Got a call yesterday from some friends, apparently I’m now tagging along to work a pony convention this weekend. On the plus side it’s in Austin, which I have always wanted to see more of. I probably won’t get to see much of it - but hey - optimism!
It’s time to flush your stereotypes down the drain.
Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent.
So my plans for the weekend have changed and I get to stay at home instead of chasing my tail for the second weekend in a row. With San Japan looming at the end of next week it would have made three consecutive weekends of chaos.
Taking a day or two easy, working on personal projects, recovering from allergies and slowly pondering the mysteries of packing for con sounds like a great plan right now.
Well I am home again - and I have lots to do. I also have some form of crud that may or may not be from my nephew. So Lissa is going back to bed for now.
It also appears I passed the 250 follower mark while I was out of town. I will try to get the reward picture done that I owed for 200 followers finished at some point. After my commissions, family projects, world cup drawings, and con prep. And my nap. The nap right now is very important.
So I’ve managed to destroy my third suit case hauling my convention gear around. Best guess is that it finally buckled under all the weight and abuse I put it through and one of the side supports snapped. I’ve got about a month to figure out a replacement.
I’m debating about getting some hard case luggage but have no idea what a good price for that sort of thing would be. Also not sure I really want to invest that much in luggage since I’m sort of debating about quitting conventions sometime in the foreseeable future.
