I met them at the Hotel Fort Des Moines, and we went over to the Racoon River restaurant for dinner, which was lovely. I had to leave right after dinner to get back home and do laundry and pack, so I didn't get to spend whopping amounts of time, but it was nice seeing a familiar face.
And I am still caught off-guard by women with cat ears.
Onecheshire told me that I should stick around because tomorrow the hotel would be full of young women all dressed up as Sailor Moon.
Bear in mind that the demographics of the convention are primarily in the 16-22 range. And having a bunch of young (some underage) geek women in cat ears and short skirts would be very very bad for me, lecherous old fart that I am.
And of course I will be missing ICON as well, because I will be back in Minneapolis working on the house.
Short skirts and cat ears will be my downfall.
