HijiNKS ENSUE At Calgary Expo April 27-29, 2012!

I am going to be at Calgary Expo this coming weekend with Blind Ferret at booths 925/1025!

The whole cast of Star Trek: TNG is going to be there as well. Maybe you wanna come get a Star Trek themed sketch from me and THEN have your cast member of choice sign it? I can’t even guarantee they will do it, but it seems like a reasonable request, right?

This is my first big show in Canada. Please don’t let me down Canadian Fancy Bastards. My fragile Texan constitution is not suited to your frosty wilderness. Though I do hear that Calgary is basically the Dallas of Canada, what with all the oil and cowboy hats and what not. Is there also a lot of racism? Who-boy if there is, I will certainly feel at home (or just as uncomfortable as I always feel at home).

As always, I will remind you that conventioning is thirsty and hungry and often cookieless, boozeless work. Your contributions of iced soy lattes, cookies and assorted boozes are ALWAYS appreciated and will be rewarded with a hearty “THANK YOU!” and perhaps an UNCOMFORTABLY LONG HANDSHAKE!

Here is a handy map to help you locate me!

  1. I want to give you a soy-based booze cookies in exchange for uncomfortably long handshakes…any East Coast Cons this year?

  2. Went up to Calgary last summer for a wedding. It was very Dallas-y. they even have this big-ass rodeo every year up there, Stampede. That's when were were there.

    If you have the time, get up to Banff/Bampf/however they spell it. It's frakkin' beautiful! They do have this stuff up there called "snow" that causes "passes" to close, so it might not be accessible, but if it is, it is very worth the trip up there. Makes the Colorado Rockies looks like nothing. I think the Canadian Rockies kick all other mountain ranges I've seens asses.

    We did whitewater rafting that was the best I'd ever done. We went across the border into BC to do that, in Golden. Alpine Rafting was the group we used, they were awesome. They have this basically unflipoverable raft, if you're worried about that. We went down in the regular kind.

    Have fun up in Canada, America's Hat!

  3. If you're not coming up here during stampede you'll be missing all the cowboy hats, but there's still snow in the mountains, and the mountain resorts are still open so maybe you want to get some skiing in? And don't worry about the racism thing- the only people who thought it was important that our mayor is Muslim was the media… After we elected him.

  4. I'll be exhibiting my Geekographs at Booth 1511 and I'll be flying solo this weekend but I will definitely try to swing by and thank you for all of your hilarious comics.

  5. what kind of cookies shall I bring?

  6. Found you. And I still say Star Trek V isn't completely without its good points. hahaha

  7. Oy Joel, you really have to learn how to spell CANADIAN. That said, I really enjoyed meeting you in Calgary. You wrote about Alan Tudyk bacon bits all over my book… not that it is a bad thing…

  8. Is the eye-bleeding a reference to Let the Right One In? Cuz, if so, I want to give you a virtual hug.
