And talking about Christine, who remembers mac_girl (sp.?)?

- T.I.


P.S. I bet Leonis does
post #42 of 98
Oooh, tough choice. It probably have to be pscates. He's usually got something interesting to say and he seems like the kind of guy you could have a few beers with.
...oh, and Roger Ramjet too, for being kind enough to include me in his list
:cool:

There will be venison, boars' heids wi' oranges, whole oxes turning on spits, trout, salmon, neeps, whisky, pheasant, jousting, pipers, clan chiefs, cabers, kilts, castles, claymores, whirligigs, whigmaleeries, monsters, legendary beasts and prophetic visions; until the stanes themsel's start bouncing wi' grooviness.

Just gie it a wee bit time brothers and sisters...

ps. Jamie - nae reason we couldnae meet up sometime in the new year if ye wish. Could maybe get Mr To Ti frae St Andrew's Uni (whose real identity I am sworn tae keep secret, but he's seein' his granny aboot finalising the details o' my title even as we speak) tae come alang too. Plus The Bob frae Edinburgh if he's still aroond. Bonnie Ayr (if it's no' raining), St Andrews or onywhere in between.</strong><hr></blockquote>

Mac, it's just like old times! Do the words 'Dumfries and Galloway' bring any images to mind? I spent all of September and half of October working there...

Mr Meanie! I am delighted tae have the chance tae converse wi' ye again. I trust all is well wi' you.

I am weel acquainted wi' Dumfries & Galloway. In fact I am due tae spend a few days doon near Lockerbie soon, on a friend's farm. I hope ye had a pleasant wee interlude up here. I shall surely reserve a special place at the heid o' the table for ye (between the comely Scottish Maidens and Ochills Ogre) come the Grand Scottish Isles AppleIsider Feast o' Friendship and Unity.

I may have forgotten tae specify in my previous allusion tae this forthcoming (sometime) event, that lang red hair and huge ginger beards will be mandatory.

Jamie! I'm no' on MSN or any o' these contraptions, but we can maybe arrange something by that email thing in the new year.

That's now three or four people who have chosen me.

I don't get it.

:confused:

But seriously, I'm flattered. I don't see it.

post #46 of 98
And yes...I'm definitely the kinda guy you can kick back and have a few beers with. And some laughs, hopefully.

Anyone ever finds themselves in San Diego and wants to grab lunch and a beer or three, don't hesitate to let me know.

Give you the nickel tour also.

My puppy is flattered that she has so many fans

I've wanted to meet pscates for a while now. Not sure why, he just seems like a cool dude.

I'd like to meet groverat just so I can kick his ass and take his girlfriend.

Mac O'...sorry...SIR Mac O' the Isles, you have an open door invitation to stay with me for as long as you want when you come state side. But you have to promise me that you'll string me some long scottish yarns while you're here. I'm sure I could listen to that accent all day!

Kate? Stop by, I'm sure my wife would have no problem with that

Actually, now that I think about it, I'd like to meet a whole bunch of you. So whatdya say? How about 5ish on Saturday, my place?

SIR Mac O':
I have a newfound respect for the Scots. I now co-produce a show with a fine young Scottish lady and we have a blast! You all are very cool, expecially with words like BOLLOX!

Everyone else:
I can sort of see why no one would like to meet me. I'm not very interesting, really. You'd love the Kansas City area, though. We have...um, the Chiefs -- well, no, they suck now. How about.....well, we're the world headquarters for Applebee's! And, um.....well, I guess all we have is great barbecue!

But seriously, KC is cool. I've heard many times that we're a lot less uptight around here than the rest of the country is. Come on through sometime, if you get the chance.

<img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" /> I think I need to work on my Public Relations skills. Probably everyone thinks I'm some old grumpy guy with a grudge (since I rag on the media, politicians, and others so much). I'm just opinionated though. Not a mean-spirited guy at all. Not even when I play hockey, though I can be if I have to.

Anyway, if I could set it up any way I like, I would fly to San Diego, chiil with pscates...maybe down a six pack while watching the aircraft carriers steam out to sea (or something like that)...then I'd fly to Dallas where Groverat and I could take in a Stars-Capitals game (because the Capitals are about the only team I like less than Dallas)...then...I dunno...maybe fly back to Chi-town and go to Da Bears tail-gater with Scott H. Sounds like a good weekend to me (though they might not agree).

There are others I wouldn't mind meeting, but I won't be so obvious as to say "Kate." <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

I'd like to take DocGonzo on a tour of my campus during the heigth of hippie protest season. Once there he could either see the idiots for what they are or join them. Either way it would be fun.

I got it from the first post. Then again look where I'm from.

How come no one has mentioned Junk Yard Dawg yet? Doesn't everyone want to meet him?

Kaboom - I wid be delighted tae come and stay for a wee while should I ever cross the Atlantic. You are most kind. I shall tell ye mare o' my Authentic Scottish Ghosty Stories (a-la Flamingo). How is the wee beagle?

Mr CosmoNut - You too are maist gracious. Scots invented maist things o' course including coolness (especially coolness wi' a wee dash o' celtic grooviness). Now - I mysel' (apart frae being scrunchily cool) am an exceptionally photogenic hielan' laddie (as particpants o' Flamingo and Orange Insider will testify). Can ye no' give me a wee part in one o' your forthcoming productions? Eg: Handsome Scottish stranger who wanders intae the saloon wins the heart o' the leading lady and earns thousands o' those US bucks. Or Scottish starship engineer who wins the heart o' the leading lady captain. Or any other part wi' a leading lady and plenty o' $?

You know...after thinking about it...I'm not sure I'd want to meet me either. For one thing, I don't present myself as a barrel-o-monkies kind of guy, and for another I've never been at the head of the line when it comes to popularity contests.

I have to say though I was waiting for the merciless jab from Groverat after my Dallas Stars comment.

Yet, the tribe has (not) spoken...I am, therefore...navel lint.

post #67 of 98
If I could only meet one person it would probably be Mark.

If I were to meet a group it would consist of Groverat, Anders, Moogs, PScates, Scott H, DocGonzo, Artman (someone to hang with once everyone started bitching about politics), Amorph and Eugene - cause he gets some cool toys. Oh, and MacAddict.

Plus a couple dozen others I didn't mention.

No girls from AI allowed. We'd meet new girls.

Haven't been cruising Apple Outsider so much lately, Leonis, so I missed this one. Thanks for the vote! I expect we might meet some day.

Almost met The Installer and he's the only AI guy I've spoken to on the phone. Very friendly and intelligent guy.

Of course I want to meet Kate. Not just because she's a she, but because she's got an absolutely intriguing personality. She's got that "X" factor that fascinates people.

I'd just love to share a dozen or so Wee Heavies down' the pub with Sir Mac.

And I'll have to give the very cool Mr. Scates a call next time I'm down in SD. You up for a few brew, Paul?

[edit] Oops I guess you already answered that one. I mentioned you before I read your posts. Bask in your popularity, friend. I bet you're thinking "if they only knew..."

I had a friend (and the most beautiful girl I know in Hong Kong) tell me the other day she wanted to "be" me. <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" /> That was a bit weird.

TELL me about it! I'm utterly shocked at the number of people who want to have a beer with a flaming dork such as myself!

post #73 of 98
But I think it's cool as can be and I'm genuinely flattered.
post #74 of 98
Whoa, whoa! I didn't know you were a flaming dork. Sorry, gonna have to bag the beer at the naval shipyard thing. Besides, the government is watching now so we could be mistaken for terrorist types.

Got any good Hooters clubs nearby? Hey, how far of a drive is it from SD to San Jose? We could go check out a Sharks game. I saw them when they were at the United Center a few weeks ago...they lost but they still are a decent team. Owen Nolan is the man!

I'll second this old vote! I've taken quite a long time to think about it and this IS my final answer! Workerbee's shine has been lost, like seeing your girlfriend naked for the first time...just common.

But Kormac still shows just the right amount of ankle and hint of smile to interest one even well into his cloak and dagger 'older' life.
