COMIC CON!! (i.e. Nerd Alert)

This is going to be a long one...
Well it has come and past, the main event of the year...ok, maybe not the main event of the year, but definitely awesome. As you saw in the previous post, I bought a few things (At the end of the post I'll put what I bought down). I got to drive down to San Diego with my sister Nicole and talk to her. TJ and Chris had been going since Wed. night so they hung out till about 12:40 and then peaced out. And of course, my loving wife -not wanting me to be alone (we knew TJ and Chris weren't going to stay)-Amanda came with us as well!! So to best tell the story, I must use pictures:

Kinda Blurry, but it's me!

Statuette of a Tautaun being attacked by a Snow Monster
