#Regalcon in Irvine

Got off stage at #RegalCon in Irvine around 11:30 this morning after telling some amusing anecdotes, spinning a few yarns, dusting off a chestnut or two and delighted in the occasional bon mot.

My question is this; what kind of monster removes a building that is shaped like a giant ice cream dispensing owl? Continue reading “Hoot Hoot I Scream Ice Cream”
