My random assortment of awesome pictures and words.
I was at a gas station and had a profound thought dawn on me. I looked at the guy at one of the other pumps and thought to myself, where could this guy be from. Honestly. Have you thought about that? You’re just sitting there filling up your tank and the dude next to you could be on some cross country journey to find his kidnapped wife. What if he thought you were looking pretty shifty. He could come at you and attack. Or maybe he is on a soul quest. What if he is having a mid-life crisis and needed some fresh air and a change of scenery? If I just leaned over and said something completely random like “quite the artist isn’t he?” as I gesture to the sky, he could see me as some sort of guru or wiseman. What if he writes a memoir of his journey and I am the epiphany he was looking for? I could be that in somebody’s eyes. That is my new goal.
A few things I learned today at DragonCon:
1. “If you’re going to be stupid, you have to be tough.”- wise words from a mom behind me to her crying son.
2. Most people who spend a lot of time in fandoms are not as attractive as their fictional counterparts.
3. Similarly, wearing nothing but shells over your breasts really only looks good if you are, in fact, a mermaid.
4. The only thing geekier than going to DragonCon is dressing up to go to DragonCon. Fun, too
