    Sunday, woke up at 11:30. Went to the con and had a hot dog, pasta salad, and fruits. Still felt a little twinge of hunger so went back for a chili dog and diet Coke. Played 4-player game of Trains. And finished the weekend with St. Petersburg. It was 4:00 and the Con Suite was closed. I was sad.

    Overall, the con was well worth the price to me. I bought next year's pass at the $35 advance purchase discount price. A father and son from Nashville had so much fun that they planned to start a gaming group by them. Can't get much more validation than that.

    Saturday, arrived at 10:00 & had banana nut bread, pound cake, brownie, blueberry muffin & diet Coke. Played 5-player game of El Grande & Eminent Domain. It was 12:30 so had 2 hot dogs & diet Coke. Topped it off with chips, carrots & salsa. The salsa was really hot so had to cool it off with pretzels, skittles & carrots. Played another 5-player game of El Grande. It was 2:00 so had pulled pork, cake, chips, 7-layer dip, chili, chocolates & diet Coke. Played 2 games of 11-player Mascarade. Then played 5-hour game of 6-player Eclipse. Filled my between turns down time with chili, hot dog and diet Coke. And again with chili and turkey roll (too full for a sandwich). Game ended at midnight so only had a hot dog, chili & cookies to tide me over. There was a lot more stuff, but I kept things down due to it being my bedtime and I heard that eating near bed time made you fat.
