Just checking in here as a definite yes on the Friday stuff. 

I probably won't be able to get to your home until just after lunch - around 1 or 2.  I will be bringing two biggish bags of 'all-dressed' potato chips and two of ketchup chips + assorted Cdn. chocolate. 

I can also sit on the floor.   :)  Thanks lhamo for putting this all together!

I like floor sitting too. It makes me more relaxed in social situations.
Thanks pachnik for doing Canadian food transport. I can fit only so much in my carry on bag.

No worries.  I am driving over so it's no problem.  Plus chips could get crushed in your luggage.  :(

Since I am officially the guest of honor, I'd like to request that people don't bring a ton of chocolate. Gifts for individual people are fine, so they can experience your exotic foreign candy, but I will destroy a communal chocolate pile, I will end up feeling nauseated, and I will blame Canada.

Dear MJ,
I read your post out loud to my husband and we both laughed about blaming Canada!!!   
I am bringing Canadian potato chips (made on the prairie in Winnipeg, Manitoba) for the communal pile.  And some special request chocolate gifts for our hostess, lhamo.   (read:  Mars bars + Purdy's)

Looking forward to the 24th, hopefully there won't be a lot of Canada-blaming.  Some might be okay though and maybe kind of fun!  :)
Pachnik

PS  And I want to bring back some cheap wine bought in a grocery store cos we can't buy alcohol in grocery stores yet.

If everyone insists on sitting on the floor, I'll take a chair.

Feel free to blame everything that goes wrong on me, as a token foreigner I am used to it.

YAY!!!! This is going to be fun. I will indeed be there on the 24th. lhamo, which bus would I take from downtown? I'll just bus over after work.

I would offer a place to stay, but...oh god, our living situation. You don't want that, trust me.

Just to be sure, Saturday will be meeting up for Pike Place and the park downtown with the creepy giant head statue, correct? Do we have a timeline for that yet? I'll need to figure out bus stuff for the day.

The Metro 41 or Community Transit 522 both work-- Metro is cheaper, I think (one zone)  What time do you get off work?  If coming to my place (before 4), get off at 130th by Fred Meyer.   If going to the Double J (after 4), I think the 125th stop is slightly closer.

Can't see the earlier post but I THINK my original plan was to have people converge at the big red statue in the Sculpture Park where there are a bunch of chairs to sit in around 11.   We can then walk up the trail toward Lower QA and circle back to the Center House for lunch (brownbagging is acceptable there).   If people want to do Pike Place before or after, that works -- I'll probably need to head home after lunch to make sure my kids get dinner (and go into an introvert coma after 2 full days of socializing....)

Awesome. I'm done with work at 1:00, and will check the bus schedule this week.

On Saturday the Demon Child will be coming with me. You've been warned. :) Although, she loves chaos and people so she should be reasonably well-behaved. I think.

Because her trip started it all.

I will be in Seattle from Tuesday, Feb 21 - Saturday, Feb 25. There will be group meetups on the 24th and 25th, and quite a few forum folk will be flying in for a few days. Use this thread to coordinate flights/hotels/transportation.

The party continues in Portland on the 26th, if anyone wants to attend both.

We can coordinate more easily over email than PM, so if I don't have your contact info already, gimme! I promise not to sell to the Russians.

Frank, I was going to suggest that you could be the FIREd guest of honor, but then I realized that JS, shadowmoss, and maybe FrugalZony might also be coming-- I am as bad as Reed at playing favorites so I guess you all are just going to have to duke it out in my garage or push each other down the stairs at the trailhead or something.

Hey, somebody on my journal was saying they want to see Lhamo's Fight Club.   This will be the special FIREd edition!

Question:

Would everyone benefit from a forum name/real life name cheat sheet for the meet up at my place?   If so, please PM me your real name (first name only is fine).

I figured I'd use that as a way to tell if folks knew me back when on SLF when I actually used my real name.  :)  Of course, I believe with that I'm memorable enough that the one or two of you who will be there would actually remember it...

I think I am one of those people. (SLF since 2003). I was excited to prove my excellent memory. =)
But I'm not 100% sure I have it right.

First rule of Fight Club.. You do NOT talk about Fight Club!

I thought we could all wear those cheesy name tags.. "Hello my name is Bert.. AKA Slarty Bartfast".. That sort of thing...:)

Heavy posters should get gold name tags. They can be bartered in for access to the Foreigners Corner. Canadians' eligibility will be decided on a case by case basis.

Agreed MJ. And I found that part that I put in bold particularly unnecessary. Almost MEAN.

As for me...I'm not quite the jet setters that 94 and Jessa appear to be as evidenced by their choice of THE WESTIN. I'll be rockin' the Hampton Inn beside Northgate Mall.

To everyone who offered me the chance to surf your couches...thank you. I may well take you up on this in the future...in return I can extend an offer for you to come and chill on a little island for a spell. :)

Well in my defense it DID rain here for a few days and might even rain again...oh and it was a bone chilling 60 degrees (which is some weird other number in Canada temps) so you shoyld  pity poor poor me ;-).  Maybe in April once my roommate returns to Alaska I'll do a weekend meet up here and you can all stay at my house (and it is half way to Baja...just saying).

ETA: And you can bring your dogs too! Bignfullynfenced back yard and doggie proof house with dog friendly furniture (which ALL creatures great and small (that includes Jon Snow) are welcome on). It could be a Pupapalooza Par-Tay.

I'm just trying to figure out if Spartana meant to refer to me as a "creature".

I'm afraid I need to cancel the plan to hang out at my place on Friday, 2/24.   Really sorry, but there are other things I need to be focusing on.

I will leave it to you all to make a revised plan.   Feel free to change anything I had already suggested as best suits the group.

Can MJ update the first post with the latest agreed upon schedule? Use big fonts and spell out everything for the simpletons like me who thought the  house party was on Saturday. I am having a hard time keeping track of all the events.

If all else fails, my apartment complex lets me book the "club house" for free. There is a kitchen and a patio and ample seating. It's right by the space needle, which is walking distance from the downtown hotels.

That sounds like a great option.
Thanks to all the local people helping get this set up for us out of towners.

lhamo, I hope you will make it out to some of the activities. I'd love to meet you. But of course you prioritize for you.

I laughed.  Then again, I've been 'getting' your humor for several years now.

As for me...I'm not quite the jet setters that 94 and Jessa appear to be as evidenced by their choice of THE WESTIN. I'll be rockin' the Hampton Inn beside Northgate Mall.

FOR HOW MANY NIGHTS, SNOW?

Why do I get the impression that if I answer incorrectly things won't go well for me? one


Although now I feel bad about my first post. Guess my attempt to be funny didn't work. Sorry.

Oh it worked!

I was just playing my role as the forum's preeminent "straight man". A little too well in this case perhaps.  As my Wondertwin you can call me whatever you want. :)

Can MJ update the first post with the latest agreed upon schedule? Use big fonts and spell out everything for the simpletons like me who thought the  house party was on Saturday. I am having a hard time keeping track of all the events.

If all else fails, my apartment complex lets me book the "club house" for free. There is a kitchen and a patio and ample seating. It's right by the space needle, which is walking distance from the downtown hotels.

The clubhouse idea is awesome! Thanks for offering that, founding member of the Foreigners' Corner. Can you reserve it for Friday the 24th? Even if the plan changes, it's good to have it as a backup.

Thirding (I think?) the clubhouse support. If the Space Needle is visible then I can just bike over from work instead of trying to figure out mass transit, so it's even more convenient for me.

I'm so excited to meet so many of you. It's like a who's-who of MMM forum celebrities and my favorite posters. :)

lhamo - hope everything is okay on your end!
