31 Days to Dragon*Con: On New Discoveries

 

Last year, after seeing tons of Dr. Who costumes that we didn’t get, Jon and I decided to watch Dr. Who.  The new seasons, of course.  And it was GREAT guys, Dr. Who was super fun, are you my mummy, etc.  Except, for the first few seasons I was hugely distracted by Rose Tyler‘s bad makeup and dye job–so either that was part of her character, or the makeup department was super low-budget at the time.

Seriously y’all, spider mascara.

ANYWAYS.  We’re not here to talk about makeup, we’re here to talk about shows that Dragon*Con has inspired us to watch.  My obvious one is Dr. Who, of course, and I’ve just started Torchwood. Also, Dragon*Con inspired me to play Portal and Portal 2, which is hilarious, because I never really played videogames.  As you all know, I LOVE PORTAL.  (I really love Portal).  I still really haven’t played any videogames besides Portal, y’all.  Portal is great.

What about y’all?  What new fandoms has Dragon*Con made you pursue?  Or not pursue, maybe because of obnoxious fans?  Either way, has Dragon*Con opened your horizons?  Let me know in the comments!

(Yes I totally cried at that part, I’m sure y’all did too.)

Hi guys!  I know I went away, I’ve been working on myself as a person (not really).

I wanted to give you a present on this hot Friday, which is a mere 69 (heh) days from Dragon*Con.  Yes,  it will soon be time for me to talk about Dragon*Con ALL THE TIME EVERY DAY. I bet you are so. excited.  I know I am.

Anyways, here is my present.  It just happened on the internet TODAY, so you can say that you were one of the first to see it:

Enjoy, and happy weekend!
