San Diego Comic Con, Part 4 – Sunday Shenanigans

This has been my craziest Summer ever. I feel like I’m never home and I pretty much haven’t been since the beginning of June. Some of the reasons have been great (weddings, visiting new family members, hiking through Yosemite) and some of them have been sad (Grandma’s funeral) but all of them have been very… Continue reading San Diego Comic Con, Part 4 – Sunday Shenanigans

San Diego Comic Con, Part 2 – Friday Shenanigans

I’ve been struggling to figure out how best to showcase my Comic Con shenanigans because I have over a thousand pictures taken over the course of 3 days.

Our little group chose a… Continue reading My Star Wars Leap Day Night Thing at Disneyland

A friend recently sent me a photo of… Continue reading Best Nerdy Cakes Ever

Long Beach Comic Con wrap-up 2011

On Saturday I went to Long Beach Comic Con, a fairly young comic book convention that is small enough that comic books *GASP!* are still the primary focus. Imagine that. Anyhooters, it was pretty epic for me because I attended as a “professional” aka a member of the press.  My list of press passes has been steadily… Continue reading Long Beach Comic Con wrap-up 2011
