Comics: Yesterday I went to my little warehouse in preperation of Wizard World Texas. When I got there one of my comic book boxes was turned upside down. I haven't been there in probably two months or so, and I have no idea how long it has been this way. None of the comics looked damaged, so that was fine. Most of them were just kind of hanging there since the box got caught on another box below it. As I was putting them back in the box I found handful of comics that were unbagged. To my delight they were some comics I thought were long gone. They included the single issues I was missing from 100 Bulletts and James Robinson's Starman. Those issues you know you have, but you can't find anywhere so you think you must be going crazy.
Speaking of Wizard World, I am getting really stoked for it now. It starts tomorrow, and it is one of the best weekends in the year for me. A chance to completely geek out. Plus, I will be volunteering at the Hero Intitative booth again, which I have every year since Wizard World Texas began. One of the few charitable acts I do. As one of my friends said, "Travis? Charity? Hah!"
Salad: Last month for the first time in seriously 7-8 years I had ranch dressing on salad. Man, I forgot how good ranch dressing is. It was great. Very comforting, plus it was nice to get a break from all of the vinegariettes and asian dressing I have been eating.
Family: Coming up on November 22nd I will be attending my great-aunt and uncle's 60th wedding anniversary. This should make-up for skipping family reuniuon this year, as just about the same people should be here for the anniversary celebration. I was at the 50th anniversary as well, and it doesn't seem like 10 years has passed since then. My brother is flying in for the anniversary and staying through Thanksgiving, so that should be a fun week.
