I am going to Americaland to wander around a video games convention in a kilt. I will be in Boston from Wednesday 9th to Wednesday 16th, and will be attending all three days of PAX East at the weekend.
This will only be the third time I’ve ever left the dear old British Isles — the first was a searing trip to Bulgaria’s mega-resort Slanchev Briag (“Sunny Beach”), and the second was a bitterly cold stay in Iceland’s Reykjavik (Baldur’s Gate eat your heart out — Cone of Cold ain’t got nothing on Icelandic wind).
Now, having confirmed that I am, in fact, not carrying leprosy, and have never taken part in genocide (and paid $14 for the privilege), I should be able to get through customs across the pond.
But this means I’ll probably have no Internet access, so if you have any queries about the Arthstone I won’t be able to respond with “it’s a powerful artefact” (at least in a timely manner).
So… Don’t trash the place while I’m gone.
