Before you read this post you should probably check out Alice's diary at Bring it On, as it's about something far more important than this. Just... just make sure you come back here.
I went to the Something Positive reader gathering at the Diesel Cafe last night I later found out that the Diesel is the number one place to go if you're under 21 and a dude who likes dudes. It didn't come up last night, and I hope that isn't seen as the sole reason to go there, because that place is pretty fucking sweet.
At first the sight of Randy Miholland was... well, not the one I'd expected, but after a bit it made sense. He was giving out free sketches, and drew me a sketch of a Redneck tree, which was really cool. I also made a new friend, and ran into a couple of people I already knew who I didn't know read S*P.
There was a rather large crowd looming over Randy for the first hour or so, but it turned out that most of them were more there for the sketches than to, you know, actually talk to the guy. So once those types left with their sketches, the gathering got a lot more chill. We started sharing stories, jokes, etc. It turns out that Randy is an awesome guy. He said he might be running a D&D game at Vericon, so I'll probably end up going.
Had my first class today. If this is going to be any indication of the way the rest of the semester is going to be going I might have to numb myself in order to make it. It's looking like a regression from my High school English class.
Then again, I've got Pshychology tommorrow, and I've never taken that, so that might turn out ok.
Oh and Pia, I'm waiting to hear what you have to say about this. I say too little too late.
