Dragon Con: Day 2

Even Atlanta Police Officers need to take a nerd break every now and then.

Today we’ve got a little bit of everything. I got on the elevator with some Bama fans at 10 am who were already a little drunk. I went to the Dealer’s Room and got some sweet tee-shirts: Batman and Adventure Time. We missed the parade this year. By the time we woke up, it was already too crowded with folks who just come to downtown Atlanta every year to get a gander at the Storm Troopers.

But there’s plenty to overload your senses at Dragon Con. Last night I attended an adult origami class. It ended up being a lot less interesting – and considerably more frustrating – than it sounds. It also ruined double entendres for the rest of the convention.

After I left the Dealer’s Room, I got in the Westin elevator with a bunch of ripped dudes dressed like Spartans. A guy got on the elevator and said, “Hmm. Must be my birthday.”

Here are some photos I took yesterday. Gearing up for Round 2 tonight.
