Comic Vision

The other evening, I attended an event called Comic Vision. It's a fundraising even supporting the Foundation Fighting Blindness.

Family friends of ours support this charity, and invited my parents to go. Lucky for me, my mom had to work, and I got to go in her place.

me and my dad :)

It was a really fun event, with both a live and silent auction, games and solid prizes (Samsung galaxy tablet anyone?) great refreshments (unlimited wine and beer, apps, and yummy snacks) and hilarious comics. This event tours the country (6 cities, I believe) and it's definitely worth checking out.

any event that gives away popcorn gets an automatic endorsement from me
The only disturbing part of the night? When an acquaintance of my parents [not so] quietly asked our friends what had happened to my dad's wife, and was I his date? Awkward, and horrifying. I mean, we look related! That was quickly cleared up, but I made sure to introduce myself as his daughter for the rest of the evening.

Have you got that Friday feeling? I sure do. Have a great weekend!

ps. the only thing worse than people thinking you are your Dad's gf, is people who think that you and your brother are bf/gf (which has also happened)...hello? we look like twins.


  1. Glad you enjoyed your night Emma! And yes, we thought the popcorn would be a nice touch! Bummer about being mistaken for your dad's gf though. I'm sure it was just their way of expressing how fabulously youthful he looks :)!

    Thanks for the support!
