...The first year they had me puttin' wheels on Cadillacs. Every day I'd watch them beauties roll by
library_lynn and I are here at Costume College. We're in room 185, and we're running an animelosangeles Peanut Butter & Jelly Room. It's a daytime hospitality suite, open 10am-6pm Friday/Saturday, because the convention con suite is only open during the evening. We may keep it open other hours, depending on our whim -- for example, tonight I'll probably keep it open until 9pm or 9:30, because poor Lynn is on the road retrieving something she left at the house and I've got little else to do.

We're also babysitting the Costume Exhibit, which is right across the hall in room 186.

We have soft drinks, water, Frappuccinos, Elvis-style Reese's Chocolate Banana Cream Peanut Butter Cups, fresh fruit and veg, iced tea, green tea, two kinds of bread, two kinds of peanut butter, and grape jelly & strawberry jam. And more stuff.

Stop on by and say hi! You don't need to be a member of Costume College to check out their dealers room, either... So far we've had 22 people visit, which is not bad.

And Alexander the Cart turned up! You may recall that I bought myself a folding cart, and painted it purple, and named it after the Otter Pop character Alexander the Grape. It went missing... turns out about two years ago an Airtel maintenance man found it in a closet, and they've been making heavy use of it ever since. Remind me to paint a name and phone number on the bottom of each of the other carts!
