more so because of the people, all dancing in a circle.
and how physical some of the dancing got.
when individuals made their way into the middle.
all in all it was fun and hilarious, but..awkward.
haha.
I thought that was a little odd myself. It's the first time I saw anyone dance in a circle during a dance. It didn't happen last year.

It was still fun to watch. More people need to learn the Thriller though :D

Normally I would have found this funny, but what made it awkward is that my mother was standing next to me at the time, helping me take down my luggage >_<


One thing I learned from this con is that Simon is a molester target. I had my chest groped about five or six times by girls I don't know and once my a guy. Every time it was equally awkward.

Also, being stroked by some random lady dressed as L Friday night while I was dressed as Tamaki. Very awkward and a tad bit creepy.



Meeting you was kinda awkward. XD


Haha, agreed. It was very awkward. I just thought it was you (saw the boxing gloves) and thought it'd be cool to introduce myself.

I found the charity ball all sorts of awkward. I mean. I had fun. Rachel and I danced around and did what we do and didn't give a flying crap about anyone else. but it was kind of just. awkward. and everyone sat around

Omgsh i know! Me and my friend started the little thriller.
But we didn't have as many people as we wanted haha.
We tried though, we also started that huge macarena dance.

Probably one of the most awkward moments for me was during the name call for Cosplay Shougi. There was this guy who's name was read off as "Phil" and after he raised his hand, I said "Hey! My name's Phill too!" and then came awkward silence

I really was awkward! There wasn't really any outstanding waltz-y music (that I heard), so I was just sitting on the sidelines... But when I did get to dance, I kept accidentally bumping into this one girl in particular, and she was giving me the dirtiest looks ever. ._. I wanted to grab her shoulders, give her a good shake, and rant about how hard it is to waltz properly in a kimono. xP

Yeah. The ball was fun, but I was getting sick of not really dancing, so I kinda just grabbed one random guy and we danced for like 20 seconds. I saw him later talking to one of his friends and they were looking over at me...totally felt like they thought I was a creeper. :( so if he's reading this: sorry! I didn't mean to freak you out!

I thought it was all sorts of awesome. You just kinda have to go for it. Screw the people sitting and dance like you just don't care.

explaining to people that i wasn't a legoman, but was actually a Servbot.

(after the 100th one, i just gave up and played along with it)

kudos to the people that got it right though :)

I was one of the people who got it :)

Anywhoo... Saying hi really loud to a girl who looked like Chloe but wasn't Chloe.

And going into the rave. I don't do raves, and had no idea what I was doing in there.

I have a great photo of you on the elliptical in the pool area! Makes me laugh every time I see it:

Did it make you sad how many people didn't recognize the Servbot? It makes me a little sad! Servbots are way cooler than Lego men. And it's not like Capcom hasn't whored them out all over the place. They were in Marvel vs Capcom, and there are Servbot heads in Dead Rising, to name a few instances.
