signal boost: vividcon shopping runs

Quick note for anyone attending VividCon:

[personal profile] amireal posted grocery store run offers for those attending.
Personally, I've always found the notion that the grocery store is within easy walking distance to be faintly amusing *G*. Especially if it's a warm VVC year. So instead of leaving my ability to pick up a few items to the whims of fate, being in the right place at the right time, I figured it'd be worth it to organize one or two runs, pairing up people with cars to people who would like rides.

I think one Thursday and one Friday should cover it. What I need is to gauge interest. Who would be interested in a ride and who would be willing to drive.

If you would like a ride, comment with your preferred day and if your mobility requires extra space in the car.

If you would like to offer the services of your car, please comment with your preferred day and the number of people you can reasonably fit into a car (remember to account for groceries).

My goal is to have a small caravan meet at a designated time and a spot and head out (FOR BOOZE).

So. Who's interested?


There's a thread somewhere that goes into detail about the location of the grocery store, the layout of the area around the hotel, and the sidewalks or lack thereof--I went to find it but I can't find the right thread, so if someone sees it, link me and I'll add it here for context.

Via [personal profile] morgandawn - here and here give a description of the area around the hotel.

Tentatively, I'm going to add if time conflicts combine with any accessibility problems, post there as well to see what can be arranged or to indicate a thread/post should be created for it.

so this is not like, a plan yet

Randomly, and there is no context for this other than an email exchange I just had, some day I am going to fulfill my dream of hosting a party for people who have never managed to hook up with anyone at a con so we can all sit together and ponder this.

It's not that I think we lack social skills other people seem to have. See, I think someone at each con hates us and spreads rumors about us and together, we can find out who that is and make spreadsheets together eliminating all the suspects on our laptops. I will provide the alcohol and no less than three (3) separate templates for our spreadsheet, and I am thinking in multiple colors and with rotating three-dimensional pie chart and like, okay, call me crazy but we could write macros and conditional statements and I just got multiple workbook formulas working really well.

Please bring your laptop, alcoholic beverage of choice, one type of chips, and maybe, DK, a dip of some kind? And a spreadsheet application. I think leverage and castle vids playing in teh background would give the right atmosphere.

One day. *shakes fist* One day.

[Note: cherry chocolate tea should be a schedule three substance. I don't think I've stopped drinking it for the last three days. Also, I see colors. Lots of colors. Everywhere.]

eta: To respond to concerns I feel need to be seriously addressed, you may bring your web-enabled smartphone in lieu of your laptop, which let's face it, might as well be a laptop because God knows my phone is very possibly sentient, for your spreadsheeting needs.
