Yes, Nerds and Geeks have come a loooooooooooooooong way since then. We are cool, we are everywhere, we like to discuss our nerdiness at every possible avenue. In fact there are so many types of nerds and geekiness, almost everyone is one.
And where is the best place for said nerds or geeks to congregate?
Yes this past weekend I was at Nerd Con.
My sister was a vendor so I was helping her out, as I am such a great sis!
We didn’t sell as much as we hoped, but did pretty good.
And we had a great time seeing the other people dressed up in their costumes and cosplays. I spotted Freakazoid and had my pic with him.
And while I never got past season one of Once Upon a Time, I still find Captain Hook really hot. And seeing someone who looks just like him; really awesome.
I also scored a sweet Tarzan comic book, (which you probably didn’t know but I am a HUGE fan of Tarzan).
And I found a Supernatural book, like the ones in the TV show.
I’m totally going to send it to her as a joke.
But what really made my day was seeing the Southland Ghostbusters.
They were an amazing group of guys and I had a lot of fun talking to them. They tried to get me to join their chapter, but too bad that I don’t live there. However, I will be checking out the chapter close by to where I live.
And let me say, while I do not want to watch the new, Ghostbusters, (as I love the old one and didn’t think it needed to be remade, especially as action more than comedy), there is one thing I will say for it, it is nice that it is introducing a new generation to Ghostbusters. And as the only female ghostbuster, I had a lot of kids think I was the greatest or want their picture taken with me.
It was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to go back! What can I say? Nerds and Geeks rule!
