Nerd Alert

This was a big week for TJ.

The first time I visited him down in San Diego, when we were dating, he told me about this magical place where people can nerd out and nobody cares.

It's actually welcomed.

Yes friends, we are talking about Comic-Con.  A time when seeing this guy walk down the streets of San Diego

Is totally normal.

TJ got to go because he is a Vendor Manager for the books team at Amazon and a few of his publishers where there.

The funny thing about this photo is that he is trying to not act too excited in front of his co workers.
I know better.
Since I have known TJ, he has wanted to go to Comic-Con.  He has tried to get tickets to go with his friends, but they were never able to get them.

So when he came home one night and told me that he was going to have to go on a business trip to Comic-Con, he was pretty excited.

One of the reasons I love TJ so much is that he is a total nerd at heart.  He loves sci-fi and always tries to get me to go to those movies with him.  

Good thing Benedict Cumberbatch was in the new Star Trek movie because that's the only reason why I went.

The one thing that I was super jealous of was that he met the Walking Dead's creator.

And got to go to The Walking Dead's After Party.

A few other celebrity sightings

Data AND Hercules 
This guy.
And yes, his real legs are the front legs of the horse and the back legs walk with them.

Jean-Ralphio was totally there and TJ didn't get a photo!
The best part is that when TJ would be posting these photos, I would see them at one in the morning while I was folding laundry, listening for murderers scratching at my door.

Night time sucks when TJ's out of town.

When TJ got home, he gave the boys a little surprise

You could say that they loved them

All joking aside, TJ and I were talking about Comic-Con and we think that the people who get really into it are pretty awesome.

They don't follow the social "norm" of what's cool.  They love this stuff and they've found other people who love it too and it makes them happy.  

I wish I could be more like that.

So go ahead people, get your nerd on!

The Davis Family fully supports you.

Just looking through the blogs today and noticed the name - TJ Davis. I have a son, TJ Davis. We're in Texas. My husband oversaw the construction of all Walgreen's in WA state!

That's all. :-)
