    Alan, Jimmy - you're welcome.

    Jimmy, it's fine if you want to come by in the afternoon. I'll keep the MP3 player on my desk so it doesn't get lost.

    i got a few crappy snaps!

    Robin, i've suggested to my friends that we go for a class at NewsGirls. but, if i get a place in the east end, i'll probably just start going on my own (and see you there!). thanks again.
    also, my email address is ------------- @ gmail, and i'm totally serious about web design.

    Florence, thanks for the recommendations about photo critique! i entered a shot in the Delete Me group today, and am waiting for the cuntiness to roll.
    (also, the silhouette is me! ahhh, nostalgia. i wanted to add to the "CBC doesn't pay their sources" conversation that Kowalski was interviewed for an urban-exploration feature, and the interviewer was apparently a huge imbecile, and treated it as though the participants actually *wanted* news coverage and should be trying to prove themselves worthy.)

    @Greasemonkey & Mrs. Greasemonkey: Thanks for having us! Had much fun :)

    @oldhat: Awesome - thanks!

    @allana: Good luck!

    @All: Glad to meet you all again (or for the first time!)

    Here are a few of my shots:

    Wow, uh...the camera definitely did NOT love me that night. Jeez.

    @FC - always a pleasure.

    I still have a bunch of lost property - a pair of shades, some mounted sepia photos from WW1, various comics.

    @oldhat you do not look bad! I actually think the pic's rather charming. Old Rasputin should be proud.

    @Greasemonkey - i believe the photos are Mister Hex's.

    YES, THEY ARE. Grease, your lovely lady wife (to whom I probably owe great apologies, for some reason or another) was going to scan them for me so I can get copies and show them to an archivist and not get arrested.

    The comics are also, obviously MINE.

    First, let me say I had a GREAT time. And also that I apologize to you all for even showing up.

    DJ: I'm sorry I ribbed you about being y'all.
    Jimmy: I'm sorry I thought you and your friend were cops. It was the potato salad talking.
    Allana : I wish I'd gotten a chance to talk to you more before I turned into ... whatever I apparently turned into. (IT WAS THE ULTIMATE VERSION OF MYSELF!) Also, the potato salad.
    Lucien : ... sorry I'm an asshole ... ? We cool, right? You ain't said nothin' yet.
    Oldhat : I'm sorry I can't possibly be stopped by being grabbed by the neck. (OH, IF ONLY IT WERE THAT EASY!!!) And you ARE Big Barda LeBlanc, in my eyes, now and forever. And you can beat me up ALL YOU LIKE and I totally won't be happy about that. (Tee hee ...) Please don't actually beat me up. My throat is fine but I can't take much more like that. No wonder I was thirsty the next day.
    Alan Tyson : I hope you spelled me name correctly in the report. Also, excellent to meet you, sir. Truly, you are a credit to your race of Americanisms. And please don't think I'm a commie or a pugilist, okay? BECAUSE I AIN'T.

    I'll be better the next time (if there IS a next time, for a mutant like me) and I'm working on finding us a venue more suitable to our ... particularness. (Might take a month so September, I think, might be Hex-Style.)

    Holy crap, Rasputin booze. What's it officially called? And does it taste good enough for me to run over to Beers of the World?

    Also, I wish so much I could have gone! My friend who was supposed to come over for the weekend stood me up! Grah!

    If you guys have a late August gathering, I might not be too moon-faced (due to tooth surgery) to attend! I will tell my boyfriend it can be his anniversary gift to me to take me up :D

    @diello: The beer is called Old Rasputin Imperial Stout, and I think it's pretty darn tasty!

    If there is another gathering soon, depending on what my financial situation is at the time, my previous offer of ride-osity still stands, for you and your beau.

    @Mister Hex: Well, nobody's perfect ;p

    @Hex - we cool. No apologies necessary, you were your normal entertaining self. I'll remind my wife about scanning those photos. Check your email.

    @Diello - Late August may be a go.

    @ Grease - WHEW. (I'm normally entertaining ...? Jeez. You call THAT entertaining? Barda almost killed me.)

    Thanks again, dude. You the best.*

    *PS - I'm in a sleazy internet cafe just blocks from yer house. Heh.

    Oh, jeez, you people. You're all in a very special class of HOT, and you're fooling yourselves to think otherwise.

    Now, me on the other hand... well, I look exactly like how I ought to considering the drive I'd just finished :p
  6.  (9948.117)
    @Oldhat - I checked the name of the place with the horseradish cheddar again, and it's ST JAMESTOWN STEAK & CHOPS. They're at 516 Parliament.
    • CommentTimeJul 20th 2011
    Alan, that sweat-glisten on your forehead was well-deserved. You worked for our love, man.
    Patrick, I'd hang out with you again any day, anytime. You're clearly a mobile party.
    Robin, you should know by now that the only way to escape documentation of your existence is to bring your camera and then hide behind it.

    Also, may I propose a hangout/gaming fiasco at snakes and lattes before the drunkening begins next time? I can't tell you how cranky I am about still not having gone there.

    been offline until now, pretty much...great time was had by me, and it seems like by worries mister hex, we're cool as ever, i don't remember having any real problems with anything, except that i should have brought more beer...until next time all....
  7.  (9948.120)
    @Lucien More beer? really? wow!
    @Robin - you look great, really
    @ Alan, still loving that tie
    @FC - great shots, usually don't like photos of myself but that one of me leaning back with my wife looking on is quite nice.
    The shot of junglejim though...that is a work of art.
    @ Hex....I wasn't kidding about that documentary. I'm starting work on a series of shorts on people in Toronto, and if you are open to it, we need to talk.

    I had an amazingly good time, though I didn't talk to half of you nearly enough.
    apologies to allana for tricking her into a conversation that started about writing but turned to Batman. Next time, I'll try to lower the nerdity (though it's hard not to talk comics when Hex is in the room, the man knows about things like King Solomon's Frogs, which no one else I have ever met does.)
