Comics, Walks, Flickr And Twitter

Today social media overflowed into my life.

SharkBoy and I got up early-ish and had breakfast at one of our haunts… the Coach House on Yonge.

They Do, if You Ensue it Happens.

After, we hit the Toronto Reference Library for the TCAF where Social Media crashed into me hard. First I met Steve MacIssac of Shirtlifter fame and while my eyes hungrily ate up his thick frame (I follow his reference pictures on Flickr and smile), I happily shucked out $6 for a signed copy of his first comic. Signed. Suck it!!

Then it was a short hop to Joel Watson’s table. The creator of Hijinks Ensue was awesome and a really super great guy.

Me And Joel!

So I bought a book and he asked what sketch I wanted in the front cover. I hesitated and asked for “Joel”, not sure if I should have said “you” since the comic characters are of real people, himself included, in impossible geek situations. He hesitated too. “Me? Usually people ask for…”

“…Josh?” I finish. Josh is a gay character in his universe who 9 times out of 10 is the funny guy to Joel’s straight (ha.) man.

This is what I got:

I like you. I really like you!

After spending some time and cash, we wandered with our cameras down to the Distillery District and took some pics:

It's a Walking Eye, Hank! A WALKING EYE!

Then we walked down by some dockside bars and met up with @TomWDart. Actually he was out enjoying the sun and looked good especially after his bout with some viral thing.

Tall Tom

On the way home we saw some tumblers. Not the drinky drink kind, the bouncy bounce kind:

Boing!

And then SharkBoy was on his knees in the park. Tsk. But he got the shot!

Tyra called...

Now we’re about to sit down with a good movie or heroin or something. A perfect day!!

  1. Wait… I only “wrote” his comic name in ketchup! We didn’t dine! But yes, that would be awesome!

  2. There are no words to describe my jealous over breakfast with Joel Watson. I suppose jealous would work but it seems like there should be a word for super jealous.

  3. i figured you guys would hit the comic thing. i thought about it but the day was too full and i don’t like comics. you should spell mr. macisaac’s name properly, though, or he might make you into a nasty character that does heroin.
