Well, I'll Be a Monkey's Uncle!

On Friday, I got one of the best birthday presents I have ever received - news that I am going to be an uncle! My sister and husband have been trying to adopt for a while and on Friday they brought home little 11-month Aaron. Since he was born in New England, I have every confidence he'll be a BoSox fan. Like every good New Englander, I wish the boy health, happiness, and the hope he'll get to see them win another World Series title in his lifetime.

Now I have to face the responsibility of making sure the little legend grows up with an appreciation of comics. And I'll also have to make sure all my expensive collector's items are out of reach whenever he visits!

You Should See the Other Guy!

I haven't dressed up for Halloween in maybe a decade, but since it was encouraged at my day job I decided to give it a go.

My first plan was to dress up as a World Champion and wear my Red Sox cap and jersey, but I have been sporting that outfit a lot during the post season. So I decided to pay tribute to Patrice Bergeron. Hope to see you back on the ice soon #37!!!

Not an elaborate costume to be sure, but I am in fact wearing some make-up! "Hey honey, do you mind if I use some of your eye shadow?" is a phrase I never thought I'd say. I was not trying for authenticity, but I did a good enough job to fool the owner of my local comic shop, who thought I'd been a bad accident!

Thanks to Mistress Koloth for taking the pic!
