    Sorry not to make this event,

    but wish to post on this thread my Holiday wishes for
    the entire SBFF family:)


    I was at the Chicago Force "life day" party, and often
    found myself talking about the greaty fans in SBFF.

    The CF party started with a book club meeting, and then
    watched the Star Wars Holiday special
    (I think this is the 30 anniversay)

    and now, I must get a copy of this:-B

    There was also a Star Wars grab-bag exchange of presents,

    I got Carrie Fisher's new book, Wishful Drinking"

    The guy hosting the party also invited some friends of his
    from around his area. They were pretty cool, and it was fun
    for them to mention once in a while, that they had no idea
    what the rest of us were talking about.

    anyway, I also could not attend the party downstate with
    the Hoosier Alliance and others.

    So, I take this opportunity to post

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you all, and hope you have
    a fantastic get-together.

    Will miss seeing you on this trip, MT. Best wishes to you and yours for the holidays. My next planned visit to the area will likely be in May, so hopefully our paths can cross again at that time.

    Mark your calendar now. [face_laugh]

    Sounds good.

    What's on the agenda?

    (Playing CC? Do I need to bring a computer?)

    I vote for board games if anybody's got a good one. Otherwise I will bring a DVD of the Star Wars Holiday Special.

    [face_dancing]


    Who's in...by my count it is shaping up to be a Pizza King reunion (CarboniteHan, ToneLoc, Xmaveric, TAUNTAUN_WE) + BaseDeltaZero and garbagge59. Six total?

    Oh, I am so jealous:_|

    which version (copy) of the Holiday Special do you have, and how can I get one:)


    by the way, this is the 30-year anniversary of that special. When we viewed it in Chicago,
    it was like Mystery Science Theater, with an endless array of witty chatter. I LMAO[face_laugh]

    Whoa! No need to threaten. We're all friends here, OKay? Good. Good.

    We can play board games. We all like board games. Don't we fellas? Yeah. So, no need to bring some silly DVD, OKay? Alright. Good.

    LOL! Alright, we'll see how you guys play your cards the rest of this week. I may still bring it, just as backup.

    Whatsa meesa thinking? The other thread has the perfect suggestion for what we should do - Mortal Kombat for our figures (or at least, Figure Club). I will bring my vinyl caped Jawa to open.

    Board games are good, I wouldn't recommend RISK as it will take all night to play one game.

    Is anyone interested in a Conquer Club game night on the 26th?

    I think BDZ is forgetting how busy the holidays are, we most likely won't be home on the 26th.

    That's OKay. He can set it up, we'll all agree to participate, and then no one will show. See. All good.

    We could all bring laptops and have a CC lan party. I have some extras if others don't have laptops.

    The bowel movements were at the last party. No need for one this time.

    Are we still on for tomorrow night? Sounds like it might be crappy weather.

    We just barely made it here last night. Cold but clear all the way from SD to Chicago, and even to Michigan City (via CoachUSA). After that, it was white-knuckle time into Michigan. Following the snowplow helped....


    I will be watching the weather tomorrow in case I am stuck here in the sticks and can't make it to the "big city" of South Bend. Hopefully it doesn't come to that, just wanted to check in.

    yes, we are still on for tonight. Hopefully, the weather will be good.

    We can order pizza when everyone gets here.

    Bring your own drinks if you like.

    Like TW said, pay attention to the weather report.

    if it gets nasty and then we should reschedule for next time.

    I'm planning on coming right now, unless the weather turns worse. ToneLoc, can you please PM me your phone number, in case this becomes a last-minute decision for me, or in case I run into any trouble en route?

    Hope to see you guys tonight, but certainly don't want anyone taking any unnecessary chances given the weather.

    I'll probably not be making it tonight. It's over a 30-minute drive to get there in good weather. If I came, I'd have to turn right back around to make it home in time to go to bed to be functional for work tomorrow.
