Here are the last few pictures from Comic Con:

I’m so glad that they weren’t allowing giant insectoid aliens into the convention center bathrooms. But the next question is, where could they go to  . . . err  . . . deposit frass?

Comic Con is very much a family event.  This group included fans of The Incredibles, Super Girl (love the gloves!) and The Flash, plus a tiny Batman behind his dad, who is holding hands with The Flash.

Great power, indeed

But perhaps the coolest thing was this voter registration table, on the sidewalk across the street from the convention center.  They were there during all the daylight hours, and always were signing someone up.  Love it, just love it. 

 And how about you? Are you registered to vote, or have you moved since you last voted? Or will you be 18 by November 4? It’s not too late! Generally, you need to get registration squared away  by 30 days before the election, but check your local requirements.

I finished the bind-off on the Seal Rock socks while sipping a margarita with friends.  Even though it was rather chilly, and even rained during our get-together, by gum, I was determined to have a margarita!

The bind-off didn’t suffer.  I’ve  become a convert to the EZ Sewn Bind-Off for toe-up socks.  It’s very stretchy, and easy once you get the hang of it.   Knowing left from right is important, though.

I’ve recently purchased a blender, and have been enjoying smoothies for breakfast.  Today’s was especially good.

 Put a dollop of orange juice (about a 1/4 cup) into a blender, add a roughly chopped, perfectly ripe peach, top with 1/2 cup or more plain yoghurt, blend till smooth.  Pour into a glass and  top with chopped almonds.  Yes, it’s a crunchy smoothie, and it is an oxymoron, but it’s  really good!
