I couldn't make the bookclub, but might be able to participate in the parade instead.
[color=660099]I could make it at the later time.[/color]
Wait, I didn't say that right. If the bookclub is later, I would not be able to make it. If the bookclub is later, I will participate in the parade. If the bookclub is same time, I would be willing to meet somewhere to watch the parade and then go to bookclub at 1pm.
I think she means that she has to leave at like 2 pm... so if book club is moved to 2 pm or later, she'll do the parade. If book club is left at 1 pm, she'll watch the parade for a bit, then go to book club.
Yes! Thanks Jurist!
In order to give people a chance to attend the parade and related festivities, I'm going to move book club to 4 p.m. with dinner at Bennigan's at 6 p.m. I'm going to give the bookstore a call. I am sorry you won't be able to make the new time, Carrie.
No problem, life sometimes gets in the way of fun.
You could always start the book club at the usual time & run long. Then those at the meeting can look out the window & watch the rest of us walk by. lol
I just wanted to say that I had a great time as always. You guys are such a great group to hang out with. I am really bummed that I couldn't go with you to Benningans. Looking forward to your poll Phil.
See most of you next month in Schaumburg, or at the latest, December in Chicago.
Sorry I missed it... I had a date. Went to catch a movie with a lady friend....
where are your priorities!
I think he just didn't want to buy drinks for the birthday girls.
I have been away from the Book Club for a bit. What is the next book at the B&N in Schaumburg? Hopefully, Liam will be cooperative in attending this time.
I think Thom owes the birthday girls drinks next time.[/color]
Lando's not a trilogy, he's a man, baby.
I like all of you, but there are other things in life besides Star Wars.
A drink for the birthday girls, though, is possible....
Well, crap, I suppose I should start reading these, eh?
*grumbles* Now I'll have to find a library that still has these old books.
Sithman.....if you can't find what you are looking for....I can mail you my copy of the Lando Trilogy.......as long as you return it to me....
send me a pm if you can't find it.....or I am pretty sure the book (all three stories are in one book) is still for sale...or can be ordered at Borders...
As I was doing some research tonight for my Civics class, I made an interesting discovery:
The author of our November selections ran for president of the United States in 2000! Yes, L. Neil Smith, author of the Lando "he's not a system, he's a man" Calrissian Adventures, has been a longtime member of the Libertarian Party, and was only the ballot in 2000 (though only in his home state of Arizona). And he may be on the ballot next year too.
OK, I'm certainly not making any type of political statement or endorsement here. I just found it rather curious.
I'll be 18 next year. Sign me up for this dude.
(It beats getting into a political argument with Dan. )
I'll be 18 next year.
Heaven help us.
I'd be more worried about turning 38 next year, than 18.
//whacks Sithman over the head with a mallet
Oh, BTW, I checked and he got 5,775 votes.
Smith, not Sithy.
Aww man . . .
I wish I hadn't read that. I hope it doesn't make me hate the book.
It's still cool info, though.
