Invite #1: A 10 year high school reunion didn't top my list of things I needed to attend and albeit fun as it may seem, it more or less came across to me like some long-winded gathering after a family related funeral where everyone spends time because of some secret obligation more than something anyone would do on a regular basis. So I opted out.
Invite #2: My buddy kpR is going to Vegas at the end of May with some people I knew from my college days and although he would originally be there for some software tradeshow, he would have the weekend to kick back and whore it up. This was a little more hard to turn down as I think the last time I kicked it with him was over 2 years ago. Financial obligations aside, the time just would not work.
Invite 3: I am amidst trading some music with a friend who I just recently found out works for Defcon and BlackHat (killer combo there?) and was invited to make it down to Vegas in August for Defcon 14 (and would love to go) but once again gritted my teeth and had to opt out. I am however planning to make it to Defcon next year so I will attempt to round up more geeks who are interested. Karma had better serve me something good soon or I just might swallow the entire contents of the tasty looking Drano liquid sitting on my dust covered bathroom floor.
