If great responsibility comes with great power, what are you supposed to do with a great sense of humor?
This weekend was the 20th Annual Midwest Comic Book Association FallCon! I wasn't sure if I should go, since it was going to cost a bunch in gas just to get there, and I should be studying for my licensing exam on the 24, but Adam Hughes was going to be there, and it only comes around once a year, so I went.
As the title of the blog suggests, I'm not going to say much about the event. I didn't take any pictures, unfortunately, but I got some good books, including the first Dark Tower HC to donate for the 2009 auction, a bunch of Neverwhere, and lots of random stuff not on my want list (which I completely fubared before I left home). AH! signed my Catwoman 51 and Rapture & Richochet (aka flip-side of Savage Dragon #4) for Bazooka Joe. I had Avengers 500-502 in my hand, but I put them down and forgot to pick them back up before I left. Oh well.
As a saving grace for the expense of the weekend, I was able to buy gas for $2.999 on the way home. They're practically giving it away now! :roll: I also spent 5 hours studying for my exam, so that's something.
In other news, I'm not watching news for as long as I can this week. With what I read online and in the paper, listen to on the way to and from work, and watch at home, I think it's all negatively affecting my mindset lately, more than is warranted. Basically, more is happening than I have any real appreciable effect on, so I figure if I take a week off, I can focus on things I actually have influence on. All that other stuff will be there whether I'm paying attention or not. But even getting through a few hours today has been a chore, so we'll see how long I make it.
So much for an off-the-cuff quick blog entry...
