Pyro's been good about bugging me.  I'm hoping to get to them this weekend.  I had several good opportunities to mess with them that got totally screwed by outside circumstances.  If that happens this weekend, I'm going to scream and tear my hair out.

Was looking at the pics again and reminiscing on old times, damnit I really wish we all lived closer together. I sometimes think I lead two separate lives.

Every time I try to get these together, something happens.  This weekend has been absolutely horrible.  Fuck me, all my weekends are horrible.  I hate my job with my whole heart and soul, but I swear, any time I'm not at work, shit goes south.  Every time, without fail.

I should just kill myself.  Then I'd have time to work on these.

Okay, OWmeet '09 pics are finally up.  Sorry for the insane delay.  And thank Pyro and Idol for getting my ass in gear and providing me with the necessary links that I had lost.

Well, there's a bump in the road already.  Sy is getting the 22nd through 26th of March off for spring break.  We didn't figure out the timing for this fast enough and one of my coworkers snapped up the 19th and 22nd for days off.  She isn't the super bitchy one, so I'll see if maybe I can bargain with her for that one day... but we'll have to see.  And I have to get this ball rolling on Monday, otherwise I run a real risk of the other chick trying for some time during that week.  It isn't just around Easter, so hopefully that means I'm safe, but I'm tossing in my leave request ASAP to be sure since only one person can be off at a time in my unit now that so many people have been fired or quit.

Fuck I hate my job.

Anyway... so yeah, that's sort of the plan for now.  Any thoughts?  It seems we're all down to do it here again this year, which is good because at our new place we can house a good number of folks for free, so nobody should be motel-bound anymore.  Between Sy's place and ours we should be able to accommodate 4, which should cover the usual suspects no problem.

やっぱり、春休みをまっています!

I'm down again this year probably.  Let me know more details on when I should come out (like if I could come out a day or two before the 22nd) and I can request it off ASAP since my vacation renews on Jan 1st and the sooner I put in for it the better.

Just realized I didn't update the thread.  I couldn't get Monday the 22nd off, so I got the rest of that week through to the end of the month.  It looks like plans are forming for people to maybe get here the prior weekend, on the 20th or 21st, then Sy can entertain everyone for a day until I get off work (in theory I could use emergency personal leave, but I only get 15 hours a year).  I don't know how that'll work out since we haven't talked to Sy about it, but that seems to be the plan that's forming.  Looks like people will start leaving on the 27th-ish.

Just an update, I now officially have off the 20th-27th so barring any bumps in the road I should be able to make it out for certain.

So Que suggested we start hammering out more exact dates for travel and who needs to be where when. Guess I'll start since the train is pretty regular.

Coming in is no real big deal. I originally planned to come in Sunday afternoon, but the ticket price went up $40. Strangely if I leave a day later the price is actually cheaper, only $116. So if I take that I'll show up on Monday at 3:30pm.

The return trip has me leave at 10:30am. Its nice that Que isn't very far from the station and its a whole hour later than the Emeryville departure time, but it makes it trickier getting me there and others to the airport if they have tickets near that time. So...I can't change that time, but I can change the day I leave since I'm probably the most flexible for it. Plus all the ticket prices for that weekend are the same. Since I'm going to cut off the beginning of the week a bit, I figured maybe I could stay Saturday and leave Sunday morning, if thats cool with Que.

So thats my plan at the moment. If there are no conflicts and stuff is groovy with everyone then hopefully I can get the tickets ordered while the one is so cheap.

EDIT

I guess more specific dates would be in order. I would arrive on the 22nd, and depart on the 28th.

So far it looks like you from the 22nd to the 28th and Belmont from the 20th to the 27th.  That leaves Pyro and Keebs still to chime in, though I'm guessing Keebs will drive in again.

So Aimee had a thought tonight. What would everyone think about seeing if we can get to Alcatraz one day? Apparently there's some sort of cool night tour that would be fun.

We were sort of thinking of shooting for the Thursday or Friday. If that sounds cool, we can start looking into getting reservations/planning the thing.

Sounds good to me.  I've been there before but it's actually quite a cool place to check out.  Lots of interesting architecture and some beautiful views of the bay.  Never done a night tour before, but I'd be down for a day tour too.

Is everyone still on board for the Alcatraz thing? I can get the tickets and then get reimbursed later. Tickets are ~$35. I'm thinking that the Thursday night would be best. If I can get a total number of tickets to buy, that'd be sweet.

Alright. Six tickets are now ours. We're set for Thursday night at around 6. Should be cool.

Someone (Que or Aimee, I can't remember now) mentioned that it might be sweet to hike or something one day as well. I think last year we considered Muir Woods. Maybe we can actually do that this year if people want to get out of the house.
