Awesome. Grand Hyatt sound good? 466 for the regular 2 double beds, 506 for the two GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND double beds. The only difference they mention is that one has... Grand Double Beds. Not sure what that means, but I'll clarify it with them before I purchase. Want to PM me to discuss shit?

Weak. Also, explain why.

Kitalas post much explains it. I'm not looking for a "HEY LET'S GET DRUNK AND DO STUPID SHIT" time. I want to meet people, have a drink or two, and talk. Just walk around seeing the sights and enjoying a few laughs. Maybe this is how all meets are, but that's not for me. The more posts I see like Kitalas the less I want to come.

That's pretty much what will happen--if you're seeing this meet (or most other similar NG meets) as just consisting of drunk NGers running amok, then you couldn't be more wrong.

I guarantee you it is not a drunkfest. There's a few members that will get hammered, but most of us for most of the day will be entirely sober. Was a great time just relaxing with people last year, and we separated into little groups pretty quick and hung out all day. It was a bit like High School with (mostly) adults, except there was no dick clique. We all hung out for the most part and talked to all of each other, but obviously certain personalities will attract other personalities, so then we just separated out, like in any situation. Made it feel more intimate though. Very intimate.

I'm not gay. I'm not gay. I'm not gay.

Yeah I fall into a very deep depression in February. Considering my current state of mind, it'll be good to have something to look forward to. Only seen NYC in the winter three times, so... Will be somewhat interesting.

I assume this meet is still happening, despite all the freak snowstorms shutting down every major airport.

Of course. If there's any inclement weather situation going on around the time of the meet, then I'll do what I can to make sure everyone is adequately prepared. Last year, we were hit with a massive Nor'easter. Right now it's too early to tell what will happen, if anything, but I keep track of the weather here every day.

No worries.

If you get drunk and naked, I'll loan you my jacket and make sure you don't take advantage of any of the other NGers.

I wont be doing either, but thanks love. I'll have a few drinks, and I'm definitely going to do another shot of chocolate cake like last year because it was amazing. But as for getting naked, the boyfriend would probably be concerned, and I would too--so that would never happen.

I think if there's as bad of weather as last year ill not go. I know not everyone is in a position to make a decision like that but yeaaa, that was absolutely dreadful last year and if Tom can cancel his appearances based on having kids, I can do so on the grounds that i am not laying in bed sick the day after a meetup.

So is Tom officially out then? That's too bad. What about the other staffers? Are you canceling out right or just saying that you won't make the trip should it be too shit of weather? It's getting close, so it'd be cool to know who officially is coming from the staff. If the list on the meetup site is final for staffers, then :(

No excuses Stuporman, you must show up. "maybe, probably" isn't good enough.

So.. is there a list of NG's that are definitly showing up?
Is there a list of maybe's?
Is there a list of everyones ages?

there probably is but im at work right now and cant lurk like crazy for it.

I live in NYC so im definitely going to be there. I might have a new job at the time so i may not be available to hang out every-single day but as its going right now ill be there everyday.

This thing is just a little over a month away. Regarding the weather... guys its NYC. We already had our one fuckup cleanup of the season. Mayor bloomburg wouldn't let that happen twice in one season because frankly he doesnt like the city to look bad on a certain issue more than once a year. But i completely understand people not showing up because it is actually blizzarding the weekend of the meet.

If there isnt a list of definites ill make one up if need be.

This is the best list we have so far.
It may need some updating though. Some people might not decide they're coming until almost the last minute, like Tom for instance.

A NY Meetup would be more ideal May/June's time. NY weather is just terrible 10 months of the year.

No, fuck that. The colder the better. Plus, NYC and Long Island are some of the warmest regions in NY State all year round.

Then maybe you should organize an Alaska winter meetup sometime in the near future.

I say neutral weather, like late spring or early fall, would be more ideal for everyone. But that's just my opinion.

Why do you like extreme cold anyway? Are you like Mr. Freeze or something?

I personally blame my love for cold weather because of ancestry. Native American in Northern Vermont/Quebec, as well as family members from Northern England, Scotland and Ireland. My family that immigrated in the 1600s came to New Hampshire and stayed there, so the cold is just sort of... In my blood, if you get me. Winters are comfortable to me, and I wear t-shirts in temperatures down to about 25. Summer, I barely go out. It's miserable to me. I feel most comfortable right around 50-60, and any hotter, I don't stay outside for more than 5 minutes without finding air conditioning.

Man, fuck the electric bills in the summer.

Not sure if it's the same for Gory, but I know a few others with similar ancestry that are the exact same way. Probably just a hair thing.

The only problem is that I've never been to Alaska before. I know too little about the geography of Alaska, and I can't think of any regs here offhand that live over there.

Kind of. My body responds well to bitter cold for the most part and very badly to heat. Heat makes me exhausted very quickly and sometimes too much of it can drive me to unconsciousness.
