It's past two A.M. here, so I'm going to keep this short. But there will be more tomorrow, I promise.
I will open with this: thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. I am completely overwhelmed by your support. You will find out exactly how overwhelmed on Monday when the numbers come out, but trust me when I say they're stunning. They certainly stunned me.
When it was time to enter the main hall for the CCP Presents keynote, I was a nervous wreck. It's a little known fact that you have two choices of how to watch the keynotes at Fanfest. You can enter the main hall where drinks are (technically) not allowed. Hint: this is why you see those nifty EVE Online flasks from time to time. Or you can enter the side hall and watch the keynote on a video monitor... and you can bring your booze with you. Because of something that had happened earlier in the day, the Rote Kapelle guys wanted to watch in the booze room.
I stuck with the main hall. I knew however the results came out, I would get emotional. And I didn't necessarily want to do that in front of my alliance mates. ;-) And get emotional I did. Particularly when the Tweets started coming in. I apologize for not responding to them, but wireless in Harpa was a bit overwhelmed by 2000 people trying to use it. My access to the Internet was intermittent or missing until about 15 minutes ago when I got back to my hotel.
Tonight, I am alternating between very happy, very humbled, and quite frankly, a little terrified. What have I DONE?!
It'll be real tomorrow. For now, I'm going to bed. Again, thanks to all of you. I will keep my promises, and if I don't you know where I will be on May 1 of next year and you have my permission to come and kick my ass. More, including a full recap of the day, in the morning.
