Yesterday was a true Gencon day. Two hours walking the exhibit hall, only managing to take in a fraction of it in the process. All afternoon at a CCG tournament. Later that night, in the board game room, untold hours playing a game that would be impossible to afford otherwise until 3:30 a.m. Whatever else, I’m gettin’ my money’s worth. Today: the costume show.
Downtown Indianapolis is a place that’s trying very hard to be slicker and hipper than a city in the middle of, well, Indiana. They are partially succeeding, but this is the logo on their street banners: “Indianapolis: Amazingly Always New.” Is it just me or shouldn’t ‘amazingly’ and ‘always’ be the other way around?
