So I haven't been posting a lot of the good things that have been happening which is ashamed because I have been having a lot of fun and been meeting great new people.
This weekend was the very first time I went to an anime con and as funny as it sounds it made furry feel normal. There were some awesome costumes but there were also a lot of bad ones too and it seemed like the vast majority of them were in costumes. I can't say too much because they were just kids after all but yeah there are a lot of kids at furcons too. Another thing, ACEN made MFF look like a picnic. I mean there were, according to one of the staff, over 23,000 people there. I mean that seriously blows my mind as even AC's attendance is probably going to be over 6,000 this year and they are one of the largest furry cons. I originally was going to stay at the hotel over night but decided at the last minute not to. I knew there were supposed to be five people in the room but figured more might end up crashing there. But I still paid for my portion of the room and headed out with other friends.
Our original plan was to go to TMLMTBGB but we ended up spending a relaxing evening watching Dr. Who instead. I ended up crashing with them since I had stuff to sleep with anyway.
Sunday morning woke up and went to breakfast with Toz and Reddy and their friends. Had an amazing breakfast at Nookies... one that if I repeat could possibly kill me, but soooooo good. Then Reddy and I walked around Boystown and shopped for a bit. Our friend Metro was having his birthday dinner at 7 so we went over to gaymart to find something he'd like (since Gaymart has a huge collection of things we'd know Metro would like). We ended up both getting him a sonic screwdriver from Dr. Who (Tenth and Eleventh Doctor's). We ended up figureing if we just stayed in Boystown area we could wait for Toz and then go back to Reddy's together so we went to a few other places, I ended up buying some really cheap football pants <3 and found that Belmont Army has footed pjs which seemed odd, but cool of course.
Met up with Toz at the Belmont stop and headed back to Reddy's place where we ended up grabbing lunch and taking it back to his place and watching more Dr. Who. Toz had to go pick up his keys that he had left at a friends house and Reddy and I got ready for dinner with Metro. It was a good crowd, about ten or so people and Metro loved the sonic screwdrivers :3 and at the end of the night Reddy was kind enough to drive me home.
I do have to say I am enjoying hanging out a lot with these guys. I know sometimes I feel really awkward and don't really feel like I fit in but the truth is it takes time to really become a part of the group. And really when you have people inviting you out to do things you know you are liked well enough to be included.
