Back to Chicago? I can dig it!
I've got people to disappoint, I got mistakes to make.
How can you believe that I'm not a waste of space?

I don't think bueller will be going.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

If I'm still living here and drive, I can probably pick up as many as one tall and two short people in the lower ontario area.

Wow, just realized I live less than 5 hours from Montreal! I want to go to carnival this year.

boiler and i are looking at a feb/march timeframe. venue will probably be at UIC again. next time i'm in town to visit boiler, his wife and the soon-to-be-new rugrat, we'll talk about possible other venues in case it looks like we're going to fill the one we used last time. otherwise, expect to find a place to stay close to campus.

Dibs on geniekid's clean dishes, and food also.

Also, I'll need you to put some towels in the dryer while I shower so they're nice and warm when I get out.

Don't forget to ask him to help you dry your back with the towel. If not you could miss a spot.

Now, I must acquire a chauffeur to transport me to the obviously fine establishment where this convention will be held. Will the convention be held at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago? Or perhaps the Trump International would be better suited to cater to us?

Oh, most definitely. I could not be caught dead drying myself like some measly peasant. It goes without saying that geniekid must dry me off.

Well, Chicago is an easy trip for me, but I dunno if you guys know what Chicago is like in Feb.?  Average temp is something like 24F, which is -4C.  Which is a "nice" day in Chicago in the winter.  But I'm not complaining.  I always wanted to get one of those black toes from frostbite.  I wonder if the really shatter if you hit them with a hammer?
