    phew, about time! I was starting to have Seattle meetup thread withdrawls! :P

    Pies and Pints tonight at 6. Some people thought the fair thing would be a good idea, so we could plan to go down to Puyallup at some point. It runs from the 11 to the 27th of this month.

    LOL. I wondered why you used tinyurl for that, until I realized that it was just a clever ploy to get us to open up Bing. You monster.

    Here's their *actual* website: http://www.piesandpints.com/

    It's on 65th near Roosevelt, there's some street/residential parking around it and the 48 bus stops right in front of it.

    I did it mainly because it had a map. Also, whoever designed PiesAndPints.com's website needs to spend less time worrying about getting strict html, and making a readable webpage. Sure, it's simple, but it's missing a lot of useful information, like a map link :)

    The links to myspace don't inspire confidence either :P

    If i see any of the small office-moving boxes around, i'll borrow them for you, but we mainly have big plastic ones we have to return now :(. All of mine got recycled or returned to the original owner.

    umm.. PAX hates my bank account too. I got paid today, and my account is still negative $74... fun stuff...

    Anyway, I'm hosting a little LAN next weekend, the 19th. It's in Sedro-Wooley, but it's also free of charge, nothing big or fancy. We got new games and there's always Rock Band and such going on.

    Maybe I'll show some of my PAX footage as well. :D

    Ok, I'm not joking, no one wants to hear about your smell ANYMORE. We all know. We all know who you are. I understand that you're excited about your newfound fame and all, but stop milking it or everyone is going to hate you instead of appreciate your moment.

    We're going to the fair... next weekend maybe? If anyone is still interested and the weather is still nice, we can still do the camp-out thing in my yard for the night. I want to actually have some freakin' smores this summer!!!

    OK so this year was my first PAX and I met some really cool people, and I'd love to meet more people in the area throughout this next year. I posted once a while back but never went to anything. So if I randomly show up to one of these things that'd be ok right? Should I wear something that proclaims me as a nerd for all to see just so there's no confusion as to who I'm looking for? Like a utilikilt made of MtG cards or something?

    I'm going to the fair on the 23rd.
    More people should go then, so we can hang out, because I can only afford to make it to the fair once this year.

    I could do the fair next weekend. It sounds like it would be fun. I've also been told that I HAVE to see that Weird Al thing if I'm there.

    Also Funnel Cake!

    That might help eliminate the part where you have to walk up to random strangers and ask if they are the ones from the internets. Which is what I did, and it was awkward.

    Definitely! What I might suggest doing is showing up at an event where we are at a bar (assuming you are over 21) or eatery and looking for the big nerdy crowd (won't be that hard to miss). The Puyallup fair may be slightly harder since the whole group would be roaming the fairgrounds.

    Oh yeah, bring a DS.

    Yeah I'm definitely over 21 and live downtown with no car, so I'll probably wait til there's something like that downtown anyway. Well awesome I'm looking forward to it then, though I may need to pre funk before the first time since I'll be all shy otherwise. Seriously at the bar crawl I didn't talk to anyone until bar #3 but then I was all over the place and met everyone I could.

    Agreed, let us know what's going to happen and I might show up...

    Anyone up for 9/17 8pm at the Capitol Club (http://www.thecapitolclub.net/)? Delicious food and home of the chocolate bacon martini.
