Anime Central was.. wow! To say it in the most short, consice manner possible, I had a BLAST! I had a ton of fun! I'm still dead tired and hurting all over from working, but I wouldn't take it back for anything!!! ^^ I <3 the reg crew like nobody's business, and I <3 all of my friends that I saw here! I spent quality time (and not so quality time XD.. meaning goofy time XDXD) with so many people that I've been dying to see for a while now! Also, some of the online people I know and hadn't met yet turned out to be amazing!!!!! ^^ <3<3 I, like a lot of people, was afraid of the possible drama, but it turned out all right and I was drama free up until this afternoon. That, I don't really want to go into detail about at the moment, but I surely will tell the interested parties later on, probably in person/over the phone. Offensive people have been removed from my friends list and from the RP. Something that I've been meaning to do for a while.

Wow, it sounds like there was a fight or something... XD There wasn't. There was no scuffle, no nothing. The worse was a talk that I had with someone VERY important to me. I only answered the questions that she asked. If I've chosen wrong in friends, so be it, but I still don't believe it. If you're my friend, then you are my friend for a reason, and trust me, the only reason that I wanted to spend time with you was because I adore you. I thought we could have a ton of fun free from any drama.. in fact, there was a TON of things that I wanted to chat happily about, and I seriously wanted to get some girl-time in in this case... after all, you are my onee-chan, and the only one that I've ever had, since I am the oldest in my family. I tried.. and tried, and tried and tried to get some time with you. I was willing to beg off of work for it if I could, but it came down to the last day and even that little time was hard-won... it wasn't what I wanted, so honestly I feel like I'm not so important, because I don't like who you're dating or the immature child of a roommate that you have. I was hoping to just put that aside and have fun and hang out for a while with you. Maybe next time.... if there is a next time. If you want to, and can make your own decision that it's important enough. After all..... you mentioned needing to spend time with some friends who had flown over for the con.... what did I do, walk? If you're a free person, can't you just be YOU with ME for a few hours? That was really all that I wanted, just to have fun and hang out. Like I said... maybe next time, if there is a next time. Sure, I may be at Acen next year (or I may not), but it is a year from now. Look at how much has changed in the meantime.. But I have to say it again... you're important. To me. For a long time you have been.. and I wouldn't have cried if it wasn't so. I wouldn't have cared at all if it wasn't true.

Ack... I didn't want to turn this into a dissertation of the one rainy spot of Acen.... ^_^;; I suppose it's because the bad things just sometimes need to be said, maybe as a cleansing.. or maybe just because it's nice to have an ear, even if the ear is a friend's macintosh computer.

Speaking of which... I'm at indirect's house right now, where I will stay tonight and tomorrow night before we head off to spend almost the entire Tuesday in Chicago. I fly out late late Tuesday night, and get home a little before 1 am my time.. (3 am for you Chicagoean peoples) I wanted to chat with Sai and her luv while we made the long drive up, but we chatted a little about everything (XD especially food,. yum!!!), and then a mentally and physically exhausted Hi-chan fell asleep in the car. I slipped in and out of dozi-ness on the way, which is probably why I'm sitting here at almost 3 AM after everyone else went to sleep, completely wide awake. Ami-chan and Fruey fly out from Chicago soon, bound for Canada... have a safe flight!!!!!!! Fruey is going to have a blast in Canada, I just know it! ^^

I'm going to just run with this in a random stream of thought.... so bear with me if you read it. ^.~ First off, I finally met Saeri. I have to admit to a bit of trepidation because of some personal relations between her and the only two people at the con that I didn't like, amd we were sharing a room. But... well, sure we touched on the subject, but it was pretty much out the window. Saeri was one of the coolest people that I've met in a LONG time! I love her, I love her hair! I know that she'll have a TON of fun in Germany! I soooooo want to come and visit!! ^^ Saeri was completely awesome, and I adored hanging out with her! I only wish that I'd been able to hang out more. ^^ She's definitely a friend I will make an effort to come and visit sometime if the chance ever arises. XD I regret that I had to run out the door of the room suddenly without saying proper goodbyes and huggles, but it totally slipped my mind that she would be leaving leaving right after that... I thought that she would be around later and so that I would get to say a proper goodbye..... ^^;; Wah! Yes, baka me! I should have remembered! Sorry sorry Saeri-chan! *bows* I would have huggled you like everyone else if I hadn't been so retarded and forgot! ^^;;;

Shumea... God, I missed her. I was apprehensive about seeing her again, but after a chat where, really, we just talked about anything but what we needed too (oops ^^;) things just started settling back into where they should be. They aren't quite there yet, but it was a good start. It IS a good start., I guess I should say. *huggles* I wish that I had never stopped things way back when, but I can't change the past, and we'll have to work through it. I suppose I can admit to a tiny bit of a crush, but it is what it is and such.. not anything that I can do anything about. But we will be friends for a long time.. I would hope forever.....

Fruey... OMG Fruey, I'd nearly forgotten how much fun you were! I'm going to name you my candy girl, for we share the same love for the sweet stuff! Fruey, you're my bouncing and hyper partner, and I totally hope that you can come to Expo and hang out with us! Why is it I think that you and me and Kako would make the strangest team? I don't know, it just keeps coming to mind randomly. XDD Fruey, I want your gorgeously beautiful hair and personality!!! *bounce* Just thinking of you makes me want to bounce in front of the elevators again!! (there is a video of this........... no, you don't want to see, it's scary) I hope you have a blast in Canada!!!! Remember, chocolate!!!!!!!!!! <3<3 to you Fruey-chan!! We should double-team LA sometime.. it's about halfway between us, after all, and you know that LA cannot take the two of us together! Or maybe Vegas instead!! Oh man, think about the havoc and F-U-N!!!!

Yohji-kun... I can't... I just can't express what it meant to me to have you there for me this afternoon when I was down for a while. I will say the same for Aya but in the next paragraph. It had been so long since we'd chatted, but I was sooooo looking forward to sharing a room with you!!! You're like, a bright ray of sunshine for me! (I mean that in the best possible way, and if you want to be darkness, that's cool too XD) You're amazing, and really made all the difference in the con for me! You made it SO much fun!!! You were awesome, and so you and just... *squee* So so awesome! I don't know how to express it, really! *loves forever* We will have to talk more on AIM, for sure!!!!!!!!!!

Aya-kun... The same thing that I said for Yohji-kun about being there, applies to you too. *huggles* I'm so happy to have friends like you too! Honestly, I didn't know you all that well before the convention, and we'd barely spent any time together the year before. It was like getting to know you almost from the beginning... and I loved it! You're one of the few guys that I would let get close to me, . I'm just not a guy person. ^.~ But you, you are the best!! By the way, you made the HOTTEST catboi! ^.~ I suck about expressing those kinds of things in real life. ^.^; We also need to talk more on aim!!

Patrick... we spent a lot more time together this time around. It's amazing how much I missed you! I didn't even realize until this visit that I was so comfortable talking with you. You're the main reason that I want to come back to Acen next year. (though all the con was fun! But the main reason that brought me last year was you, too) I actually thought a lot about high school and how much both of us have changed since then, and it made me happily nostalgic, even though neither of us has the desire to ever end up back in the Tri-Cities. Pat, I wish dearly that we lived closer together so that we could hang out, because I really want to. Just hang out, go do things together, you know, the normal.. would you ever be up for a visit if I can afford it? Where you live (I already forgot) may not be the most exciting place ever, but maybe we can vacation together or something! While not always on the same wavelength, I think you're one of that small group of guys that I let close to me too.

Dusty... I know, we met last year. At least, I was told so, but it was really quick and I have a terrible memory. This will always stand out as the time when we actually met, for me. ^^ *loves* I think that we really just... clicked, so to say. Not on a romantic level, though I could see it. I'm just not interested in guys anymore. But we clicked on the more important level, where we could just hang out and be comfy with each other.. You're so quiet! hehe! Hehee, you're my Nagi!! <3 I had a total blast talking to you, and it was such a change from how I was with Fruey. XD Fruey winds me up, and you wind me back down to a bit of normalcy. Sort of.. XD As normal as we can get. I want to hang out with you a LOT more! Do I have your AIM name? If I don't, then I want it!!!! Actually, I'll see you tomorrow (or rather, later today) anyway, and so I'll get it then probably!!

Saiai... OMG, I was thrilled to see you again! I am still thrilled! Actually, I'm going to hang off on talking about you on here until I get back from the trip, because our time together at the con was almost nonexistant, and our real time together is just getting started!!!! I have no way to say how much I've been looking forward to this part of the trip!! I can't wait to hang out more!!!! *bounce* Just thinking about it makes me all giddy!!! <3<3<3 We're going to have a BLAST!!!!!!!!

Heather... We spent a lot of time talking the other night. A little about this, a little about that. I have to say that I didn't know you too well either, before that. But I'm glad that we started talking there, because I feel a lot closer to you than I did. I want to extend that, and talk much, MUCH more often! You're happy and fun, and getting along for us is almost a natural thing. <3 to you too and we have to talk on AIM more!

Wow, now I'm getting tired.. it's nearly 3:30 in the morning, so no wonder. I've just been sitting here in silence for a while, typing and thinking. Acen was a memorable experience for me, really. I want to say so much more, about how wonderful Cat and Matt and the tons of other staffers (especially Reg but nowhere near limited to it... I wish that I had emails of them all.. I'll have to get them) that I worked with and hung out with. I found myself part of several lengthy discussions in the staff suite about various things.. and omg the chocolate.... chocolate and strawberries. I almost can't remember the discussion that night because I was so involved with eating them! Wai! Okay, I'm going to have to sign off for the night and call it an evening. I will write more about everyone else later, and you'd better believe that I have pictures!!!! Not just me, but the others have pictures (and video in some cases) and I will definitely show them all off!! <3 I wish I had gotten a Reg group picture again this year, but it wasn't fated to happen, it seems. ^^;;; Next year!!! I hope to return, because every year it's so much fun! A lot of hard work, but oh so worth it!!!!!! It was even worth the pain that I'm feeling right now in my feet, and that's saying a lot. *huggles all* I will miss you all!!!! I hope to return in a year!!!!!!!!!!! ^__________^ *loves*

BTW... HAPPY BIRTHDAY hitokiri_naveed!!!! Are you already 22??!?!!? Wai! Happy berfday to you, happy berfday to you! Happy Berfday to _(insert real name here)_, happy berfday to you!!!! I wish I was there to say it to you!

O_o Well glad you had fun. Sorry about the drama. I'm sure I'll hear it all eventually. If you're back into the swing of things by friday we have a date with De'vi for choreography.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 17th, 2004 07:40 am (UTC)
Yep, I'll be back on Wed morning, so consider me in commission then! ^^ Friday is great.. what time is our date? I can't wait to see the moves!! ^^
Naveed: Too Sexyhitokiri_naveed on May 17th, 2004 11:06 am (UTC)

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 17th, 2004 12:13 pm (UTC)
It IS scary! XDXD Okies, that time is more than doable! ^^

Sometimes a con isn't the best place to meet up and hang for more than a little while. I found that out a lot, since there were people I barely got to see. Of course...it didn't help that I was working more than I was actually at the con. Perhaps we should try something that doesn't involve a con as the magnetic factor, ne?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 17th, 2004 12:11 pm (UTC)
I don't know.. Did you have something in mind? I've travelled so much this year already, I don't have the money to go anywhere else.
Kyo-chankyofujimiya on May 17th, 2004 12:12 pm (UTC)
We'll figure something out...probably after your graduation and we see how the whole NOVA thing goes.
Saeriskippytoad on May 17th, 2004 10:44 am (UTC)
#_# Actually I think it was partly my fault too, since I totally meant to stop by reg before I left--that's where you were, right?--to say goodbye to everyone there, too, Cat and people. But the way things were going, I had to get my things to the car and get money and check out and run around, I very much forgot to go to reg until I was back in the hotel, and I didn't have time to traipse all the way to the conv. center.

So *hugs* goodbye now. :) Have a great trip back!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 19th, 2004 06:39 pm (UTC)
*hugs* Yesh, goodbye!!! *waves* But not forever! ^.~ Mind if I visit you in Germany?
Mattlain_wired on May 17th, 2004 05:14 pm (UTC)
Great seeing you too Jamie. It was awesome having you on Reg staff again, and hope that you will jump back into the fray again next year! Glad that you had a blast. Take care!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 19th, 2004 06:40 pm (UTC)
I had a blast! *huggles* I'll be back as long as my job allows (and plane tickets from Japan aren't *too* expensive... XD)
Mattlain_wired on May 20th, 2004 06:45 am (UTC)
Yep, it was definitely fun *huggles back*. Cool, hope that you can make it back next year. If not, have fun in Japan! ^O^
