    It was great seeing you at DragonCon! I wish I’d seen more of the people you did. I didn’t realize there were two sets of Sleeping Beauty fairies.
    You have a very valid point about children. In years past I might have considered letting my kids go to DC (in fact my youngest did when she was very very little) but with the crowds rumored to be around 70k it was a madhouse.
    I was really impressed with how many people you ended up being able to talk to without being trampled to death.
    Can’t wait to see you there again next year!

    Oh and No Face! I don’t think I can explain how big a fan I am of the Studio Ghibli films. And 9! I found ONE piece of swag from 9 because they apparently didn’t send enough. It’s slightly bent up and about 7 (the one played by Jennifer Connely). Can’t wait to see that.

    I missed D*C so I’m glad for the pics! It’s almost like getting to go. Oh, well, not quite – but we can pretend!
