I booked my room for FC next year. For the first time I will not be rooming with Al and Dex. We opted for 2 king rooms at the Marriott since the doubles had sold out and we didn't feel like being at the Hitlon. Anybody want to share a bed with a drunk yiffy bear? *grins* I'm starting to think that this con has finally run its course with me. It has been one of my favorites and I have attended every year since 2004 with the exception of one year when we did the Panama cruise. It's just becoming a chore to book the hotel as well as just becoming too damn expensive. The hotels are 6 of one, half a dozen of the other. You want the Hitlon? The walk back and forth to con space gets old VERY quickly. You want the Marriott? Good luck finding reasonable parking close by and enjoy the waits for elevators. Meh. Everyone seems to be flocking to BLFC just like they flocked to FC when CF started to run its course. Perhaps there is also a fair amount of myself getting older. Cons are great and I love to hang out and party, but there is also a lot to see and do in the rest of the world. Times change. I will change with them.
