My wife is again between jobs, so my summer vacation is turning to a staycation... and an opportunity to work on my dissertation a little, too. But for the first of my two weeks off, I will be at the San Diego Comicon International. I'm a local, but I only go to the con these days to see some old friends from Santa Cruz and to help out another pair friends by working in their booth. I will be there on Wednesday (for preview night), Friday, and Saturday hawking t-shirts and Lovecraftian goodies for my friends Brian and Gwen from Sighco Graphics. And taking a few breaks to wander the floor.
