There are so many things to see and do at Comic-Con, plus San Diego is a lovely city. We’re getting a bit of all worlds here.
At the con, we’re getting crazy people in costume, nifty free swag, movie premiers and TV show pilots, panels featuring actors from our favorite shows (i.e. Jensen, Jared, Nathan…yummy…)
Even better, Professor Moriarty is going to be around and he’ll take us out on the town. He’s trotting us out for coffee (tea for me, I’m half-English, you know) and dessert (yummy…) at a place that calls itself extraordinary. Professor Moriarty claims it’s not false advertising. We shall see, won’t we?
The Mad Madam M and I are heading down to San Diego for Comic-Con. It’s going to be omg levels of awesomenisity. Really. San Diego better lock its doors at night or something. Maybe M and I need a police escort to be allowed down there.
On the agenda:
1) Stalk Nathan Fillion.
2) Rampage on yummy restaurants.
3) Stalk Jensen Ackles.
4) Sneak into the backstage-pass-only areas.
5) Stalk Jared Padelecki.
6) Possibly start a squeeing fangirl riot when we spot one or more of these three guys.
The Mad Madam M will be arriving this afternoon. Woooooooooohoooooooooo! I haven’t seen her since Christmas, so I’m ready for my best friend fix.
Even better than that? She’s helping me put some of the finishing touches on my apartment remodel. It might be done some time this century. Who knew?
Even better than that? We’re taking a road trip down to a fun little convention in San Diego this week. If you don’t know which crazy famous con I’m talking about…well, you just might not be nerdy enough for this blog. Otherwise, you can come back tomorrow for more details. Hee!
I don’t think I’ve brought this up at all, but I think it’s time for the Mad Madam M and I to come out of the closet. Yes. It’s true. I think people have suspected us for quite some time, but now I think you really should know. It’s only fair that we be honest.
M and I are in a deeply committed relationship. With other people.
I know! I can hear your collective gasps of horror and the deluge of questions. What does this mean? How can Crys and M be no longer single? What will happen to their heterosexual life partnership? Isn’t this the second sign of the apocalypse? Should I be worried about zombies taking over? Where’s my tinfoil hat??
It’s crazy, really, but M and I thought we should come clean, and drag the mancakes out for a showing. Okay, not a showing. No pictures. We have to protect their innocence. Or…something.
Anyway, without further ado, but with much bartering on appropriate codenames, I give you Geek Squad and Professor Moriarty! Geek Squad managed to snag the Mad Madam M earlier this year with his mad gadget skillz and stuff. Between the two of them, they have at least five computers in their house. Also, I’ve heard their entertainment center could give a Best Buy store a run for its money. I want to play the Wii when I go see them for Thanksgiving.
Then we have a more recent addition with Professor Moriarty. He’s got a love for the Sherlock Holmes novels and he’s a bit of an evil genius, mad scientist type. I totally adore that he picked a villain codename for himself. He keeps me on my toes, that’s for sure. Also, he makes me laugh and he thinks I’m pretty. *happy sigh* Okay, I’ll stop with the tween crush gushing.
So, those are the guys. Welcome to the insane asylum that is my blog.
Also…don’t worry about the heterosexual life partnership. M will be here tomorrow to see me. Even with the Geek Squad at her house, I still get visitation rights. Stay tuned for more details on that…
In the last six months or so, I have successfully matched M and M’s parents with dogs. And they’re totally cute, too! I may not be able to pick a good animal for myself, but I’m apparently an awesome matchmaker for others. I guess those who can, do, and those who can’t, matchmake for others.
So, two months ago I picked out Sorcha for M’s parents. Here’s her before shot hanging out on a park bench with M’s dad.
And here’s the after. Isn’t she cute? She’s a little pound dog, but she cleans up nice.
I’ve mentioned M’s puppy, Riley, before who I prodded M into going to look at about six or so months ago. Here’s her on her first day. Sorta beat up and scrawny, but still cute.
Another early shot of her.
More recent pic with her filling out a bit. She has tortured that poor platypus toy to death, and M’s had to sew on replacement parts. First, Riley ripped its head open, so M gave it a toupe, and yesterday M had to replace the bill.
Riley in her “I Love Archivists” shirt. Guess what M does for a living? You guessed it. Archivist.
The Olympics wrapped up yesterday, and of course, I was sad to see it go. I thought it was a great Games and that we really got to see some great athletes show their stuff. Plus, I liked the opening and closing ceremonies. They’re always so poignant. I like the opening ceremonies because there’s so much excitement and anticipation, all the build up is finally coming to a head. I like the closing ceremonies because everyone is relaxed and what’s happened has happened and they can all just have a good time and celebrate that they were a part of something so much bigger than one athlete or one sport or one country.
Man, I love the Olympics.
P.S. M is also sad to see it go because it’ll be another two years until the Summer Games before she can see me excited about any sport at all, and can make fun of my excitement.
Ah, yeah, baby! My favorite time of the decade. Olympics time. The opening games are today for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. This is the one time I watch more TV than the Mad Madam M, for which she gets obscene amounts of delight and joy. Summer Olympics, Winter Olympics, I don’t care. I’ll sit through hours of badminton and curling, just because it’s the Olympics. I’m glued to the television for two whole weeks, and I constantly check the medal counts online from work.
Check out the widget below…it’ll track the medals. I’m putting a little one in the sidebar of my blog just so it’s easy to look up. Woot!
