I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'wouldn't it be much worse if life *were* fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them?' So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe. – M. Cole
Well, we’re home from GenCon. A very nice vacation and I’m exhausted. Here are some more photos of what we saw and did out in Indianapolis.

Excellent perfumes and scents: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Just got a few of the RPG line ones in the imp ear size. Favorite so far is a blend of Ranger (foresty) and Orc (leathery). I find the descriptions very accurate. The Bow and Crown of Conquest in the Sin and Salvation line is also good, especially for a man. (you’ll have to scroll down a bit).
