I'm never good at titles.

Well as you may have guessed by now, I've been busy. But instead of alerting the internet world that I have seven Easter related Plinis still available in my shop, I thought I'd take the time to reflect on other happenings in my life.

For starters, Comic Con was this last weekend! I went on Saturday with Lou and our friends Yesenia and Neil. It was an adventure to say the least. We took the train in to NY where it was taking place and got some great "swag" and photos. I think perhaps the best part was the kitty ears I made for Yesenia and I to wear. Besides at the convention, we wore them to the train, on the train, and from the train. People's faces were priceless. I concluded that I should wear cat ears all the time. I haven't really lived up to that statement yet. Perhaps on Monday.

Lou took pictures of Yesenia playing the sometime to be released GTA game for Nintendo DS, but he wasn't allowed to take photos of the actual game. Also, one of the guys in charge of the station had a heart attack when he saw Yesenia and I playing. "Whoa...whoa!!! Are you guys 18?!?". I can't understand why he thought we looked like we were 12. Couldn't be the kitty ears, could it? Yesenia's response was even more priceless... "Yeah I'm 26! That's my husband over there."

Some of my "swag". I also bought a Munny doll which I'm VERY excited about! For those not in the's a vinyl doll that you can paint and decorate yourself. It's all the rage...teehee.

And finally...being at a comic book convention, one would think that there'd be comic book purchasing of some sort involved. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time...and/or I didn't speak up when we were trudging through the huge crowds past the aisles upon aisles of comic book artists. Either way, it inspired me to complete my collection of the comic book I've been reading/collecting for a while now - Kabuki: The Alchemy. I bought the final 3 issues of the series online and they came today (right in time for the weekend) to my excitement!
It's a really beautifully illustrated comic by David Mack (also the Daredevil artist).

Wow, you're a blogging maniac right now, aren't you?

That's no Archie or Richie Rich comic book! They've come a long way! Do you ever do any of your own comics? You ARE an artist. Is there a difference between comics and cartoons?

You guys live a whole other world. It's neat what you're into. And those cat
