San Diego Comic-Con is this weekend. And I’m not there.
I can’t begin to express how much this depresses me. *sigh* I am a very sad geek mom. Not only am I a huge comic fan, my favorite TV shows (namely Bones, Leverage, Big Bang Theory and Burn Notice) will all be there as well as the ever lovely Cindy Pon who will be leading the Young Adult panel (Hey — any comic companies out there want to sponsor a geeky, work at home mom blogger to comic conventions? *hopeful* I figure I’m far beyond any type of dignity at this point and all out BEGGING may just get me somewhere for next year.)
So taking a page from The Kitchn, here’s a few links in honor of my geek breatheren that I am not currently carousing with. *pout*

Is it wrong of me to really, really want the Star Wars apron?

Because conventions should be about fandom and community, not harassment!

Where you don’t have to explain: “No, I’m not picking up comics for my husband/fiance/brother/cousin. These are mine.”
And it is always great not to feel like you have to say: “Stop leering at me.”

My most favoritest (that’s a word, dammit) comic book author in the world. She’s all that, a bag of chips with cherries on top. Or something. Just trust me on this. She will be at Comic Con for three panels on Thursday and Friday.

An awesome author who penned Silver Phoenix: Beyond the Kingdom of Xia. She’s a lovely lady whose journal I have been following for years. She will be at Comic Con on Sunday, moderating the Young Adults fiction panel.
Disclaimer: None of the links are sponsored. The Silver Phoenix link is through my Amazon Affiliate account. (Seriously, it is a great book! Read it if you have a chance) Considering how much I’m gushing about them, that’s almost sad. Almost. But I truly like/support all of these things so I’m more than happy to gush about them. But hey, comic companies! Sponsor a Mom blogger? C’mon! You know you want to!
