What is it with Rhode Islanders and the fact half of you like the Yankees? Did y'all forget which side of the line you're on?
What's wrong with you heathens? I live in the freakin' SOUTH and even I'm a wicked loyal Sox fan. So suck on THAT, Yankeeslovinfreaks. Don't y'all know only criminals wear pinstripes?
WAITJUSTACOTTONPICKINMINUTE...time out: Cap'nJack's coming, too? One of my all-time favorite Inforoosters of all time? That's it: I'm scouting airfare right.quackin.now! ;D
Ummm.... duh?! ;D of COURSE I'm coming! Some of my favorite people from the whole wide interwebs gathering in one place, and it's just an hour away? I'll be there with bells on! (...well, not actual bells, unless I end up getting really stinking drunk )
And I don't care if this isn't supposed to be a potluck dinner - knowing me, I'll probably end up coming over with like 2-3 dishes and a couple bottles of some good wine or beer anyway. Guess you'll just have to deal with it.
Last year during Jay-Z, I met some Sox fans from Knoxville. There's definitely a handful down south, even southern born and bred. And that gets a LD seal of approval.
OK, now my evening To-Do List has 2 bullets:
a. find airfare to this shindig (actually, it might be hard to beat $219 R/T to Boston, but I'd rather fly into Bradley or TF Green to avoid the Mjerkstore drivers - no offense, Jack! - plus, I miss that shoreline drive thru New London Co. & into Mystic...so many good BARS memories there) &
b. change my profile pic to the one where I'm wearin' my Sox hat bought @ Fenway. I like changing it to that one to tease LoveLuckLaughter, that poor misguided Yanks fan!)
I'd rather fly into Bradley or TF Green to avoid the Mjerkstore drivers - no offense, Jack!
None taken - between the road-raging drivers and the abundance of criss-crossing one-way streets downtown, I avoid driving in Boston at all costs whenever possible. Back Bay is on a grid so it's not that bad, but the rest of it just makes my brain explode inside my skull a little bit.
Haha, why am I all of a sudden reminded of junior year of high school?
Keep poking around a bit, holls - I just did a quick search and saw Nashville > Boston roundtrips for $260 that weekend and Nashville > Providence R/T for $300, if you don't mind going out of your way a bit.
Keep shopping Holls! You can come up early and leave a little late if you want to hang out since its a bit of a trip and you need an RI fix. We can go get you from CT, PVD, or Boston if you want. Who knows... Scroggie may still be here from NFF if he hides in the basement and does not go home. ;D
Been busy with birthday stuff (always a good year when you reach another one) but will get some pics up and get focused asap.
LD - thanks for the rename!
While you'll have to put up with Quacker being a NY diehard.. all are welcome! (My family are all die hard Boston fans.. makes for fun get togethers. )
And Jack. oh yeah.. bring 'fuds. Were game - 'but dont shoot us'. We will get to planning on a lot more fuds, bevies etc asap.
oh oh oh .. the 'with bells on reference'... My sister took a week trip without her man (even older than quacker : ) !!) and he said he'd be at the airport with bells on. He picked her up at TFG Monday - sporting a strip of sleigh bells and a red rose. Awww....... And word has it he got quite a few free drinks at the bar while waiting because of being there 'with bells on'. : ) Had to share.
it's just money... y'all are worth it! After all, I can sell the two front-row tix I have for MMJ that nite in ATL & that'll pretty much cover the cost. Not even Kayak could beat the Delta rate outta Chattanooga instead of driving to ATL or Nashvegas. This means I'll be able to help Jack stock up on tasty nommage & booze...'cause if you met me at Brunch, then you know I like 'em big & stiff (cocktails, that is.)
PS - wow. room's getting fuzzy...NyQuil is gooood stuff! wheeeeeee!!!
