August 2007 Entries

Ok so my "last day of air travel" actually ended up being my last TWO days of air travel, and my front row tickets ended up going unused. I got to the Minneapolis airport in plenty of time, boarded the plane no problem. and sat... annnnd sat. After about 25 minutes, they tell us that the captain can't get his window closed and that they're working on it. (note to self, why does our pilot need a window that opens??) Eventually, they take off and the flight goes fairly smoothly, although a lot of people ......

today marks the final day of my air traveling for what should be a very long time. In 6 days, the moving truck comes and hauls all my stuff from SC to MN. It's quite a haul and I'm really looking forward to it. We're driving up over Labor Day Weekend, which means I'll miss Dragon*Con unfortunately, and that's a real bummer... but on the bright side, I'll have GenCon to look forward to, and I've wanted to go there for over 25 years. Hopefully tonights flight won't be awful. I paid to upgrade my seats, ......

Two of my favorite sites on the web are Woot! and Tanga. Both offer really excellent deals on cool stuff. They usually have fairly limited quantities, and the good stuff goes quickly. Tanga tends to carry a lot of boardgames, which appeal to me obviously, but they have other stuff too. Really cool stuff. I recently purchased a rather large remote control pirate ship (and yeah it really floats.) Today, I was really surprised to see 30GB Zunes on sale for $150 on Woot. I imagine they will go quickly, ......

I've long felt there was a special place in hell for American Airlines employees. Now I realize that, at the very least, they won't be alone. Northwest Airlines has managed to earn a special place in my heart as well. The last few weeks, I've been "forced" to fly NWA instead of AA. I say "forced" with a smile because while nobody actually held a gun to my head, I still didn't really have a choice in the matter. When you're booking short notice, you take what's available. So... on one of my recent ......

we managed to sell the shop. That's a HUGE relief. As sad as I am to say goodbye to Reality Check Games... I can honestly say it's being left in good hands. We found a nice young gamer geek, with a gamer geek family. Seriously, I have a good feeling that RCG will be around the next time I roll through Greenville. So... the big move is coming, in just a couple weeks. I can't wait. Minneapolis has some really cool stuff, like the Mall of America. OMG have you seen that place, it's Ginormous!! I think ......

the previously promised details... Yes, I'm staying with Magenic. I love my job and you couldn't ask for a better company to work for. So why the move? I've been living in South Carolina and working for an office in Atlanta for a company based in Minneapolis. I've been traveling nearly 100% and simply put, I'm a bit tired of it. I'm tired of never being home, never seeing friends or family, never really getting a day off... When I wasn't traveling, I was at the shop. If you've ever owned a retail ......

It's official... I'm moving to Minnesota. Should be up there full time by the end of the month.

Selling the game shop (hopefully) or else I'm going to have the best game room ever and dump the rest on ebay.

More details to follow.
