My daughter and I are attending an anime convention over the next three days in Mesa. We have been planning this for quite some time, and we are going to stay at the hotel even though it is probably only 35 or 40 miles from where we live. It will just be easier if we are able to go to the events when we want to and also have a place to rest when we get tired. We are really looking forward to it.
My daughter is busy tweaking her costume and wig and is toying with the idea of dressing up as three different characters over the three day period. I enjoy some of the events, but I mostly like the people watching. The attendees are usually a very good group and I have not seen any problems at the conventions I have attended. In the past, I've only gone for the all day Saturday events so this will be new to me.
On another subject, I just discovered that two of the blogs I've read for quite some time now say that I do not have permission to read them and that I have to be invited. Well, that is fine, but I see no way to get invited. There's probably something I am missing in all this.
We washed our car this afternoon. It was around 70 degrees, and although the water was pretty cold, it was not unpleasant. I see that really bad weather is headed to the northeast. It makes me happy that we have weather that is nice enough that we can go out and wash our car.
When we get back from our convention, I'm going to do my weigh in and picture for the January Jeans Club. I'll be wearing those jeans on one of the three days we are out of town. :)
