Seeing as how I have a job I think I'm going to try as well. Any chance of us getting a group discount?

Oh, and is there a go-cart track nearby? =P

why?

I would tell you, but I slept through that bit. I think SP did too.

They all treated the gokarts like bumper cars. PD got wedged under the safety rails when XX hit him.

Eclipse "accidently" hit the gas instead of the break and crashed into me at full speed. After that i don't remember too much.

we DEFINITELY need to do that again. But with hood-mounted paintball guns this time. woot!

um... and now you're banned from Las Vegas?

The other Convention goers are kind of afraid of us. It might have been how we looked down our noses at any theories they tried to come up with. Or why we knew way too much about everything. Or that only four of us were at the poker game and Two of us made it to the final table. (though the one of us who had the most experience lost first) or that emma was part of our group.

09-11-2009, 08:30 AM
or that emma was part of our group.
yes, I think that would freak out even the most stalwart of fans from other sites...

ShadowbaneX
09-11-2009, 10:55 AM
heh, I remember driving that course so well that no one could get around me, even though my fat ass slowed the cart so much that I was the slowest of the group...I guess that makes me Bowser. =D

It was only when Tam, who was behind me, was told by one of the guys at the track to ram me that I was actually taken out and then everyone got around me...yeah, we so need to do that again.

Gilshalos Sedai
09-11-2009, 01:15 PM
No, we were banned from the go-kart track, then.

XX and SP got us banned from the rest of Vegas. Or at least from the Star Trek Experience. It is a coincidence it's now closed? I think not.

09-11-2009, 01:58 PM

Hopper, you can list yourself as a volunteer when you prereg! Once our volunteer coordinator knows where she will need people, she will contact you to work something out. :)

we were all moving at the speed of balefire, the crash happened in a flash, and my hitting the breaks (and yes, i did hit the breaks :p, i swear heh) was as effective as be'lal yelling "no" to moiraine.

and it also happened on a curve. i still have perfect sudden recalls of that moment. it was "left-right-left-riAAHHHH!!!" kind of like an orgasm... there was a lot of movement and thrashing, a sudden impact, screaming and hollering... in the end, i was thrown clear, and i couldn't for the life of me tell you how it happened. it's a mystery.

I have been beckoned by my Aes Sedai, my Angel, my Beauty and my officially adopted TL daughter. It appears that I must make every effort to attend. How-some-ever you must all be willing to do everything in your power to convince my 'Bride' that I did nothing wrong no matter what happens!!!

Frenzy
11-16-2009, 01:54 PM
What did your Bride think of your last "gift" to me? That might convince her of the gravity of the event. :p

pops taer
11-16-2009, 02:59 PM
She helped me search for different items to use. I finally had to settle for whatever I could find, cuz I couldn't get anyone to make me a special shirt.

P. S. You prolly have started something again. Why not post a pic!!!

Zaela Sedai
11-16-2009, 06:33 PM
I have devious plans in mind :devil

Pops you MUST be there if I am MUST I SAY!

Zae, are you really going?!

Zaela Sedai
11-17-2009, 08:43 AM
As of this moment yes I am :D I won't say 100% til i have ticket in hand case hubby foils my plans. But I have the cash and the vaca and I will be steadfast and not let him make me feel guilty.

Now that should be interesting... :D

Zaela Sedai

There is only one Z....


People actually refer to me as Z, Zan, lol if people actually call you that it will be interesting

Ishara
11-17-2009, 09:47 AM
So um, wanna share a room? ;) I'm not sure if Frenzy's friend is coming or not, but I still don't know if B is coming - wouldn't it be something to get all the available Furies, Sirens and Valkyrie in the same room? :eek: :devil

Zaela Sedai
11-17-2009, 10:07 AM
oh man think of the fun we can have in there!!!!!!!


LOL I don't want to commit to sharing incase something happens last minute like it did for vegas....

Plus well, once I fill the room with all my chains and "equipment" there may not be much room :evil

No seriously though, don't want to screw anyone...pun not intended but i'll leave it LOL

Sarevok
11-17-2009, 10:12 AM

ROFLMAO!! That had me laughing in the middle of the office! :D
Luckily everyone had gone home about an hour ago.
I think I'll be laughing all the way home. :D

LOL. Not a prob, I get it. ;) But there is an advantage to rooming with the non-single, eh? No screwing necessary. LOL

Based on last year, I'd say the last of us started heading out around 4 or 5pm on Sunday. Zan and Cary stayed around for another day or so I believe, but pretty much everyone else left mid-afternoon on Sunday.

Ishara
01-14-2010, 07:26 AM
That's my plan. I love you guys, but I don't want to get home after midnight on Sunday which means leaving in the mid-afternoon.

Oh - do we know how the hotel thing is going to work? Are people just waiting until they get there to get a room, or should we reserve in a block?

I say we reserve in block, because we don't know that there will be rooms available when the convention starts. We should go ahead and figure out how many rooms we'll need amongst our group and reserve that many, and we can work out roommate arrangements later (or now, i suppose).

Ishara
01-14-2010, 01:07 PM
I agree. Plus, I'd like to have as much of this trip paid for up front as possible.

So...

Room count? (Not trying to assign rooms, just get a sense of how many we need)

1 - Me, Brita, B and Frenzy!
2 - Gil and Bry
3 - Cary and Zan
4 - Tam and Teri
5 - Zae and her possible non-TL pals/ husband?
6 - Camel + 3, maybe reTaard + WSB + ???
7 - Sei + Alyson + Pops + SoE
8 - SBX

I know I'm missing people...speak up!

ShadowbaneX
01-14-2010, 01:18 PM
I think I'd probably have my own room if possible...I'm not exactly the best room mate. If I can get my own single room that'd probably be for the best.

Also, just booked my flight. I'll probably be in Atlanta at 6:44 pm on Thursday April 22nd and I'll be leaving Sunday at 4-ish...although that means I'll need to be at the airport by what? Noon?

Hey, Ishy, I wonder what the odds of us being on the same flight down are.

Ishara
01-14-2010, 01:59 PM
Done and edited!

Not too likely I would think unless you have a stop over in Toronto. ;)

I do which is why I pondered.

Brita
01-14-2010, 03:19 PM
If I actually go, I may be on the same flight as well!! How fun would that be :) That's at least another $ 100 I'm saving by not having to pay for the priviledge of being on the same flight as SBX. This trip is practically paying for itself.

SauceyBlueConfetti
01-14-2010, 03:28 PM
I am still a maybe...not sure about the room yet as I might stay with my sister in law and drive over.

I won't make final plans for another couple of weeks. A possible new job just came up and can throw a wrench into the vacation day thingy. But I am 95% sure I am coming if everything goes as planned.

Ishara
01-14-2010, 04:37 PM
Am on flight AC8627 to Atl.

Saucy it would be all kinds of awesome to meet you!!!

ETA: SQUEEEEE! I booked my ticket and am going to see all of you! Am not-so-secretly super excited!!!

Frenzy
01-14-2010, 10:09 PM
Ishara, I can room with you, Birgitte, and Brita if you don't mind a crazy woman with you. Like Gil said: we're likely not going to sleep much.

Hey Camel, were you serious about hitching a ride with you from Birmingham? It's freakishly cheaper to fly Southwest into Birmingham than to fly anything into Atlanta. The problem is getting back to Birmingham to catch the flight out. I need to do more research.

Marie Curie 7
01-14-2010, 10:11 PM
I already reserved a room for me and Terez. If I waited until after the semester started, I knew I would put it off and maybe miss out on the convention rate or something. But I imagine that I can at some point request to be part of the Theoryland block if that works out...

Yep, serious. I can fit three people + luggage in my car, so anyone else who wants to fly into Birmingham is more than welcome to, so long as I have room. Just let me know.

Also, as far as roommates go, I will room with anyone.
