LiveJournal.... What's that???
Ok, so I may have been a bit busy lately (can anyone blame me!?) but I'm working on that.

Abby and Ellen are doing great and we are starting to fall into a nice daily routine which is helping to keep our weeks from just collapsing from under us.  But I PROMISE to have a proper update post about all that soon... PROMISE!!!

What THIS post is about is me getting things together for some much needed social time!!

I have found a Lego Convention in VA in Aug of 2011 and I AM GOING!  Ellen and Abby probably won't be joining me, but if I have to go alone, I don't care, I AM GOING!  So what I want to know is.....

Does anyone want to join me?

The details can be found at www.brickfair.com

Option A:  Public viewing is open Sat & Sun for $9 per day.  Viewing ONLY (basically a walk-through to look at custom built models)   This part does not really interest me as I don't want to drive down 3 hrs, walk around for 2-4hours, then drive home

Option B: Open Thurs - Sunday to exhibit YOUR custom creations for the public viewing, meet fellow Lego fans, participate in games and all kinds of conventiony type stuff!  THIS is what I will be doing.  Weekend reg is $52 ($50 if you pay them by check).  You MUST prereg and pay before hand (MUCH before the deadline) because they only allow the first 1,000 who pay to attend.  All others who attempt to reg will be turned away.

I did a quick search around the area and it looks like the hotel at the expo is the cheapest (as low as $99 / per night).

So.... I'm totally in.   Anyone else?

Would you be interested in my company? :) I wouldn't be able to do the Thurs-Sun option, but we could check it out on Saturday, spend one night in VA and maybe explore what else the D.C. area has to offer?

I wouldn't mind yer company :)

If you couldn't do the full 4 day weekend, just seeing you Sat/Sun would be cool. But know that I will be there for the Con and that doesn't end until Sunday afternoon. Unless it sucks (which I highly doubt) I don't see myself skipping out on the con. :)

Well, attending Brickfair is the plan :o)

And Wolfcub totally said I should hit you up with this. Said you might be in the area sometime and maybe could coordinate something?

And of COURSE I know you're and AFOL. I joined your LJ group (but have not made anything worth taking pictures of.. sorry)

But I'm hoping to have more time for my Lego addiction now :o)

Oooooooo! :-D

I've marked it on my calendar, we'll see if I can swing the full-convention part. If nothing else, I'll be there for the public portion, Chantilly is a very short drive from here (less than 2 hours on a weekend).

Would be awesomes to hang out with you again! Would love the company and hope we can work something out. I know it is very far off, but here is hoping.

btw: I'm totally horrible at remembering stuff, so if you haven't heard from me and you are thinking about it, poke me about it, k? k.
