Mimi is disturbingly like C-ko.

Speaking of which, I really wish A-ko had slapped her around a bit.

And this is why it's a good idea to pack a cooler when you go to a con. Or charm your way into some pathetic fanboy's room and raid his honor bar.

What is an honor bar? "Raiding his honor bar" sounds vaguely sketchy.

An "Honor Bar" is a small in-room refrigerator similar to a dorm fridge filled with small bottles of liquor, soft drinks, and fruit juices usually found in nicer hotels to give them more of a 'five-star' feel.
A lot of people find out the hard way that, though convienient, they are quite expensive with a canned coke going for around $2.00+ and the small airline bottles of booze somewhere in the neighborhood of $5.00+
The honor bar is inventoried by the hotel staff when the room is cleaned up and and anything consumed is added to the cost of the room.
So, that even a moderate amount of drinking can add up to quite a tab and this has surprised many a convention goer, who thought it was a complementary bar, at checkout.
Thanks for giving me the heads up Macabee, I won't invite you to any of my room partys...

Addendum...

I always thought those were "mini-bars"...

We used them to store our drinks in Vietnam.

Perhaps they changed the name so people wouldn't confuse them with "Fun-sized" candy found at Hallowe'en...
Grrr..."Fun-sized" my sweet patootie!

Perhaps we've been mislead as to what they are "fun" for. I think the "fun-sized" Snickers probably make great slingshot ammo.

Candy! Huh! Good God, y'all! What is it good for?

I've found that a five-pound bag of Tootsie-rolls is an excellent debating tool.

If you can get enough velocity on the candy, anyway.

'honour bar' eh? Same place I found my Paddington bear...as for fun sozed, ANYTHING can be good ammo. Though I particularly like the movie gummie bears Wet they stick to the screen, and in any form, they shut the peole up around you.
