I can't properly describe how I feel right now. On one hand, I'm nervous about meeting a ton of people whom I've only known by a silly forum avatar that may or may not describe their personality properly and/or a screen name that I may or may not be able to spell/pronounce. On the other, I'm excited to meet some new people, and go to an event that's as prolific as PAX (even though it's not PAX proper, I can still dream, dammit!)
I've been busy with school (and grinding heroics on WoW, lulz), so I haven't really had much time to write over here lately. I still lurk in IRC occasionally though, and whenever something is linked on twitter in my dtoid column/list I make sure to check it out. So no, I haven't died. Just been less active than my usual inactivity.
See you in Boston, people :)
