So, we had a Cat 1 Hurricane go through our neck of the woods today. Well, by the time it got to us, it was a Tropical Storm, but still lots of rain and wind, so I”m told.

I wouldn’t know because I’m at Dragoncon this weekend. Somewhere between this weekend and the last time I was at Dragoncon (2009) I got very old. I can’t wander the hotels like I used to. I spent most of the time standing at the side, people watching.

Spawn was QUITE the hit. He went as Bob Ross. Complete with fuzzy hair and beard and painted palette.

On the Marta on our way back to our hotel, a ‘zombie’ with completely whited-out eyes freaked one of the Atlanta Citizens who had started her long weekend early.

What you is? Don’t LOOK at me, what you is? Can I have yor picture, but don’t touch, me, k? Oh man, what you is?

I’m in a world of hurt. Back is killing me. And legs.

Either way, I know Zee Reads is over due and Sunday is beefcake, but it’s all going to have to wait until MOnday evening when I get home. I’m pooped. Really pooped. I looked at some famous people. Craig Parker. (Who still smells delish) The voice of Squidward. I saw Ryan Gage… didn’t talk, but saw him.

A panhandler scared the tar out of me. I was up on Peachtree, trying to get my bearings with this…. gad he smelled horrible, I’ve NEVER smelled a human that smelled this bad. He wanted money and I didn’t have it. I would have given him 10 if I had it, but I didn’t. He followed me three blocks. I finally lost him in a crowd. I feel horrible. I help people in need when I can. But he scared me. Really.

So now I’m in jammies with my feet up. My toes look like sausages.
