Argh!

Annoying customers

I don't mind people flipping through the comics, what bugs me is the jackasses who spend TEN FREAKING MINUTES standing in front of my table reading a book, getting greasy fingerprints all over it, then putting the book down and walking off.

People like that I want to hit upside the head!

The book costs THREE DOLLARS, DAMMIT! If it interests you that much, JUST BUY THE DAMN THING! Don't block access to my table and get fingerprints all over my merchandise.

Califur Final Report

Sales were MUCH better on the second and third days. Combined with the small dealer's room, I actually left with more money in my wallet than when I started, a rare event for me at cons (usually I end up spending everything I make on comics).

I was a bit disappointed that they didn't have the paperwork ready to buy tables for next years con, I always try to get that taken care of at the con so I can hand them the money in person and get a reciept.

The Exploding Whale video was quite popular.

There were a couple ladies walking around wearing EXTREMELY tight pants/shorts. Mrrrr.

There seemed to be a much higher percentage of the fairer sex at this con than usual.


But overall, it was a fairly uneventful con. But I'll be back next year.
