Plaid Shorts 2009
will be Saturday, August 15.
This year's Plaid Shorts Meeting
of the Worthless Bastards
will take place in Engelbrecht House
and will be open only to sponsors of portals
in Wizard Academy's landmark tower,
currently under construction.
(Yes, this is extortion, but I'm
a worthless bastard, remember?)
The first 8 portal sponsors to notify
of their intent to attend will be
given a room in Engelbrecht House
for the nights of Friday, Aug 14
and Saturday, Aug. 15.
Other portal sponsors will be
welcome to attend as well,
but they'll need to find
a place to stay.
If you'd like to chat with Tamara
(Tamara knows all,)
she can be reached at 512-295-5700.
You must be wearing plaid shorts when you call,
Tamara will know if you're not.
All attendees of Plaid Shorts meetings
must wear plaid shorts at all times
during the meeting.
Yes, we are that ridiculous.
And lest you come with expectations
that something really cool is going to happen,
visit this instructive page from last week's rabbit hole.
We mostly just sit around and talk about books and movies
and sometimes we pile into cars and drive to the bookstore.
That's about it. It's really just a day of rest.
The highlight of the day will likely be
when we climb up to the stardeck of the tower
after dark and touch the stars and feel the tingle of them.
The good news is that your sponsorship of a portal
also qualifies you to attend the August 18-19 class on
Visual Cues and the 12 Languages of the Mind.
As a matter of fact, that's probably the best page
to view your portal options.
You should go there now.
