Alright bumbos, as those of you following me on the Twatters know, I’ll be attending Otakon in Baltimore from July 26-29, which is a week from now! I know there’s around 70-80 unfortunate souls subscribed to Hobby Hovel’s RSS feed, and I’m betting at least a few of you are also attending the second largest anime convention in North America. Since conventions are all about diving head-first into a sea of like-minded freaks and weirdos, I propose this question: does anyone want to meet up sometime over the weekend, possibly over lunch/dinner/anything?

Remember Otakon-goers: only you can prevent me from looking like a total loser on my own blog with whom nobody wants to hang out with. My very self-esteem hangs in the balance! Order Reply today!

One of these days I’ll realize that posting my own mug all over my creepy toy website is a bad idea. Then I’d wish I were sensible like Hamstercorp here.

Now, I know your common sense is warning you about meeting strangers from the internet, but as Hamstercorp (who will be my guide in this weekend of swirling madness) would attest, I am not a bear or a shark dressed up in a human suit, so you are relatively safe from the possibility of being mauled and/or cannibalized. So asides from emotional trauma that time cannot erase, what do you have you to lose?

Anyway, the business of meeting up aside, I’m pretty pumped about Otakon. Not only is this my first major anime convention aside from Anime North, it’s also my first time traveling solo! In any case, I’m sure this trip will yield some fun stories one way or the other. Either I’ll have a fun time, or you’ll have a fun time reading about some form of psychological scarring that I’ll detail in the inevitable blog post. Yep, even if you can’t make it COUGHAshlotteMietteExileheroCOUGH, you’ll hear all about it! Unless you don’t hear from me ever again, in which case Hamstercorp has probably sold my vital organs on the black market, and you’ll have learned to know better than to meet up with strangers on the internet…erm, I mean, hope to see you there! ;D
