|Chris and Tamara and other fun NJ folk

So it turns out that IBM is sending me to New Jersey on Monday and Tuesday to assist in a potential million dollar contract. I'll be flying into Newark on Sunday night, and then going to Mahwah, which was lovingly described to me an an "armpit" by a former New Jersey resident. Unfortunately, I think it's quite far from where you guys live, but surely we can figure SOMETHING out.|
Wow, that's just around the time when Chris is getting back from Texas. Great coincidence. :)
Mahwah. Can't say I've ever been there, though I've heard its name called many times while on the train to Manhattan. The best place to congregate might actually be in NYC, though it would probably be easy to train it down to Princeton as well.
I'll email you our new phone number, etc.
I bet you're horribly excited to come to NJ, huh?? I know..Everyone is. It's the Mecca of America, I always say.
Mahwah is the armpit of NJ. It really is the town that gives the rest of us a bad name. :) Let us know what your plans are when you've got your itinerary and stuff.
Something you may not understand as a Texan (I didn't for a while): if two people are in the state of New Jersey, no matter where, they're not that far apart. If neither of them have vehicles, it could be complicated, but we certainly have no shortage of those.
In other words, we should definitely try to hang out. Do you expect to have much in the way of free time?
I won't have a terrible amount of free time, but there should be enough room to do something. My plane gets in at 9:33 tonight, and I'm staying in Mahwah through Tuesday. Probably our best bet would be Monday evening, I guess. Anyhow, I'm staying at the Marriott Courtyard in Mahwah.
The info on the hotel is http://newark.hotelguide.net/data/h100017.htm
I'm sure you can just call and find me. I also should be on AIM, if you wanna log onto that.
Even if I don't see you guys, I'll be sure and give you a nice review of Mahwah.
