Awesome! It wouldn't be the same visiting Gary's Column during the festivities without you.

I agree - the visit to Gary's Column would be pretty anti-climatic without you. Besides, that's a lot of free beer to turn down, Gary :D :beer:

Eh. Like he said earlier, he's much more interesting on the internet. :yes:

JKJKJKJK! :funny: Gary is one of the wittiest guys I know. I'm so glad he's able to come to the meet. So true - it wouldn't be the same without him!

I WAS AT THE 10th?

Actually, weren't you guys in the awesome pirate costumes at the Halloween party? The only other costume I remember was someone dressed as a Tootsie Roll and I can't remember who it was.

That was Greg, and for the life of me I can't remember his username on here. :confused:

Getting worried, because I used to be so good at that. :doh:

Yup, you were... I've got the picture to prove it... ;)

(and yes, we had pirate costumes, but so did Cher (aka TheSorcererofFantasia) and her husband... I was in the Eliz Swan full pirate/swashbuckling costume, my DH was Jack, braids & all... she was in the Eliz Swan bridal dress and her husband was Jack, as well. That was SO much fun!!! :pirate:)

Man I never get to meet Dpamac.

When does your flight arrive?

I have to admit that I don't remember if I met you at the 10th, but I will make sure I remember not to remember you this time! ;)

No, I appreciate a healthy wit. Although, I recall that it was Carol who was schooling everyone on the last podcast!

And maybe we'll get a live version of, "The Ballad of the Yeti"! That would make the anniversary party complete.

6:10. We'll be crossing paths in the sky.

Carol was killing it. She was just dryly shooting off one-liners.

How could you not remember meeting me? I was right there. See me? I'm the one in the INTERCOT shirt with the blinking lanyard.

I can see me! Perhaps you could be a little more specific???

My kiddo, Jacob, is at the very bottom toward the right hand side with the Goofy hat with teeth. I am right behind him, although not directly behind him, and my neck is glowing oddly blue.

Which blinky, intercot-shirted person are you?

Love that picture. I hear you're joining us at Liberty Tree, Gary. Looking forward to it.

Hmmm...Perhaps this was Gary's plan the whole time...

By the way, Gary, using my incredible powers of deduction, I can identify you as being to the left of Jared in a light blue, non-Icot shirt, with a blue hat.

And, of course, NOW I remember meeting you! (Not really, but at least I found your picture!)

Seriously, that whole weekend is a blur. So many people, it was amazing! There are faces in the photo that I remember having really long conversations with but, over time, have forgotten who they are on the boards.

After going back and forth...."Do we all go?"..."Do we go, just the two of us, and get someone to stay with the girls?"..."Or do I accept DH's offer to send me and a couple of friends as an anniversary gift?".... I finally gave in to my own selfishness and set forth plans for a last minute trip to I-15 without the family (well, DD, 13, is now coming b/c one friend was not able to swing an extra day off work).

Thank God (and John), we are booked for events , have a room at Beach Club, airline tickets are purchased (although we now have to stay until Monday for better fares back to STL-what luck! ;-) ), Yeti t-shirts are ordered, and I actually got ressies (2weeks out!) at LeCellier (which will, hopefully, allow for us to catch up at Off Kilter meet with Mel and Carol and then get over to Gary's Column)! ----this was one of the deciding factors in going......"put the money toward principal on our house?"....or "Go buy Gary a beer?" Since we're booked to set sail on the Fantasy in April, I thought about even paying that off but, when we heard Gary was going, DH said, "You gotta go buy Gary a beer!" :beer:

I can't wait to meet everyone!---and buy you a beer, Gary!!!!

BTW, since Gary is coming and since we're doing a live podcast on Sunday, I'm thinking that there has to be a sing-a-long to "The Yeti Is Down" during the podcast. If we're all wearing our shirts, even better!

Hooray! Being more important than the principal on a loan finally gives me an actual worth! This gives me leverage. It'll be pretty funny if we're on the same flight...

This would confuse everyone at the Contemporary very, very much.

I approve.

Funny. You know, the loan will still be there next month when I'm listening to I-15 podcast and I would be kicking myself for not going and missing the chance to meet you! So, yes, worth it!!!

Listening to episode 40 on the way back to Jeff City now and you just said you arrive Thurs. So it is possible. We leave Thursday on the 3:30 flight out of STL(on Southwest) and come home on the 8:40am flight Monday morning.

So glad this was a last minute decision to go b/c I'm so excited that I don't know if I would have been able to wait "months"! Looking forward to meeting you all!!

OK, so I thought I remembered seeing (somewhere) your arrival time. Duh, it's at the very beginning of this thread. I must be going crazy. Guess we'll have to listen for your voice when we get into the parks since you're on an earlier flight. :(

Just got home from KC and our MNSSHP tickets have arrived!!!! ....Woo hooo....and Yeti t's are here too!!! We're all set! :mpumpkin:


See you soon!

Maria
