I wish I could come out to meet you guys, but given that it’s a 3 hour drive for me (without traffic) and I have an 8 AM class on Friday…not good.  If only this were on a Tuesday, Friday, or Saturday night.

OK, you can move me to a definite.

MHS, if you wind up coming, I’ll take L.A. Confidential and Batting off your hands.  I suppose if any of those Star Wars books are surprisingly good, I’d take them as well.  (Yeah, I know there are better things on there, it’s just what I’m likely to actually read.)  I have the Thrawn trilogy already, though.

Longtime lurker here. Can I come by on Thursday also? Is the Meet-Up at Tonic, on Seventh Ave.?

You may not. You must stand outside and wait for our signal.

Yes, yes it is.

And have just sort-of accepted 6:30 as a time? I’ve met most of the people coming, but for those who’ve not, we shouldn’t be hard to spot as a group, even in a sports bar.

My hair will act as a beacon unto the righteous. I will probably even be there a bit early.

I’ll be there for 6.30, also possibly earlier depending on what I’ve had to do during the day. Shaved head, hoop earring and dodgy Zapata ‘tache…

I may visit your fair city for a SABR regional Valentine’s Day afternoon.

Some of the later stuff, especially Pete Hill, intrigues me.

I shall be there: Pinstripe suit, blue shirt, purple tie, holding a drink.

Is this meet up still a go?

Nevermind. I see that it is! Purple tie? That should ward off the psychos!

I assume so, no one has given me any reason to think otherwise, so I will be there.

I’ll be there. I just didn’t want to be the only one there. It’s the time of the year when you end up watching PTI without the sound on if you’re at a bar alone. #### that! I don’t like that show WITH sound. It beats Sky sports news without the sound, I guess. Damn Limey-wannabe bars.

You ####### people, I get grief for the pink shirt, grief for the purple tie. Not a fashionable one among you.

Posted: 05 February 2009 10:33 PM   [ Ignore ]   [ # 45 ]

Wait until you see me. I am so, so not fashionable today.

I’m not fashionable, but I am sporting a pink shirt and purplish tie today.  I am meeting colleagues for drinks at 7 p.m. so I should arrive after 8 p.m.

Sorry I had to bail early. I only see the wife a couple evenings a week.

And, now, on to the next one and the one after that. Christopher Dial will be in town Tuesday afternoon (the 10th) and there’s some talk of something Saturday afternoon/evening (the 14th).
