I was sitting around zoning out on home shows yesterday and started daydreaming of all of the fun stuff that I’ve written about before that I have not done in a while. I think I need to look into doing them again for sure.
This one was semi-recent since it happened in May of last year, and I will definitely be going again! Geek fests like Comicpalooza are a ton of fun for people watching. Plus, at last year’s Comicpalooza, I got to meet Kevin Sorbo and my friends and I had the most awesome picture ever drawn of us as we would be as Care Bears. Seriously, it is my favorite piece of art because it’s personal.
This year’s is being held the last weekend of May and I had my ticket in March. Sir Patrick Stewart will be fun to meet and I’m looking forward to dressing up somehow I think. Maybe I’ll be a midget Darth Vader or a cute Ewok. Or a character from the card game we have all been playing, Sentinels of the Multiverse. I don’t know. Anybody have a fantastic, but cheap geek costume idea?
I also go to the Texas Renaissance Festival every year and I hope I can keep going until I can’t walk anymore…then I’ll probably get someone to wheel me there :-) Honestly, the atmosphere is amazing. People are happy, everything looks amazing and old-fashioned, and the comedy shows are superb! It’s just an addictive event for anybody with a sense of humor who likes to play pretend once in a while. I’m looking forward to going again starting after Halloween.
I miss bingo, especially free online bingo at gamevillage.com. I used to play bingo with a lady in my old neighborhood but then she moved away. I picked it up again with friends a few years ago, but the smoke is just too hard to handle in the bingo halls in our area. Driving to a smoke-free hall just sounds like work, so we have switched over to movie nights instead. But I do miss the bingo thrill and eating the crappy concession stand food. It was almost always a waste of about $20, but it was fun and affordable since I only went once a month or less.
Do you have an old fun that you have stopped? Anything you can pick up again?
