Well for the first time ever me and my friend will be there on thursday. :o Since it looks like it'll be later we could probably make it, since it will depend a lot on traffic getting there from up in Wisconsin xD

Although the ride thing could be an issue just because once my parents park I don't think they're gonna leave :lol: If you get a parking spot generally it's a good idea not to drive. Hmmm

But if we manage to get there it would be great meeting some new people before Acen.

Last year my friend got her badge on Thursday so maybe if she does that again I can tag along to come to this?
It'd be super fun!
But as always my problem is transportation... >>
Oops can't afford to go to ACEN anymore! >:

Poor Katie, she paid without seeing the 'mail in badge' option so now she has to wait in the registration line thursday, and me with her (since I won't leave her there by herself)

So we've never gone thursday, any estimations on how long it'll take?

Hopefully (if this year is not the fiasco that last year was), it shouldn't take any longer than regular at-con reg. However, if it is , look forward to at least three hours of standing/sitting/dancing/meeting people in line.

Last time at Acen I didn't like meet anyone, so this sounds like a good idea for me. I'll have to see how things work out though. I'll probably need a ride.

Ha, I've only been once and it was a long time ago. I remember not liking it though.

Such an event is less about the food, I would imagine.

Oh! I'm referring to Steak 'n Shake! Not the meet and greet. I didn't realize how that sounded until just now.

So would a garbage dump, but its not a place I'd want to go to spend my time...but at least a dump has some edible food and the service is better.

Well, one of the additional bonuses is that it's open really late and all ages are welcome (as opposed to Gameworks or a bar or something). If you have a better idea we would hear it.

i'm sad that my attention span wouldn't let me stay at the meet n greet for long last time, but i'm planning on trying it again this year. It'll help that my hotel is the doubletree this year instead of the elmhurst holiday inn like last year ^^;

I guess i can go, seeing as my friends from boston will be attending...It'll be nice to see everyone again..some..more than others..and some vice versa...and of course the neutral ground of those i don't know yet :D

then, there are the 2 or 3 creepy people i will avoid because no matter how many times i try to give them second chances...creeeeeeeeeepy go away! (not naming names but you know what i mean when i say creepy)

i am in a debate on if i should show up in cosplay...part of me wants to just because...when it comes to cons....anything goes

And again dear norm, unless you can suggest a BETTER 24 hour joint with in reasonable distance..then shut yer trap... :p

Wouldn't have it been easier to just say you were going?
Instead of pointing out the fact that some people don't like you?
And the fact that you would be avoiding people was unnecessary.
You could have just done it, without a play by play.

Not to be excessively rude, but hey.

It's not like you're roleplaying. Nobody needs a play by play that you're avoiding people, or that people don't like you :X
Because obviously, if they don't like you, they already know. And the same goes for you.
So why not leave it at that?

i wasn't saying there were people who don't like me. i merely stated my excitement and non excitement to see some people <.<; is there anything wrong with that?

besides, this is a forum for discussing, and i was discussing so there :p
