Quickblog - FallCon 2008

926 views • Oct 6, '08 • (3) Comments

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...

    • He is one of those guys that actually got me to pay attention to who the artist is. He seems like a nice guy too, but he was kind of busy at the con, so I didn't talk to him much.
