I'm getting there friday evening as well. Hopefully, I'll make the dinner, but I've got an quasi-annoying-five-hour-friday-rush-hour trek to make. I'm excited to meet you all as well. Yeah, and my avatar resembles me insofar as it's human . . . though what I wouldn't give for decent facial hair. Alas.
i'm one of the people helping to get second look together for you guys - actually, i've been the one responding to all your rsvps - in case you were wondering, about 50 people have said they are coming, so it should be a good time!
don't worry about coming later on friday - you'll miss our lil' intro and a tour of the sim lab and our huge gym, but you'll make most of the fun stuff we have planned for you.
