    Since my original thread regarding the first Fort Lauderdale/South Florida meetup has been totally highjacked, I thought I'd start one fresh to see if this one might survive unscathed.

    I've scheduled the first Fort Lauderdale/South Florida Meetup for RealJock members for next Wednesday, July 11, 2012, at 6:30 PM at Rosie's Bar and Grill in beautiful downtown Wilton Manors.

    We currently have thirteen who have confirmed and three maybe's.

    Anybody else want to join us?

    Might be fun to make the short journey down to FTL and actually meet some of you local RJers! You can put brix & aeois in the "maybe" column.

    @Brix: Great...let me know for sure, one way or the other as we get closer, so I can have enough places arranged. Thanks.

    Rosie's is mean! I went there a few weeks ago for Sunday brunch with a friend and they had stopped serving omelettes which was the only thing I wanted icon_sad.gif

    Maybe? Nah.
    Definitely? Yes!

    Even if my expedition here gets extended (possibility), I'll fly in to the next one (if it's on a Friday or Saturday). Even though I absolutely loathe FL laws, I absolutely love the atmosphere and climate. And people. icon_biggrin.gif

    Edit: Even Art_Deco. He's one of the nicest guys I've met on RJ, even though his posts can be pretty awful sometimes. Nobody's perfect. icon_biggrin.gif

    If you're not, I'm gonna kick yer butt. I know you're not mean in person. People just interpret your typing that way cause they don't know you. And "C" is fucking awesome. He better be there too. icon_biggrin.gif

    Drop it. We won't be there. End of story, OK? We get trashed enough online, we don't need to get trashed in person. The bad guys win again, but at least spare us this much abuse, OK? I thought you were friendly to us. icon_confused.gif

    They already misinterpret you. Maybe you also misinterpret them. I know I totally misinterpreted CuriousJockAZ. He's not nearly the asshole he comes across online sometimes. Body language speaks volumes, but not in typed words.

    Lets put our political differences aside and meet as humans. Who acres if some disagree on things? After all, you've been involved in politics. You already know how heated it can get. You also know that in public, the one with the coolest head usually wins. You've always had a cool head in person. Some may vehemently disagree with you, but others will love you for the way you handle it. icon_biggrin.gif

    Being able to publicly and diplomatically address those who disagree with you is one of the first things the military teaches. icon_wink.gif

    Because I try to be diplomatic and have people respect each other, in spite of differences?
    Don't tell me your in-person character is just a front. That would break my heart. icon_sad.gif

    Is this now a hijacking or a derailing?

    Wish I could be there this time, guys! Maybe during Hanukkah.

    You're attacking PAUL now, probably your staunchest friend and defender on RJ?

    What the hell is going on with you??


    It's just a glaring example of how Art_Deco operates. If there isn't already some sort of drama involved to make him the center of attention so he can play "the victim", he will create some. The sad thing here is that I actually had the pleasure of meeting Paul at the Phoenix meet up, and we could not have had a more pleasant, friendly, and fun time. The one time Art_Deco's name came up, Paul had nothing but glowing and complimentary things to say about him. Very sad to see Art be so spiteful when it's not warranted, especially towards a genuine supporter of his like Paul. Yet another Fort Lauderdale thread derailed it appears. Seems that the common denominator in all of this is the (SHOCKER!) "light" Colonel himself.
