I am currently sitting at the Hilton East Brunswick, awaiting the beginning of Dexcon’s opening ceremonies.
Though I’ve been here many times now (and at several different hotels over the years), this year is slightly different. I’ve donated prizes both to their opening ceremonies and to their prize pool (the latter will arrive on Friday morning). It’s also the first time in awhile that I could not get all the days off, so right after this I have to run off to work. Ah well…
It should be an interesting weekend, as I’ve decided to bring my HP notebook over here and actually use it, much like I did at State of Play last October.
Of course, there’s also that thing about work again. As I was leaving for here, there was a problem that may need my presence later on in the night. *sigh* Typical.
Wish me luck; I’ll send an update of sorts probably on Friday, as I will not make it back here on Thursday.
EDIT – For the last (and most expensive) item I had donated, I was asked to come up to do the draw. Of course, it took three pulls before someone hit, since you have to be in the room when the number is called. Given this week, I was not entirely surprised. *rolling eyes*
