Plan to have my bike fixed by then, by today actually.  New wheels etc.

Here's her picture (sigh):


More for the lightning talk(s):


Looking forward,

>> Hey Pythoneers!
>> At last week's meeting there was some talk about getting together to brainstorm submissions for PyCon 2012 talks and/or tutorials. It would be amazing if we had some Portland representation at PyCon this year! The deadline for talk submission this year is October 12th - that's 3 weeks from tomorrow.
>> If anyone is up for it, I think we should start brainstorming this weekend, and maybe we can get one or two more brainstorming/pep-talk sessions in before the deadline. Remember, you don't have to have a completely formed talk in order to submit, you just need an idea that you can flesh out by March if that idea gets accepted.
>> It would also be great if anyone who has submitted and/or given talks at conferences before could join us and help us through the process. I've submitted to a conference once as a co-speaker, but it wasn't accepted, so the submitting (with Selena Deckelmann holding my hand the whole way ;)) is as much as I know about the process.
>> I've created a survey to keep track of how many Python people are feeling up to submitting a talk, and who can meet when: http://goo.gl/q7fWI. Feel free to ignore the stationery on that survey... someday I will change it from my old Emma testing one. ;)

>> P.S. We can also discuss how we might all get down there… *cough*gigantic decorated van*cough*?? Just sayin'.
