KCON Meetup Info (to come)

Clarifications and Omissions
  • Stephanie does not actually promise Leila hugs to attendees. Thou shall not pimp out your friends for attendees. Plus, Stephanie doesn’t like to share.
  • Stephanie does not actually promise to give out money to people who attend. Actually. The first person who mentions the podcast gets a prize!
Stephanie would like to probably apologize to the following:
  • Leila. You all heard it. You know why.
  • Listeners who wanted a dollar.
  • Listeners who wanted a Leila hug.
  • Listeners who were all like, what happened to the bad mood, you sound fine to me! What can she say, who can stay mad while talking with friends about K-stuff?
  • She feels like she should apologize to reaction video people. Both doers and fans. But Cherry was the one who brought it up, so she won’t. (Cherry note: Oh, the reaction-hate was so out-of-nowhere and strongly-felt that there was no way I wasn’t bringing *that* up. 😛 )
Thanks for listening! See you next time.

    I now have hug anxiety. Too much pressure! People are going to be all “Meh, the teasers were better.” And what if Cherry and I just stare at each other awkwardly?
