And one more photo post, while I'm at it...
Some of you know that roho, enveri and I decided to make last weekend a vacation by travelling to Madison and crashing out with eisenkreis and arphalia. While a visit to the two lovely ladies is always reason enough to make the trip out of Illinois to the wilds of Wisconsin,we also had other motives! Namely, chebutykin and cajones were in town for OdysseyCon. How could we pass up a chance to visit with our favorite comic-coloring web zombie and her significant other (and in so doing also pass up the chance to visit with other good friends such as onceagainplease, sleepingzebras, et al)? We'd have to be mad!

Well, we all had a good time. Cheb summarizes well with her series of entries, and Roho gives an amusing abstraction in his journal.

Most surprising to me, though, was meeting muskrat_john and getting the entire crew of Dr. Blink to autograph copies of issues #0 and #1 for all of us. I had to capture the moment, so here it is below....





I admit it, this made me positively giddy. Or perhaps it was a combination of sleep deprivation, sushi, caffeine, late hours and too much nicotine. I'm planning to do this again next year in a much more formal fashion (read: registered attendee). I need more relaxing conventions in my life.

Every time you masturbate, God kills a Cheb. Please, won't somebody think of the Chebs.

I could see Cheb in some twisted little Japanese kid's show.

Running around, shoving her face full of sushi, marshalling a zombie army...

She already likes Guitar Wolf.

If I ever get my hands on that special Guitar Wolf/Puffy AmiYumi video I saw at San Diego last year... I'm fucking flying to the east to force you to watch it RIGHT NOW.

Yes.

Dude, you don't know the half of it. That shirt just draws the eyes to the Domo-kun...And your average Cheb at a sci-fi con probably already has quite enough creepy guys staring at her chest! It took massive effort of will to try and keep from getting into a staring contest with Domo, and I'm sure I was only partially successful ;)

Domo will always win the staring contest.

Indeed, I have noticed this phenomenon.

I think I may have to get the parnter shirt to this one, and see how reactions differ. The other shirt bears the face of Totoro.

Hey, you coming to the tech swap this weekend?
feren From: feren Date: April 15th, 2005 01:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Afraid not! I have an obligation to run conduit and drill through masonry...
posicat From: posicat Date: April 15th, 2005 02:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
For me that would be fun! :)

I hope you enjoy running wires and such as much as I do.

It was wonderful to see you again!

it's always awesome to catch up with you. We need sushi GTs more often.

Just an offhand comment, and I know I don't generally reply to your LJ posts, but I just have to say, you look exceedingly handsome in this particular LJ Icon. Kudos!
feren From: feren Date: April 15th, 2005 01:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, thank you. That's probably the most unexpected comment I've received in a long time! The picture's about two years old at this point, taken back at the wedding of captain18 and spoothbrush. (Un?)Fortunately I don't wear a tux all the time.
catdragon From: catdragon Date: April 15th, 2005 05:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, you definitely look good in one! :)

I just had to comment on your comment of Feren's icon.. I agree with you that he is a very handsome gentlemen. :)

:) *hugs* I'm glad you had a good time. It's always good to hear about you being happy even though I can't see you smile, I know it's there. :) Hope to be able to see you soon on the muck. Miss you, take care of you. *hugs*
