10:35 pm - Huh

[19:59] unsays: hello
[19:59] Corinthian: Who is this?
[19:59] unsays: you are on my buddy list from forever ago.
[20:00] Corinthian: That doesn't really tell me who you are though.
[20:00] unsays: so i am trying to figure it out. a wizard press chat person from like... 9 yrs ago?
[20:00] Corinthian: That would be me.
[20:01] Corinthian: Who were you in Wizard Press?
[20:01] unsays: i'm amanda, and i think youre bob, right?
[20:01] Corinthian: Ah, yes. That would be me, and I remember you.
[20:01] unsays: so many things. i was 14 or something.
[20:01] Corinthian: It was a long time ago, for sure.
[20:01] unsays: meatcabnt might ring the most bells.
[20:01] Corinthian: Yep, I remember you!@
[20:02] Corinthian: Creamylung too, I think.
[20:02] unsays: ha, yes.
[20:02] Corinthian: Very classy.
[20:02] unsays: totally
[20:02] Corinthian: Not that I was much better, but it's kind of funny to look at in retrospect.
[20:02] unsays: i know it's weird and perhaps pointless to IM folks of yore, but i figured you might be up for it
[20:03] Corinthian: Eh, I'm just watching a bad movie and randomly surfing the web at the moment.
[20:03] unsays: plus a dude with the same screen name form so long ago...? he'd remember, i bet.
[20:04] unsays: which movie?
[20:05] Corinthian: Commando. It is on AMC. One of Schwarzanagger's worst/best.
[20:05] unsays: how are you doing this holiday eve?
[20:06] Corinthian: I'm doing okay. I've had better day-before-thanksgivings, but I've probably had worse too. I'm happy there's no work tomorrow, but it doesn't look like there will be a real family dinner this year on either side, and that is a little disappointing.
[20:07] Corinthian: And you?>
[20:09] unsays: similar position, i suppose. we're actually eating out this time around. i think it's even a buffet... unheard of!
[20:09] unsays: what do you do?
[20:09] unsays: for a living, that is (if i may ask)
[20:10] Corinthian: I work as a vault teller at a bank. It isn't all that prestigious, but I own my own house and make enough money to live comfortably, so I am not entirely unhappy with it.
[20:11] unsays: i've never been one to be driven by prestige. sounds like your priorities are just about right.
[20:11] unsays: i quit my job just yesterday, actually.
[20:11] unsays: that was the official last day, anyway.
[20:12] Corinthian: Wow. Were you just unhappy with it, or were you going to do something different?
[20:14] unsays: i dont think it was a rash decision, but aloy of people probably wouldn't have minded the job. i just never was to settle in, i guess... needed a (permanent) breather.
[20:14] unsays: i am a bit rusty with the typing, as you may notice
[20:15] Corinthian: No worries. What did do you?
[20:17] unsays: office shit. i worked for a company that makes supplemental curicculum for public schools. i basically printed and put the materials together and shipped it off, etc. unchallenging, god awful-boring but decently paying.
[20:19] Corinthian: I can see that. I can also see where it might grate on you after a while.
[20:19] unsays: have you kept in touch with any of our old friends?
[20:20] Corinthian: Sure. I talk to most of them on a semi-regular basis.
[20:21] unsays: that's interesting... for some reason i've been thinking about the people i used to talk so much to.
[20:22] unsays: probably cause i spent my formative years engulfed in chat
[20:22] unsays: which was pretty enjoyable for the most part, i must say
[20:22] Corinthian: Yep. As did I, really. There are many beliefs I hold dear that I probably credit to learning or at least developing through that chat.
[20:25] unsays: yeah, i haven't really come across a network of brilliant, hilarious and accepting people quite like you guys in the years since
[20:26] unsays: so, i saw your name and figured i'd extend a greeting. you were always an amiable chap
[20:27] Corinthian: It is true. I was voted "most likely to be amiable" in my high school yerabook.
[20:29] Corinthian: I really can't remember the last time I talked with you, honestly. You left extremely quickly and without warning, and you came back once or twice over the span of a few years, and that was really it.
[20:32] unsays: yeah, it's been years n' years. i got the feeling back then that i may have been wearing thin on a few "alphas," but of course my memory is vague. that could have been why i shrunk off.
[20:32] Corinthian: It is possible. I don't really remember.
[20:35] unsays: thanks for chatting it up with me a bit, bob. i'll drop by in another decade... sound good?
[20:36] Corinthian: Works for me!
[20:36] unsays: i guess i was just poking you with a stick... "is he alive???"
[20:36] unsays: anyway, see ya.. happy non-feasting tomorrow!
[20:36] Corinthian: Haha. I am alive! Same to you. Don't be a stranger.

1:44 am - SD (again)

I know I said I wasn't going to go this year, but I have come into a large sum of money. I still can't get a hotel though. Anyone that has a room thats willing to let me stay there with them let me know. I can send money beforehand or pay in person. I want to get there wednesday the 19th and leave monday the 24th in the morning. But I will work around what I can get. If you can help me out IM me at TonyChuppa@aol.com or reply here. Thanks!

Hotels open up February 15th. I plan on getting a room that day. Whoever's going I'd like to decide on a hotel to shoot for first, then maybe a second or third choice also. It'd be so much better to all be at the same place. Let me know.

I think everyone should list when they intend to fly in and out of San Diego, and how many hotel rooms they have reserved and where. Myself, I was considering flying in on the 13th and leaving the 18th, but I don't have tickets yet. I was hoping to see what you all had planned. Oh, and who's going, anyway?

11:51 pm - SD

Hey I got my badge and plane tickests for SD. I'll be getting there Wednesday late morning and leaving Sunday early afternoon. I just checked for hotels and theres still like nothing. Who actually has a reservation? I know Dana said she had the two rooms reserved but is that still good to go or has anything changed? Or has anyone else got anything? Let me know. I still don't know who all is still going either. Thanks!

i don't mean to freak anybody out, but hotel reservations for sd through the con website started yesterday and it seems that almost everything is already booked.

need i mention the con isn't even for another SEVEN months?! brutal, that is.

i was gonna make fun of all the nerds who planned that far ahead but alas, i am one of them.
anyway, i was thinking we could all try and stay at the same hotel this year. (my mama always said the less drunken stumbling home one has to do = less chance of getting shanked by a homeless person.)

5:26 pm - SD

I might get a chance to go to SD this summer but I had questions.
I need to know :

1. When is it? The actual days and stuff.
2. How do you get in the convention? I heard people talk about a pass or something before.
3. Are there alot of hotels close, like walking distance?

And whos going or planning to? and where are you guys staying. If I go I wanna stay at the same place or close by. Thanks!

NO!!! This is EXACTLY what Professor Xavier fought to protect.. Only now to be dashed to pieces by a conniving company in cahoots with a judge. Where is justice?

My world is in shambles.
