    Where: Downtown Providence (gather at my place)

    When: Sept. 25th (Time?)

    What:Spend some time in Providence and attend the Waterfire display that goes on throughout the city.

    Waterfire Site

    I figure we meet up at my house since I live about 10 minutes drive from Providence. I know a spot we can park for free and only a short walk to the Providence Place mall.

    Time is a question mark since I'm not sure if people want to get together sooner for some eats or just head there for some water fire. Let me know. The Waterfire display starts around 6.30 I'm assuming. They have that as sunset.

    Also, I know it says meet at my place but obviously there would be no problem meeting people in providence, just let me know.

    I'd love to eat with you guys...especially if we're going to be near a Cheesecake Factory. *drool* So that's my vote anyway. Whatever you guys want to do is fine with me. :)

    I vote for food but I say nay on Cheesecake! Not because it's bad but because the wait will be like three hours long a Waterfire night. Why don't we catch dinner somewhere else and then go to desert there late, when the crowds calm down some? I did that with friends once and it worked out nicely.

    Well I figure all dinner places are going to be busy, so a wait may be unavoidable. The earlier we eat the shorter the wait. We can worry about where exactly we'll eat when we get there and see how busy everything is. :)

    I figure the waterfire will start around 7 or so. If we meet together around 4-5...eating shouldn't be that bad. I'd say later and we would be in trouble. Of course I have no idea but you wouldn't have known that if I hadn't said anything =P

    I probably won't be able to meet any earlier than 5 because most likely I will be working until 4, although it could be three, so this post is essentially pointless until I get my schedule for that week. :p

    Well I say an essentially pointless post is better than no post at all. :)

    I just wanted to let you guys know, in case you don't frequent the Boston boards like you should (*ahem*), our September meet is the day after RI's. Our meet thread is here (please check it out if you plan on coming!). Another crazy double meet weekend, I know, but it worked out so well last month! I really hope you guys can come up again. :)

    I'm also going to post about the RI meet in the Boston meet thread. Maybe some more of us will be able to come down. :)

    There is a chance I'll have to miss this meet because that is the weekend of my mom's birthday and we're not sure how we are celebrating yet. If she comes to Providence then maybe it won't interfere because she usually only comes for the day but if she wants my brother and I to come home, then that's a no for me. I will do my best to show! (AND return Jeff's books!)

    I miss them so. I have been writing them letters. I hope you allow my books to read them.

    I'm going to set the meeting time at my house at 5 right now.

    If you will need to meet us there let me know. Not sure where we'll be dining, but if Rose has her way....

    This doesn't really pertain to this thread, but I didn't know where else to put it. Last year we (well you all) went to King Richard's Faire. I was wondering if that was a meet possibility this year as well (next month? since it runs to October 24). I've never been and would love to go. Since you all went last year I was wondering if it was worth it..anywho..that's all. I saw the sign last night and was lik..."hmmm." :p

    Later.

    It's fun, it's just really expensive. $20-some to get in, then food and stuff. I'm not opposed to going again, especially if we have a better turnout this time.

    I had heard that it was expensive. I was just curious about interest for it..

    Jeff, I was Event Coordinator before, that gives me the privelage to discuss whatever I want. :p hehe, just kidding of course.

    To get this thread back on track *peers at sara* wanted to just see if you guys could give me the thumbs up or thumbs down as far as if you'll be able to make it or not.

    I know its a couple of weeks away still, so whenever you know it would be great if you could let me know. Thanks =)

    Sure Rose, I'll just have to set up security measures around my Yoda bust to make sure he stays safe. Even though you made comments about his lightsaber!

    *comforts his yoda bust, "she doesn't know what she's talking about, no..no..I think its fine...what do you mean, what do i mean "fine"?...i just meant it wa....come on...you can't walk away...really, you don't have legs....no I'm not making fun of you, you seriously have no legs!*

    Who bored?

    I won't be able to be at the meet with you guys due to work. I will, however, by at Jeff's house to meet with you at 5pm. Once everyone is there, I will hand out the prizes to our Trivia Contest contestants. I will be able to stay for a little bit, but then off to work I go. :(

    woah...talk like a pirate day. ar! me likes!!

    okay..where was i...oh yeah, waterfire.

    i most likely will not be able to attend waterfire only because the 25th also happens to be my anniversary with tom! so i'll be doing the whole dinner/night out thing.

    but there is hope, young padawans. king richards faire does not so easily escape my wrath.
