Ohhh! More nerds! Tina, I will love you forever if you nerd out for me. You too Brandon!

I am trying to figure out a location. Should we go with some place like Beaner's? I have zero lighting equipment so if we do this indoors I will need others to volunteer to bring all of that. Any other suggestions?

Do you all want to do a weeknight evening or a weekend day/evening? I will try to pick a night that our nerds can be there or else there will be no nerds to make this spectacular event happen.

More information. I will have a date up very soon. It is most likely going to be a Sunday in April (not Easter).

If you have an instrument please bring it. Bonus if it is a clarinet, a triangle, or a recorder. We will be doing band portraits.

More to come.......

Okay peeps. Let's set a date. I'm going to throw out two dates and see which works best for most people.

April 18th or May 2nd.

Which one do you prefer?

I am in love with the lasers. Lasers would rock my world. I almost asked a few weeks ago if anyone had lasers, but figured that there was no way anyone would. I should not have doubted the power of the DPG. ;-)

Please come Karl. I'll come pick you up if needed. :-)

Nate, I hope you can make it, but obviously understand if you can't!

Does anyone have any chairs or other seating that might go good in a nerd portrait? I'm going to bring a couple of stools most likely.
