I need to know if he's just as entertaining in person as he is here.

We can always Skype or similar service with video conferencing to save you the money on travel expenses but you have your favorite coffee. While I don't drink coffee, (never fancied the taste of coffee) but I do drink tea and hot chocolate or some other drinks.

I personally avoid international phone calling. If you ever decide to stop by in Astoria, maybe we can meet and chat.

I don't think DC is a coffee drinker, seems more the kale avocado smoothie type with a shot of wodka.

Patrik, so I could cut him down to size face-to-face.

Liberty Bell or Steven Ward always had sage advice.  Always looked forward to their posts.  If they're not taking calls, then I'd buy the first round of drinks with Non.

Hey, I'd grab the 2nd round. BTW, Liberty Bell is Donna.

'BTW, Liberty Bell is Donna'. Mind blown. Makes so much sense, though. Thanks for the smile on a Friday morning.

What happened to Steven Ward?

I'd sit down with b3ta ... my guess is that we'd agree more in person than we do online.

I wouldn't ever sit down with Ken Koense though. Can't stand that guy.

I see an Archinect series here: Two Architects in an Uber drinking Guinness

I think I'd still rather work with you than drink with you. You should take that as a compliment. If you want to have a Guinness or two, I won't stop you as long as it doesn't affect your work.

Busy, as expected, also... But I won't be leaving town so, you know how to reach me if you have any down time. 8-)

OMG you guys are all so funny and smart and snarky and cool, how could I ever pick just one?!? I honestly think that most architects can get along with one another on a fairly primal level. Lots of disagreements to be had on the surface, yes, but down deep we all want and believe in the same things, AND we all agree that clients, while valuable and necessary, are often a huge pain in the ass.

In all seriousness I am ALWAYS down to meet another Archinecter at any time. But most people avoid Indianapolis.

Difficult to choose, simply just for starting the Thread Central and Proust Questionnaire threads I'd buy a coffee for abracadabra, for introducing me to some great music through some of you I'd like to have a coffee with gruen for starting the What music are you listening to? thread, for the music posted in that thread I wouldn't mind sipping a cup with tintt and the infamous Chris T. in any of his incarnations. To hear the accent in person I'd see if Per Correll still exists, and introduce him to Rick B. for tea (I think they would get along great).

I have a few of those over-engineered, over-priced yeti mugs. They hold up. I only purchased one of them myself. The rest were given to me by reps. I even have a few knock-offs from reps too ... but I don't specify their stuff anymore, lol

P.S. great thread to resurrect

poop876

I hate those Yeti cups for coffee....the coffee is too hot for my taste!

Archlandia

I agree with that. This one often comes in handy when my coffee sits on my desk for about an hour before I even remember to drink it. By that time, perfect temp!

I agree with the keeping things too hot. We expect some heat loss with normal mugs that just doesn't happen unless you leave it for an hour or more without a lid on. I've started adding an ice cube or two to get the temp down for immediate consumption. They also work great for keeping drinks cold. My mug full of ice will last all afternoon with multiple fill ups.

Archlandia

Multiple fills per afternoon of an iced beverage? I think I'm picking up what you're putting down

Non Sequitur

No ice in my single-malt please.

Archlandia

I've heard that a splash of water actually enhances the flavor. I also don't drink scotch often so th is is based on hearsay

Non Sequitur

Some say so... I'm sure more than one such discussion ends up in fisticuffs but splash of water =/= ice.

Archlandia

Basically, the loser would be the individual that needs to water down their scotch, in either instance.

Lol, no scotch in my mug. Just some water. Don’t let this stop your fun though, carry on.

Chad Miller

Whiskey and diet coke. What can I say, I'm a type 1 diabetic.

Archlandia

If there's a will there's a way!

threeohdoor

@Chad, just be careful...alcohol blocks the liver from releasing glycogen. I find that a splash of juice/mixer in a cocktail counters that quite nicely, and frees me up a bit when looking at the menu.

Chad Miller

Oh I'm careful. I've been a type 1 diabetic for over 30 years. I monitor things really closely. Thank you for the tip though!
