sounds like fun what else would we do there?
Eat, chat, game, watch movies, eat and chat some more.
I'm in favor though I'm not sure if I can come yet...if I can get home before dark then my parents probably wouldn't have much of a problem with it...
My only problem is finding something for the White Wookiee...I'm broke.
It doesn't have to be new, for a white wookie you just pull any old junk you can find and re-gift it.
The party will start around 11-12, you can leave whenever you like so if you wanna leave after a few hours of hanging out that's fine, stay for 5 mins, 5 hours, you'll always have a good time with the IEFF!!
Actually, the party will start around noon or later. It's said to be a really slow parade and not scheduled to be over until noon.
Give it up on the "white wookie". That just sounds corny and like it should be made of white chocolate. I don't remember who suggested it, but I liked the idea of "white tauntaun".
Anyway, the gift exchange is something for fun, not a serious thing. We're doing the stealing game with it. So some old, cheesy thing would be great fun!
When you see the giant white wookie you'll take that back.
Will it be made out of Swiss or Provolone?
He'll be eight feet tall and have fur of white.
Have fun with that!
The gift game is still not called a "White Wookie" exchange.
See, that's what you get for missing a meeting.
The white wookie will walk into the party and you let the bantha die a quiet death.
Huh! Cool! *rummages around stuff* Hmm...I have a couple things I'm willing to part with. And you get to steal? OOOH! I've played this before! At a homeschooling group a few years back, I went to a Christmas party and one of the gifts was a crocheted poodle. Funny gift. Then the next year, guess what one of the gifts was?
A crocheted poodle. Everyone thought it was great and called it 'Return of the Poodle'.
Hmm, I need to plan on cooking something...can't cook much, but I can make pretty good baked stuff. Anybody bringing banana nut bread or snickerdoodles?
And one more question...how do I get there? (assuming my parents are okay with it)
Sweet, I should find out this weekend if I can make it to your party. If I don't have to be at work till 5 or 6, I'll definitely be there!!! I'll keep you guys posted. I already got some ideas for my white wookie contribution...
Well, I can safely say that I'll be at the party.
Okay, not safely, but without any obvious danger...
do we have a list of what everyone is bringing???

Hey Delta, when I talked to your dad the other day, he mentioned wanting to come to one of our gatherings. Does he know about the Christmas party and can he make it?
The Christmas party is a week from today. Is anybody else joining the gift grab? Also, don't forget to write down what you're bringing to eat so we can see what we still need.
White Bantha Gift Exchange

Quiz Master is Darthsuperbatpooh. As he and I have the quiz prepared we'll be excluded from it. We dug one up that we created back in June! Bring a pencil.
Regarding the quiz, do you two need little prized or anything else?
i'm not sure...but i will bring a crap prize...
Okay, you can sign me up for the white wookie/tauntaun/whatever furry animal you might be calling it exchange. Sign me up for two, one for me and one for my husband.
Aw drat, I don't think I can go...
See, Saturdays are laundry days for us. We usually do it in the morning but my Dad said we'll have to do it in the afternoon 'cause of the parade.
I really want to come but I don't want to bail on my family...
How about either a green salad (bags of salad mix will do) or veggie tray ?
That I can do. How's Caesar sound?
Since it's a Saturday, no. He can't get time off on such short notice two times in a row. (He did that a week ago.)
Bummer! You didn't mention if you're coming to either event on Saturday.
