Allow me to apologize for my recent absence. I've been a bit under the weather as of late. But, I digress. My darling and I were conversing, and he came up with what I believe is a brilliant idea: a type-in on the Queen Mary. In my mind, the only thing that could make this better is if it is in October sometime and we all go in costume.
I think this would be riotously fun and am willing to do the legwork on ticket pricing and setting up a date if enough of you are interested. Please either comment on the post or email me here and let me know. Also, if you have any druthers as to a date and time, please let me know now before I contact the staff of the Queen Mary to set this up.
Let's get a group together! It's going to be so much fun!

Great idea if I were in the neighborhood.
Well, hurricane season in your neck of the woods would be a good excuse to visit, haha.Delete
I know there isn't many of us on the left coast, but maybe there's enough to make it a worthwhile endeavor! I certainly hope so.
I hope it works out, it sounds really fun.ReplyDelete
Thank you Richard! I do, too; although we'll probably try to go do it even if no one opts in, it's still more fun to have a bunch of people together instead of just two. ;-)Delete

Great blog! The Queen Mary I was referring to was that fine ship's predecessor, and it's docked in Long Beach CA as a floating hotel, restaurant and spooky tourist attraction. It is a lovely old boat.Delete
I haven't heard of a "next" trip down there yet. It sounds cool though. I hope you can make it happen.ReplyDelete
Thanks. I hope so, too! Please let me know if you can make it; we'd love to have you there!Delete
Anna - count me in! (sorry i havent responded to your email) - my iPhone email has been on the fritz! stupid phone!ReplyDelete
Great! It's all right; I completely understand. Sorry it took me so long to respond to your comment; I was having computer problems myself.Delete
I apologize that it's taken me so long to respond to the comments! I've had issues with the ol' Laptopasaurus to the point I broke down and replaced it. I will now respond to each comment individually as I usually do.ReplyDelete
That would be fantastic - the nearest I've com to such a thing is this.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing that! That is really fantastic, and with such a lovely typewriter to boot!Delete
