Thanks Cameron.  I doubt anything will be recovered and I'm filing the insurance claim tomorrow...after I have a little chat with the property manager about moving to another community closer to work.

This has not been a good day.


No kidding.  This has not been a good day for you.  Ironically it's National Night Out Against Crime.  Start looking at Craigslist for the stack of BDs.  I'll start rebuilding your collection with 3 concert Blu-rays and a copy of Avatar courtesy of Panasonic.

Adam, that is truly generous.  I don't know quite what else to say except thank you.

Don't thank me, thank Panasonic /img/vbsmilies/htf/smile.gif.  Can you wait until Sept 11th to see Avatar again, or do you need it before that?

Before I watch anything (DVD or BD), I need to get a new player.  That's going to happen in a few weeks when I (a) get paid again and (b) return from Michigan.  Short version: 9/11 is absolutely fine.  I have the date circled on my calendar and I'm looking forward to my first HTF meet up.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/smile.gif

Sounds good.  I'll post the official start time the week prior and PM my address to anyone who is planning on attending.

Colin, that is also very generous.  I really, truly appreciate it.  Ironically, the dope who took my stuff didn't grab any box set or the out of print, high priced DVD's.  They left, among others, the Christmas Story and Planet of the Apes gift sets sitting on my bookshelves.


Outside of one person (maybe two, I'm not sure), Washington has been a very pleasant experience so far.  Even when I got back to work today, several people asked if I would need help moving this weekend...and this is just my third week there.

I have a few other sayings too, Adam...most of which revolve around the way people drive around here.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/smile.gif

Don't mind this East Coaster eaves-dropping on your planning...


I am really sorry to hear of your troubles, too, Jason.  I sure hope things start going your way.

I bet you guys will have a great time!  /img/vbsmilies/htf/thumbsup.gif

Thanks Mike.  I'm hoping things start going my way, too.  Didn't look good when I was moving and it decided to rain all afternoon yesterday!

Apparently, the only time any appreciable rain has fallen in this fair area of the country is on a random Saturday in August when I am moving.  Otherwise, it doesn't.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/tongue.gif

So far we have:

Me

Jason

Kevin

Cameron

Colin

 

I've got room for a few more so if anyone else is interested speak up!


Just to confirm it for September 11th.  How about starting in the afternoon sometime between 2 and 4 PM based on what works for you guys?  We can go until whenever.  I can come up with something for dinner.  We can do a single, double or even triple feature or just hang out for a bit too.  Please confirm attendance and an approx start time that works best for you.

RSVPing for one, Adam.  Aside from my weekly excursion to AMC in the AM, I have the whole day free.  I'm planning on making some easy to eat snacks like shortbread and whatever else I stumble across.  So let me know if you end up needing help getting anything ready and all that jazz prior considering how close we are to one another.
