Things To Do In San Diego: July 31-August 1, 2010

Today my niece Johanna turns three years old. I don't know if that's the end of the "terrible twos" or just an extension, as I'm told she is my curse for being a jerk of a kid...but regardless, I'll be spending the day at her birthday party with family and friends that remind me just how important friends and family are. While a three year old might love me one second with an endearing, "Tia Rose" in her slight but husky voice, she just as easily turns and wants nothing to do with me. I can handle that. Still, that all means I'll be spending the day web-free. See you at the Casbah later...but until then, just know that my niece has the Comic-con exclusive My Little Pony. And that...that puts her on another geek-brat level entirely.
