Getting together **Fri May 9** at Mo's Irish Pub in Wauwatosa to welcome lizziegrace!!
Working on the time specifics... I imagine somewhere around happy hour.

As you may or may not know, the lovely lizziegrace is considering a move to the greater Milwaukee area. She will be in town on Friday May 9 for an interview and would love to meet all of you fine people. So... please join me in giving her a warm welcome like we here in Wisconsin do best. :bounce:

Here's their website: http://www.mosirishpub.com/wauwatosa/index.html

They are on Hwy 100 & Bluemound - used to be the Ground Round (before they suddenly ceased operations much to the surprise of their employees and customers). Oh, they also tore down the Pizza Hut accross the street to the west to add a convenient parking lot. I digress...

So, who's in? Dolo amber? Hedges? Eyesroll and Hornsomething(the fart putty guy)? Connie? Fudgestripecookays and reprehensor?

6. OMG! What awesome news!!!
I don't know if I'll be able to make it to the meet-up, though. Too much stuff going on in my life right now - it's way too complicated to elaborate.

But hey - you can become a Wisconsinner!!! :bounce: :bounce:

8. REV CHEESEHEAD!!!
Yep, it's looking like I'll become a cheesehead too. ;-)

Do you have a hand bell choir at your church? Do you know any UMCs in Milwaukee that do?

:hug:

I can't wait to meet you when your life allows it. :bounce:

7. Hi lizzigrace. I realize a job interview brings you to this area.
Are you coming from out of state or from a local area? Good luck with your interview...

2. Holy crap! I might be able to go for a bit!
:bounce:

Hornblast (it's weird typing that--that's not his login anywhere else) likely will be retrieving a hopefully fart-putty-less child from her mother....but I will be DONE with exams, DONE with papers, and just working that day (so you guys will get to see me all lawyered up) out in Elm Grove...hmm...

19. the Wisconsin Democratic balance . . .
Well, this must be one of those balance of life things since I am have an Interview tomorrow in southern Illinois (my second actually)for a Chamber of Commerce executive director position. It is between me and one other person but I feel like I have a killer presentation for them so if you get the job in wisconsin and must be getting the job in Illinois in order to restore the Democratic balance here! That's my theory anyway. Seriously, good luck, We have been here almost a year, 7 months of that without work so we are happy to be leaving. The job I am interviewing for is like 5 miles from where we have our home in Southern Illinois and jobs like this don't come along very often down there so I am really hoping it works. Otherwise, we are going anyway as our apartment lease is up in June. But at least I know I am leaving Wisconsin in good hands with this bunch here!

20. good luck with the interview
although it is painful for me to wish someone luck so they can move to illinois....
i always thought that heading a chamber would be a really cool thing to do.
Good luck with that.

28. I think you should bring her, I'd love to meet her since I've heard so many cute stories!
Actually, I was thinking that we really should try to have a BBQ this summer with families and everything if for no other reason than my kids realize I'm not talking to imaginary people online!

29. The Triangle Park is right across the street from our house....
good for that stuff.

If reprehensor gets employed and we can afford it I was hoping to put something together. But we only have one bathroom upstairs. The other one is down in Antarctica. So as long as you don't mind stairs! :D

Everybody who's ANYBODY is moving to Beerbratistan. Take US for instance! <--- says the proud Wisconsinite of 8 months.

I'm sure we can come out for a little while. I have to head to Madison early on Saturday to find dead people, so don't wanna stay out too late past my bedtime.
