Is that a comic convention?

If so, have you got your own stand?

I legitimately don’t know all I see when I see MFF is the different genders in a threesome

I mean if that’s the sort of convention you’re going to then that opens up a lot more potential questions

A furry convention. MFF stands for Midwest FurFest

If you do have a stand, how high do you mount yours up the tree? How early in the morning are you there for? What seasons are open during your trip?

EDIT: In retrospect, making hunting jokes unintentionally in context of a furry convention was a bit too dark

What band is your stand named after, and what horribly mangled name is the English translation using?

Do you have any plans to do stuff at the convention besides sell things? Hopefully it won't solely be work for you.

Actually going to meet up with a ton of people there, including hanging out with Chicago-area Ponygoons.

Lots of people I know are going to MFF, turns out, so i'll be doing a fair bit of socializing.

I'm going to be having roommates for this trip, so it should be easier to have other people helping me this time.

My flight leaves at 6am tomorrow, so I'll have to wake up early for it :-I

I will be bringing a banner with me.

Wish I could go to MFF. I've looked at going off and on for the last few years, but it's at pretty much the single worst time of the year for me personally to make any significant plans :-I

Mr. Big, of course!

I'm surprised there's not a stand with this name in the real anime, since Mr. Big was apparently especially popular in Japan.

It's probably too similar to Notorious B.I.G., which was a stand in Part 5.

I saw a mouse at the hotel hallway.

Good job :-I

You realize that you’ll end up engaging in hijinks if an overly dramatic tuxedo kitten shows up and attempts to shame you into fighting the mouse to get the cookie back, right :-P

Yesterday was busy. Got off the plane, met up with a cartoonist I've been corresponding with; we ate pizza in a Jewish part of Chicago, and it was GOOD.

Later went back to my hotel to meet up with my roommates, then went to a nearby Walgreens to get my FedEx package I shipped. Then met up with Octavia, Adelor, Lhet, and Snek. We ate pizza for dinner (I had a lot of pizza yesterday :-I). Also great!

Plan is to get our badge at MFF today. There are some events, so maybe might go to them.

Not even noon yet and already there's drama :v:
