Exciting news! Comicpalooza has been on my Houston Bucket List for years, but every time I planned to go, something would happen. This year, I'm not letting anything stand in my way. I am an official blogger for Comicpalooza, and I could not be happier. In addition to marking off attend Comicpalooza, I will be able to mark off another bucket list item I never really thought I'd have a chance at doing. Meet George Takei! Yes, Uncle George is going to be at Comicpalooza, and I just happen to have won an autograph pass. When I first created my "People" list, I started off fairly safe, meet an athelete, meet a model, meet an actor, general things like that. Then one day I thought, you know, I should make my goals bigger. I may not get a chance to meet these people, but what fun is it not even trying? So I added George Takei, JJ Watt (whom I met last year), and a few other celebrities (Bill Murray, and Sweetums the Muppet for instance. What? Sweetums is totally the best muppet) and filed it away in my brain as unlikely. But that's the thing about the unlikely goals, when they end up happening, it's that much more exciting! Who knows, maybe someday I'll be blogging about how I just met Bill Murray. A girl can dream, right?
You know what would make attending Comicpalooza even more fun? If some of you dear readers attended with me. That's why I want to offer you a discount code so you can save some money on your tickets. The code is "HoustonNerdsUnite" and that will save you $5 off a 4 day pass or $3 off a one day pass. This year Comicpalooza is going to run from May 22nd - May 25th at the George R Brown Convention Center. Pre-registration is going on now at
