Mother Nature is laughing

According to the weather app on my iPhone the high for Friday in NYC will be 70 degrees. It’s also suppose to rain.


Does anyone else feel like this is a late April Fools joke from Mother Nature and instead of warm temperatures and rain we will wake up with freezing temps and snow on the ground? I’m sure if we listen closely we can hear Mother Nature giggling with delight.

Things men can do better

I find it annoying when men can do things better than I can.

Like a hair bun or ponytail. I’ve had long hair for a long time and my buns and ponytails never look as good as theirs. Men can fix their hair so that it comes out looking gorgeous and effortless while I spend hours trying to get the same effect with little to no success.

Even when their hair is down it looks amazing!

Men can even put on makeup better than I can, especially the smoky eye! It is so frustrating. I have been struggling with make-up since I was a preteen and still haven’t gotten the hang of it. Make-up is so annoying that most days I don’t put any on. Luckily, I have great skin – at least I have that going for me.

What it really comes down to? It looks like I need a man to help me be more feminine.

Ta Da!

Also, is there anything that Jared Leto* can’t do?

Absolutely Not


* disclaimer: I’m indifferent about anything Jared Leto; I just thought it was funny that his image kept popping up when I googled images.

Pictures from Day 2 of New York Comic Con 2013

For me, Day 2 of New York Comic Con 2013 was better. I actually got to visit the main floor instead of waiting in autograph lines. I bought a ton of Doctor Who stuff plus t-shirts that proclaim my love for Doctor Who and Big Bang Theory. Saw a red Darth Vader break dancing but only got pictures of his friend.

There were some great costumes that people put a lot of thought and hard work in to. I may even dress up next year but only for one day. Some people wore their costumes everyday and by the last day they did not smell so fresh.

New York Comic Con 2013 – T-shirts Are Cool


New York Comic Con isn’t always about the costumes. Sometimes you can say a lot with just a T-Shirt.


NYCC 2013 was my very first Con. I didn’t know what to expect. I wasn’t sure if wearing a costume was an unwritten rule and I would be looked down upon because I didn’t wear a one.


I decided not to wear a costume. I’ve been to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and know the temperatures can vary depending on where you are and how many people are in the area. Also, I didn’t want to wrestle a costume during bathroom breaks. The stalls are teeny, tiny. I wore jeans and plain shirts.


When I arrived I saw tons of costumes but I also saw people in jeans and shirts just like me. I felt so much better. I also bought a few fun T-shirts to wear to next year’s Comic Con. Here are a few more fun T’s. Let me know which one is your favorite.


I was walking by a really long autograph line and this woman caught my eye because of the book she was reading (Huge Penis), the Doctor Who lunchbox and the red bow tie. No one should underestimate this woman. I bet she has a plethora of hidden talents.


New York Comic Con 2013 – Children of the Comic Con 2


Sunday saw an invasion of more people under the age of 18 at New York Comic Con.  But, it was the kind of invasion that no one really minds; mostly, because they were so darn cute!


You would think with all the scary and spooky cosplayers walking the halls of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center that many kids would be screaming and crying, but no, they were just as excited to see the villians as much as the heroes from their favorite show or comic book. Even some dressed up as villains! Who doesn’t love a great Serpentor! By the way, his father hand-made this costume.



Some even had fun with the decorations. This kid is about to deliver a swift kick to Spiderman. Don’t worry Spiderman didn’t suffer too much because this little boy’s mom came over and saved the balloon from more kicks.


Not every kid came in costume but some had a unique way of standing out, like this 17-year-old who decided to give back to the NYCC community.

Kids dressed up as Doctor Who and his TARDIS! Gotta love that!


Here are some kids who looked so cute I have to post their picture again.

Predator was scary!

I just want to give a shout out to all the kids who came in their Comic Con best and let the adults take picture after picture as we oohed and awwed over their adorable and scary costumes. Comic Con had some great sessions for kids to participate in like learning how to play Quidditch; kids costume parade and drawing workshops.
