Winter storm Juno hit the New York area this week — or, rather, was SUPPOSED to hit this week, as it turned out to not be so terrible in my neck of the woods. We got around a foot and half of snow and my car ended up with a mysteriously busted rear window. Day off of work in exchange for dealing with glass replacement = unfair trade-off.
In other local news, my comic shop, Collectors Kingdom, has relocated to a temporary spot near their old, now-burnt out, home. Their IndieGoGo campaign is still ongoing and if you can spare something — anything — they would love and could use the help. It’s a fantastic shop run by a great guy and it’s a place that is known throughout most of the area as the place for comics, pop culture stuff, and general “geekery”.
AND, daily brown bag art for The Boy is STILL ongoing…
God, I’ve never looked forward to the end of a school year more…
With Halloween approaching, the annual “Be Undecided About Our Costumes Until My Head Explodes” festivities have begun! The Boy has ran through a thousand ideas — Leonardo from the TMNT, Superman, Julius Junior, a Skylander (note: he has NO idea what a Skylander is, but he says that he saw it on a commercial and it looked “so cool”), a skeleton — I’m thinking he’s going to go as That Kid Who’s Father Is In The Mental Institution From Halloween Costume Indecisiveness.
Don’t ask me such insane, unanswerable questions — there is no reason why not. A free pterodactyl is always a welcome thing!
I’ve been also trying to plan his 5th birthday party in the meantime — The Boy’s birthday is the day after Halloween. He wants a dinosaur-themed party, so I’ve been hunting down small dinos for decorations. Not sure what I’m going to do with them yet, but I’m hoping for a great idea… I got this awesome surprise in a package of toys that I ordered — I’m taking it as a sign.
And, lastly before we get into things, I got another addition to my “doctor” commissioned art collection — this AMAZING piece by James Stayte of Doctor and Professor Jones! See? Sons are MADE to drive their fathers crazy!!!
