Depending on what Zeke "charges" me, that is... :bigeye

I think that scares me more than whatever Zeke wants to do to me...

Finances might not be in the works for me after all, but depending on where the final plans our for the BG meeting up, I may still be able to hang out at that.

I though I was going, but now I am not so sure.  When it came time to register for a hotel room, my job sent me out of town from 11:30 am to 5 p.m., so I missed the very limited window to register for a hotel down town.  A friend of mine at a company that reserved 85 rooms (they have a major event at Gencon) said they should have extra rooms, and I can use one of the one they reserved but don't need (the always get more then they think they will need and then drop the rooms once they know for sure), but three weeks ago they sent me an email about the room, and when I said I would take it I never heard back.

So I have registered for the con, registered for events, even have two events I am suppose to run, but since I don't have a place to stay, I don't know if I am going.

Ok, so anyone who is here!  Come see us!

We expect you all to be at the Salon at 6:00 tonight and we want to get the most use out of this Penthouse Suite as we can.  Embassy Suites room 20-03.  Top floor.  Crazyness.  Wetbar.  Verenda bigger than most hotel rooms.  2 bathrooms.  2 floors.  Must be seen to be believed! 

We haven't met a single person from the boards yet, so come on already!

Phoenix Inferno, I'm looking at you!

Also, if you email me at meg@brilliantgameologists.com I'll send you my phone number.  Thought about just posting it, but not so sure I want to do that.

Hyatt charges $10/day for internet. Hence, no internet for me while at the con. Hence, no notifications of the cool stuff.  Last time *I* stay at the Hyatt. Cheapskate bastiches.   :wall
