Comfy Con starts TODAY!!
Posted November 15, 2013 at 01:58 am

It's my favorite time of the year!! The time when I never get out of my pajamas and dick around on the Internet all day!

JK, that's every day. This time I'll have my webcam on and I'll answer questions from readers!

ComfyCon starts today and goes through Sunday this year! We've got a nice tidy list of fun panels and events listed at the ComfyCon website, or you can just tune in to the Opening Ceremonies with Randy and me at 4:00 pm EST TODAY, Friday the 15th!

We'll be going over the anticipated events for the weekend, and just generally welcoming you to our pantsless party. Just check my Twitter feed for the URL. We will proooooobably just go with this URL: But, really, we're so comfortable we don't even know what's going on yet.

(Thanks to everyone who joined me at last night's half-assed session! I needed the warmup!)

A quick reminder: if you yourself would like to do a panel for ComfyCon, YOU'RE INVITED TO CONTRIBUTE, TOO! This convention is open to the public! Just use the hashtag #ComfyCon on Twitter to promote your event, and provide a link!

I also love the podcast My Brother My Brother And Me!

My old pal R. Stevens and I used to do a podcast called Coffee and Cider! It was mostly about being work-obsessed idiots and human beings who like beverages and have cats.
