GenCon Schedule and Info

I leave tomorrow morning for GenCon. So naturally the battery warning light in my car came on this morning as I was driving to work. What fun! So tonight, in addition to packing, fixing the trunk latch of the car (don't ask), visiting the parents for birthday pie for my mother, and making sure I have all of my notes and directions, I also need to stop by the auto shop and get a new battery. (I think this one is about five years old. I'm far from an auto genius, but I'm guessing after five years this is a dying battery.) Still, better to know today than to find out tomorrow in the middle of downtown Indianapolis, right?

I'm one of the few people I know who often ends up getting more sleep at a convention than I do in day-to-day life. Thanks to a sick 3-year-old who's been up coughing for the past two nights, I suspect GenCon will follow that pattern. This will be good, as I'd like to get my brain back. But I feel bad about leaving my wife with a sick boy for four days. Hopefully the apple pie tonight will help him to start feeling better...
