I think that I will use this as a challenge. My goal will be to get in good enough shape to get to the top if you would care to join me. Hell, it's 7 months away, I may even use this as a reason to stop smoking!



I'd be happy to give you a shot at it. I wish to success if you try to quit smoking.

Cool idea, I'd be interested in going. It'll all depend on how the Wedding stuff shakes out.

Shameless bump.

Was just thinking, maybe it would be appropriate for WOVcon to have a theme, to make its members easy to identify. If I knew definitive numbers I might even go so far as to have souvenir T-Shirts printed up, but failing that, how about tasteless shirts? The Louder the shirt the better.

Although I am open to other suggestions. Because I have some scarily bad shirts.

Once I saw a guy at a blackjack table in the California casino downtown. His T-shirt simply said, "I suck at math."

(somewhat shameless bump)

It's looking like my January trip to Vegas (CES) isn't going to come together as I'd hoped. So WOVcon will be my next trip to Sin City. I just finished booking my flights and hotel (6/12-6/17), so I'm locked in.

(less shameless bump)
Good to hear RDW. Well not about the CES trip going down the toilet, but to having another WOVCon attendee.

Well, time again to bump this up to see if there is any new interest.

but to pass the time....

There is a factory in Eastern Wisconsin in which they make the Tickle Me Elmo toys. In case you didn't know, the toy laughs when you tickle it under the arms. Well, Lena is hired at The Tickle Me Elmo factory and she reports for her first day promptly at 8:00 AM.

The next day at 8:45 AM there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door. The Foreman throws open the door and begins to rant about the new employee. He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up, putting the entire production line behind schedule.

The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself, so the two men march down to the factory floor. When they get there the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me Elmo's all over the factory floor and they're really beginning to pile up. At the end of the line stands Lena surrounded by mountains of Tickle Me Elmo's.

She has a roll of plush red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles. The 2 men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it around two marbles and begins to carefully sew the little package between Elmo's legs.

The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter. After several minutes of hysterics he pulls himself together and approaches Lena. "I'm sorry," he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face, "but I think you misunderstood the instructions I gave you yesterday..."

"Your job was to give Elmo two test tickles."

That was so bad that it was good. I give that one three out of four groans.

Thanks for the joke. Keep 'em coming with the thumbtacks.
