View Full Version : Revised Plan for MI/OH Dopers to get together
07-08-2002, 01:20 AM
Well, now, that's quite a plan. I don't know exactly what to say.
07-08-2002, 01:23 AM
If it's this week...ack, can't go. I need to catch up at work.
Although I am curious if any eastern MI Dopers (or anybody else) is interested in going to the Michigan Renaissance Fest sometime between August and October. Personally, I want an excuse to go up to Persephone's house and ask her for some pie. :D

Just keeping ya guessing, folks.
No, the server ATE my post.
Anyway, I said something like this:
I'm not reviving the old thread on this because plans have changed. But as you might recall, I notified you all that two great events are happening in Ann Arbor in mid-July. The first is(are) the Ann Arbor Art Fairs. The second is the visit of EnderW24.
Ender has kindly changed his schedule so I don't have to try to lure people to Ann Arbor twice. He will be coming in on Friday, July 19th and staying through Saturday July 20th.
I propose that those of us who want to walk around Art Fair on Saturday afternoon. Then, those of us who want to can join up (or stay) for dinner with Ender on Saturday evening. You can do either one or you can do both, depending on your preferences and your other pressing weekend engagements.
I haven't decided on time or places yet (picking a restaurant could be a bit tricky what with an extra 100,000 people milling about Ann Arbor that day) but we'll work something out. Post your interest here and/or drop me an email.
That's SATURDAY, JULY 20th.
Last year a group of us walked around the Art Fair(s) together on Saturday and had a blast. I'd like to do that again. However, for those who don't

Okay, how many times can a person screw up in her own thread?
Ignore the last 2 1/2 sentences of the above post.

I believe I will be out of town that weekend. Have fun guys!

Oooh, this could be doable after all. I could jet Friday morning, spend Saturday in A2, and leave Sunday afternoon. Consider me a strong maybe!
07-08-2002, 01:49 PM
Damn! And I leave MI on the 17th.
Well, I'm up for it. I'm bored to tears and don't know anyone.
Sue, will you at least stop by and visit me? PLEASE?
(Do I sound desperate? I ought to.)
07-08-2002, 07:19 PM
Hey! I don't remember hearing about this one!
You don't love me anymore, do you?
I'll just be over here in the corner, eating some worms. ;)
07-08-2002, 09:08 PM
So, got any pie?
07-08-2002, 10:06 PM
There was an earlier thread, Pers.
Bunnygirl is out of town that weekend, so she's a no. She was our big rally-er for the Art Fair last year, so if we don't get a group together for that (and instead just do dinner) that's fine too.
I heard that, Hello Again.
07-08-2002, 10:40 PM
Count me in. I may actually have some money to spend. I also promise to wear more comfortable shoes this time.
07-08-2002, 10:49 PM
*sniff* I had such a good time at the Art Fair last year...I miss you guys! I'll just wear my mind-bogglingly gorgeous necklace and earrings that day so I'll be there in spirit.
07-08-2002, 10:54 PM
Shoot...have to work that weekend
07-09-2002, 07:23 PM
So, got any pie?
Well yeah, but it's really old and left over from Thanksgiving. I think it was pumpkin. I think. Coulda been cherry, though. I'm not sure. :eek:
07-09-2002, 09:27 PM
Yeah, but...it's still pie, right? If it has conversations with you when you open the fridge, it's not pie anymore. :D
07-09-2002, 09:29 PM
Yeah, I guess I'll come.
07-09-2002, 09:32 PM
Yeah, but...it's still pie, right? If it has conversations with you when you open the fridge, it's not pie anymore.
Ah. Well then, I guess I DON'T have any pie then. Sorry to disappoint you. :D
07-11-2002, 07:12 PM
Come on folks, this is a fact to hang out with me! Ms. Fun and Excitement! In the flesh!
Let's have a little more enthusiasm, and fewer of these lame excuses.
Of course, if it's just Kyla, Shadowfox, and me, so be it. I am pretty sure I've got MrBlue92 on board, too, and of course EnderW25 is my hostage. *evil laugh*
07-13-2002, 09:19 AM
Hostage? If you actually get a bagful of stale cookies for a ransom I'd be surprised.
07-13-2002, 09:31 AM
It's times like these when I wish I could fork over the money for a car instead of classes and books and a roof over my head and all.
Have fun, guys! :)

That post above by pucette was not by pucette, it was by me. Ender. I showed it to her and she was so repulsed by the sheer stupidity of the comment that she refused to allow me to besmirch her good name.
I am unbesmirching it now. In fact, I'm resmirching it.
07-13-2002, 01:33 PM
I don't know if I can go...yet. I think my husband has a gig that afternoon. BUT, if I can get him to ride with someone else, and find a sitter for my kids, I'm there.
Unless mrblue wants to drive me there...again...no wait, I drove last time...yeah, it's his turn...:D
07-17-2002, 05:30 PM
So, is this still a go for this Saturday?
Well, I'm going to be there. And I'm forcing quixotic78 to go, too. He'll be the lone Ohio representative, I think.
I keep seeing all these signs saying "Shuttle for Art Fair." I haven't ventured downtown since the fair started, but the signs make me think that traffic will be a nightmare, and shuttles are a Good Idea. Cranky, do you have an idea for meeting at a shuttle stop, or at a cafe or something? Anyone have a time in mind?
07-17-2002, 10:53 PM
Crap, this won't happen for me because:
1) I'm too wiped out from work and a horde of other activities to make a 16 hour drive this weekend. Is my age showing yet?
2) I have a date Friday night. Crankster, babe, I love ya, but you're married and she's not. :D (Also, I made the date after I decided I wasn't going...don't feel bad.)
Oh well...I'll be back in MI in a month anyway. Here's hoping we can do an MI Renaissance Dope this fall!
07-18-2002, 08:46 AM
I *suppose* I could drop by Persephone's place, assuming she can keep the three-headed dog at bay this time.
Of course, a specific time for this whole deal would be nice. *cough*
07-18-2002, 12:40 PM
We will meet at 1 pm Saturday at the center court of the Briarwood Mall. Once we are all assembled, we will proceed to the Shuttle Bus departure area and head to the Art Fair.
I will be looking for Ender (he'll probably be beside me), Kyla & quix, Shadowfox, Persephone, and MrBlue92. Others are welcome, but you better either get there early or tell me you're coming, because otherwise I'll think everyone is accounted for and we'll leave when the aforementioned list of people gathers.
AFTER Art Fair, we will go back to the mall and our cars and then we can go to The Cranky Manor and figure out what we're doing for dinner. If anyone wants to do dinner but ain't meeting us for the art fair, this would also be a good time to let me know. Hint, hint. Anyone who needs to get home and can't stay for dinner, that's fine too.
Bring a hat or sunglasses (perhaps both) and wear good walking shoes.
07-19-2002, 09:13 AM
Yes, in fact, I *am* bumping my own thread again.
Am I loser? Yeah, pretty much.
07-19-2002, 08:08 PM
Oh yeah. I have a positive confirmation. I'm gonna be there. Sorry about that. :D
Oh, and mrblue? Sorry about the dog thing. he didn't mean to do...that...in your truck bed last time. He just gets a little excited. I'll make sure he's in the basement tomorrow, I promise.
