So, initially I'd intended on writing things in advance like I normally do, but this migraine is pretty much killing me and I just can't focus right now. My apologies, but that's the truth.
After Keith's play we'll be heading out to our family reunion for the weekend and then I plan on taking a day off to relax and then, well, it's the 4th of July so YAY! Enjoy your weekend and I'll catch you back here next week.
As someone who grew up listening to Richard Blade's delicious accent and voice on the radio (and Girls Just Want To Have Fun, the movie), it thrills me to no end that I've been able to meet him a few times.
Also, he just happens to be super cool and friendly! Like, above and beyond cool. Always happy, always a big smile on his face. I love him. Let's just pretend I have a neck in this picture. Why was my posture so wonky???
Here's the thing: I LOVE my iPhone. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. However, I also have a tendency to drop it on a regular basis (I'm not proud of this fact, but it's the truth). Because of this, I've taken to always using an Otterbox case which keeps my iPhone protected. The problem? They're durable and strong, but not necessarily cute.
What I really wanted was a case that had pink glitter, but usually those are flimsy and break by just looking at them. So, I had to keep using my boring dependable case because that was the grown up thing to do. But then at Denver Comic Con, I was handed a phone that had a glitter case AND was durable! Say it wasn't so! Luckily the fan sent me the information and I was able to order one for myself. I LOVE it! Now I can stare at the beautiful pink hearts and glitter anytime I want. Score!
I've wanted to meet Amy Jo Johnson FOREVER so I was thrilled she was going to be a guest at Denver Comic Con!
Ever since she was on Felicity a million years ago, I've wanted to meet her. Oh, and she just happened to be the PINK Power Ranger! I don't know why I'm doing such a stupid pose, but just pretend it's cute.
For what seems like ever, I've been hearing about how good Love, Simon is. I've totally wanted to see it, just hadn't found the time. However, now that it's on Redbox, it's a lot easier to see!
I'm already a huge fan of Nick Robinson from watching him on Everything, Everything, so I already knew I was going to enjoy watching pretty much anything else he did. Love, Simon is a sweet coming-of-age movie that deals with a closeted gay teen coming out to his friends and family and being accepted. Of course, I related to his best girl friend WAY too much as I definitely always found myself falling for good friends (who were also gay) growing up, but still. It's a great movie and the supporting cast is fantastic. Check it out if you get a chance!
While I had no idea he'd be a guest (since he was listed in the artist section of the website), I was so excited to see that DMC himself (you know, from that little known group called RUN DMC!!!!) was our table neighbor at the event.
What a nice guy! I loved watching him interact with fans. He took his time and really talked to everyone. It was awesome.
