just one, just one little one, okay? Pleeeeeeeeeeeez?
I just got approval for some geek courses, that necessitate my exposure to Outside influences. In other words, I’m gettin’ all-expense-paid expeditions to Vancouver in September and Edmonton in November.
I’d really really like to meet some Dopers while I’m Out.
All post-count evidence aside, I really am a (mildly) entertaining conversationalist, and all around Good Person To Know, honest. Scotticher will vouch for me, I’m sure. I can take a joke, and tell 'em, and the only way you’ll ever hear the tale of the Hells Angels VS Carcross, Yukon, is in person.
: Bambi eyes:
Yeah, I know it’s unbecoming of a Doper to grovel, (unless there’s sex involved), but I’m desperate. All these get-togethers, and I can’t afford to get to ANY of 'em.
Well, as much as I enjoy DopeFests, I’m thinking Canada in November is just friggin’ suicide for a slightly Southern boy like me. So, unfortunately, I will respectfully decline the invite. The sex we can discuss.
At the moment, I go whither The Company sends me, since I am usually Without Extra Funds. They choose to send me to the nearest location in which the required courses are available. I tried for SoCal, or even the Bay Area, but apparently it costs extra…and I haven’t seen my immigration certificate in ten years.
S’pose I should do something about that…
Unfortunately, Superdude, adorable though you are, we would only be able to discuss sex in the abstract. Mostly since my husband frowns on that sort of thing, and he has a most scary frown on top of that 6’2" frame…[sub]no, really. I DO have the proverbial large husband.[/sub] However, I might be in the market for a Trophy Husband in a couple years, got a CV?
lno, a mere 24-hour drive is as nothing, when you get to experience my wit, charm, and sparkling personality at the end of it. Of course, you are speaking to someone who has to drive almost that long to reach practically ANYWHERE. Heh. You like snow and cold? :evil grin: Feel free to come up here for a visit… January’s good…
Hey Tisiphone, it’s cool to hear about the classes. Any chance your Vancouver stint will be anywhere close to my birthday? (like I need an excuse to celebrate being yet another year older) By the way, just for reference purposes, my birthday is the 17th of September. Even if it’s not close, I’ll see what happens. However, I am booked on Sept. 21… I have a dear friend’s wedding and banquet to go to. Let me know about this!
S’alright, Tranquilis. I know how busy you are. Who knows, we may actually get to be on the same course sometime, eh?
Flamsterette, how coincidental! My course in Vancouver runs the 16th to the 20th of September. Shouldn’t be a problem to book me in the Friday before. We’ll discuss this further…
And Ginger, being as how you were a Calgarian/Northerner, I really do appreciate the true magnitude of that offer. Oh, by the way, check this comic strip out. It’s called True North, and it came out right about the time you and WeirdDave started to ramp up wedding plans. I found it absolutely hilarious. Dunno if the weird one will find it quite as amusing, though…
D’ya think these events, now that there’s at least two Dopers involved at each location, are worthy of their own threads, with like, descriptive titles and everything?

Tisiphone, I just looked at my calendar… you do realize that the Friday before is a Friday the 13[sup]th[/sup], right? cue spooky Twilight Zone-ish music Just kidding, it really shouldn’t be all THAT bad. Nothing ever really happens on that day… mostly, anyhow. Right? As you’ve said, we’ll discuss this later.
