This was Poe's last adventure: Baltimore Comic-Con! I entered the cosplay contest so I really had very very little time to take any pictures myself (the ONLY photo from the convention center I have is of me and the first-place winner of my category... I got second  Grin ) but afterward I got Poe with my gauntlet, showing off the work my friend Beth and I did:



That's knitted, with the scales slipped on as you go, and I made the lights... I'm Iron Man, but... elegant.  Cheesy

Now I have to make sure I have everything Poe picked up on his trip and get the scrapbook put together and get it all shipped out tomorrow!

Smeddley - Anana has seen many horrific examples of humans devouring his kind throughout his travels... Luckily he's pretty okay with it  Grin

koalascout - I was starting to have the same concern, but then I remembered... we just moved last month! If there's one thing we have plenty of, it's BOXES!

Poe went to play Bingo with me, my aunt, and my grandmother yesterday. It was everyone's first time except me (I used to work there as a fundraising thing for my high school marching band... 10 years ago...) so it was pretty funny. I protected Poe from the smoke smell and the dauber ink, but he had to come out to help us with the instants we won! (The blog post has an explanation of what those are.)

We have a fun week ahead of us (including my birthday!!!) so Poe has a lot of photos coming...

Poe and I have been focusing on crafting my Halloween costume. Here he is modeling the tulle skirt:



So cute! I really have no idea what I'm doing... so far, my friends Beth and Chris have made pretty much all of my cosplay. But I'm learning! And Poe is helping. We have made MANY trips to the fabric store. And we will make several more.

Poor Poe has had to go to so many meetings, trainings, and faculty development sessions with me this week. Our fall semester starts on Monday, so this week has been INSANE! We demonstrated our new iPad classroom to the other librarians (and the boss's boss) this week, which was a pretty big deal. Here's Poe helping me test one of the apps:



And it's on his blog: http://poeinvb.blogspot.com/2015/08/ipoe.html

We went to a party in Arlington yesterday, but with the absurd amount of time it takes to drive there and back in one day, we didn't have time for sightseeing. Instead, we did what we could from I-395 on the way out:


That's the Pentagon and the Washington Monument behind it.

There's another one of the Air Force monument on Poe's blog:

Poe saw some waterfalls too! We just got home from Idaho last night.


That's Shoshone Falls, just outside of Twin Falls, ID. They call it "the Niagara of the West" although most of the horseshoe shape is gone now, because of irrigation diversions upriver.


We stood in some of the original ruts made in the grass by the Oregon Trail, which is pretty cool. (You can find lots of examples of these all across the country... I've seen a few in different places in Oregon before.)


Some deer approached the campsite at the state park after dinner. Being from the middle of Virginia Beach, I don't see deer too often, so that was really cool.

Happy fourth, everybody! Poe will be helping us pack for the move all day, but I do have a photo from work this past week to share:



That's a new installation at our library. The glass "fireplace" was blown by a local artist. I think it looks like a twist (ha) on Chihuly.

Poe and I went to the blood drive at work today. The Red Cross didn't need stuffing donations so Poe didn't give, but I gave blood for the first time, and Poe was very supportive.

We took Poe up to the middle of the state, where we helped some friends build a fence. Poe wasn't allowed to help (power tools, wet concrete... I saw too many LV-unfriendly dangers) but he enjoyed the trip.



That's the Blue Ridge Mountains, as seen from the scenic viewpoint off I-64. We had never stopped there before, so that was fun!

Poe and I went to the NorVa (local music venue in Norfolk) to see my brother-in-law's band play last night!





(Apologies for mysteriously sideways pictures.)
