Will You Be There?

Aren't in this picture?

Weren't there last time?

You missed out, my friend.

Never fear, I'm coming again and hoping some of my new friends will want to dine with me for either a second or first time.

You may have noticed the poll on my sidebar that's been there for a few weeks asking if you would like to have dinner again.

Since there are 41 votes and I voted twice(I think) that makes 39 voters.

I'm pretty surprised only 4 people thought I was weird. I wonder what these people's version of "normal" is? It's really a good thing I don't blog about every mood swing I have.. that number would go right on up.

14 people say, Yes! I would LOVE to have dinner with you! But only 7 of those say they can make it the weekend of the 21st, which is the weekend I will be down. Since I'm two of those votes, that makes 5 people. The more the merrier!

6 people said they weren't there last time, but they want to be this time. Did those same 6 people vote for the weekend? Man. I should have only made it possible to click one bubble.

Please leave a comment letting me know if your coming or not. Or if you think you can come. I had so much fun last time. I think when I come down I'll set aside a night/day/morning for food and those who can make it can come.

For those who live in Antarctica, you stink! You should live closer to the nexus of the universe.

For those of you who need a ride; I'll only go as far as San Diego to pick you up, so sorry Antarctica... you lose again!

For those of you who can't afford the gas, you MUST have voted when the poll first opened and now gas has gone way down. Want to change your vote?

For those of you not willing to make the trip for me (1 person), you must either
a. live in Antarctica
b. only visited my blog once, and that was to sabotage my voting thinger
c. not read my post about self esteem issues and paranoia at night when I'm by myself
d. were one of the 4 (or all 4??) who said I was weird
e. all of the above

We have 3 people who want Dennys (their booths are huge) and 5 who say a nice (meaning more than 8 bucks a plate) restaurant. I'm thinking it might be better if I just pick a place... maybe no poll. But I will take thoughts and discussions and I'm up for suggestions. I'm thinking Sampans in the South Town Mall; they take reservations and Kristina says they are pretty good. Dinner would probably be a little later 7 or 8. I do have to drive 3 1/2 hours. So, let me know what you think!

And for that one anonymous (Mary) person who had yucky chicken at Carinos. I'm sorry, better luck next time. Maybe this time you wont order a nasty mushroom brown saucy monster. :)

One other thing. Wendyburd is having a sweet giveaway for her 100th post. Check it out, it's pretty fantabulous.


Kristina P. said...

If I remember correctly, Sampan also has round tables. But, I don't know how many they seat.

Once we have a definitive plan, I will post about it on my blog.

I will let you know what time I can get off next Friday.

Jillene said...

I am IN!! I have never heard of Sampan's so I guess I need to google it right after this. Can't wait to see you again!!

Life as Ashley said...

Count me in. I will do everything I can to not miss this time. Promise. I won't be moving, so what else could there be?

Try to find a place where we can all sit together. None of this separate tables stuff! :)

Can't wait to formally meet you!

The Boob Nazi said...

GOODWOOD!!!!!!!! Please. GOODWOOD! You can get a pork sandwich for less than 8 dollars! But I'm just throwing that out there.

Brigitte said...

Errrr.... I so want to come but I can't!! :( We are actually headed up to Idaho for Thanksgiving and won't be back till Sunday. I am so bummed! Darn it. Hmmm.... maybe I can convince my hubby to leave early..... we'll see.

Brigitte said...

wait a minute, wait a minute..... I just realized you're talking about the weekend BEFORE thanksgiving, not the day after.

I'M IN! WhoooHooo.

So let's please NOT do Denny's. That's my input. Anywhere but Dennys, and I'm cool. :)

Kristina P. said...

OK, it looks like I can get off at 7 next week.

*MARY* said...

I'm so in! I think the people that own Sampan are in my ward. They brought me dinner after I had Meici and it was pretty good. But Denny's has grandslam breakfasts.

Erin said...

Why, oh WHY do I have to live so far away??? Oh well. Have a wonderful time. I will meet you all someday.

Kristina P. said...

I think I've spent more weekends with Mary during the past 5 weeks, than my friends I've known for years. Lucky me!! :)

Michelle said...

I'm with Erin. I'm sad that I live too far away to join you all. It sounds like such fun and I'm dying to meet you all! One day, one day. :)

Jo said...

Sign me up! I am just glad it isn't this weekend, cause we are going out of town. I will dump my hubby with my youngest and I will be there!

Rychelle said...

alright! i don't live in antartica, so you must be coming to pick me up. (shall i send you my address?!?)


the letter Bee said...

I need to check my schedule. I'll let you know. Sounds fun!

PS: Don't wear flip flops.

hello, my name is amber. said...

I really want to go, but I'll see if my sister in law can watch taylor this time. I'd like to go by MYSELF. ;)

are you staying at my house? because you should! SERIOUSLY!

Wendyburd1 said...

Don't worry, you are NOT normal. Like I say, Normal People Worry Me and alas you do not worry me!LOL!

Aww making me sad I don't live in the stix of Idaho or Utah again!! I voted "can't afford the gas" as that would be a LOT of gas...plus I suck at directions...I don't know street names or highways...I know I go THIS way and take a right before the Target THERE, etc. LOL. Yeah... I am so sad again!! People visit CT, it is beautiful! Haven't you seen Alyson's pics?! New England is GREAT!! Yeah I will keep saying it to myself as you get together and I try not to cry, big pitiful tears!!

Wendyburd1 said...

P.S. Like this background better! Easier to read now!! :)

Whitney R said...

Woohooo! People are coming!

It's official, dinner will be at 7. Probably still Sampans unless someone lets me know about how they spit in their food.

The Boob Nazi said...

They spit in my food once, I swear.... GOODWOOD! Exit 291. It's the best ever. Why does no one back me up on this. I am sad.

Strawberry Shortcake said...

Jealous... wish I could go. Maybe if I sell a kidney I could afford a ticket :( Have fun! :)

Kristina P. said...

Julie, I have no problem with Goodwood, but Whitney mentioned PF Changs, and I though Sampan would be more central, and cheaper.

I'm going to post about it tomorrow, and it will probably have Sampan in it. :)

Mina said...

Aw, man! I need a western Idaho edition.

By the way, nice new look on your blog.

And adorable invites.

Jay @halftime lessons said...

Awwwwww, look at those awesome women!!

post MORE, Whit!! I love seeing what you're up to!


So said...

I just read about this at Kristina's and I would like to be there but my siblings and I are getting together that night to plan our family Christmas party. *sigh*

The Boob Nazi said...

I'm not gonna lie, I keep coming back to your page to see who's coming! I'm very excited for Friday night! Then I can just call people my friends instead of my blog friends haha. People think I'm weird then.
