Tick tock never stops

I became aware of the awful realization that it's only 2 weeks before I leave for Chicago and then for gencon. This has me in a panic because of the ridiculous number of things left undone. For one thing, I've yet to actually book my flight from Chicago to Indianapolis nor my hotel for my post-gencon stay. I'm not sure if I mentioned it before but I decided this year to stay a couple extra days in Indy after gencon ends rather than heading straight home. I was supposed to go to the state fair there last year but ended up missing the opportunity due to 2 consecutive missed flights. Curse you Mahou Sensei Negima! The fair doesn't start this year until the same weekend as gencon so I thought it might be a good opportunity to visit. I've never actually been to a state fair before and I've been regaled with tales of people crawling through a giant colon and other wonders.

The downside is I'll need to spend a bit more money on 2 more days of lodging and I also have to figure out who might be interested in coming along. As you might imagine, plenty of people say they're interested, in theory, but no one has stepped forward to give me an iron clad statement of intent. That makes the entire idea less inviting since I'm pretty sure it won't be as much fun wandering around by myself.

In addition to the logistical issues of travel and rooming, I also have to sort out what we're doing for Killer Breakfast this year. We procrastinated almost the whole year away and only came up with a general working idea a few days ago. Now there's a whole list of things that need to be done in preparation for the event. Add to that the fact that I need to deal with a lot of token sorting for True Dungeon and it starts to look like a bit of a mess. I would be a much happier camper if gencon were 2 months away instead of 2 weeks. The summer con schedule has always been cramped but it's been even more truncated this year. Or at least it feels that way. Maybe it's just that I don't bounce back from these trips and events as quickly as I used to, which makes the next one seem to rush upon me all the quicker.
