    Do your folks read the boards too?

    'Cause if my youngun ever came up to me and asked if 10 people she met over the internet could come over and hang out in my basement, I'd be leary. Unless, of course, it was this forum.

    Sure, whatever you wanna bring! Our selection of games is pretty crappy since we got the console about two weeks ago.

    Yeah, I kinda had to run that one through my head a couple times, but that's what they said I think.

    And I hadn't even ASKED, my mom just randomly offered the idea. o.O

    Hey, just a heads up, all. I just double checked and the hotel has a heated indoor pool and a hot tub. Alarra and I will be bringing swim suits.

    See everyone tomorrow!

    Forgive my paranoia, but I'm wondering how we're all going to find each other. Will someone be wearing a badge that says "I love Stick figures"? Will someone be wearing a white carnation? Especially since I'll be there late and will probably have to meet you all at the restaurant.

    Hmm. I'm thinking to get down to the restaurant about a half-hour early, so I'll hang around in an easily spottable area... Just look for a 17 year old kid with short brown hair and a beard, in a red shirt and hoodie.

    I'll approach any confused looking strangers and ask them if they're in the playground or somesuch.

    Look up pictures of us in the You thread.

    A shame that I probably won't be there when you're looking to find the group, Steve, as I am usually wearing interesting attire that makes me identifiable when I need to be.

    Also, I think the only part of the restaurant where they can seat 14 people is right near the front. We'll likely be the largest group there.

    I thought of making wanted posters from the You thread, but that seems too much like work. But if the restaurant isn't that big it shouldn't be too hard (I was just envisioning walking around asking a lot of people about sticks and getting strange looks).

    ok, there was some silly. my wife decided at 11 last night to finally tell me she felt a bit to worried about me goin to cleveland by myself, so this morning (saturday) i've been calling people, everyone has plans. so i call the contact number i was PMed, wake someone up (sorry) and tell them i can't make it.

    then my parents call and want to watch the kido. so now my wife can come with me. so i'll be a few hours later than planned.

    she's not trying to cause troubble, she's just really quiet about what concerns her. but we'll be there if anyone has internet access and whatnot, tell Alarra or Zeb to expect a call, they're the contact numbers i was given.




    Edit: we came, we saw, we enjoyed. sorry we were only there for a short while, having a child and no planned sitter untill the day of will do that to you.

    my only regret is not getting to play the otts board game, but there's always another meetup a while down the road.

    PS: you know how hard it is to explain to someone "yea, i'm driving out to cleveland to find a group of people i've never met before, and all we know for sure is we read the same comic strips, but it's ok, it'll be fun."

    The above is me after a 8+ hour drive through whiteout conditions for part of it back home.

    I had a blast, and I wish to thank everyone for letting me come and making me feel welcomed.

    Hope everyone else who had to drive home has a safe drive.

    Things I have learned from my first Meetup
    • Smellie Hippie beer can be listed as a explosive device when first opened.
    • Smellie Hippie beer is really good after recovering from the burns from reading the note that came with them
    • Rock Band Rocks! Especially with the other Panda's.
    • Certain people are really good at poker
    • Ego-Slayer is Evil!!!*
    • In-Person death scenes are most amusing!
    • Cleveland lake-effect snow is very evil
    • Most Important of All - Everyone is awesome! If only the weekend could have lasted longer.

    This meetup was great, thanks to everyone who came and especially to Zeb and Alarra for bringing Rock Band. I've posted some pictures over in the you thread for everyone to enjoy.

    I'm already looking forward to the next meetup.

    I got home, after horrible driving conditions all through Ohio and Pennsylvania, though it was much better after we hit New York.

    ...

    Can I come back now?

    Seriously, best weekend ever, and I'm not exaggerating.
