A chubby comic
probably means i need to
lay off the brownies

Seriously, I’ve been eating too much crap lately. Things have been hectic and somehow I interpret that into a reason to shove sweets in my face. Bad Calan. As a result, you guys get bloated characters this week. Sowwy. 😛

So, one of the things I’m gearing up for is Convergence 14. It’s the annual gothic convention and I’ll be damned if it isn’t coming here to Tampa. It would have been nice to know this a month or two ago, but I just saw the first ad in the local alt newspaper a few days ago and sorta freaked out.  I really wanted a table there and wasn’t sure if it was too late.  I just got an email saying I can still get in so yay!

You can read up on the vendors, bands, djs, fashion designers and events here:


It would be cool if any of you are going to be there so you can say hi, shrug and walk away or throw things at me or whatever.

    Cupcakes and brownies
    Flubber Alert at the beach
    A timely comic

    Yes, a timely comic indeed–no more milkshakes for me. 😉

    Nutritious milkshakes
    Vitamins and calcium
    Tasty calories

    I would *never* throw anything at you, except perchance a glance or a bundle of goodwill, or even a skittle. So if you hear a soft clattering across your table and onto the floor, fear not. It’s probably an M&M.
    (I’m sorry I won’t be able to be there, because it sounds like fun!)

    it’s called Comfort food:
    into mouth arm, leg, torso
    milk, cookie diet

    warm brownie bites are definitely comforting, mmmz

    aw, i wish you could be there sera, would be cool to meet you. maybe the SL con in Sept…

    Wow, two haikus in one go, nice. I love Vens face in this one hehe.

    I very much wish i could attend the Convergence 14. Its just too far away and i can’t get the time off right now. It sucks but life tends to do things like that. It looks so cool too. I like most of the bands that are gonna be there and the venders seem interesting. I would finally get to meet you as well. So jelous 🙁

    Well if you put up two haikus i guess i will as well 🙂

    Having six small meals?
    Eating cupcakes and brownies
    will do in a pinch.

    Just dont overdo it.
    You may, lacking discipline,
    pinch more than an inch.

    the cupcake diet–
    will it be the next big fad?
    somehow I think not

    …at least not with *this* kind of P.R.

    But now I’m wondering how a skeleton puts on weight. I’d say “I’m dying to know” but you might take me literally.

    Sera — your mention of Skittles and M&Ms remind me of a party I went to many years ago thrown by a friend of mine. He’d put out a big bowl of mixed Skittles and M&Ms for the guests. We all wondered what he was thinking; they don’t really go together at all and it tasted kind of weird, but to each his own, I thought. Until another friend remembered how much the host loved puns, realized what was going on and let out a loud groan.

    You see, each Skittle has a little ‘s’ printed on it, just as each M&M has an ‘m’. So it was a big bowl of S&Ms.

    Justme-That…is the BEST idea I have EVER heard. S&M’S FOR ALL!

    It’s time to lay off.
    A moment of silence, please.
    Mourn for the sugar.

    Yeah, calan, I know how you feel. Whenever my Mom went on a diet, I had to go on it too. I’d usually bum my friends for sugar during those long months, but if she found out…I faced hell.

  7. calan Says:

    S & Ms ! Love it 😀 But, i agree those two flavors seem awful together. I’d pick all the M’s out for sure. Candy coated chocolate wins over sugar coated sugar any day.

    S is for Masochist, that’s good enough for me!

  8. calan Says:

    matt, would be great to meet you too. 🙂 honestly, if it weren’t local there’s no way i could swing it either. i just lucked out this year. yay!

    gluttonous chomping
    makes you tasty when rendered
    noble oblation

    oh this would be the bestest birthday present ever well late present anyway my 24th is next tuesday but unfortunately i have to work the days of the convention 🙁 and i dont think my aunt would appreciate me taking a 11 month old with me down town to a hotel. although he would look frekaing adorable with his hair spiked and colord and an all black outfit *note to self: next pay check go to fabric store and look up toddler clothes*

    have fun and if i know anyone going i’ll make sure they stop in and harrass you but in the fun way

  11. Seraphine Says:

    cupcakes sound delicious this morning.
    and coffee. avec creme et sugar.
    french rolls. french toast!
    french toast and coffee with
    cupcakes for dessert.

    aww amanda, it would be great to see you and baby goth! the vendor part is sat and sunday from 12 – 5 i think, but there are some killer night time events – bands mostly and the fashion show (which i don’t plan on missing). maybe you’ll squeeze in something. i’m guessing you dont have to have a badge to attend each event as some of them are over at the cigar factory where my guess is a cover charge gets you in. lemme know if you manage to attend anything and if i’m going to be there too, we’ll meet up – calanATgingerDeadDOTcom. 😉
