later on, we hit a comic book store that was showing patrick’s art! i couldn’t snap a pic of patrick’s without being obvious about it… but i got another one, this isn’t patricks but i loved it. the theme of the show is things hiding under the bed
and it was kind of the same thing as seeing nick and mandy – they both worked during the day, and i was working too… so we’d have a few hours in the evening to chill together but it was a lot of down time too :) good trip for sure. not what i’d expected, full of little pockets of fun :) it wasn’t the sweeping arc of high voltage of some of my other trips – but this was the real stuff, i got to see my friends’ everyday experience too, not just the celebration of visitors. and they helped me deal with bringing work on vacation, which believe you me will NEVER happen again.
