    I'm absolutely serious here. A lot of people overestimate their ability to drink in the hot desert when they are much more dehydrated than they realize. Several of the drunken/passed out/etc issues could have been much more easily and pleasantly resolved with a phone call to your buddies cell phone or a quick trip to your room.

    I'm not asking you to violate your privacy, this info won't come out of your pocket unless you are found incoherent.
    How bout getting a friend to write with a Sharpie your contact information on your chest? A temporary meat-tag. :D

    Gah, and you're local up here too (how embarassing).

    Tuesday night: 4 hours
    Wednesday night: none
    Thursday night: 4 hours
    Friday night: 5 hours
    Saturday night: none
    Sunday night: 10 hours (to much tequila)

    So during con, a total of 5 hours. If you include pre and post events, quite a bit longer.

    I got some sleep.. usually 5 hours from 5/6-10 most mornings.
    The last day I was there, after the con I got 2 hours sleep thanks
    to the airlines.

    When I finally got home I crashed and slept 15 hours straight. I havent
    done that in a long time.

    Yeah, I didnt carry anything with me at that time becuase I intended on being in and out of the pools. Of course, I didn't intend on getting -that- plastered.

    I'll have to think up something for next year. Maybe a ziplock bag of some basic ID... or something...


    OHH OHH pick me ....... how about NOT drinking *quite* that much??? I mean.. I know it's a long shot.. but when you are trying to figure out a way to carry something around so that WHEN you get alcohol poisioning you don't die for any given reason... my 2 centavos

    I did the same thing. I think I got 10 actual hours of sleep the whole week, and it wasnt because I didnt try. I called in sick today, and got my boss to add two days vacation so Im going to "recover" the rest of the week.

    I got shit for sleep the 4 days I was there because my bed utterly sucked ass. Worst bed I've ever had at the AP.

    I hope with the remodeling they plan on buying some beds made in this millenium.

    Basically my night was sleep an hour, wake up in pain, roll over out of the middle of the bed, repeat. It's why by Sunday I looked like death warmed over and hungover all to fuck, even though I didn't drink at all the duration of con.

    sucked.

    Yes, your mannerisms were very well observed. You never did look like you were having any fun here. I thought you'd rather be with the Sergeant Major marching up and down the square.

    Oh, carrying some sort of id around with you might be a good idea, because it was hard to get you tell us anything about who you were and whatnot.

    uuummm yeah... I will say "no worries" because every year it happens.. BUT!! the next time I have to ask you to stop licking me... I will have to have you beaten... sorry, but thats just the way it is... oh yeah.. and next year I will be giving lessons on how to and how NOT TO throw people into the pool (i.e. reaching up from the pool and grabbing anothers foot to pull that foot forward= BAD!!!)

    other than that... it was all good :D

    I generally move to a 48 hour day.

    I think I slept from 3-8am just about every day, but there were exceptions like wednsday which was 5-8am.

    Our arrival on Tuesday was 44 hours of conciousness by the time I finally slept.

    Then on our trip back, it was getting up Sunday at 9, doing con, leaving the hotel at 8pm and driving 24 hours and finally sleeping after 40 hours.
