Drawing of the Week: Going to meet the InLaws

While watching Haven I liked the episode with the Deep One folk going into the water. I thought this would be a great drawing of family of deep ones going out to meet the InLaws

From Wikipedia:

Pince-nez ( /ˈpænsneɪ/ or /ˈpɪnsneɪ/;[1] French pronunciation: [pɛ̃sˈne]) are a style of spectacles, popular in the 19th century, which are supported without earpieces, by pinching the bridge of the nose. The name comes from French pincer, to pinch, and nez, nose.

Although pince-nez were used in Europe in the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries, modern ones appeared in the 1840s and reached their peak popularity around 1880 to 1900. By the late 1930s, they were popular mostly with the elderly.

I bought a pair at a great price a number of days ago and I realized that the magnification power is close to what I am using for reading. I have taken to wearing them for short reading. Oddly enough I now notice the bows of regular glasses when I wear those.

I believe they look cool. In a Laurence Fishburne/Morpheus kind of cool.

More Dragon Con ReCap

I wish I could have posted more items earlier in the week. Unfortunately, a storm dumped a ton of rain on Binghamton, NY. my Mom's house had a full flooded cellar and 8 inches of water on the first floor. This type of flooding requires inspection for livability. This may take months.

Sorry this missive is a bit of a downer.

I am so thankful to run into old friends and make new ones before the skies opened up.

Here are some Hipstamatic images.

Dragon Con 2011 ReCap

Recap day 1 of Dragon Con
For those of us who trek to Nerdy Gras, AKA Dragon Con 2011 are now back in to our real lives again. Dragon Con celebrated its 25th year and it was just as great as all the previous years that I have attended. Each year is different as there are new interests and old favorites that make each year special. Yes, we go to see our favorite actors and artists. But as William Shatner said in his panel S&*T My Captain Says, Panel II "Most fans come to these conventions to see each other" Yes it is a gathering. Like the tailgaters at football games who can see each other every week for football season, we fans of geekdom make our pilgrimage to the largest fan convention (fan conventions are different from say the Comic Cons) once a year. And do we do it right. Starting on Thursday with pre-registration badge line. If you get there early you run into people you see from far away to hang out until the doors open. From the time the doors open we were done in a half an hour. But we did stand in line for an hour and a half.

Thursday day, a group of us will use the down time for a soak in the Marriott hot tub. Then it is off to the High Museum to take in a bit of culture. Dinner was at Havali with some Brit Track folk. Stopped off at the Hyatt to say hello to some Need Coffee folk and from guests of the convention. Security was nice enough to hold my bike at the concierge desk as it was causing a traffic jam with people taking photos of it. I had the bike locked so I was not too worried about it. Thanks Hyatt security!

Thursday night for the Need Coffee Dot Com, The Unique Geek, and some guys form a Site Called Fred venture over to Trader Vics for Big Mike's Show. It is also Fez night, and night of bonding with others who wear will wear crazy looking fez's to the more traditional red fez. I have a real Shriner's fez. The night had great drinks and good fun.

The great thing about Dragon Con is you don't have to always travel in a designated group as everyone has different tastes. Most of the time I reach a designation and find people I know there. well Thursday was great!

Banyan trees

In the village, town, suburb of Miami the Coral Way has Bayan trees down the center of the road. At times it seems you are biking into a tunnel. A tunnel of living matter.
