She knows you all are the reason that I went from Cole Haan to Alden and C&J. She likes the way I dress now but there is a substantial difference in my clothing budget pre and post forum.

I look at it as a matter of corrected priorities. Thanks all.

My wife thinks that there should be a support group for all the significant others during this event. They'd either all visit a financial planner or a nail salon.

Just show up. If you get any flak (which you won't), let me know. The host owes me a favor.

Let me just state for the record that anybody who's coming to this from another city is a total effing dork. From another state, the word for you hasn't been invented yet.

That said, I look forward to meeting you!

So does the fact that I am a few blocks away and will not be going make me incredibly cool?

No, that counts as trying too hard. Besides, the fact that you stay away is proof that you know your sleeve pitch sucks and you don't want to ruin your carefully cultivated -- but phony -- Internet reputation by displaying that to those in the know.
