    I am starting this for Frank...

    dates this month:
    3/4
    10/11
    17/18
    24/25 (Thanksgiving weekend)

    November is tough for me, but Laura is coming in on the 3/4, so that would be an awesome weekend. I will be out of town 17/18 for the Star Wars exhibit in Chicago and 24/25 in the wilds of Kansas for Thanksgiving (well bird hunting).

    You got sucked into the bird hunting trip again?[face_laugh] During Thanksgiving?

    I vote for the weekend that Laura will be here. So far that's the only weekend that I know what I'm doing.

    If Laura will be in town - the 3/4 sounds good.

    Any ideas what we want to do? My house is open if we just want to meet up... or we could meet somewhere and do something tourist-ey... LOL

    I'm up for either. Just as long as I don't have to go up in that dang arch.;)

    I don't know how costly this thing is, but keeping with the season, how about a ghost tour of Alton, IL? http://www.hauntedalton.com/

    eek, ok never mind that suggestion. I just found out how much they cost, and I think it may too pricey ($45!), that and they discriminate, no drunk people allowed. What fun is it to be scared out of your mind if you can't do it while drunk.:p

    How would they know if we were drunk? I'd say the lot of us are pretty well composed in that state. [face_laugh]I'd love to go do that!

    That body exhibit dealy is going on at the Science Center, I think. I wanna see that too.

    I don't know that I am that keen on the Body Works exhibit, but I am game if that is what everyone wants. Because really I can't think of anything else that would be cheap and fun. :p

    I can't afford $45 right now, kind of in debt with my husband... but I would love to do that some day. I wish there was something like that but cheaper available.

    hey everybody,
    ok, first off, i'm really really REALLY sorry that i haven't been very active these past few months, but i've been kept busy in my hectic life outside... between finding a job, playing the part of relationship consoler and starting up a new venture of tailoring, i'm suprised i've had time to get sick... lol. anyway, enough babbling from me, i would love to get togather with everyone... i'm up for anything as long as it's not too pricey.

    Real life? What's that? My fantasy life is more fulfilling.;) By the way I need everyone to send their address so I can send you wedding invitations. Jake Gyllenhaal finally asked me to marry him.

    hehe, I really don't know who he is either, other than Amy likes him. :D

    And the only suggestion is the Body exhibit at the Science Center... and I am not sure how much that is.

    i went wnadering about the internet, and found the science center homepage, and went to their link describing the show, here's a [link=http://www.slsc.org/content.aspx?id=3255]link to that...[/link]

    and i went through the site and found this below, basically you have to preorder a ticket (or tickets, i believe you can order multiples) and it's about $18 us or so...

    [link=http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/06003EEDADDD7F27?artistid=1142830&majorcatid=10005&minorcatid=0 ]hopefully this works... lol[/link]

    anyway, thought i'd put that up there. ^_^

    You would bring that up...:p

    Maybe we could just do the Science Center and do the body exhibit before or after the actual meeting. I haven't been there for awhile. And I think food should be involved somehow.:D

    Last time i was there (two years ago as a school provided senior day) they had a whole range of food places at the science center, so we could do food there. question, have we decided on a date yet? i'm seeing the third/fourth weekend as the popular choice... i've no objections, my schedule is pretty open in the early of the the month.

    Sorry guys, this last week was a busy one for me... but only one more week and I will be totally done, well except the look for a job part. LOL

    But how about we meet officially at 2 or 3? I would rather do dinner somewhere else, just to save money (my motto lately, :p ). There is a BBQ place down on Hampton I have always wanted to try, but there are lots of places around there, if someone has a better idea. :D
