Ok, I got my bus ticket to Columbus last night. I will be arriving there at 8:10 (there being 111 E Town St, 43215). And it turns out that I have to be at the station here by 5am to get my ticket, so I hope I'm not practically a zombie when I get to Columbus. (Hopefully, I'l ba able to nap on the bus.)

Yeah, I am not riding with you if you're going to be a zombie and trying to eat me.

A gun is an impractical weapon to get a hold of. A crowbar would be ideal to have in a pinch and is one of the more versatile weapons one could carry in a zombie holocaust.

I have a crowbar at work. You can not have it to kill me.

And I retract the whole zombie thing. You guys are NOT going to have an excuse to chase me around the city with a crowbar/bat claiming that I eat brains.

Chicago's definitely a no for me, because if I'm going anywhere next summer, it's San Francisco pride, my friends made me promise them. Also in January I'd be doing a few days in NYC too, to go see my friend Marcus so it's the perfect meet for me to go to, if I can afford it.

I'm crossing my fingers.

I hope I am not replying to this too late but, when will you be in NYC?

I'll PM you my number in a sec if you'd like to meet up.

Watching the house with a couple of friends the weekend this is happening.  I think I might have one dressed up as a shadow and have the other talk obnoxiously about comic books nobody cares about just so I can have the Bostoncon experience.  We will also eat cereal.

Guys, are we still having a chicken party this weekend?  Jon suggested it a long time ago and i think it's a great idea, but I wanted to make sure everyone else was still in on it, too.

If we are, we will need to do it Saturday, meaning we will need to establish what we want Friday. We need to order 24 hours in advance and the minimum order needs to be $100, which is easily hittable for the group of us attending (I am anticipating fuck tons of nuggets and sandwiches).

Considering my obsession with Chick-Fil-A, I'm obviously in, who else is interested?

I wanted to aim for delivery to save us the trouble of all eight of us having to take the bus up there together. We've got to drop $100 between us all minimum, but I don't foresee that being a problem, especially considering the two of us are likely to drop $20 a piece each.

If we get close, I'll buy the difference and just save the chicken for later.  We know how well it reheats.   I'd rather pay an extra $10 for more food than spend 3 hours in travel in the cold.  Blegh.

Guys, I am now only questionable for Boston. My temperature at this moment is 102.5. I am not sure if this is a horrid fever or the flu, but it is still very much in question whether I will be better by Friday.

I've had terrible waffle fries there, but I've also had the best waffle fries of my life there, so I'm going to assume the terrible time was the exception. Yes, against my better judgement I will commit to spending godawful amounts of money on fast food.

Double checked and confirmed, for some weird reason, they will not deliver fries.

In terms of towels, bring your own. I don't want you grubby fucks touching mine.

Eed - So it looks like the weather in Columbus is pretty shit right now and I know they've closed at least one highway up there, so drive safely! If something happens tonight, just give me a call and if something's still wonky in the morning with my bus, I'll call you, too.

And that's good to know about towels. I will make sure to pack one.

Either that or take pictures of myself playing four person board games all by myself and looking sad.

I might do that anyway, just so I can feel like an artist or something.

The eggs were pretty delicious. Also American bacon is shaped weird.

Quite obviously I arrived ok.

And I really wish my internet hadn't broken before I left because then I would have had the foresight to bring my own towels. Now I'll have to demand some of Jon.
