A Story.

Okay, so I'm having my golden birthday this year. For those of you that aren't certain of what I mean, a "golden" birthday is when you turn the same age as the date that you were born.

So I will be 27 on the 27th of this month. (Presents please!!)

Now as such, I sat back and thought about what I wanted. Specifically, my parents every year get me something awesome. Last year it was money for a shopping spree, the year before it was a guitar.. The year prior to that it was an ipod. You get the picture.

This year I was stumped. There wasn't something that I oh-my-god, absolutely wanted. Dad and I talked about going to the MonsterMania convention that they were going to have in Connecticut, but the they decided to push that back until 2011.

And then... they did the unthinkable. They added Tim Curry to their list of celebrities.

Now up until that time I was toying with the idea of maybe going to the one in Maryland. I want to meet Robert Englund and Heather Langenkamp (Nightmares 1, 3 and 7 are my absolute favorites). And then, they went and put my first British crush on there? Hell yes.

So guess what? My birthday will be celebrated a little late, in September, at Hunt Valley! I got my VIP tickets today, and the hotel room. I will be accompanied by Santa himself (after all, he's paying, and he's the one that got me into horror movies in the first place) and I suspect we will have a grand old time.
