    It's a pretty straightforward hypothetical question, and I think it's going to be fun to discuss.

    If there was a get-together for us AtoZers, would you go? (Pretend that money and time off is no matter.)

    I'd come, I think it'd be cool to put a face to a screen name LOL. There's a few people on here I think I'd relate to in real life :)

    I might come. I'm not too big on small talk though. Everyone would be all, "Zoom is a snot." :lol:

    I'd come. It'd be really fun to see what everyone looks like...we could all wear a nametag with our AtoZ screen name! hehe. Ooooh open bar, nice! :)

    Our nametags would need to have our avatar, too, since that's how I keep a lot of people straight :)

    I've thought about that, I know some people live in my area and I often wonder if I've run into them at a conference or something without knowing it. I think it'd be neat! Then my husband wouldn't think I'm crazy for having such a great network of friend who are only online!

    I would come. I always check out the teachers in the teacher store and see if anyone posts about something cool that they bought that day. There are many of us in the Houston area, so I am sure I have seen someone somewhere.

    I'd go too! It'd be great to meet people! I came close to meeting Proud. As I was hired at the school she worked at but she moved :( Would have been cool to meet her. There are a lot in GA about an hour around me.

    We were soooo close! I am hoping to be back visiting this summer t-n-2. I'll either be staying in Lawrenceville or Lithonia. We could meet up with scienceteacher! I want to see your son too:).

    Maine is beautiful--it's been 20 years since I've been there; I'd go again. Of course, Ontario is beautiful as well! :D

    I'd be VERY happy to try to coordinate a gathering of central Ohio teachers, subs and paras.

    Sign me up!

    I'm in SW Ohio, catnfiddle, but count me in if you organize Ohio!
    I just got back from spending the day with my daughter at Ohio State.

    If money were no object, I would DEFINITELY come! I like talking too much for small talk to be an obstacle. Let's see...I still vote for a cruise (since money is not the object) but here are some other options...

    Let's vote on who has the weirdest/neatest school (inspired by a thread earlier this year) and throw it there. Hopefully it is in some mansion where we can all have a big giant 2 day sleepover. Not only should there be an open bar, but by day there should be the neatest trade show booths set up just for us with the most incredible things at the lowest prices. Heck, let's receive some demos just for being the trendsetters here on the forum. On day two though, all of that shuts down just so we can have a spa day. Guys, you can join in or you can have sports day (or whatever you plan). Alternating between spa treatments are wonderful chat/eat parties. The spas come to us and they set the scene so wonderfully so. Let's vote for a scrapbook committee to come in and collect information from us so we can network even tighter (some info more confidential than others), then they can take the pictures from our weekend and have professional scrapbookers make us a mini scrapbook from our weekend.

    That would be totally cool :) I know I am not very far from Science, goopp, teach-2, and Proud if you are talking Lithonia I am just around 15 miles from there. I have had so much fun and gotten so many terrific ideas from the teachers on here it would be great to actually thank them in person for the great feedback and listening to me vent when destressing.

    Well, I think this may be the needed incentive I have to stop wasting my money and to pay off all of my bills and to start saving (and also to lose weight)!!:lol: I have only had a real vacation once in the last 10 years and I would love to do something exciting this summer once my bills are paid off!! I only have a 6 week summer break and I have to move this summer but I can spare a week or two!

    I think it's a great idea! You know I do have a picture of some people in my head already, just from their personalities online - it would be really interesting to meet people in person. Everybody here is so fun and positive - we could have a great time!
