Upon the precipice of catitude- NYAF/CC2010
The con was so good, cats ask for it by name. SO LET'S START THERE.
I barely spent time at the con because I was with Marion, AND YES WE'RE THAT ANNOYING COUPLE. But we also wanted to go to the con, and without getting into the other specifics first, LET'S GO DIRECTLY TO THE HIGHIGHLIGHT AND ITS BUILDUP.
We went to the Venture Brothers panel, which I had been looking forward to having loved VB since I started watching the first season in my dorm room many moons ago out of boredom and probably that Mexico mention in the first episode, as well as what seems to be some marathoning on my part, but that was undergrad, can't remember everything.
So I finally saw Doc Hammer and Publick, Panel was fun, probably on youtube somewhere, and afterwards, I tried to go up the stage with Dylan, Karen, Jared, Cesar, Marion, and myself, but they walked away. We left, and I started to scope out the alleyways in case they came out (having part stalker in me pays offs occasionally). I spotted them behind a curtain, ran up, and asked Doc, "Can I take your picture?" to which he replied, "if that's all you do." I proceeded behind the curtain and awaited for him to be available, as he was talking to someone else, but he started to talk off, and I called out to him, to which he turend around and gave me some peace-signs. I called him a dick, and Marion said we'd probably get along because of our dickish snarkiness.
So flash forward to the next day, around 3/4PM. I was walking around with Marion after encountering Kelly, and I turn and see blonde hair with black tips, instantly recognizing Doc amidst the chaos. I decided to confront him.
Rob: "Remember me? Can I actually get a picture with you now?"
Rob: "Yeah, I asked for a picture, though I guess I should have said WITH you"
Doc: "Well it's your fault for phrasing it incorrectly" -takes camera away from Rob and starts taking random pictures of us together-
Rob: "So do you get tired of people praising you all the time- not that you don't deserve it, but it's all that sucking upness, it must get old" -animosity-
Doc: "Do I get tired of it? No! This only happens once a year, otherwise my life is just like yours. Except I have an awesome cat.
Rob's brain: "OH NO YOU FUCKING DIDN'T JUST SAY THAT"
Rob's heart: "WAIT THAT MEANS HE LOVES CATS"
Rob's mouth: "OMG I HAVE A CAT TOO"
Doc: "I HAVE PICTURES OF MY CAT"
Rob: "SO DO I" -both of us take out our cellphones-
Rob and Doc: "CALICOS ARE THE BEST"
Marion: -shows video of Mufa that she has-
Doc: "SHE'S SO CUTE"
Rob: "SO IS YOURS"
-commence 10 minutes of cattalk awesomeness and bromancing-
Random kid: "Oh wow, Doc Hammer, can I have your-"
Rob: "BACK. THE. FUCK. AWAY. THIS IS MY HAMMER TIME (lol)"
Marion: "lolololol I was right"
Rob: "FUCK I DIDN'T TELL HIM MY NAME
Marion and Rob start search for him and actually find him AGAIN
Doc: "Hey! -handshake-
Rob: "My name's Rob btw"
Doc: "People think my name is Doug"
Rob: "Do you want me to draw you a cat?"
Doc: "Sure, I'll put it on my fridge!"
Rob: -draws kitty-
Doc: "Thanks, you guys have fun! -handshake to Rob, pat on back to Marion, HE ACTUALLY MEOWED BACK AT ME WHEN I MEOWED
Marion: "I WAS RIGHT FOR ONCE AND IT WAS AMAZING"
Oh right, and uh, rest of con was pretty equally amazing. From getting free stuff at the artist alley anime-side BECAUSE WE WERE IN YAKITATE AWESOMENESS, to getting Tara McPhereson to draw something for Marion and Camille D'Errico to call us CUTE and I'm pretty sure one of them said I was an awesome boyfriend, WHICH I AM FYE, LADIES, I'M SINGLE ;D. Well...I'm not, but...STILL. To having Marion rub Kelly and Kelly rub Marion, to, albeit for a short time, hanging with alot of awesome faces (Jared, Gianna,Cesar, Karen, so forth, don't wanna numerate so I don't alienate, RHYMES), to seeing OOOOLD faces like Karen, to meeting Coheed and Cambria's frontman, Claudio, just chilling there (a SECOND time Marion was right :o!), and him being awesomely nice, to free stuff free stuff free stuff as well Christine-squeeze-time which is always important of course!, and all the little caveats that I'm still jazzed from hearing Marion to tell a girl to 'watch out bitch' and swooning over her big balls ;x and OH GEEZ SERIOUSLY, this con was just above and beyond expectations. Even with such low expectations, and just being there for a few hours each day because we wanted alone time BECAUSE WE'RE THAT ANNOYING COUPLE and because I had to catch a flight home WHICH WAS AWESOME JETBLUE I'M USING YOU FROM NOW ON and the other awesome rest of the week beforehand which was non-con-related and Facebook otherwise explores and now I'm run-off-sentencing at this pint, BUT YEAH DESPITE ALL OF THAT, it was STILL the best con. I don't care how freaking big the con was, Eden'ing with Marion, Yakitate love, catmazing celebrities, doing sweet things for my sweetheart (TOLD YOU), EVERYTHING, just SO GOOD. SO. GOOD.
I'll see you guys again (con-wise) in a few months ;x.
NO CUTS BECAUSE EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS
