Life without Gen Con

This is the first year since Gen Con moved to Indianapolis, Indiana that I will not be able to attend. I know I'm only an hour and a half away, but I just can't make it this year. I want to go really I do, but unfortunately this year real life got in the way. Luckily it isn't some horrible or traumatic event, just a case of bad timing. Still I, like many gamers, spend my whole year looking forward to these 4 days in August, but not this year.

So while the other bloggers are posting about how they are getting ready for the con, I'm sitting here in front of my computer seething with jealousy. I know there are many like me that will not be making the trip this year and others who have never had the experience, so I should just be glad that I'm only missing one year and will have another chance next August.

Damn it I wanna go!

Ok, now that I have that bit of whining out of my system... I still don't feel any better. So for all of you who get to go I hope you have fun and when you are in the middle of a game and need a high roll... I hope you get a 1!
Just kidding.
Have fun and have a safe trip. That way you can rub it in and make me even more envious when you get back.

Hey, at least you're in the right country :)

Look on the bright side. While they're gone we've got the WHOLE internet to ourselves. Bwahahahaha.

Too true my friend. When the cat is away....

Yes! Now we shall conquer the bloggersphere!

But really, that's the only consolation I get for being so far away from GenCon.

It is practically in my back yard so the fact I can't go is incredibly annoying. I almost wish it were further away so I could at least use distance as a consolation.
