By The Numbers - Horror Hound Weekend

This weekend was a lot of things, and most have them have been said in Eric and Casey's blogs, so I decided to do a comprehensive breakdown of just what Horror Hound meant to me from a numerical standpoint. Keep in mind, these are approximations with an over/under of 6 or so beers.

5 - The hour at which I awoke to turn over the new site.
0 - The number of delays I had on the way to Indy (this becomes important later).
1 - The number of times I nearly shit my pants when Casey, clad in a pink shirt, snuck up on me in the airport.
6 - My approximate arrival time at the convention.
7 - My approximate beer-drinking kickoff
