    I always wanted to do a self-indulgent rant about how I was leaving that 2% of TBers would care about. So I'm outta here. Forever. Or until a week from Monday, whichever comes first.

    In reality I'm headed to New Orleans for a big convention for work. Which sounds like fun except that I'm giving over 40 presentations in 3 days (mine run Thursday through Saturday every half hour). And both my flights (Tuesday and Sunday) leave at 6 am.

    If there are any N'awlins TBers that want to try to get together, give me a shout out and the first round is on me.

    I work for a science education company and we have a major new product to promote.

    Sounds like fun and, just for the record, I'm glad you're not leaving for good, BigO - I always find your posts to be down-to-earth and well-reasoned.

    Thanks for letting us know that your gear will be left unattended for a week. I'll let you know how my new Stambaughs sound when you get back.

    I don't know if you ever graded Golden State exams but that's where I learned to sweet talk waitresses into writing up 4 scotches as "appetizers" for the sake of my expense report. ;)

    Personally I'd wait until my December trip to Chicago to rob me, since my New ACG sixer is scheduled to be done in November. ;)

  16. Talk to me, Goose. Obviously, it won't be the same airborne trip your last visit was, but since you dumped Sophie The Lingerie Model I can be honest and say it wasn't you I was trying to impress. By the way, my meth dealer got busted, so that'll be a little harder to come by. Where are you staying this time?

    Oh, and what are you doing bringing science into this state? I though we outlawed it. :confused:

  17. I seriously dig your arsenal of movie quotations.

    Ah, what a great movie.

    In related news, the best of luck to you, man.
