Trip Day Nine (Con Day 4): In Which More Games Are Played, Love & Hate Go Center Stage, Goodbyes Are Said, And Good Lord, Is There Ever Pie
It is late and I need to bust ass to finish this before midnight. Quick and dirty, folks!
Breakfast: Waffles From Outer Space! Ate too much.
Morning games: Betrayal At House On The Hill, Dog Poker, The Fantasy Trip, The Crazy Game Boardgame Expansion #1: City Pitch
(Luke: Dad got his usual 5 gallons of Butter & Bacon flavored syrup.)
Lunch: Tamalemania, where I ate pork barbacoa tamales and drank horchata.
(Cupcake: Horchata is REALLY good!)
Afternoon Panel: “We Loves It, We Hates It!” Spike and I have been on this panel for years now and it’s always fun whipping the crowd into a frenzy over things geeks hate and love. It was held in an auditorium that seats 2,000 people and was SRO.
Afternoon Other Stuff: Got drinks at Mink’s Cold Drinks, took one last stroll through the Dealer’s Room, said goodbye to many folks.
(Cupcake: I’m going to miss my adventuring homegirls.)
(Brownie: I’m gonna miss Chance.)
The con ended at 5:00 and as always, the Goodbye CritterCon pie feed started up an hour later. They had 100 different types of pies this year and I tried 6 of them. I believe Brownie summed it up best when he said “Holy crap! That’s a lot of pie!”
(Sasha: Whoever thought of Hot Dog Pie, I love you!)
About 7:30, we got on the Bus and started beaming our friends home. By 8:00 the Cross family was heading out of Critter City until next year. We were all pretty tired. And very full of pie.
Sweetie will sort of meander toward New Mexico tonight, then stop at the border. In the morning, we will start the trip home in earnest.
More trip news tomorrow.
