Unfortunately the 29th is my darling girlfriend's holiday party, which for some reason she seems to feel like I have to come to. Chicks!

Why a Friday anyway? Perhaps I am the only one but making it into the city and/or Silver Spring by 7pm on a workday taxes my working-for-the-man schedule even when I don't have to placate my sole source for teh boobiez.

Well, I ain't married to the 29th. The 30th didn't work for some people either, but they're not speaking up in this thread. Pretty much any day that week (between 25th and 31st) works for me.

ahfu, me neither. Three people (I think) - said 'cant do it' in the original, while twelve others signaled they were in for that day, so I'm just going with the wishes of those who responded the first time.
phearlez, so sorry i didn't consider your schedule. You must have been too busy to see the original post or too tired to constructively suggest something better this time. Real shame we might miss out.

Yay, somebody actually used 'ahfu'! Made my day.

That said, whatever date, time or place that brings more people is fine by me. My schedule is open, and for the benefit of all of you, the more people who show up besides me, the better. Really.

happy to help. i am sickabed and was too tired to type the full appellation, but there you go.
posted by nj_subgenius at 6:54 AM on December 15, 2006


I should be able to make it, but probably not until about 8:00. You guys are going to be rocking it late anyway, right?
posted by exogenous at 6:54 AM on December 15, 2006


I sure hope so. Maybe I book a shetland pony and a clown, maybe get the numbers up that way? I know I could afford a hobo who looks like quonsar.

Oh and HAY! a sign thanks to the London meetup, which just says 'class'.

Jeez, sorry to have answered saying I'd like to come but can't.
posted by phearlez at 7:44 AM on December 15, 2006


I'd love to come. I'm leaving town on the 30th, so the 19th would work great.

Nailing down a date has been a bit frustrating. I don't think nj_ meant to be as hostile as it might have sounded.

armage, any chance you typed a 1 when you meant a 2?
posted by and hosted from Uranus at 7:59 AM on December 15, 2006


Sorry phearlez. Excuse: I am sick from an Amtrak sandwich AFAICT, this and perhaps the mogabog pigpile have had bad effect.
Oh yeah, and no SO, and I've been listening to too much Lewis Black.
It's just roses over here.
posted by nj_subgenius at 8:58 AM on December 15, 2006


armage, i'll add you to the notify list for the 29th unless you really meant the 19th...help us help you!
posted by nj_subgenius at 12:22 PM on December 15, 2006


I'm pretty much up for whenever that week/weekend. Hurrah!
posted by youcancallmeal at 1:59 PM on December 15, 2006


29th, 30th, either's good with me. I'll check in as the dates(s) approach and see where the wheel has stopped.

(Amtrak sandwich...shudder...you must have been hungry.
posted by mojohand at 7:32 AM on December 16, 2006


The sandwich lady seemed so nice, like she made them in her kitchen. I could've eaten the ass-end of a warthog at the time, which...but I digress.

Can't make it that far out that soon on a weekday, I'd be coming from Reston, in rush hour the whole way. I'd rather go to the dentist.
posted by empath at 7:45 PM on December 16, 2006


My commute is Herndon to Rockville. Daily root canal.

So 8ish on Friday the 29th, or 7ish on Saturday the 30th? In this thread, 30th seems more popular.
posted by and hosted from Uranus at 8:18 PM on December 16, 2006


Yay YCCMA! Kick omiewise in the shins please. Maybe that'll get him in here.
posted by and hosted from Uranus at 8:19 PM on December 16, 2006


Votes for the 30th at 7?
posted by nj_subgenius at 9:15 PM on December 16, 2006


Either is fine with me.
posted by Nathanial Hörnblowér at 10:06 PM on December 16, 2006


Crap, I work the night of the 30th. If I miss you guys this time around I'll catch you at the next one.
posted by Nathanial Hörnblowér at 10:15 PM on December 16, 2006


I'm up for pretty much anything between the 25th and the 6th, prefferably someplace a 20-year-old can get into with minimal tomfoolery…
posted by blasdelf at 11:39 AM on December 17, 2006


I'm game.
posted by phrontist at 10:33 PM on December 17, 2006


blasdelf, no major tom needed for Galaxy.

Piggy-backing: anyone looking for a New Year's Day event? We're having a brunch. Send me an email, and you'll get an evite in return.

MrMoonPie: The last one I came to was so good, if I'm vertical on NYDays, I'd love to come. :)

Baltimore folk: anyone want to carpool?
posted by youcancallmeal at 1:45 PM on December 20, 2006


youcancallmeal: OmieWise may be able to help you. In the first notice he mentioned he might carpool from Baltimore.
posted by nj_subgenius at 4:42 PM on December 20, 2006


Omie may be unavailable after all. Let's all guilt him into changing his plans. It's the holiday season after all.
posted by and hosted from Uranus at 6:09 PM on December 20, 2006


Shit in a mitten, this is what I get for not looking at my calendar first. I can't make it afterall due to the TSO concert in Baltimore that evening.
:( Guess I'll hit up the next one.
