Bring It Home, Baby!

So today is The Nephew's birthday! Number ten, can you believe it? Do you remember when he was four? I bet some of you do, because I started this journal on his fourth birthday. Yep, that means today is also...MY LIVEJOURNAL ANNIVERSARY! Number six, if you will. Six years ago today, The BFF, liptonrm, unveiled this journal to me as an early birthday gift and ta-da, here I am still! And hopefully for many years to come.

I've been with you guys for six years now and I know I am still pretty anon in some things - my name and my face - and that, in fact, going un-anon has always been a source of anxiety for me because it's giving away a piece of my control, somehow. But here on LJ I don't really feel like that anymore. I used too, but not so much these days. Because I know you all. Like here, now, my LJ has become my own little coffee shop where I know everyone by name and face and how's the kids and is your mom feeling better and how was that convention you went too?. So while some things may always remain anonymous - my name - and certainly some will forever - no, I'll never post photos of The Niece or Nephew, sorry, they're not my kids to do so - I think it is time to take a leap that my counselor and I have been working on and just jump...into posting a picture of myself beyond the age of five, okay!

Because this is my home and my geek-place and my friend-space and if I can't be comfortable with you lot, my people, my family, then where can I? And besides, there are pictures you need to see. Geek pictures. Nerd pictures. Fangirl pictures. From today, in fact. From Motor City Comic Con, in fact. Because, yes folks, I spent today, my sixth LJ anniversary at MOTOR CITY COMIC CON! Which was a coincidence, but it gave me a great idea for how to celebrate the anniversary day - by giving you some glamour shots!

So without further ado, may I present to you...ME!



Me and The Sis with Graham McTavish!


Me and Wolverine, we sent it on to The Nephew with a birthday greeting!


Me and a stormtrooper from the famous 501 Legion, which I am a huge fangirl of!


Thank you all for being on this journey with me, my friends! And here's to the next year to come!
