For those that are hanging around the extra day to go to Disney on Sunday: We usually meet about 10:00 am at the fountain over in front of the arena portion of the convention center, but we can finalize plans when we're there.


Anyone who is going to BlizzCon that wants my cell phone number, to find out where everyone else is, etc (since I inevitably seem to be the central hub for the UI community that's there), feel free to send me a PM.

Oh no!

Bogus alert!

I just realized the date and time of the dinner... my flight won't be on the ground yet. I don't know why I didn't realize the conflict before now.

/sigh

Can I get a Shrimp N'Orleans and desert goggie bag?

/pout

Late... like just before 11pm. It was the best time I could get because I can't get out of work THursday, so flying out of here at 6pm eastern and arriving there just before 11pm western.

Ugh. Sorry.

Every other year it's been on the Friday, but it's always meant everyone had to miss the contests and stuff at the con. So I checked with a bunch of the 'regulars' and everyone thought moving it to the Thursday would be better.

Damn, sorry you aren't going to be able to make it.

Next year I'll take more time and make sure I'm there early the day before.

This year I'll just suffer through a cold PB&J on the flight while muttering obscenities to myself... it shouldn't make the other passengers too uncomfortable ~grin~

Yes, because grumbling Dwarfs (Dwarves?) on an airplane never make anyone uncomfortable...

Good thing my flight gets in at 3 PM that day. I'll be there. And quite hungry.

MAAAAANNNN ... I am SOOO jealous of you guys.

Why can't they ever have the convention in other venues around the country each year. Maybe next time in Boston (Hint Hint Blizz).

BUT enjoy the events guys and gals .. wish I was there.

I almost want to fly there to just eat dinner with you all.

I was offered a chance to go for free to everything except the con itself (sold out, not really interested). My boss' just-turned-adult son is going on Tues. (tomorrow) and returning next Weds. and his (my boss') wife isn't greatly interested in California since she has some in-laws that her son is going to visit.

I wish I'd have been thinking of a few of the things you all had planned, before making my snap decision ... but then again, rooming with a nerd raging teenager for that length of time while keeping him and 3 of his friends out of trouble during the day... not exactly the level of responsibility I'm looking for just to have a great dinner and hang out at Disney with a few of you that I'd be interested in meeting irl. I do hope you guys have a blast; maybe next year.

Please note:

If you are one of the 42 signed up and you know that you can't make it after all, PLEASE(!!!!!!) let me know by noon on Thursday at the absolute latest. Otherwise we're paying for meals that aren't getting eaten. Thanks.
