A fairly successful first day at Capricon. All of the guests were delivered to the hotel safe and sound, which was my biggest nightmare. Seriously - my sleep last night (what there was of it, which wasn't much) was full of what-could-go-wrongs. Luckily, I got good weather today, and the traffic between O'Hare and the hotel was decent for most of the trips. I ended up leaving Ol' Chumbucket and Mad Sally standing out at the airport for a half hour, but they were very gracious (and I was very apologetic...). The opening ceremony was good, and I have video which I'll post later after I can pull it off of the camcorder. The taco bar was surprisingly good - much better than I was expecting.
Unfortunately after I got up to the party floor, my knee started to give out on me and I had to come to the room and take some painkillers. That plus the near lack of sleep from last night finished me off, and so now I'm going to bed. I'm looking forward to a lot of really great panels tomorrow!
