Houston, TX Gathering; early Aprilish

Apokolips-You and I are the same age, but I am definitely not in driving distance of the D and B in Houston. All I can do is make you a card, like we all did in the Valentine Swap. I hope lots of curlies go to your party! [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
Ahh! The red x!!! This is what I was trying to post.
All of you within driving distance of Houston, or those of you with frequent flyer miles, are all invited to my birthday party at Dave & Busters in early April; an actual date will be set in stone very soon. I will be bringing a small crowd of people with me, all of which you've heard of at some point if you pay any attention to my scribblings. You'll get to meet Hannah, Craig, Allyson, Vickie, and more. Those are the only ones I can guarantee, the others are kind of squirrely but approachable. I'll try bribes. Grilled cheese sandwiches work wonders on the likes of these people.

Come out and get drunk with me on my 28th birthday. You just can't pass up a Curly Gathering involving large amounts of alcohol, video games, and more.

And yes, this is being billed as an Official Curly Gathering. I'm pretty sure I can get away with that. [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

Hey PH, wanna carpool?

Silly Tori! If it's clear over on HIS side of Houston, it'll take 4 hours, especially if I drive - I have to keep to the speed limit now, y'know. Too many tickets. [img]images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

But yeah, carpooling sounds great, although you'll have to drive if you're taking hubby. My car only fits two. [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

Yay, this'll be fun! Please don't let it be April 6 and 7th...

Wait...did you say the San Antonio Highland Games? Hm. I learn something new about this town all the time! [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
I'll keep those dates in mind. And I really don't even know where the Dave & Busters is located. I've only been to the one in Dallas. These are all things I need to sort out soon. [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] Any Houston locals wanna tell me whereabouts I can find Dave & Busters?
Did someone say grilled cheese? I'm THERE! [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

Seriously, name the date. Houston's only 4 hours away. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Thanks! The nearly-carved-in-stone date is Saturday, April 13. So far everyone is agreeable.

Doin' the bump! [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
Okay, if we're still doing this, I'll be making the drive alone, but I'm totally willing to do that. Hannah is working all weekend, Craig's leash isn't long enough to reach Houston, Vickie was like, "Well, I'll go if you really want me to..." and Allyson has fallen off our map since she started seeing this guy we haven't even met yet. We don't need them anyway, this is a curly gathering. [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

So, we still in? I'm at a point where I could either have a damn good time with alla y'all or throw in the towel, no hard feelings. It's your call. Who's in?
I'm out due to severe lack o' funds. [img]images/smiles/icon_sad.gif[/img]

Okay, I guess it's safe to say the party is called off. But I do want to get something pulled together during a less hectic time of year.
