Yet Another Reason to Dislike Unofficial

I'm currently sitting up at 5:13AM waiting for a tow truck to come and remove someone from my parking spot. If you and umpteen-thousand of your closest friends are all going to descend upon Champaign-Urbana, a community known for its craptacular parking situation, for its annual Bacchanalia, I'd appreciate it if a lot more of you would take the train, bus, or other means besides a car to get here. There aren't enough parking spots to handle the crowd, so plan ahead: just because I'm out doing something that doesn't involve ethanol does not give you the right to take my parking spot. When your car ends up in the impound lot, you'll get no sympathy from my bleary-eyed self.

Note: Edited to correct early-morning grammar.

You could always take the bus, though if it was like Friday afternoon, it would smell like stale beer.

I took the bus home from work and got the stale beer smell full-on, but since the after LARP group dinner is at either Perkins or Steak 'n' Shake, neither of which have bus service in the small hours of the morning, driving was required.
