Comiconn & Baking (what an odd combo)

Mike+Shannon-ComiConn-Aug 2012And already Sunday again. Weekends always fly by too fast. Had a nice relaxed weekend all in all. Friday night after work we met up with our friends John & Jana at Rizzuto's. Had dinner and then Jana and I headed to the movie theater and saw the new Disney movie "The Odd Life of Timothy Green" starring Jennifer Garner. It was a cute movie, definitely a Disney feel-good-movie. :) 

Yesterday, Saturday, we slept in late and then headed to ComiConn in Trumbull, CT (the CT version of the huge comic book & sci-fi convention in San Diego) When we got there in the early afternoon the line was wrapped around the entrance of the Marriott so we decided to leave and have a few drinks with our friends Tim & Sam at a nearby pub before coming back later. When we tried again around 5 it was much calmer and we were able to get in right away. 

The main reason for going was to see our friend Shannon who was promoting her book there. (see picture on the left) You can also click on this link to see her webpage. We had her sign a copy of her book so if she ever gets famous we can say we have a first edition signed copy. :)

Today we slept in again and in a little bit I am heading over to my friend Jana's apartment. She invited me over to bake. :) We will be making pie. Well, let's be realistic. She will be doing most of the work and I'll be helping. :) My cooking skills aren't terrible but I am definitely not great with baking. I can make a yummy banana bread though. So I guess not all is lost. :) 

That's about the re-cap for our weekend so far. Tomorrow is already Monday again. Another dentist appointment. This time for a cleaning. Not getting any more fillings done until January since I managed to max out my insurance for the year already. Pretty impressive. LOL. 

Mail Update: No letters have gone out. Received letters/still owe a response to: Nina/WA, Charles/TN and Emilia/Finland.
