I do not normally speak a lot outside of the net, but my goal for ACen us to start random conversations and befriend people. ^^- I did a pretty good job last year, so this year I plan to do even better.

So if a short, chubby blond talks to you, don't be afraid. XD
I tried changing my avatar and it said I needed permission? I've never had that problem before and I've been on this forum for many years, so what gives?

Actually wouldnt it be best to give a nickname or somethint instead of the screen name cause many people can use the same screen name. Just thinking, i might know what i am talking about though:p . Anyway what happens at this little event. I have never been to one

I should be able to be there on Thursday. We got our rooms tonight Thursday-Saturday. So if a shy girl in a bearsuit.. or just a plain old Gaara T-shirt.. is there, it's most likely me. And.. MAYBE a very tall boy who's hair is black and so stiff it can poke your eye out. He won't be dressing up, but to some people what he wears everyday could be considered as dressing up.

Its a lot of fun. You meet up with random people chat, and you tell them your forum name and then you just make instant friends. When I went last year. It was awesome. I told them my forum name and people were like "OMG I KNOW YOU. YOURE THE FORUM ***** :D " And then im glomped. We take pictures and just chat about whatever all night long. Im still friends with the people I met last yeat. Its a lot of fun.

I will be there if I can find the damn fountain. Somehow, I manage to get lost in the Hyatt every friggin' year I go...that's what happens when you live in the wilderness.

sounds koo,

what time do you guys usually come thursday? to the hotel i mean?

I know you guys said the meeting is at 9pm..

but what time do you guys get at the hotel?


ok, and I think I'll make it...if I write it down..i forget if i don't write it down.

anyways...i'll try to find some fountain if you guys know if it's still around.


i'm like karma and wildcat i'm pretty shy at first too..always have that feeling of sounding stupid or saying something ackward.

but meeting others that like anime like I do is always great, cause none of my friends are into that..cept some online friends. and that's koo that there's a great convention near me.

Uh, I'll be there around 12-3... we normally(my family and I) leave our home town at 5 or 6 in the morning and it takes us about 6 hours to get to Rosemont... and with a few pitstops. :)

Considering that they're gutting that entire hotel for renovation before ACen, we may need to be on the lookout for another location within the hotel after it's done.

Yeah... you'd imagine that we might...

That's a good question to ask staff members, if we'll be able to get a hold of a renovated hotel map so we can redo our meeting locations, if we have to.

Hey Excel, it'd be awesome if you could put the information (when you decide who, what, where, when, why and how) on the first or second post *nodnod*

So I'll be there from Thursday to Monday ... so any day is good for me .... unless it's during the glomp team meetup :P
