Mark won't listen because he is filled with irrational hate but somebody film this stuff and put it online! Harlan is working his sweet little tail off.

You know how I need my free stuff. Creative loafing is a gas.

Diane - I think you should hook up with Dima. She's a wonderful person and I want to make sure someone's watching out for her at the con. :wink:
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Steve, I would love to hook up with Dima.
Dima, I will be getting there Fri, late morning or afternoon. I think I am helping Jon with registration for a bit but then, maybe we could meet for food and coffee? my e-mail is DianeBartels99@comcast.net.

Jon Manzo, my Paypal account and/or my bank have crossed their wires somehow. Or I am just stooopid! Anyway, I will get the payment to you for my banquet ticket by tomorrow. My nephew Vinnie and my brother Dave are coming up with me. Vince wants to go to U of W so he and Dave are going to prowl Madison while I am busy. But they don't need banquet tickets. Thanks Jon.

Aww, thank you for thinking of me Steve, that's sweet of you. Although I was thinking more along the lines of company that someone to look out for me ;) I do wish you were able to come out though...

Diane, I would love to meet up. So far I'm planning to get there Saturday morning. I'll e-mail you my phone number so we can connect.

Keeney,

I still will bet that you end up leaving late morning like we are, arriving late afternoon

Hope you are feeling better, bubba

If I don't feel any better than I do today I'm bailing on this one. I'll give this infection 24 hours.

A chest infection, what? I am concerned, Keeney, beyond our ire-joshing.

I have this mysterious cough that goes on around October, lasts about a month, then goes away. Has happened every year for about five years straight. I don't have chronic bronchitus. Odd.

To anyone going to Madcon

Someone give Harlan some greetings for me. I really wish I could be there and meet him in the flesh.
