The Great Con Post

This gallery contains 36 photos.

I came, I saw, I AggieCon’quered. It was my intention to do daily AggieCon posts, but I think I overestimated my stamina. I smiled, and I talked to people, and it was just more than I could take; I passed out pretty much as soon as the dealer’s room closed… Continue reading

So, once again, I present myself, a book, and a hat. So first I was like “VANNA HANDS”… And then I was like “That… Continue reading
