OK, so is anyone else sitting at their desk or respective place of work today having a very hard time concentrating?

I have squad values, and points for miniatures pieces floating through my heads. Tactics and counter-tactics. Budget numbers to constantly remind myself to not spend TOO much money in the dealer hall. Lists of things I still want to get done tonight before we head out tomorrow.

And the worst part is, I have to come to work tomorrow morning first too! I'm going to be completely useless to my company tomorrow morning, lol.

LOL, if i didnt hate the forthcoming 11-12 hour drive i would be a bit more excited. Once we reach Indy, the jumpies will set in more. I am not really stressing much since i honestly dont know how much i will get to play. I am just hoping i get to do the WoWM demo tourney more than anything. Most of my playing will be league, so i am just looking forward to the fun.

Oh, snap, I had forgot about that. If you find out When/Where that's going to be, would you let me know? I'd like to check it out as well.

That goes double for me. If its as good as I've been hearing, well, let's just say I've been on the path to the darkside that is WoW for about the last three months. :lol:

I am in the same boat as you, Aaron. The weekend really snuck up on me fast, and now I am just ready to go. It's basically the one week that I get really excited about all year.

Well this is my last post before I leave. Look forward to seeing all of you at GenCon in a couple of days. It's going to be a blast!!!

Everybody be careful making your way to Indy.

Dean, I guess you guys left this morning. I just hope you make it there by Thursday. :P

I have a hard time concentrating every day cause I'm so friggin bored ;)

Seriously though, the main thing going through my brain is "how the heck and I going to fit in everything I want to do?" With SWM, SWPocket Models, SW RPG, and Heroclix its gonna be a really busy weekend, lol. And I still am on the edge of whether I should do the Masters or not, it sounds like a lot of fun and I know already I won't get anywhere near the much desired Top 8 so I might just do it for the fun. Field a squadron of Ewoks or something and watch my opponent groan as I out activate him by 15 pieces, lol. But then there is a side of me that is super-competitive that I rarely let out and am tempted to go with it, yet going with that means if I lose I won't be all that happy and I'd rather play in good spirits but....ugh, as you can see a mental dilema :?

Jitters, would not being able to get to sleep and then when you are asleep you are dreaming, repeat dreaming, about squads and point values count? Sunday night was not a good night.

I'll be looking for you Dean to get that shirt.
