Under One Month

I've been sporadic in my appearances at blogger games of late. I have good reason for this. I expect that after next week however, I'll likely be back to my regular schedule of play. In fact, I might ramp up the play a bit for a while as a means of distraction. But I choose not to dwell on that part of the future right now as there will be plenty of time for that when it's time.

I think two people that read this will know what I'm talking about. The rest can guess.

Anyway, let's talk of more interesting things... like Eh-Vegas!!!

Less than a month to go before some brave souls make their way north (or south if you're a Tuckfard, and east if you're Joanne) to the Big Smoke, Hogtown, the T-Dot, T.O., Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I have no idea what the count is like. Last I checked it was something like 16 or so people, with a bunch of fence-sitters on top. CK just announced she's a lock, coming up with Al and Riggstad. Awesome. I haven't heard if our old compatriot Guin is making an appearance or not. He's practically non-existant these days with a new(ish) house, new company, and those other life-related things. Anyway, I'm not going to mention everyone, because I'll miss them. Except maybe that Iakaris is coming back to his hometown for the event too.

It'll be a blast. Gambling, drinking, degeneracy... and we have an all-night diner or two kicking around (although no Denny's. I think you have to drive a good 20-30 minutes before you hit one... no worries, Fran's is better). There's even more all-night Chinese restaurants though.

Quick details as I know them:

Friday Feb 22nd - Sunday Feb 24th

- Friday is dinner, drinks, and debauchery in various forms.
- Saturday is open during the day (good time to recover and sleep), with dinner and drinks at my place (let's say 5ish) and a tourney at our local club around 7 (800m walk from my place, or 1/2 mile for the yanks). I have no idea what I'm going to do for plates, bowls and cutlery...  a cheap dish run may be in order.
- Sunday, for those still around and willing will likely involve brunch and a trip to Niagara for some casino action.

Kat's got hotel suggestions and whatnot as well.  Do you really want to miss out? I didn't think so.

Astin, if you're really willing to cook, the least I can do is provide the dinnerware (disposable, natch).

I can also bring bread, dessert, salad, and/or anything else we may need.
