Cranky

Why am I cranky, you ask?

Because it is 12:20, and I am writing this from LaGuardia, when I should have been at GenCon two hours ago. I left the house at 5:30 this morning and have no prospect of getting to Indy before 5:30 PM.

I almost decided not to go to Gencon, so that I could spend a weekend doing all the wonderful things boffo9 mentioned in his post. Instead, I'm spending ten hours sitting in an airport.

Explain to me why this is worth it, again?

Also: don't fly USAir.

Update:
Less cranky now. Thanks for listening to me vent. I will stay up late tonight and play silly games and I will still have two and a half days of gaming goodness. I'm just annoyed about missing Jared Sorenson's game design seminar. Sigh.

This is why I generally avoid giving people advice.

I feel so responsible when I inevitably steer them into a sand-dune (only the kind that's made out of shit).

I am sorry for your suffering. I do hope that you are on a plane by now playing a computer game or reading a book about intelligent, powerful women (or cats) and not hanging out with the world's people in an airport.

Heart you.

If it makes you feel better I had gay sex twice last night. Once at 11:30, and then a wake-up call at around 5:00...

Yay for HOT GAY SEX!!!

Aren't you guys in the air yet? I'm going to leave the job soon. You guys should already be in glorious Indianapolis doing glorious game stuff on my behalf.

And remember, when you best someone in any competitive game, raise a drink to me and then smash it over the loser's head. I assure you that will make me feel happy.

This is so totally unfair. You are supposed to be making gamers feel jealous of how wonderful you are!

As for advice, if I could retro back time, I would say, fly Independance Air. So much cheaper and better than USAir. As for USAir, the phrase 'pricey vomit' comes to mind.

See, it is good that I'm not going. This way I can commiserate with you while you wait for Incompetance Air to get going. If I had gone, I would be wondering about where you were and wondering if you stayed away on account of my own obnoxious nature. ;)

I can only assume that the fact I haven't heard from you suggests that you are in or on your way to Indianapolis. I really really hope so!

To cheer you, I have found 1960s goodness:
