In a couple weeks, around 9/23-9/24, Monty is going to swing over from NH to the eldrich horror that is Maine for a visit. We were wondering if anyone else, if there is anyone else, in the Bangor/Orono area wanted to meet up.

Be sure you have fresh camera batteries, pictures required!
Says the person who made :monty: out of my deliberately-ridiculous hallowe'en pic :tongue:

Don't worry Monty, I think the picture being requested involves a sword on my head and you operating the camera.
Let me get this straight... you have the sword, I have the camera, and this is supposed to keep me from worrying? :goofysca:

I'd be there in a heartbeat if I wasn't residing my house.
Well, should you need to take a break...

I was going to say it seems like a much longer drive from your neck of the woods, but it seems that you get the "New England North-South roads are fast" bonus, and from where I'm staying in NH, I suffer from the "New England East-West roads are slow" problem.

Good luck with the siding...

Monty, what are you doing in NH to start with? I won't be over until second week of October, and then no further North than Boston, so,..., yay! For nanocons!

My parents are spending Sept in NH, and so I'm visiting with them for a week and a half. (And fixing their computers, apparently :rolleyes: )

*le sigh*

Isn't that just always the case.... Hope to make my way down to Cal as well, likely November, though, let's see what happens.

Let me know... I don't have any well-defined travel plans in November yet (not sure what I'm doing for Thanksgiving).

nanocon successful

For once, we have super action figure poses instead of just people drinking beer at a nanocon!

Esquid plays cricket, while Monty tries not to get beaned by the cricket ball, or the golden snitch, or whatever it's called:



Erin with a sword on her head:



Er, wait, *this* one is Erin with a sword on her head:



In a fit of apathy, I didn't get any pictures of Erin's aquaculture facility, or the tanks she takes care of at school and at home. But I did see them. And Erin and her husband Morgan (both great people!) introduced me to "Ricochet Robots," which is an addictive board game.

All in all, a good time, and worth the drive. The state of one of Erin & Morgan's neighbors' siding would have made you say "My siding isn't as bad as it could have been," Dan, so it's a shame you didn't get to come up. I hope you got the project done, in any case...

Erin looks a bit more graceful than you do, Monty.:sagrin:
That, and I had my back arched which stuck my belly out. That's my excuse for looking extra pot-bellied, and I'm stickin' to it.

That's a really heavy sword: too heavy to do Tai Chi Dao with.

Also, you can see Erin's cat behind me and her tank behind her, if you look carefully.
