[Groop] Calgary Anyone?

Yes sir, Gary, I'll be going!

I actually live in Calgary and, frankly, I'm still a bit in shock at
the fact that both Sergio and Mark are coming here, haha. Somebody
pinch me! No wait -- don't!!!

I managed to meet each of them (along with Stan, Tom and you too, Gary)
for a few seconds at the 2007 San Diego Con, and even though the
encounters were brief, they were eye-opening. At the time, I was just
entering art school with aspirations of making comics for a living
myself and so meeting the guys who had created the comic I grew up on
made all those dreams seem...just a little bit more possible, heh heh.
I'm absolutely thrilled that they're coming here. 

Incidentally - if any Groopie was thinking of coming to Calgary, but
doesn't have a place to stay, you'd be welcome to stay at my place
during the con (for free, obviously). I live in a house with 4 other
people in their early/mid-20's, so the place is a little cramped and
messy, but if you're okay with it, I'm okay with it, haha. Just send me
an e-mail and we'll figure things out.

Talk to you in a bit!

OK, I did not intend to say “I am only 750 miles away from where
I live.”  I was trying to
say that Calgary is only 750 miles away from where I live, but I got interrupted
mid sentence and, well, it came out all wrong.


Jeez!  Maybe it was a Freudian
slip.  Maybe I wish I was 750 miles away, cuz then I wouldn’t be
here at work. Actually, I wish I was in New
  Orleans with the Long Suffering Mrs. G, my daughter,
and one of my sons.

PS  Actually, in some respects I’m
a lot further away than a mere 750 miles.  I’m way, way far away…..

Hi Folks!  


I’ve got a few minutes in between tax meetings and
writing tax papers (oh, joy) so I thought I’d send out another completely
pointless message.  


Are any Canadian Groopies going to make it to Calgary to see Sergio
& Mark in April?  I know I’ve sent some stuff up there in the
past.  I checked and according Mapquest, I am only 750 miles away from
where I live.  I am also only 750 miles away from San Francisco and WonderCon.  


And yet, despite there piddling distances, I didn’t go
to WonderCon and won’t be going to Calgary. 
What is the matter with me?  I must be getting old….


Take care all, 


Gary G.  


(See, I told you it was pointless.)
