- Also, Tom Hiddleston came to Comic Con in character, and it was awesome.
- The Sandlot cast reunites after twenty years. (And they look just like themselves. It's freaky.)

I hope your week was as cool as mine. If you participate in any similar memes, drop me a link so I can see what you were up to!
