Yeah, the forums aren't my livejournal, but... what a weird day.
First, today is supposed to be the end of the world. Didn't believe it, but I felt off all day.
Second, making preparations to announce the new chair. That's just weird, because I've been breathing Fanime for three years, but now it's time to step back. Totally relieved to have a replacement, though!
Third, confirming Yoshiki. Him coming is one of those good problems to have, and I'm just amazed anyone at that level even knows who we are. Given all the circumstances surrounding his stop, I'm just amazed and honored.
Fourth, mid-way through the meeting... Vic Mignogna shows up. Like, what? We wanted to bring him this year, but he had schedule conflicts. But there he is, saying hi to everyone, wishing us luck. What a nice guy! And he, like, ate a cookie that my wife and I baked!
All kinds of random events in between.
FanimeCon is just plain surreal sometimes.
