I’m usually the one who…: ends up with incriminating pictures of herself on strangers’ cell phones

Funniest Weetacon Incident: Hm.  Toss up between the time I yelled “Fuck snow!” and a homeless lady answered with “AMEN!” or the time I ordered only one pancake because “those things are fucking HUGE” and the waitress agreed with me.  Of course, those may have only been funny because they happened post-Bad Bar (if you know what I mean) (and if you don’t, then YOU NEED TO BE HERE).  Of course, there was also the time JenFu and I murdered “Sweet Child O’Mine”, and the time Jake and Jared massacred The Carpenters while a very lovely couple danced the night away.  But I think the homeless lady thing was funnier.

  1. Mel finally convinced me to register last year. I have to admit, before I met The Tribe, she and Kevin were the biggest draw for me. (See, I’d developed a huge crush on both of them from JCDC, 2004.)

    She even let me shadow her when I felt any anxiety all weekend. She rocks hard.
