I guess i take for granted what my somewhat cavalier approach to lifestyle has on my body from time to time; the traveling, the irregular food habits, all those time-zones and the booze-fueled meetings which seem to litter the bizdev side of the games industry.
Anyway, I've kind of kick-started myself in time for a few days away at Gamescom, which is a show/conference in Germany and replaces what has, for five years, been an annual jaunt to Leipzig for a similar event. I have many fond memories of great trips over there, by train, plane and car - which we always did via Prague. We visited Colditz, odd places in Czech, all-nighters in Leipzig/Prague, tried to steal Enigma machines from a gothic absinthe bar - and experienced all manner of oddness when Bryan and Craig joined for trips.
I don't plan anything outrageous this time, maybe a few beers on Tuesday night and the Nordic party on Wednesday where a lot of friends will be. Two very busy days Weds & Thurs (before a late flight back) will make sure I'm not out of control - which is a good thing since the day after I get back, the family leaves for two weeks of heat (and no doubt humidity) on the west coast of Florida.
