Portland, the GR Summit, and yet more travel

I started to write about my visit to Portland but it turned out to be a little more emotionally taxing than I thought it was going to be. Took me a while to get back to it.

Being back in my mom’s house is always hard for me. I love my mom but I can’t [...]

Home, Exhausted, Unsettled

Got home this afternoon and promptly fell into bed for a few hours. I just had to shut down and get some solid sleep. I’m sure my physical exhaustion is partly from the stress, the unpredictability, in addition to the driving, sleeping in the Yuma heat on an old pull-out sofa with my mom… just [...]

Procrastination by way of rant

I’m getting ready for the annual Green Ronin Summit in just under a month and have a to-do list that started at three legal pages long (both personal and business-related). Needless to say, it’s going to be a challenge to blog very much. I broke off from GR business today when Kate got home from [...]

Another trip

Grand Canyon Originally uploaded by Nikchick.

We were in Las Vegas the last four days to prepare for and attend the Diamond/Alliance Open House, which was being held at Bally’s this year. Because we were traveling light and didn’t send out our usual full convention display our set-up took an amazingly short amount of [...]

Feels like midnight

We’re reaching that time of the year when the days are growing ever shorter and my energy level crashes to match. A couple of nights this week I stayed up late (or got poor sleep) but surprised myself by staying up ridiculously late last night. An after-work dinner with visiting GAMA dignitaries turned into an [...]

Finland Sunrise

Finland Sunrise Originally uploaded by Nikchick.

Finland sure was beautiful.

I’m slowly but surely getting some of my Finland photos up online.

My Welcome Home

I guess I didn’t do a very good job of reporting in regularly from GenCon. I recovered from staying out too late after the Diana Jones Awards and was a good girl every other night, going back to my room to run credit card receipts instead of hitting the industry parties and getting enough sleep [...]

GenCon First Day

Green Ronin had a pretty good day today as the hall opened but the day had to start very early as we had to get into the hall at the crack of dawn to finish the massive set-up that still needed to be done. With so many of us unable to arrive before last night, [...]

Ropecon ended

Hanged zombie Originally uploaded by mrksaari.

I did not take this photo. I did not even see Hanged Zombie in person. But this excellent photo, of this excellent costume, taken at the honest to god live action Rock Paper Scissors tournament at Ropecon (and subtitled “Hanged zombie is quite unhappy after losing rock-paper-scissors battle.”) [...]

Finland: Days 2-4

Finland has been a whirlwind of activity so far. I’ve been taking a lot of photos and video but I can’t upload them from here so I’ll have to do a more thorough reporting when I get back. So fat we have experienced Suomenlinna, Finnish karaoke, miliatary museums, the National Museum of Finland, The Finnish [...]
