Hey all you SoCal peeps. I will not be extending my visit to LA in November. Work has been slow so I won't have the vacation time to come out the weekend before the drive back to Chi-town. I will be coming out there either Tuesday the 10th, or Wednesday the 11th.

I'd go quietly .... otherwise they might put you in with the Spice Girls in lockup ... or worse, the Backstreet Boys gang. U2 can have Nirvana in a Savage Garden.

Pretty sure I wouldn't want any of The Kinks to Kiss me. I could bribe them all with Eminems and Lovin' Spoonfuls of The Cranberries. Or maybe I'd just make some Hot Chocolate with Cream, although Korn and Black-Eyed Peas are more nutritious.

Edit: And if this post doesn't highlight my ignorance of true behavior of The Jailbirds, I'm Mott the Hoople.

Be careful, all that food may start to attract Beatles. Beware because Here Come The Mummies to get rid of the Insane Clown Posse that has some extreme Rage Against The Machine. With any luck this Story Of The Year will be over by Thursday.

Just make sure your Bangles don't get tangled up during your Journey to the Culture Club. Try their Bananarama pie when you get there. And watch out for the weird Foreigner, he might try to give you Guns N Roses.

And don't forget to say hello to the Queen and Prince in Chicago, while you are going thru there. But watch out for those Village People. They stay at the YMCA a lot.

I'm going to have to hypothesize that labrats will only continue for the Monday (full week availability until sellout) offer.

Cheron will have to update her post once we know the new details...

Unless WD includes the new offer in with the other labrats. As sometimes previously done when time is short.

When will you be here? (yeah, I'm that good at not following the boards) Are you going to be visiting my (and Sparky and Java's) neck of the woods?

-- T



Right after Vegas. I'm taking a long vacation, so right after Vegas I'm heading out to Newport Beach (10/21 - 10/25). Planning on a day maybe 2 in San Diego (one day of which will be at Sea World where I have reserved some play time with dolphins). But we can all totally get together at any point while I'm out there. Aside from Sea World, I have no plans set in stone. Going for the relaxed-California lifestyle for a few days

I haven't had the 1999, but I also haven't had a Mount Veeder Vineyards Cab that I haven't liked. They make good stuff.
