I'll probably be able to make it to the org reunion. I might be on vacation though...
Should I ask Imy if she'll come back? The last time I talked to her was moths ago, and she said she wanted to leave everything that has to do with the org behind forever. She however has not deleted her accout yet.

Yeah, HIOFFCR is so awesome!

Heidi- That's great that you stalked the car with the cool license plate. lol. I wonder if the driver figured that out...

Not-so-random:  Friday after work I totally followed a car with a fun license plate just so that I could take a photo for the Forum.  I'll get it posted by tomorrow.
:D I'll be looking forward to that!

Tell me about it with this heat wave.. it's insane! Although I don't think this morning as been as hot as yesterday. I'm getting a breeze! Then again, it just barely hit noon, the day is just beginning.

It's hot here in So. CA.  :flame: 
It IS. This heat is insane! I need to persuade my parents to get some AC in this place soon. It's pretty fresh right now, though.

I so want to visit California again! I miss it! Though, I'd rather come when it's winter here, though I know those native to CA find it too cool there, it's just right for me! I'll have to think about heading your way for a bit this winter! :)

I too, think it's great that you followed a car with a funny license plate just to take a pic! Right on!

Not-so-random:  Friday after work I totally followed a car with a fun license plate just so that I could take a photo for the Forum.  I'll get it posted by tomorrow.

I admit that last Friday after work I was in a bit of a bad mood. 

1.  It was Friday night and traffic in Hollywood was terrible (per usual). 
2.  To make things even worse there was some kind of premiere going on and a ton of streets were closed (which means the already bad traffic was multiplied by 42). 
3.  It was freaking hot

There I am, sitting in traffic, trying to get home when YO PLAYA and his Jaguar drives by me.  Immediately I think of this thread and perk up.  However, YO PLAYA's lane is moving faster than mine and by the time I grab my camera he's about eight car lengths in front of me.  Then, he proceeds to turn down another street.  Not to be defeated I totally decided to follow him.  (Stalker much?  Yea, that's me.)  It's not like I was going to make it home in a hurry anyway.  Luckily, he stopped at a nearby store and that's when I snapped a photo on the sly.

I don't know about you, but I love that he drives a Jaguar with the plate YO PLAYA.  In my opinion with a license plate like that you either need to be in an awesome car or a totally craptastic one.  ;)

Here are a few other plates that I've snapped since Friday.  It seems now that I'm looking for good plates they're popping up all over the place.  Unfortunately, I've also missed a few good ones because I couldn't get to my camera fast enough.  Safety first, people.  :U

- IM KIWI  (for our New Zealand friends, perhaps?)
- GLD LOXX  (Legally Blonde?)
- ONEDER W  (Wonder Woman fan?)

There you have it!

LOL - I have to say I've had one ... what was the word you used Heidi ... craptastic day and to come here and read this post gave me just the chuckle I needed.

I have not seen one interesting number plate since we started this little stalker fest and I'm feeling very ripped off!!!

Those are great, Heidi!

Every time I get frustrated with traffic here, I think of you...and my friend Carlos who lives in LA. I don't know how you guys handle it on a daily basis. I would have killed someone by now!

I also love your word 'craptastic' - that has to be inserted into Webster's Dictionary sometime soon! It made me laugh...something that it seems many of us around here today, very much need! ;D

I haven't seen any interesting license plates either, and I've been so watching for them so I could post my own pictures...not just silly ones found on google. I've seen them before, so they've got to be out there!

This is a fun little game now, Heidi! :)

So, no to break the fun atmosphere we have going one...but any more on the summer ORG REUNION?

Hey Brenda.  When I intially saw the YO PLAYA plate that Heidi posted I immediately thought of you for some reason ;D.  And yes I'm just a recent convert to the Twilight Saga (thanks Kami :-*) and now have a new obsession of the moment.  Is it wrong to be in love with a fictional character at my age?? :-[ :D

Another reason why I wish I lived closer to the west coast! I would be at Comic-Con in an instant to meet them...I'm so jealous if you get to go!

Wooooo Caryn's a Twilighter! Kami also got me hooked on the books (:hearts:). If being in love with a fictional character is wrong (especially when that character is Edward Cullen), then a person doesn't want to be right  :D

Exactly, Caryn, it's nothing to be ashamed of. ;) :D

I started reading it because I knew Kami was into it, and then I loved it! :hearts:

Shell mentioned all the love directed towards me for getting yall into Twilight and I had to come see. This is awesome! Also, hence the new addition to my sig, lol. And what do you guys mean "is it wrong to love a fictional character??" Psssh. Twilight forever!

Heidi, :D :D YO PLAYA is by far the most awesome thing I read this week, Hilarious! (Brenda, that also reminds me of you, lol).

Hi gang,

I'm looking for people who are interested in forming a planning committee for the ORG Reunion.  I certainly won't turn anyone away who wants to help, but ideally it'd be nice if I had at least three interested people.  No reunion planning experience required, heh.  Committee members will help organize, brainstorm, create imagery, etc.

Send me a PM to join. 

Many thanks!   :hearts:

~Heidi
