On Saturday, I had two plans: If it was sunny, I would go to Bruce Pitt dog park with a girl I met online (strictly platonic). If it was rainy, I would go to the Comic Book Shoppe’s “Free Comic Book Day”. It was grey and miserable, so I chose the latter. Upon approaching the Shoppe, I spotted these guys in Star Wars getup:
as well as this gent:
It was crazy packed in there and the nerds were like locusts, swarming in on the boxes containing the free swag. By the time we got there, there wasn’t much left, but I picked up a GI Joe and some not widely known comic book. (Hey, they were free! I’ll take anything that’s free!) While strolling around, I spotted these figurines. Honestly, I don’t get it:
But whatever does it for you, I guess and they are well crafted. (I like the Batgirl one where she’s doing the ‘Bat dance’ on the bottom left side. LOL. )
We also spotted more costumes. Wonder Woman:
Super Girl and Lt. Uhura:
Hubby also overheard a slightly amusing conversation, between a guy dressed up like Aquaman and some customer:
Aquaman: “Ahh! It’s starting to rain, I’m going inside!”
Customer: “Haha! AQUAman is scared of the rain!” *nerdy chortle*
Poor guy. But I guess if you’re going to dress up, you should try and at least act the part.
After some bubble tea, I spotted these weird posters all over the place:
Just don’t do it too often buddy or you might go blind! LOL
Sunday was o.k. We went to Michaels to spend the gift certificates Hubby bought me for Christmas. I kinda went a little nuts in there, throwing brushes, sketch pads, paint in the basket! Normally, I carefully scan prices at stores, because…well we’re kinda broke. But put me in an arts store and I lose my head! When we got to the cash, I chocked when the sales clerk rang up things like $30 brushes! $30!! Are they made of spun gold? So we had to do some swapping, because I bought quite a few brushes and at 30 bucks each, well that’s ridiculous! Anyways, the gift certificates didn’t stretch as far as I hoped, but at least they reduced the total somewhat.
If you’re wondering where I am, I’ll be painting and drawing. After spending that much cash, I have to put those materials to good use! 🙂
