Scheduling Snafus

Alycia aimed carefully at Wednesday. Her father had taught her the price of sloppy aiming, such that she'd actually added a targeting reticle to her mask, even though her father was a (relative) dolt a substantial dimension away and would never know if she actually missed. She'd know. ((Yes.))

Just want to make sure after last week's holiday induced scheduling weirdness, we're back to normal Bat-time is week, correct?
Definitely believe so.
Schedule/reschedule ... So, since tonight is out ... We are free this week Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday (if need be).

Wednesday may be doable. Need to check the calendar and I ain't getting up right now.

Tuesday or Wednesday are okay, I've got stuff Thursday.
So tentatively on Wednesday, if nothing comes up (sorry, Doyce).

An unlikely interruption for me next month, but I wanted to make everyone aware just in case. Starting the 26th and going until the 16th of July, we're going to hosting a friend who is on leave from the military.  It's going to involve a lot of local tourism and probably a weekend road trip at some point.  It's unlikely any of this will keep me from getting a couple hours of free time on Monday nights as normal, but it might.  I'll update as I get more information.

 would it be possible to do would it be possible to do this week's game on Thursday evening? I am solo through the next couple of days and concerned that I'm not going to be paying proper attention to the things that need proper attention paid to them both in the game and out.

 Hi guys.  So I was just reminded that I actually have a previous commitment, as we have tickets for Book of Mormon downtown Thursday.  I'm not sure how I can solve this problem. Friday night might be doable. I could start theoretically later this evening at 8:30 or something. I welcome thoughts.

I'm okay with the punt.
I can't say I'm happy  about the punt, but I can accept it in the face of a "scheduling hell" week. :-P On the other hand, I can say that we went to Book of Mormon  downtown a few weeks back and had a wonderful time, and I expect you will, too. :-)

Small heads up: Looking forward to playing tonight, but I might be running slightly late to the game.  Doubt I will be more than 15-20 minutes late at worst, but don't hold things up on my account.
Well, with all due respect, that's the least  awful thing I thought was going to show up when I saw an update in this thread. :-) We'll keep the home Jasons burning for you.

We'll keep the home Jasons burning for you. "Owowow it's hot turn it off Alycia!" "It's just a low-powered maser, it won't do any permanent harm." "Why are you masering me?!" "..... It's fun." It's all good, take the time you need. We'll just keep cranking out more forum fiction when games don't happen.

Fortunately, the dark session accidentally lines up perfectly with a previous obligation I have on that evening that would have made me miss that game.  Looks like this is working out for everyone.

More scheduling woes.  The week of Aug 27th I will be in Atlanta for work, which looks like is also James' last game before leaving for college.  I'm still going to try and make it (my schedule in Atlanta willing), but we've seen how remote sessions have worked in the past.
NOT a cancellation (or any desire for one), but a warning that the Consortium may be seriously jet lagged Monday night, after 18 days in GMT+2 and +3 living (and a delay that may have us trapped tonight at JFK), we may be running on fumes.  But we WILL be there!

As mentioned before (or after?  or during?) the game last night, I'm going to be out in Atlanta and booked with a vendor for an event when we would be having the game on the 27th.
And on the 27th we'll be en route to California . So I suspect we'll be dark that night, unless Bill needs it for the episode where Leo finally retires ... ;-)
