Damn It, I Can’t Make It to GaymerX2

I’m sad to say that for various reasons, including ones involving my personal (i.e., non-public) schedule, I’m just not going to be able to make it to GaymerX2, where I had been scheduled to be a Boss of Honor.
This makes me very sad, because, one, I was really looking forward to it, and two, everyone who will be there is certain to be having a whole bunch of fun and I won’t be there to have it with them. But some things you just can’t avoid, and this is one of them.
Before anyone asks, no, this announcement is unrelated to this bit of news. This was something else entirely, and I had been in communication with the GaymerX2 folks about it for a while. Tried to make it work, and sadly, just couldn’t. The GaymerX2 people were very cool during the whole situation, however, and I thank them for it.
Sorry to everyone who was looking forward to seeing me at GaymerX2 this year. If it means anything, I hope to be in the Bay Area for a public event at some point this year — perhaps on tour, or at another event if not. Either way, I’ll hopefully see you all before the end of the year.
And for those who are wondering: Why, yes, I totally encourage you to show up for GaymerX2, even though I will not be able to attend. It’ll still be a ton of fun. And that’s a lot of fun to be had.
We’re just too fabulous for you. Admit it.
This sounds very cool. I’ve been a gamer since the early 70s (the heyday of the ‘analog game’) and have made the digital transformation rather spiffily. Would love to go to something like this. Too bad you can’t, John. There’s always next year, eh?
Didn’t read that bit about this being the last of its format (in Frisco). Someone has to pick up the torch.
GaymerX looks so fun!
I forgot about this one – a friend of mine went last year and said it was really cool. Also, that Intercontinental is honestly one of my favorite hotels of all time: really cool rooms. I would totally go but I’ll be at the Odyssey Writing Workshop. So… I’m not completely crushed… just kinda… wishing I could have it all! ; )
I hope lots of people attend, because I want more local events like that one. It sucks that having Cons in SF is such a costly hassle. The city should do stuff to encourage these kinds of events.
I only recently started reading this blog and I honestly enjoy it. But I’m sure I’ll see ya at some other thing, some other time. Good luck wherever your schedule takes you!
I love the Intercontinental. Completely apropos of nothing: I’ve thrown up in those giant plant pots they have out front. :)
Oh nooooo! I was just saying that you were the thing I was most excited about at the convention this year! Super sad you won’t be there!
Magnificent beat ! Iwish to apprentice at the same time as
