    Works for me...but encountering resistance from wife. I should be able to overcome this. Craving anything in particular?
    There's a smoothie joint near the Five Guys where we first met that I've heard good reports on...LMK.

    We're in business. Five Guys Columbia (or in that specific vicinity) 11AM today. Dobbin Rd, not the mall. By Walmart/Target/TRU/Ross. Short notice but everyone is welcome.

    Sorry to have missed everyone. I just logged on...11:30am. And the streaming video of Dr Who is on at noon...I hope. Spent an hour this morning watching BBC news waiting for the show, then found out that the guy on Facebook ment 12pm not 12am...yawn... I found something for the girls. Hope to get it to you sometime!

    I haven't had as much energy to relentlessly promote these things as I did in times past...at any rate it's always refreshing.
    *ponders something about renaissance festival*...

    Missed everyone too. Slag it all. :-( But I'm feeling kind of ill today anyway so it's probably for the best.

    Why don't we throw some dates out for October? Weekends are (consults calendar) October 1-2, 8-9, 15-16, 22-23, and 29-30. On most Saturdays I'm personally out of commission until later in the evening...that shouldn't influence anyone else, of course.

    The last weekend of the month is out for me since it's close enough to Halloween that I'll probably be dressing up the girls and parading them around...somewhere.

    Had a great time with you guys as always. Nez, thanks for the goods!
    Who, sent you the links I told you about. My October free time is all over the place. See what major votes and I'll try to admit.

    Is anyone planning on hitting the NJCC on the 8th or 9th next month? I doubt I'll be able to swing it this time around but it was a good time (especially when followed by a detour through Philly for lunch). :drool: 
    The closer I read the tea leaves on this end the more it looks like early October is very bad from a work point of view. How do people feel about mid-October?

    good luck with sales, sportin. Did you ever sell that master sword (if that's what it's called)?
    Early October is officially f*cked for me. How's 10/22 or 10/23 sound?
    I have a complete set of Dreamwave G1 More Than Meets the Eye available cheap if anyone wants one. I have a lot of stuff that's in storage or gathering dust that I'll be inclined to get rid of, too....but who the hell knows how long it will take for me to find and catalog and take pictures of it....Movie stuff, mostly, some a/e/c, g1 reissues, that sort of thing.

    I may be available for either of those dates. Will keep them in mind. If there's large enough of a show up, you can bring your stuff to sell. I been meaning to do that. Just need more people to show up to make it worth it to haul my junk out...

    Most of the time we meet out in Columbia, MD as its the middle ground for most people that come.

    Nov 5th is out for me. You guys have fun if you decide to meet.
