and we have crazy cosplay, my wife makes a perfect Harley Q.
So we're at the Dragoncon, woohoo! We drove down, which was fun because we've not done a road trip in a while. I took the DB9 convertible and it's a simply amazing GT car (terrible satnav notwithstanding), so smooth, quick, and comfortable, I could have driven it all day. Anyway, so we stop at a big Gas `N Go outside Atlanta, to top off the tank and get some drinks, when some strange guy walks up and looks over the car. Then he asks: "Is this a new Ford?" "No, it's an...
Got lost on his way back from the El DeBarge concert?
Yep, and it's the steal of the century, in terms of SQ for the money.

nopeActually we're accused of being the comics police, but it's rare that we kind of band together to do this sort of thing, only when certain seminal issues are on the block.
