Nerds go hang out with other nerds. In costume. And eat candy.
But first, it's my son's birthday this month! He'll be one, yay! My little nerdling has achieved level 1. I love him. Every October, he'll be leveling up. He will be so tired of Halloween when he grows up!
Second, October is one of my favorite months as there are many nerdy activities to do. Costumes are more available this month, so that you can be anyone you want, from Darth Vader to Captain Kirk or Lara Croft to a Disney Princess! Nerds like becoming their heroes for a day. There is nothing wrong with that. And don't forget your pets!
Also, comic book stores get into the spirit of Halloween with free Halloween comics for the kiddies, and costume contests. Another reason to dress up! How amazing is that?

Here in Vegas there are a few options to take your nerdspawn for comic related nerding out. You can go to Cosmic Comics, Alternate Reality or even Maximum Comics, these being the three biggest comic stores in the valley. All of them are having at least one day of fun and games where nerds, and even geeks, can come and hang out with their own kind. Links below.
Another great thing about October is the CANDY! I shouldn't eat much candy, but it's only once a year right? At least until Thanksgiving, then Christmas. Hey, nerds are also a candy. That can't be just a coincidence.
So there are a few nerdy activities you can do with your nerdlings. You can dress up as a superhero and go to a costume event, you can dress up as your favorite character and go get candy, or you can just go read a comic book. I hope to see some of you out there. And please, at least wear a Halloween shirt if you don't dress up. Get some spirit people!

Stay Nerdy, my friends!
