Along those thoughts...

What about networking? I am sure there are those out there on this forum that could help each other in the business world... after all we all need more $$$ to buy more diamonds!

If any of you need help in the software industry, send me a note!

I can't even start naming names because then I'd leave people off and I don't want to leave anyone out! Suffice to say, I think it would be great to meet everyone!

And I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm already networking. Let's see, I go to T-Rex for all of my pharmaceutical questions, Juan gets my "can this be made" questions, Irish and I chat about housing in the South Bay, etc. etc.

This is a great community, even if we squabble once in a while .

What a fun question! I know I am going to leave a lot of great people out, but here goes--off the top of my head:

Rodentman - What a character!
Juan - Very charming, talented jewelry maker and a brilliant scientist too!
Empresseva - We have the same taste--you can shop for me any day!
Babblingal - I still laugh at that story about your plastic shell dish
Cassandra - I'd like to see your artwork and your jewelry designs
Sweet - You are so enthusiastic!
Emnightingale - Because you think I am so practical
Diamondangel - You are a revered DT institution
Wink - I'd like to speak Portuguese with you
Shelby - You shared your health scare with us so now I feel like I know you
Mercier - We could compare pearls
Bridget - You seem like fun! I love your picture--it looks like you are smashed in a Dublin bar or something
YourGemologist & Oldminer - Because you both know your stuff--you'd be interesting to talk to at a cocktail party
PX - I want to see that Asscher ring you are having made

So many more, but I don't have the time to type the names out--Cinnamon Girl, Buttercup, Siloxane, Irish, Gin, Adamas2, Jan & Brad, Sopapia, Atalantah, etcetera.

Let's face it. Anyone who contributes to DT in a positive way is a winner! I have had hours of educational entertainment from this site. It is a fun place to visit.

I cannot say that Iíd like to meet anyone person on DT more than another except for the fact that there are certain people who have revealed such things about themselves that I feel it would be truly something to sit and chat outside of this forum outside of jewelry (yes, I excluded jewelry). Then there are those of you who have revealed very little or nothing that I haven't even had the chance to get to know, come out and play mysterious lurkers


Iím attending another forum group weekend thing in North Carolina in about a month, some of the people Mr. Bella has met several times before and another couple has vacationed with us, for me it wont be the same and even for Mr. Bella it isn't the same as he tunes into that site like once a month if heís lucky and believe me itís not nearly as incredible as DT but keeps him in touch with some real cool people that have a particular hobby as him ~ nipple piercing, just kidding. But itís neat that every year thereís at least a small group of folks (aprox 50-100) who make the time to get together and we should, we have somehow all joined up on this website and discuss everything from diamonds to bras, who else you going to call your friends

Oh, one more thing...I would want Less to go and for him to see that Iím not the spawn of the devil himself.

I'm not even going to try, because I know I'll leave someone out! However, two guys I'm planning on meeting are Jonathan, the next time I'm in NY with the in-laws, so I can see all those luscious stones side by side, and Icestore, the next time I'm visiting my sister, so I can drool over his colored diamonds.

Yikes, a tough one -- I'm afraid to begin, because I'm sure I'd leave someone out!

For starters, though: Rodentman, Bella, Babblingal, Empresseva, Emnightengale, Sweet, Juan, JDanforth, Emachell, Shelbyscout, Diamondangel, SusanP, Atlantah, Maria, Arthurman, Mercier, CinnamonGirl, Oldminer, Iceman, MelissaCT, Hest88, GIA...

Dang it -- I'm SURE I'm leaving someone out -- please, forgice me!

NOTE: Isn't it interesting -- in a very good way -- that Rodentman seems to top all our lists so far?

Nashiyama and Melissa.

Why?

Nashiyama - after following DT for the last few weeks, I'm in the mood to extract RM an apology - with a large crowbar if necessary.

Melissa - because she's bloody gorgeous!!

What an interesting question.

I have to concur with others - there are so many people I would like to meet. Everyone makes such unique contributions to the forum. I appreciate all the expert advice I have received along with consumer advice. I also appreciate the friendships that have formed.

Thank you, Kabuki and Cheryl IP, for mentioning my name. I have to admit, it would be great to meet you both! Rodentman and I have discussed meeting and bringing our pet rocks. (This may be possible since we live in the same area.) However, school keeps me from doing a lot of things! That includes keeping me from diamondtalk!

All the regulars seem so interesting that it's hard to name everyone that I'd love to meet. But there are a few who's brain I'd love to pick:

Juan: I LOVE those family designs he has, and would love to brainstorm with him on them.

Johnathan: Those stones!!! I'd love to get more of an education on diamonds and what makes one more valuable than another (aside from the 4Cs)

Iceman: He's my alter ego! I would never do 1/4 of the adventures he goes on, and I'd love to sit down and hear all about them.

I don't know if the bar was in Dublin for sure.

>>YourGemologist & Oldminer - Because you both know your stuff--you'd be interesting to talk to at a cocktail party <<

They are required to have 8 drinks each first.

I'd really like to meet everyone. But first I have to meet The Rodentman and ask him why he thinks he's so funny. Also, I am curious as to:1 biker tattoo 23 rodent tattoos and the FS image of an EightStar tattoo. And, since he's an alleged accountant, why can't he account for himself.

How could I possibly pick?

Well, in all honesty, I'd *really* love to spend a night out with the very youngest women in here (Jess, Polyhex, Cass, Tara, Siloxane, Buttercup, Jaxie, MelissaCT, etc...). We could have a blast.

I'd also love to meet the DT royalty (AGBF, Shelby & Scout , Diamondangel, etc...)

I'd love to meet some of the vendors and experts... everyone knows who they are - not necessary to list...

The no-crap ladies - Kabuki, Eva, Maria, etc...

The DT sweethearts, the mellow ladies, and the friendly people: GIA, shimmer, atalantah, Hest, Steph, emachell, Babs, Bella, CherylP, MavMom, sopapia, Iris, Irish, etc..

The beautiful people: Adamas, Juan, Rodentman, Gin, etc...

Gosh, I feel so guilty that I didn't mention everyone! Eep. Well, I hope no one's too hurt...

I think this forum has the most interesting and enjoyable people on the internet! The only person I would feel awkward meeting would be Garry Holloway. We have had some serious flaming sessions in the past. I certainly don't hold a grudge.

Also wanted to add: The DT group seems to be as great looking on the inside as they are on the outside.

A few years ago our company had a large meeting with financial people from all our international branches. I met the man from Australia who kept saying "mate" to me. I repeated that I didn't want to. NOW that I understand, I would have no trouble with Garry.

Cassandra, Kabuki, CherylP, GIA, and Emnightingale:

Thank you for mentioning my name. You're very kind! Likewise, it would be a pleasure to meet you.

Personally, I would love to meet any DT regular. If any of you plan to be in my neck of the woods, feel free to drop me a PM. We can meet for coffee, and go look at diamonds! ^_^

Thank you *so* much for mentioning me specifically in your posts =) That left a smile on my face for the rest of the day

I think I *can't* answer the question because I'd wanna meet EVERYONE!! (with the exception of a wannabe porn star, a racist pig and the occasional smart-ass)

I mean, where else on the internet are you going to find technical writers, moms,jewelers,gemologists ,students,bankers,designe rs,sales people,financial gurus,rodent lovers,rocket scientists, system architects,mathematicians , interior designers and craftsmen??????

That's what I love about DT!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to meet everybody!!! Well, maybe not the local Nazi.....

I love meeting new people under any circumstances, but what struck me when I was a newbie here several months ago was how quickly new posters are welcomed into the "DT family."

I had never participated in any type of Internet chat forum, and lurked for awhile before posting, but immediately felt connected to the regulars here.

Diamondangel was my first contact, responding with a PM to my simulant questions and making me feel welcomed. Cassandra has become an online friend (can't wait to see my Cassandra original artwork!).

But really, everyone here seems fascinating in their own way, so without naming names, let me just say THANK YOU to everyone for the fun, informative, entertaining, and genuine views you all share!
