Greenscapist - to discuss dead vodka swilling existentialist writers;

El Guapo - to eat Bar-B-Q and swig Nattie Lite;

Habanero - because she's a chick (I don't meet one of those very often).

Chet - enough said.

BTW: I've got my Segway traveling case figured out. See a few of ya Cheeze Heads in a couple weeks.

Cruise town in a Volvo with El Guapo

Get rowdy at a Phillies or Eagles game with Mike D

Go bar hopping with Planderella in the Big Easy....as long as she stays awake ;)

Go to a punk show with NHPlanner and Nerudite.


I haven't really met many Cyburbanites in person. Greenscapist and I tried to meet up at a Radiohead show in Wisconsin, but missed each other.

I'd have go with PG. She is my secret crush. Some about her, latex, and VS that has my curiosity.;)

Catch a Saints game with Planderella and Big Easy King.

Giff, because he is from Iowa too.

This sounds awful “careful”, I am sure, but honestly I look forward to meeting as many as possible at the next APA conference in DC. Or any time any of you are in Miami, PM me, I know a few great places that pour cold beverages of choice (they even pour Coke-a-Cola for you non-drinkers).

…but I will have to say I would like to meet Dan because he is the method behind all this madness and
I would also like to meet Biscuit because he and I just tend to be too similar in too many aspects, almost scary.

Just think it would be a hoot to meet any of you,
But a few come to mind (no offense to those not listed)

Chet, just cause he seems fun.
el Guapo for a good beer
RichmondJake because through his comments about all things comforting we seem to have similar taste.
SkeLeton just because I am always amazed at how well he keeps up with us.
Dan cause he's our MAN
Biscuit for his sense of humor.

This by no means is a full list but I will quit for now

We'll have a good time when you decide to return to The Big Easy, Chet. Thus, I'd like to meet Chet and you, Mike D. (original pimp).

I am so excited, I get to meet PG next week, finally. We tried to meet over the summer, but I had a child instead.

I would love to work with Zoning Goddess again.

I would like to meet a whole bunch of you - hopefully at APA, but then that would leave out those wacky Canadians and many, many others. This is too hard of a question.

Any experienced planner who is looking for better employment prospects and the promise of a new life in the 'Lucky Country'.

I would like to meet everyone. It's a bit like listening to a radio announcer for a few years and then seeing a picture of them - finding they look nothing like you expected. Even though I've seen some pictures and read opinions, I expect you are all different from my expectations.

Some reasons to meet the regulars:

Dan because he smokes cigars and seems like a nice guy
El Guapo and Duke of Dystopia because they seem to know something about - "What is this thing you speak of called beer?"
Chet because he is so quick witted and so unlucky with the ladies he's got to make me feel good about my love life
JNL because she's the closest and seems very sweet
PG and Trail Nazi to find out whether they are either like the Gabor sisters or a tag team wrestling duo
Tranplanner and SGB because they always offer to help the newbies (inculding me), so I guess they are nice guys too
Skeleton because I'm sure he's really a 40 year old college professor experimenting on us
Cardinal because he's the only Cyburbanite who's changed his title from his real name since I've been here and as I remeber his real name it makes me feel like I'm in the loop
Michelle Zone and Habanero to see who has the best equipment for free oil changes, not that I'm a perv (sorry pervs). They just seem to mention this equipment occasionally.
Donk for very similar reasons to Chet's love life
Nerudite, Plannergirl and Planderella - because they are chicks who could kick @ss.

Yay! they like me! they like me! :-}

Now let's see...
Dan of course, he seems like a nice guy and I'm not mentioning him just to lick his boots :p
Chet: Ya gotta meet the clown! :)
Rem: Gotta show him I'm not a 40 y/o College professor :p
BKM: So he can visit Chile, and if he wants he can meet me :p
...
Damn it's too hard for the rest! I love'em all! :)

Where to start!

Before I get started we already had a thread on which cyburbanites we HAVE met and last count I was in the lead, 1 ahead of NHPlanner. That was before Duke of Dystopia regisitered, and I've met him before. Budgie is going to give me a big edge in 2 weeks!

My most wanted:

PlannerGirl, duh.

El Guapo. Because he taught Dan how to shoot high powered rifles and dammit its MY turn! And hes a fellow mod.

Budgie. Because he has a segway, is both intellectual and a metal thrasher. A rare and delightful combination indeed.

Jordanb. Becasue I bet if we tipped back a few brews, we'd find a lot of common ground

Michelle Zone. A strange bond might be forming, and it has piqued my interest.

Habanero. Invite me to the wedding dammit and I'll be there!
(I'd say the same for Planderella and BEK but I've met them already)

BKM. Because he has a bitchin car, Im jealous, and I want a ride.

Biscuit. Same reason.

Pete-Rock. To buy him and Prudence a beer and commiserate fate.

The Godess. Who doesnt want to mee the godess? One of the funniest cyburbanites in my book.

Downtown. Because she has talked soo much about Rob and the pending momhood, I want to meet the family and hear all those Clemson sorority girl party stories before its too late. ;)

BiteMeElmo. To meet Nerudite's other half. She rocks, so he must also.

El Feo. Im not sure why. But I'd love to discuss Kant or maybe price elasticity over a pint of lager with this guy.

Michalskis. Lets go bag chicks.

Alan. See El Feo reason.

Skeleton. To pinch his cheeks and say "loook how young he is!"

MarryTheresa. To askk her why the F*** she bumped uglies with a skinhead (newbies go to this site

Mike D. To toke the gangia.

Donk. Lets just DRINK buddy.

Tranplanner. See donk reason. And he's a fellow mod.

Boiker. You're just cool.

No apology necessary, I was going to say that myself. lol. I really don't think I am that hot. This is all a therapeutic game to get over the psychological scars of looking like a walking corpse for all of 2001.

Probably the 'easy' answer is that I would like to meet BKM because he is local and it wouldn't be much effort. lol.

Wow, a saints game. Some things just make me want to cry. The Saints aren't like other chronically lousy teams. They'll play well for a while--just to suck you in. When you really start caring, they rip your heart out.

Might be nice to meet my 2 hometown planners, though.

P.S. I'm temporarily in Arizona, and it now seems that the cardinals are trying to do the same thing with their recent win over the packers. As soon as I start caring, they will destroy my hopes. Can't wait to get back to N.O.

So, will there be a Wisconsin gathering when Budgie visits? Is that the same time as the conference in Milwaukee? The Cyburbia numbers are high out here. Cardinal, Repo Man, Chet and Prudence - we'll have to figure something out. Got to ratchet up the networking since I'll be looking for an internship next summer. :)

From all the messages I've read here, Cardinal, Repo Man, Biscuit, BKM Seabishop and Huston seem to think along the same lines as me. El Guapo and El Feo tend to make me laugh - but represent the dark side. :)

YES actually there are 2 ale fest planned

here at the ITE seminar outside Milwaukee. Budgie has yet to inform which date works best for him. After all, he's travelling the farthest, we should accommodate.

and...

Here. at the Upper Midwest conference in Milwaukee.

Please come from Madison and join us.

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.

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.

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!:D

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.

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 . . . 8-!

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

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.
