A few months ago, my boyfriends cousin sold us this box of well taken care of comic books (for $50 bucks!). A few weeks later he offered up yet another box and we bought that one as well. I didn't want to touch them as they are as I previously mentioned, very well taken care of. So tonight, I say "f*** it!" I'm reading them! I've never been able to start my own comic book collection. Mostly because all of my money goes to bills and groceries. Believe me, I have tried, but my guy said it is a huge financial commitment we just can't make. Sadness. I used to get trade paperbacks from the library, but the selection was slim. When I was a little girl, I had an uncle who promised to give me his comic collection. He was a massive Marvel fan, but had a wide variety of reads. I was so excited! Then he re-married and gave his step-sons his collection instead. They ended up selling it and my heart was secretly broken. Still is, but it doesn't matter anymore. I have 2 boxes of fun waiting for me and I just can't wait! Later alligators, I'm gonna get my read on.

My dude won these tickets and boy what a prize. We had the best time and I got to take pics with some awesome costumed people! I so badly wanted to take a picture with this little boy dressed as Han Solo but I was too chicken to ask him. I however DID get a pic with Shaak Ti and "Nintendo" Vader, which absolutely made my day. Shaak Ti is my all time favorite Jedi Master. Or Mistress. It was a fantastic experience and lovely to see so many families and Star Wars geeks in Fresno. I hope this brings great things to the city, like conventions and what not.

It was small and there weren't many people, but it was so very fun. We got to ride the ferris wheel and the tilt-a-whirl. It felt like ours was the spinniest. I really wanted to get on the fire ball and zipper, but my guy wasn't having it. We shared a churro and sat on a bench for awhile. Soaking it all in. The weather was perfect and I gave my extra tickets to a very happy little kid. Fun times were indeed had.
