On the road: Houston

I was in Houston over the weekend for the annual crawfish boil held at the towering glass and steel monument to tee-vee that is Tubular world headquarters. But first, there was nerd business to attend to ...

No, not the high caliber gun show.


I was hanging out with BabySteps Nicki, spreading the 29-95 gospel.

We were right next to the 501st booth - SQUEE!!  We could not have had a better position.  Well, maybe if we were over by the "celebrity" area.   Fair play to Nicholas Brendon for making the show, given the recent unpleasantness.  Dude was looking good.  Hot.  Season 3 Xander hot.  I do not actually have evidence to present in support of his hotness, because I was not willing to pony up the $25 necessary for a photo op. 

Friday was sparsely attended, but there were a few people who costumed up for the event.  Here we have a Ghostbuster, a Jedi, Boba Fett, and Ash from Evil Dead 2.  So we were pretty well covered in the event of a Dark Side, zombie, or ghost outbreak.

From there it was on to the main event.  Bring on the mud bugs!!!


Soon my pretties ... soon ...

We will feast on you until nothing but empty carcasses remain ...

Then after a good solid 8 hours of drinking beer, gorging on crustaceans, and enjoying the odd slice of cake (it was a child's birthday party after all) we decided to go see a Weezer cover band playing at The Continental.

The bar was pretty cool and the band surprisingly good.

Joe Mathlete (in red) of Marmaduke Explained, rocking the mic.

And then on Sunday, we rested ...
