The New York Anime Festival has come and gone. It was nowhere near the epic proportions of Otakon, but it was fun nonetheless! And it was great seeing faded_lace and storm_of_62, even if we did have to rush around a lot.

A summary of the weekend:

Most overused phrase: That's redick.

Most omnipresent cosplay: Light and L.

Most overused threat: Sodomy by umbrella.

Most excellent item I purchased: A tie between the FMA print of my two OTPs (Roy, Ed, Scar, and Al) and the super-special-awesome birthday present I got for Hilde!

Also, we actually did stuff at the con! XD;;;

-Saw a movie called Ping Pong about two high school boys who love to play ping pong. It was cute and ghey~
-Went to a voice actor panel that had a disturbing number of people from Pokemon, and also the woman who did Amy Rose in the more recent Sonic games and Serenity in Yu-Gi-Oh. Oh, and lots of people from Yu-Gi-Oh 5Ds. XD;;;;
-Saw the first two and a half episodes of Code Geass. Were confused. (I'd kind of like to see more of it, though...)
-Went to a Q&A panel with Tanaka Rie!

And our Araiso cosplay was rather epic, even if no one recognized us. We had a pretty awesome photo shoot last night, and our pictures will be posted by Miranda as soon as possible! (There might be a bit of a wait, though, because of homework and whatnot.)

And now, I should do my homework >.>

So I'll go with amused...

This afternoon I got an email from my RA which included the following:

"The Office of Multicultural Affairs is coming to our lounge this TUESDAY at 8 PM to hold a Diversity Talk. This is a mandatory event, so everyone must attend unless you notify me previously about something like a class conflict. These Diversity Talks are held every year to discuss issues of diversity and acceptance at Barnard, so it really is important that you attend."

So after my initial reaction ("That's during my physics lab"), my next reaction was, "Wait...that's still Rosh Hashanah for people who celebrate two days, aka most Jewish people..."

The diversity talk is on Rosh Hashanah. XD;;;;;

Then just now I got a second email from her:

"A few residents have emailed me about the fact that they can't make it to the meeting because it's Rosh Hashannah. The tragic irony of holding diversity talks on the night of a major religious holiday is pretty apparent to everyone except the Office of Multicultural Affairs. Go figure. If anyone else has a religious conflict, I completely understand and I'll make a point of letting OMA know about that."

I'm sure it was just an oversight on their part, which is why I'm just going with amused and not angry/offended, but...just wow.
