    If it was going to be at San Marcos (on May Ave.) I might consider attending. Actually, half a country away, so not really … but San Marcos is awesome.

    That’s too far to drive for IRL trolling. I’ll concentrate really hard on making my likeness appear on the pizza, though. I mean, hell, Jesus can do it and he doesn’t even exist.

    Just got an e-mail you will be talking in Tulsa in a month. Great. Hope to hear you speak there.

    I live in Bangkok, Thailand. I think I am either 13 or 14 time zones ahead of you. That means I have to start drinking at 8 or 9 AM to say “Cheers”.

    Wish I could be there in person.

  14. #14 Alf
    August 29, 2008

    The time imprint says I’m just 13 hours ahead of you. Oh well, a Bloody Mary at 8 AM isn’t too bad. I’ve done worse.

    I’ve been to Oklahoma, it’s through a bunch of corn right?

  16. #16 Blaidd Drwg

    Tatarize, yeah, that’s right, just don’t forget to set your watch back while you’re there. 1954 ought to be about right.

    I used to live in Pittsburg KS, not too far from Oklahoma. This almost makes me wish I were still there. ERV, I’ll be hoisting a jar with you in spirit from Atlanta.

  17. #17 Rich

    I will come if you wear *that* dress, head atheist!

    You just drive until the normal, wholesome scenery of the United States gives way into the kind of blighted ruin that HP Lovecraft would use as a backdrop for one of his stories. Then you wander around until a Quiverfull cultist and her dozen offspring see you and proclaim, “Y’ain’t from around here, are ya?”

    Then you’ll know you’re in Oklahoma.

    Sounds like fun! I could drop down from Stillwater. Email sent. 🙂

    Pizza + beer + ERV = WIN!!

    Actually, any of those three individually would constitute a win, put the three of them together and it makes me almost believe in Dog.

    And speaking of whom, will Arnie be there, too? That would make it the Win to end all Wins!

    Hi all,

    Oklahoma is a mixture of Great Plains and some slightly rugged terrain. I know of it primarily from its fossils; one can get some well-preserved Phacops logani trilobites from the Arbuckle Mountains.

    Can you move your party 798 miles NE?

    I think I can persued The One and The Only Richardthughes to show up.

  25. #25 Leigh Shryock

    I’m *almost* close enough to go there… tempted… grr.

    Could you, like, move it to Arkansas?

    Anyone interested in doing one in the Washington, DC area? We live in Clifton VA and might be interested in hosting a paralell party here.

    man, all this okie bashing sort of hurts. like th dust bowl allover again. Clearly, you guys weren’t aware of the Great Salt Plains, one of the largest inland coastal bird migration spots in the country, nor some of the oldest mountains on the continent, or the fact we have more ecoregions than all other states, (though we tie with a few). And don’t even get me started on tall grass prairies… so where do you go to school, OU or OSU? I just graduated from OSU w/ a degree in forest ecosystem sciences.

    Haley Shae, OSWho?

    My job sends me for training periodically to Norman, OK but unfortunately I’m not scheduled for anything around that time. Shucks, sounds like it would be fun. Hope y’all have a good time.

    WTF?! You goof, the 16th is a Tuesday! How the heck are those of us with jobs supposed to join the fray? No good party ends the same day it starts, and I don’t think my boss is going to accept “ERV kept me away” as an excuse.

    Get yer booty down here to Dallas and plan a bash, and you can count me in for beer money.

  32. #32 dhough

    I will be there and will try to bring my wife and 19-year-old daughter, too. I am looking forward to meeting you.

    Is the party still happening? Will Arnie be okay? I sent an RSVP. Any more details coming?
