GenCon! Nothing says GenCon like butt crack and gamers funk
During one of the gaming events this year at GenCon 2012, held in Indianapolis, Indiana...I texted one of my Dungeons and Dragons buddy with..."Nothing says GenCon like Butt Crack, and Gamers Funk!"
Don't get me wrong...I love these guys. I love them and I tell them, buy a bar of soap for God's sake. For example, my boss...who isn't a gamer, said one of the micro breweries in town told her they had been slammed with business from the GenCon community this year. They hadn't been expecting it so it was a pleasant increase in business. Next year though, they want to see if they can find an R2D2 room deoderizer before the gamers arrive. They said they were incredibly fun, polite and nice people...but, hey, whew...the odor.
Yeah, no kidding. Funny thing is...we all know it happens. I am not sure at which point our sense of smell leaves us and we suddenly think, hey - I smell ok - right? I mean, I bathed yesterday...I am still good, right? Nobody has leaned into me and sniffed and said, "Is that you? Or. is that me?"
I am voting for you, Mr. Stinky!
That about covers the gamers funk, since I can't picture that here I had to write about it. The other...well, the pictures pretty much speak for themselves. The one big question I have is...how do you not feel a draft? I was cold, wearing a sweater half the time...it's August in Indiana and its hot outside, in the convention center, freezing my proverbial......proverbs off. How is that butt crevice not getting wind chapped? Can't you feel that?
The only time I have ever thought butt crack might look sexy is if it were on Angelina Jolie. Or, perhaps a lacy thong on some attractive woman. Which leaves me out. I am the one who writes about the exposed butt crack, not the one with the exposed butt crack.
To migrate away from the topic at hand for a moment...the gaming was awesome this year. I only had one major flub and it was frigging Star Wars again. I swear on my left knee cap by all that is holy that I will never play another game of Star Wars, I don't care what version it is. And, not even if Will Wheaton was playing as the DM. I swear it. The DND sets...try a little Giants...It was the frost giants - we ruled! And, then the Fire Giants...we died. We kicked butt until we died though! That is part of the game though, right?
GenCon is my favorite week of the year. I live in Indy so I get a room downtown so I don't have to go home to sleep. It's good though because I am gaming until 1 - 2 AM and then the writing seminars start at 8A. I only made it out of bed one morning for the 8A seminars. I get to write this event off for the most part on my taxes because I am a writer and I do spend about 12-14 hours during the week in the seminars. The seminars themselves are free. Generally speaking, they include quite a bit less gamers funk and butt crack. So, you can add that as a extra plus!
