If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

(My mostly on-topic ramblings about knitting. And life in general. My life in specific.)

I'm a middle aged mother of 2 grown children and wife to a man who doesn't seem to mind my almost heroin-like yarn addiction. I spend my time writing, knitting, and generally stressing out.

Gen Con Is Here!

Holy crap! I've missed Gen Con! This year is especially exciting because we will be exhibiting! Whoo-hoo! If you are at Gencon, come by booth 942 and say hi to me.

T and I set up our retail space in the Exhibitor Hall today and I have to say, it was kind of a shock for me. Yeah, I knew what the hall looked like without Gencon in it. I knew that it would be a big empty space with nothing really special going on. I knew all that logically.

But logic doesn't really help when you walk in and it's all bare floors and boxes on pallets and carpets in rolls. I felt the illusion--the magic--of the dealer room evaporating away with every glance at an unskirted table or a disassembled display rack.

Still, we were able to get set up nicely before the hall closed up for the night.

When we were almost ready to go, I spotted something unusual. In the distance, over the top of the booths, I saw a giant mecha-robot moving down the aisle!

Yeah. It was just a forklift with two rolls of carpet. But keep in mind I desperately need glasses. There was a moment when I was illogically afraid.
