Will is currently at Javits attending his first ComicCon with Mike today. I told him to bring me anything on X-Men. :-)
He and Mike actually went yesterday, and waited on line for over an hour before the Fire Marshalls announced that no more tickets would be sold. My heart broke for Will when Mike told me, because he was so excited just looking in at all the craziness going on. He didn't even say anything; he just quietly told Mike, "We'll find something else to do today." That actually makes me feel even worse than if he had blown a gasket. So I told Mike to just get tickets online and make sure he gets in today, and that's what he did. I'm so excited for Will, because I know as an adult, comic conventions are so much fun - imagine being 6, really getting into superheroes and then going to a place that's wall-to-wall comic books and people walking around dressed as superheroes.
Breaking him into geek culture is awesome. I'll have him dressed up like a Colonial Space Marine any day now...
On another note, I signed on for the Self Magazine Self-Challenge the other day. I sign up for it every year, and unbelievably enough, the only year I actually completed it was the year I was pregnant. It's three months of Self magazine challenging you to work out, eat right, and take care of yourself. Month one's challenges are to eat 1600 calories a day (I actually have to go a little lower, since I'm on Weight Watchers and trying to lose, not maintain), do three 30-minute cardio workouts three times a week, and three 20-minute strength sessions three times a week. This year, I'm going to do it and I invite my friends - and anyone else reading this - to join me. You can add friends to your profile (Self.com will e-mail them an invitation) and check each other's progress (no, we won't see each other's weight, just our workouts) and send each other private messages. It'll be fun, c'mon!
I was on a cooking rampage yesterday, check out Domestic Goddesses to see what I made. And yes, granola was most definitely on the menu. :-)
