Tonight’s post is going to be a little light on content. I spent most of my day hanging out with my friends Rob and Andy on the convention floor. We stopped in at the LEGO booth, checked out a lot of t-shirt, card and toy stalls, but mostly we just checked out what everyone was doing. As I said in an earlier post, I’ve been coming to Comic-Con for about 20 years now, and really…it’s not about what panels you go to or what merchandise you buy or what studios you get swag from. Comic-Con, to me anyway, is about spending a weekend with people like you. In fact, that’s why I’m trying to make geektitude a thing. It’s about sharing what you love with others. And I think the more we think of conventions as something to share instead of just something to do…the more we will ultimately get out of it.
Tomorrow will be a completely different experience for me. Tomorrow I will be attending the convention with my 12 year old nephew. So, this will be one of the first times I get to experience the Con through the eyes of a kid who’s never been to a convention before. I have a feeling I will have lots to talk about in tomorrow’s post.
