Okay, folks, don your creative persona & be a problem solver!  :biggrin:

September 27-28? It's Nero's birthday. I would also like to have Aurora there, after all she is my girlfriend :wink: .

Fresco - no problem with the kids/relatives/others. I'm bringing my kids along too. My parents might even be able to babysit for you. We have a great tradition of being especially welcoming to relatives/spouses/significant others.

This is true, not Midwestern aren't-we-so-darn-swell posturing. And truthfully, come to think of it, I haven't seen such a charming bunch of kiddies (and parents, spouses and SOs) in a long time.

The September date is, as far as I can see, open for me. And think of this, Event Planners: We could do a joint (well...you know what I mean) birthday party for guajolote and Nero, two of the hardiest partiers, and coolest people around.

I can work with any date except the 11th, because I intend to make my first real foray south of the Mason-Dixon line.

Varmint: I don't have a yellow polo shirt. Is pig ever picked by women in LBDs?

Any weekend is fine; we have no travel plans until at least November. :sad:

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

September's mostly a nightmare for me, but I could do possibly do the 12-14 or 26-28.  All depends on when the house buying/move happens.

No September for me.

Noise is music. All else is food.

My attempt at dictatorship failed. We've entered Egullet Scheduling Hell (ESH). Once you start down the road to ESH, there's little hope. :sad:

Maybe we should start the vote over w/ 4 dates? Vote for whichever ones you can make? Most votes wins. We'll give Dawn a double vote because she's the boss.

No, Dean, You Gotta Dictate, Big Guy.

Post them dates.

Matthew took over the Palace (with his chalice) in a bloodless coup. I am currently in exile.

G., you shoulda seen it coming, your sig line and all... Matthew's been known to exile folks for dress code violations. :smile:

So Matthew il Magnifico: Lay it down.

"She's the boss..."

No way, man. I'm not the boss...

I'm THE HAMMER. :raz:

BUT SERIOUSLY, FOLKS...

I'm not the boss of you (plural). It's the code of the sandbox, and, well, it works for me.

Speaking from the heart, as Guaj's :wub: girlfriend, I cannot -- will not -- take two votes. Out of the question.

I've stirred this pot enough already, and the stew isn't close to done. A suggestion of posting available dates followed by a vote gets my vote (1).

Lay it out. I'm more of a Jimmy Carville kinda guy. I'll stay on the edges. You get the spotlight, my friend. :smile:

Four dates. Name them.

Aurora gets a two-fer.

Carry on.

OK, but I thought the U-Roy / Curtis reference might convince you.

We'll start over. Please pick any weekends that you CAN make it. The weekend with the most "YES" votes wins.

September 19-21

September 26-28

October 3-5

October 17-19

My votes are:

September 19-21 : YES

Aurora, take the two-fer.

And we better watch our metaphors.  If I'm Carville, G is Bill, & uhhhhh, girlfriend, you're . . .

Gennifer. If given a choice.

And where is "Hilary?"

She should also vote, or is this a vast Midwestern consipracy? Ever silent and strong. No doubt she will go on to moderate the NY board.
