Mid-Atlantic jellies: Can you lend a hand this weekend?

Asked by augustlan (46609 points ) September 30th, 2010

This Saturday, two jellies from Australia will be arriving in Washington, DC. I was to host them overnight and have a meet-up with several of you on Sunday.

Sadly, I’ve come down with bronchitis. Hacking up a lung is SO not conducive to this endeavor. Is there anyone nearby who can offer them overnight accommodations for Saturday night and/or entertain them on Sunday til early afternoon?

I’m so freakin’ pissed at the timing of this illness. >:|

Well, if they can land in NYC, we can host ‘em.

They’re actually IN NYC right now. They’re planning on taking the train down Saturday morning. If I can get it touch with her, maybe she can delay that leg of the trip by one day? So far, I can’t find her. :(

@augustlan I’ll pm you our cell numbers – give them our numbers and we’ll try to work something out. If they don’t mind having kids around. I’m somewhat busy throughout the day and definitely at night but we have no issue figuring all the details out and they can certainly stay here overnight and Sunday.

You are a wonderful human being, Simone. I’ll definitely send her the numbers and the suggestion. Thanks. :)

@augustlan You bet, it’ll be kind of great, obviously. :) all right, I’m off to bed.

Hey Simone, thankyou so much for the offer bug we already paid like 70 bucks for our train ticket tomorrow so we’re gonna head to DC anyway. Thankyou for offering though :)

@shrubbery Sure thing! Hope you have a great stay there and figure it all out w/Augustlan.

@shrubbery We live in Alexandria, VA right outside of DC. You are welcome to stay overnight on Saturday. We have a spare room with one queen-size bed. Just let me know what you think. I will PM you my phone number.

I would like to help but I’m a broad right now.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@janbb I do not want you to correct that. Love it.

Aww, this thread makes me want to send one of these to @Simone_De_Beauvoir and @marinelife for their kind and generous spirits, and a gentle, comforting one to @augustlan.

@shrubbery, welcome to our shores, and I hope you have a great visit.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@Jeruba I’ll take that!

augustlan's avatar

@Jeruba I’ll take that, too. :)

I’m very happy to report that the crisis has been averted! @marinelife will be hosting the Aussies tomorrow night. What a great group of people you all are. Thanks so much, everyone!

@krose1223 The Fluther office is in San Fran, too!

That’s what I thought… And that’s exactly where I am right now. Right in the heart of San Fran :)

@shrubbery She’s also a pretty terrific person in real life. Have fun! I sure hope I’m better later in the week and can still see you while you’re here.

rangerr's avatar

Now… how do we get them from Marina to me?

augustlan's avatar

Um. Good point. I’ll PM you.

rangerr's avatar

One hour until I’m leaving to pick them up from Marina’s! :D
