 Man, Katsucon was fun! The hotel was fantastic--I cannot believe they got the Gaylord omg. But I am so exhausted, let me tell you.

I took a lot of pictures but they were all on my friend's camera so I'll probably post them later. I dressed up as the Painted Lady--a lot of people recognized me! I was really surprised, because I thought my cosplay was crap. I literally used dollar store makeup and a camping tarp I found at the last minute. But a lot of people really liked my costume and took pictures of me, which was flattering but a little creepy. Well, I took a lot of pictures of cosplayers too, so whatev.

I got:

A Bleach poster (of Ichigo and Rukia in street clothes! :D)
The coolest FLCL poster ever
A Code Geass and a Death Note poster for my cousin
FLCL fanart print
a pin of Hitsugaya
A sticker of chibi!Zuko

Zuko's sticker is the swag that I am proudest of getting, btw. I got it when I talked a friend of mine into getting some really fanservicey prints despite a promise to herself not to, and the fanartist was offering a free chibi sticker for every two prints bought. She wasn't interested in any of the characters, so she came away with Zero Suit Samus, Ceci from Code Geass eating pizza (suggestively, lol), and the mark of shame burning on her forehead, and I came away with chibi!Zuko and a good lesson: be a terrible person and the universe will reward you with fanart.

 It's snowing again. How fun.

Out my window not a soul is in sight, and the snow is swiftly blanking out all vestiges of civilization. Already our little suburb resembles a post-apocalyptic tableau. It's sort of fun: I feel like an action heroine, writing livejournal entries in the desperate, vain hope that someone on the eastern seaboard is still alive...

It's probably bad of me to hold a tiny little hope that the power will go out, but I always associate blackouts with warmth and family. We'll light the fireplace, and Mom will make sure everyone has way too many blankets. Dad will roast potatoes and I will read books by the light of the fire. Except, unlike every other time we've had a blackout, my brother won't be there, so I guess it wouldn't really be the same. (He's currently in Minneapolis, laughing at us poor Virginians who have already exceeded our yearly budget for weather clearance.)

Hey, does anyone understand what Google Buzz is? Anyone at all? Because I like Google and all, but they keep coming up with weird stuff. I think they're trying to be the little black dress of the internet. 

*glances outside* Holy crap, there's a lot of snow out there! It's on the trees, creating the strangest illusion of flowers. It's also on the roads, less pretty and more obstructive. There go my hopes of human contact this week.

Oh and if anyone is in the area--I will hopefully be at Katsucon this weekend! My first con :D
