More notes for myself:

06-01 - 06-04: Sister, her husband ventidrip, and her friend L from college are in town for various conferences and vacations. Only firm plans are the Wild Animal Park on Thursday afternoon, then all four of us getting together for dinner that evening. I'm pushing for dinner Wednesday and Friday as well; I figure that we'll figure out most of the plans just a few hours before they happen...

06-08 - 06-09: Work trip to Dallas. I might be able to get away for a few hours that evening and hang out with my friends in the area, but it's likely that we'll try to do a social "get to know our counterparts" activity that evening.

06-10 - 06-12: Trip to Phoenix to see a concert Friday evening and hang out with friends all Saturday. We (deliriumdreams and I) might have to leave early Sunday to get decent fares, but other than that, should be massive fun.

06-17 - 06-24: My friend J from Seattle is visiting for a week, split between here and Phoenix. The tail end of the visit overlaps with other plans of mine, but we should have a great time the first weekend. He's promised to help me make it through my backlog of Bonny Doon wine club shipments...

06-19: Coworker getting married here in town.

06-23 - 06-26: S and T getting married in Chicago on the 25th. deliriumdreams and I are going up for Thursday through Sunday (I'm actually staying until Monday morning to get a better fare). Should be lots of fun; quite a few of the pod are going to be there.

07-04: A bunch of people are getting together in Denver (mostly at nirikrss's place, and intending to go to the Colorado Renaissance Faire in Larkspur). Very tempting to try to get J and the kiddos up there for that, as it will be huge fun for everyone. Logistics are a bit dicy, though... and the thought of driving back down to Albuquerque with five of us in a smallish vehicle is scary. Also worried that I might be all visited-out at that point...

I'll be going to Colorado 6/29 - 7/4 for Amtgard and other stuff. I'm planning on going to a goth club at least once, and the renfaire on the 3rd. Let me know if you'll be in town then and want to get together.

early july in colorado

A trip to Denver is looking more and more likely. Still need to make solid plans, though.

You should make sure to look up Joe while you're up there. I can give you some contact info if you don't already have it...

I'll let you know. Even if I don't make it, my friend Kevin (nirikrss) will likely be at the faire with his greyhounds, working at the greyhound adoption booth. He's a geek from LC, he'll appreciate the shout-out. :)

very busy!

I'm sort of jealous because I'm sure it doesn't take long of a drive to get to Las Vegas or Phoenix from where you are and here in orlando its about a 3 4 hour drive just to get out of the state.

Chicago is such a fun city. I could so live there if it wasn't for the cold and the wind.

I think I mentioned this in an earlier mail, but San Diego to Phoenix or Las Vegas is closer to 6 hours unless you drive really fast. I'm not that much of a fan of Vegas; I'm too conscious of being a consumerist whore when I'm there, and I can't relax enough to enjoy it. Phoenix has some nice features, but it's pretty much a blast furnace for the next three months, so my trips there will hopefully be few and far between...

Granted, I'm flying out this weekend, but that's prompted by a goth concert pimped by chancellor_d and (more importantly!) a chance to get together with deliriumdreams. Yay!

Chicago is such a fun city.

This will be my first visit. We might end up there again later this year, when it's a bit cooler, and we can spend some time with the couple getting married on this trip. (Since they'll be a wee bit distracted. :)
