Thanks for the kind thoughts everyone! To prove I don't brood about my problems all the time, here's something you might enjoy. Blog@Newsarama noted that comic shop Comicopia had a float in Boston's Pride Parade. I didn't see if an LCS did the same for WeHo Pride, but we did have a float with DC and Marvel characters:

Wonder Woman: check. American flag: check. Robin, specifically Tim!Robin: CHECK! Too bad the Catwoman costume was awful; it looked like a gimp mask with glued-on cat ears.

To do the picture justice, you gotta have Poker Face playing full-force. Once you have that winning combination you may have the same reaction I had as I watched the Silver Surfer, Wolverine, and Spidey gyrate precariously to Lady Gaga on the edges of the float: feeling so very damn proud to be living in the United States.

Anyway, enough with that malarkey. Guess what else I found randomly in my Windows Photo Gallery? Why it's me, age 17 16! Aargh, look at that baby fat. And beside me is Heidi MacDonald, whom I worshiped forever. If that name is familiar, it's because she's the writer for the comics blog The Beat. Here's a mystery for DC fans: who is that to the left of us ... is it Jann Jones?

Even more awesome in person! Though I had no idea Wolverine was a gay icon...

Aww, you're too kind! Actually, I was a year younger in that pic. Looking at it now, I just want to pinch my chub cheeks.

I must be blind... *sigh* I don't see Robin anywhere... :(

Hee, not to worry. He was facing the other street, so I couldn't get a good photo.
