Mini-meet: Palm Beach Saturday Evening 11/5/2005.

As mentioned in another thread, I'll be in Palm Beach on 11/5 and many of the Florida peaps have an interest in getting together for dinner. I've missed so many of the meets this year I feel like a ghost. I had wanted to attend the upcoming NYC meet, but that's not in the cards either.

So I'm flying in to PB in the afternoon on 11/5 and would love to see everyone before my conference begins.

Who's with me and what would you like to do???

Like I said, I can offer a place and dinner. Will you have a car? What time do you get in? How late can you stay?

Outstanding. At this point, no car, I'm in in the afternoon and I have no curfew. My conference begins on Sunday. I'm staying at the Ritz-Carlton.

I wanna come.

Even though you don't know me. (But I DO know Tracey, Buster, & EddyJ and they didn't try to kill me or anything at Hot-ami so I MUST be okay.)

We would love to come over but we could only make it for the evening and we would have to bring the kids. If that would work we would be in.

Edit: We would try to arrange an overnight stay so we could go to Sawgrass on Sunday.
So if kids are not a problem we should be in.

I shoulda been a lawyer. You are always going to conferences and staying in swank places.

I will make you an offer you can't refuse. Stay at my place overnight. My 2 kids have a bunkbed each (so 2 spare beds in the kids room), and the guest bedroom has two twin beds. So if you are interested, by all means let me know, and I will clear it with the boss. My kids will be here, so this would be a family friendly event.

You are required to come, even if Buster does not! Somebody has to make the drinks while I cook.

May I suggest you check with Hot4Bo. She lives in West Palm, and may be interested in coming to the mini-meet (I think it may be already too big for a micro-meet). She may not have noticed the thread, I don't know if she checks the meets area often. Otherwise, we need to figure some other way to get you here and back.

Geez EddyJ,

Even I knew that Thaed's a lawyer, and I'm the n00b girl.

And I thought I was forbidden from making drinks/serving anyone at meets?
Isn't that why I got kicked out of my own kitchen (not that I mind).

No, that was to prevent you from breaking anything else, and having a meltdown.

I will only let you handle plastic cups.

Thanks for the offer Eddy, I'll talk to Tracey about it. My eldest is very shy so I don't know how he will do but the youngest is very out-going so he should be OK.

I think my youngest will like Joules, he's very much the ladies man. No english accent though, sorry

Well, then send him to England and get him started. It will really help with the whole "ladies man" thing. How old are your kids, by the way? I'm guessing 4 and 7?

3 and 7.

I've tried to persuade Tracey to let me send them to boarding school in the UK (I went to a boarding school) but she's not having any of it.

I don't have any kids*, so I shouldn't have an opinion on this but isn't 3 & 7 a little young to send away? I'd have to side with Tracey on this one.

(*my goal is to be the second wife after the guy's already had the kids
- I'd much rather be a step-mom than a real mom)
(Tracey-I don't mean Roy's second wife, of course! )

Thank you for taking my side on this! And you are right, you wouldn't want to be Roy's second wife, because there is only one reason I would divorce him for and if he did that he wouldn't be of any good use to you!!

Maybe you should consider a rental program...

For $X you can have Roy come and read the phone book in your house. Other services available. See pricing chart.

No, when they reach 11 or 12. That's when I went to boarding school and look how I turned out

Eddy, are you offering to be my pimp

Well, Joules is getting pimped by DeeDee, and it seemed like a lucrative business opportunity!

BTW, I checked with the boss, so if you guys want to stay over at my place, you can..

Not to point out the obvious here, but isn't coming down to Broward County a little illogical.

I'm in Dade, EddyJ is in Broward...but aren't Thaed, TivoTracey, and Buster going to be further up north - closer to Palm Beach. And with Thaed being without transportation wouldn't it be better just to go to a restaurant near his hotel?

I mean, it's very sweet that EddyJ wants to make us a home cooked meal and invite people over to stay, but maybe next time?

Just a thought.

Also, I like Joules' idea. Good thinking!

My thinking was this. It we meet at my place, it is the least traveling all around. 0 for me, or course. 30-45 minutes for the Miami folk (who would need to pass within 10 minites of my house on the way to West Palm. Not sure of the time for Buster/Tracey (2 hours?), but I assume they would be coming on 75 and passing 5-10 minutes from my house, on the way to West Palm. We do need to get Thaed here, but that may be doable.

To go to West Palm, everybody (but Thaed) has to add another hour travel, after passing near my house. So that seemed to be a lot more traveling all around.

Is there a more direct route from Ft. Myers to Palm Beach? It seems to be almost directly to the west of it. Is there an East-West highway between the two of them? Maybe Buster or Tracey could shed some light on this.

I'm going to be the furthest from Thaed (I think)...but I don't mind driving to Palm Beach.

It was, of course, just a suggestion.
