So, I haven't heard from many people over email about Friday, though I
did get a bunch of verbal RSVPs at the meeting on Tuesday. So far,
Jenni's offered to bring "cookies and other desserts", Daine's offered
to bring "something hoppy" in the way of beer, Julie said she was going
to bring a bottle of wine of unspecified type, and Michelle said she was
going to bring some kind of cupcakes.
Meanwhile, I've bought sodas (1 2-liter each of Coke, Coke Zero, Diet
Coke, Sprite, and Fresca) and made sure that my liquor cabinet is
sufficiently stocked for anyone who might be drinking. I also have some
cheese (dill-and-garlic cheddar from Teeter) and crackers (Wheat Thins)
and some cheap beer (PBR).
As for geeky stuff to entertain ourselves, I've got Firefly, Serenity,
DDR Max on the PS2, two DDR mats, and a Wii with one Wiimote, and
Tristan's bringing another Wiimote for some head-to-head Wii Sports
action. (Though, if we just spend the evening making funny Mii avatars
for everybody, that'll be cool, too. :-) )
Anyway, it looks like we've got a little of everything and not too much
of anything. If there's anything else you want to have here (More food?
Different beverages?), go ahead and bring it and let me know so that I
can warn others to not bring more of whatever it is.
So, it looks like this is all coming together. See you tomorrow at 8pm!
I'll be there with booze and ready to
You should come too!
(How do you like the superfluity of exclamation marks?!!!)
