In all my shoutouts and thank you's, I failed to mention perhaps the biggest thank you of all, to the two people seen above who have the distinct honor of being the people who accidently created me one steamy night. While they're not exactly diehard horror fans, my parents love going to horror conventions as much as I do - it's the truth. Not many people can list going to a place called Monster Mania as one of their family bonding activities, so i'm very thankful for this. They always go out of their way to ensure that we all have the best time possible at these things - right down to my mom packing every single item one could ever possibly need over the course of a weekend, be it butt wipes or dixie cup shot glasses - and for this I am also thankful and grateful. So thanks, parents.
If you ever see these two at a horror convention, don't hesitate to buy 'em a drink!
