And where she stops, no one knows...

Last Thursday and Friday: Spent some time in Port. St. Lucie, across the state, setting up a computer network for a client. Met the new person in my life out there; she spent the night with me.

Her: You just love to torture yourself and everyone around you, don't you? (Yes, in a good way. Sometimes, the anticipation of a thing can make the consumation of that thing so much more intense...)

Saturday: PolyTampa Christmas party. Spent some more time with her and with a number of other friends, where we carried on a lively and spirited discussion on the merits of my plan to build a full-sized, working trebuchet, a piece of seige equipment used to destroy castle walls during the Middle Ages.

Her: I've changed sides. I agree with Kelly...you shouldn't build a trebuchet.
Me: You can't do that! You've already agreed to be my henchman.

After the party, she and her two significant others spent the night with kellyannc and I. And Kelly cooked breakfast for everyone...

Me: Bacon is one of the things that makes life worth living.
Her: I don't eat mammal.
Me: Yeah, but...it's bacon!

Sunday afternoon: bishop_henley and I discussed plans to attend AVN in January, the large yearly sex toy convention held in Las Vegas.

Her: AVN! I so want to go.
Him: Okay, but you won't get to see much of the show. I'm going to keep you in the booth and give you orders.

Sunday night: Photo shoot for the new Web site some friends and I are working on. Midnight nudity in busy downtown Tampa.

Security guard: You'll have to leave. No photography is permitted in this parking lot.
Him: Why, is this a SENSITIVE parking lot?

The next few weeks are going to be chaos, distilled, refined, and concentrated into its purest essence. Virginia in two weeks, for obligatory visits to the inlaws, then on to San Francisco on January 4th, and Las Vegas (if all goes well) on January 9. Miami in the end of January. Meetings, business, parties, and other ancillary chaos-related accessories between now and then.

Life should be lived to its fullest. All things to excess. Moderation is for monks.

But you're so busy! When are we going to hang out for wine and cheese? *pout*

And I thought MY weekend was decadent. Heh. :-D

What a great life you have. No sign of corporate anality and a healthy distance from inlaws. And travel! I envy thee. :)

I'm not much for wine and cheese; how 'bout hot chocolate and Truffles? (You live in Orlando, right? We're over in Tampa; you should stop by and visit some time; kellyannc would love to cook for you!)

The travel is not really as exciting as it sounds. No matter how exotic the locale, the inside of one convention center looks pretty much like the inside of another.

Re:
I had mentioned some sort of food-oriented get-together I'd like to plan at my house once, and I believe you responded saying that you'd be up for it. I could've sworn it was my wine and cheese idea... but hot cocoa and truffles (got any pigs?) works for me!

I would like to visit sometime. In fact I wouldn't mind attending a PolyTampa thingie with you guys. Have you outgrown Ybor City yet?

if kellyannc cooks for me, I would hope I'd get the honor of helping. I love to cook.

At least there's the scenery involved in the commute to the convention center!

Funny you should mention PolyTampa and Ybor. We are hosting PolyTampa this coming Sunday, the 15th (information is here), and we're tentatively planning a trip to Ybor Friday, the 13th. Shall we save space for you?

Re:
I'm all booked up until the 15th, sadly (out-of-town friend visiting)... when's the next one?

Typically (not always), they're on the third Sunday of the month. I doubt very much I'll be at January's meeting, however.

Then I'll shoot for February. I really do want to check it out.

As it turns out, kellyannc and I will be able to make January's meeting after all! It's scheduled to be held on January 19.

Re:
Yay! *puts it on my calendar*

Want to make an afternoon of it? What do you normally do before a meeting?

Sounds good to me! We don't usually have any plans before the meetings, so we're pretty flexible.

My uncle lives in Port St. Lucie.

About the Trebuchant: You can build it and role-play Monty Python. Prepare to be attacked, Princess BigTits. LMAO! =)

heh, meat is good!

Can people get naked in public? Don't they have any perverted laws like "indecent exposure" or some such bullshit?

Are you going to go to MWSF? Cool!

"Moderation is for monks." Yep.

kellyannc and I have reached a compromise on the trebuchet; she'll let me build a scale model, so long as the throwing arm is no longer than sixteen inches. I won't be able to crush the neighbor's house with it, or toss cars around trhe neighborhood, but oh well...

People can always get naked in public--just not legally. So it goes something like this:

Okay, nobody's looking, slip off the trenchcoat, quick! You stand over there, and you stand over there, and nobody can see from the street...

I'll be at MacWorld SF until the last day, when it looks like I'll be hoping a shittle to Las Vegas for AVN. So in three weeks I'll be at a computer convention, then a sex toy convention, then a graphic arts convention...that ought to be good for a little culture shock. It'll probably make packing a bit tricky, too.

Yes, I said you can build one that can toss dice.

hehe

If that happened here, traffic would stop and you would find a huge crowd within seconds...not that it happens. Hmm...

What graphic arts convention? Seybold?

Same thing happens here; that's why we had to be careful that nobody saw is. :)

"What graphic arts convention? Seybold?"

Nope; I'm not going to make Seybold this year. Graphics of the Americas.
