Origins

So, here I am at Star Wars Celebration, huddled in the corner of the cafe where they have a wifi hot spot, struggling (for 2 hours, no less) with the somewhat disastrous Origins web site.  I don't know what the designers were thinking, but it wasn't about the poor people who have to use the darned thing! If I were goddess, I'd force the designer to read "Don't Make Me Think".

I managed to wrestle through it, though, and here's my schedule for Origins.

Thu 9 am - 6768: Detectives Unlimited: Light a Candle (Unknown Armies, 'cause I've wanted to try it)
Thu 2 pm - 6039: That Ship was hit by Reavers! (GURPS Firefly!)
Thu 6 pm - 7233: Heaven Didn't Want Him (Living Death - nuff said)
Fri 2 pm - 7049: Serenity Roleplaying Game Intro (the new Serenity RPG - I can hardly wait!)
Fri 6 pm - 7171: Evil Intentions (High level Living Death)
Sat 1 pm - 6679: Episode 7: Swamp Flies by Christopher Reed (Dave Arneson's Blackmoor - fantasy)
Sat 6 pm - 6675: Episode 8: The Unwanted by Dan Donnelly (More Blackmoor)
Sat 9 am - 7068: The Scouring of Cornwall - A Living Death Interactive - I'll be working for Claire again.
Sun 6 pm - 6757: Fastest Tentacle in the West (Call of Cthulhu Wild West? Though isn't the con over by then?)

So, whew, that's done. Looks like fun. Now all I need is to find myself a roommate to share my $53 a night Red Roof room - over by Ohio State, as downtown was sold out.

Edit: Put in links for specific events on Origins site. Stooopid site.

Celebration
What does one do? Well, from my limited experience, one waits in very long lines, one takes many pictures of people in quite wonderful costumes, and one buys things.

Since I lost my wallet on Friday (not long after posting), I'm back home. My money to buy stuff was in my wallet, and of course I had to cancel my credit card, so no using that either. On top of having no money to spend, I walk with a cane, and at least half a dozen times yesterday people slammed into me hard enough to nearly knock me off my feet. I just wasn't enthusiastic about the kind of crowd expected for Saturday. That, and six inches of snow predicted, so going home early looked more and more attractive.

I did see some mind-blowing footage from the upcoming movie, though. I'll be happy to plunk now my money just to watch the pretty pictures.

Sounds like a fun schedule. :)

And yes, the Origin's website is horrendous.

my thoughts
Maybe we could go to origins this year...
click on link...
Those dates are a possibility, lets see what there is to play...
*searches website*
Jae's right, this site is a total disaster, guess I don't want to go after all!


Seriously though, we might be able to go...if I get a real job, I probably won't be able to get the time off...but if not, I can always skip out on a research project.

And we got our star wars tickets yesterday!!

Re: my thoughts
not more than 2 minutes after I posted that, James said, "guess what"

Chuck, Aaron, and Darlene offered to let him stay in their hotel (downtown) with them for free. He could not afford to go if it weren't for the free hotel. Thanks for checking with me first, babe.

Upon further review that is the weekend before the National Underwater Hockey Tournament in Minneapolis. I'll, most likely, be leaving around then to go spend some time with my dad.

I'm sorry that a) you lost your wallet and b) people kept bumping into you. And who knew snow could have an impact on your life in APRIL. Welcome home none the less.
