It will be a glorious geek weekend!

The New York Comic Con is almost upon us and that means just one thing. I need my beauty rest. :)

Just so you guys know, things will be quiet on here for a bit until I get myself settled in NY. Mostly likely I'll be mobile blogging soon enough anyway, plus I've got a new laptop I'll be taking advantage of for writing as well. I'll be there all three days but my actual schedule is still up in the air.

Keep up to date with what's going on at NYCC with their official website and blog. I also hear there will be some stuff on their Twitter too. Speaking of Twitter, I just set it up so I can Tweet from my phone. I'll likely be posting random (and hopefully) amusing comments there throughout the weekend. If I were you, I'd also keep a close eye on Comic Book Resources as well as CBR Live! Just sayin'.

If you've seen me at a con before you know I zip around pretty fast in my scooter. Don't be afraid to shout out, "Jill!" or "Nerdy Bird!" if you see me and want to say hello. I promise not to run you over unless you are a creep or generally piss me off. And please, if you're one of my Myspace, Facebook, general online friends don't be offended if you walk up and I don't know who you are. Say who you are. That helps. Most people don't have pictures of themselves online or look completely different in real life so it's hard to keep people straight.

If you're going, have fun and I'll see you all soon!

Wish I could meet you there. Maybe you can come to Chicago for Wizard World in August. I'll take you to the HS where Ferris Bueller filmed.

Are you coming in costume again this year?

The Nerdy Bird said...

Yah! See you there Melissa!

Randy, you can live vicariously through my blog. :)

Chuck, as long as it's finished in time. Which right now isn't looking too good. :(

I'll be there also (in press mode). Funny how I never saw you last year, but ran into you in Philly!

According to the news, it will be a toasty 53 degrees, so show some leg!

The Nerdy Bird said...

Haha! YOU show some leg!

What a coincidence! I'll be there all weekend as well! The stars are all aligned up for me this weekend.:)

Great pics today! Hope you're having a terrific weekend (one assumes that's totally the case from the CBR stuff).

Take an awesome pic with creative folks and bug somebody about the new writer/artist team on Runaways for me! ;)

It's nice to see you get some exposure over at CBR. More people should know about who you are and the insight you bring to the world of geekdom. Here's hoping you gain a slew of new fans. Cully

I loved reading your CBR stuff. Sounds like it was a great time.

Thanks very much Cully, I appreciate that. I hope that's what happens.

And thanks to the rest of you. I'm attempting to catch up on various things now. Busy busy!
