In other news, the Volunteer Party went pretty well. We had a pretty good turnout even though the original e-mail notice apparently got whacked by a lot of folks' anti-virus software (how'd that virus get into a gmail account anyway?) and next year we'll just plan a little further ahead so we'll be able to tell the volunteers where & when it'll be before the end of the convention. I could whine about the reservation snafu that put us into two widely separated rooms instead of the adjoining rooms we thought we had, but it all worked out okay so I won't bother.
Spent Sunday doing a whole lot of nothing all day until the evening when phoenixalpha and I went to drop Scott off at the Sprawl and then floundered around East Bloomington looking for the new Cub. Once we found it we wished we hadn't; the layout is weird and there aren't any self-checkout lanes to redeem it, unlike the one in Crystal. Got home, unpacked groceries, went to bed and was unable to sleep until 0130. Dammit.
Addendum: In case you were wondering how the HALO session Friday night went, well, as usual I got my head handed to me. People are beginning to comment on the fact that although I am probably the worst HALO player on staff I nonetheless enjoy playing the game in groups quite a bit. I don't think it's weird at all. When there're five or six people in play (especially if we're using Juggernaut rules) things get pretty interesting, especially on a big map. In addition to the normal fun, we also introduced jamestrainor to the house rules concerning vehicles in Slayer: first person to climb aboard a vehicle becomes a target for everybody else, and when you have five other people unloading on you, the armor on a Wraith isn't nearly thick enough. ^^
