I stole a test from Dandan:

Take the Which Utada Hikaru Song Are you? Quiz!

And a test from Than:

The latter test makes me think. I know last year I was definately "having fun, and always smiling," but I'm not quite so sure this year. I'm quite a bit more somber this year. Last year I was more energetic and fun-loving, but this year I know I've simmered down quite a bit. I don't know why. Although I believe I'm much more "me" when I'm somber like this. I'm much too shy and reserved to be too energetic.

Anyway, about my day... bah... first day back to school after Fanime. I had to trudge through my classes. It was horrible. The weekend was so great, so going back to school was horrible. Well... maybe it wasn't that bad, but I miss Fanime. I'm already looking forward to next year.

Hm... I've been meaning to go over just what I thought about Fanime as a whole...

This year I was a lot busier than usual, that's for sure. There were so many panels and events to go to, I had to find time to spend money in the dealers room. That's so unusual to me because every other year I went I spent hours in the dealers room, gawking at all the spiffy merchandise. Which brings me to another thought: this year's dealers room was a lot less... how should I say... "magical" than other years. I don't know why, but this year every other piece of merchandise yell out to me "buy me!" That was a surprise. There were plenty of good things, but I wanted a great deal less than I usually do.

I got to see a lot of people at this year's con. People I know already, but not very well. People like Dandan, Tina, June, and Steph. It was nice seeing all of you. I'm sorry if I didn't talk much, but as I've said before, I'm a quiet person. I hope you had some kind of fun hanging out with me.

As I thought, the screening rooms showed nothing that I really, really had to catch. Well... except for Re:Death and Fanboy Bebop. All the normal anime they showed were all things that I have seen or could easily download. Each year there is less and less incentive for me to watch the showings. This year I didn't watch any. I'm sure next year will be the same thing.

This year I actually attended panels. Usually I'm too caught up in the dealers room to do much else, but this year I made it to several panels. I'm happy about that. I learned so many things at the garage kit panel. Those things were so worth my time.

This was the first time in two years I didn't catch Mari's concert. Gwar! I attended her concert in '00 and '01, but she had it on Friday this year and when I heard of it, it was already over. *grumble grumble*

There were tons of cosplayers this year! More so than any other year I believe. A lot of them costumes were pretty good too. I got a lot of them on film, but I know I missed so many good ones. I didn't get a picture of them Jin-Roh guys! Gwar!

Overall, it was a great con. I throughly enjoyed it.

Hey man, thanks for linking me. Wow... I'm now promoted to "daily read" status? I should feel honored. ^_^ Heh heh... anyway, about the CD, you're quite welcome. I'll convert you to a Photoshop junky yet! ^_^ Haha!

You're going to AX? Wow... I want to go someday.... I won't be able to anytime soon, but some day.... Take pictures! ^_^ I took pictures at Fanime, so you gotta take pictures at AX! ^_^

Yes, I'm alive, so rest assured. ^_^

Yup, I'm going to AX! And pictures I will take! Mostly pictures of other cosplayers... ^^; And anything I buy. Kinda like you. I can't wait to go... a little over 2 months away! ^_^

Most likely I'll be in So. Cali all my life (well.. most) and that some day you come it'd be quite a sight if I happened to bump into you and go, "...Tsu-kun?!" XD 'Course that wouldn't be that likely to happen... but just a thought.

And school ALWAYS -- 99% of the time -- ruins everything. *sigh*
