It probably would have helped if I hadn't gone straight to third shift when I first got the job. That basically destroyed my social life for about five months, and by the time I got moved to seconds, we'd lost touch.

I'm still totally down for meeting you (and friends) for coffee or a drink somewhere, but my schedule is a lot busier than it used to be. Feel free to drop me an e-mail or an IM to set something up, if you'd like. :)

and on a side note.. it took me this long to realize that you live in IL, and realize that had i actually noticed this earlier, I would have been in the same area as you every weekend for years!
however, I stopped heading to game out in Champagne about 3 years ago when the games (LARP) i was in broke up! funny how some of those things happen isn't it?

but yeah, just wanted to share that. giggle.
