The time I was considered family

The time I was considered family

When Leigh’s launch party for Wonder Woman was announced, I was definitely interested. The only problem is that anything wristbanded at The Grove is sort of a mess for me. It takes a lot of work to get up there at the opening time. I was able to see Leigh at SDCC and we talked about the event. I told her that I was going to try to come up and she said she would save me a seat. Flash […]

The time it was about SDCC 2017

The time it was about SDCC 2017

I don’t think it’s a secret how much I love SDCC. I spend allllllll year waiting for it and things go in stages: pre-reg, open reg, press reg, and parking. Once all of those are completed, it’s only a few months that seem to take forever before the convention is actually here. Preview night We got downtown around 4pm, met up with Michelle and her husband, and carried on with our yearly preview night tradition: carne asada fries at Lolita’s. […]

The time it was about YallWest {3}

The time it was about YallWest {3}

Michelle and I have gone to YallWest since it started, so it’s sort of a given that we’ll go.  This year, instead of being an evening event and two full days, it was only Friday night and Saturday.  We were a bit wary, but had tickets for Friday and our books flapped and ready to go. On Friday, Keiko, Michelle, and I headed up towards LA around 10am.  We ended up making several stops: Target, Starbucks, Downtown Disney…you know, normal […]

The time it was a day trip to Arizona

The time it was a day trip to Arizona

When the Fierce Reads tour was announced, it wasn’t coming to California. It was coming to Arizona and I debated going. I love Leigh like crazy, but she’s in LA, so I knew I would see her eventually. My main draw was Emma Mills. The week before the event Keiko said she would go with me…and that solidified going. We left Cali at 7am and made it to the state line just after 9am. We stopped at a Starbucks and […]

The time it was SDCC 2016

Going to San Diego Comic-Con is not always a sure thing, but it has been for the last 20 years.  And even though I’m seriously showing my age here, it has been so much fun watching SDCC evolve and change and get bigger.  The first year we went, we walked right up to the door, paid $10, and walked in.  Now everything from badges, to hotels to parking is all done online. For the past 2 years, I’ve been lucky […]

The time we were almost late, but not really

The time we were almost late, but not really

Even though we had just had the opportunity to see all four of the Fierce Reads ladies at YallWest, Michelle and I still decided to go. For me, I was super excited to see Marie and flail all over her for The Winner’s Kiss. Traffic was a nightmare. We left San Diego at 1 and didn’t get to Pasadena until after 4. Past experience with this store has shown that if you’re not in the event area by 4, there’s […]

The time it was by candlelight

The time it was by candlelight

When I saw that Amie and Jay were coming to San Diego for Illuminae, it was a definite thing. Add the fact that Leigh was also going to be at the event and I was prepared to take the day off and camp out in front of the store. Michelle and I met up super early to have snacks and catch up since it had been a while we had seen each other. We got back to Mysterious Galaxy around […]
