After thinking about it all day, I decided to start a small fundraiser to help defray the costs of getting to Otakon.  For those interested in helping out, I encourage you to take a look at my store’s offerings, and if you so prefer, you can make a donation directly right here with PayPal.  There’s also a link in the sidebar for quick reference.

Thank you all for the kind comments both here and on twitter.  I’m feeling a lot better than I did this morning (I think another nap was a big factor) and things aren’t looking quite so bleak.
