Sorry, I always have dibs on Bookstore Guy. Though if we have five in our room this time, we may need to cycle people on the floor.

I was going to make some smart-aleck remark about "sounds like my kind of fun", but then Fell ruined it with that remark about sleeping on the floor.  ::)

More seriously, I would love to go, and I'm still considering it. Realistically, though, I don't think I'll be able to swing it.

There a space on that list for maybe-probably-not? :P

we have 5? holy crud. now I really wish I was driving with you all. especially since I know the game-setting of choice for the ride...

I'll tell my parents to expect an extra body at their place (please note I never said anything about the body being alive).

As for who gets to cuddle with me, don't worry, I'll spread my love around...I'm easy...err...

Even though I live down here, can I join in on the party? :P  I mean, it's not like anyone will actually be sleeping... right?

inorite? I'm in high demand!

It is actually gonna be a pretty busy Con for both Nick and I. We are going to be pimping out our review blog, and we each have novels to pitch. Plus, you know, the cuddling. Don't worry, my wife have approved it with Dan and Nick (but only them).

If you're talking about the Rob I think you are, he and Dan should learn to share.

I'm actually very interested to see how people there react to the review blog. This could be the push we need to get more publishers to give us all their advanced copies.

As long as I can get in on the evil schemes, I'll help push the plot forward!

Hey, why isn't Dan employing you as a TWG reviewer? Splinter faction leader! Kill him! No, torture him.

Poke him with the soft cushion! Confess! Confess! Confess!
