Hello everyone!

Been traveling a lot lately. I probably shouldn't even start a note saying that, it'd only be news if I wasn't.

Wanted to give folks a heads up, mark out your calendars for Mar 30 - Apr 1 next year in Las Vegas for the 2nd World Fark Nascon Meetup Name To Be Determined Later. We're getting a much earlier jump on things this time. Probably going to be at Treasure Island again since they did right by us, but we're still gonna bid it out to make sure we're getting the best deal for you. We should have location locked down much sooner than we did last time.

We're also planning on leaving a lot of free time for folks to come up with their own mini-outings; this worked extremely well last time. So on that note, be thinking about a couple of things:

1) who would you like to see as guests next year?
2) what kinds of mini-outings would you be interested in hosting?

Run those around in your head and we'll revisit this in a month or so.

Even though I will be unlikely to make this, I just recommend lowering the decibel level of the locations picked. When stepping into a casino is welcome aural relief, things are too loud.

OH THIS!

Or I'd settle for Nathan Filion.... ;)

I date raped Pontius Pilates Class in Vegas this year, so as any serial rapist would do, I'll probably show up again with roofies and Cialis looking for fresh meat.

That was my suggestion, too. I'd just follow him around, drooling.

So then Drew will be providing us with free Peeps and chocolate bunnies? Can we get a liter strung up on a cross in Kahunaville while the bartenders blow whistles and pour liquor into peoples' mouths while there are smoke machines and strobe lights? Because otherwise, f*ck this.

You know who is an amazing guest? Red Green. I got to see him at a conference in Alberta, and he was great.

I think the best guest is an enemy of fark, get them so we can just make fun of the person all night.

I have plans to go to Vegas around that time, maybe i'll schedule it for around the party and hopefully learn a thing or 10 about drinking.

Easter Sunday lessens the likelihood I'll be going. Not because I think Jesus didn't want us all to get drunk and touch each other, but because Easter is a family shiat day

Is there any way to put chloroform in the smoke machines so that I can expedite the raping process?
 
2011-06-28 03:09:39 PM
whatever you do, get a better effing MC for your big Fark event than the douchebag you had this year

I've been desensitized to that sort of thing thanks to the homeless population of Chicago. Basically, to catch my attention these days, one has to fill out the following Madlib and scream it at me:

I WANT TO [verb] YOUR [body part], [adjective or noun][body part].

You have to share

Hopefully it has less creepy rapetowerishness this time.

We should do the bar crawl again because it was fun. It was even more fun the next day trying to remember everywhere we went that night.

Organized outings would be fun. Like, have people sign up for whichever outings they want to take part in, so maybe we could get a group discount if we have an idea of how many people want to go.

I brought mine, but she didn't really play. She was quite pleased that I went to strip clubs 2 different nights :)

She probably won't go next year :D
