I hope to meet up in New England again sometime in 2018.

Would love to join but there's no way I can swing this. I'll be cooking most of the day and hosting family that evening.

Dang it Jim.

That's a possibility.

It occurs to me that Logan may not be the location most conducive to festivity nor convenient parking.

Please suggest other places and be prepared to point me in the direction of the airport later in the day.

Ah, bummer. I’ll be out of town ☹️

I'm bondcliff's birthday AND name twin (first and middle names only) — so IF I am available on 12/30, I could meet you somewhere Cambridge-ish and then point you toward East Boston. However, take with a grain of salt; I am unsure at the moment what my (higher priority) exact plans are.

All I'm sayin's I may not be an adequate substitute for bondcliff's scintillating physical presence, but hey, you get what you get, at least astrologically and name-wise. If I even show up. Now ain't that welcoming?

Four out of five MeFites agree that he's an adequate surrogate bondcliff.

I may be up for this, wherever it may be. I'm not bondcliff nor bondcliff adjacent, though, my apologies.

Aw, no one needs to feel they must channel, live up to or emulate bondcliff or his scintillating physical presence.

Everyone is welcome whether you're bondcliff or just aspire to be.

I'm gonna add the word scintillating to my resume though.
posted by bondcliff at 7:07 PM on December 21, 2017

I believe “scintillating physical presence” is the correct term.

Also, if you can’t convince bondcliff to be there I would buy all your drinks that night and possibly for the rest of your life if you brought fucking kevin.

I have met bondcliff and used to be neighbors with not_on_display, if that helps.

Perhaps somewhere in the vicinity of South Station, like Chinatown, might be good? That would be an easy area to get to Logan.

I can make a robotic dog out of beer bottle labels if that helps.

Ok, so for some reason I had it in my head that this was today. I might actually be able to make this after all. Yay!

I agree somewhere around South Station would be good for all. Chinatown if fine, or anyplace one can get a beer and some food.

I copy everything boncliff does.

1. Ha ha!

2. Sadly I didn't make it to my plane on time or on time to the rescheduled plane. I'm not coming to Massachusetts. :(

3. ????

4. Please carry on with the meetup without me. Also profit.
posted by bendy at 4:51 PM on December 27, 2017

I like the profit part!

Was that by design?

Was that by design?

It wasn’t. It was too much time in the airport bar. 😐

Please be strong. Boston strong. ❤️

yo bendy i think this is just going to show up in the IRL "proposed" feed until the end of time unless you delete it.

Though I suppose we could just keep it there forever so I can at least pretend I have the prospect of a future social engagement.
posted by bondcliff at 6:32 AM on January 9, 2018

I could change the year so it's 2018.

Not sure how to delete it. Since the date has passed it seems like it should have fallen off the list.
posted by bendy at 11:12 PM on January 11, 2018

I'll give it another week or two so you can pretend a little longer and then if it's still there I'll contact a mod.

Man, what a great meetup. It's been a long time since I ate at a TGI Fridays. So glad to meet you all! Very sorry about the fire but the fire chief said it's not the first one he's seen start that way. Next time I promise I won't just run out of the restaurant, but maybe try to help put it out.

ShakyPete, it was nice to finally put a name with the face.
Bonzo_Mindbender, good luck with the move.
AlvinQ, your children, Braydyn and Tevis, are charming.
MaryTylerLess, I still owe you $5.00 for my share of the Jack™ Sliders. Can I eWallet you some Bitcoins?
MiHail, that dish you were eating looked really good. I'd never heard of portabello mushrooms before but I just googled it and I guess it's a thing?
ou813, please keep us posted about your rabies treatments.
Chris Pine, I had no idea you were a Mefite. Good luck with your film career. I'm really looking forward to A Wrinkle In Time.
not_on_display, I didn't recognize you without your beard. I hope Scientology works out for you. Godspeed.

Thanks for organizing it, Bendy. Sorry you couldn't join us. It was so much fun.

Also, sorry I doubted you could bowl a 300 in candlepins, bendy! You sure proved us wrong. It was worth losing the $50K bet in order to witness a perfect candlepin frame. Don't spend it all in one place!
