Comic Con!

Kimmi and I made it through the mountains of Colorado, Utah, Arizona and California, but we've finally it our destination! The mountains were beautiful, especially in Colorado, but man were they scary to drive in! I can't decide if Colorado drivers are the best in the country, or just the craziest. The speed limit along all of those curves was 75 mph! How on earth could someone do that in nice weather, never mind the winter?

Utah was the longest, most mind-numbing state to drive through. Pretty, but very empty. It felt like The Hills Have Eyes every time we went 100 miles without seeing anything, only to pass an ominous "ranch exit" leading to a dirt road and more mountains.

Las Vegas was gorgeous! I'd never been there before, so it was very exciting! We spent the first night gambling at Caesar's Palace and the next day walking around. We visited Mandalay Bay, the Luxor, Excalibur, New York, New York and the Monte Carlo, off the top of my head. And then, of course, we gambled in the Bellagio. We won $50 playing roulette, which was fun. I wanted to play that, because it seemed like a very Vegas game. I loved our hotel at the Bellagio. I took lots of pictures. It was very fancy.

Comic Con has been amazing so far! We saw panels for Burn Notice, White Collar and Psych. They were all hilarious, and we got lots of free stuff from them (if we ever get time to claim it). We also went to a screening of the season two premiere of Being Human and were surprised by the cast introducing the episode! We watch the season five finale of Doctor Who after that. It's really fun watching those things in a room full of people who are as obsessed as you are. There was even someone dressed up as the TARDIS, the Doctor's space ship!

Today we are seeing the cast of Bones, Joss Whedon and the cast of Being Human again. Woo hoo! The only thing that would make this trip better is if my stupid computer would work! :(
