At Comic Con, one of my favorite places in the world to people-watch, I spyed:

– Life-size Lego R2-D2, Darth Vader and Chewbacca
– Willy Wonka
– Two Jedis with Jack-in-the-Box heads
– Life-size Ugly Dolls
– My little ponys!
– More pirates than goths
– A girl covered in pantyhose material and not much else
– A ton of boys who looked like my cousin, but wasn’t (Steven, where were you?)
– Some gorgeous and not-so-gorgeous artwork

I heard a little boy say, “I like this convention, mommy,” but I couldn’t find him in the crowd.

    Oh! I love the ComicCon! The hubby & went to the one in Novi, Michigan last year, and we are going again this year to promote our new horror mag–Theatre of Decay! (The hubby is a horror writer, and I, well, I make for a good editor, though you’d never tell it by the way I leave messages….)

    But, yes, it is so much fun to people-watch at a ComicCon!

    i spy with my little eye an overwight Green Lantern with a sock in his drawers.

    (that’s an old comicon sighting but it’s still my favorite.)

  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
