Weeks continue to fly by. Last weekend was the Penny Arcade Expo, which by all accounts was a huge success. My PAX was more miss than hit. I woke up Saturday feeling crappy. I made it in to the con in the afternoon because I had a meeting and needed to touch base with a few people. I did what I had to do, spent maybe an hour in the exhibit hall, and then went home. Nicole and Kate stayed out for the Jonathan Coulton show and didn’t get home until 3:30 am. Sunday was a bit better but let’s just say it was no GenCon for me. Next year I need a better strategy for PAX (and not getting sick would also help). They are doing a PAX East in Boston in March and I’m considering going to that. My family is in the Boston area and I have a bunch of friends there I haven’t seen in ages. Do some business, see some people; seems like a reasonable idea.
This weekend is GwenCon, which is basically a big weekend of gaming at my former co-workers Gwen Kestrel and Andy Collin’s house. It’s a good time and chance to catch up with people from the WotC diaspora, but I think I’m going to have to skip it this year. It’s been incredibly difficult to get any good work done the past month and I really need to have a solid weekend of that if I’m going to get out from under my current task load. Three years of the two job thing is wearing me thin.
Oh, and I’m really behind on e-mail at the moment. If I owe you one, I apologize. I am trying to catch up.
I guess summer’s officially over, though it doesn’t really feel like I had one.
