"Ring Ring! Who is it? (Anime) Destiny?? I've been expecting your call!"

I will most-likely be there! I'll make-sure to ask for the day off.

btw, is the Dwinelle Hall the location where it was held in 2004 or 2005, if anyone who went to either remembers?

Dwinelle Hall is a different building from before. 2004, it was held in the Valley Life Sciences Building. And 2005, it was in the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union. But Dwinelle seems to be in between those two.

Whoo, I'll definitely be at this one, seeing as I'm a UCB student right now. \o/

Dwinelle Hall is smaller than VLSB, and can be very easy to get lost in, at least in my experience. The hallways are kinda narrow. But it is a decent sized building, so that'll be pretty cool.

This'll be my first time attending Destiny! What to wear, what to wear...

W00tsauce. Remember the huge masquerade dance back in 05 when you and the judges went off for diliberations? that was certainly worth remembering. <3

Lol! I still remember that time when we all went up and I was the DDR pad cosplayer at the time. Good times! And my favorite part was watching AMV Hell 3 on the huge screen!

if i was down the hall deliberating the winners for the contest, how could I remember the dance? haha

it's too bad my friend, Kimberly, the one who helped start AD for those 2 years isn't around anymore. I'm sure she would be happy to know that the con she got going is making a return to the Berkeley-Anime scene.

X3 Yet another con I get to drag my boyfriend to. Yay! Once I talk with him and see if he wants to go, then I'll say whether or not I can attend. Though I may just do that. Sounds like a lot of fun. Hopefully better than the last con I attended to at a college.
