It's ten-thirty my time and not one question has been posted yet today! Where is everyone? Have I forgotten a big event we were all supposed to go to? Okay, that's all I wanted to ask.
I think we finally have a VT crisis. Just got my first 2 ratings of last week. But I can assure you, it will be a swell party at the Philippines. PJ
So, everyone is in the Philippines today? That explains it. Too bad it's too far for me to go. Thanks PJ! Now I don't feel so lonely.
I'm here at the moment. If I see nothing happens here I have a look at my Facebook page.
I think I found the answer to where everyone is: cache.virtualtourist.com/6/4... PJ
Linda, I am surprised that you did not know about the big free party going on at VT headquarters at this very moment. VT sprung for everybody's airfare. We are having a great time here.
I am at work - Obviously I didnt get the invite either.
But party or no party - hasn't the traffic been rather slow on the Travel forum for some weeks now ?
NFL football division playoffs, or just a lazy SUNDAY cheers tommy x
Just counted new posts on the Travel forum - omitting duplicate posts - between 01.16 GMT and 22.26 GMT = 48 posts . Not so bad, but I remember a time when the forum seemed to be very much busier.
I think our lives are getting busier....I try to find time to write about my travels and I been home for two weeks now. cheers tommy x
woooo hoooo.........I'm at the VT headquarters with Drew!!! Wow....really appreciate the free airfare that VT gave us. And the Ritz Carlton isn't so bad either. First annual freebie party....sure look forward to next year's. Linda, sorry you did not get the invite. :-( lol
Linda, you are sssssoooo right. Your's is the ONLY post all day. What gives???????
Just received a nice video of VTers jumping the Philippines from Hansi :) hahaha - we should all be there and having fun, haha "Jumping for Norman at Astoria Restaurant 1" - Boracay Island Video by Waalewiener
I was replacing an overhead light in a closet, desperate to avoid electrocuting myself because the Official Spousal Unit was never let me hear the end of it if I killed myself that way ;-)...and then had to elfa(tm) shelf the closet...all part of a project that started several weeks ago when two guys came in and drilled 2 holes in my slab foundation to replace 20 feet of dead drain line...argh! And to think that VT was offering to fly me 1st class to HQ and put me up in a football-stadium sized suite at the Queen Mary in Long Beach...gosh...why did I think that replacing a closet would be more fun???? Bill
We are a whole bunch of people in the Philippines. Had a real good party last night with a cool band that for a while had vt member planxty as the lead guitarist and lead singer.
Wow! Between the party in the Philippines and the VT HQ in California, this is a moving crowd! And the flight and accomodations keep getting better with each post. Thanks Bill. That closet sounds boring ....you're right.
As best as I can tell, most everyone in my area is stuck in traffic somewhere near downtown Vancouver, Washington (NOT the one in Canada). I'm not sure just what the attraction is as there is even less interesting stuff in Vancouver, Washington than there is here in Portland, Oregon. However, for whatever reason, everyone seems to have suddenly decided that is where they want to go. Any chance we could offer half of them free air fare to VT headquarter too? It would sure make getting across the river easier. Besides, no one would notice their addition to Los Angeles traffic.
Sorry...I was watching House all day with the kids
Sorry, I've been busy working during the day and unpacking boxes in our new house in the evenings :-( Next week we're having our huuuuuge garden done, with patio, etc..... VT party at mine, y'all!!! ;-)
I am still sitting in bed, drinking tea and checking my email, trying to figure out what to do today. It's cold out for Florida, so no beach
I have been here...typing my little fat fingers off...I wonder how many calories you burn typing...do my fingers look thinner to you? *holds out hands*
Oh, MUCH thinner. I think you can go down a glove size.
PJ, that kid looks pretty content on only half a bottle of? Of beer? Thanks Drew, no one told me about the big party! Somehow, I always seem to be out of the loop. I know everyone had a wonderful time at VT HQ! Well Jo, at least I'm left out in good company.
Barbar, the Travel Forum might be slow but Miscellaneous Forum came to a skidding halt this Sunday. Tommy you might be right about the US VT Members, but what about everyone else? Surely, the NFL wouldn't enthrall the rest of the world? At 10:30 am my time they wouldn't all still be in bed. Kathy, I'm delighted that you and Drew have been given the chance to enjoy the generosity of VT Staff and the fun they offer at their parties! I wouldn't fly there in any case, for me it would be less hastle to just drive up. Sorry I missed you guys and gals!!!
VT meetings always end with a beer trail ..... cache.virtualtourist.com/6/5... PJ
Thanks for the link Norman, but my computer doesn't do videos at all. I'll just imagine the jump in Krakow I saw and picture it in the Astoria Restaurant 1. Do you think that would work? Bill, it just goes to show that you are an accommodating husband, so don't feel too bad. Just keep in mind, VT won't keep you warm every night. :-) BTW, I must have missed the "football-stadium sized suite at the Queen Mary in Long Beach." As I remember it, the rooms were smallish. minni M The Golden Globes didn't air until much later, but maybe everyone was organizing their G.G. parties? Thanks for the report Claus! Norman showed us your "jump" for him so all of you are accounted for. Glenn, what a great recruiting idea for VT!! I'll agree with it if everyone who is given airfare promises to leave their cars in Washington! Deal? Okay Kristy, you are excused! I can't be on VT when the kids are around either. They want and deserve so much attention! :-) Jessica, you too are accounted for. I don't like packing and moving, but the idea of having a huge garden and patio set up is thrilling! If I can, I'll come to your party next week!
Sophia, you are proving Tommy's theory true for some of us! Kristy, I have to agree with Laverne, your fingers do look slimmer. Good going! I see what you mean PJ! However, I would say this is the actual end of the beer trail for some: The Grand Place: "An Unexpected Sight!" - Mons Nightlife Tip by lmkluque P.S. Sorry I can't isolate the photo like you can.
Linda, I had been wondering the same thing for last several days!! so, for those who missed those other special events, as did I, there is a birthday Luncheon for my husband this Friday/20th at a special location little known to anyone on VT; i.e., I have the only information written up about it here. "El CARDONAL, Definitely OFF the Beaten Path" - El Cardonal by ViajesdelMundo it starts at NOON, get your reservations in and I will buy your lunch!!
Thank you Trish for your generous offer!! I wish I could join you but will have a few little ones with me that day and then have to pick up another at 2:30 pm. Don't think I can make the drive down and back in time. Give your husband my Birthday Wishes!
si, Linda!! not the drive OF COURSE!! but book a flight, eh?? well, do enjoy your kids; we finally got a trip booked in a couple weeks to see our granddaughter again for a few days; she won't even know us, now 2-1/2 and we haven't seen her since just after she was ONE.
