Super-Fam Meetup Post #5

Man of Steel is a month away today, yay! Meetup is in Chicago, IL, June 14-15 (through 16 for some).

Can I get a final tally in the post of who is coming, who is not, and who might if the stars align? It's time to get those reservations made and such, so I can finalize plans. :)

This is what I have tentatively, please verify or correct me!

I'm not :/ Vacation is taking me to Utah the next week, so it's not going to work. But you guys have fun!

Aw, too bad! Hopefully you'll still be able to discuss it in a post-movie post! :)

Wish I could
We have to travel in the opposite direction for family needs -- otherwise I would LOVE to see you guys.

And now I'm not, as much as I hate it. There's been some serious health issues in the family in the last month. I'm loathe to bow out, but the money just isn't going to be there. I'm so sorry, Barb.

Oh noooooo. :( I'm so sorry, too. I was looking forward to seeing both of you, but of course, family comes first. *hugs*

It sounded cool, but, sadly, I don't think I'll be able to make it.
htbthomas
May. 14th, 2013 10:58 pm (UTC)
Aw, too bad. Maybe another one will work out later! :)

You already know kalalanekent & I are a unit - neither one of us is going to be able to make it. My dad's having some pretty serious issues; hopefully treatable though.

So sorry to miss y'all.
htbthomas

:((( I hope he gets better as soon as possible. *hugs*

Add another to the 'not coming' list. :( As much as I hate to miss the chance, we just don't have the money right now.

We *will* be seeing the movie right away, though, so I'll be here to chat. ^_~
htbthomas
May. 14th, 2013 10:59 pm (UTC)
Money is always an issue, isn't it? I'm so sorry you can't come either. But yeah, let's definitely chat after the movie!

:( Man seeing how everyone can't make it doesn't make me feel quite as bad but at the same time it bums me out, too!

Sadly I don't have the money - there's a family trip coming up (long story) and with the way things have been around here (another long story, lol) I can't get away again. I wish I could - I miss you!!

HUGS

((we should try to have a group chat though!!))

Yeah, it's too bad so many are having to drop! :( I'll still enjoy whomever is able to come, though.

Miss you, too! And def, a group chat. :)

I can't make it, but if anyone's in Seattle and wants to meet up, we can def do that!
htbthomas
May. 15th, 2013 03:49 pm (UTC)
I will try to push anyone Northwest your way, hopefully they'll comment here!
xenokattz
May. 17th, 2013 03:35 am (UTC)
If the stars don't align for me, I would love to do a Northwest meet up! I'm in Vancouver. :D

It would have to be the weekend though, not the Friday. Getting Friday off is part of the star-alignment.

Barring any last minute surprises, I'll be there.
htbthomas
May. 15th, 2013 03:49 pm (UTC)
AWESOME. I'll work up some place and time details once I have a final tally.

May. 15th, 2013 04:03 am (UTC)
As you posted above, that is still correct that I expect to make it but if there's this few, what then? Hopefully some of the interested but not yet confirmed will be able to make it or else this trip's going to seem pretty bare. :C
htbthomas
May. 15th, 2013 03:50 pm (UTC)
It IS going to seem lonely, but I think we can still have a nice time with a few. ♥ I'll try to get place and time things together soon.

I was thinking of a more suburban hotel location instead of downtown, because of money. Would you like me to make the reservation once we agree on a location?
athenesolon
May. 15th, 2013 07:23 pm (UTC)
I'm a little less constrained on cash now (hubby promised he'd pay for this trip if I graduated). I do think the suburbs might be a bit more difficult for me to get to simply because I'm planning on taking the train up, but I suppose I can take a cab from there if it's imperative (i.e. if priceline or a different reservation program ends up that way), sure.

There are suburbs with excellent train connections into Chicago. Check with the station you're arriving into and see where the local lines go. You might be able to get a cheaper room and still have good travel connections.
athenesolon

I also have the issue that I can't walk very far (I'll be six months pregnant during this trip) and it's been my experience in general (and that includes London) that the suburbs are laid out in a much less walk-friendly setup (meaning the hotels are far from the mass transit.) I'm not saying that it's impossible, just that it's more difficult. If I happen to end up with a suburban hotel I'll deal (I priceline rooms and hubby and I have had less than ideal accommodations transportation-wise in the past) it's just going to be a struggle.

I can't go :( I'm so sorry! I'll definitely watch the movie and be around to chat about it.

Also, Community renewal! How incredible is that? It made my week. Teen Wolf is coming back soon too...
htbthomas
May. 15th, 2013 03:52 pm (UTC)
AW. But it will still be fun to chat. :)

RIGHT? I was surprised the show kept the steam going. And honestly, though I'm burning out as a mod, I think I can handle another 13 in winter of 2014. :)

Teen Wolf looks so much darker for this year, wow. Hope it's as awesome as S1 and S2!

Not coming and so bummed about it. I'm pregnant and am trying to save as much vacation time as I can because I need to save it for maternity leave. My family would be way pissed if I only came for a weekend back home and didn't spend enough time with them since I don't see them very much. If any of you have any questions about Chicago let me know. I miss my hometown wish I could be there.
htbthomas
May. 17th, 2013 03:32 am (UTC)
Totally understandable. We'll miss you, though!

I wish you could make it but I understand.

I'm going to have to say no to Chicago in June. Both the location & the month aren't working with me this year for vacation times and I am SO. Bummed. ARGH.
htbthomas
May. 17th, 2013 03:33 am (UTC)
Ah, well, looks like it's a tough time for lots of people. I'll miss you! :)
xenokattz
May. 17th, 2013 03:33 am (UTC)
OKAY HOLD UP WAIT A MINUTE switch me up to "maybe." If I can swap my Friday away & pull in a couple over-time shifts, there's a chance I can make it. Is anyone willing to share hotels?
xenokattz
May. 17th, 2013 04:42 am (UTC)
Oh shoot, huge portions of this conversation happened when I was MIA from LJ. Has everyone figured out their accommodations already? I'd hate to throw a wrench into it because I'm in limbo.

May. 17th, 2013 03:27 pm (UTC)
She says we can swing it!

I'll PM you my email so we can work out details.
htbthomas
May. 17th, 2013 12:03 pm (UTC)
Well, we could try sharing three to a room? I'll email athenesolon and see what she thinks!

Unfortunately, I don't think I can make it. I hope you guys have fun though!

Aw. :( But I hope you'll get to see the movie wherever you are so we can chat about it! :)
