Baltimore Comic-Con, Death, and Sandman

or “How after 12 years I came closer to completing my oldest collection and won the con at the same time”. I started collecting Sandman comics around 1998 or so. This was back in the days when huge swaths of the San Diego Comic-Con floor was nothing but booth after booth of comic books. I …

Terrible Loser

I saw yesterday’s PVP and it was like Scott Kurtz was inside my mind! (It’s incredibly important you view that comic before continuing. Go on ahead and look. I’ll wait.) Did you read it? Good. (If you didn’t, go do so, but we’re not waiting for any stragglers. Keep up with the rest of the …

Naughty Decoy

Our house has a really nice sized deck. It has an excellent view in the winter and a good mix of view and privacy in the spring and summer when the trees have leafed out. It also gets quite a lot of sun. This is both good and bad. Good for container gardening and plants …

Comcast Bought My New Xbox

For whatever reason, Comcast sent me a $150 Visa rebate card. I vaguely recall why having something to do with an account creation deposit and accepting the terms of service for my contract. Needless to say it was a pleasant surprise! Last week, our Xbox up and red ring of deathed. First it was doing …

Wedding Day Recap

Goal #1: At the end of the day, be married to the person you love most in the world. ACHIEVED Things did not all go as planned, which if anyone will recall, was planned. And everyone loved it anyway which was so much more important to me.
