I know, just last week I admitted to having British fever...I'm coming down with a lot of weird geek ailments lately. But I am actually feeling a little sick over missing Comic-Con. I think if I won the lottery tomorrow, people would be surprised at how I would spend my money. Star Fleet uniforms, conventions aplenty, and lots of trips to theme parks. I guess it would be a little bit like Tom Hanks from, "Big".
So I've been babbling a lot lately about Comic-Con, and I thought I'd provide you some of the links to said babbling.

I think I'd make an excellent nerdy correspondent for someone at Comic-Con.

Who would you dress as if you could go in costume?
So many choices...so little disposable income.
