After I whined about a game I was supposed to play in at Origins that didn't run, I learned the GM actually had a really good reason for his absence (a horrible airport experience that prevented him from arriving at Origins at all). Being a stand-up guy, he apologized publicly for it on his blog. I feel like a bit of a heel now, so I want to apologize for complaining since airline issues are obviously not the GM's fault. I've had them myself. I know what they're like. Now I'm just sorry the GM didn't get to make it to Origins at all. Turns out I had a better experience than he did. I should really count my blessings instead of grumbling.
