I forgot to do the five-for-Friday. I was too busy getting ready for HEROES CON!

I wish you could have been there. It was an amazing time. And the costume contest, when the kid dressed as a grey turned out not to be a costume and the Feds showed up and quarantined the entire convention floor... just... wow. It all turned out okay. Someone loaned the little guy their cell and he phoned home.
