Actually, I did have a dream that Mikey, one of the Nats, Indytoad, and Lexx all came over to my house, and nobody said anything to anyone. This get together, however, was not my idea.

I thought that actually happened.
Did it ever. :x
For those who haven't read about the first official AC meet:
Actually, optic, one of the people who said he WOULDN'T be able to make it was the only one I met. We hung out for about three hours, ate carrot cake and drank chocolate milk in my hotel room, then went to see the new exorcist movie. But like I said, that was only three hours and he had to go on a trip. By a strange coincidence my hotel was two blocks away from where he worked.
It was a 3 day busride down there and a 3 day busride back. A chick on the way there spoke with me for a solid 7 hours or so and was headed to another town nearby and offered to let me come with her, but like an idiot I turned her down on the hope that at least 3 people would show for the meet... I shouldn't have of course, I should have gone with her... This overshadowed the whole trip because I could have been boning her all weekend instead of sitting alone in a dark hotel room drinking chocolate milk and eating carrot cake. Talk about adding insult to injury.
I spent 7 hours on public transport completely alone (well, I met many scary vagrants along the way) making my way across from one of Chicago's suburbs to six flags because I purchased tickets online prepay and didn't look at the hotel location when I rented. I kept hoping someone would come, I think I tried calling someone but I can't remember who and they said they couldn't meet me because their parents wouldn't drive them out to meet me at the six flags... Because it was weird meeting someone they met on the internet... This person lived maybe an hour or two from where I was staying and was originally going to go to the meet so I was a little dissapointed that they bailed on me when I sat for three days on a bus and they couldn't be bothered to make a couple hours effort to say hi, or even go to six flags with me. Then another 7 hours back on public transport... Except it shut down halfway through getting back. On the plus side, I got through lines quickly because I had nobody else alone. On the other hand, I felt empty inside being at an amusement park totally alone... Like, honestly.
Public transport shut down at around 2:00 and I shared a cab with a seedy mexican guy and his son, then we hung out for an hour or so watching mexican soccer while drinking mexican beer at his place as he told me about how everyone in the US was religious so it was strange that I wasn't. He paid for the rest of my cab ride back to my hotel because he was desperate for friendship of some kind and even asked if I was staying a few extra days so we could "hang out" I told him I left the next day (which was a lie.)
My parents in the meantime, were freaking out like they do when they can't contact me and had called the police and a few people from the forums trying to find me. When I got back to the hotel I had to call them so they could report that I was not missing or dead.
I walked around near my area looking for wireless signals the next day with my laptop. I sat on some guy's lawn to connect to the AC and post about my trip. I got yelled at by some crazy guy who then momentarily was distracted by a person on a bike and he tried to pull him off... I ran past him as he was busy and went home immediately.
Yes, I can reply to year old posts... I wasn't here when they were made.
