SciFi Expo, With Nerdy Goodness

Finally! Issues resolved. So, without further ado, I share with you the Full Frontal Nerdity of my weekend. Nick and I went to hang out with our nerd friends, including my sister and her boyfriend. 

   

Stars of the show included the Dark Lord, complete with breathing apparatus, David Prowse, and Kenny Baker. Kenny is the man I wanted to see. My favorite little droid in the whole wide universe, R2-D2. And he admonished me. And rightly so. In my excitement, I accidently touched one of the photos for signature before I decided that was the one I wanted. “Don’t touch the photos! You’ll put fingerprints on them.” So I decided the one that had my fingerprint was the one I needed to take. A thousand pardons!

We walked around the expo, ogling toys Nick had from childhood, but that his mother, in a fit of religion (Pat Robertson said they were SATANIC!) made him sell to his cousin for $50. This included the orginal GI Joes with beards, Mego Superheroes, and just about every Star Wars toy that had come out until 1980, including the X-wing figher, the Millenium Falcon, and the Death Star. There were a lot of comic book vendors, boot-leg TV movie dealers and fake autograph hawkers. Oh and NERDS. There were lots and lots of nerds. 🙂 It rocked.

Now, to round out my basic set of signatures, I need Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford. Mark Hamill doesn’t do many appearances, and Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford likely wouldn’t be caught dead at a Con, so when I get really hungry for those, I’ll have to turn stalker on them. Maybe if I mailed them photos…
