Note: The preceding is an example of snark--toothed humor that we on the board direct at each other. It's meant to be light-hearted, but occassionaly people mistake it for actual hostility. I realize that bringing this into the ticket threads, where so many people not used to the board's tone, might add to the confusion. Everyone on this board is welcome at the meet'n'greet.
I'm not afraid of you, theCrypyofishist! (Probably because people on other internet forums I have used are WAY snarkier - or downright mean - than you.) And good thing I'm not, because I got my ticket offer just after midnight (I was at 12:18:16 in the cue) so it looks like I can make it to this meet-and-greet after all (if I can manage to search through eplaya to figure out when and where it is). I guess a bunch of the Sunday/Monday STEP offers just expired and us 12:18ers are getting the sloppy seconds. But hey, we'll take 'em - sloppy or not!

Woke up to the single most exciting email I have ever received - I'm coming home!!!

We received two tickets @ $390. Time to shift the planning into overdrive. Can't wait to see you all in the dust. Original timestamp from server was 12:18:29 - 12:19's get ready!

Well, sort of. From Thousand Oaks in Ventura County. Ventucky is a Ventura-based camp with members also scattered around in Camarillo, Santa Barbara, Ojai, Simi Valley, and even a handful in LA. Do you know any of us?

Thanks, Bounce530. I am brainstorming some kind of STEPchild (Cinderella's ugly STEPsister?) outfit to wear to it, but drawing a blank so far.

Forgive me if this discussion went on long before I joined this forum, but I bet you could figure out what your detailed time stamp is. I thought I was 12:19 because that is what my incoming email said, but went I went to "View Source" (in Hotmail) on my email options, a new page of source code opened up and I could see that the message was sent at 12:18:16. In Yahoo! mail, you can do the same thing with the "View Full Header" option under the little thing that looks like a gear. Haven't figured out how to do it in Gmail yet. Not sure what email program you are using, but it is likely that you can see the full header somehow.

Did you get a STEP Ticket?

Hell yes I did: 12:18.26 checking in, two tickets purchased. Thank you all!!!!

junglesmacks and BBadger for the sarcasm; Savannah for keeping it legal; Arnoldo for showing the love (sorry for your loss); FELIXWOLFRAM for trying to make me have faith in the timestamp; Eric for trying to make me not have faith in the holy timestamp; lucky420 for being happy everyday; and everyone else for making this ridiculous roller coaster manageable and yes lemur, noted on posting elsewhere.

Congrats to everyone so far, if you are waiting for tickets they are coming. Thank you to BMorg for putting more tickets in and everyone that placed their own tickets into STEP. See you at the meet in greet!!!! WOOP WOOP
