I may have done that song for karaoke on Christmas Eve. I remember MTA for sure, but not that one.

Y'all settle down, we're driving back Monday. If we leave by 6 am, we can get back to Cinti by 10 or 11 pm. I hope.

I'll crash with Linds on Monday night and roll back here on Tuesday for work Wednesday.

Sound good?

Sounds good to me. I just needed to know, because they scheduled me for that Monday. So I can ask to trade that day for the following Saturday!

If you take 2. If you take 90, i'm a good 30 minutes north. Though I could probably meet you guys in Pittsfield.

On the way in it should be no problem to come get you in N.A. On the way home, leaving you in Pittsfield might make more sense so we can get Linds home in time to sleep.

I would prefer to be home before midnight, since I have to work Tuesday. ^_^

Sooooooo, our leg of the trip. I just looked at the bus schedules and none of them have me leaving and arriving at reasonable times. (Meaning in the middle of the night or the middle of the day.) But I CAN get up to Columbus or Cleveland at reasonable times in the morning. I can get to Columbus by 8:10am and Cleveland by 11am, both on Thursday. There's also the option of me going to Indianapolis Wednesday night and getting there around 10:30pm.

Let me know what's easiest for you.

Hey everyone, since this is basically in a weeks time we should maybe organize some things?

I'm getting into Boston Logan International at roughly 11:05pm on Thursday the 15th of January. Is anyone meeting me there or am I getting some kind of taxi cab to Jon's place? I feel this is the kind of thing I should know.

Jon and I will meet you at the airport.  Haven't figured out whether we're taking the train back or if we'll just use my car yet.  The train is easier but driving is faster.  We'll see.

Car will be faster, but I recommend T, unless your flight ends up delayed. 11:05 is plenty of time to catch the subway back and the tolls to get to the airport are fucking ridiculous (Like $7 each way now, I think). Even if you'[re delayed by like half an hour, if we can get to South Station via the silver line before the T shuts down, taking a cab back to my place would still probably cost less than actually driving there.

Unless you've got like eight billion bags, that is. If you'[re traveling with anything less than three or four bags (Easily carried between the three of us), we'll be fine on public transit.

About Edith, Shane, and I, we don't know exactly what time we will be arriving, but if we were to arrive Thursday night instead of Friday morning, is this okay?

Also, I dunno what the sleeping arrangements are, but do I need to bring a sleeping bag or something?

Thursday is absolutely fine, and Jon would recommend a sleeping bag.  I'm not sure who gets which futon/loveseat, so better to play it safe.

I am NOT sleeping on that small-ass loveseat. It fucks with my spine and I have to de-compress for an hour or so when I wake up.

If Rachel can show me where to buy a few supplies when we park the cars on Friday morning, I would be happy to make breakfast for everybody.

Not if I've had insufficient sleep on a small-ass loveseat, though.

There's a Whole Foods right down the street from Jon's place.  I'm sure we'll find something.  OR I could go to the store the night before.  Make me a list, lady!

Rachel, I've never been dancing, so let me know what kind of clothes to bring, because I haven't the slightest clue.

I'm trying to figure out where we're going first.  My friend suggested a certain place, but they require "throwback attire" for the night we're looking to go.  I think that means early 90s?  I have no idea, so I'm trying to figure it out.

Oh god....you're not talking "My So Called 90's Night" out in Allston are you? Please say no, because I would be legitimately tempted to borrow some flannel from Chad and go to that.

I'm fine with that.  I just figured the guys wouldn't have an interest in dancing, but hey, that's cool. 

Also, Eed, I'll probably grab at least the basics because Jon has NO FOOD at all, and I'm not sure grocery stores will be open by the time we need to move our cars.

This is the place we'll be going to.  It's got a $4 cover, from what I read, and all of the reviews are great.  (the DJ boycotted the Macarena!)

Nope, no NSYNC shirt. But I do have oversized flannels, cut off cargos, and those super wide leg pants. You know, the ones so wide, the bottom of the pant leg is probably as big as your hips? Yes, those pants. Yeah, I don't know why I wore those either.

Hey guys, my computer is making god awful noises because of the stupid cd/dvd drive, so I'm not going to be using it again until Monday, when I'm getting the damn thing taken out of my computer. (I'm at work now.) So if anything important pops up, give me a call/text.
