Day 3 was the best of the three days we spent at Phoenix Comicon. This was the only day we went in costume as Captain Malcolm Reynolds and Kaylee Frye of Firefly, so it took us a tad longer to get ready. Sadly my husband wasn’t able to carry his prop gun, but at least I was able to take my parasol, which I’d previously thought would be disallowed, as they originally said no props of any kind. We headed to the convention center around 11 am again, and this time it only took about fifteen minutes to get inside. It appeared that lessons were learned from Friday, and they’d gotten all the kinks worked out of the security situation to make the lines flow much faster.

Since Nathan Fillion was my pick for Hump Day Hunk this week, this seemed an entirely appropriate choice for my Friday Funny. The picture and quote are from one of my favorite Firefly episodes "Our Mrs. Reynolds." Hope it give you a laugh.

Day 2 of the Romance Novel Convention was a bit busier for me. Hubs went down early to get the schedule to find out when he was teaching his classes. He ended up teaching his class What You Need to Know to Talk to a Web Designer that morning. It was small, but he really enjoyed teaching it and felt like those attending got a lot out of it. While he was busy with that, I attended Victoria Danann's class on Indie Writing As a Business. Much like with Angela Knight's class the day before, Victoria said this was a 20-30 hour course that she'd pared down to only one hour, but it was an hour jam-packed with great information on marketing and promoting books.

Another wonderful storytelling medium and one of my other big hobbies is television. Once I find shows and characters I like, I just can't get enough of them. I probably watch way too many TV shows, which is why, much like with movies, I'm rarely up to date on any of them. With the popularity and availability of TV on DVD and Netflix, I also enjoy rewatching old favorites and discovering new-to-me shows as well. My apologies in advance for potentially discussing a particular show or episode my readers may have watched a long time ago, but if I tried to stay up to date on all the shows I love, I'd never have time for writing. Not to mention, perhaps I can stir up some fond memories for you or help you discover a show you've never seen before (in the event that might be the case, I'll try not to be too spoilerish).
