Hmm...

Much as I'm tempted by the idea, I have a feeling that university degree number two is going to get in the way. Even if the meet-up is technically during the holiday...

But Rob, you can always get your University degree later in life. Meeting your fellow AG-ers is a once in a lifetime experience. So what is more important? ;)
But seriously, it would be grate if you could make it! Please register to this thread so I can keep bugging you! :)

Maruca 10-23-2009 11:04 AM

i am there
 
i am so there! And if there is anything I can help there organization wise (I can come earlier) you tell me Tsa.

Can't wait to meet you all and will try to be more active on here :)

Erwin_Br 10-31-2009 03:14 AM

Why? :frown:
If your parents say you can't go, tell them you have a forum mum who'll take care of you. ;)

tsa 11-01-2009 09:47 AM

Or is Amsterdam too far from Over there?

Hi all!

So, we set the date at April 10, 2010, and we have the following people who will surely come to Amsterdam:
Jelena
Tsa
Stepurhan
Luna with the difficult name
Maruca
People who want to come but are not sure if they can yet:
Andrea
Erwin_br
RLacey
Significant others and family are of course also welcome! The list of people who (want to) come is still quite short, so PM your fellow AG forum friends about this please.

I'd like to come but I'm not really sure whether money and time will permit with our house mercilessly sucking both in at the moment!! I haven't been to Amsterdam since art college so it'd be nice to see it with fresh eyes and of course to meet some of you despite being relatively new to the forums.

I'll let you know if we can make it!

It would be so much fun to meet you. Bring the wife! :)

Sorry for the off-topic, but this made me giggle :P Especially given that I get that comment with my real last name as well (that, and people complaining that it is so long :P)

tsa 11-10-2009 12:01 PM

You make me curious Luna! What is your real last name? :P

Luna Sevithiainen 11-10-2009 03:38 PM

Haha :P
I prefer not to post any possible link between my real name and my nickname on a forum open to the whole internet (yes, I am paranoid like that, but the first link google returns is my facebook account :P), so I'll PM you about that.

cristane 11-10-2009 03:47 PM

If my budget will be in good health, I'll either come to Amsterdam for the fantastic film festival (which starts April 14th), or go to the Brussels fantastic film festival (from April 8th - 20th), so there's a good chance I'll be in the neighborhood for the meeting. Heck, if I'll be in Amsterdam for the whole festival, hopefully I'll hang out with the forum locals more than once :)

Giligan 11-10-2009 09:03 PM

Me needs teh subsidies!


So unfortunately, I'll be stuck in this continent at the time. alas.

To me the name's odd only because the end is a Finnish last-name ending. Like Mäkinen or Virtanen. And actually it's not just the "nen" part but the whole "ainen". For example Tiainen (a name, but also means 'tit' or 'titmouse' as in the bird, not the body part...). And for example 'breakfast' in Finnish is 'aamiainen'...

I guess that's also part of the reason I've never had trouble remembering the name...

You know, I actually created that name my goal was to make it sound like a Finnish last name. I was at that time in a 'I want to learn Finnish because the language rocks'-period of my life (never found time for that though...). I once created a protagonist named Sevithiah, and decided to try to make that sound like a Finnish last name :P (I hope it doesn't mean anything odd in Finnish :P)
