Another Assboink, Idaho thread

With so manny of the Dopers having get togethers, I thought I would throw one more location out there. Anyone in the Tampa, Florida area? I know there is at least one other Doper who lives around here, in the Orlando area. Two does not make for a very exciting get together. ::looking around hopefully::

Don’t know who said it, but I like it.

May I humbly suggest that perhaps you’re doing it wrong.

Not sure if I am the one you are referring to as an Orlando person, but here’s another Florida resident (for now. If I move soon enough I just might be calling for an Atlanta get-together.)

Well, shut my mouth. It’s also illegal to put squirrels down your pants for the purposes of gambling.

Assboink, Idaho! ROFLMAO!!!

Mullinator, driving up to Atlanta over Christmas, by any chance? Michelle, care to drive up to Atlanta over Christmas by any chance? :slight_smile: I’ve started a thread regarding an Atlanta get-together. I’m too lazy to look up the link right now, though.

Hi Michelle, another Tampa resident here! Ready and willing if a Florida get-together can be arranged.

I thought there was at least one more Tampa person posting…hm. I know there were more little red dots on Tampa at!

Well, anyway, I say the three of us could have a great time anyway! Neener neener neener to the folks from NYC, Columbus, and all those other highly-SDMBer-dense regions.

Michelle and eden together???
Tampa here I come!

Yeah, Mullinator, it was you I was talking about in my OP. Stephmon lives in Orlando too (last I heard, anyway), although I don’t think he frequents this board often (unless it is under a different name and I’m not aware of it).

eden, where in Tampa do you live?

Strainger, I would love to go to Atlanta. I was there for the Olympics and I thought it was beautiful. Maybe if eden can read a map (I cannot) we could both come up for a visit! Timing is difficult with my odd work schedule. But I would really love to meet some more of the REGS here. So far I have met Opal and Be Logical.

I’m in Lee County, but I’m not gonna get outta here anytime soon - when I go to college, we’ll talk again. :wink:

Michelle: I live in Westchase, which is off Hillsborough/Tampa Road near Oldsmar. And now I’m really curious…what animal hospital do you work in? I wonder if I’ve been there.

The irony for me of the Atlanta connection is that I was JUST THERE for software training…and it was really boring because after 4 pm I had nothing to do. No idea why contacting Atlantians (sp?) didn’t occur to me…

Frankie: all the way from Seattle?! Damn. Who knew we Florida girls had such pull?

I used to work at North Bay Animal and Bird Hospital, which is on Hillsborough and Memorial. Now I work at Florida Veterinary Specialists on Busch Blvd and Twin Lakes, in the Carrollwood area. If you are in Oldsmar, I think you are about 40 minutes away from where I live. I live near USF, right behind Univeristy Community Hospital.

AARGH! I think my dad died in that hospital. Not their fault.

I have been to North Bay, it’s the closest hospital to my house (right by my Publix!). I live maybe five minutes from there.

Takes me about 30 min. to get to Busch Gardens, so that sounds about right. Well! I think happy hour is in order!

Fer sure! Due to my exrememly hectic work schedule, I am only available on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. :slight_smile:

Actually, this week I am pretty busy, covering for someone on vacation. Otherwise, I really do have most of the week free.

Lemme know when and where. Mullinator, why don’t you come on over too?
