We might have mentioned it already, but we’re heading to the Austin Film Festival next week. If you called and nobody answered the phone, it’s probably because we’re all running around in circles asking each other in a panic whether we packed all the audiovisual cables we need, or whether we just said we were going to pack them, and if we didn’t pack them yet, oh god where could they be. You know, that sort of thing.

Here’s a quick look at the down-to-the-wire packing we were doing yesterday:

Crap, sorry. That’s actually our picture of the new FIREFLY board game, which we’re too busy to play but which we took a picture of so we could get Nathan Fillion’s attention on Twitter. Spoiler alert: It didn’t work.

Anyway, here’s the pic of the pack:
