jelknerperhaps you should get a collection of available times from ubuntourist first19:28
jelknerso you can plan a time that already works for him.19:28
ubuntouristI think I mentioned before: Wed, Thurs, Sat, Sun work best. Weekends being best of all.19:28
louiseaYup, that's what I had in mind from our last conversation19:29
ubuntouristI'm not much of a morning person. I'm up, but not about.19:29
jelkneri don't think our accountant will meet on a weekend19:30
louiseabut this weekend wont' work. So I should try for next Wednesday Thursday19:30
ubuntourist(Usually, I'm staying home to rouse milady, who is even less of a morning person.)19:30
louiseayeah I doubt a weekend meeting will be possible.19:30
louiseaand for me late morning/early afternoon is best19:30
jelknerkeep in mind we are getting a free consultation instead of a $250 per hour one19:31
jelknerso we go whenever the account says so19:31
ubuntouristOK. Where? I need to coordinate transportation.19:31
louiseathe office is in Bethesda19:31
ubuntouristjelkner says "Walking distance from the Metro." So, good 'nuf.19:32
louiseaokay. I'll let you know. And I'll keep my fingers crossed that he is available during one of our convenient times19:33
ubuntouristlouisea, I forgot to mention, we should probably set you up with a fancy e-mail address. (It can wait until we're in the same place at the same time, but nudge me about it if you think of it.)19:34
ubuntouristAnd, I guess that's it for me. Time to bug out and get food.19:34
louiseame too. and next time we're together I'll try to remember about the email19:34
