Hey, NightTrain! Should we start up the DU fundraiser for our meeting now?
You know as well as I do that if we aren't able to meet in person soon we're both going to explode, especially since we had to cancel our March weekend meeting after finding out we were BOTH losing our jobs.

Other DUers have suggested starting a DU fundraiser so we can finally meet and, given that we both have very shaky economic situations right now, I think it's time to consider it. After all, DUers (most of them, anyway!) love romance, especially ones that start right here on good 'ol DU! Besides, a lot of them might donate just to shut us both the hell up, lol! :evilgrin:

BTW, GREAT show tonight, hon, maybe one of these Saturdays I'll actually be able to sit in the studio with you! :loveya: :loveya: :loveya:

2. LOL, thanks!
Not sure if we'd need plane tickets; I'm in Ohio and he's in Connecticut. We'd planned to meet the weekend of March 19 in PA, halfway between our states but fate in the form of double job losses intervened, SIGH! :( :grr: :mad:

I was thinking weeks ago that someone ought to start a fund for you guys. That would be really sweet. We just paid a bunch o taxes, but I think we could kick in a few bucks in the name of love. :toast:

just need to know where to send them

7. Finally! A chance to reply.
Edited on Sat Apr-24-04 10:40 PM by NightTrain
Christ, what a busy-ass night at WHUS! Not only do I have a trainee in the studio with me this week, but the goddamned phone has been ringing off the hook. Factor in that most of the songs I play are three minutes or shorter, and I'm a busy little bee tonight.

Anyway, if our fellow DUers are serious about taking up a collection so that Lisa and I can finally meet.... Well, first of all, my sincerest thanks! Y'all are the greatest! :* Second, Lisa and I will have to discuss the logistics of how you can get your donations to us.

Lisa, you gonna be home on Sunday? If so, let me know a good time to ring you up.

8. Well, hi there honey,
I was wondering where you were, lol! Yes, aren't our fellow DUers just the greatest group of people in the entire world?

I'm taking Chris to a local indoor amusement park tomorrow since his birthday is on Sunday, so the best time to call would probably be around ten p.m. or so. We can figure out the logistics and all that other kind of fun stuff, maybe we'll even get to meet before the year is out, WOOO-HOOO!!!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

16. LOL!
I'm afraid that wouldn't be quite the same as actually meeting in person. Of course, we always have a good time whenever we talk on the phone (and a hard time getting off the phone, as well).

14. You guys should be able to pull this off, with a little help :)
I don't know what you drive, but mapquest says 8.5 hours, 556 miles. Assuming you get 25 MPG, that's about 45 total gallons roundtrip... even if you're assuming you have to pay $2/gal, that's $90 for gas. I betcha you'd get that in a day from DU! :bounce:

15. That sounds about right for gas,
then there's the hotel room as well. Plus all the other little odds and ends that go along with a weekend away from home!
