New Get-together???
« on: May 04, 2004, 05:50:39 AM »
Well, Jeysie and I were talking last night and she gave me the link to all the NYC Audition pics!  Was wondering why I didn't know they existed!  Well, I then went on and said that I would have loved to have gone, but even if I had known about the auditions at the time, my mom would freak and I wouldn't be allowed to go (I hate living under my parents' roof sometimes).  Well, that got us on the conversation that maybe it's time for another get-together...but this time in Tennessee *angel face* -- hey, it would be the only way I could convince my mom to let me go on a weekend trip!  Sooo *looks around innocently* who's interested! lol

I dunno... New England's not good enough for me. ;P

Tennessee does sound fun, although I'm a bit strapped for cash right now. (Not that I ever have any money...)

Maybe we need regional parties, hee.

Peace & Luv, Liz

I LOVE NEW ENGLAND!  It's just that I wouldn't be able to convince my family to allow me to go there...especially when I'm trying to convince them to let me go to London next summer!  :suffer:

Oh....I see how it is.  You'd rather go to London than come visit Questie! :'( I'm gonna cry myself to sleep tonight!
Or just stash myself in your suitcase when you go!

Well, yeah!  No, I'm just kidding!  It's just that how am I supposed to convince my parents to let me go to London AND New England when my mom's still saying there's no way I can afford London and grad school??  And trust me, going to London will be a good cause...I'd be taking a class there...and might be able to meet a couple British people from the forum *angel smiley*

But I have been up in New England a couple of time...well, NYC in particular...I  <3 NYC!!  Don't know if I'd want to live there, but I LOVE it!

I've been to Nashville; went there my senior year of college for the Music City Bowl game, which we won. (GO BC!) (that would be Boston College, fyi...I was in the marching band)

I too am rather strapped for cash, btu have if y'all do get together. :)  

Yay New England!! Yay Boston especially!!  ;D ;D

I suppose if we did have a get together in New England, it would have to be in Boston....that's, you know, fairly centrally located.

Gotta love Nashville...gotta love the county north of Nashville more! (hmm, I wonder who lives there??)  It's gorgeous..."small" town (everyone complains about how small the town is, but I moved there from a town with 611 people...so I know SMALL!)  It would be awesome if there could be a get together....but I don't think people can go if they don't have a great excuse (like the one for the auditions!)...but who's to say we can't try!

Its times like this that I could do with a plane. And the money to run. And the lisence to fly it. Heh yeah theres no way I could afford to pay for fairs to America this summer, BA are a freking rip off and untill the cheap ass airways start to offer flights im rooted in europe...

Oh and Cat, tell your mom to grow up! You're in your 20's now, you're not 15!

NYC definitely isn't New England. NYC barely even qualifies as New York. (New York State is waaaaaay different.) It is indeed off in its own strange world.

Anyhoo. Western MA actually is a rather nice place to visit... it's living here that's the problem. :P Still, Boston is more interesting!

As for excuses... science fiction conventions are always good excuses... why hold your own party when you can hijack someone else's? ;) Unfortunately the only two cons I know of off-hand are Shore Leave in Hunt Valley, Maryland in July, and United Fan Con here in Springfield, MA in November. Never been to the latter, actually, but the former was lots of fun.

I don't suppose Questie or Katie know of any conventions near them? Or Koko, for that matter?

Peace & Luv, Liz

Cat, you're 20? I highly second what Alex said!! I had thought when you were saying they wouldn't let you that you were only in your teens or something. You are techinically beyond the age of making your own decisions, m'dear. Go right on ahead and travel if you want!

But Cat can't do that...she's a good girl. :P

And nope, nobody has conventions near me.  Although, we have excellent clam cakes and there's Del's Frozen Lemonade (and really, you haven't lived til you've had Del's).  Those are good excuses for visiting RI!

Yes, but the parking garages in Providence, at least, are evil creations from the depths of Hell. :P

And I have to admit that Koko is a bit old to be relying on the permission of her parents to travel. I've been doing my own thing since I was 16. (And I was moved out on my own when I was 20.)

Peace & Luv, Liz
