With that first fresh breeze of under 90 degree weather, also comes October and what happens in October, my fellow geeks?
New York Comic Con!
This will be the first time I attend this bustling convention and in the Big Apple no less. Hmm, a Texan in the Big Apple….sounds like the makings of a sitcom, but I digress. I read Deadrabbit92’s thrilling account of what it was like to wade through the ass tons of people at this particular convention and I swore to be there.
If you’d like to break out that grade A stalking gear (namely your smart phone equipped with Twitter and veritable amounts of courage to say hi), here’s where myself, Ladyvader99, and Deadrabbit92 can be found:

Any time in between panels, or during the hours of missed/filled to capacity panels, will be spent roaming around the surrounding Block section, the sure to be huge exhibition hall, perusing the wares in the dealer room, and generally fucking around with my cohort.
If you haven’t bought tickets to this illustrious experience, I implore you to do so and meet up with us to have fun times filled with sexual innuendos and plushies.
