Toronto meetup. February 24, 2006 4:03 AM   Subscribe

Toronto meetup reminder: it's tomorrow night (Saturday, the 25th) at 8 p.m. And I have a proposition for you all — a change of venue. Joelf is leaving Toronto to move back to Victoria, B.C. next week. His goodbye party is at the Madison. So, perhaps we could have our meetup there and deign to mingle with his punk ass friends in order to say our farewells.

Let's try that Madison link again.

Frigging MeTa thread posting mechanism. It was either go ahead with a bad Madison link, or go back to a blank comment field and type everything in again. And I'm in a hurry to get to work.

That's a good idea (but I can't make it).

Sorry, can't make this one.

Alas, I must join the chorus of non-attendees (and somewhere, someone is breathing a sigh of relief :P). The other half doesn't want to come, and I'm broke-ass, so.... I'll be there in spirit!

Ooh, can you wait for me? I'm moving to Toronto in 2 weeks!

The Madison is so close to me! But I have another good-bye party that night, so, sadly I can't make it. (Also, I'm shy and you're all very scary. Yeah, that's it.)

Crap! I'm joining a sad chorus. An old friend of mine is in town that night, so I can't make it either. I'm sorry.

I'm running away to join the circus so don't count on my presence.

Unfortunately, I will have left my pants in Portland, and will be stuck in my hotel that night.

I live in Vancouver, some 4,370 km away. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend.

Joelf makes me nervous. It's the glove. So, I can't be there. :(

I think I might be gay.

I killed thirteen men with a hatchet and a rubber mallet in Nunavut last week, so I gotta stay out of Canada for a few couple weeks (Canadians are like goldfish, short memories). Sorry dude.

The Maddy is a scary place.

Can't. Ocean.

I don't even know where that is!

Hilariously enough, in really irritating way, I now can't go. About 7:30 this evening I bashed a foot on my &^%$#@! brand new sewing box in the dining room because I forgot I'd put it next to the table when I was sewing today and ran into it in the dark. There's a raw patch and some swelling and I can't get any of my shoes on comfortably.

Have a good time, Joel. I'm sorry not to be able to say goodbye in person.
