  • Things I've found myself yelling

    It has been about six months since we welcomed a Pomeranian puppy into our home and Zorro has kept things interesting.

    Not only has he been dubbed Zorro the Destroyer, because of his penchant for turning everything into personal chew toys, but he has become an active sparring partner for Tybalt.

    A few weekends ago, I boldly went where so many other nerds had gone before: comic con. It wasn’t the big one held in San Diego each year, but it still had some big-name guest and lots of excitement.

    I didn’t cosplay — dress up like a character — but did spend several days deciding which sci-fi T-shirt to wear.
