I get to go to the Instructables HQ!


I am leaving to Yosemite on Thursday, renting a hotel.
Then the next day (Friday), I am going to hike or whatever.
Then we go back to the hotel.
Saturday morning, we start out to San Francisco.
We get there around... I dunno, 3 or 4 or something?
I won't be able to make it to Yuri's Night, but the next day (Sunday), Eric and I are planning on meeting at the HQ at around 11 I guess.

This is gong to be sweet.

Sorry the images lack color...

I can't believe this happened when I was just a kid... HOW CRAZY IS THIS?!
Hey, when I went, I was about the oldest person there, it was still crazy-fun.
Times are fun when you're having flies.

WHY does everyone ELSE get to go? What do you have to do? Do you have to bribe somebody? Pay somebody? What??? Oh, I'm sorry, congratulations.
Hey!I wasn't even greeted by the bot,let alone being an intern!
I'll greet you!
:) Also, why cant you go?(Don't have to answer.)
:D I was just a newbie back then. Since, I've actually been invited, but couldn't go due to unavoidable scheduling conflicts. Hopefully next summer. Maybe.
ah HEM ! everyone else? Does that mean I am a nobody since I don't "get to go?" LOL
I'm a nobody too, ya know!
Oh, ok I didn't know your statement was self-inclusive :-)
We nobodies gotta stick together...
True enough, except if someone is still a nobody at my age, they are considered pretty much a loser.
I'm not a loser, I'm a winner...I've won prizes off the radio many times. I stopped counting at 35. the DJs know my name and address, etc.
I didn't say you....I said me (if you get to be my age, as I have, and haven't accomplished things). So much I have wanted to do and have not really accomplished any of them.
Trying to steer the conversation to be cheerful...sorry you haven't accomplished everything you want though...
Well, I never expected to accomplish everything.....a few things would be nice :-) But I am the one that should be apologizing....I shouldn't be online when I feel depressed. Sorry if I have put a damper on things here.
You need some chocolate. Or some sugar.
Sugar makes me sleepy, and good pure chocolate makes me mellow :-) It has to do with the upcoming HOPE convention in NYC, it will be the last one at the Hotel Pennsylvania, and it looks like I had a shot at going finally. But my wife doesn't want me away for all three days nor does she want to come along. I was reminded of this moments ago, when I answered a post in the HOPE discussion forum at the 2600 site. And so I got temporarily depressed *sigh*...the depression will pass, as will the HOPE convention it seems.
You need vitamin B...
Really, I would rather just have the 3 days at the convention :-)
aww that sucks. can i join the people who didnt get to go to ibles hq club? i doesnt look like im going either.

I need to join.
This is still future: July 18-20 HOPE: HOtel PEnnsylvania
I am referring to the HOPE con in NYC....just a few hours drive or by train.
Yea, verily!
I just noticed ur going through mid-life crisis! which explains why ur always down. Turn that frown upsidedown!!!!! TURN IT!!!! TURN IT!!!

thats right....

I am not ALWAYS down, but I have my (extended) moments :-)
do 3 month periods count as moments?

that sounds weird....
3 months ? One week with the wife per month is enough.
Oh, I am never depressed that long :-) I may be "on and off" for that long, but that is never a continuous condition with me :-)
you sound like the robot marvin from a hitchhiker's guide to the galaxie.
hopefully from the radio show, not the crappy movie.
This will all come to tears, I just know it...... :-)
then you should support my Instructables Awards Idea. Then you'd get the most comments prize and be a winner!!!
And for first prize......a round trip around my back yard.... :-)

*rushes off to find a new prize...*

First you need to pay me $100. Then you may ask Eric if you can drop by and say hi... ;-)
Damn, he sees right through me...
She sees right through you...
Monk had a sex change? Man, he - sorry, she - is even more screwed than I thought! :-D

Adrianna Monk - hmm...
I've always been female!!!!!!!!!

Don't you watch "Monk" on USA????
My user picture isn't of me.
Yeah, I knew that - just poking fun at you. After all, "Adrian Monk is female" would be an interesting twist in the TV series, don't you think? ;-)
I know you were poking fun - I was pretending to freak out! :D It would be an interesting twist indeed...
I like Monk, but that's just scary.

...I'm confused...

Adrian isn't Adrian, she is a TV series?
My, how things change in 6 months...
Some of us don't...
Adrian monk uses the picture of the Character Adrian Monk, from the TV detective series: Monk. As the character, Tony Shalhoub plays Adrian Monk.
Oh.... I'd always assumed that the pulled-up collar was just shyness...
Lol! I love Monk. So I picked that as a username. I got the picture from the internet. That's not what I look like at all...lol Watch Monk on USA!
Here. Maybe I'll use this image to avoid confusion...It's the main characters.
But you, the person posting as "Adrian Monk", you are female?

My head hurts. I need a coffee
Female and proud of it. :)
Minus, I hope, the Monk psychosis's ? ;-)
Haha, yes.
If I remember correctly Tony Shalhoub's character on Galaxy Quest was a little less neurotic and more quiet, shy, and just unsure of himself.
He was so funny on Galaxy Quest! "Are you crazy? This is an uncharted planet! You don't know what's out there! Is there air? You don't know!!!" (Tony breathes in and out) "Seems okay..."
Quite right, too.
Yes, Adrianne is the woman on the left. (Sowing confusion wherever I go...)
From now on, I will call you Patricia.
As long as you spell it with a k...

I believe that particular picture is from the pilot episode, where he is surrounded by a group of sick children who are coughing, sneezing, and eating boogers. Adrian suffers from OCD. He has 312 phobias. Here's the top 15: 1) Germs 2) Needles 3) Milk 4) 5) Snakes 6) Risk 7) s 8) Heights 9) Crowds 10) Elevators 11) Disorder 12) Darkness 13) Enclosed spaces 14) Dirt 15) Spiders

i know someone who has a phobia of bananas. no really it's true!
Bananas? Really?
yes i already said really. lol yeah it's true t'was so funny at school when someone had a banana she ran right to the back of room, only to be standing next to a banana box!
Wow. That's messed up. The only time I'm like Monk is when i'm loading the dishwasher. There are eight compartments to put forks, etc in, I have to put them in one at a time, counterclockwise. Otherwise it bugs me. It isn't neat!
Tis one of his many phobias (this one having to do with germs most likely). :-)
Um no, I thought you were male...
...and now you've lost all respect for me? Is that it? Huh? :) jk
Nope, you've just had your respect get increased ten fold LOL.
LOL. Not many women around here?
Well, guys are the majority around here. The yarn contest brought quite a few (suspected) females, but few stayed.
I stayed! I did originally sign up because of the yarn contest, but now I get on Instructables pretty often, I just don't add much to a conversation, mostly because I'm not a very interesting person.
Aw don't....don't say that to yourself...... You...you're.....you're not......aww
Phew! I thought you wouldn't get the joke!
I never get his jokes...
neither do I. All you can do is laugh and nod...laugh and nod...
Maybe its just you?
Here are 3 others.....Sunbanks, Corinna.anni.roc, and Lisa.mucci
Did anybody remember me? (I'm a girl)
My apologies HK, yes I figured you were probably female but wasn't absolutely sure.
That's OK. But really. My aviator used to be pink, and know it's a Kitty with a bow. I don't know any guys that would be comfortable with either of those :-).
I have run into a few (some hair dressers and a few room decorators...) ....well, you know.....I never assume :-)
Anyways, nice to make your acquaintance Ms Kitty :-)
Nice to know you never assume :-) p.s. I was just kidding. I wasn't trying to be mean or rude :-). Please don't be offended at anything that I say, I never mean to be unkind - usually I'm just kidding, all in good humor, right? :-)
I know, I was just "playing along", I hope I did not offend.

Yes, all in good humor (didn't he used to sell ice cream? The Good Humor Man.... ) ;-)
HAHA LOL! Don't worry, I am rarely offended, pretty much the only thing that offends me is the use of bad words. Usually I find that since there are no hand gestures, facial expressions, etc, people tend to get offended easily because they don't understand that you're just kidding. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't offending and didn't seem rude or mean.:-)
Nope, you were fine.....I actually ask if I have offended others way too often (ask someone that has been around awhile LOL)
:-) another way to say that is that I have been told that the only way I annoy and offend is by asking "if I offend", too often :-)

Yeah - the apologizing for your imaginary insensitivity is really getting on my nerves! Oh yeah: ;-)
Goodhart Patrik8 years ago
Well, it did get on some people's nerves when I started here......it was very excessive back then...
Poor Goodhart...:)
I just have to have a little more confidence and a little less self-disrespect, and not assume I am making everyone miserable all the time ;-)
