April 1-3 was our annual weekend trip to San Francisco for WonderCon, a three day convention of all things geeky. My husband is a huge comic book reader...he reads about 40 books a month and usually spends about $75-$90 a month on books. Although I am not a comic reader, I do enjoy the convention. It is so much more than comic books. There is art, promos for new movies and tv shows, costumes, cartoons, games, and a variety of retailers.
Here is my top ten list of the things I did last weekend in San Francisco:
10. I met Cindy Morgan, who played Lacey Underall in Caddyshack. She was super nice!
9. I saw a promo for Cowboy's and Aliens, a new movie direct by Jon Faverau. Mr. Faverau was there to talk about the movie. He was really funny!
8. I will buy almost anything with a dog on it. I found three prints with cute dogs this year. Now I just need to figure out where to display them.
7. A company called "Kaboom" is a kids comic book company. They publish comics based on pixar characters, like Car, Toy Story and Monsters Inc. and they have a huge line of Muppet comics. I was so excited to find they were having a 2 for 1 sale. I purchased four trades: Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Muppet Snow White, and Muppet Sherlock Holmes.
6. Speaking of Kaboom, Travis Hill, Kaboom artist was there to draw personalized sketches for a small fee. He drew me a sketch of Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head from Toy Story.
5. I love the costumes at this convention. It is fun to see the creative costumes people come dressed up in. This year I dressed up as Princess Leia. The funnest part about dressing up is walking to the convention from the hotel. It is funny to watch the reaction of people. Classic!
4. I bought a limited edition Peanuts comic book. Only 100 available and only being sold at the convention. I received #97.
3. Ethan has connected with a lot of other comic geeks in the area. They are a great group of people and a lot of fun to hang out with us. And the best part about hanging out this year...I was not the only female!
2. I loved drinking a huge latte in my Princess Leia costume.
1. I found a company that was selling plush internal organs including LUNGS! I was so excited! This company called i heart guts sells all kinds of organs including hearts, kidneys, etc. I am keeping my lungs in my treatment area to keep me company. I love them!
