Well Fraser is off to bgg.con without mobile phone and with vague noises about MAYBE using my eee pc to log in at some stage, probably not from Dallas.

So here is what I know of his trip. I've left posting open so if you find him somewhere, feel free to add it and aid me in my stalking.

He got to the airport OK and made it into the Qantas lounge.

(This is a bit of a cheat ... he google talked me from there too ...)

Apparently, he's a celebrity...

Quote:
One of the first celebrities we found was Fraser, the spouse of OMGMelissa, just off the plane from Australia.
Edit: Confirmation here

He posted to a mailing list we are both on.

(OK, he also sent me a brief email too).

A possible sighting (can't zoom in to check) http://www.flickr.com/photos/debbieohi/3047410185/in/set-721...

I don't think it's him, but it's near enough to fool the children.

Edit: He may be here too. Could there really be two orange shirts like that in the world? http://www.flickr.com/photos/debbieohi/3047432765/in/set-721...

Edit: Confirmed. Chatting with Ryan. http://www.flickr.com/photos/debbieohi/3047490511/in/set-721...

Edit: Still there. http://www.flickr.com/photos/debbieohi/3048329682/in/set-721...

Wish I was stalking Aldie. That would be easier.

He had barbecue for dinner tonight with the werewolf players. This game seems to fit well.

(Thanks to my spy who messaged me to let me know)

He played - and possibly won - San Marco

(He chatted with me and mentioned some other games but they don't count if I can't find a reference to them online)

He played this.

We own - but have never played - Wabash Cannonball. Despite that, I was very VERY tempted to buy Chicago Express at OMGESSEN. It is just so pretty. (Edit: Also, I played and enjoyed it!)

He's in the background here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/chrisbrooks/3049585173/in/set-7...

Edit: And in the foreground here - evidently he managed to catch up with David Fair http://www.flickr.com/photos/chrisbrooks/3050424780/in/set-7... (nice to see the bag of caramello koalas there too)

Is it still called "being in drag" if it doesn't involve a frock?
