I have to tell you, I'm so excited for this Can Con! The panels looks amazing! AND I'll be talking unarmed combat in one, which makes me really happy. Seriously, guys, Can Con continually outdoes itself with its panels each year. I'm super excited to be going this year.
If you haven't yet registered to come, I cannot stress enough that you are seriously missing out. Go to the website now for all the details. I hope to see you there. It's going to be wonderful!
Oh, I have to tell you a funny story. Many of you know that I game a little bit. More now that I deliberately schedule time for it. I'm currently playing (and recording for your viewing pleasure) Borderlands with my Kung Fu brother Jon. Well, on the planet Pandora, there live these flying reptile thingies called Rakks. Rakks are basically death snake bats that swarm you from the sky, often striking when you wouldn't expect.
There were a couple of times this latest gaming session with Jon (Sunday), when we got swarmed by Rakks quite unexpectedly. There was a lot of jumping on my part. In any case, it seemed to condition my brain to be on the lookout for these squeaking death wyrms, because I very nearly had a heart attack on the way to do groceries Sunday.
As I walked to the grocery store, a seagull did a lazy turn, catching the very edge of my vision.
I jumped and my heart stopped beating for a bit.
Because my lizard brain screamed, "Rakk!"
No. No, it was just a seagull. Just a seagull.
It did make for a good giggle after the fact, but I'm not sure my heart can take it too often!
Right. I have to go do things. How was your weekend?
