Ugly mug? Speak for yourself, Travis...;-)
Yes, can't be there THIS time (am moving from the Big G and TX this coming May so I'm saving the $1200+ my yearly Christmas trips cost to go towards moving expenses) but plan to make your "4th Annual 2013 Rio Rancho/ABQ OC Get-Together Extravaganza" -- and the 2014 5th Annual Extravaganza as well -- since by then I should be living in Castle Rock, CO, then and will drive down (only 420 miles) to meet with you all those 2 Decembers. And I'll have an AWD car then so any snow storms won't be an issue getting from CR to RR/ABQ -- like I had trying to get from ELP to ABQ LAST year when that sudden storm struck the area and I-25 was closed from Las Cruces to ABQ for a good while -- and I was in El Paso trying to get OUT! :-(
Anyway, glad to see you FINALLY got the 2012 notice up...perhaps if you'd stop eating so much pie @ Village Inn, have 2 triple-shots of espresso like I do every morning, you'd be a bit less lethargic and get stuff done in a more timely fashion -- yes? ;-)
Have a good time, all -- at least the OTHER "Founding Member" (Damien) of this particular RR/ABQ Annual "Extravaganza" event -- meaning THE OC event of the year (!) -- will be there...although this year he has to drive a full 6 MILES (from Los Lunas), then further to Rio Rancho to make it, so give him some extra time (hours, if not days) to make that 'grueling' drive as he's coming from out-of-town! ;-)
And Merry Christmas to everyone!
P.S. Why does Flying Star NOT (from what I saw) sell Gift Cards online? I guess they are available ONLY in-person at stores?
