2011 Comic-Con Experience!


So, I’m a SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con) virgin. It’s true! As much as I love being a geek and nerd and lover of all things awesome, I had never actually made my way out here for it (In fairness, I used to live in Raleigh, NC). I went to preview night last night with Boyfriend and it was pretty cool, despite my good mood being ruined by rude people on the way in. I GOT TO HUG ICEBAT AND OX! IT WAS AWESOME. And the vendor floor was relatively empty, so it was nice to be able to wander around and see things without…more than the usual amount of people. I ALSO GOT TO GET MY PICTURE TAKEN WITH THE TARDIS!

I should probably take this moment to tell you all the things that I am obsessed with the most, because I will be talking about them ALL THE TIME. I love Doctor Who (Ten, Eleven, TARDIS, The Big Blue Box, “IT’S BIGGER ON THE INSIDE!,” Amy, Rory, Sonic Screwdriver), Torchwood (BARROWMAN!, John Barrowman, Captain Jack), Cthulhu, unicorns, the word MAGIC as an adjective for EVERYTHING, Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer (I want to be their wife, and they say that they need one, so I hope I’m on the list), Batman (Batman, The Joker, Poison Ivy, HARLEY QUINN). There are probably others, I will let you know when I find them.

Real Steal Shenanigans

Anywho, so I brought my knitting (currently making a hat in stockinette stitch with seed stitch polka dots) with me for something to do while I was waiting to get into panels. HAHA JUST KIDDING THERE WERE NO PANELS THAT I WANTED TO SEE TODAY.  So while my boyfriend stood in line to see Deadliest Warriors: Vampires vs Zombies (which I did want to see, but I really wanted to see Oh You Sexy Geek even more! However, the way things turned out, I just went outside to see Hugh Jackman at Real Steel shenanigans), I was busy getting my first couple of rows done. And then I got distracted by people watching (ZOMG COSTUMES) and very little actual knitting occurred. But I am glad I brought it with me none-the-less! Tomorrow will be a day filled with panels, so I imagine it will come in handy then.

See what I did there? A whole post about something completely random and then threw in knitting at the end to make it work? Yeah, I do that 🙂
