    Hey! Chicago people!

    Hey! I know we usually have the same group of people, where are you! I will be down there for work either the first or second weekend in November, should I just jam pack my trip with work? Or are we getting together this year?

    Re: Hey! Chicago people!

    Any word out of Florida on a possible guest? Without that, skies that look like a Kodak grey card and lots of talk about food it just won't seem right.

    No plans in November at the moment. I'm interested - anyone else?

    Re: Hey! Chicago people!

    I would love to join you guys and gals again in the Windy City, but I don't think it's going to happen this year. I was just in Chicago about a month ago...

    All I can say is, I'll be in one of the big bronze shoes at Navy Pier sometime in November.

    You need to figure out when, and if you meet me there, fine. I'll buy you pizza...

    Not that Chicago "thick style" crap, but real New York pizza. I know a place...

    Great - had been thinking about when I could get back to NYC for some Lombardi's but this will be a whole lot easier. So yeah, we'll let you join us.

    It would be an honor. Let's hope the Finance Gods are smiling on me in a month...

    Oh, btw, Mr. Bass Man, I got a new signature. Name that tune and the band.

    Yeah, I know. Too easy... :idea:

    Dude, you make it too easy for me.

    Thing is, I'm pretty broke, so unless there's some sort of miracle in the next month or so, looks like I may have to skip this year.

    But, you never know. It's too soon to say for sure...

    When's the tree lighting this year?

    I'd like to say I'm in, and I think as long as I know the date far enough in advance I can make it, since I'm in charge of creating other people's schedules that month.
    Drink Coffee. Do stupid things faster with more energy.

    That's perfect! Can you do us a favor? Create schedules for everyone who's interested in being part of this and make sure we're all at the same place at the same time.

    With money...

    Thanks, that's good to know. So, if it turns out I can make it, that's definitely a weekend I won't go. Made that mistake a few times...

    Got it now... Actually I'm hanging it up at the end of the month - too many other fun things to do, and schedules always conflict. Speaking of schedules, when you're here we could go to China Town for Dim Sum on Sunday. A friend and I did that several months ago, but it's a ways from downtown - good eats and very inexpensive. Just an idea. Fah ra ra ra ra, ra ra ra ra.

    Yeah, Seb and I went there a few years back. Took the train. There's a great story behind it, one that brings up visions of Adventures in Babysitting...

    Sunday'd be tough, though, as I'd be flying out that afternoon...

    LOL! Funny how a well-timed insult can turn around a crappy day for an ex-New Yorker.

    Thanks for that...

    BTW, did you get the "finger pointing" portrait I emailed you?!? :thumbsup:

    I'm thinking the first or second weekend, because people always want Christmas cards. Those take time.

    You should send Chanukah cards instead. The deadline's a little more flexible with those... :ihih:

    1) Any time.

    2) Yes. Not my best modeling, but a definite improvement over earlier work.

    Either works for me as long as I'm not commiting to the card thing. I'll just stick with the good intentions, year after year, for now.
