Plans Coalesce

With the unexpected spousal unemployment this month, we canceled our planned adventure to da UP.

However, we still want the offspring to enjoy a month of visiting with cousins, so the kid and I are Amtraking to Chicago on August 2nd, to arrive August 4th. I'll fly back to the beautiful PNW on Wednesday the 9th.

Saturday August 5th is the tumultuous Insley Family Picnic, but other than that I have no plans. Anyone want to get together during my short stint in Chitown?

I am so inclined. Perhaps Monday or Tuesday evening?

Great! Where and when?

I'm an ace taking public transit, and I can probably borrow a car from someone if needed.

It would be great to see you again, but considering that I was only a customer at Stars and didn't really know you or see you outside of that -- heck, I wouldn't be surprised if you even remembered me. :)

But if you're passing through Palatine, drop me a line, my door is always open.

(Now I find myself wondering whatever happenned to Beri-anne, hrm)

I remember you just fine - although I'm sure the fine details of what projects you've been doing have slipped through the cracks.

Palatine isn't on my regular stomping grounds, but perhaps a convenient time and place could be arranged.

Ah, and last I heard Berianne is working at a Chicago book distribution company (IDW?) along with several other ex-Stars employees.

Well, let me see; I generally have sunday afternoons to myself, as my wife works from 11:30 - 5:00 at the local library, but between making sure I'm able to pick her up on time and not having a lot of spare $$$ for gas expenses, I wouldn't be able to drive too far out from Palatine. Hrm.

I'm still with Anime Central staff, got married in 2003, and became a Corporate Drone shortly thereafter in order to help pay the bills. Eh, it's a living. Oh, and there are NO decent bookstores in Palatine that I can find, not a one.

I've still got the Chronicles of Number Ten Ox and Master Li hardcover on my bookshelf. Definitely high up there on my list of prized possessions.

How far are you from Mitsuwa? That's been one of my favorite near-suburb places, although it's not quite as wonderful as it was when the sushi and okinomiyaki booths were in the food court, and the toy store is now a couple of blocks away.

I'll try and catch up with you if it's early enough, and someplace baby friendly.
