Me 2 (B&W)

I exist! And exciting sightings in elevators

Still recovering from San Diego Comic Con. Managed to be functional, if draggy, Monday at work. A post or posts about Comic Con are forthcoming and growing in a Word document, so you will hear my thoughts (and see my pictures) eventually.

Here's a teaser:

How's this for a sign I was in a different, special place? Friday late morning, after I'd checked into my hotel, I started towards a hotel elevator and also showing up at that elevator was STAN THE MAN LEE, plus an assistant talking into a phone or walkie-talkie to make sure other people who ran things knew where Stan Lee was. I SHARED AN ELEVATOR WITH STAN LEE. It reminded me of that "I'm in a different place" feeling I had when I was at San Francisco International Airport's Arrivals area in 2007 and a guy walked by in a NASA jumpsuit.

Another time in another elevator (I made a voice post about this even) I ran into Jamie Hyneman of Mythbusters. He was wearing a T-shirt, not his usual button-down lab shirt. Attention anyone hot for Jamie: he is built. Strong upper body. Not anything I'd've noticed on the show. He had on his beret too. (But his mustache? Totally fake.)

Also, I think Guillermo Del Toro tried to hold an elevator for me. Thank you, Mr. Del Toro!

And IF...if...I'm up for it...

...I'll get out to at least part of Geek Trivia tonight at :Vendetta in North Portland. Touch base with my Portland geek peeps.

(Okay, Chris, NEVER AGAIN say "peeps." For any reason.)

I'm still pretty tired and I'll probably need to leave early (I've got errands! Groceries aren't gonna buy themselves!), but I want to make sure I get over there and see us geeks battling a good kind of battle.
