WELCOME TO MgRONALD's. Would you like fries with that?
It was a good convention. I got to see almost everyone and had lots of fun. I'm hoping to work less next year, but we'll see.
Uh… probably more cosplay photo junk later? I might just throw it on Cosplay.com or Cure instead. I have a big awesome Tsuritama photoshoot from last weekend I want to put up at some point, and that might take priority. (Oh gosh, we were in San Francisco and we played in the waves and practiced our casting and ate cookies and Eeeee! It was so great!)
