...aaaand edit: Who said I'd fuck Tommy? Cause it certainly wasn't me.

Nor me.

I wouldn't do me. I know where I've been.

Haha, I like the way you're using Tommy's real name and my forum name. I think you're secretly hoping you will marry Tommy (my real name is Kristin in case you forgot it).

Sorry if I came off a little cranky, that wasn't my intention. I'm just a bit hungover irrational, so have mercy. Now, let's get this thread back on track, I think we have occupied it with our nonsense long enough (sorry guys).

Yes. We are the most awesome sibling couple who apparently will give the rest of you one hell of a show in Chicago. We just need to learn how to not explode our family business all over the internets, that's all.

I think 2 Norweigans would be rad. So, have we decided on a date yet? if so, I can see how many hotel rooms I can get in Chicago at the cheap rate.

It is looking like the weekend of July 31-August 3 by the poll in this thread. But that ends tomorrow, so give it a moment.

I totally want to do this. I really do. I probably even could! I'd have to be really disciplined about saving though.

Liz and I have been looking at flights and I could fly in on the 30th and leave on the 3rd for 602 as the prices are right now. If I aimed to save 800 I would need to work 176 hours and save all of that money. This is feasible, possibly!

People. Convince me.

Look at all the pictures I took in the hometown thread (starting here and continued on pages three and four) and you will see that this a very nice city! Plus you'll arive after the Buckingham Fountain renovation, and the Trump tower will be completed, and all sorts of cool stuff. So yeah, come. You'll meet all sorts of cool people too, obviously.

It would take me 176 hours of work and that is not including any spending or saving for other things than flying four thousand miles.

I'll see how mad I'm feeling in a couple of weeks, and then I'll throw in my commitment or otherwise to this harebrained scheme.

I have it on good authority that an old boarder who was banned but still thinks some of the people on here are awesome has been looking for a reason to revisit chicago and will probably be attending this meetup.

Looks like the cheapest flight I can get is 602. Can someone give me an idea of how much it would cost to stay there? I know it's already been discussed but for some reason the filters on the college computers won't let me go to any pages except the last one in each thread. Odd.

I just bought a box of Zebra Cakes because I remembered seeing a pack in the photo thread. I was then going to devour them and take pictures but I didn't have a camera so I just ate them. When I am not broke I will get some more.

Hey wait. My home is way on the south side and away from downtown. Should I plan to sleep some place more in the Loop, so as to be closer to the goings on?
That is probably a good idea. Hrm.

I don't really know what we're going to do, but I recommend going somewhere more towards the loop like you said. It takes me an hour to get to 79th and Western from my house (using the CTA) and I live on the south side. You don't want to put up with the commute for four days, it would suck.

Yeah, if possible I might want to stay in the hotel so as to be with everyone, but I obviously come last on the list. I could probably just find some friend who's willing to put me up for a fews days. Or a series of friends for a series of days. I dunno. I'll figure it out.
