FEAR of flying...

Postby SandChigger » 16 Jul 2009 13:50

I haven't been paying too much attention to KJA's blog lately (YAWN!) but decided to have a quick look at the RSS feed (that "Bring back Vorian" interloper post is still in the feed, btw. :lol: ) and really read the preface text in the WoD tour post (July 7) for the first time. Was reminded of this thread when this caught my eye:

Normally, we concentrate on the West Coast, due to Brian’s travel limitations. This year, however, Brian will be spending days on a train to head east.

"Travel limitations". My, my, isn't Kevin the clever coiner of euphemisms? :roll:

When is DragonCon? Will they both be there? That'll be a good way for you to kill two birds and get stoned. :lol:

Looks like the furthest south they'll get is Bethesda or Washington, DC. DragonCon is Labor Day weekend this year, so I imagine BoBo will be safely back in the vault in Seattle by then. Looks like Mahmet will have to go to the mountain, Freak. ;)

It's always Labor Day weekend, I believe.

Someone tell him there's a train from DC to Atlanta, I've got some questions for him.

Lawl! Nothing will make the HLP turn off his power and box him back up faster than the thought of the son of Frank Herbert getting embarrassed by one of the "five haters."

If you guys keep this up, they won't even thaw him out and let him get on the choo-choo ... :wink:

Hmm ... decisions, decisions: Which signing to fake an appearance at this year? :think:

:lol:

(Hey, Simon! See you in Cleveland?! :P )

Seriously, I'd love to be able to make the Toronto one. Get GP and BB there and we could gang up on TAZ. :D

Dammit there are haters of KJA & fanboys here in Texas too! Why do we have to have such crappy cons?

I have friends in NYC, but i doubt i could make it up there by August 4th.

Sadly, I'm west coast; out Omph's way.

Dunno if I could bring myself to go to a signing regardless. If I said what I wanted to say to KJA, I'd probably be ejected from the proceedings.

Since I can't make any of the signings this year (either), do you think it would be in bad taste to try to find out what hotels they're staying in and have Brian's room sent complementary booze? :P

(Have we properly harped on the extreme lack of moral fiber and individual will that alcoholism betrays?)


By the way, guys, GP will be OK initially since no one knows what he looks like, but BB will have to go disguised, since his face is all over Facebook. ;)

And that's the thing about signings: they are fanboy love-fests. Dissent is not tolerated. Telling KJA where he can stick his books would only result in ejection from the store, nothing more.

(Well, the look on his face would be funny ... albeit a temporary pleasure).

Got a good prank to pull on him. This happened to my co-worker a few week ago when we were in Cleveland.

In the middle of the night he got a call from the front desk saying that he should not go out of his room because someone had brought a bobcat into the hotel and let it loose in the hall on his floor. They told my buddy that they wanted to get the cat out of the hotel through his room. They wanted him to rip the toilet seat off of his commode adn throw it through the (third story) window, then open room his door and hide in the bathroom tub with his door closed. It was about this time that my friend started waking up and though "maybe I'd better call downstairs first." Of course it was a prank, but I can just imagine some guys outside of his room waiting for a flying toilet seat to strike a car in the parking lot below, laughing their asses off.

Last week we saw in the Sacramento paper that someone in Florida had fallen for something similar.

Funny, huh?

Dude, that is FUCKING AWESOME!

Maybe put the Jacurutu logo on the back, and I'd wear that shirt every day.
