 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.

To all my weird little friends that I usually adore:

I don't like Twilight.

I hate Bella, I don't think Edward is at all remotely attractive, and I don't think Stephanie Meyer is a goddess. You may think that the writing is perfect, the plot heart-breaking, the dialogue witty, the characters believable. I don't. Nothing against it, it just doesn't do it for me.

I have read it. I have enjoyed parts of it. But I have never been moved to tears by the ill-fated, misadventured exploits of Romeo and Juliet Bella and Edward. (I also don't enjoy the blatant R & J references. But that's just me. Like the rest of this journal.)

The funny thing is, I wouldn't mind it so much if you would stop talking about it. If I'm honest with myself, I think that, in spite of besides everything else, the writing is very good. I would have read it, enjoyed it, and forgotten about it. But because of everything you had put me through for the sake of that @&*% overrated, blatantly teenage-girl-button-pushing scrap of an excuse for literature, I hate it. Overly so.

So please. Stop talking about it so much. That is all I ask. ALL I ASK. Or at least curb your enthusiasm to a point where I don't want to stake Edward through the heart with Bella's splintered femur.


P.S. I would also really appreciate it if you would stop talking about my literary bloodsucking namesake and confusing her with me. Thank you.
