Sorry about the lack of the last couple of regular posts. I attended GeekyCon that was held in Orlando this past weekend and because I commuted each day rather than stay overnight in a hotel the fatigue got to me by the time I got home each evening. The computer just sat closed … waiting.
The weekend was great, full of fangirling, and watching my oldest granddaughter (12 yrs old) have a ball geeking out over all the cosplay and meeting famous/semi-famous people.
Overall, we talked with screen writers, authors, tv stars, YouTube stars…and just regular people young at heart who love to dress up and have fun by sharing their love of fandom. I couldn’t ask for a better weekend.
Her highlight was getting a hug & picture with Jon Cozart (YouTuber). I had to get her to sit down and breath – lol. My highlight was meeting Kim Rhodes and the sisters from The Hillywood Show. Got pictures with them as well.
So who do you fangirl over? Who have you met? Have you ever gone to one of this Cons?

Who watched the mini-series “Tut”? It starred Ben Kingsley and Avan Jogia (swipe the drool from my chin) consisting of 3 2-hour episodes.
“Explores the drama of power, political back-stabbing, war and murder and chronicles King Tut's rise to glory, his efforts to rule a chaotic empire and the enigma surrounding his death.”
I’ve had a little interest in Egyptian history, however never really took much time to do a lot of research. I’ve watched bits and pieces of things about King Tut on Discovery channel, but didn’t really pay much attention, other than there’s supposedly a curse on his tomb. I few ideas came to mind to tuck away for a possible, one day story. Yet, here it’s never taken shape. Maybe I should rethink some of my old notes.
Meanwhile, I’ve got to admit that I was well drawn into this show. The scenery was superb. The storyline intriguing, especially since I never really knew much about King Tut’s death, only that he died young. It didn’t surprise me that he was married to his sister. Their way of keeping the bloodline pure…but in reality, it caused many miscarriages, physical deformities, and probably some mental ones. No surprise that many royalties were paranoid.
There were times, of course, that I yelled at the tv. Like naïve Suhad, trusting Ay’s son, knowing that people were trying to kill her because she was pregnant. Then to let her guard down? *head shake* Big mistake.
The show was full of agendas, treachery, deceit, and complete chaos. He truly couldn’t trust a single soul. So sad. Possibly Suhad, but even she, being around the palace for a while thought she could be Queen since she would bear an heir.
His life was the perfect making of a great, drama-filled story.
Did you watch it? What did you make of it? The floor is open.

Happy Monday Morning!
