    Yeah John it's perfect, we saw that and thought of you and Christina did almost buy it, with the idea that she got to keep the hologram. LOL!

    Nibbor11, thanks! Most of us who are going are riding together, except for our two airplanians. LOL! :p

    Okay...my back is killing me from cutting fabric at my kitchen table, my fingers are blistered from hand-sewing faux suede, my new tattoo itches like mad...and to top things off, I GOT BITTEN ON MY LEG BY A BROWN RECLUSE THURSDAY NIGHT. No lie. So, I guess no shorts for me in Atlanta. Really, it's *that* ugly looking.

    Sigh...methinks the gods are against me...

    How many days is it now?

    Ok, everyone, bring your raincoats. By the forecasts, there is the remnant of a hurricane that is going to hit on Friday...

    Ugh! Will we have to travel on the streets to get everywhere or is it all connected somehow?

    ahhhh, Amy did it all by herself. :D They look wonderful! My petticoat is done, but I had to spend two hours fixing Steve's mess that brought down our network, so I am almost out of time to get the over skirt done, and the hundred other things that need to get done before Wednesday...

    But the hurricane seems to have weakened and changed course somewhat so hopefully, Laura you and Dajuan won't get into a mess...[face_praying]

    Oh, and Christopher Judge has cancelled too. Darn it. :mad:

    Hey people staying in my room, I'll bring toothpaste to share if someone else brings body wash, like the liquid kind. I don't have any and I hate using the little bars of soap they supply.

    <2 days now!!

    I thought toothpaste was on the banned list for flying. Not sure about that though.

    It is banned for carry on, so I'll either check it or put it in my other bag. Contact solution up to 4oz is not though, strange. (Yes I looked up the whole list the other day, was worried about my makeup.)

    Glad to hear you had a safe trip home. Four days of that much fun really does wear you out. Today I am doing nothing but sleeping and vedging. So good to be home.:D
