We dodged the hot weather last week.  It's been really hot since SDCC ended.  Like Bangkok hot.  Gone are the days of the dry heat in San Diego.  It's muggy.  Gone are the days of crystal clear skies.  There's those perpetual storm clouds looking east.  The emergency broadcast system even had to issue a flash flood warning. Rain in July?  My AC is on from 9am-9pm.  Normally I don't have to turn it on until about 2-3pm and it's off at 7pm when it starts cooling down.  It's the new climate.

Yeah, this heat is getting on my nerves too.

Sad. In 2012 when I went for the first time the weather was gorgeous just like you described. Since then it's been getting worse every year.

you have my sympathy. I kinda find it nice to get back to the routine of daily life tho. Hopefully once the sleep schedule is adjusted you'll find the same routine.

I am extremely grateful my only 'job' this month is selling old collectables on ebay and reorganizing my entire place in prep for fulltime school in Sept.- and getting ready for a week long camping trip with my mom & sister to the north rim of the grand canyon-
tbh, and with no disrespect to guys, it's going to be so nice chilling with the girls & no guy drama- i don't know what it is but all the guys in my family are high drama types.

Unfortunately my sleep schedule is permanently f-ed. My job involves rotating shifts. Weekends are 12 hours (12-12), followed by a week of working 2p-10p, and then a week of working 8a-4p. I won't get a decent night's sleep for a while. The jet lag (and the getting home at 5a from SDCC) does not help.

PSA for those who had Thinkgeek reward points and received a Gamestop certificate: the expiration date is coming up within the next week. Use that money now!

I was able to spend my $$$ on a Harry Potter Advent calendar... :D

I took a class on making build ups and it was neat! I love creepy makeup jobs. I just may actually take some classes for kicks!
I didn't know we were going to do a hands on class. This was my first time and without my readers. Not too bad. My friend thought it was real. Or he was just being nice.

I'm waiting on the return of The Dark Knight Returns series, first printing, that I had Frank Miller sign...here's to hoping the same happens.  Dropped it off at NYCC, if the math works out, early January is when it's due back.
