    It's time to celebrate Life Day with the Chicago Force!

    Please join us for food, festivities, gift exchange and Toys for Tots donating.

    Saturday, December 11 at 6 PM

    This year, the party will be in Chicago, near public transportation, at Bobafemme and Darthgoat's place. Please PM me for directions and address. I'm not foolish enough to publish it on the internet.

    Food We'll provide BBQ sammiches and chilidogs. Vegetarian fare will also be available. Please bring something to share and post what you are bringing. We don't want to repeat 500 bags of Doritos. Or do we?

    Toys for Tots Phyllis has been working hard to organize TfT drop off sites. The CF Holiday Party is the last date for Chicago Force donations. I will be taking the gifts to the MC Post (base, center,?) the following business day. Please bring a gift to help make a child's holiday a little brighter.

    Gift Exchange Bring a wrapped gift to white bantha off. Gift should be approximately $20 value. These collector club people know their business so don't try to slip something past them.

    Any questions? Please ask or email bobafemme@yahoo.com.

    Happy Holidays!

    I believe I can be counted on for a batch of cookies and perhaps a bottle of wine, too (what compliments Toll House?)

    Count me in for some Alcohol [face_dancing] (the bar I work for will be providing the licour, if you know what I mean) [face_devil]

    What I need to know is, if you guys want "Vodka, Rum or Tequila" (for Bosh's Margaritas)? 8-}

    Femme...
    right now I am still trying to figure out how to get to Naperville and Bolingbrook Graham Crackers stores the night before to pick up Toys for Tots stuff....
    get up at 5:00 am the next morning...do the restoration workday in Braidwood that morning/afternoon...
    and make it up by you at a reasonable hour....and still awake....and get up at a marginally ghastly hour the next morning for that Charity Toy Show....

    like Scarlett O'Hara once said...

    I'll think about that tomorrow...

    :D

    Destiny will agree with me, Tequila!
    I believe some deviled eggs will be making their way to the holiday party, courtesy of me.

    ooooohhhh....part of pre-party dilemma fixed...thanks Autobot!

    so.....what would you like?
    I think what I may do is make a catering order to a local joint....they have oven roasted potatoes (with garlic, olive oil and herbs) to die for....they would be probably be still hot...but a little time on the oven and they will be good to go...

    does that sound any good?

    I'll be bringing some form of dessert.

    Probably will involve chocolate.

    Hmmm, I'm PAing on a movie the weekend of the party, but I hope to make it anyway. I guess I'll have to just see what happens on that day.

    BTW Erica, you've got mail. :D

    There is no reason for ANY Star Wars fan in Chicago to miss this event. Nowhere will you find a more hardy group of Star Wars fans who know the meaning of camradarie and fellowship. Call in sick if you have to.....call in dead.....

    We Would Be Honored If You Would Join Us....

    TEQUILA!!!

    The last time we let Bosh mix the margaritas it was double rum, and double vodka (flavored and regular) and doubly sick! Yeeeuucch! Rex can handle the margarita's and daquiris, I'll come up with a good punch and something else festive. I'll probably bake something too.

    Choose Between:

    Cheese Blintzes
    Marble Cheescake
    PB&J Cookie Bars
    A Pistachio Bundt Cake (or 2 :D)

    And yes I make them all from scratch. These are just my specialties that I only make at Xmas time. I'd make a good pastry chef if it wasn't so time consuming.

    Destiny asked: Doesn't Rum make it a Daquri? TEQUILA!!!!!! [face_thinking]

    Yes, Rum makes it a Daquiri, & Tequila makes it a Margarita. But Bosh is so "DUMB" :oops: that he doesn't know the diference.

    Add to the menu:

    [face_shame_on_you] (Bosh, STAY AWAY FROM THE BOTTLES) [face_shame_on_you]
    Margaritas
    Daquris
    Apple Martinis

    I'll be there!

    I'll be bringing wit and personality. :D

    Actually I'll help Erica and play World of Warcraft.

    I'll be down playing World of Warcraft with Goat...

    Heh. I'm kidding... actually, I'll bring either Waldorf salad (my old standby) or the chili/cream cheese dip that seemed to go over so well at a previous Femme/Goat fete. It'll depend on whether there's a greater demand for side dishes or appetizers.

    I'd love to be able to get into WoW right away, but I just don't have the time or money to spend on it these days. Goat must promise to let a few of us tool around with his character at the holiday party tho.

    I don't really have the time either. I'll play at a slow pace for now. You lvl very fast compared to other MMORPG games so its no big deal.

    You can each create a character if you want. You can make 50 per account. I think I can spare a char or two. lol

    If you get hooked though, its not my fault. Blame Blizzard!

    If anyone gets too drunk and starts breaking toys or putting their gum on my coffee table, you'll get the boot.

    Sounds like a great party brewing... In fact, I miss those MidWest parties. :(

    Have a great time, and beware the wrath of Femme ;) [face_devil]

    Well, darn. Looks like I'm not coming.

    Turns out the movie I'm working on that day starts filming much later than I had previously thought and I'll be working 'til midnight or later. :(

    Of course, this just means I'll whine for you to put up pics even faster, Haz.
