I don't play Pokemon (and to be honest, I don't really know much about it) but I DID get a kick out of the fact someone at my local Target painted just *one* of the red concrete "balls" (that prevent people from driving up on the sidewalk) half white like a Pokeball!  Grin

So...hopefully now that gets us caught up! And we can go back to regularly scheduled updates and not technical difficulties! Cheesy

Ok, here are some long overdue Tampa Bay Comic Con pics!! Let's hope this works! Grin

First off, it takes place in Downtown Tampa. It was a rainy weekend but the parking garage gave us some nice views including the arena where the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning play:

The convention center is pretty big and the con takes over the whole building:

There was a professional cosplay group with a look-alike Rick and Abraham from The Walking Dead and man...they really looked good!

Late in the day a Jedi/Sith battle broke out!

...But thankfully no ghosts were harmed:

Hatty tried on a Game of Thrones helmet but it wasn't her size:

And it turns out, these WERE the droids they were looking for! Grin

So yeah, a TON of fun was had getting our geek on!

GRR!! Google photos did some kind of change and now how I used to be able to link to them (through picasa) won't work anymore and the links I try to get direct from google photos are MASSIVE and don't end in a file type (i.e. they're not .jpg) so I don't know if they will work!! The whole point of how I've done it is that my photos from my phone auto sync to my google account and then I added them to a LV folder and linked pics from there. Now I don't know what to do because I don't want to have to download all of the pics individually (making duplicates on my hard drive and taking up valuable space I don't have) to then upload them here. Angry Angry Angry

Here's a test of a pic. Let me know please if this works? Otherwise I have to COMPLETELY change how I share photos and right now I have no idea how to even begin!!!

While last week was mostly stressful and not fun (waiting at the hospital for 10+ hours for my mom's hip replacement surgery - which thankfully went well!), we did go to Tampa Bay Comic Con this weekend since my mom's surgery was originally scheduled for June and we had pre-purchased the tickets so we HAD to use them. Cheesy I haven't had time to sort through pics yet so those will be coming soon.

I've just been SO hectic busy and I've got a couple orders to make and another swap to finish but pics are coming soon!!

Here's one teaser to tide you over:

I designed my card fronts based on trading card games like Magic: The Gathering, deciding on a fire theme to go with my username. The back I did a similar color scheme, added a pic of my fluffy cat, Ginger, and a bunch of random factoids.



I had them printed 9 per page on a cardstock from Office Depot and then cut them out individually and did my darndest to line them up and glue them together neatly. (To varying degrees of success!)



After they were printed, I realized the font was a little small but...at that point, it was just going to have to be good enough! LOL Lesson learned for next time I guess. Grin

I received from Beautifulsoul! She selected my all-time favorite movie ever, Back to the Future, as the theme!! Grin



I LOVE IT! All the details are excellent! Enchantment Under the Sea Dance poster, George McFly's novel cover, the letter from Marty warning Doc, save the clock tower flyer (complete with message from Jennifer on the back!), Re-elect Mayor Goldie Wilson - it's just awesome. Great Scott this is Heavy! Grin



Back and goodies


Even the "letter to Doc" is torn, aged and taped back together!


And for those of you who don't know just how much I love Back to the Future, here's me (dressed in my Marty McFly cosplay I made) with Christopher Lloyd, aka Doc Brown himself from Megacon in Orlando this past May:



Needless to say, I'm a fan!

Thank you so much, Beautifulsoul!! I just love it!

On a whim yesterday, we decided to head down...to the beach! Grin So Hatty got a real taste of Florida. I'm going to save some of the pics for the album, but here's a few.
