Calling the office and asking if we know when we will open..

Will give you a whole new meaning to “end of the line”. If you had any idea how far I was from that number, well, you’d know not to call.

P.S. If you’re under 18, it also will seal your fate, even sooner.

I’ll have an update later today, but no, I won’t be saying when the world will be open.

    So excited… Grinning from ear to ear… Ok, grin just dropped when I remember that I lost all of my designing templates in a hard drive crash. Still happy There is opening!

    Mr.Wilson Can I ask you why There will be 18+ ?

    • #5 by jimony on 2011.07.23 - 11:55 pm

      Because 25+ wasn’t on the menu.

    Geez whats next, These kids are going to literally knock on the office door asking when There will re open? Hey.. Don’t you kids have homework to do anyways rather than worrying when There re opens?

    DISCLAIMER: I am by no means making any such suggestions as to knocking on Makena’s office door. Reason why below.

    Knock Knock.. *door opens* MW – Can I help you?, Kid – When will There… MW slams the door on kids face!… LOL, what MW says to himself remains a secret, so DON”T ASK!!!!

    There will be open… when it’s open… would be awesome if it opened tomorrow… but I know that’s wishful thinking lol. Yay to those who’ve received invitations for ThereIM… wish I was there… but I’ll be there sooner or later… even if it is when it opens up for everyone πŸ™‚

  23. #41 by JasonMK on 2011.07.21 - 6:20 pm

    I don’t even want to know what would happen if someone knocked on the door (and don’t know, I’m not even thinking about it. Besides, we aren’t even in the same time zone). Thanks for the update, even if it is just a light hearted glimpse into what it is like to reestablish connection to an entire universe (or would it be planet? or both?).

  24. #42 by MikeCesar on 2011.07.21 - 6:15 pm

  25. #43 by TreGhost on 2011.07.21 - 6:02 pm

    LOL@all the teens through all these posts. I’m sure they are laughing thinking they have some plan to get in, oblivious to the fact they are all being logged as minors as they post making it obvious.

  26. #44 by Mark Behncke on 2011.07.21 - 5:58 pm

    Instant self-gratification. If the younger generation doesn’t get it, then they act all pissy. I really wish people remembered what patience is.

    Keep up the good work MW and crew.

There is There and we want to be there.. but we are here.. and therefor cannot be there until there is here. Then we can be on there.. However, we still can’t be there. (Sorry, my moments of clarity justify my lucidity). and viseversa. …Confused?? So am I..
