|Just roll with it...|
I'm not even pretending to be fair about this as I've gone on and on about the North Texas RPG Con. I seem to have developed a love/hate relationship with the Big G. There are a few reasons for this:
1. I can't seem to afford it - I went to Origins when it was in San Jose because I was living there at the time and other cons were either affordable or I had a few generous friends to whom I will be eternally grateful for helping me (in some cases 100%) foot the bill (yes, I'm talking about you, Wayne). But GenCon always seemed juuuust out of my reach, financially.
2. I love my wife, but she seems to take a dim view of my hobby (nothing to do with the anti-Christian thing, she just thinks I'm too obsessed with it). So I feel that going to one con a year is about as far as I can push it.
3. It's in Indy (or Milwaukee before that). Taking a plane to a convention used to be too much for me (financially and otherwise). Most of the conventions I've been to have been at the most 4 hours away.
Anyway, there it is. If I sound a bit curmudgeonly (or worse, whiny) I apologize. I'm sure if I ever go I'd probably have a blast but I don't see it happening in my lifetime. C'est la vie.
