MechaCon 7 took place from August 26-28 of 2011 :) This is just a preview of all the fun Reiko and I had :D

My Day Out With Reiko

Here's the video I've been working on for a while now :) Just me and Reiko trolling around Houma together. Good times, good times :3

Just checking in with another (enormous) vlog. I wanted to show something that I found, that I almost forgot I had...not to mention announce (formally) big news for August :)

MechaCon IV - The End

The competition is over and I'm totally out of material to record to. So, here's the final check in with me and Reiko :)

MechaCon IV 02

Mecha Con IV 01

2011-May-02, Monday 06:18 pm
msmoon: (Applause)
Here's the first video of Reiko's and my trip to MechaCon. It was Reiko's first visit to MechaCon and my second (though I had no company last time). We made our own fun when we had to and had fun the rest of the time, so it worked out well. More videos to follow (as soon as I can edit them :3).

Mecha Con Plans

2011-Apr-30, Saturday 09:45 pm
msmoon: (Kermit YAY)

So… I got a call from Reiko not too long ago. She was driving/moving back down to Louisiana. Her hubby Jim is deploying soon, so they wanted to get her and baby Owen fully moved down there. The rent is much cheaper, and she wont be alone in a city she doesn’t like surrounded largely by people she don’t know.

And then she tells me, “Are you taking the Summer off? Because if you are, I will pay for your plane ticket down here. In fact, when’s Louisiana-Con??”

I had never even heard of Louisiana Con, so I googled it. I didn’t find anything, but … I did find Mecha Con. It's in August, and it moved to New Orleans. And that sounds most promising.

Reiko’s and my last hoo-ra was Mecha Con in 2008 (Mecha Con IV). It. Was. A Blast! We ended up making friends (who no longer speak to us) and got some swag, and I took tons of video (which I still haven’t edited fully), and I took so many pics that I made a huge pair of matching scrapbooks for both of us. It was just one of those experiences that was so fun and enjoyable for both of us that we both look back on it fondly. And, needless to say, the prospect of going back with Reiko is exciting :)

So, this year, Mecha Con’s gonna be in New Orleans instead of Lafayette. It’ll be from August 26 −28th. My Dad’s told me that he has had a ton of Delta Sky miles all built up from flying offshore so much over the years, so he’s offered to let me use his sky miles for the flights, which would be awesome. Then all we have to worry about is our passes and the hotel rooms. I’m actually hoping to save up some money before then… Lord knows it won’t be much, but it’s better to be conscious of it than forgetful.

It’d be nice if I could visit with more of the girls more often, but none of us have ideal circumstances for visits. Jen’s in Georgia and a student like me. Chibi’s busy with her dream job in NV. And Scamp, though closer, is still tormented by her own SAD. So, I console myself knowing it just isn’t the right time with the others, and enjoy the prospect of spending time with Reiko :)

So, it looks like I'll be flying down some time at the end of August to New Orleans :) I'm really looking forward to it, and already making plans now. I really hope all the plans go through.

Endless Tornado

2010-Jun-10, Thursday 05:30 pm
msmoon: (Supernatural - Drama!)

I hate ambiguity, and I hate it when things are vague. I like it when people go to each other and say exactly what it is they want to say. I made a statement on Twitter, and for some reason just because I stated my opinion it drew an enormous amount of aggro. Mostly from my cousin, Scamp, but also from a few people I never even met...which is exactly why I didn't bother giving them any replies. Those that are important to me are important... and that's just how it is for me.

I said, and I quote, "What's all this I hear about boycotting BP? So because one rig made a huge mistake we're going to put millions into unemployment? Geeze -..-" I followed a statement that 'BP had to be punished' with "That's a tad illogical. BP is a company. The crew on the rig are the ones who made the mistake. I'm guessing they are paying. And no ammount of punishment will fix the problem -..-" This is a statement that I still believe and stand by.

I've always felt that I could discuss anything with Scamp, because we've always discussed anything with one another before. We didn't always agree, but it didn't seem to matter. I thought her friendship was worth more than our differences... which is how I see all my friends. But then this came up and she seemed to get furious with me... Several things were said. I felt that I stated my opinions objectively. But Scamp said several things as well, and a lot of it seemed as though is was to purposefully hurt me.

She posted that she didn't want 'to hear people on their high horse, preaching' which I certainly didn't think I was doing. I thought I was stating my opinion. She also said that since I'm not physically there I have no right to my opinion... which is not only ludicrous, but hurtful. So, because I've moved that means the place I was born and raised in, the place I spent 25 years growing in, and learning how to live life in, is suddenly none of my business? I can't have an opinion about it because I've moved? I replied with "dont think for an instant that I've forgotten the wetlands. I just understand that no ammount of punishment will make it right. You can punish BP all you want. When your villian is gone, you'll still have oil in your wetlands. Forgive me for seeing a biger picture. It'll only put millions of families into unemployment if you just focus on punishment." She said that she was 'standing up for people who couldn't stand up for themselves'.... to which I replied, "And btw, this is a discussion over twitter. You aren't really standing up for anyone. You're tweeting"... she then said that if I was there she'd say it to my face, which ... wasn't what I meant at all. After all, saying or not saying anything to my face doesn't really qualify as 'standing up for' anyone or anything. It's just talking. To stand up for anything, it actually requires that you do something. And all we were doing was talking.

I was then told that I shoved Christianity down her throat, another thing I don't remember, and that our friendship was under a strain...another thing I was unaware of. I loved it when she'd text me and ask me to listen to her talk about her ideas... I loved working through those ideas with her until she reached a conclusion. And she helped me too. I'd always thought of her as my friend despite our difference and I thought she considered me the same... distance was never an issue either. At least not to me.

She then ended the whole thing with a simple 'see you' and deleted her Twitter account.

I was hurt by everything that was said, but I breathed through it and reasoned that she's probably too sensitive about the issue right now (at least, the whole BP oil spill issue) to look at it objectively, being in the thick of it and all. It still hurt that she couldn't see that any fool who turned on the news, and understood that area, would see and be affected by the situation. I swear, I saw the pictures on the Yahoo news page of the brown pelican covered in oil and I just collapsed into sobs...I told myself to just let her breath, take a breath myself... feel the pain and hope that some time would help us both....

Then Scamp posted a huge entry in her journal saying, essentially, that her friends never treated her as well as she thought, and it was only in looking back that she realized it. She mentioned that some of them talked behind her back, and she always heard about it, and she said that people saw her as a friend of leisure...she also said that some people complain that their friends forget them and she didn't understand why they treated her the same way. She didn't name names, I noticed and after reading it I concluded that it had nothing to do with me. There was another few posts, one of which was deleted, but I still was too hurt to comment. I couldn't say anything because every time it just hurt and depressed me.

But then I began to wonder.... is she talking about me? Because that can't really be possible. I treat her badly? I neglect her? I talk behind her back? I treat her as a friend of leisure? No... I certainly wasn't a friend of leisure every time she mentioned that she needed a break and I drove 4 hours to pick her up and bring her to my place. Considering gas prices, it wasn't convenient but it was always worth it because being with her is fun and I always enjoyed it, despite the fact that I had to go out of my way and get her. I would say it also wasn't 'convenient' to pay for everything - every meal and every movie we went to. And believe me, meals at Zen weren't always cheap. And the many gifts that I got for her? The 50th anniversary edition Lord of the Rings and leather-bound Hobbit (books I didn't have for myself, I bought them for myself later). Or I wouldn't say that I'd forgotten about her when I won the once a month drawing for Figure Prints and automatically thought, "I gotta get Fallena for Scamp!!".... These were all things that I just did without even thinking about them, because it just seemed natural. I certainly don't remember ever talking behind her back about her, though I got a few lectures from people about her talking about me and Mom behind our backs.... should I believe all those horrid things that were told to me? 

I texted Reiko, a simple message 'Am I a difficult friend?' She immediately called me back, asking why the hell I would ask. I explained what was going on. There were several 'what!''s  on her part, but I told her to think about it, because I hate to just dismiss someone's words... I asked her if she thought our friendship was strained because we were so far apart. There was a pause and then several expletives later, Reiko had heartily assured me (in her own way) that she couldn't fathom it. That she and I had been friends since she was 9 and that even though we were so different, she'd always thought of me as her closest friend.

I told her that maybe I should call more often, but I feel like I'm the one with no life, so I'd just be bothering everyone. I mean, Reiko has her job and her husband... Scamp has various ailments and I hate the thought that I'd bother her when she's in pain, and she's also got a fiance that she's separated by a greater distance than me, so... I feel like I might call and interrupt them or something... And Chibi...well, Chibi's always been so busy with school and she rarely answers her cell anyway... so. Feeling insignificant has made me hesitant to call, and being ignored a lot has made me feel as though when no one is talking to me nothing is out of order. It's not like I have a lot to report, so why bother calling or e-mailing? 

Reiko told me to call her whenever, and not to even worry about anything. So at the very least, I know that she doesn't feel I've behaved badly (Oh yeah, and Reiko was in Louisiana after a cousin's wedding, and she had the nerve to tell me she was eating crawfish -..- cruel girl). It made me feel a little better, but it still really didn't resolve the issue.

It feels like a tornado I'm just being swept up into, and I keep going round and round and round....And the more I go, the more hurt I am that all those good times are gone. Either way I look at it, I can't help but feel hurt and betrayed and cheated. And because I'm so hurt by it all, I just sit here and tell myself not to react. But I'm not feeling any better. I resolve not to be miserable, but even thinking about it is like gouging and new wound.

I don't really know what to think anymore. I'm just... hurt and confused. And I really just want to take a breath, and go back to how things were. But, I'm not sure if it will anymore...
