View Full Version : Meet up DCon?

08-26-2008, 08:20 PM
Hi all, (Hopper, Dapple, Camel especially),

I will be in Atlanta from thursday till wednesday (actually only part of wednesday). So do you wanna meet up? And are you coming to Dcon?

Let me know :)

Actually, I'm in Chicago through the middle of next week, so unfortunately, I'm going to miss DragonCon. I'm very, very upset about this, but there's nothing I can do about it at this point.

I blame Tam.

For just one instance, I wondered why you would go to the Democrat Convention.

08-27-2008, 06:48 AM
I'll be working the Con so I'll be there for pretty much the whole thing. I don't have my schedule yet, but I'd very much like to meet up.

Dapple and Kidlet will probably be coming on Sunday.

Camel: DCon is this week. It starts this friday. I am there thursday.
Are you away already than?

And Hopper : Cool let me know :)

08-27-2008, 10:31 AM
Yeah, I won't be back in Atlanta until the end of next week. Sorry. Hope you guys have fun :)

I am so close to Atlanta... but I can't go. Classes and work and sports prevent me from doing so. Sad day

A True disciple of Buttnuts, GA does not let paltry things such as class, work, and... Soccer interfere with nerd-dom.

I am displeased, my child.

08-27-2008, 07:58 PM
Ah Camel :(((( I was looking forward to meeting you again:(
Oh well, I am sure I will come to the USA some days again.

actually I didn't make the soccer team, so I am doing Cross Country instead. Not really what I wanted, but it's all good.

Hee Hee..

Was glad to get a chance to chat for a bit no matter how short. Wish I could get to D-Con but with 2 family reunions over Labor Day weekend this year it isn't happening. I am saving my pennies though and hoping SoE can arrange to escort me to Europe in 2010. May be dreaming but why not dream if you can. Anyway, I would have enjoyed seeing you and getting a big hug. One I so richly deserve for not calling you Isabela all the time. LOL I hope you enjoy yourself, and don't mistreat Hopper too much. A little is okay. At least as much as Dapple will allow!!!!

Hey Pops :)
Yeah it was very nice talking to you :) However, Zae's phone couldn't stop ringing :p
Family reunions are more important than Dcon but perhaps we meet up at Jordan Con next year, or another time?
And ofcourse me, Dai and Yks will give you a tour when you are in the Netherlands!
I hope that the dollar becomes stronger again, else europe is unaffordable :(

Can I be there too? I've never met Yks... and never even talked to this Dai character online...

EXCUSE ME!!!!!!!

Europe = The Netherlands?

freakin' dutchies... and Pops... you got the year wrong... that was 2012... NOT 2010... unless you plan for TWO trips???:eek:

08-28-2008, 05:08 PM
HEY! I wanna go to Europe! I can practice all the languages! I can do it! I wanna go!

Funny thing I like to do here that I don't think I've ever said before...when I turn down an all Mexican crew for something, I like to hand them the"fail" sticker along with the "fail" permit and them tell them, in very much butchered spanish, "you failed because the form dumped milk in your shoes" or "falla porque la forma vertio la leche en zapatos" (or however you spell all that) and then walk away. The looks are awesome as they try to figure out what I really meant....

Oh, c'mon, I have to do something to make my day go by...

Oh, they mutter lots worse the whole time I'm there. I understand most of the cuss words.

Hey, me, too! At first the cooks wouldn't teach me anything bad, but I talked them around eventually. Once they heard me cursing like a sailor, the figured it didnt' really matter in what language I cursed!

The best thing about waiting tables was learning spanish from the cooks! :D

08-28-2008, 06:00 PM
I've recently begun to wanna learn another language for some reason.. I've studied both german and french for three years separetly but that was a long time ago in school and have forgotten most of it. I think german is a little, eh, boring :) so I might take up french again. Or do a 180 and try to learn spanish, exiciting language. :)

Now I only have to go from saying to doing :D

08-28-2008, 08:22 PM
Hehe, ofcours you can be there, Sare, but until now Dai and me and yks were the NL.

Hopper let me know when we can meet up!
Otherwise I will give you a call.

Paying more money now for internet, so i am off. Won't check that much.

Isabel -

I'll be at the Space and Science tracks on the 2nd floor of the Hilton for most of the weekend. I'm planning to be at the meet and greet for Brandon Sanderson and probably the Memorial for Robert Jordan.

Hey Petey, I'm hoping the dollar will rebound at least enough for me to survive financially on a trip. Howsomeever, no matter how much the rebound, since I intend to go through London to attempt a meet with a couple o folks there, I don't want to have to put up with so much expense considering the Olympics will be on the way and everything will already be starting to be expensive. So, who knows. Might never make it but I can only start working in that direction!!! Besides, I'd pay at least a Euro to meet yks...
