GenCon Day 0
Today has been a rough day. It was hard to sleep and even harder to get up at 5:30am. I packed the night before–work clothes, fun clothes, laptop, camera, and snacks. My MP3 players were charged–one for the plane, one for backup–and the airport was only 15 minutes away. We arrived at 6:15am and I was so thrilled by short time it took to get there I completely missed the 25 minute security check line that trailed out the door of the airport….
Thankfully those 25 minutes were not in vain. I wore slippers that made my check through effortless and it turns out that the check point led me right into my gate! What a convenient coincidence! I slept through most of the flight and the next as well. Got to the hotel by airport shuttle and found my room in a very roundabout way. The kind only a fatigued bleached blonde could do.
There was not much else to do so I ate a packet of dry Ramen and hung out with some con-mates for a little while at P.F. Chang’s and went fast to sleep I will be in a matter of minutes. Early to bed and early to rise they say, even though I’m terribly exhausted. I hope I rest it off well enough cause I need to be getting up and ready at 7am and down in the lobby by 8:15 to get badges, decks, and to our blackjack tables by 9am.
Gonna be a long day tomorrow.
