Elfink & Dorf

Brasse -- 2007-03-10 14:49:26

As mentioned just before I dropped off the face of the earth a week ago, the Game Developer's Conference ran from March 5th to 9th. I have a whole lot to write about that time, including plenty of facts, peppered with supposition and unsolicited opinion, but first...

WARNING: sappy, smarmy alert

As GDC was held in San Francisco, I took advantage of the location to sponge freeload visit Wren and her family.
This involved commuting to the conference, and that deserves its own story and comic.

Wren is my best friend, but we operate on completely different internal schedules, and this always makes things interesting when we hang out together. We may as well be different species, but it is the curious blend of similarities and contrasts, agreements and conflicts that keeps our friendship interesting. She is SUCH an Elfink, and I am most definitely a Dwarf.

As my stay comes to an end, it brings into focus how much of my inspiration and drive arise from the input, poking, prodding, encouragement and constant challenge of the Elfink. Not quite sure what she gets in return, heh.

Thank you, Wren.

I still have one more night to drink her under the table, and we have a goodly quantity of red wine to hand for that.


See you all Monday, when my serious writing and coverage of GDC begins!

Ah, the skewed perceptions of the overly stout and hairy! I recall only one incident where you actually drunk me under the table (or under any furniture, for that matter!), and that was some sort of aberration. Maybe the moon was in a particularly bizarre phase for purple-haired elfinks or something.

Still, I am so very happy that I live near where the G.D.C. was held, and so could have your company before and after your very long days. I know how hard you worked, and I can't wait to see your news, reviews, opinions and stuff.

Thank you for putting me in your comics. It always brings such a smile to my face, and gives me a special feeling of honor and, well, specialness. One could not hope for a better friend, differences, similarities and all.

happy DAY,

wren
