The Wall Street Journal has a link to my site: http://online.wsj.com/article/the_weekend_adviser.html?mod=djemtct
You have to scroll to the bottom of the page, to “Blog Posts About This Topic.” That post of mine had almost nothing to do with that topic, but I’ll take the links where I can get them I guess!
A while back, Karl was kind enough to send a link to this site that I thought you might all get a kick out of: www.aliensurvivalguide.net
The site gives info on how to survive an alien invasion, describing how you can defend yourself in different situations, a brief history, and how to tell if you are a target for alien abduction. These and other fun tidbits are a great way to waste some time on a lazy Friday!
Perfect little site to get you in the mood for the upcoming movie Invasion, starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig.
Have you ever checked out the site thingsyouneverknew.com? I’ve been wasting some time looking at fun stuff on there. And seeing some gems like this set of books to the right.

Finally, I’ve gotten my laptop plugged into the internet!
I’m having a great time.. keeping busy..
I still need to scan a couple photos in, but here are a couple from my digital camera. They’re from Universal City Walk.
I’ll post photos from the con soon!
Hope you all are having a great week too…
And here’s my new favorite comic shop:
From Creation’s Grand Slam SciFi Summit guest list:
He is best known for his role on the original Star Trek as Sulu. And most recently guest starred on the hit show Heroes, as Hiro’s father.
From George Takei’s official website:
George’s acting career has spanned five decades. It began in the summer of 1957, between his freshman and sophomore years at the University of California at Berkeley, when George answered a newspaper advertisement placed by a company casting voices for a motion picture. The film was Rodan, a Japanese science-fiction classic about a prehistoric creature terrorizing Tokyo. In a sound stage on the MGM lot in Culver City, Calif., George dubbed the original Japanese lines into English, creating distinct voices for eight characters.
