    The New Orleans Denial Thread

    Since no has ever posted a picture of the 2010 APA conference in NOLA, I will say that it never happened. Those who claim otherwise without photographic proof are covering up what really happened that week.

    I have some, just not of Cyburbians.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    I had two people say they talked to me in person and I don't remember. I saw l p twice but we never chat in person. Obviously I was dreaming so it never happened.

    I agree with you, Otis. It didn't happen. TO called me on April 10th and my cell phone recorded a 9 minute and 58 second call. If I recall, I talked to other people that called themselves "Cyburbians." But I'm in denial. At best, it was an elaborate conference call hoax. At worst, impostors.
    I don't do anything right.

    I do not own a camera other than the 50 pictures I can store on my phone, and they were all taken by pictures of Treme, Bayou St. John, Foubourg Marigny/Bywater, Lake Pontchartrain, Uptown, and the banks of the river from the dinner cruise aboard the Natchez on Monday night.

    FWIW- we ( Dandy, sloopy, marine corp planner, the one, texas okie and I) took the ferry over to Algers, tried the bar mentioned in the never ending thread, but they didn't serve food. We ended up going to a restaurant near the dock. After the awards lunch, Dandy, the one, marine corp planner, tn and I went to river walk and walked. Finally, the one and his wife, marine corp planner, dandy and I met for dinner in Quarter. I saw lp at a session, but that was it.

    Yes, I was there -

    I had a hallway chat with TOFB but other plans didn't surface and way too much texting, and dinner with dandy and Trail Nazi and walked around with dandy to see some fun bands, yes saw WYP at a session (that I left, not what I had in mind) -

    I do not like photo's of me generally and the few I saw from the Massachusetts chapter hangouts are pretty bad and could lead to divorce and release from my duties (especially the karaoke video) so they are not to be shared (we made a pact not to actually)

    since I left on Tuesday at 0-dark-30 (right from going out, but that's another story), I felt my time was too squished to see and hang with people but it seems like that happens every year!

    ^ Those are both interesting stories but I'm with Otis and RJ - if there's no photographic proof, it never happened. Surely there must be some group shots before the debauchery took full hold?

    I met Sub Rep, but... and this is true, where we met has a strict "no photographs" rule!

    I think all those that took a pledge of no photographic disclosure should be suspended for three days for violating the Cyburbia Laefest Photography Policy {CLaPP} as a warning that this must never happen again.

    I've banned so many damn spammers it might take me a while to remember how to suspend someone. Hell, I'll give it a try ...





























    There WILL be photos next year, y'all got that?

    I don't think it happened either. They were all staging a moon landing instead...

    I'm not a hater....I have Minneapolis Laefest photos on my Facebook page. Maybe I will have to be the Program Director for the Boston Laefest.

    Fine, but be sure to pick a place that serves food and is open when we plan on being there ok.....

    There was a level of secrecy associated with some of the people at the Conference I've never experienced before......

    Yes, RJ and ZG are correct, I do tend to lose the conference photos. However, I did send them to a couple of people via email. TO, please send me your email and I will forward the group photo to you too.


    TO, I think you are on to something about the secrecy. There was the Federal Planning Division workshop before the regular APA conference. So who knows??? Maybe there were some people there from those organizations. There were some suspicious looking people there at the conference.
