  • Remind me not to suffer fools next year at #AnimeExpo2012 especially ones I know who should know better. Uuuugh. #
  • Waiting in line for AMV Contest for a ticket for my sister. Would rather be in Manga Lounge. She's selling in Artist Alley. #AnimeExpo2012 #
  • Not happy with #AnimeExpo2012 right now. The shuttle driver skipped my hotel and then told us to walk from the Hilton!! I'm staying at Kyoto #
  • What the hell is the point of the shuttle if I have to walk anyway?? Not impressed. #AnimeExpo2012 #
  • @Zekor yeah, I know. >_> in reply to Zekor #
  • Note to self: do not go in w/ other people for a hotel room next year. This hotel stuff is a disaster w/ my roommates at #AnimeExpo2012 Ugh #
  • @Zekor Oh, don't worry. I will tell you all about it. in reply to Zekor #
  • @Dredgly it's not the hotel itself that's been a problem. roommates are making life difficult. it is cut & dry, but that's not stopping them in reply to Dredgly #
  • @ThePhoenixJones you rock, Phoenix!! in reply to ThePhoenixJones #
  • Up and at 'em. Ready for day 2 of #AnimeExpo2012 Hopefully it's better than yesterday haha. No, I really hope that. -_- #
  • Must remember this today. RT @TWLOHA: "The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any." — Alice Walker #
  • Just got on the shuttle. Waited about half an hour, which is mostly what I expected. No line. Only 2 others on bus. #AnimeExpo2012 #
  • #AnimeExpo2012 they won't let us into the convention hall until 8. So, I caught the shuttle early b/c…? Was it like this last year? #AX #
  • After all this unintentional sun, I'll be happy to sit in a video room for a good while. #AnimeExpo2012 #
  • So, is Kiki's Delivery Service having a resurgence or something?? I've seen like 5 Kikis so far. #AnimeExpo2012 Someone want to fill me in? #
  • @ra1nf No, it was definitely entire convention hall, not just the exhibits. Had to sit outside in the sun for a half hour 🙁 #AnimeExpo2012 in reply to ra1nf #
  • I always think it's such a trip to watch something like: Kotetsu & Blue Rose helping Saber put on her armor while Sebastian & Ciel look on. #
  • Only at #AnimeExpo could I get completely different characters from 3 different series in same picture w/ each other, much less be friendly #
  • Kind of blows my mind. Like the ultimate crossover fic, you think? ^_^ #AnimeExpo2012 #
  • @sammiguidera I checked for you at Artist Alley this morning but I couldn't find you. You'll be there tomorrow too?? #AnimeExpo2012 #
  • @Zekor wow. >_> did they trample everything? in reply to Zekor #
  • @Zekor people. :/ I don't like people much, it turns out. something like that would just be the Nth reason why. in reply to Zekor #
  • @Zekor No, B. Be patient with them. I'm sure planets of them are rich people who want to give you/the museum their money. in reply to Zekor #
  • @zekor Hahaha plenty of them, I meant, not "planets" haha #
