I'm an idiot and can't attend...

When I saw the date I thought to myself, "I'm traveling that day! I can make it!" I am traveling that day...but to Durham. Booth is another time. Gee, I feel smart.

Have fun everybody!

I should be there around 6.. .i'm sure I'll be able to navigate myself there in time.

Not sure how we'll all recognize each other.. maybe every should wear a "I spent months applying to b-school and all I got was this lousy t-shirt" tshirt, so I know who to approach.

I should be easy to recognize.... I'll be the only guy in the bar without a jacket...cuz the dumass californian in me forgot my jacket in San Diego!!

see y'all tomorrow!

No problem...

You will see a guy who will be speaking loudly, trying to impress the girls, flashing his BMW X5 key etc.

That's Rhyme :wink:

HAHAHA.

Yea, let me rephrase for you.

You will see a guy who will be speaking loudly (ok i do), who is covered in baby drool, looks exhausted from having a kid, is largely overweight, flashing his one-step-away-from-a-minivan key.

It was cool meeting you guys, grab a drink, and talk about random stuff. I'll definitely have to check out Ski Mom and Jersey Shore. Now I have motivation to start prepping for my Booth interview! My email is gkumar [period] gmail [period] com. Keep in touch guys.

You've never seen Jersey Shore?!?! You are missing out my friend. Be sure to check on YouTube for the SnookiePunch. :P

Sorry I had to duck out early. Blame Ross. Let's do this again!

yes indeedy.

too bad you had to leave early zippy, we had a pretty great time with the rest of the crew.

got to hand out with quantjock, gkumar, robert_(redford?), rhyme, and con_mis_dos_banos (or something like that :P)

it was a pretty good time really, both at Fado and the Wit... which had nothing to do with what it sounded like, especially since we got in without a test ;)

and for those wondering,, yes.. Rhyme is that larger than life guy.. he came in on a dragon, smoked some fire and left us in a daze of sheer awe.. yep. he that good :)

and i would love to post our bill from the evening, but for the record, the group had 13 Stellas'.. and rhyme single handedly was reponsible for 11 of them..

yep.. 11!!!

It was great to meet you guys last night! Nice to talk to some people who understand what I've been going through the past few months. Now I just have to figure out how to change the manos to banos... (Check out my sweet new avatar!)

Zippy, sorry I just missed you! It would have been nice to spread a little more Ross (and female!) love in the Booth crowd. :P Good luck in the interview!

Keep in touch, kids.

Sorry, its taken me this long to get back to this thread, I was always surfing on my cell phone and finally got a chance to sit down on a computer.

It was a great time hanging out with our fine fellow gmatclubbers.....and of course, we had an audience with The Rhyme :P.

Attached are a couple of pics... just for unplugged.. we missed you at the meetup. :) As you can see from the pics (and take my word for it!), they all represented !!!!

Thank you very much deadlee.

We can make a bigger dent when we all meet up( probably at quantjock's party in Carribean).

Though I did not attend, I was with you guys......see.

BTW, what is 'pub quiz' and 'heineken cup' ? I'm very much interested in attending these. Probably, I can cover my beer costs by having a regular presence there on Mondays
