East Coast Visit - Scheduling, Crash Space? 
5/10/11 11:50
asleep at mal 9/09
So, we're leaving Tuesday night or Wednesday morning to drive across the country for 3 weeks. And we finally have dates sorted with the various family members so here's our rough itinerary.

We'll be at a wedding next weekend with Dad & family, but Monday night 5/16 to Saturday night 5/21 we hope to be in the DC area. Then some time with Mom 5/22 to 5/26, take care of a few things left on the east coast on 5/27, hit bar-con at Balticon 5/28 to see a few more of you, then leave Sunday the 29th to head back here.

Saturday 5/21 we will be at Electroshock in Baltimore (we slept through it last time due to jet lag; no chance of that this time). Any of the days from 5/16 to 5/21 are open at the moment; food, crash space, hanging out, activity suggestions are welcome. Hit me up here, by phone, or email and we'll work out scheduling (my phone number is the same as it was when I lived in MD).

As far as crash space, since we're driving we'll have plenty of room, and plan on bringing the air mattress & bedding, towels, etc. Basically we need a quiet (and preferable dark or darkenable space) to put the air mattress. And as we're not on a real schedule, plus I'm usually asleep til 11 or noon anyway, we shouldn't be fighting for morning bath time or anything. In exchange for crash space I promise at least one good meal of your choice (within reason) either cooked by me, or out at your favorite place. We don't mind spending a night or two here then going to stay with someone else either, so the whole stretch isn't necessary by one person/household. And we can crash at my Mom's if necessary, but that's a two hour drive from DC, and I'd rather be closer to all of my friends so we can see you.

That's it for now. I hope to see loads of you next week, sorry this is posted/changed so last minute, Dad just finalized dates/days for when he wants us there. But he's stressed about Courtney's wedding (and I'm sure stepmom is giving him nightmares atm) so I understand.

You're welcome to stay at my place, as there is plenty of room. Just send me an e-mail. I'm in the NoVA area, if that's convenient for you. {HUGS}

Thanks - I sent you an email.

I would offer up our spare room, but we haven't replaced the blinds yet so the room doesn't get completely dark.

Also, Dan and I have other obligations on the 21st, but it would be nice to try to coordinate dinner with you on another day!

No worries; feistydiva has offered us a room. We'll try to sort out something one night in MD though.

i don't have much space to offer, but i would love to see you, and i'd love for you to meet my beasts! i think you'd appreciate them. if you are in the alexandria area during your DC visiting, please consider dropping in :)

Crash space is covered, will call when we're in the area to try to figure out a time; I'd like to meet the slithery kids and furry kid too.

Oooh, I really hope we can catch up!

If you need to crash here for a day or two I'm sure my housemates can deal with it however I'm not sure about how dark it will be. My room has a small balcony space that's been converted into a mini-office room but I don't think your air mattress will fit in it but otherwise I'm sure it would fit downstairs in our sunroom but we'd have to find a way to throw up some sheets over the windows so you can get some dark if you're going to sleep during the day.

Regardless, I'd be happy to help out if I could. I live in DC proper, in Columbia Heights, and would love to see you guys even if you're not crashing with me. <3 <3 <3

And if you're in DC on Fri. 5/20, Front Line Assembly is playing if you are interested:

We've now got crash space with feistydiva, so that's covered. Will definitely try to grab food or something with you while we're there, FLA is a maybe depending on $ and other stuffs. And if you want to check out electroshock Saturday, there may be folks from DC going to arrange a ride with.
5/11/11 0:51 (UTC)
Ok, cool. If anything falls though just let me know and I'll be happy to cover any slack that you may or may not need.

Also, I would love to come to Electroshock if I could snag a ride with someone you might know. I've never been and would love to check it out.

And please keep me updated on any other DC-type events you might be doing. I'll be working in Chinatown M-F usually until around 5:30ish or so but if something fantastic is happening (or you just want an extra person to bum around with) I'm sure I can swing a day off from work easily enough.

I have space, but it's small and gets light when it is light out (paper shades). However, it's in very-north Arlington near metro.

Actually feistydiva has offered her family room, which is perfect. That said, coffee or foods with you would be most awesome.

Hells yeah! Funny we're trading visits :)

I owe you the Emails..but I may be too late. :) Looks like you have crash space handled.

I'll be away the early part of next week, going up to NJ to meet my nephew. I'd love to see you & Ty, though. Might do Electroshock, though back woe would keep me from dressin' up & gettin' down. Plz. keep me posted if you have time for dinner/chat, or if there's a group dinner..& definitely interested in checking out BaltiCon to see you & my other West Coast darlings.
