All right, kids...


Frenzy and I have decided to take it upon ourselves to arrange the logistics of the Theoryland Invasion of Jordancon 2010. That being said, post here if you think you're going to go, will move heaven and earth to show up, or just think you might make an appearance.


Bryan and I will be moving heaven and earth to get there if we have to find the One Power and invent Traveling.

This is what I said last year, but I managed to make it even without that. Hope you guys find another way, because I still think it's unlikely we can achieve this in 6 months.

Anyway, I am going to try to make it as well.

I'm seriously thinking about it. It all has to do with any job stuff that will *hopefully* happen.

Hehe, sounds familiar.

However, even if I get a job, it's unlikely I'll be able to get that much time off in the middle of the season.

I want to go, but will only be able to if I manage to keep school from crashing down on me between now and then. But beyond that, I don't think that money or anything will be an issue for me getting there. Just school.

Assuming my job doesn't disappear on me I'll be there.

If someone manages to find the OP and invent Travelling, lemme know...cause that's the only way I'd get to go. Combination of lack of funds and school. ~shrug~. Maybe next time. :)

I won't go either.

I am wondering, though, for which posters the count of heads will go farther than "One."

Since I'm posting... I won't be making it.

Muirenn
10-08-2009, 07:09 PM
I'm required to be there, seeing as how it's my shindig. :)

Let me know if y'all plan a dinner or something and I'll try to make it.

Pending further developments with my dad I might or might not be able to make it. Really no way of saying at the moment :(

I'm doing everything in my power to get down there... It's just making husband ok with it...though I think I'll be there short of divorce, my mother in law is on my side! LOL

Dragon Thief
10-09-2009, 09:15 PM
I would really really (really really really) like to go, cause I want to meet more of the TLers than the four on my list so far.

Having said that, Baby Thief will be roughly 9 months old at that time, so I doubt I'll be making it. I really won't be able to answer till it's far closer.

Consider for a moment how wolves feel about leashes and decide for yourself if it's worth putting your fingers that close to my teeth. :)

Silly puppy. No one said where Z was going to tie the leash on you at.

I mentioned the idea to the wife. She's open to it, situation and money depending of course.

Jonai
10-21-2009, 05:10 AM
Group discount would be cool, assuming you all haven't registered yet. Also, if anyone wants to split a room, let me know. More money for booze that way. haha

Ishara
10-26-2009, 02:02 PM
Brace yourselves.

Come hell or high water, I will be there. I was talking myself out of it the other day (better things to spend the money on, buying a new house, work, vacation etc.) and just thought NO. I want to go, I want to see all of you, so I will.

Now, how do I go about doing that, and who wants to share a room? ;)

So, are we doing group membership?

Are people staying in the hotel? (Cause I have to admit that $109/ night is a bit steep for me, especially if you're looking at 3+ nights).

WinespringBrother
10-27-2009, 09:55 AM
Very cool!

It's definitely worth it to stay in the hotel, especially if you are room-sharing. 4 to a room was no problem last time, especially since you probably won't spend much time there anyway.

Leanne
10-27-2009, 11:01 AM
You mean you really didn't mind being stuck in the corner. :D

Zanguini
10-27-2009, 04:18 PM
Fairy and I will be going and I believe I will chip in for a room at the hotel. I am not sure how she will feel about sharing a room. We will more than likely arrive the day before and leave the day after as it is our vacation for the year. We should be there for 5 days. Please contact the Fairy for further information.

Yellowbeard
10-28-2009, 10:57 AM
I live a 30 minute drive from the hotel. Didn't make it last year because I decided I needed a hiking trip instead, but perhaps I'll make plans to wander down for it this year...dressed up in a Fade costume or something.

Gilshalos Sedai
10-29-2009, 01:28 PM
Does anyone know if the Crowne Plaza serves breakfast? I hate having to track down a McD's or Starbuck's first thing.

Zanguini
10-29-2009, 01:37 PM
crowne plaza according to rumor is across the street from a mall

rumor confirmed the crowne plaza is across the street from perimeter mall

I imagine there are two or three starbucks in the mall

Gilshalos Sedai
10-29-2009, 01:48 PM
And mall's don't open till 10....

Zanguini
10-29-2009, 01:55 PM
And mall's don't open till 10....

relax there is another starbucks about a mile from the hotel.

Gilshalos Sedai
10-29-2009, 02:35 PM
Just saying. You DO NOT want to socialize with me before I've had coffee. That crap in the hotel room probably barely qualifies.

Zanguini
10-29-2009, 04:18 PM
Thats okay I am antisocial.

Muirenn
10-29-2009, 11:02 PM
Kittens, there is a Starbucks *inside* the Crowne Plaza. They've already been warned that we will be there and require caffeine. ;)

Terez
10-30-2009, 02:43 AM
I've had the hotel room crap. It at least manages to knock the fuzz off my brain, and serves till I can get something decent.

Ishara
10-30-2009, 10:30 AM
Starbucks. Excellent.

So I can assume everyone's staying in-house?

Who's coming when? Is there a handle on dates/ times of arrivals? (besides those of the con?)

ShadowbaneX
10-30-2009, 11:59 AM

Interesting? Define 'interesting?'

Oh, God, oh, God! We're all gonna die!

Cary Sedai
11-01-2009, 02:01 PM
Zan and I will definitely be there, and we will be staying at the crowne. Sharing a room would be wonderful, so that I can use the money we will save to make Zan take me to the ocean before we leave!:D

So, if anyone is interested in room sharing let me know and we'll work out the details. We will also be renting a car while we are there, so if anyone wants to do a little sight seeing on the side... I'm sure we can work out something.

We shall also bring our scrabble board, and all WoT words are worth double! :p

Frenzy
11-01-2009, 03:18 PM
i'm planning on going, and i'll probably want to share a room so i don't have to share a room with Gil & Bryan. i'm sure the giggling would get old.

Is Birgitte coming? If so, that's three for a room so far...

Ishara
11-02-2009, 09:06 AM
SWEET. Count me in Frenzy! B? T? You coming?

Frenzy
11-03-2009, 12:11 PM
i'm trying to talk a friend into going, and if she does i'll need two spots in the room. i'll let you know.

At this time, "baring", barring any unseen incidents and "if the Good Lord is willin' and the creek don't rise" I'll be there and have plans to bring Seitaer and Son of Elvis along. Here's hoping we can pull it off this year. We were all three together last in Seattle in '08. Didn't get to get together this year and especially would like to let you see all three of us in action at the same time. Caution: It ain't a purty site

Its only a 6 hour drive from the coast.

Terez
12-03-2009, 09:23 AM
I know, but my car sucks, and then there's hotels. I'm thinking it might be better for me to stay with some friends in Albany cause I'm always broke. We will see. Maybe my mom will let me take her car.

Thanks for pulling that together Camel - that DID help!

Frenzy, any word on your pal?

Terez
12-03-2009, 03:34 PM
I will be coming, one way or another, I think. I will work something out. I will probably be sharing a room with Marie.

Cary Sedai
12-04-2009, 12:28 AM
At first I thought Zan and I would share a room, then he went and proposed, so sorry kids. No sharing! I know you understand, you'd never want to roomshare with someone on thier honeymoon, anyway! :p

Gilshalos Sedai
12-04-2009, 09:35 AM
Uh... if Bryan and I are going to stay in a hotel, we're not sharing a room. Except with each other.

SauceyBlueConfetti
12-04-2009, 10:26 AM

A very very small chance i might be there.
I normally go on skiing holiday with my parents in the spring, but if there is no snow or too busy working, and I have money, than I might go to Jordan Con.
However, I do think the skiing vacation is going to happen :)

pops taer
12-08-2009, 08:16 PM
Yep, it's all approved, the time off and the kitchen pass from my bride. I will be there. Seitaer is a definite and SoE is a "semi" definite depending on work schedule. Therefore, Zaela, you better move heaven and earth because getting the afore mentioned kitchen pass from my bride is costing me a small fortune.

Here's a shot o' litnin' to April!!!

So Ishara was working her considerable charm on Friday to convince me to come. I threw the idea out to my hubby, expecting ridicule and disbelief, and he was like "Ya, why not?"

So......I will be keeping an eye on cheap flights, and I am not the least bit adverse to sharing sleeping arrangements.

You can add me to that definite list. I only live fifteen minutes away, so I'd never forgive myself if I missed out on this.

Also, everyone needs to go to the Varsity. It'd be the perfect place for everyone to gather and eat together, since it's enormous.

We should all wear TL shirts, and when we're in line, pull out giant notebooks of notes and things to ask him, and then when we get to the signing table, spread out the notebooks and say "OK, question number one..."

He may very well shit himself.

I think we need to get started on the questions we're going to ask. We need to craft them in such a way that RAFO just isn't an acceptable answer.

I talked to my dad and it's unlikely we go skiing for a week.
So depending on a cheap flight. and a few roommates.

Anyone willing to be my roommate again?

12-31-2009, 01:49 AM
I've been giving some consideration to starting to think about the possibility of idly musing over the concept of deciding if I might want to go.

But I haven't made up my mind.

Even though my nephew just offered me his United miles to upgrade to first class, as long as I continue to the DC area after the convention to visit my family.

And CARY will be there! :)

Argh. I don't want to fly again... :(


Oh - and sharing a room is probably not desirable. I'm getting old and I do snore (Tana's boy Anatoly was kind enough to let me know this...) and pharte (this, however, he failed to comment on...) and I probably suck my teeth in my sleep. Or something.

So put me down as a ... uhm. Maybe.

I could actually end up bringing non TLers with me. So I could end up with full room or empty lol. Regardless it will be open up to any stray pups or warders or furies or dutchies... etcetc...

OR it will be the partay room where we can congragate after the early risers go to bed :D

Birgitte
02-02-2010, 06:23 PM
Okay... FINALLY I can give a for sure answer to what I'm doing. I'm getting a pretty nice tax return, so I can actually make plans! Yay for me.

Okay, first off, Sorry ladies, but I'll be staying with Seeker. We've got our own hotel room in a hotel that's three blocks from the con, but a lot cheaper than staying in the same hotel. But we will both definitely be there! :D:D:D

Unfortunately my Dad's situation prevents me from going. Wish I could be there. But I'll be checking here regularly for updates when JordanCon rolls around.
