Except for the first weekend in September, I should be able to make it there. I'll be watching this tread and let you know if I can go once a date will be decided.

certainly LabourDay weekend would be a poor choice
but possibly the 9th of Sept ?

If you wait until the end of September then Fall Rhapsody in Gatineau park would be an option as well.

got your PM!

I'm all up for it but only after Sept. 10th. Very busy until then. Ideally an evening during the week since I spend most of my weekends at the cottage. :-)

What a cool building (modelled after Buckingham Palace)! I worked there for 10 years. It's too bad the inside isn't open to the public. Wish I could go, but I live too far away now. :(

Have fun y'all! Plenty of great photo ops around that area.

Waah-waah!!! I want to go too! I love Ottawa, last time I was there was last October. But I don't see any trips to Ottawa in the near future though.

Studies and work keeps me from making any commitment in the fall months but I'd crave a winter GTG. Snow covered architecture beside skaters on the canal, got my vote. I've been thinking about a trip to visit family out there in December.

any other Ottawa'ns out there ?

Ok I just had an epiphany... round 2 or 32342434324234 anyhow here's the deal if we are all on the same team everyone on dpc we can never lose, everyone wins a ribbon on every challenge, in fact we all win 3 and if we win every ribbon we win them all. I have solved the dpc rubic's cube to scoring, life the big fish and everything after that.

TEAM....

"it's a small world after all."

that's it keep it simple susan.

I'm gonna make the logo and be the first anyone that wants in ad me to your favs and send me a private message and i'll send you the logo or just fucking printscreen and photoshop that shit like what i do when flash comes up and i want what i see ;)

Cheers.

J.C.

The truth is finally out. I'm around here shallalalalalala

laddeeedah ... I'm listening to Van Morison. "Oh coming over, romeo, there you go. Lord have mercy. DOMINO!"

the answers are all there if you believe.

"oh domino"

who wants to knock me over.

I FUCKING DARE YOU!

team iceland will join us we just have to BORG Them in. :D

we all win. No one loses every photo is everything it has to be.
08/18/2006 09:24:45 PM · #17
after everyone laughs and realizes i'm crazy as a goose sniffing ape hugging madman from ireland, that is prettier than this man and is pretty sure that i'm getting out of this and your all fucked says.

after everyone laughs about team it's a small world after all, i still remember the ride... it changes to...

no surprise

TEAM INCLUSION

we are all connected if we want to be we all are the same we see the world and thus are all right. and we deserve the blue ribbon because that's all you shoot when you join dpc or know someone who does. DPC

Don't Pray, Coalesce (spelling you get my drift)

Van Morison says he got it from Jesse James, that's me and i'm right cuz just think about what we can do if we all realize we are all in this together.

Team Zen

We already are all on the same team. I am already right and it's already finished. I have my blue ribbon and god loves me. HAHA sucka get yours there is never enough time. so take your time or don't. Choose what you want to believe. now it's time for me to go see snakes on a plane with my friends.

Take Care and invite everyone to look at this who wants to hear the truth for once.
08/18/2006 10:07:59 PM · #18
I just got home... was helping a friend jack up his house ... and want to thank Beetle for bringing this to my attention.

I am up and ready to do anything in the National Capitol Region, and all I need is a call, and I will be there.

For those of you wishing to visit the Ottawa area, please feel free to contact me, I have an extra bedroom and would be more than happy to accomodate visitors... lord knows I have been blessed with knowing and visiting fellow DPC members who took me in and put up with me.

Do not hesitate to PM me....in either of Canada's official languages....

sounds like we have a plan
[user] redeemer [/user] let me have some of what you've benn having

any other wall flowers ?
08/19/2006 02:16:31 AM · #20
it was the crack pipe... or was it the booster juice, 3 beers, covosier, brandy with milk and ice and chocolate milk, and then snakes on a plane to top it off. Nothing says crazy like Samuel L saying "I have fucking had it with these MOTHER FUCKING SNAKES on this MOTHER FUCKING PLANE!" it was like watching pulp fiction but knowing the punchline ahead of time.

Oh btw. I will not be joining. Make the logo Ralph and setup the meeting. I'm giving my camera shit away, or I'm selling it can't decide. I don't need a camera to see the world. I have fucking eyes. They have way better iso, you name it. Canon and Nikon suck compared to my eyes. And i'm not gonna mope about being a high myope with astigmatism and one eye worse than the other. :P

So there. Follow the above recipe sans the crack pipe and you can have an epiphany. Also if you like my photos enjoy cuz that's it for a good long while. 21 good number. ENJOY Cheers.

also my last post on here. Membership put to good use. I vanquished those assholes from iceland making us look like pussies, with there superior gear, skill and hotty women. I think I'm gonna go and undermine them from within. Cheers Homey's Peace.
