kyrielle will get a kick out of this. The NY Jets (that's a football (American football, not soccer) team) are playing the Indianapolis team (anyone?) this weekend and have been unable to procure nearby hotel rooms due to GenCon happening at the same time. Evidently six months was not enough advance warning for them to work it into their itinerary.
(THURS) Indy's largest 2004 convention starts today. Gen Con is back for its colorful four-day run. Measured by economic standards, the gaming enthusiasts coming into Indianapolis right now by the thousands have sold out the downtown, have forced the New York Jets to the northside to find hotel space for their NFL exhibition game Saturday, and will drop more into the city in direct visitor spending than any other single event this year in Indianapolis. The Indiana Convention & RCA Dome will host some 30,000 attendees who are projected to spend $35,910,000 -- more than the cash spent from the city hosting an NCAA Final Four men's basketball tournament. Gen Con is the quintessential "battleground" for all types of gaming, for all ages. Attendees can participate in card games, board games, roleplaying games, live-action role- playing games, miniatures, computer games, and more. The four days are full of plenty of hobby-related events as well.

No, not me. Ares has it in his left eye. Poor kitty. :( It's all puffy and crusty. It's hard enough to view a cat's sclera when their eyes aren't infected. I've been giving him sulfa drops that I still have from the last time I had it. He hates that. I'm expecting to get bitten sometime before he's better.
