I get to go to the Instructables HQ! Answered

Yesss!

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...

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.

: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.

True enough, except if someone is still a nobody at my age, they are considered pretty much a loser.

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.

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.

3 months ? One week with the wife per month is enough.
