see you in charlotte?
« on: October 27, 2008, 04:57:46 PM »
while contemplating the chicago contingent to iWPS '08 in charlotte and text messaging karen g, i began wondering to myself,

billy: self?

self: what up?

billy: we know karen g, 6 is 9 and wonder dave are hijacking motorcycles with sidecars to be in charlotte, but who else is planning to come thru and hang/compete?

self: why don't you post a thingy about it on the PSI forum.... maybe some of the other kids will respond.

billy: for real?

self: fo' sho!

:D

Joaquin is crashing at my house today on his way to Massachusettes tonight.  He's on the list of competitors so I'm gonna take him down at the knees when he gets in the driveway.  Nothing like starting the healthy competition early to edge your chances at IWPS.  Sorry Billy, one less poet will be there this year.  I missed my chance to shank you in the living room two weeks ago.  ya slippery fellow!

I'll be there, spectating.  Looking forward to it; even getting into town early to enjoy Charlotte a little before hand.

So flashback two weeks ago.  I'm in Chad's living room and he and I are face to face in the circle.  Mr. Miagi's staring into my soul while Nicole over Chad's shoulder yells, "Yeah!  Get him a body bag!"  Needless to say I survived and will see you all in Charlotte Thursday night con abrazos por todos (with hugs for everyone).

Three hundred and some odd dollars for a plane ticket to Charlotte from Dallas...96 dollars in gasoline there and back in my beautiful Puerto Rican wife's incredibly fuel efficient Honda Civic.  Don't think of it as 15 hours behind the wheel, think of it as 15 CDs I get to listen to.

Number 1: Sea Change by Beck, and who knows what the next 14 will be.

Mad Respeck...See you guys next week.

Joaquin
