Ponyversary -- a portmanteau of "pony" and "anniversary."
It was during the first weekend of February, 2011, that I more or less became a "brony," i.e., a fan of the animated TV series, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. I was on vacation in Florida and when I wasn't hanging out with friends at various theme parks, I spent my "downtime" surfing the web. That's when I discovered websites like Equestria Daily and the now-defunct Ponibooru, and drawings like this one. I had already seen a few episodes of the show, including the two-part pilot, and I enjoyed what I saw. But after that one weekend in Florida the little light when on and I said to myself, "Oh, NOW I get it!" The rest, as they say, is history.
(Coincidentally enough, I was once again in Florida last weekend, hanging out with friends and visiting theme parks. This time I stayed at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, in their "Lion King" themed suite. Check out these photos of the place: www.google.com/search?q=disney… )
I plan to make this an extra-special FIFTH Ponyversary! Help me celebrate by watching ponies and then watching me draw ponies (and maybe a few other cartoon animals), tonight on RooCam LIVE! I hope to see you then!
