    Sorry guys, I'll have to back out for that day. I'm in a sanctioned BBQ event for that weekend, and if we win, it's on the the finals!!

    Don't move it back on my account...whether or not I can make it on any given date is still a total unknown.

    Exactly.

    For instance...

    WWII? Yeah, that was my fault. Sorry guys. It was an accident.

    Sorry...those were both my fault too.

    One other thing...when you're waiting for a package to come from UPS/Fedex/USPS etc...and it arrives beaten beyond recognition? Yeah...sorry guys...that's my fault too. The packages all come through my house before they get to their destinations. I decide what lives and what gets destroyed.

    So...you might want to get on my good side.;)

    Well at least there's one good thing around here, thats customer service. Without you, everything would be working perfectly and there'd be no need to call anyone for any help/support. Since you're the cause of all the mayhem, at least there'll be others called upon to fix the issue. So don't be too hard on yourself :p

    Whenever we do go on this thing, a few things will be required of you; a lucky rabbit's foot, a 4-leaf clover, horseshoe, and whatever else you can think of. No sharp objects either :)

    lol...Alright. I think I have most of those things laying around somewhere. If you think of anything else I should bring, let me know.

    Exactly...and it's been taking a lot of my time recently. Not that I have any objections to that.

    24th won't work for me. My brothers band is playing at The House in Dekalb on the 23rd...and then on the 24th me and the new lady are going to see The Yonder Mountain String Band at the House of Blue's in Chicago.

    The weekend after that is out for me too...possibly seeing Type O Negative...and definitely seeing Bob Dylan at The Aragon.

    Of course she'll be welcome!! I'll ask my GF if she wants to come along so she's not the only girl. My girl doesn't know beans about HT or stereo rigs, but she knows what sounds good, and I've taken her on demos before.

    I meant more with her work schedule. :p She doesn't work a 9-5 5 days a week like i do, so if she's working, it'll just be me, but if she's not, she'll tag along.

    Mine is like yours.... has no idea what's going on, but can pick out changes and tell me which sounds better. She doesn't CARE much about which sounds better, but she DOES know the differene. :D
