Molly, who’s done guest relations at AdventureCon, is running the registration desk that Yumiko (not Yumie) shows up at.

Yumiko: Design one, please.

Staffer: Aren’t you sweet! Is there a nun in your family?

Yumiko: Actually, I would like to be a nun myself. I haven’t taken my vows yet, but I got permission to wear this for the con.

Narration: Yumiko and her other personality, Yumie, worked out some kind of time-share agreement for the weekend.

Staffer: You are just too cute. Here’s your bag. Enjoy the con!

Narration: Yumie will be waking up for, say, the panel on the Inquisition. We insisted it be Yumiko who registered.

Imaginary Yumie: I don’t like any of these designs!

Enrico: Not recognizing me…grr…he oughta study his popes…

Heinkel: Relax, chief…whoa! They canceled the workshop on woodcuts!

Enrico: WHAT?! How am I going to become the next Albrecht Dürer without a workshop?

Narration: (So much for that plan to impress my parents. Back to square one.)

Heinkel: Yeah, the guy who was going to do it is off helping reunify Germany. But you’ll like what they got to replace it —

Do-it-yourself exorcism.

Enrico: I am SO there.

Definition Corner: Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) was famous for his woodcuts, which depicted saints, Christ, and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Manning the registration desk is Dumas. He’s volunteered at the registration desk at MomoCon.

Narration: Heinkel just threw some sheets together and is calling it a Mother Teresa costume, which I think is slacking. Besides, she’s not even a saint.

Staffer: Which badge design do you want?

Heinkel: This one.

Staffer: Here. And I just want to say, I love your outfit!

Heinkel: Thanks!

Staffer: And which design would you like, um…

Enrico: Pope Marcellus II! Do you not see the sheepskins?

Staffer: Oh, of course. Pick a badge, Your Holiness.

Definition Corner: After Mother Teresa of Calcutta’s death in 1997, she was beatified by Pope John Paul II. Beatification is not the same as being declared a saint (“canonization”), but it’s a significant step on the way.

Fangirl Karaoke: Next Contestant

Fangirl Karaoke: Next Contestant published on No Comments on Fangirl Karaoke: Next Contestant

The song is an awesome one that could fit AxI without being changed; but GameBuster89@aol.com’s AxI-specific parody is much more clever.

A reader came up with this rendition of Nickelback’s “Next Contestant” during a boring biology video. Hooray for boring videos, I say! From Alucard’s point of view, in case it isn’t immediately obvious.

I judge by how she’s glaring
Just how many heads I’m tearing
Off the freaks all trying to kill her
(Each night, seems like it’s getting worse)

I wish she’d take her tie off
So I can try to suck out
Every drop of Hellsing blood in her
(I dream it every night she works)

Freaks come and point their small guns
It’s time that I had some fun
Tearing up freaks coming after her
(Don’t they know it’s never gonna work)

They think they’ll get to kill her
With every ghoul they send her
As they all try coming after her
(This time somebody’s getting hurt)
Here comes the next contestant

Is that! Your hand! On my! Master! Is that your ha-aaaa~and?
I wish you’d do it again
(I’ll watch you leave here in dust)
I wish you’d do it again
(I’ll watch you leave here in dust)
There goes the next contestant

I even fight the humans
They’re weak but twice as loony
Just as bad for trying to kill her
(Don’t they know it’s never gonna work)

Each time she bats an eyelash
A freak I’m tempted to blast
Everyone keeps trying to kill her
(This time somebody’s getting hurt)
Here comes the next contestant

Is that! Your hand! On my! Master! Is that your ha-aaaa~and?
I wish you’d do it again
(I’ll watch you leave here in dust)
I wish you’d do it again
(I’ll watch you leave here in dust)
There goes the next contestant

I’lm loving what she commands
My Jackal sits in my hand
Can’t wait til they get what they deserve
(This time somebody’s getting hurt)
There goes the next contestant

Enrico: There! How do I look?

Yumiko: You’re very handsome.

Heinkel: Yeah, not at all like usual.

Enrico (narrating): I’m cosplaying Pope Marcellus II, 6th-shortest reigning Pope in history. He died after only 22 days in office, despite being wrapped in — get this — steaming sheepskins.

It was a unique cool costume idea, so I did what any committed cosplayer would do…

Enrico (past): Father Renaldo, could you make this for me? Thanks!

Enrico (narrating): Catholicon 1990: 12th annual convention of Catholic enthusiasts. It was my first.

Enrico: Heinkel, help me with my hair.

Heinkel: Dude, I’m not doing your hair! You should’ve cosplayed somebody who wasn’t bald.

Enrico: Hey, I have a bald wig! I just need help with it.

Heinkel: You could’ve just sucked it up and gotten a haircut.

Alex: KIDS!

If you keep arguing, I’ll drive back to Ferdinant Lukes and we’ll sort it out there.

Heinkel & Enrico: Yes, Father.

Audience member: Is it true?

Enrico: Of course it’s true. ALL of my stories are true. Now be quiet and let me tell it right.

“What do you mean, you can’t find it?” asked Father Anderson.

Alex (past): We’re on our way out the door!

Enrico: Well, I don’t know where I left it…

Heinkel: Got it!

You already had it by the door. Now, come ON! We’ll be late!
