Arrgghh. Bad timing Halloween weekend which is a big deal for us with kids up here. Maybe?
You've got my attention but my wallet is smacking me in the back of the head 😉 But I have no qualms about living vicariously through you!
*Sniffles*…I want to extremely bad, especially since Ayano Yamane is going to be there. But unless I can put my daughter in storage it ain't happening:)
How old is you daughter Melissa. I could bring mine and we could let them loose. Unless she's young then mine will shun her. LOL
Tam: Bummer. I had visions of us getting together earlier and having fun in Castro. 😦
Miranda: It's in October. Get a piggy bank. 😉
Melissa: Another no?? *sympathy sniffles* Storage sounds like a good idea. Just as long as it's not the same chest/trunk that you keep your yaoi hidden in. LOL.
Will there be lots of droopy, big-eyed, prepubescent cartoon characters in attendance? Yeah?
Aw, shucks. Still can't make it.
You're being sarcastic, aren't you.
Tam: My daughter is 10(who thinks she's about to be 21).
Kris: It's a thought but she wouldn't fit:)
Damn. Maybe we could dress her up as Naruto so that she can earn enough money posing for pics with people for her own babysitter while you and I hit the clubs at night. 🙂
That's my birthday weekend!
Let's see how the conversation will go:
me: hu-ub?hub: What do you want?me: For my birthday can I spend about £800 going to San Francisco for the weekend?hub: No.
I would love to go sweetie, but I can't see it happening. On the plus side I know for a fact that Clare London is going so maybe you can meet up with her.
A trip around the globe for the yaoi con? It sounds like a lot of fun but my poor wallet….
veri word: slamm, on my nose
Ingrid: Just think – 6 months to save… You can do it, Ingrid!
LOL, she would love that. She's a huge Naruto fan (as my poor wallet can attest). Though I can hear the comments of taking a 10 year old to an 18+ only con…I haven't even got up the nerve yet to give her the “talk” much less the alternative lifestyle “talk”…
It's about 700-800 eur for a ticket! That is ca 1100 aussie dollars. I don't have that much money lying around
Melissa: “Though I can hear the comments of taking a 10 year old to an 18+ only con…”
*ponders* Good point.
“I haven't even got up the nerve yet to give her the “talk” much less the alternative lifestyle “talk”…”
She sounds as though she might end up being the type of kid who will roll her eyes at you and say 'Mooooom. I know all this already.' LOL.
Ingrid: Have you thought about stripping?? I hear that's a good way to earn some fast money. 😉
Hmmm. My daughter would be 15.5. We could let them loose on SF. LOL Mine seems to think I should take her to Mexico City in June and just let her do whatever while I work all day. Hmmm. Maybe not? LOL
Tam: I was also thinking of dropping in on Vegas since I'll be in the area. I think. I reckon the girl child and I would have a blast there. I promise – no tattoos… for her…
Ingrid: Excellent. *beams*
Vegas is a little ways away from SanFran, (roughly about 9 hrs)…and I found it kinda boring (I'm not a gambler at all)
LOL, my daughter has been bugging the crap out of me to go on a cruise to the various Gulf/Caribbean Islands. She really wants to go to the Bahamas. The funny thing is that she wants to wait till her dad gets shipped off to Afghanistan before we go because “Dad's no fun shopping”
Melissa: “Vegas is a little ways away from SanFran, (roughly about 9 hrs)…and I found it kinda boring (I'm not a gambler at all)”
I'm not a gambler either, but I have this dream of standing in front of the fountains at the Belagio is it? and being all smirky cos I just ripped off 3 casinos. Oh, and I adore Elvis so I wanna go see an E impersonator conduct a random wedding.
“Dad's no fun shopping”
Tell her most Dad's aren't unless, of course, they're the ones holding the credit cards. Then you just put up with it. *g*
Gads. That sounds like an event with big crowds of people. Eep!
LOL. I promise I'll hold your hand, Chris. The Baby Brother has even agreed to house sit and look after the boy kittens. Whaddya say??
My veri word provides no guidance: pitrates. Pirates with armpit fetishes?
*puppy dog eyes*
Far be it from me to advise on living your life according to random moments, but, seriously, blogger veri?? What happened to fairy cards?
What the heck are fairy cards?!
Healing with fairy oracle cards. Do you not have those there??
Shit, I was hoping he would come with you so we could meet the mystery man. Not babysit your cats.
Come on Chris. You could take my kid sight-seeing. LOL
Again, what the hell are fairy oracle cards?!
Tam: “Shit, I was hoping he would come with you so we could meet the mystery man. Not babysit your cats.”
He's the one person who the boy kittens adore to death more than me. Actually, probably even more than me. LOL.
“Come on Chris. You could take my kid sight-seeing. LOL”
Chris: Gotta dash to a board meeting, but these are them: http://tiny.cc/oYYf8
“You're being sarcastic, aren't you.”
No. I wouldn't dream of it.
If y'all ever go to WisCon, though, I'll meet you there.

I'm up for it.
In my dreams.
Seriously, it all depends on what I'll be doing in the next months. *Sigh*.
Kris, if you go to Vegas you'll probably end up married [by an Elvis impersonator, of course] to some weird character without even remember how it took place… we all know that's what always happens in Vegas, right? Be very careful 😉
Ooo, I love San Fran. Wish I could go, but I've got a 13 yo son and an 11 yo daughter to take care of, so no trip for me. Boo. 😦 UNLESS, Chris wants to take my kids sight-seeing too since she'll be showing around Tam's daughter and all. *smiles sweetly at Chris*
I really like Vegas too, and I don't gamble either. But the shows are great– I think I've seen all the Cirque shows there now. You'd like Zumanity, Kris, 'cuz there's a bit with hot almost naked guys in a prison cell kissing and such. Nice. 😀 Also all the themed hotels are fun– like Disney for grown-ups.
Excellent. I shall spend the day coaxing all the little darlings with awkward questions to ask y'all when they're reunited with you. Also, feeding them too much sugar.
KZ: “No. I wouldn't dream of it.”
Isn't Wisconsin in the middle somewhere? I might be restricted to the west coast… for this trip at least. 🙂
Sara: It would be very cool if you could make it.
“Kris, if you go to Vegas you'll probably end up married [by an Elvis impersonator, of course] to some weird character without even remember how it took place… we all know that's what always happens in Vegas, right? Be very careful ;)”
It might be my only chance to get hitched. Also, an Elvis impersonator marriage! That's ace. I'm so there. *g*
Richelle: Chris is up for babysitting. Book it!
Boys kissing in prison cells. Hard core. Isn't there a new Cirque which is all about Elvis too?? I'm getting really excited now. LOL.
Chris: You're so awesome for being the volunteer child care professional. I'll help cos I wanna see the bridge, the trolley tram things and the fish throwing. It'll be fun, especially the part where we hand the kids back to the parents with sugar highs. 😉
I'm pretty sure I can get them sufficiently wound up that they'll be on hair triggers for puking, too.
Cool. I for vote sugar and junk food overload, trolley tram up and downs, and then the fish market. That should do the trick quite nicely.
Nah, already have plans to travel to roo land later in the year. AND the cost of traveling from here to the US would set us back over ten grand in NZ$. Erk. I'd have to eat carrots and mince for months to save for that.
NZ$10,000?? Holy fucking shit, Sarah! That's a bucket of dosh. I had a look today and for cheap seat it's about AUS$1,600 return, which is pretty damn good considering it's from Perth.
When are you coming to Oz again? I'm sure we've talked about this b4. I think. Maybe.
My kid never throws up, no matter how much sugar. Also she'll be getting closer to 16 than 15 so would likely ditch y'all if you are annoying her. LOL
*gasp* Ditch me?? But I will need someone who speaks North American continent!
I just booked my hotel room this morning!!!!! LMAO
Wouldn't miss it for the world, I've been going since 2004, even though I have to peel the ££ out of the family budget and book vacation for the long-haul trip. I usually go from Wed to Sun, to give me extra time to see some of SF and meet up with friends. And there's STILL never enough time!
It'd be MARVELLOUS if you made it! It's smaller than other major anime cons (I believe, though I've never been to any but Yaoi Con *heh*) and very friendly.
Bummer for Halloween I know, but my kids are older, plus we don't make such a season of it in the UK as the US. Hubby is reconciled to me going each year and him being on family duty :).
I'm not getting excited about Ayano Yamane yet because I've *twice* hoped to see Youka Nitta and she's pulled out both times.
But I *do* get the chance to wear my blue hair again…🙂
(look, I'm all squeaky excited at the mere thought of the weekend LOL)
I mentioned it to the kid and I think she's be willing for forego Halloween if she got to be in California for anything. LOL Obviously I don't think she can go to the con, but at 15.5 she'll be old enough to spend some time on her own and I am not such a yaoi freak that I would want to spend 3 days running around in a purple wig. LOL
She would hang with us otherwise no problem. I've never been to SF or California so it would be fun, have to take her out of school for a couple of days though. Oh well, it will be an education. Dare I expose her to the Castro?
Why not Tam?? Unless you want to drag her into clubs but I believe there is a kind of strict entry policy. It sounds like major fun.
I'll be booking my room and registering for the con over the next few days too. I also need to sit down with a diary and map of the US and work out how much time I can actually take off and what other places I wanna go on my whirlwind US west coast tour. 🙂
Tam: That'd be so awesome!! I was thinking… do you reckon we might be able to find a Rocky Horror show that we could go to while we're there?? That way the girl child could still have some fun for Halloween.
I'm with Ingrid – yes to Castro. No clubbing though. LOL.
I am so glad you will be taking the girl child Tam, she'll be able to give you both some measure of decorum I'm sure.
Quite possibly, Mumma. *hehehe*
I don't know if I've bathed in the yaoi bath enough for this year, but…can I visit vicariously through you please? And perhaps save up for next year, since I just came home from spending the most money EVER in my life!
Oh, what I wouldn't give for teleportation to be invented!
He's the one person who the boy kittens adore to death more than me.
Orannia: Was it good spending money (ie on you) or bad spending money (ie on other, house, car, etc)??
Yes, seriously. All three boys rough house and cuddle. It's enough to make you sick.
