Get together tomorrow

We’re on for 2 pm at McGee’s. I put in for room for 25 people under the name of Doug.

Hopefully, someone will bring a balloon, but in any case, I have red hair and will have on a purple-checked shirt and a grey herringbone sports jacket.

    Will definitely be there but probably a few minutes late. So exciting! :)

    Purple checks with red hair?

    Might want to rethink that.

    Its probably a bit late to rethink the red hair.

    Just a suggestion: whenever a couple dozen out of thousands of readers are planning a get-together, perhaps you could do a single post saying “Everybody in X area who wants to get together, email me”. Then you could, you know, plan a thing involving .001% of the readership in private, rather than taking up front page space with it for days on end.

    I’m kind of a noob lurker on here, but Nom Plume’s comment is one of the most dickish I can recall. Is he a regular troller? Trying to keep my good guys/bad guys straight ala 80’s WWF.

    This was on my radar, but I don’t think I’m getting out of Philly tomorrow. Maybe next time.

    Have fun.

    You have it right. Welcome and soon we will be arguing with you.

    Wish I could go, but return airfares from London might make it a little out of reach. Have a great time, though… and if anyone brings a balloon, make sure it’s a green one.

    I wish I could come, but I feel like I am coming down with flu or something. I am exhausted from knocking on doors in NH last weekend. All I want to do this weekend is sleep. May be next time.

    I didn’t know that you were a ginger! Didn’t John Cole confess to his weakness for gingers sometime back. Is that how you got your front page gig? It would be irresponsible not to speculate.

    Have fun everyone.

    If transportation is running normally from Jersey to NYC on the weekends post-Sandy (not a proven fact yet), I’ll be there.

    I can’t believe there’s finally a meet-up near me!
    (I know there’s been other NYC ones, but I’ve always been out of town.)
    I’m normally just a lurker but there’s a very good chance I will be joining.
    You’ve been warned.

    @quannlace:

    SNL was going to do one about a wacky Presidential candidate who ignores all the swing state polls that show him behind and comically insists that he’ll win anyway, but real life got there first.

    Somebody just doesn’t get vicarious pantless parties. I do rather assume we could work up a 400-thread deciding what to put on their pizza. Easily.

    “… which was written on a bit of board, hung over the front door.”

    (I remember it as “Saunders”, though.)

    Also, props to Piglet’s grandfather, Trespassers William.

    Dang, McGee’s sounds like fun. Wish I could be there. Y’all have a great get together!

    @Nom de Plume: I’ve got one of those fancy mice with a scroll button. It’s really nice, lets me zoom right past “Pet Blegs” and other posts I don’t like to read. I bought two of these amazing mice because I had never seen them before. Send me yr mailing address and I’ll happily send you one to cram up your ass.

    Dang. Friends coming into town today, so can’t make it this time around. Was hoping post-Sandy gas supply issues would put them off for a couple of weeks. (Is that wrong? lol) Have fun all!
