I thought we said $15-$20 gift. I'll need to go look at the minutes again for clarification!
Yep, it's a gift that you would want to get.
maybe i should buy a bantha and paint it white, you know it is hard to buy a gift seeing as we have all those collectors in the group they might be too jaded about the gifts.
Clarification: We used to call stuff you want to get rid of white elephant gifts. We buy gifts (Star Wars related) that we would like to get ourselves, or maybe that we already have.
JD, please check the minutes. I could not remember if we decided on the $10 - $15 range or the $15 - $20 range. I know we bantered back and forth on it.
I checked, and it is $10 minimum / $15 maximum gift.
Boo for me, since I totally overspent then, and I'll be taking my gift back for one that will not be so great. Bummer for whoever would have gotten my cool Sith Infiltrator toy. I guess instead it'll be a Yoda ornament.
I don't think the world will end if a gift is a little over the $20. If anything it might spice up the gift exchange
I really dont care about the gift part, as a bonus i may actually get to take my gift back home with me(i do like it ever so much).
That's why this one is called a white bantha gift trade.
I can attend the party provided if I can crash at one of the other group member's house (since I would be coming by bus from Woodland/Davis). Unless someone happens to be coming from the Woodland/Davis area then I can go and come back with them.
Actually, Jedidoria, you come out from Vacaville area which goes right by Davis. Would you be able to give me a ride if I met you guys (is your husband and/or kids going?) somewhere there? I'll be more than willing to contribute money for gas. Actually, I would moreso need a ride back to Davis, so if picking me up would be an inconvenience, a ride back with you guys would be great enough.
Aunt Beru, I may be able to help with the decorating; I'll have to see as I don't have my calendar with me at the moment. I'll let you know by this weekend.
Ha! This post makes me chuckle. Uh, no, JDN, I won't be able to give you a ride. The husband is actually a soon-to-be-EX-husband and my kids won't be joining me for this event. Maybe another time.
PM me next time.
No, TJ, Silly, it's not a burn...just a clarification!!!!!
Yeah a burn would be to bring up TJ's fried zuchini at Mels.
but is that a burn on him or us for having seen it?
I'm so sad I missed that fun. You guys will be talking about it forever.
Did TJ actually eat the offending zuchini?
...what happened in Mel's that day should've STAYED in Mel's that day. But then again, the lot of'em are just covering up for their own insecurities...
unles my name is Devine i aint covering up no insecurites.
And yes TJ consumed the offending stix.
Obviously I missed out on more than a meal with the group...
Ehemm .... hmmmm???
Yes, let me clerify this ... it DID look like a freshly laid log of poo. And yes, TJ DID digest it and if I would have had my camera ready, I would be able to show proof at this very moment. And YES, I would take this opportunity to make fun of TJ if I "had" the pic.
But alas, I am building a couple of DVDs for the Christmas party as I speak ... and yes, it will be "funny" to all.
Oh, so what TJ ate at Mels looked like poop?
Jedidoria..................chicken & C3PO fixins
Marric_Korde...............C3PO main ingredients
Zam13 & DarthDikum.........wings or honey chicken nuggets
AuntBeruLars...............paper plates, napkins, plastic tableware
Nasus Sivad................potato salad
Quinlan_Vos_1 and guest
Lord_Darth_Vader...........chips and famous dip
JediDarkKnight(maybe)......cookies or dessert
At this point we stand at 16 people. Bith Lord? Others?
I am PMing the directions this weekend to those who are confirmed and active members.
Don't forget to bring drinks, especially if you are not participating in the C3PO fest.
I will have the key by noon (hopefully), so if anyone has extra decorations to bring for the day, or wants to help decorate, please PM me with a time you are available.
