proud nerds

Hi, Honey, I'm home!

We got back from our Comic Con and Beyond adventure this afternoon.  I think all is forgiven with the cat.  It was a great few days with lots of recreating and family time.  And I think I'm starting to get the hang of Texas Hold 'Em.

None of the fish died either, unlike last year... (may they rest in peace).

But really, not much else to blog about just yet.  This is really just an excuse to post a few more pics instead of go to the grocery store.

Umbrella Corps Guys!

more Cosplayers

Oh My, George Takei!
(not my photo, I didn't want to stand in that line)

There were lots of fun artists at Comic Con.  I think many were famous among the purists.  I'd never heard of any of them, but they were a fun bunch.

Anyway, it was a fun few days.  Great way to kick off the summer!
See you soon!

Your friend,

I'm stunned. Do I laugh? Say nice? Laughing is more fun.

Thanks for sharing your OMG vacation. How fun!

When you come to Virginia, maybe you can be part of a Civil War reenactment. :)

Guano said...

Good times! And thanks for reminding me who George Takei is!

Rock Chef said...

George is a legend! He has been on a few reality shows over here in the last few years and everyone fell in love with him.

Pukelele - I will have to remember that one...

Great shots of the show! And a nice one of Mr Sulu. Great OMG vacation. I was thinking, with your artistic skiz, you should do a comic as well.

I think it'd be fun to do a comic. The family is lobbying for me to have a table in Artist Valley next year. Wish there were more hours in a day!

Abby said...

He's really a funny guy! I'm glad he's so popular post Star Trek! The Pukelele guys were really likable.

I was thisclose to meeting him at the hotel gym!

The comic con crowd is fairly mellow, despite the throngs (and weaponry!).

Larz said...

Ah, you found some Assassins!

Abby said...

They looked great too! I expected them to scale the convention center!

LL Cool Joe said...

Ah George is a real gay icon. Looks like you had a great deal of fun!

I would like to dispute your picture of a duck. I think that's actually your son. Have you been drinking or what? It's really not like you to confuse a boy with a duck. Silly goose!

Comic Con (and beyond) sounds like fun! I cracked up at the puke-ulele comic.

Abby said...

Well. There's one for "learn something new every day"!

Abby said...

Migosh, you're right. Second look confirms that's not a duck, it's a goose!
