C2E2 Day 2 : A Thousand Miles (or how far I walked!)

Saturday in the park…no wait. I seem to have the inner dj turned on and I was never in a park this weekend. Let’s just start over, shall we? Saturday was what I tend to call omg busy. I was up by 9 and considering Friday was tiring and I didn’t get to bed til 2am, I was concerned with that. I did the usual post-waking things..showered, dressed, ate a banana and then I was off to the convention center!

Yet again, I caught the shuttle to the airport and then it was off to the train! This time, I wasn’t alone but got to spend the entire ride with Phil (dad), Connor (son – about 13) and this adorable little girl whose name escapes me, but she had a stuffed wolf named Sammy. Phil was in town from Indianapolis and the kids were up from Kentucky for the weekend...

C2E2 Day 1 : Friday the 13th…

Woo! Guess where I just got back from? Well, if you read here last week, you would know that I spent the weekend in Chicago…all by myself! Eek!

So, over the next few days, I’m going to give you a general run down of what I did, who I talked to and how me, the girl from Middle of Nowhere, Michigan, handled riding the train and making her way downtown. (Does anyone else immediately hear this song when I say making her way downtown?

So, let’s get started, shall we? My weekend started bright and early on Friday. I had to get up, finish packing everything up and then loading it all into the van...

Detroit Fanfare 2011 : Or..My First Comicon!

If you had asked me even two years ago what I was doing for my birthday, you never would have heard me say I was going to a comic book convention. In fact, had someone suggested it, I most likely would have snorted and said, “and why would I want to do that?” You see, I was in the closet about part of my geek nature. Everyone knew I was into music and if you caught me unsuspecting, I’d even answer some sci-fi question without thinking. Now, fast forward to my birthday 2011. Want to guess where I spent it? Yep, at the Detroit FanFare Comic Book Convention. Ok, technically, it was the day after my birthday but since it fell during my birthday weekend, I’m counting it.

FanFare was held at Cobo Hall in Detroit. I had never actually been there before, but it wasn’t too hard to find...
