I may have to consider trying to find a new avatar soon. Celes is nice but I really just wanted Lelouch gone. He'd been there a couple years and I'd started getting my own avatars and signatures together, so I decided it was time to let him go. My signature on the other hand I adore, and despite having put together some other fun projects I just can't replace Frenda. This is what being proud of something does to you!
Not taking interest in much this season it seems. I'm the same way though. I try to take the time to watch the pilots of anything that even remotely strikes my fancy, but this is just such a pathetic season. I hold out some hope that I'll enjoy Strike the Blood and Pupa though. At least there's good stuff ready for next year...
Bah, I should. I had meant to go to my local convention this year but the event was so lacking in interesting panels that I decided not to. Maybe I'll have to go to one of the conventions that they have in Seattle one of these days. At least I could drive there!
Still, you're quite lucky that you have nice local conventions and such!
