here.

Tomorrow will be busy. I have 3 classes, 2 callout meetings, and some misc things to take care of. I love it here!

First thing's first; I officially have a new job! It's a pretty sweet deal, too. Basically it's temporary custodial work at the local high school. I got in because my dad's a teacher at the high school and he's done this for a couple years, so I asked him if he could ask his boss for it if he'd take me on, too. I got in. The only drawback is that my work day starts at 6 AM, but it's not really too bad. It's Monday-Friday, 6 AM-3PM. The work is a bit hard physically, but not as bad as McDonald's. The pay rate is $8.98/hour, which beats the hell out of the $7.25/hour at McDonald's, especially since they're automatically giving me more hours per day than McDonald's did. They never gave me 8 hour shifts. My boss is pretty chill, too. He understands that I have back problems and need to sit down sometimes. tl;dr this rocks.

I'm playing Pokemon Conquest now! It's a glorious game. I'm kind of in love with the female main character, Oichi, Ginchiyo, and Motochika so far. This game is just. Awesome. ngl I ship my femc, Lady Ayu, with Oichi really hard. Also Ginchiyo is so gorgeous and ngl I want to cosplay her sometime.

I've also finally been watching Gurren Lagann. It's SO GOOD. I knew I'd love it and that it would be, but yup. It's all true. And Yoko is glorious, fuck the haters.

;3; Korey said he'd cosplay Halloween 2010 Austria and Hungary with me~ (That's devil doctor and devil nurse, not princess and prince, rofl). I got him reading my volumes of Hetalia and he rather likes it. Poor thing, he was expecting BL. I hate how the fandom has made people think that's what it is ='|. Also if we ever get in shape enough for it, we'd like to do Yoko and Kamina too ;3; We're such dorks.

I just got a lovely package in the mail today! And one a couple days ago. Both were figures, albeit in very different senses.

East and West~ )

I've also gotten some actual anime and manga in lately. Specifically Madoka vol. 3 and Asobi ni iku yo! aka Cat Planet Cuties last month, then Hetalia season 4, Hetalia manga vol. 3, and Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt all in one package a week or so ago. I got my Heaven coin with Panty and Stocking, which is a nice touch ♥

In IRL-related news, ;3; Korey and I actually went on a date for the first time in too damn long last week. We went Red Lobster for dinner, then went to see Brave again. After the movie we headed to a nearby park to watch the sunset. Or rather the moon rising. It was a gorgeous full moon that night. My July 4th wasn't bad, but it wasn't spectacular either. Thanks to this fucking drought and heatwave we had no fireworks, even the public ones were canceled. So I just got together with Korey and a handful of guy friends and we watched 1776, bought some fireworks for when we can shoot them off, watched half of Madoka, and went to Amazing Spiderman. Which was pretty good.

Also Betsy is coming to visit! I'm going to go up to her place, stay the night, then bring her back tomorrow.

I am currently in Tampa updating from my hotel's free wifi.

So far the trip's been pretty awesome. We started off on Friday night and stayed over at my sister's house, then left for Georgia Saturday morning. WE stopped in Nashville for the Hard Rock Cafe, that was fun~ From there we stayed in Athens. I have a friend who lives there, so we hung out. ....At midnight. Until like 2 AM. That was cool. We watched drunks and went to a nice little restaurant and talked about porn and hot chicks. Sounds great amirite. Yesterday was pretty much all spent on the road from Athens to Tampa, but it was a good trip. Today there will be seeing my grandma and going to the beach \o/

Not much else to say on it just yet. I've been being a weeaboo during the traveling and playing Fate/Extra and watching He Is My Master on mom's portable DVD player. Wow lame.

Dragon Age Origins is fun~ /playing it forever sob

Also in other Dragon Age-related news, I now play Isabela at [community profile] exitvoid! This cast is lovely~

In other general nerd news, I got my Love is War Miku figure. She's stunning.

I mean really.

I bought a copy of Assassin's Creed today. Let's see how I like it. I also downloaded the Mass Effect 3 demo.

For anime, still slowly going through Pandora Hearts.

Oh! I now have satellite TV and DVR! So I've been recording and watching shows. My DVR is set to record:
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Ninja Warrior
Doctor Who
The Tudors
Battlestar Galactica
Fairly Odd Parents

...I sure am a normal person. Wow. I haven't actually watched any of the BBC shows yet. I figure I'll legit like Dr. Who. I'm curious about Battlestar Galactica. The Tudors...looks like trashy fun and clothesporn yay.

Still into Hetalia ofc. Still RPing Hungary. Still flailing over AusHun at any opportunity. Worried about Himaruya =<.

I put bumper stickers on my car today! ....Including a Kyubey face from cafepress...

I'll do a less nerdy update on things like how my Valentine's Day went later. :3

Finally, after over a year of fighting through insurance policies and the like to make this happen, I'm getting my bariatric surgery tomorrow. [ profile] haro is my surgery buddy; via weird coincidence she's getting a similar surgery tomorrow as well! (we're both doing a bariatric surgery, the difference is in the specific type) ngl I am a bit nervous, but mostly really excited.

So this post is for the following purposes:

1. To let you guys know what's up, since I'll be in the hospital for the next few days.
2. To leave a place for you guys to leave comments, picspams, videos, links, drabbles; whatever you may want to leave me for me to come home to when I'm released from the hospital.
3. To do a small Nekotalia picspam for [ profile] haro since she loves the kitties, and for me to come home to since they're so cute.

Wish me luck, guys!

akdkwdjs apparently Mitarashi Dango is going on hiatus? This is not okay with me. I found an alternative place to ask for that AusHun doujin, but still. =T.

I finally felt good enough to go to the YMCA on Thursday! And I went yesterday too. That felt nice to do.

[ profile] tricolores are dumb and filled out one of those relationship apps on [ profile] hetalia_rate. You guys should go look at it and vote on it for something other than Spamano.

I finally get to see my friends today! Social life, you have returned to me! ;3;

OH. MY. GOD. BERLITZ. IS. SO. CUTE. She does this adorable delayed reaction thing. If you throw a toy for her, she stands there and stares for a couple seconds before running to it. It's just so cute afjksfdwikdkwesj ;3;
nachtmusik: (Deutschland > Alles)

She's a dachshund/chihuahua mix that I'm getting from my darling [ profile] yuffsters next weekend. I'm naming her Berlitz ;3;. She already ended up with the nickname Litzy. I don't have pictures yet because cell phone cameras + rooms that aren't well lit = fail photos, but I promise pictures when she comes home!

We also got a new cat toy when we stopped at Petsmart to look at crates. It's a feather wand and my cats adore it. We've had similar toys, but they didn't have a long enough reach so Mina and Fiyero would often be too scared to play with them, but this has proven to be ideal.

First off, welcome, new friends from the recent Hetalia friending meme! That being [ profile] chairofbusby, [ profile] euploeamulciber, [ profile] sheraccoon, [ profile] miyako_tsuki, and anyone else that may end up adding me after this post goes up.

You'll learn about me that I really have no life. And uh. Yeah. That's about it.

So for today's flailings:

I do not have a problem I swear to God this is not a problem there is nothing wrong with making a doujinshi order with Mitarashi Dango, paying for it and sending her an email to let her know, and immediately, within the same email, opening a new order. This is normal and reasonable.

Okay basically what happened was that I had an order with Mitarashi that had started in July, but communication moved slowly so it was only ready to go a couple weeks ago, and I only paid recently due to credit card tomfoolery. Meanwhile, I'd made an order for Comiket pickup over at [ profile] miseya. My new friends may not know this, but my absolute favorite doujinshi circle is HiKick Bath (note if you poke around on that site; a lot of it is R-18). Everyone here probably knows how much I adore Austria/Hungary. So when your favorite doujinshi circle is releasing a new doujinshi for your favorite pairing, it's natural to want to buy it. They released lostcomplex at Comiket 78, but they were cruel and evil about it and didn't post this info anywhere online until after the event so obviously I didn't have it in my Comiket 78 order at [ profile] miseya. So I did the logical thing; I contacted Mitarashi and asked her if she could direct order it from HiKick Bath. Immediately after finishing the first order with her. Yeah.

Okay fine maybe I have a problem.

Also puppies are adorable. I've been dogless for seven years, and lately I've been missing having a dog like crazy. I'd have to get a small dog because I'm not strong enough to walk a big one and neither is my mom, and because we have cats and a big dog would piss them off badly. So my darling [ profile] yuffsters' dachshund had puppies. Dachshund/chihuahua mix puppies. And they are adorable and I went to see them last night. So so cute~ One little girl still needs a home, and I'm hoping to talk my dad into agreeing to take her ;3;

Oh, oh! And I have a violin teacher again! Esther strongly recommended this guy, I'll be meeting him for my first lesson on Tuesday.

That is all.

So I went to JAFAX on Saturday. this LJ post has been fundamentally altered by this cut )

The end. 

I should post about my birthday eventually.
nachtmusik: (OSCAAAAAAR!!!!!)
Mom's making me stay up 24+ hours to straighten out my sleep. I feel like I could collapse any second. At least my stomach stopped hurting, though.

I watched Amadeus this morning at like 5 AM. Awesome movie. I loved it so much. Though I was fucking confused in the middle of it. We'd rented it, and our video rental place had the first edition of the DVD, which is RETARDED and double-sided, so you have to flip it over midway through the movie. I didn't know that, so I finished the first side and was like "WTF why'd it stop? THAT IS NOT AN ENDING!!!" and I had to get online and look up info about the DVD to figure out what to do.

Now, let's have a meme because I don't have a life. Taken from [ profile] bodyline

1. Pick 7 ships.
2. Choose a song that you associate with each ship.
3. Post some of (or all of) the lyrics/video/whatever.

1. Austria/Hungary (Hetalia) - Candlelight by Csézy
2. Komui/Miranda (D. Gray-man) - Hard to Concentrate by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
3. Tyki/Allen (D. Gray-man) - Heartbreaker by Pat Benatar
4. Kiyora/Mine (Nodame Cantabile) - Bach's Violin Double Concerto (really any piece for two violins works for them; they're both violinists and I like the idea of them performing together)
5. Belarus/Russia (Hetalia) - Every Breath You Take by Juliana Hatfield (forgive the Sora/Kairi AMV; it's the only Youtube video I can find for the Juliana Hatfield version. Much as I love the original by The Police, Belarus is the stalker in this relationship)
6. England/Japan (Hetalia) - Konna ni Chikaku de by Crystal Kay (only because there was a really, really beautiful MAD for that song and this pair, and that MAD is what turned me on to this pairing in the first place. Unfortunately the only version of that MAD that's on Youtube right now is one where someone did a fandub of the song in Spanish =<.)
7. Albert/Peppo (Gankutsuou) - Prisoner of Love by Utada Hikaru (the lyrics fit perfectly. Here is a translation)

I fucking broke a string on my violin today, so I can't practice for a while =/. I miss it ;____;.

But I had mochi ice cream for the first time, so everything is okay! OMFG that stuff is so good.

It's actually not that bad. I just started the new semester and hope to stay on track. I've got Algebra II and French IV. Hopefully I won't start skipping class and fail again.

Meme because I can:

1. Copy and paste your friends list.
2. If you've friended multiple journals by the same person, delete all but the main one.
3. Bold the name of everyone you know or have met in real life.
4. Italicize the name of everyone you've spoken to on the phone. (counting skype & tinychat)
5. Underline the name of everyone you've chatted with online.
6. [Bracket] people you've known, online or off, for five years or more.
7. *star* people who you've gone to school with. (primary/secondary/college)
8. Turn red people who you are related to.

Now let's see if I can get a coherent report out of myself after sleeping and all that good stuff.

Didn't get to leave until around 3:15 PM. The 2 and a half hour drive or so to Betsy's was a bit tiring, but the remaining 3 hours to Detroit was tolerable. Once we picked up Betsy/[ profile] silvernyte the ride was easier since I had someone to talk to and didn't have a headache due to having headphones in too long. We got to the hotel at around 10 PM, put our suitcases and such in the room, and didn't do much else of note.

Awoke relatively early, got dressed, and went down to register. Neither of us preregged since we weren't certain we were going until after prereg closed. So we were in line for about an hour and 20 minutes, which wasn't really too bad. I'm still kicking myself because I saw a really good Ilyasaviel cosplayer in line but didn't get her picture and never saw her again.

Once we had our badges, we wandered the artist alley until the dealers room opened, then went in there. Dealers room was a bit disappointing; there wasn't a single figure I wanted in the whole room. I did find other nice things, though. (All of the goodies are photographed in the images that I'll be linking to at the end of this report).

The first panel we went to was Anime Name That Tune. It was pretty cool but I barely knew any of the songs played. I was pleased when they played Fuwa Fuwa Time, though. Somehow none of the players knew it, and I somehow managed to get called on for it since they'd give it to the audience if the contestants failed. I think the fact that I was bouncing in my seat and singing along (poorly) is what got me called. Betsy was thrilled with the Violinist of Hamelin OP getting played.

That panel let out early so we went to the AA. Betsy ended up in the dealer room, so I went to Anime Balderdash by myself. That? Was fucking hilarious. Basically you'd give the panelists an anime title and they'd give you a synopsis, based solely on the title. There was audience participation, and I ended up going up and getting Initial D. My summary was something about a guy whose initials were D.D.D. and he kept getting confused as to which name was his first, middle, and last, so he had to go on an epic quest to find his birth certificate. idek.

From there we met back up at the room and ordered pizza, which we ended up sharing with Matt, a friend of mine from IPFW's anime club, who had randomly knocked on the door before mom brought the food up. We also spent a little time with Erin, Cassie, Elise, and some other random people. There was supposed to be a dirty fanfiction panel that Betsy and I got in line for, but the panelists never showed up so it got canceled. We raged at that for a bit, then went to bed.

Got up and went to the Hetalia panel. Found [ profile] pocketmolecule, who was behind us. Panel was pretty cool. Had some lulzy moments with a Sealand cosplayer being ICly annoying and one of the panelists that was cosplaying Austria being ICly a jerk to them. Also one of the panelists was cosplaying Germany and Austria had to keep him from seig heiling every so often (I know the panelists somewhat. They are amusing, nice people). After that was the photoshoot, then some time hanging out with [ profile] pocketmolecule and the people she was with. That was fun. We split when they went to an autograph session, then I went upstairs and crashed for a while. Woke up around 8:00 or so and spent [ profile] pocketmolecule's last 20 minutes of the con with her. You're a sweetie, Jordan, and ilu and I wish I hadn't fallen asleep for so long! We'll have to meet up again next year at least, if not find some random weekend and a halfway point to meet up before then~

After she left, we were going to meet with mom at the hotel restaurant for food, but [ profile] zrana responded to a text saying she had downtime from staffing and we could meet her at her room. [ profile] zrana and Betsy are old online friends, so I wanted them to see each other at least once, thus we met up with her instead. [ profile] zrana had a dork moment and they didn't realize who each other was until it clicked with Betsy, then they got all giddy giddy yay and hugged and I died laughing at their fail, since I'd told them previously about it. We followed her to her staffing karaoke and spent quite a while at that. I ended up singing Konna ni Chikaku de... which was really fun. Then we hit a couple 18+ panels and went to bed.

Not a lot. Woke up, packed, dealers room and artist alley for a while, then took Betsy home and came back ourselves. Betsy found a Train Heartnet cosplayer and thus was very happy. We'd seen a Rinslet on Friday that told us that Train and Eve had left, and Betsy flipped out at missing a Train cosplayer, so finding her on Sunday was nice. The Train cosplayer was really good, too. She made a cute Train~

-spending so much time with Betsy. She's a sweetheart, but I've never gotten to hang out with her all that much face to face.
-the panels we attended were all quite fuckwin
-my other friends~
-having a squeaky conversation with the person that bought the other fox hat with squeaker puffets from Pawstar while waiting for an elevator (they only had 2 of them)
-some of the dirty jokes from Saturday night (Betsy: "I squeaked your thing!")
-Karaoke and the fucking awesome Team Rocket cosplayers' duet of the Japanese Team Rocket song
-[ profile] pocketmolecule's Austria cosplay and getting pictures of her on the piano in the lobby
-Finding vol. 2 of Swan in the dealers room
-Hentai panel's lulzy dub clips
-meeting Ash (Betsy's dog) when we took Betsy home

-people being jerks to Betsy and pushing her out of the way at the elevator when I wasn't around to help her (she used a wheelchair most of the con due to her fibromyalgia)
-dirty fanfic panel being canceled
-my fail and sleeping through most of Saturday afternoon and thus not seeing [ profile] pocketmolecule as much
-some of the disturbing clips from the hentai panel
-not getting a pic of that Ilyasaviel cosplayer
-Alycia not getting to go due to school stuff (;__; ilu bby *hug* hope you're reading this)

So overall the con was an A+. Pictures are here, as promised:
