Home with a Smile

We had a lot of fun this Comic Con, and the high light of it all for me was to see the “Boxtroll” panel in Hall H.  I give you the advance report that it’s wonderful.  We were charmed.  The rest of the Con passed me by in a tired blur.

Sunday was a bit better…we brought Margot and Zoe to their first Comic Con.  Margot seemed to love it all, but Zoe reacted uncomfortably.  We fled home by twoish, took an hours nap, and we were able to face the evening crush at our meeting with aplomb.  At least I didn’t fall asleep or snore. 

Life is back to normal today.  The house is a total mess….we dropped things where we stood.  I have a thousand photographs to look at, but the house cleanup comes first.

A Glimpse of Friday's Comic Con


  • Himself:  Commented that this was the first year we attended more panels than we spent time on the floor.  Loved the Firefly video panel.  Costume day today.

  • Herself:  This is also the first year that we have attended different panels on different subjects.  Tho we are both involved in Steampunk, I am not interested in the latest video games.  Costuming for the Hall and for the Masquerade interested me.  Cosplay they called it.  Got to see Preston for a short visit.  Today Steampunk meetup at noon.

  • Reading:  Finished “Memory” this morning and will take “Komar with me to keep me amused in the long line for Hall H.  Preview of Nephews latest movie there at 2.

  • Balance:  Dinner out at Donovan’s.  What a calming treat in the middle of Comic Con Chaos.

    SDSU and Comic Con

    Outside on the streets, 10113.

  • Himself:  Picked up badges in the valley yesterday.  Bought Sunday’s cake makings yesterday.  Fed the neighbor’s kitties breakfast extra early.  Working from 0700 to 1400 then off to the Con.
  • Herself:  Heading to SDSU a little before 9 to meet with the SDSU VA person in the 100 degree heat.  Pick up car at Qualcom Stadium and home to get G for the Con.
  • Reading:  Taking “Memory” to SDSU to read on the trolley there and back but nothing to Comic Con. 
  • Balance:  Totally relaxing once I get home from SDSU.  I’ve been out of balance about this.
