    First, those I've already met:

    Mary Poppins (obviously...my wife), peter lowitt (a former boss), Chet (in Chicago and Denver), prudence (in Chicago), Dan (in Denver), Planderella (Denver), nerudite (Denver), SW MI Planner (Denver), Bullwinkle (former planner in NH, and fellow BSU alum), mike gurnee (Denver), Chris Steins (Denver), donk (after a job interview on his way back home, in Portland, ME), Joe Illiff (BSU alum), SGB (former planner in NH), Seabishop (conference in MA), and Big Easy King (Denver).


    Those I want to meet:

    Tranplanner: My long lost mystery twin seperated at birth.

    Downtown: Had a couple of near misses, have spoken on the phone though.

    PlannerGirl: Will meet in DC in April

    el Guapo: Need to meet the man, the myth, and the legend.

    giff57: Near miss in Chicago

    BiteMeElmo: Gotta meet the guy that puts up with nerudite!

    Habanero: One of the originals....

    Repo Man: Similar interests....

    Mike D.: Just cracks me up.

    Cardinal and Mastiff: would love to toss back a few with both of 'em.

    Hell, I'd like to meet everyone here if I could. Ok...I need to go home now......

    Ale Fest

    The evening of the 7th works for me. I imagine 9:10 a.m. will roll around pretty early the next morning. I'm staying at the Radisson in Pewaukee that evening. I'll be in Milwaukee around 11:00 a.m. on the 7th.

    Of course, there will be some meeting going on next week in Chicago. Friday, October 3rd. Does seven sound at Fado sound good to anyone? Since it is a restaurant/bar, those under 21 should be able to get in.

    A) Most places that serve food stop serving after 8:00-9:00 and won't let people under 21 stay after.

    B) Honestly man, you're going to a huge friggn city, do you really think you need to patronize a chain? There are thousands of unique places in this city!

    Who I need to meet .... (for the record I've met no cyburbians, yet)

    donk....I almost got to smoke his boy at a race in VT over Labor Day weekend, but stayed home instead. Would you believe I can find nobody to drive to Hamilton with me?

    el Guap ... I may just take up drinking again that night

    Prudence ... our mutual love of strippers and lesbians makes me wonder if we were seperated @ birth? However, I don't wear pink shirts.

    PG ... ummm, duh.

    Habanero ... we hate the same people. It'd be fun to sit around and talk trash about everyone.

    Downtown ..... there has to be more stories than the ones we know.

    Irish One ... pass da pipe.

    Mastiff, Repo... too bad the 700 level is gone

    Tranplanner & nerudite ... because its so much more fun to make fun of canucks to their face.

    Big Easy ... fo sheezy

    biscuit ... my neezy

    Planderella ... if she stays awake.

    chet, NHP, Dan and everyone else who helps to change my avatars.....you can all go to hell! (j/k)

    DC is a real possibility for me, especially if I decide to do this AICP thingie, so bring your bikes.

    I've met Tran, NHP, Mary Poppins, JMF and Nerudite. All nice people and pretty much the same in person

    Would like to meet most of the regulars, but the following people for teh follwoing reasons:

    1) Chet, you make me laugh. Everyone trust me, his love life is more interesting then mine.

    2)Dan, to thank him for giving all of us disfunctionals a place to hang out.Everyone trust me, his love life is more interesting then mine.

    3) Mike D. To go for a ride(you'll rip my legs off) and get a tour of the crack and whore houses in philly. Sorry, your friends are losers (sorry, losers). The biggest sporting event in NA this year and they won't drive 8 hours. Wait till next year for trash talk about the NB crew, we'll be taking the eastern seaboard by force, if we can organize a sponsor. My little junior finished 15th at GMSR and is finalising a divison 3 euro contract contract for next year.

    4) Downtown and the Zoning Godess. They just make me laugh.

    5) PG, for the obvious reasons, plus another shared interest.

    6) Hab, so we can plan our next attack on jordanb. and I can convince you that arizona in february is way better then the north shore in february.

    7) EG, I like bikes, home brewed beers and guns.

    8) everyone else, for their advice, kind words, shared interests and senses of humour.

    DC may be a possibility, my cousin just got stationed in annapolis, so now just to convince work to pay for the conference registration, if I am still here.
    Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Hey guys keep me posted on where you are going out to, i'd like to meet some Cyburbianites. I have met Chet on a couple of occasions, but that was well before I registered on here and found out all of his deep dark secrets.

    all of the above.
    Mentioned only as

    or
    Everyone by NHPlanner, Donk, and PlannerGirl.

    Crap. I don't know personalities here all that well yet, but a few I'd like to meet:

    MikeD, and Donk: Bikes, Beer & Boobs. Can't get much better'n that!

    PG: There's just something....

    JNL,REM and sKel: I ust wanna travel down there, and having someone to meet is the perfect excuse to go. And I seriously wouldn't mind working down there for a stint!

    JessieJ: care for a bar crawl on cruiser bikes?

    Budgie: Prolly the most interesting charachter here.

    Hell, I wouldn't mind meeting all the folks here, it's not like I'm anti-social or anything. I'm still seeing if I can make it to Mwke for the midwest planner thingy in October.
    You're more boring than you know.

    Dan: but of course.
    Mastiff, Chet & Mike D: just for the $hit$ and giggles
    EG: you really know how to shoot guns?
    Zoning Goddess: I need to meet women that loose their pants on a first date.
    PlannerGirl: yes!
    Queen B: have to meet anyone that wants to meet me.
    Martini: G & Ts for everyone.

    I'm sure I'm leaving plenty off the list.

    I'm working on getting out to DC so maybe it'll happen.

    I've met Donk, Nerudite and Tranplanner.

    I think it would be great to meet anybody here because it would mean that I am travelling and seeing different places (must remember to buy the Super 7 tickets tonight - $20 million pot this week! I could do a lot of travelling!!)

    I would especially like to meet:

    Downtown, who has given me great advice about SC

    Journeymouse (how is she?); SkeLeton, Rem and JNL - since I think the best way to see a new place is with someone who lives there.

    Dan - because he makes this all possible

    NHPlanner - I want to see if he is indeed Tranplanner's lost lost twin (and he is close - not an impossibility)

    Chet - because I don't think I come across as the person I really am, I think I would surprise him

    I have to go work now, so sorry to those I have not gotten to yet.

    I'd like to meet everyone for a big hug. . . and to talk to you all for a few hours about opening your eyes to the savior . . .

    I've only met NHPlanner before Cyburbia changed my life. It was a magical night I won't soon forget.

    I hope you applied for one of the Principal Planner jobs at Lake Macquarie then. PM me if you did.

    I am in something of a wicked mood. Do you realize that your question is open-ended enough to invite WOMEN to volunteer that they are single and available?

    I think yer all really cool and I know that I've read so many of your post' and thought I'd like to hang out with you, catch a buzz., talk about our respective cities, etc. While I'm still a student I'd really like to hit a planning conference and shmooze w/ Cyburbanites.


    I'm single Godess.

    I can't believe I'm actually listed on here! (blush)

    I've been distracted from Cyburbia lately and can only really attend when I'm trying to distract myself from something I SHOULD be doing.


    I'd love to meet everyone, really.
    But, from what I recall of this past summer, my conversations with Habanero intrigued me the most. I'd love to meet her, chill, party..

    I'd like to meet Mike D. just cause he's got this sarcasm thing going and I'm wondering if he's like that in person. I'd also like to see how many knicks he has on his legs from shaving.

    If anyone is going to be in the area, I am going to be in Wisconsin (Racine) next weekend.
