E’s 2012 GenCon Schedule

Need to find E at GenCon? Participating in speed dating or other geek dating events? Want to knit with her? Here’s your stalking info, right here. First of all, I’d like to thank my friend Josh for his house/petsitting services. I already miss my furry children, but I know you’re being a great substitute parent.

Getting in Touch

The best way to get in touch with me is to send me a tweet. I obsessively check my phone, so I’ll reply as soon as I’m able. If you are among the lucky folks to have my cell number, feel free to text.

ThinkGeek Freebies

I will have about $100 of free ThinkGeek loot to give away every day. All you need to do to receive a piece of loot is come find me and ask for one. Selection may vary from day to day, but everything is geeky and awesome.


Wednesday Evening

E arrives in Indy, quite late, and may be found in the lobby of the JW Marriott until which time she cannot remain conscious and must retire to her room for snoozing.
