It’s 2.30 AM. I really should be in bed (or on sofa) asleep. But instead I’m blogging. Call me crazy? Hey, I resemble that remark!
We did more of the setting up thing today. More guillotining of little bits of paper and card, running around with brightly coloured tape to indicate where to go for various Fun Activities, and hefting the Awesome Thing of Awesome around.
Activity came pretty much in fits and starts, which was somewhat confusing. I kept feeling like a fifth wheel, or like I was slacking off where stuff needed doing. This may continue. Also I pestered people to make sure they’d eaten, while completely forgetting to eat.
Can I say again how awesome that hotel is? The staff in the shop are lovely, giving me boxes to put things into, chatting away and trying to work out what the hell we’re doing this weekend, and nodding along while I plugged Games Nights in Cassidys at them. They even warned us that our painstakingly wiggly colourful tapes may disappear when the carpets are cleaned tomorrow. They clean the convention site during the con? Wow! But yeah. Lovely hotel, lovely staff, sandwiches in the shop for under a fiver, and the attached offie sells Captain Morgans. Noodles is a happy camper. Oh yeah. Most gamers call me Noodles or Noodle.
Con opens at 10 tomorrow. I’ll be on site from 8.45 in theory. Can’t wait! Now I just hope that t-shirt fits….
