Overwhelmed

We have just returned from Fan Expo. I'm still a bit dazed and confused. There was so much to see that I think I went into sensory overload. I think the best way to share what happened is through the many, many, many pictures I had taken today.
So, here goes:
We took the GO train from Oakville into Toronto.


We were not the only ones heading to the city for the Expo. I actually felt under-dressed:


Here we are looking as the train enters the station:


I prefer this method of travel when I know I will be walking for the better part of the day. It's nice when someone else does the driving for a change. I especially like when I get a chance to look more closely at the scenery:


It was held at the Metro Convention Center.


All sorts of characters accompanied us there:



The line to purchase tickets was not that bad. I heard it was awful on Friday and Saturday.


I think we waited about 10 to 15 minutes opposed to the three hour wait the previous days.

Once inside, my senses went into overtime. There were so many booths and exhibitioners to visit. I had fun at this one:

I have no idea what game I was playing. It involved a knight and a sword.

There were so many characters of all shapes and ages:


There were lots of booths filled with comic books, displays and artists:


.......And the answer to who watches the Watchmen?

........Brian!

Still more characters and displays:


Believe it or not, there was even a Muay Thai demonstration:


Here are the goodies I came home with:





These are my favourite:




This one especially:


Look closely....

.....It's addressed to me:)

It was an awesome day in Toronto!!

I'm sure there is a ton I'm leaving out. I'm a bit tired and still overwhelmed. I think I will call it a night. I hope you all enjoyed your week ends. Good night.

I Have Video?

Today was spent rather quietly. We slept in. Walked to the mall for lunch. Watched the remaining episodes of Nurse Jackie. (OMG!! If anyone else watches this program and wants to chat about the finale, by all means, let me know!) We also cleaned up the apartment. We were feeling quite proud and ambitious. Perhaps too much. We thought we would comb Rebel to add him the week end cleaning and test out the feature I just discovered my camera.
It sort of went OK...........

We should have named him Cybil. He throws off some severe mixed signals.

I'm off to bed early tonight. We have a long day ahead of us tomorrow. I'll be sure to post lots of pics of the Fan Expo we will be attending tomorrow. Have a good night everyone.
