She said that is cool! Hooray, QC Forum sleepover

Hey people, if my calculations are correct it is officially pretty fuckin' close to when this "Thang" is supposed to be happening. I'd be really happy if there was some news, particularly on that apartment? Sorry to be pushy.

No idea what's going on with the apartment. I'm around, counting on the people who said they'd show up to show up.

I'll double, triple, and quadruple check about you staying with me that week and get back to you ASAP Dovey.

Sorry about the lack of updates. We've broken down and are looking into hotels (we're trying to get multiple rooms on a single floor, connected if possible) in the area now. A few dozen requests for apartments either met with silence or a notice that it was taken for the weekend. One we got a response from was a Nigerian phishing scam.

But yeah, this weekend we are going to be getting some info on what's being finalized. I think Kat is planning on sending out a Facebook message today to folks for some more detailed info on how much everyone is willing to spend on hotel rooms.

This is looking seriously unlikely for me, guys. If my car hadn't needed to be replaced upon my return from Sydney, it would be another story, but being out $4k is just too much for me to cope with right now.

Shit the closer this get it seems the less I'm able to save. I'm really on the wire right now. Luckily Bus rides are cheap and New York only costs about 36 bucks round trip, but on top of 200 bucks for a room, more for food and with a little extra money for emergencies and possible fun times I'm going to need to save a solid 500, and right now I'm sitting at around 130. Basically if I don't spend anything at all beyond gas and necessities from my next two paychecks and borrow like 50 bucks from my dad I can go. I don't know how likely borrowing money from my dad would be.

It's a pretty sure thing.

Frank Turner is very high up on my list of Dudes To See (especially cos he played in Perth in May and I did not go because I couldn't afford it/didn't care about any of the other dudes playing) so it works out quite nicely, especially if there is a prospect of another collection of QC people being there. I was originally planning on going up along the East Coast and then heading back down past Tronno on my way to ATP Fest in the Catskill Mountains but there is absolutely no reason why I can't do that in the opposite direction with Buffalo straight after NYCon (such as it is) followed by Niagara Falls and Tronno

Quick note about the Canadian vs American side of Niagra falls, US side is like a state park where you can walk down and stuff and generally isn't very developed, Canadian side is kinda like Disneyland, Maids of the Mist ride out of there, etc. Either way you won't need the day unless you're gonna do the other stuff around the area, like I think there's a gorge you can ride a thing across and whatnot.

What he means is Canada = PARTY!, US = boring. Steve, Kat, Jace and I were at the US side once, and mostly we just gazed over at Canada and how much fun those people were having. Then we had Denny's. Then I wanted to die. Thanks America!

Hey guys, apparently Huda has an empty room in her house that weekend and is offering it to you guys.

I would talk to her and take that offer if it's still available!

Details are sparse but as far as I can tell that's where I'm planning on staying, though recently I've been having nightmares involving me roasting on a spit over a fire in a loft somewhere in Brooklyn.

The last time I went to Huda's house she smoked me up and fed me tortilla chips with homemade curry, salsa, and guacamole dips. Then I pet her dog.

The time before that she agreed to be woken up at 4 AM to let me and my then girlfriend in because we needed a place to stay for the night.

She's actually an awesome chick.

(So everyone, what sides are we serving with Phil roast?)
