Plan alterations  
Some wrenches have been thrown in the Gimli-Coronation plans, but I think I am on the way to developing a new Plan, the essential elements of which are:




I will drive to Nordskogen alone after work on Thursday and crash with local folks.
Friday morning we will drive up to Gimli and I will be working like a crazed maniac on a Seekrit Projeckt until my fingers bleed.
Friday-Saturday-Sunday-Monday: Gimli!
Monday: drive back to the Twin Cities with the carpool, skipping the planned stop-over in Winnipeg.
Monday night-Wednesday morning: Hang out in the Cities or somewhere between the Cities and Bemidji.
Wednesday afternoon: Drive to Bemidji
Wednesday night-Thursday: Teach some classes, hang out with the Orlova Dolina folks, probably sit in the hot tub, sip some Scotch
Friday: Help set up Coronation, settle into the cabin
Saturday: Coronation:
Sunday: Head home, collapse.

So, I'll have about a day and a half in the Twin Cities - I have an IKEA gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket and it is heresy to visit the TC without stopping at SR Harris, so those are likely stops. Anyone want to hang out or have other suggestions of what to do?

Our place is available for you to crash, if you'd like. Very close to ikea... :-) We have two very sweet little cats. I'd love to hang out at some point.

Sadly, I have kitty allergies, so staying is out, but I'd love to visit. When are you free? Are you interested in an IKEA field trip?

Possibly interested, if it was in the evening. Of course, the best time for an ikea trip is during the week during the day. If you go without me I'll understand. I might still pout. On the other hand, I live about 1 mile from ikea, so I'll probably survive. :-)

(Which reminds me that I want to go there this week to see if any of their cheap curtains will work for mosquito nets for Gimli bunks)

You'll be hitting the Twin Cities right around the time (same day) that Cap flies in from Ghana. She'll be heading to Hudson, but still! :)

She's done Peace Corpsing! (That kind of looks wrong, but it sounded all right in my head. Go figure.)

Gimli won crown? Are they going to let him have Legolas as his other king of love and beauty? Hrm... I get the feeling that I might not be with entirely the right program.

LOL!

;P No, wrong channel.

However, there WAS a question on the SCA Census about same-gender or same-sex consorts, so that may not be out of the question some day.

I will have your Fire Mountain stuff by then if you want to get it early.
eithni: peekabooeithni on September 1st, 2010 05:02 am (UTC)
Oooh. Perhaps. Where in town do you live?
Petranellapetranella on September 1st, 2010 01:16 pm (UTC)
In St Paul, right off 94 at Lexington or I work in Roseville if you want to do a pickup during the day. For that matter I can leave stuff in my porch if I know you're coming so you can pick it up at your convenience.

Sorry, I've been pretty much offline and just got this. I'll just plan on seeing you at Coronation. Thanks!

Sorry, I have been largely offline and so am WAY behind on messages... i'll just see you at Coronation. Thanks!

Monday night-Wednesday morning: Hang out in the Cities or somewhere between the Cities and Bemidji.

You're welcome to come hang out with me and the baby for part of that time, if you like. Email me!

:) Cool. Are you up for IKEA, or no? When are you free? And I'm not sure I have a current email/phone number for you - send it to me privately.

Sure, IKEA is fun. I would suggest taking the light rail there instead of driving. Sure, there's no shortage of parking, but taking the light rail is more fun.

And at the moment, my schedule is free pretty much all the time, though I am trying to change that (= applying for more part-time jobs).
