    biggrin GenKhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan 2007

    So Phoe and I are set to go this year. It's wonderful, cuddly, and awesome all mixed into one supercharged package. Plus GenCon is cool too.

    So who's going and does anyone want to meet for a coffee or something? Our schedule is pretty busy but We can spare some time for the cool-y-ites from GitP.

    I'm also a GenCon virgin so any points or cool insider hints would be nice too.

    GenCon is going to get rated R (or even NC-17) as everyone's favourite (read only) naked emperor will be showing up.

    Also my girlfriend, and if rumours prove to be true, there's a chance I'll be bringing an undead music legend.

    GenCon? Cool!

    You guys have a great time and take a lot of pics. 'Cause you know...You said it yourself, Amotis...

    And, well, you know that anything D&D related, or that shows one more pixel of Spore or Fable 2 should be documented and reported immediately.

    I am led to believe it's a convention. For geeks. I am also led to believe Gen stands for Geeks en' Nerds.

    And thus, us being geeks, we tend to go there. There is a lot of cuddling and stuff.

    Oh, we do geeky stuff like dressing up like superheroes and aliens and whatnot, too. But more cuddling.

    GenCon. It has everything. Even that.

    This has been a message from PhoeKun, erstwhile Voice of All Humanity.

    Take lots of money and don't be afraid to buy anything. I missed out on one sweet battle axe last year and I'm still kicking myself for it.

    What? Some of us in developing countries never even heard of a convention.

    No, we have no claims to true geekdom. If it helps at all.

    I'll be going

    I have two reasons to not want to wait for August:
    1) I'm going to Gencon (and that can NEVER be a bad thing)
    2) I will then be living in Indy, my birthplace, and a much cooler place than Florida

    Last year we did the whole "road trip across the country thing" with me and 2 of my friends, it was a grand 'ol time except for the fact that I spent around $1000 on that trip without needing "place to sleep" expenses.

    I felt bad though because I failed to get in contact (and hangout) with an old friend I haven't seen in... uh... 3 years now. But that doesn't matter now that I will be living there. I'm so happy

    That's so true. It's one of them "cultural gaps".

    I shall be there.
    And I believe I may have talked Zeb into coming too, although I don't think that's confirmed yet.

    I was supposed to organize an 'official' meetup for Thursday night, for the boards. I.....haven't yet. But hey....if I can get an indication of how many people would be interested in coming to one that night, and what type of location they would like it to be at, I should still have time to do so.

    So let me know, k folks?

    An 'official' meet up would be pretty nice, I think. I'm pretty sure Amotis and I would show up to something like that. Of course, I have no idea where it would, should, or even could be held. GenCon and Indianapolis noob, and all...

    I've been meaning to ask the half dozen or so people I know in Indy to check out possible locations that would be good for many random internet strangers to meet up at. I think I might try to get that done tomorrow. I haven't talked to any of them in a while anyway...

    Edit: Hmm... There is this place that (for some unknown reason) there is an ad for taped on the wall next to my computer.
    Here is what the ad reads:
    __________________________________________________ ___________
    Corner Coffee
    Serving you more than just coffee!

    On the corner of 11th and Alabama st downtown

    Serving breakfast bagels all day and fresh sandwiches, salads, and soups.

    Bottomles cup of coffee for only $2

    Free Internet (WiFi access)

    Live music every Friday and Saturday night

    Open Mic Poetry Night every Thursday

    Visit our website at www.cornercoffeeindy.com or call 317-916-9805
    __________________________________________________ _____________
    A couple immediately forseeable problems with this:
    1) The ad could be as old as 2 years, and thus not entirely accurate
    2) We don't know how big the place is or if it will even be open when we want to go.

    And I don't know if its just me or not, but the website doesn't come up. So that does not bode particularly well either. I guess I could always try the phone number tomorrow.

    Um, I'd suggest something in Broad Ripple. It's nice there and there are various bars, including a cool English pub (forgot the name, though).
    I think the phrase rhymes with 'clucking bell'.
