So I lied twice? I'm a big fat liar. LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR!
Mark's door code is 030, if you show late.
So, I lied? Check list finished except brushing teeth. (I burnt my mouth a
couple days ago) Damn it. I have the cell and everything is packed away in
the car. Let's go to Seattle! Mark is really jazzed about this whole thing
and he's going all out for all of us. I didn't have time to find a Tangram
logo and print it out, but we will have something cool on the door. ;-)
Who says Auburn VO isn't active?
I'm now heading out. Reach me on the cell phone. Last update until tomorrow. :-)
Ian is attending! Hmm, I wonder where Summer will be tonight?
Okay, I've written up a script so we can post our VMU files while we're at
Be polite and don't upload your own VMS stuff while we are. I'll
be keeping track, so it won't really hurt anything, except it'll be darn
rude. I'll be wrapping the upload stuff into DCDL later so people can have
their own contributed sections on VOA.
oh, and one more thing:
According to Mark, it's going to be packed. The plan is we all meet up at Gameworks at 3pm. Mark meets up with us at 3:45pm, and we (him and I) head over to his house to clean it up before-hand and grab the equipment from my Grandmother's. (if someone drives in, a car would be nice?) We then head back to Gameworks and everyone comes with us to go play the night away.
"should i get beer?" That is the question...
We're going 'til whenever, baby! It's confirmed that 1-2 people can crash over there too, so I won't be using my crashing privledges to make way for someone who might need them.
Can't control our women. ;-) Apparently Ian made a big impression on the lady-folk of Gathering #1. My Sister has been spreading around rumours; our triplet of terror seem to want to "jump [Ian's] bones." Of course, the bad news of Ian not being able to go, our ladies don't seem to want to attend... or rather, will be showing up fashionably late. Jessica seems to want to flex her newly developed VO skillZ though.
I'm not providing food this time. I'm too poor from the last encounter. Ex: I'll see what I can swing, but don't expect 40 pizzas. ;-)
I'm getting into town early to take care of equipment and arrangements. If you want to contact me for information, use the cell phone number provided above. I might even be on AIM (H8acker) so you can message me there.
For all those driving into town, here's a bit o' information! First off, there is a damn damn damn cheap parking area less than a block from the Lowell. It's a little east (up hill) on the corner of 8th and Seneca. $4 for the day and $4 overnight; max of $8 if you come early for Gameworks time. As for crashing arrangements, Mark hasn't gotten back to me but I know I and my family will have emergency arrangements for ourselves at our nearby Grandmothers' apartment. In no way shape or form am I implying that anyone else can stay there. wink wink
Well, Mark hasn't confirmed a time. I just spent the night wandering around Seattle trying to the find the Lowell when suddenly I realized I attended a house-warming party there a few months ago! D'oh! Well, I know all about the place, and for those having problems (or just want to get a little quality cabinet gaming time in), I'm going to be at Gameworks at 3pm. You can meet up with me (and probably others) there.
Address is posted. You can figure it out. Hmm, I guess I'm going to have to arrange special transportation in. I need to bring two monitors. That's the way life goes!
We got a link cable and extra sticks thanks to James! It looks like we'll be over-hardwared again. This is something I'm not complaining about.
I was thinking, parking will definately be an interesting issue. When we had it in Maple Valley, it was easy because the house had lots of parking. However, Seattle is a different situation entirely. I'll probably either head in via bus or catch a ride with Sam and bury the vehicle in the secret free parking zone near International Station. For those who know Seattle, underneath the I-90 and I-5 interchange is free parking. You can walk towards Seattle and run right into the International District Station and take a bus to Westlake. From there, Gameworks is close and Mark's is too. Maybe I'll post up better directions or more parking opportunities later?
Mark (not the one who works at Gameworks) has opened up his apartment as a location for our Gathering. It seems things are starting to fall together. Now, we need to get Ian's link cable. ;-)
It's Gathering #2 for the break, and probably the last one if it comes off. Location arrangement doesn't seem to want to come together. Tom is offering his as an emergency backup. We need to find someplace in Seattle. This shall be fun. I wonder if Mark at Gameworks hates me...
