Mark, I've seen how you roll dice, I am amazed you haven't tried a holy water bath from a half dozen different religions on them...

I would fix them for Mark but this works to my advantage.

Just checking over the tickets left, and like usual, we're pretty much completely sold out except for Wed and Fri morn/afternoon (those are usually our least accessed games). So 24 tickets left of which only 9 are not either of those days.

In a week's period of time, Mark should be in the midst of his 1 day 290-hour drive, uphill all the way from Massachusetts to Columbus Ohio. Funny thing, his drive home is also uphill all the way too...

And dodging bottles of orange liquid all the way.

Guess I better write a PA this week.

(No puzzle traps this year, i promise)

And for the record, this extra week is really not leaving me in a happy place right now. I am ready to crush GMs souls right now, waiting a week is miserable.

Ok, the PA is done, printed and packed.

The rest of the gaming gear...surprisingly to no one has gone unused or unpacked since last year.

I could really leave now except none of you would be there and the concierge would probably feel awkward when i try to lure him into a game.

We could probably round up a game :)

Good news, I arrive in Columbus Monday around noon and leave the following Monday at 12:30. Seeing how many Origins I have been to, my plan is on Sunday to close out the dealer's hall at 4 when they announce that Origins is officially "over" (silly rabbit, Origins is never officially over). This will only be the second time I've closed out a show. So looking forward to this, seeing everyone, and trying a bunch of new restaurants...

Socks, underwear, aspirin, charlie's cargo shorts ( only applies to Charlie), our badge lanyard, blank notepads, a personal water bottle, spectacles, back up spectacles, character sheet, hand sanitizer, spending money, medications, spare phone charger, witty t shirt, pants, kilt (applies mostly to ken), and your game bag.

The rest we can fake.

I'm having some difficulty finding my monster eye lanyard this year. I did, however, find the Origins 2008 lanyard in the bottom of my desk drawer. It's in decent shape, although the Origins decal is starting to peel....

One sleep 'til...

Well, one sleep for most of you. Some of us will nod off a couple times this afternoon as well.

Save travels, everybody. Do not stop to gather any orange beverages.

First report from the road, absolutely no orange bottles spotted thus far. Two deer and two turkeys which is a new one for me. I am almost to Shane‘s house will report when we stop for gas.

Just called and spoke to Mark. They are almost to the Pennsylvania border, but still on the New York side. They have seen 3 deer now, but he didn't mention any orange bottles to me, lol. Said they may stop for lunch somewhere, but wasn't sure where at the moment. So they are good so far. Safe travels and have fun!
Think! - Its not Illegal yet.
