So, July. Ummm, you know May and June were busy, but they were like calm-busy, like the kind of day when there's perfect weather, and you have lots to do, but it's things like meeting up with a friend, and going to the farmer's market and petting your cat, and getting your hair done, so it's busy, but still calm.
Yeah, July was not like that. In lieu of any more gibberish, here are some pictures from this last crazy-town month.
The county fair! Cute animals! Fried food! The hypnotist! What more could you want?
The ultimate of ultimate crazy towns: San Diego Comic-Con!
Important: there was a Hello Kitty Cafe food truck there.
Sideshow's new Supergirl figure included Streaky the cat!
And of course a million awesome panels, like this one hosted by Shannon Watters!
Exploring the new murals at Chicano Park while we stayed with my brother in Barrio Logan.
Lots of amazing stuff here. Haven't been to Barrio Logan in years!
Getting caught up on comics - old and new! I also finally read Lucy Knisley's AN AGE OF LICENSE. I picked it up at Comic-Con. And now it's my goal to own every single one of her books. [Actually, I read a lot of books in July (I think 8?)...I'm trying desperately to get caught up on all the amazing stuff that's come out in the last 12 months that I'm just getting to now since I was abroad and it was hard to get my paws on it...like Jandy Nelson's I'LL GIVE YOU THE SUN.]
(yes. go. read. this. now.)
And of course we continue to re-connect with family and friends...sometimes we even get spoiled and can do that over delicious Korean BBQ.
And then, there's the writing, which is the thing that's taken up the bulk of my time, but I don't have a picture for that. I suppose I could take a picture of my coffee mug to represent all the cups of morning coffee and afternoon tea I've consumed in the course of July, but, alas, I must get back to writing.
I made it through crazy-town July and now I say: BRING IT ON, AUGUST!
