post of stuff

LAST WEEKEND: CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) with Rina & Shirley. We ate Korean tacos & Rina had her first beaver tail (next time, deep fried mars bars!). Watched the ice skating show with Virtue & Moir. I was finally introduced to the cuteness that is the SuperDogs. Can't believe I've been going to the CNE since I was child and never saw the SuperDogs. Ended the day with a Nick Carter concert.





I also took some video. He closed the show with I Want It That Way & Burning Up



It sounds like he's singing his harmony part as if the boys were there.


THIS WEEKEND: FanExpo. I'm so tired. I think I'm going to miss today cause I need a day of rest LOL If I can barely handle FanExpo, how would I survive ComicCon?

The Saints (Norman Reedus & Sean Patrick Flanery)


John Barrowman


Christopher Lloyd


Alan Tudyk


Julie Benz


LeVar Burton


Lou Ferringo


After going to FanExpo for like 5 years now, I finally bought stuff!



A set of mini Avengers and a Doctor Who lunch box!! I really wanted an Adipose (Doctor Who fans know) but I couldn't find one :( I did see one girl holding one but didn't get a chance to ask where she got it. Lots of cosplaying. Lots of Avengers -- one guy just had the arm from the Iron Man suit but it was really intricate with wires & stuff. Must've taken him forever. There was a wicked looking Batman. Probably the best I've seen. A few really good Captain Americas. The Star Wars & Star Trek staples. And lots of anime & gaming characters that I don't know.

IN-BETWEEN: I discovered this web series called Husbands. It's written by Brad "Cheeks" Bell (an ex of Adam Lambert, I believe?) and Jane Espenson of Buffy & Caprica fame. The second season just started & I clicked the link on a whim. The first season was 11 short episodes, a few minutes each. The second season will be 3 episodes of about 8 minutes.

The series is about a recently out baseball player, Brady, who gets drunk married in Vegas to flamboyant actor, Cheeks and what happens. It's actually amazing how much they could fit in such a short time frame. And lots of cameos!!

Here's the first episode



And the link for the rest: GoCheeksGo youtube channel

Did you get a chance to meet Norman and Sean? Norman's way nicer, ahahha :)

(and yes to Cheeks being Adam's ex)

No. I don't really have anything to say! I saw them Friday night, near closing time, there were just a few people milling around so if I wanted to talk to them, it would've been a good time. Actually, when I got there, I went to the south entrance but was told that I needed to go around to the north entrance to get my wristband. Just as I was turning around to leave, Norman walks out to have a smoke. Totally did the double-take! I thought about approaching but I figure the guy is on break so didn't disturb him. Took a pic of his back though haha.

Glad you all had fun last weekend - what are SuperDogs? Great pictures of Nick - that camera does rock!

Did you go to FanExpo with anyone? Is this the thing your cousin has a booth at? CUTE Avengers swag. The lunch box is so fun!

SuperDogs do tricks, like running obstacle courses and jumping over fences. So cute.

The camera is good but holy crap, it takes forever to focus!! Not acceptable for TIFF situations so I'm requesting my old camera back for TIFF weekend :)

Ended up going to FanExpo alone although I found out after via FB that a few people I know went too! Oh well. And yep, my cousin is still doing the convention circuit.

I really hope Beaver Tails are *NOT* a literal thing. Dare I ask?

Hello Nick Carter, Tampa Bay area boy- glad to see he's survived his troubled years. (Or was that little bro?)

John Barrowman is looking handsome as ever. Does he still blog adorable things about his dogs?

Have no fear, beaver tails are not literal :) It's a pastry -- deep fried dough (in the shape of a beaver tail, I guess) and topped with stuff like cinnamon, nutella, sugar, fruit, etc. So delish.

I think Nick did go through some stuff but his brother, Aaron, was worse. BSB are still going strong though.

I don't really follow Barrowman anymore but he's still handsome and I'm sure he's still blogging about his dogs. I am looking forward to seeing him in "Arrow" though.

He's going to be in Arrow? I didn't realize. I might have to check that out.

He has a recurring role as a mysterious stranger or something.
