Today was a much better day than yesterday. I got some good stuff in the dealers' room, which I had a bag to hold already prepared, and the T-shirt trade went off so smoothly that I bought Mom's birthday present from the same booth. I also picked up a few new manga volumes that I haven't found in stores: Hayate the Combat Butler 19, Hero Tales 5, Kobato 5, We Were There 13, and Natsume's Book of Friends 10 and 11. I also made it to two panels - one where everyone got to talk a bit about obscure series that they love and no one else seems to know about (I mentioned Brigadoon to a full house and Et Cetera to some stragglers at the end - other notable titles that came up included The Irresponsible Captain Tylor and some very strange ones that I need to look up), and one where the participants split into groups to work on Professor Layton-style puzzles. My group was in a three-way tie for third place, which wasn't enough for prizes, but it was a lot of fun anyway. I stayed later than I did yesterday and never needed the pain pills, but I'm still bringing them tomorrow just in case. I hit Panda Express for dinner, since that Shish Kebab place appeared to be dine-in only (might not have been the case, but I didn't want to check), and the dinner wasn't great. The container was sideways in the bag, so the sauce leaked out, and the fried rice was terrible. I also decided to get some sort of cranberry-grapefruit drink instead of my usual raspberry iced tea, and that wasn't very good, but that was my own fault.

At the end of the day, though, I have a handmade plush Fluttershy, and that's what really matters. Even if I remember to show up for the raffle at the end of the day tomorrow and manage to win the giant Rainbow Dash, I think it's still Fluttershy that matters. I have Fluttershy in a bag - anything you have to say is irrelevant.

Also, I guess I should list the anime I bought yesterday just for reference in a single post, since I doubt I'll buy any tomorrow - season three of Sgt. Frog (my list says I have the first two, and I'm pretty sure I skipped on the third because that's a lot to watch, but the 20% off price was appealing), the first two DVDs of Puella Magi Madoka Magica (the collectors' editions are WAY too expensive for a series I don't know whether I'm interested in, for lots of crap I don't care about), and the complete series of Heaven's Lost Property and Princess Jellyfish. The latter, at least, was highly recommended. The former just sounds interesting enough for one of those shows where the whole point is girls getting naked or not doing so and thus causing the main conflict. I also heard good things about Katanagatari at the panel, and they had that at the Anime Pavilion booth, but I don't think there's any rush.

The Bag of Holding, by the way, was awesome and fulfilled its purpose excellently today. I believe it's available through Thinkgeek, if anybody ever needs to put things into other things.

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
