Toronto FanExpo 2014

FanExpo is a place where you can let your inner geek out. It’s not all “nerdy” stuff, you can meet the normal actors that all the ladies think is good looking. It’s just a great big room of fun and awesome things.

My sister, boyfriend and I went to FanExpo yesterday. You can get a weekend pass or day passes (Thurs-Sun) in case you only wanted to go to one day, which is what we did.

We woke up nice a early and made our way there. The best part is we missed the first bus to get to Toronto, I live 30 mins away so it’s not that big of a deal so we just waited for the next one. When we got there it was crazy, the location was the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, which is located right beside the Sky Dome, the CN Tower and the Air Canada Centre! There was a million things going on at once but it made it fun.

We found where you go in if you bought tickets online and went on with our day. We got our green wrist bands for Saturday and waited in line for them to open the doors. When you walk in you are overwhelmed with everything, every where you look there is something to buy, do or see. My boyfriend’s A.D.D was for sure going off like crazy. We started by walking around and just seeing everything, we looked to see where the photos were being taken just so we knew where we were going, then went to go adventure.

There was two buildings out of this place that took us all up, the first building was called the North Building which had all the places where you meet everyone. We went over to the South Building which has all the free stuff and most of the things you would want to buy. At this point my sister and I split up because she needed to leave in order to go get her picture done with the guy who plays in Arrow, Stephen Amell. My boyfriend and I had lots of time before we met the person who picked which I will tell you later.

When we were walking around we found the Doctor Who society which is what my boyfriend and I love (hint, hint). We found the Daleks, the guy who does their voices and the Tardis!

I didn’t take very many pictures but it was mostly Doctor Who stuff I took. But lets get to the most exciting part of FanExpo, you can meet anyone who comes to this expo, you can look online before hand to see who’s going and get tickets to meet them, get autographs, and take a picture with them of course. As I said before my boyfriend and I love Doctor Who, best show going on. Matt Smith, the 11th doctor, was there and we got tickets to get a picture with him.

You only get about 7 seconds with him because the line was massive to take the picture but it’s worth it. My boyfriend and I were so happy to meet him, he is such an awesome guy. Next year or even look in your city to see if they’re coming to you. It’s a little bit on the expensive side but once again, worth it.

We each got our own little gifts for ourselves and other people but I’m not going to post that. Check it out!

Once again thank you for reading and don’t forget to follow!

Super Bowl Weekend!

My life has be kind of almost extremely busy the last couple of days, so let me tell you all about it.

Thursday: Pretty much my whole week was crazy because a bunch of things at work started and I covered for people so it just seemed crazy. But Thursday was one of my actual shift and when I was there I thought it would be an easy going type of day, I thought wrong! It started out okay, everyone was on time and things were going well. I told all my staff I wasn’t going into the water unless it was really important because my face was burning so much from the day before. On Wednesday I was craving for a slushy so bad but the snack bar wasn’t open, Thursday it was and I was so happy I was just waiting for the crowd to go down. While I was waiting I was trying to figure out why half the stuff in my office wasn’t working, I did figure out that the plugs under the table were broken. I told maintenance that they weren’t working and it wasn’t a rush to come fix it, when they did finally come in, they walked a pretty stupid walk to tell me to hit the reset button like on your blow dryer. You have to know that at this rec centre nothing works, something is always breaking and it’s always something big, how was I suppose to know that it was that? I finally went to the snack bar to find out that her till wasn’t working, and she asked me to come behind the counter to try to make it work. First of all the damn money drawer wouldn’t open, so I go it to open finally but it wouldn’t close and pop open when someone pays. Before I got it open this pour girl had the money on the floor, she was happy I came. I told the front desk to go help her which they did. Now I got to go home to wait til 7 am for my boyfriend to finish work!

Friday: 7 am finally came, my boyfriend picked me up, as I open the car door I smacked myself in the face. I hit pretty much my cheek bone but under my eye, my boyfriend thought for sure I was going to get a black eye but I didn’t. This day we pretty much did nothing but sleep the whole day, this is what happens when you don’t have a lot of sleep and your boyfriend works midnights.

Saturday: Saturday morning was like anymore and the whole day was pretty much like any day. I woke up before my boyfriend, went pee, turned the frog lights on, watered our chameleon then sat in bed waiting for snore man to wake up. Honestly I can’t remember what we did this day, i think we sat around, got high and ate. We did however watch the leafs kick ass! Kessel got a hat trick and they won, it was amazing. I went to bed early because we were going to the reptile expo!

Sunday: Sunday morning was not like any other day, my boyfriends alarm went off at I don’t know what time but it felt early. He turned it off and went back to sleep, where as I was wide awake and couldn’t fall back asleep. I turn over to ask him if we were going to the expo because of course living in Canada it snowed a lot. He said yes, we got up and got dressed and were on our way to the bank. The reptile expo was in downsview park this time which was kinda of cool, it mostly had frogs, and snakes. There was one giant spider that scared the shit out of me because I wasn’t expecting it to be that big! We walked around the whole place to see what was there then decided on what my boyfriend wanted. I didn’t get anything for my boyfriend’s birthday and he asked me if I would buy him a frog, we went to the place called Dart Frog Inc. They had the ones he wanted which are really cute, so we pulled out our money and went for it – we ended up getting two as a pair.

This is a close up picture but they are really small, about a little bit bigger then your finger nail. I cannot for the life of me remember what they are actually called but I will get back to you on that, if anyone really wants to know. I can’t even remember what we named them but I know we named them after football players since we got them on the super bowl day.

We came home to people at the house, things were starting to get ready for the party. There was a banner made that said “Go Broncos, Fuck the Seahawks.” Which was made by the biggest douche bag fan of the Broncos, I’ll get into that a little bit later. Now I don’t even get football really, I know the point and you know the basics but other then that I have no idea. All the other people that were at this party new everything and I mean everything about football. At the start there was a paper that you had to fill out for a draw. I pretty much straight up guessed because I had no idea, at the end someone gets the money whoever go the most correct. The questions were like, “Is the coin toss going to be heads or tails?”, “Will Bruno Mars be wearing a hat?” and so on. At one point I was actually beating my boyfriend which I was so happy about. While the game was on it was so loud but was so much fun, everyone was yelling, laughing, drinking and having a great time except for one guy.

The one guy at the party was so upset that the Broncos were losing and my boyfriend was on his ass about it that he cried twice! This guy was talking shit for days and even at the party was talking so much shit, that everyone didn’t really care until he started to cry. He was getting so mad at my boyfriend but that’s just the way he is, I wouldn’t date my boyfriend if I could hack it that’s for sure. This guy was also very drunk that we needed to cut him off, at the end of the party he wouldn’t say bye to me because of who I’m dating. After though he tried to say goodbye and I said no to him and that he should leave.

The rest of the night went well though, I played beer pong with my boyfriend and his friends. We beat them and I got the winning ball, was so happy about that since I don’t really play beer pong, I’ve always gone to bars and not house parties.

Yes my boyfriend and I are wearing Miami Dolphin jerseys, he loves them and we wanted to wear something football.

As the game ended and people left it was getting quiet but my head was killing me from everyone being so loud, it didn’t help I was on the main couch and my boyfriend is the loudest guy I know. It was maybe about 11pm and I said that I was going to go upstairs to lay down for a bit, I needed darkness and peace and quiet. I did go upstairs, got naked, turned off the lights, and slept…or attempted too. It took me a couple hours to fall asleep or until my boyfriend came to bed. Can never sleep without that man.

Anyways, the night was amazing and I can’t wait until next year but hopefully by then I will know the game like I know baseball.

Go Seahawks Go!
