Comic Con and New York

Wow, I'm super bad at this. Comic Con was three months ago and New York two months ago. I've been meaning to post about them every since then. Great job yeah? So anyway, here goes.

For those of you that don't know what Comic Con is (which is so many more pople than a I thought considering how huge it is and how long I've wanted to go), its a huge geek fest. Its one of the biggest conventions in the world. Its the place where you hear about all the geeks dress up and go. It was amazing. Christy got me tickets for my brithday and Christmas and went with me. She is so great. I wish I could go back every single year.
Standing in line the first day

Psych Panel. They were so funny! I love this show. Plus we got some swak out of it:)
Unfortunately this is the best picture I got of Zachary Levi. Love him!
We got really good seats for the Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog Sing-a-long. Felicia Day is so awkward and funny. Plus 2000+ people singing Dr. Horrible, some while being dressed as characters was great. We got in trouble with the fire department because we had so much fun.
Way over there in the park was were we were four hours earlier waiting and waiting and waiting. it sounds horrible but I even loved the five hour line. We made friends and saw crazy costumes and then we got in just in time for the Eureka panel with is the one I most hoped to see and it was so worth it. I would do it all over again in a heart beat!!!

The EUREKA panel!! One of my favorite shows. They were all so funny. Christy and I were laughing the entire time. Plus it was Colin Fergusons birthday so everyone sang happy birthday to him. Loved it!!
Warehouse Thirteen panel. I like the show okay. The panel was boring. Only Eddie, the guy in the hat, was funny. At least he was funny enough to make it worth it.
It's Perry the Playabus!!

My favorite thing from the floor was Dr. Who's Tardis. How
I wish I could have seen how much bigger it was on the inside!

That's a sample of it all. It was seriously so great and I know how to do it now so I am going to go back one day and do it again.

Now New York. We went again and had so much fun. I finally got to do Broadway. So worth it. I can't believe it took me three trips to go there. At least i made up for it with a couple plays.
Phatom of the Opera at the Majestic

Catch Me if You Can at the Neil Simon Theater

The top of the Empire State Building. In the picture it looks like day from the fog and lights, but in reality its like one in the morning. It was still so crazy busy at one. Fun.
We went to Serendipity and got their frozen hot chocolate. It was really good.
We only had time for a quick visit but I really wanted to see the Manhattan Temple. It was fun to see it there among the skyscrapers.
Cenrtal Park in the summer. it was so green and gorgeous. We ended up taking a small nap on the grass. It was nice.

I was so lucky this summer to go on such great trips.
