My daughters are HUGE fans of Japanese Anime. T.V. shows, anime books, etc. Well, this weekend was a Anime convention called "Onicon". This is a convention that has lots of things related to Anime, video games, books, etc. There are speakers, games (like live chess where you have to simulate a battle if you are taken) concerts, lectures, and celebrities (not Kardashian like thank-GOD! my daughter was goo-goo over a Japanese composer! yay)

When there are so many kids out drinking and being wild, I must say I embrace this fully!
Let Geekdom Reign! ...besides, nerds own the world, didn't you know that?
