i'm still excited looking at that sign!
i’m still excited looking at that sign!

For those of us unable to go to SDCC, Wizard World Philly has been our red-headed step child alternative (my apologies to all my red headed step child listeners.  I love you dearly.  I only speak figuratively, not literally.) to that expensive round of 7 seconds in heaven.

A Trip to the Lego Store

For Jethro’s  12th birthday, I decided to surprise him by taking him to our local Lego store.  Now when I say “local”, I’m more saying the “closest” Lego store to us.  Which, is to say, like 117 towns over in a mythical place called “King Of Prussia”.  I shit you not.  The place even sounds impressive, doesn’t it?  King of Prussia.

and if you’re in the Plaza and want to get to the Court? Gotta get into your car!

Tales from the Vacation: Epilogue or The Mighty Thor!

One of the things I love about Orlando International Airport are all the shops.  Surprised, right!?!?  I know that most of the bigger airports have shops in them.  Yadayadayada.  The ones in Orlando International, though, are a nice representation of what makes Orlando, Orlando (betcha can could’ve snuck the word “Orlando in that sentence one more time).  They’ve got a Disney Store, a Seaworld store, Ron Jon’s Surf shop and a Universal Studios store.  Walking through these establishments, while you’re waiting for your flight is like a small, farewell kiss from Orlando.  Ahhh…parting is such sweet sorrow.

C’mon now!  You didn’t actually think that Homeward Bound was the last post in this series did you?!?!  Nope.  Had to milk this sucker for all it’s worth.  But, believe you me, this one’s worth it.  Especially if you want to be part of the Fadderly experience.  Cause if you click on this link, and read the rest of the article, you’ll see there’s a chance for you to win the mighty Thor!  Don’t delay!  There’s only a few days left…

yes, that is the cat from Law and Order’s Criminal Intent playing Thor

Tales from the Vacation: I’m on a Boat!

“Take a picture, Trick.  I’m on a boat, bitch.
We drinking Santana champ cause it’s so crisp.
I got my swim trunks and my flippie floppies
I’m flippin burgers, you at Kinko’s
Straight flippin copies..”

“They” say that you learn something every day.  Now, I don’t know if that’s true or not (I don’t even know who “they” are, to be honest with you), but I definitely learned a thing or two about being on a 3 day weekend cruise.  Like, in certain “circles” a cruise like the one I was on can sometimes be known as a “booze” cruise?!?!
