Let's talk about the National

For starters, I apologize for the lack of posts this week. My company started me on a two month position in our corporate office - downtown Chicago in the Mart. So instead of waking up about 15 min before I start work (since I work from home). I am up at 5 to catch the 6:25 train and be at my desk at 7:45-ish. Then it's home about 6pm.

I frigging love it!

I have to figure out how I can NOT be sent back to the phones in two months. Doesn't say much about my current position when I work from home 4 days a week and I want out.

Anyway, I have a few small trades scanned and ready to post, and that was my intention today, ad then I got another out of the blue envelope from Julie at Funner Here (which I will post later), and it reminded me I was going to post about the National coming up at the end of this month. Being the hometown blogger (along with Dime Box Nick and maybe a couple others - Lifetime Topps?), any of you attending will be coming to our turf. I know Julie is in for all five days. I think Nick he was just doing one (Sunday, right?). Pat at Hot Corner Cards said he was just coming on Wednesday (wth?). I have all the days off, but my wallet it telling me just two days, so I think I am oily going Saturday and Sunday.

Soooooo.....who's coming in? Let's try and put together a blog roll hookup for dinner. I am thinking either Saturday or Sunday. Feel free to leave a comment here, or email me at 2x3heroesATgmailDOTcom and I'll get you on the list.

Also, if you are coming, or thinking of coming, and have any questions about the area, please ask. I've lived in this part 46 of my 47 years (I am still trying to forget about that year in Ft Myers).

I'll never forgot about that one steamy August night.

If you are not sure where to go, what to see, where to avoid - anything - just comment or send me and email and I'll give you the answer or opinion you desire.


  1. I'll actually be there on the Saturday. I'm not sure if I'll be able to do dinner afterwards as of yet due to other conflicts, but I'd definitely like to meet up at the show if nothing else! I'll probably be the only one in a Mike Fontenot jersey at the National.
