I had the best day today.
First of all, Justin and I went to Krispy Kreme yesterday and we each bought a dozen donuts. I think I will add that to my list of stuff I announce at the bottom of each post until the donuts are gone, actually. Maybe it will stop me from eating them all by myself. Anyway, my point is that my day started by eating a glazed creme-filled, which is my favorite.
Then it was time to go and participate in FREE COMIC BOOK DAY. At 11:30 or so, my friend Tara came and picked up Justin and I and the three of us headed to Comics Dungeon. It was amazing. Right off the bat there were Storm Troopers and Obi Wan standing outside on the curb.
We went inside and there were people everywhere. They had two tables set up with the participating comics (there were about 30-40 to pick from; not everything was free) and we had a ton of fun picking our allowed 7. I got a pretty good assortment, and plan to make a "haul" video on my channel later this week, so if you're interested in which ones I got, be sure to watch for that.
Then we went to a second comic shop that wasn't nearly as good, because they only allowed us to take 3. But looking back, going home with a total of 10 free comics is not bad. Not bad at all.
So after a morning of getting my nerd on, I went home, had some lovely turkey noodle soup that my mom made and had my dad drop off for me on his way home from work (I am so spoiled - I'm in college, live on my own, but still get home-cooked food now and then; and in some cases, get it delivered to me) and took a quick nap.
Then at 6, Justin and I hopped back in the car, drove downtown, got Tara, and went to this awesome "grand-reopening" of a fancy salon/the neighboring quirky clothing shop. I'm having a hard time finding a way to describe this event in a way that you'll believe I am not just making the whole thing up. Basically, this event was a fashion show. So we watched these models, who'd had their hair done by the salon, do a runway show in the clothes from the neighboring clothing store - but. That wasn't all. It was sponsored by this company (whose name I can't remember off hand) that does gourmet food from a truck. So we got these free korean style tacos and sliders. And drinks.
So, just to be clear: it was a free taco, free alcohol fashion show.
And it was amazing.
After the event was over, we perused the clothes briefly (they had pajama bottoms with pictures of bacon strips on them!) and then we went back to Tara's apartment, where we helped Justin shop for women.
By "shop for women", I mean we went on his profile on this local dating site he recently signed up for, and looked through the 26 girls he'd favorited. Tara and I were ruthless, ruling girls out based on looks, grammar usage and ability to spell, use of the word "chill" as a verb meaning "hang out", and whether or not they were music snobs/into both genders/someone we'd want to hang out with. We finally got it down to 13 girls, including the 3 Justin wouldn't let us delete because they're into football, and the 1 he downright refused to delete because she was a chimpanzee trainer.
I told him dating sites are not the way to go. I told him he needs to meet someone online in a cooler way, like through YouTube or at a Harry Potter conference. He said he doesn't have any other online social networks really... so... ladies? Want to date my friend Justin? His twitter username is @ZombieJack. (He's probably going to kill me for posting this. Hahaha.) (You should send him tweet anyway.)
So that was my day! Tomorrow I have a lot of work to do. But I also have 10 comics to read, so we'll see how that goes.
