I'm really sorry for not replying notes and emails those days. Thank you for my greatest friend
helping me replying the comments when I'm sick. Great thank you for you, and thank you for everyone who loves our arts. Your love is the reason we keeping going.
I caught a cold after came back from New York, because tiredness(played too much maybe). I haven't got sick for about 4 years, so this time was really serious. Old Japanese saying says:"The Fool Doesn't Catch a Cold." It's totally a lie > <
And I felt done from the bus on 7th, the setting up day for New York con, wearing very short dress, so my knee hurt really bed. I didn't had time to see the doctor through 3 days con. As the sand on the ground stayed, it got worse. It has been almost three weeks, still haven't healed yet.
And (yes, there's more), I lived in a friends house, which has bedbug. I really appreciated he let me stay and gave his bed to me, and slept on the ground. It just, the bedbug became a big headache in my NY trip. The interesting thing is, the bedbug don't bite anyone else but me. That was just totally unfair. I got around 40 bites after all. Almost eaten by bedbugs. Luckily my friend in bio-chem major just made me a kinda medical for bug bites(I was very easy to get mosquito bites), and it came right on time, saved me from the bites.
Besides those, everything else is cool in New York. My friends came from everywhere. Totally 18? 20? I didn't even count. 7 or 8 of them came from Canada for the con. Most of others we haven't see each other for years. We went to dinner concert, Karaoke, and party before bed, like in college.If you were in NYCC/NYAF and stopped by our booth, you might already met some of my them.
I'm thinking next time we should can just host a pure Artist Convention, and offer free tickets for everyone to come to have fun with us.╮(╯▽╰)╭
Back to the topic, my next convention is MangaNext, East Brunswick, NJ,October 29-31 2010
which is this weekend. I have only one table in artist ally. Hope you could still find me. I think this would be a great con, you enjoy the convention fri-sun and go see the Halloween Pride in New York City on Sunday evening. Halloween is always a sleepless night in NY. I remembered 2 years ago I took bus back home on 4am the morning after Halloween, the bus was very crowd.
I'm taking bus to NY, since I don't think I should driving when I'm sick. I'm trying to find someone who can pick me up in NY, share the hotel room and give me ride from hotel to con every morning. I know it's a very last min change, but if anyone could help, I would be really appreciate.
