ToB-Con, fact or fiction?

So I was talking to Vlad the other day on AIM when we kinda brought up the topic of a ToB-Con again (as I was talking about when I chilled with our friend, Mr. Buddy Jesus). It just so happens that Vlad might have a lakehouse in the Keys of Florida, and some time potentially 9-18 months from now we might be able to plan a sort of get together. And by get together I mean get drunk and pass the time in all sorts of fun ways (no ideas now Melli).

But I guess I'll just pose the question. If there was a ToB-Con sort of thing where we all get together and just shoot the shit, how many of you would be legitimately interested? I mean we'd have a date set in stone one day in the future, and you'd have plenty of time to work out scheduling, buy airplane tickets in advance, allocate funds for the fun, etc.. I was just curious what kind of head count we could get.

I've already had a chance to meet a good number of the ToB-ites, so it would be interesting to chill with some of you I haven't had the pleasure of doing so.

Obviously this thread is pre-disposed to those who have known me and Vlad for a while now, as I wouldn't understand why people who don't know us would want to chill anyways.

Or as heroes said, "No johnny-come-lately douchebags" allowed.

And I'm going to be pissed if some of you can't find an excuse to come. We've only known each other for what, like 4+ years now?

Key Largo, to be specific; flying to Miami and driving there isn't a huge strain.

If I can get over being broke, I'd be down. I haven't been off the west coast in almost 20 years anyway.

If Watcha is up for it, we could meet up and head over to Florida. God knows theres some nice party spots down there.

I'd be up/down like RBM on Lance Bass. We might all die, but it'd be incredible.

I'd throw my hand in, but I don't want to invite myself and I'm a little weird about being the only chick.

I wouldn't be against it. But only chick? We're not all antisocial douches here.

Really? As in the addition of girlfriends?


Girls typically hate me. :(

I know I'd be bringing my girlfriend, so at the very least there'd be two chicks ;)

Though I get your point, I'm not too sure how many female ToB-ers we have left that frequent the forums. Julliette disappeared, Jacinthe has been gone for a long time (and her hubby wouldn't let her come anyhow), we all know about the sica fallout, and seras turned out to be a dude (SHE'S A MAN, MAN!).

But I'd imagine there would be girlfriends/wives or whatever that may come as well. And as Vlad said, we're not all anti-social douches ;)

Yeah. Still, with that much advance notice, it's worth considering.

I will go whenever, wherever, because we are meant to be together.

Julie didn't exactly disappear. Last I talked to her she was either planning on eloping to mexico with her boyfriend (who was named Julian I believe) or admitting herself to a psych ward.

I told Vlad already that I had money on you flying down to chill. Plus, if you were on the fence Vlad had extra incentive in the fact that the gay community is huge in Key West.

My god the stuff that girl dumped on me. Anyway, If the timing is good, and I can spare the cash, like I said, I'm there. Probably drag Zal with me.

I could wing it for mad cheap dude. I could freaking drive down there in a day.

Estimated Time: 10.0 hours 57 minutes Estimated Distance: 708.19 miles

But it would really depend on when we do this, obviously with work being the biggest obstacle. I can get days off, but certain major holidays I have to work.

yeah, why we're working with such a big time frame. trying to line everything up just right can and still probably will be a gigantic pain in the ass.

dude, we could carpool unless you want your own car there

Badass, Jester. This would be sweet.

And yeah Zah, I figure there will be so much time to prepare for this that it shouldn't be too much trouble to save up for it.

Oh and for extra incentive. I GUARANTEE that I will force windezz to come. So if you want to meet and see the elusive windezz... you must come.

If you were to drive I would just fly to Atlanta or whatever and trip the rest. Road trip > plane ride.

Could also drag Trowa's ass. Even though we live in the same town we've yet to actually meet (entirely due to my shitty time management skills).

Kaz has to show though, or I would cry.
