Personally I can't wait there are several workshops that I am looking forward to. Also looking forward to being with good people who understand me.

Brother I am uber conflicted; the pesky 'me' that I am doesn't now which response mechanism to utilize: flight, fight or freeze. Part of me wants to barf, but another part is pregnant with anticipation. I'll just be glad when I get there so this war of tensions subsides. See you later!

Free beer, a $99 a night suite in Manhattan. You are doing quite well for yourself LOL

Ron,
The response mechanism you should utilize is a no brainer, Flight. As in take a flight from Pittsburgh to New York and go to the conference LOL

All you have to do is contact WalkingSouth and put up an announcement of the change in the Male Survivor Public section for a few days. This can only be done once.

true, but it can't be done arbitrarily; there has to be a very good reason, such as in your case.

anyway, i'm definitely getting on that plane, so the flight is covered. i hope it's not too cold or i may freeze. on the other hand, until i find a reason to fight, i'll keep that option last on the list. wink

Free airline fare and free beer too!!! Only problem is that I have to go through Midway Airport in Chicago so it will be another white-knuckler on the landing there. That is what the free beer is for. Speaking of short runways, Laguardia is pretty short too. Then it is a cab to my hotel unless I want to wait around for Super Shuttle. At least I get to make some cab driver happy!!!

What Ron says is quite true. I don't wanna be inundated with requests for name changes. Plenty to do around here without adding to the work load! Now where's my hammer and chisel? wink

Aww poop John! cry

I was going to request a name change to:

Antidisestablishmentarianism

That wouldn't have added too much would it? grin

I'll shut up now...

Don't worry Mark, they only overshoot the runway when it snows at Midway LOL. You'll be fine. Last Major incident involving midway was 5 years ago during a bad snowstorm and the time before that was 1976.
