::breathe:breathe:: I'm pretty darn excited.

We're gonna try and hook up for a drink or twelve two over the week-end, yes?

I bet. I would be. *grin*

No, I'm not going. There's just no way. I've close to maxed out my credit card, and I just can't justify asking to make my limit higher. Maybe next year, if they're still doing it? In the meantime, I have to figure out how to A.) live considerably less high on the hog than I have been, in terms of just getting myself whatever little toy I want, and B.) pay down the credit card without depriving myself so much that I go buy freakin' Tahiti or something. So--even if I was bad and upped my limit and splurged, I wouldn't enjoy myself--I'd be too busy worrying about the fact that I couldn't really pay for it.

But next year! And you guys have a great time. I expect photos and stories and stuff...

I'm sorry to read that you're not going.
We'll definitely need to get you up here or me down there this summer for a visit.

I applaud your decision to get your finances in order over going crazy (like I'm doing) with this expensive week-end.

I hope I get a couple of decent photos during the week-end.
and hopefully a few anecdotes to share.

I'm looking forward to visiting, definitely. I don't know if you are still thinking about the show, but even if that won't work out, I actually have two three-day weekends off in late May--Memorial Day, of course. But--it's the opera. We get Wagner's birthday off, too. Seriously. Pretty funny, huh? So I have the 24th off and the 31st. Which makes either of those weekends good for road-tripping. Wonder if I need to finally get a passport. Last time they were OK with my birth certificate, but who knows...

May 24th - We have that day off here too.
Wanna come out and play for the week-end?
We'll hang out in my apartment or do stuff or something. Lemme know.

Sucks, man. I'm on call all weekend the 22nd-24th--just found out a couple days ago. So, yeah, I have a three-day weekend, but I can't leave town. What's Memorial Day (the following weekend) look like for you guys? I was hoping not to be doing a bunch of driving on Memorial Day weekend, because it's always, crazed, but I can't get out the on-call thing.

D'oh. The following is just a regular work week up here.

Dang. This sucks. I'm so annoyed that we have a "three-day-weekend" that's in the middle of a show, so nobody really gets the time off. It's Wagner's freakin' birthday, man, nobody cares when it really was, give it to us after the show closes.

Should we shoot for later in the summer? What do you think? Or try for a shorter visit?

I'll look through my calendar and school schedule and see when the next long week-end is. And then see if any of them hook up with a U.S. holiday.

We'll work something out!

Want a serving of irony?
I'm working the May long week-end. :o\
I would have had to cancel. ::glares at school::

Gonna scan through my calendar tonight. We may have to make it a short one. Or maybe book off a *cough* sick day *cough*

Ahhh! It's the thread that wouldn't die! *grin* A short one would be OK--it's not like the drive is that long. And later in the summer, I'll have vacation days again. Right now, I think I have about three hours. But they'll keep accruing...

I'm in and out of town a couple of times this summer - one of them being for CFTC - so late summer would be good for me too.

Cool! And then I can hear CFTC stories in person, complete with squee! and hand-waving gestures and stuff.

Have you been talking to my friends? ::eyes suspiciously:: sitting firmly on hands
chrismm
May. 22nd, 2004 10:10 am (UTC)
ahahahahahaa! No. Well, not about that, anyway. *grins evil-ly* I just assume that hand-waving gestures would be a required portion of any such stories. Just human nature, I would think.

LOL. I think I'd stutter if I didn't talk with my hands. I'm crossing my fingers that I get a handful of decent pictures out of the weekend.

EEEEEEEEEEE!

Am I going to run into you there?!

Is your eye better?

You're so sweet for asking. The bleeding has stopped but the 'octopus' remains a huge annoyance. It's there for good but might shrink a little with time.
*smooch* thanks so much for asking!!

Indeed, I'll be there! Wheeee~
