    So, I missed POE, sadly. But it looks like I will make it to this one. Will I see any of you there?

    Well, this is the second one I'll ever have been to, and I'm 32 years old. That makes it a 1:16 chance that I'll be at one of these shindigs.

    Now where's Karen? I bet she's gonna rock the house...

    I'm planning on going to the Santa Barbara show or the GABF. Depends on whether I can rent a wheel chair at the GABF.

    I was in Santa Barbara two weeks ago. Hard to justify another trip so soon. POE wiped out my orchid budget for a while anyhow.

    Oh, we can rent you a chair Dale. That is a certainty.

    OK. I'm gonna need a Deluxe model with red crushed velvet upholstery. And a beer holder. 0-60 in 5 seconds would be good, too.

    he either means Jet Assisted Take Off, or Jews Against The Occupation. We could probably arraign both.
