On Breakout

Actually, a bit of a P.S. to that last entry, though it's not really related. On the topic of RPG cons, there's like...a little less than four weeks until the Breakout RPG con in Toronto. I hadn't known about the con before, but a few months back at Metatopia I met the conrunners, and ever since the thing got on my radar, it has been looking amazing. I'd really like to go, and weirdly I feel like I'm in a position to do so now, at least time-wise, but I really don't think I can justify the expense, particularly without a job. I like to think this is me being responsible, instead of me caving to anxiety. But I just wanted to note it, I guess, because given the time and the money, I'd go in a heartbeat. The guest and attendance lists are just stupendous; all kinds of people that I really like or would really like to meet. The runners are the kind of people I like and into the kind of gaming that I like, and I also think it would be fun to finally hang with some Canadian gamers on their turf for once. :) It's a tough call. I really want to go, but I think skipping this one is probably the right decision for me at this particular time in my life. If I could engineer my next situation exactly to my specs, it would mean sufficient extra money and time for gaming cons, but that's basically just "win the lottery" plans, so I don't tend to spend too much time thinking about it. Still. Would be so great to just head up to Toronto for a weekend of awesome gaming and gaming peeps.

Anyway. Just thought that bore mentioning. If I get super risky in the next few weeks then maybe I'll end up going for it, but for now, it's just a nice thing to think about, and I'm glad it's happening.
