This month is usually the busiest month of the year for work. Since I work outside sometimes, because thats were the equipment is, this is when we schedule most of our outside preventive maintenance also known as Pm's. Its also the time of year for the outside construction projects. We have a roof replacement starting in a couple of weeks, a lighted landing system upgrade and a replacement DC bus in the control tower. So I'm going to be a busy camper this year.
I've also started exercising more I'm trying to lose some weight before World Con this year. I really don't want to wander around on the convention floor in pain all the time like I have at some of the comic conventions I've been to in the last few years.

I had a pretty good con this year except for an irritating passenger in my vehicle. He was annoying kid who new everything and would not shut up. We started calling him Donny as in "Shut the fuck up Donny!"

As usual spent way to much money but did get some neat stuff. Several pages from artists and several original sketches. Personal favorite is the Martian Manhunter that George Perez did for me in his new art book. Still in a lot of pain from all that standing around in line. Waited a long time for Joe Kubert but it was worth it. Very nice guy. Neal Adams was nice too but he charged for his autograph.

Had a really good time. Even though I didn't get out of the dealers room. There really wasn't much in the way of panels that I wanted to see anyway. WWC is mostly a media con now. Even so there were several comic guests. Speaking of which I got Azzarello, Risso and Johnson to sign the covers of Batman Knight of Vengeance. Words, art and cover in that order. I have found this to be the most surprising of the Flashpoint event. Azzarello threw in so very cool twists.
Bought three pages from J. Calafiore, one from Doom Patrol and two from Secret Six, they are all great. Four sketches Patrick Gleason, Freddie Williams, Rodrick DeJesus and Steve Ott. All of them the Martian Manhunter. Bought lots of Japanese cookies, four hard back trades, and two Mattel figures the assembled Stel and the Alexander Luthor and Ultraman Figures set.

Next year looks like its going to be a big year for Chicago conventions. As of right now I'm planning on C2E2 and Worldcon. Might go to WWC next year but that depends on how things go for the other conventions.
