Oh man I want to do this. I fear my doctors will give me a massive no due to the potential of catching something from so many people.

Meanwhile, I will be here in Misery-er, Missouri flipping all the tables.

What are the chance of there being a few D&D tables?

Got confirmation on a nice summer job to pad the wallet, so I will be there! It's my first con, kind of nervous, but mostly about the travel aspects. I'm sure the social interactions will go just fine. Mostly excited!

You really need to let me know if you'll be in early and might want to do a craft store run with someone who gets an employee discount around... :wink:

:shock: Oooooooh! I will let you know when I can. I assume we will? I've not had the travel plans made super clear to me, but I was told we're leaving here on Friday morning, so presumably that means we'll be arriving something like mid afternoon to early evening.

FYI to those coming in from out of town, the site for LRR Con is next to
Sea-Tac International Airport. Thus there are several other hotels in the immediate area for those on a budget but want to go. Price check the area and find the hotel right for your budget. I hope to see a lot of you there.

It'll depend a bit on my work schedule, since I only asked for Saturday itself off... but I can't imagine it won't work out :mrgreen:

EDIT: attempting to alter time off requests to make it 2 days. It's a special occasion, I can have a long weekend.

Also, for the interested, I'd be happy to teach cross-stitch if you want to learn... I have some lil' butterfly kits to pass around- or, if preferred, I can see about altering them into lil' mana symbol kits instead! :D Just tell me if you're game, so I know if/how many to bring.

Do you really need to ask? I always pack travel knitting.

So glad you can make it! :D

Is there anything else that is going to happen other than what the current guests are? I thought I remembered something about more being added, and I just want to make sure I haven't lost my mind completely.

I don't know if Marshall is a joke or not, but I'd be stoked if he's there to just wreck me during a game :)

I hope this goes really well for you guys and everyone able to attend!!! :D Well enough that you'll be able to do it next year again!

I can't wait to see video from the event so I can at least participate vicariously. :D It would have been awesome to be able to play some Magic against fellow fans or the crew and just see everybody in person.

Thanks for wanting/being able to do something in the States aside from PAX!! :D This fan-stuck-in-America appreciates it!

Unfortunately I can't go THIS YEAR, due to short notice & airfare from FL being outrageous & not having vacation time enough to recover from the 3 hour timezone difference. CURSE YOU TIME ZONES!!! Curse you inadequate and insulting lack of employement benefits! I tried to figure it out, and financially, it COULD happen, but the time-zones are the ultimate obstruction to it being do-able. :(

Maybe me and the boyfriend will be able to go to PAX East next year and see y'all. :3 We'd have more money to spend on your merch if we did that anyway. So, slight upside, I guess?

There! Plane tickets, hotel reservation, and LRRCon ticket all purchased! I'm going to Seattle! I'm going there and not a single person here* will have any clue who I am! That's how crazy this is!

I just can't believe how crappy a choice of flights I had. Apparently, you don't want to go to Seattle from central Kentucky. Which is why I'm flying from Cincinnati. Eesh.

*: Which is to say, potentially exactly one person. If he's going.

Don't worry, nobody will know me either, and I have such a small influence on this forum because I'm really bad about posting anywhere on the internet. Looking forward to meeting some of the few usernames I know from here.
Also, to save money on flights, I have two 6 hour layovers in Anchorage AK in the middle of the night (I am from central AK)! Yay for crazy life choices :D

SomeCallMeTim you are lying, No one is from central Alaska.

Central Alaska is the area north of Denali but south of the Gates to the Arctic and West of Fairbanks the human population density is .0001 per hundred bazillion square miles.

The problem with that logic is that central Alaska is made up of one thousand hundred bazillion square miles, meaning one person lives there, meaning that one person is SomeCallMeTim.

I suppose if we're splitting hairs I'm from slightly east of the direct center of Alaska, but middle of nowhere is still middle of nowhere. When it's a six hour drive to get to the nearest Target, you can feel quite alone in the world. Not always a bad thing, but makes it a right bitch to travel anywhere far away.

When you get to anchorage they say "Anchorage has the highest percentage of STD's of any major metropolitan area, so if you go down to Chilkoo Charlies, or rumrunners you better wrap it up." When you get to fairbanks they say "meth, meth meth meth meth meth, and more meth, if you meet someone online, or in a bar, they are going to try to sell you meth"
