I was about halfway through the last post when Internet Explorer suddenly crashed for no apparent reason. (I hate Microsoft!!!) So I'm starting over and we'll see what happens. I always forget how wall-to-wall busy GenCon is, so I don't actually know if I'll be able to blog it in quite the way I envisioned. But I do have a minute of time here so I thought I'd put something down. Yesterday there wasn't much to blog about yesterday anyway. The majority of the day was spent on a plane, and all of the time when I wasn't on the plane I was on the phone with work trying to help the fix a problem with the employee photo directory. In the end I think they gave up, particularly after I pointed out that it couldn't possibly be a problem with my stuff.

After they gave up and after I had dinner we went over to the ENWorld gathering. I haven't actually posted on the forums in quite some time, but a lot of people at the gathering still recognized me so that was good. Often times these gatherings are the highlight of the convention. It's early so I can't quite say if that will be the case this year, but it was a ton of fun. After that we played "Category Five" until around 2:30, also a huge amount of fun.

Going to bed at 3:00 am when I wanted to be up around 9 am was not the brightest way to start out the convention, but I think it worked out okay. As it was I ended up spending about an hour in the convention hall before heading to lunch and then to the True Dungeon. I thought about trying to pick up all of the new Order of the Stick stuff, but it would have been a two hour wait. True Dungeon was a lot of fun, and they had made a lot of improvements, but I think I enjoyed last year's more, mostly just because I did a lot better (I ended up with 2 ultra-rare tokens and beat the final challenge).

After True Dungeon I went to a dinner for a messageboard I occasionally post to. There wasn't many people there, but the food was good, and the people who were there had a good time. Now I'm just about to leave for a HUGE "Werewolves of Miller's Hollow" game. I don't think I'll get much sleep tonight either.

Sleep is for the weak
