How was Detour '08?

I missed out on it this year because of my senior musical, but I'd like some feedback on what I missed. Did you all get some good pictures? Meet new people? Have a funny, cool, or humiliating story to share?

Hopefully, I'll make it to next year's Detour. I'm aiming for Anime Iowa '08 right now.

Ja ne!

Okay, why is America called the "land of freedom and opportunity" when we discriminate and suppress people every day? Can anyone answer me that?

Well there was a "hump line" in the court yard on Saturday. Ah good times. XD The good thing is you got to miss a HUGE registration line.

I had a blast! Our group won best in show for our Eva skit, i was so happy! All the skits this year were incredibly cute, I'm actually sad that the dancing KH group didn't get anything, I'm kind of sick of seeing dancing or dance-off skits, but dancing Axel was really adorable to "cant touch this" xD

I know! My friend was the Axel. She really should have won.

I got a pic of you and a few others in your group with Bender outside. ^_^

Sounds like a lot of fun. Anyone have any good pictures or video available for viewing?

My friend and I saw that. Didn't they start another one a few minutes later in a different part of the courtyard?

I remember there was one main line, then when we got to the door, they put us in another line because of our last names...IMO, they should have done that beforehand, but oh well. Hopefully they'll separate things out a little better next year =P

It started by the pool then shifted to the lobby mainly because the line for the cosplay was gone. But then more people appeared by the pool so we moved back over there.
