I’m a Trading Card!

So… I’m having, like, the worst day at work EVER.


During an afternoon browse through my favorite blogs, I took a trip over to Pop Candy – the best pop culture/entertainment blog – to cheer myself up, and I saw this:

The adorable and cool and smart and Converse-clad Whitney Matheson, the genius behind Pop Candy, is taking trading cards to Comic-Con this year, and I’ve been immortalized on one of them. I am beyond the beyond with giddiness. I’m thismuchcloser to actually becoming a comic book superhero. Right on!

And look how cutie Whitney is in her comic book state:

This is not the first time Whitney and I put our black hair and Converse together. Here we are making our mean faces at a meet-up in Austin in 2009. It kinda seems like with our shared taste in scowls, footwear, and hairstyle, we were meant to be buddies, at least online. Thanks, Whitney!

If you’re not reading Pop Candy, you really should subscribe. It’s fun entertainment news – movies, TV, books, comics – with lots of personality, no mean snarkiness. It’s all happiness and rainbows and unicorns and Whitney goodness. And if any of you are going to Comic-Con, say hi to Whitney and get your hands on one of my trading cards!
