I find it surprising that people are missing the regular Diet Pepsi. One of the things I mentioned to my friends when I got home about the free pop, was that they even had more than just the standard selection: Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Sierra Mist, Root Beer.

I had been excited (and my friends were, too, in a vicarious kind of way) that they offered things like Diet Dr Pepper and Gatorade and a caffeine-free Diet option. To each his/her own, I guess.

I miss the Diet Pepsi. I want my caffeine without calories and enjoy the taste of "normal" soda (sue me ;).) My gerryrigged solution at HW would be to add a splash of Pepsi to my mostly full glass to get a little bit of caffeine (and sugar.)

I do that also... about 90% Diet Pepsi with a splash of Cherry Pepsi will make a decent Diet Cherry Pepsi in a pinch.

You can't see it, 'cause we're on an internet forum, but...I'm smiling. :)

I giggled from my server room and my wife heard me in the living room and yelled "You are still on Coaster Buzz today?"

I usually drink the Sierra Mist, sweet tea, Gatorade, and sometimes regular Pepsi when visiting the park, although I am more of a Coke fan. I am not fussy, though. ;) One of the best things about a trip to HW is the free soft drinks. Whatever I spend on travel expenses I always make up in the free soda, tea, and Gatorade. :)

I can't do diet drinks anymore. I used to be a Diet Coke addict until I gave up diet stuff altogether about 4-5 years ago. The last Diet Coke I had made me nauseous and gave me the worst headache ever. Ouch!

As far as HWN and CMania, I plan on going to both unless they actually fall on the same weekend. From what I heard that won't be a problem. CP has moved CMania around several times whenever a nearby Con was involved. :)

Maybe they should offer caffeinated diet gravy at the buffet.

As much as I LOVE Raven I'd have to do CM-it would be my 12th one! :)

But unless I find a job any time soon I'd better not be counting on next year's events already! :(

From what a few are saying, it sounds like I won't have to make the choice. If that's the case, I'll defiantly be doing both again.

Defiantly? I have to make it to both of them... or else! ;)

I use spell check, but it doesn't catch those mistakes. :)

He's going to both events, and just you try and stop him.
Works best if you say it with teeth clenched.
