NY-NJ-CN TRI-STATE CHAPTER PARTY AT MORAN'S LIVE THREAD
Tri-State Chapter ^ | 12-28-2002 | Cacique

Posted on 12/28/2002 9:45:35 AM PST by Cacique

I am off to Moran's to join the rest of the chapter in welcoming MadIvan to New York.

I will attempt to post using my pocket PC and my wireless modem as we haven't arranged for a modem connection with a laptop there is no sense on lugging around the extra weight in addition to my camera and camcoder.

We will try to upload some digital pictures as the party is progressing and hope that AT&T has a CDPD node nearby to transmit.

Barring that, we will continue the thread once we get home.

DC Chapter ping!

I just spoke briefly with kristinn. He, Doctor Raoul, GunsareOK, Ligeia, and bmwcyle are there representing the DC Chapter and have met MadIvan, Dutchy, RaceBannon and other members of the NY-NJ-CN Tri-State Chapter (sorry, I don't have the rollcall for the party). Kristinn said some of them toured Ground Zero before the party and they are now having a great time.

I'm sad that I couldn't make it to meet MadIvan and the Tri-State Chapter members; but I know they are having a fantastic time and the after-action report and pictures will be well worth waiting to read.

We have arrived safely. Some 50 people are here. With luck I will find a regular phone line. The wireless modem is slow as hell.

MadIvan has arrived safely. Says hello to all.

Connection is too slow to upload pictures. That will have to wait till I get home.

Kristin is giving a longwinded speech as I write this.

Hey! Just got off the phone to Ivan...he just told me he had the most wonderful time, and said that you all are a really lovely bunch.

I, of course, don't believe a word of that! ;-)

I tried to give you a call using my cell, but my cell plan- it turns out- doesn't allow for international calls. dead was there too.

Just have to wait for me to visit Ireland again, I guess. Though I've now got you're number lodged in my cell. ha ha.

Yup! Ivan told me that! *S* And thanks for trying to call. I would have tried Ivan's cell phone, but seemingly the GSM network isn't too hectic in the US :-(

Umm, not quite sure at the moment. Although, having made a couple of trips to Canada earlier this year..and not having been in the US for a couple of years, I'm starting to get the itch to go back to NYC. (All those Broadway shows!!! *S*).

If I can get a cheap flight I'd be there next week. (My vacation days for 2003 kick in in January! *L*). I'll keep y'all posted :-)

I'd so love it!! :-)

As a former actor...I'm sure I could dress up and whup along.

Only prob is...Hillary might hit on me.

Should I shave beforehand?

If you want Hillary to hit on you? I doubt bearded ladies are beyond her. She already lives in a freak circus! *L*

I'll let everyone tell who they are. :)

I've also been very busy "punching up" these pics in Photoshop (darkly lit room with lots of green in the background) and am going to the gym after I finish this!
