"How delightful!" I thought. "Perhaps I'll buy tickets now to avoid what's surely going to be a crush!"
It wasn't long before I was told that there would be no crush because the show was already sold out. I made a hasty call to V to let her know that the evening would look curiously different that we had planned. Then, I went to New England Comics where I made even more fantastic discoveries!
First, I learned that New England Comics was in the midst of a huge sale. Everything in the store was 20-50% off!
Then, I learned that I am not sufficiently geek enough to shop at New England Comics because they insist on sorting by publisher (I think?) as opposed to something sane like author or title. I did stumble across a Courtney Crumrin one-shot, but I was at a complete loss to find anything else.
Now, at this point, you're probably thinking, "But Peter, all you needed to do was ask and the friendly sales gnome would have assisted you." While it's true that the friendly sales gnome undoubtedly has an encyclopedic knowledge of every item in the store, it is because of circumstances that led to my most amazing discovery yet that I did not approach him. I Discovered that I very much wanted to do a voice post. In that fine establishment, purveyor of all manner of geekery, I had a moment that inspired the perfect words to gift to you good people. Those words were:
Nothing says you care like cosplay bowling for charity.
I would share with you exactly what transpired to make these words form in my fevered brain, but I fear it would be too far horrible for you to contemplate. Suffice to say that under no circumstances should any of the people who spoke of this cosplay be dressed as the anime characters they were discussing. While bowling. For charity. (At least once a month)
Once I escaped, I did meet up with V for a perfectly lovely dinner where I likely spoke too much. I've no idea why I'm quite so chatty as I am tonight, but there's no sense fighting it.
With that, however, I bid you good night. Ta.
