    Can we make this party off the hook and enforce people to dress as their main uo character? I like to run around in underpants.

    Um.... no.

    First off if I dressed as my main I'd look somewhat strange. Probably would be too hot... secondly I don't think I could and well he's a he and I'm a she... and finally if I dressed as my "first" character that'd NEVER happen... I haven't worn a dress in... probably 25 years. I don't even own one, though I'd love to have a pair of her thigh boots at my age though I'd probably fall down and break something... though come to think of it if I fell... twisted my ankle again... I'd be able to retire early and be disabled... no... I love my job. The only thing I have in common with my main is perhaps a love of spiders.

    You have fun with that... However I do know where you live...

    Though I think they are pretty cool... I'd probably want to save them all. *makes note to pack a spider flute* I'll just pied piper them to your room... Muhahaha! *insert wicked evil dark laughter*


    Besides according to Severn I somehow control spiders and send them to spy on people... so by all means make a donation to my spider horde!

    Coming in on Thursday morning and want to go visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Anyone that lives there, should I get a car or is there public transportation? Whichever is easiest??

    So, if I go through the UO page's link, it tells me something like "no hotels meet this search criteria" but if I go to the hotel's website and enter the code BROADSWORD, it gives me a discounted rate. Anyway, it looks like I can still reserve a room at the hotel normally, and I guess that's all that matters.

    I don't live there, but have been up to DC quite a few times in the past. You will probably want a car.

    The actual city of DC has a fantastic public transportation system called the Metrorail, but it does not extend all the way out to Herndon where the UO developers are (it will in 2020 though). You would have to switch between trains and buses to get out there which would end up being annoying, especially for someone who doesn't know the bus lines, which could result in getting stuck somewhere miles from where you needed to go.

    As for Arlington Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, it is truly a humbling place and well worth the visit. If you are interested in historical things there is also a museum set up inside the former home of Robert E. Lee at the top of the hill, and tour groups that explain the significance and stories behind many of the larger grave markers in the surrounding area.

    I just had to revoke my RSVP. My carpal tunnel is getting to the point that I need to get it taken care of this year instead of delaying it another year. Hoping to get both wrists fixed over two months since my deductible is more than hit.

    I would much rather be going to a party.

    I've put this off nearly three years. But there are days where I'm constantly having to pause work to get feeling back in my hands. My rheumatologist is pushing me to get it taken care of sooner rather than later as it may help with other issues as well. Plus it will prevent permanent nerve damage.

    Are there going to be Virtual Tickets ? For the castles and other items Shirts, Memorabilia, etc...
    It would be a good way to boost revenue $$$$$
