Went to Dragon Con this weekend. While I had a good time, it was marred by the fact that I was fighting off a cold and had laryngitis during the B5CCG tournaments I ran. I was forced to rely on sheets of paper with some 72 point fonts to give out instructions. I also had someone else there helping out and being my voice when necessary. All in all it was fun, but very draining. Next time, a) I'm getting a hotel room in the hotel (so I don't have to drive there and back), b) I'm going to abdicate running events if I'm sick and c) I'm going to spend more time walking around the con with Jeannie and Valen.

Tried to fill out my exit interview for ELNK. Apparently the email cgi doesn't like the length of my replies. I don't think it would be smart enough to screen based on content (as it is highly critical of ELNK business practices, communication and organization).

Three more days. Time to start packing up my cube and getting ready for my cross-country drive. If I were young and naive, I'd be looking on this as an opportunity to see the country. However, I know this is just going to be a lot of driving, searching for a good radio station and trying to avoid heat stroke while going through Arizona.
