    So we would be in this big convention place, with tags with our names, nicks and number of posts. And we would be bumping into each other and speaking in all these different languages and correcting each other helplessly and the post number in our tag would be going up automatically.

    And there would be loooots of chocolate cakes all over the place.

    Or we could organize the party with different rooms:

    SP-ENG
    (there you would have the busy Vocab lounge, the more relaxing and quiet chill out Grammar room, the Library aka Resources place and the Special Terminology Café (where all those clever professional translators would hang out talking about their special words)

    Similar louges with the Italian, German, French, English and Portuguese Forums and the great Other Languages Restaurant.

    The Culture Disco Room - Loud music, lots of drinks and cool people discussing important stuff and not so important stuff.

    The Comments&Suggestions Bar - Mike will be serving drinks there. Don't miss it.

    With so many members we will need the "Oh My God" saloon....Serving drinks and shooters aptly named....

    There would be the "I didn't know He was a She...Or..She was a He"... Highball....the "te gato"..

    The ..."there so cute"... shooter...the "VenusEnvy"for the women and the "LanceLOt" for the men..

    The ..."Did you understand a word they said?'..in pints...the "benjy"...

    The ..."I didn't imagine them looking like that"...on tap...the "Sharon"...

    The...."Where does she get all the information?"...tall...the "Artrella"...

    The ..."There so sweet"...slammer..the.. "Like an Angel"...

    All served with a grain of salt......and with little Belens floating in them...(duck shaped ice cubes)...

    Behind the bar tending will be Lauranazario...asking for more context and giving us the scientific term for what we ordered.....

    The night watchman...GaryKnight... making sure the Mod's don't come in with big sticks....

    The music supplied by the world famous DJ...alc112

    And just down the hall will be the...Marc1...comedyclub...showcasing...Cuchu... after cleaning up all the pies thrown...this time to have the heckles thrown...with the intermission featuring.... Gaer.... on the piano....

    You must carry your own drinks there...or else the "pinkpanther" will steel them....

    Happy hour...24 hours...Prices subject to change....yadda, yadda, yadda


    te gato;)
    done to humor not humiliate....

    This event will be the most memorable and enjoyable convention a person could ever attend. :) Count us in (me and NTFS). NTFS has a suggestion, what about a cooking contest so that we could taste some of the comida española and other delicious delicacies all over the world. (yummmmy!) :)

    why Rome?

    we could draw a circle on the places where we all live and then find an equidistant place from all that circles.

    how big is your house, Dan?

    "What type of Belen would you wish in your drink? There are many species of them...and would they be 'male' or 'female'...and if you want it translated...we are going to have to move your drink to a different room.":D

    Thank you again for the laugh...

    Para poder hacerlo realidad, se necesitaría mucha publicidad en el foro, así se junta mucho dinero para los pasajes y los gastos "Administrativos".

    No creo que sea posible... vamos a tener que sufragar nuestros propios gastos ya que el dinero de WR se usará para el alquiler del local.
    Hablando del local... dime si crees que aquí cabremos todos. Mike está buscando alternativas. :p

    I haven't visited this thread before, and it was just the day before yesterday when I was thinking about how cool would be a big meeting to talk, share opinions, and so on... but My God!! this is GREAT, you make me laugh out loud!!!, of course it would be marvellous to have the pleasure of meeting each one of the great forumers that we have here, so I hope one day this stops being a mad dream and became a real meet.-

    Thank you Ladies and Gentleman all of you made my day!!!

    Someone should have told me that this place was addictive!!! :D

    Cheers!!!
