Not only will I be there, but I have the meaningless honor of being the first person to register for TAM 8 (at least that's that the JREF twitter account had to say).

I am coooooooooooooooooooool!!!

I registered for the main conference, the all-workshop package, and all of the evening shows except P&T (whom I've seen a bunch of times already).

I am currently debating if I should fork over the $1000 for one of them fancy, exclusive-folks lunches. Hmmm.....

If you want to avoid paying for the shuttle bus, we'll offer space for a couple people in our rental car.

The first two people who come to Del Mar dressed as Shirley Temple, sing the "I'm a Little Teapot" song, then go over to the cafe and buy my one of those big black & white cookies get the spots.

Hey, I'd do it if I hadn't already paid for the bus. Plus the Shirley Temple wig's likely to cost more than 10 bucks.

You kiddin'? I'm going to have to set up a bracket system to narrow the field of entrants down to a final two. Good thing the P&T show isn't until Sunday, I'm going to need all those other days to hold the auditions.

Registered. Still need hotel and flight, but time enough for those....

And Saturday P&T for me, plus I'll have a car and can offer rides w/o any costume flummery (however, chocolate chip cookies will guarantee a ride back...)

Registered, but Paypal seems to believe that the JREF is fraudulent, and so they won't let me use my points visa for the purchase. All workshop pass, and looking forward to Goudeau's juggling instruction. I remain convinced that I'm too uncoordinated to learn to juggle, but figure that I'll give it a go.

After weeks of procrastination, I've booked my trip. Now that it's official, I'll be accepting requests (bribes) for assorted flavours of Tim Tams.

I will be booking later this week. I am definitely interested in having a taste after all the fuss over them, but not sure I want a full package.

Will there be Tim-Tam Slams?

I might be able to bring some Tim-Tams, too. But they will be the American/Peppridge Farm/Target Stores version; not the original Australian/Arnott's version. And, they might be a few months old, since Target is scheduled to stop selling them for the season, soon.

There are some spots in NYC where you can find the Arnott's versions year round. But, since they are imported from Australia, on an irregular basis, they would also be a little on the oldish side. And, they cost more. Not that it matters much. But $2 Target sales have spoiled me away from the $7-and-up NYC prices.

In exchange I will introduce you to a Las Vegas secret if we have time to leave the South Point. Ethel M chocolates. Their factory is actually in Las Vegas and not far from the Strip. Their specialty that they are know for is chocolates filled with liquor cremes. I also think thier version of a peanut butter cup is the best I have ever tasted (they make their own fresh peanut butter for it).
