    Hans, check a map. Bosh is just a couple of minutes away from me, the other end of the world from you.

    With all the rain this week people, don't forget your Off bug spray. Or we could just have Dartha and Bosh jello wrestle in the kiddie pool. I'm sure the smell of that would keep the bugs at bay. (and with that cannonball...he jumps into the game)

    I'm REALLY going to try for the ESB showing, since I'm on vacation that week.

    I'll bring an innertube in case it's still raining by then.

    A replacement LD player arrived today and appears to be working correctly. It even has a remote control! Heckuva lot of EMF being pumped out of the outputs, though. Makes my stereo receiver go all wonky.

    So should we change Friday's movie to "Passage to India"? Who's with me?

    I am so there, I spoke to a friend of mine who is also a Chef, and he will be hooking me up with some Leon?s Jumbo Hot dogs. I will also bring some Mushroom salad, Coleslaw salad and some Burgers with the trimmings like kosher pickles, Onions tomatoes and cheese! Let me know if you guys want anything, I can swing by my friends place and get something.

    One thing to note. I only have one table. That table will have the projector, receiver & LD player on it. So, this will be picnic style. I also don't have kitchen cabinets and counters. Well, I do, but most of them are in boxes or in various states of construction in my kitchen and living-room. So if you are going to bring potluck keep in mind there's not a lot of surface-space upon which to put it.


    I'm pretty hyped up about this. This is actually the first time I can remember actually watching A New Hope with anyone in a long time. It's surprising that Chicago Force hasn't gotten together to watch the OT at least once in the past 5 years. I guess it's one of those things we take for granted. And it's hard to make "mundanes" sit through an entire viewing of Star Wars it seems.

    OK, I now have a big table back there for whatever food needs there be. I also tested the gas grill. Fired right up. You can bring yer meat, or if you like there is an awesome produce mart half a block up the street, you can get all the shrimp, meat n' vegetables you'd ever want to grill up for pretty cheap.

    Here's tomorrows Drive In Movie Forcast:

    7 PM Sunny 57°
    8 PM Sunny 54°
    9 PM Clear 51°
    10 PM Clear 49°
    11 PM Clear 47°

    Prolly wanna bring a sweater for after dark.

    I just got back from the drive in movie! Had a blast and had fun being the official Burger King! But seriously I had a wonderful time and I want to thank Bosh, Hazmat, and Destiny Froste for a wonderful time and the ride I got from DF. Can?t wait for next one, I?ll bring the more food! It was really nice to meet you Schph_Gochi and Amber_eyes! Had fun swearing at the screen and I got all choked up when Porkins bit the dust! So long Dack!

    The Drive-In was a Phenomenal success. I had a great time, it was great to meet a few more people and put some faces with the names. Pub-time was awesome, I haven't laughed that hard in a looong time. It was a blast to egg you on Exec, and now that I know that it's soo easy to do......And nope, DF I think it would take far more than you're prepared for to scare me off. Good times Bosh! Can't wait to see what the ESB one will be like.

    Very, very nice to meet you Executor....I now can put a face to the name as we bump into each other in cyberspace on the boards in the very weeee hours of the morning...

    would have loved to join you guys at the bar...however...I had been up since 3:00 am......going into a warm room would have made the eyes heavy...

    can't wait till the next one!

    Thanks to everyone who pitched in to make last night such a success. Especially Hans "The_Executor" for not only bringing a ton of food, but manning the grill for everyone.
    Thanks to everyone else who brought food.
    Thanks to Dex for bringing booze!
    Thanks to Hazmatt for bringing the LD player!

    ESB is gonna rock!
