Woo, top ten.
Uh, what have I got? Booked the flight, ready to go on hotel reservations, will chip in the needful for prom.
Also, I'm around on Monday since I don't fly out until Tuesday, so if anyone wants extra showing-off-the-city-to-furriners detail, I'm a captive audience.
There, actual content. Who knew?
unless the president is actually on the train and I choose to treat him like a fire hydrant.
I would pay good money to see this.
I've slept with Amych, Madrigal, ita and msbelle.
Also, probably can't go to the F2F, as I simply couldn't plan on going any further in advance than about four days. Shit's just gonna be too crazy here.
I'm taking Thursday through Monday off from work, if people want company for Monday activities.
I've slept with Amych, Madrigal, ita and msbelle. Jealous?
Well, I was not quite awake watching cartoons in pajamas with a roomful of Buffistas in LA, does that count?
Shiny new thread. Guess it is time to look at reservations.
Also stunned that JZ & Hec are honeymooning at the F2F.
As she notes, we'll slip over on Saturday afternoon for Prom and head back to NOLA on Sunday. It was just intolerable thinking about everybody else meeting Lizard and Holli.
I'm so (selfishly) happy that you and JZ are coming, David. Woo!
I'll be bussing in from Lexington to the DC Greyhound station; I'll have better details later, but as of now I plan to come in Thursday evening and leave Sunday afternoon (by plane to Los Angeles. If things work out properly)--can someone pick me up at the bus station?
SA, I should be able to do that.
And, yay, Hec and JZ!
This will have to be edited tomorrow with the magic 800# [please wait for it, even though the main # IS in here, please?], because I don't have it yet, but I just really want this to be towards the top of the thread:
