The Queue: This is fine.

Hi there, welcome to the BlizzCon hype train. I would be your conductor, but I’m afraid I need to go drive to an abandoned parking lot and let loose a long scream for about 20 minutes, then drive back to my house, breathless, and try to pretend to be a functional adult before going trick or treating all night in the rain.

I’m not sure who decided to schedule BlizzCon for the day after Halloween this year, but they are not my favorite person right now.

The Queue: I’m not stressed, you’re stressed

If you’ve never had a small kid you may not know the incredible breadth of activities that goes on during Halloween. We’ve gone to the pumpkin patch, we had events with candy in the trunk of our car, we had to bake some gross-looking food for Girl Scouts, and this weekend we’re going to the train museum’s Halloween event, because why not!

The good thing is, most of this was planned in advance, so we have all our ducks in a row. Yes, being able to plan things in advance and get organized really helps things move more smoothly when everything else is chaos. Things like schedules are nice to have, for instance. Yep, scheduling things is good. Always useful to have a schedule.

Let me just reschedule all the BlizzCon planning meetings we missed over the past 2 weeks now that the schedule is finally out and let’s get to Queuein’.

The Queue: Would you look at the time.

Every week, I come into the Queue with high hopes, intending to make a really great pun or have some kind of special insight. And then, after I read the comments, one of you inevitably mentions that we’re getting closer and closer to BlizzCon. This week was no different, and now I need to write this Queue while I write more things in my day planner and lie on the floor.

Two weeks.

Here, enjoy this Queue while I go scream into a dress like Amy Adams.
