Mon-goose and Michi-Ganders
As several people have said "Well, do let us know when you're coming to Michigan.", I'm letting people know that it will be on September 24th-28th for the wedding of my Uncle. Ceremony's in Livonia, and I'll be staying with my grandparents in South Lyon.

This will be a major family event with many relatives, and they're naturally going to be occupying most of my time. Friday and Saturday are right out due to wedding rehearsal and an actual wedding. Thursday morning and Monday morning are the plane rides to and from Connecticut.

The optimum times for mongoose kidnapping for food/alcohol/tourism/White Castle would then be Thursday afternoon/evening or Sunday afternoon/evening; due to expectations of family time, not likely both. I should have access to my Grandfather's I-Think-It's-A-Buick, Could-Be-A-Lincoln, This-Thing-Is-HUGE car for transportation; but the Mom'Goose may have her own plans for the vehicle.

I'm quite open to ideas from folks in a reasonable driving distance! I'd happily do something medium-to-touristy like the Henry Ford Museum or the Detroit Zoo, or something as basic as "Come to our house and we shall drink."

I live in Canton, so about 10-15 minutes from Livonia (depending upon WHERE you are in Livonia). We have White Castle at I-275 and Ford Road. Would be available Thursday evening (after work, I get home between 5-5:30 pm) and Sunday afternoon, evening.

I have transportation if you need a ride and am willing to drive to wherever anyone else might wish to meet.

I'll probably only be in Livonia for the ceremony; South Lyon is where I'll be staying. Google maps says you're about 40 mintues away, and that's not too far at all to do somethin'. :)

We'll talk more as plans firm up, but I'm quite glad I'll get to see you again! It'll be the first time since.. Anthrocon.. 2001? :)

Oi you! Where are my swatches/samples that you said you'd give me (over four months ago), you lazy bugger.

Here's another incentive though ;)

*sits on your shoulders, hanging a can of snake-flavoured Dr.Pepper in front of you, dangling from a short fishing rod and just out of reach*

I might I might! I finally visited the closest theatre that has IMAX (though 'twas for _Ponyo_.) . If somethings is out that I just -have- to see, it may be more needful a stop.

Right now plans are bending more towards Ann Arbor, with Dorsai and other local friends having good concentratability there.
