NYC Meetup May 20, 2005 1:48 PM   Subscribe

In the discussion of last month's NYC meetup, mention was made of another meetup to be held a month or so later, perhaps with a special guest star. Anything ever happen with that?

Cancelled due to inclement weather.

No special guest. He doen't love us. We could always have one anyway.

Nobody, aren't you gone?

He doesn't love us, and isn't coming to town.
*chokes back a sob*

We can totally have one--pick a day. We can trash him and write mean shoutouts and stuff.

Sounds good to me. Any weekend but 3-5 June, because Book Expo is that weekend & I must drink and schmooze. But it seems like no one is looking at this so maybe no one wants to have one.

The Special Guest Star for this coming meetup will be Alexander Hamilton.

I'll be personally escorting him over, so everyone can meet him at the bar.

Awesome, Dalek--I'd love the chance to ask him about some niggly points in those Papers of his that have been bothering me for some time.

Seriously, I'd probably come to just about any weekend except the very next one (family visiting).

How about June 11? I'm out of town this upcoming weekend, and dame has knocked out the first weekend in June, so what about then?

I'd come, but I'm getting in to town the weekend after that.

So why don't we wait for the next weekend and make it a Welcome Still Event? People don't seem to be clamoring just now.

Dame, I was out of town for the weekend, but the big trip to the electricity-less island isn't until June 10-18. Pushing the meetup one weekend still further on my behalf probably isn't worth it. As long as the next one isn't at the very end of August, I'll be there.
