    9. "I need coffee." (John only)

    8. "May we adopt Manny?"

    7. "Why am I chain smoking?"

    6. "What time is it? What do you mean, 'Why'? Because I'm usually logged into the FoRT at this time!"

    5. "Did we miss the stop?"

    4. "I walked out to look for a restaurant or anything. But nothing!"

    3. "Is everyone here? No? Oh, [person] went to the bathroom first..."

    now Phat, you know one of the most commonly heard things at FORTcon was "Praise Jesus!" but that was overheard from the other convention at our hotel. The SPEGS contingency can TESTIFY that they got to heard the good news morning, noon and night.

    Yes, somehow they got us confused with that other convention and put us on their floor. We got this close --><-- to being saved . (I guess when we were checking in, we didn't look like "those people" who go meet strangers off the internet.)

    I think if you'd bought one of those candy apples, Spegs, your conversion would have been a done deal.

    And yeah, comments on John's height did make up a lot of the conversation. Also frequently heard: "I'm #$%#$ freezing!"

    BTW, the daughter did ask how "those people" were. I told her we all got along so well we were starting a commune in Boise, Idaho.

    De nada, compadre. Tell you what, though: Next year, do one better and come out. I promise you that any reservations you have about showing up (for whatever reason) will disappear in the space of the first five minutes the first time someone you feel you've "known" for so long smiles at you and shakes your hand.

    The funniest part is, you don't know if you're all doing it because it's easier or if it's because you've forgotten each other's names as soon as you learn them.

    Hm. The problem with being asked to "Testify!" is that, too often, this is a "smack talk" tactic in professional wrestling, so if one of their pastors had asked me to "testify," I may have challenged him to a Lumberjack/Loser-Leaves-Town match. You can slip me a roll of quarters to smash him over the head with, though.
