Planning vs. packing
Research question: Can I bring a carload of party gear and a passenger to Baycon? I'm trying to figure out how much space the coolers and other stuff will take up, so in May I'll be prepared.

I'm going to pack as many things in bags as I can. Hoping to have the back third of my cargo space filled with coolers, boxes, and most of the rigid bulky things. Then the forwards two-thirds will have the cart and all the bags.

Graph paper
Am I being lazy if I print out a page from https://incompetech.com/graphpaper/plain/ instead of getting up and finding our graph paper?

Halloween 2017
Report for this year. We had 53 goblins -- three of them after 9 o'clock!

We gave away jumbo Pixy Stix, and a variety of prizes in the prize bin. Some large coffee-table photo books, a few other children's books, stuffed monkeys, bottles of water, glow sticks, bouncing rubber eyeballs, plastic cockroaches...

We had a few groups sing pumpkin carols, we did the penny-on-the-forehead trick and penny tic-tac-toe, a few draw-on-a-notepad-on-your head, and we only did the stick trick once.

A few kids came prepared. We didn't seem to have as many teenagers. The neighbors that have the birthday party didn't get as many guests either -- two of their sons were still at work.
