    While i’m #NotAtComicCon, I shall endeavor to create another culinary success again at my job. To this end i shall re-read another cookbook, while trying to entertain a 6yr old and a 4yr old simultaneously. In the meantime i will show my spouse much love and gratitude for allowing me a moment of pure insanity every once in a while, and it will probably involve flowers and chocolate….maybe…..

    While I’m #notatcomiccon, I’ll be visiting a haunted attraction with an old friend, taking care of business as usual, and attempting to fit in a screening of Real Steel with my equally geeky brothers.

    (Also, I have “the device”. No one wants me to use “the device” now, do they?)

  27. David Alvord
    October 13, 2011 at 11:34 am

    I’ll be doing the right thing: raising the next generation of geek correctly! My wife and I will watch our 4 month old daughter Madeline’s, aka nerdbaby, favorite show Doctor Who w/her. We also need to get a few more pieces for her upcoming cosplay as a moogle. Top all this off w/anime boardgame night: boardgames w/our friends while watching Hetalia.

    So, even though we are #NotAtComicCon we’ll definitely be geeking out!

  28. October 13, 2011 at 11:37 am

    While #NotAtComicCon, I shall be helping people who couldn’t pass the Best Buy test get on the internet (if best buy doors were *not* automatic, would they have been capable of getting into the store to buy a computer?)….and finishing up my divorce papers, woo-hoo!

  29. Tranylle Simmons

  37. October 13, 2011 at 11:55 am

    I’ll be taking care of a pregnant wife and 3 year old child while writing a paper on the effects of plasticity in the North Pacific Gyre on fish population. I think I deserve some good reads after writing that paper. Especially since i’m #NotAtComicCon.

Such as the wonders that are Goodwill stores, and exploring the local haunted houses. Mind you I’m always pushed to the front of that fright line with the most scared cry babies behind me, choking me by my own hoodie (you know who you are).

    My weekend will be spent thinking about doing fabulous things while trying to focus on a book and ignore far too much SpongeBob on TV. I’ll change shirts ten times, not because I’m a diva like that, but because my two month old christened them with a few body fluids. I will pat both my four year old AND my husband when they come inside from littering the yard with Nerf discs. If I’m lucky, I’ll get to do my impression of a kick-ass fantasy mom with a (Nerf) pistol in one hand and a baby on the other arm. It’s an awesome book cover… in my head!

    I am not at comiicCon because I have to work and could not find anyone willing to trade shifts. I would love to win the sweepstakes!

    I will be once again setting out to defend this world against al manner of evil while everyone else enjoys being at comiccon. The cons always happen far east & far west of me. I’ll get to one one of these days. But untill I can I’ll defend this world so another con can see another day. Love. #NotAtComicCon

    I will be frozen in Ice traveling through space on my way to a new world. On this planet all us good at it is comiccon all day everyday. I’ll send word once I’ve made contact & let you know the location. I’ve begun the countdown I’ll gave to go (5..4..) now but (.3..) I’ll be (2..1.) (end transmission)

    See if I win. I bet it’s another unlucky day. I’ve got good company though my cute puppy Harvey.

    I should have been at NYCC for 3 days, but while I was #NotAtComicCon I was dealing with an emergency. All appears to be well now. I did spend a bit of time reading!
