    I'll be there. I've been kind of a social heel lately and have hardly made time for anyone but me. Lifeday seems like the best time to see all of SWAP.

    Not many folks have RSVP about this. If we want to have this, we need to know very soon that people are coming.

    I will be there. A few other members of the Trek group expressed interest in coming as well. Nobody is really thinking much beyond Xmas st this point.

    I plan on attending. I got a few people that might like to come from the trek group. They need to know how much it will cost per person. I really wish I could give you a better head count right now.

    Its covered dish, so the main contribution will be bringing something to eat. (side dishes, main dishes.) Also , bring a wrapped 'dollar store' present for one of our games. (the sillier the better)

    A couple of dollars to cover cost of decorations/favors would also be spiffy.

    Sorry guys.. I forgot all about this for one thing but we won't be able to make it regardless for two reasons.
    #1 ... there is no way Chris's mom would be willing to babysit a 3 week old and a 4 year old .. check here for pics :) http://www.flickr.com/photos/21142735@N05/
    #2 we're gonna be broke :( stinkin $52 ems tax that the city will undoubtedly take out of Chris's paycheck since it's the first one of the year. It would be nice if they broke it up and took $1 a week or something so it didn't hurt so bad but they don't care about that, they just want their money.
    I will be so glad when he no longer works in Pittsburgh and we don't have that extra tax the first pay of each year.

    Cute pictures! Do try to get away occasionally, for your own good.

    You don't have to be in Pittsburgh to get socked with that tax. In little old New Castle, where I work at my choir job, I get hit with it, too. You're supposed to be exempt if you make less than $12,000, but they somehow are able to take ALL of your income into account - not just what you make in the city.

    Meanwhile, for my main job, it's still just $10 (I could get that much back since I'm being taxed twice, but somehow, it doesn't seem worth the effort.).

    I'm gonna stop at KFC and get a couple buckets of chicken. Whatever $20 will get me. I just paid off my car and house insurance this month so I'm a bit low on cash.

    Hmm. Are you familiar with what happens to SWAP members when our cars are finally paid for?

    I'm aware what happened to Bonnie's car. Are there other SWAP auto tragedies I don't know about?

    I wasn't the only person to have a major car catastrophe last year. Zerocool had problems, and TRADMIC and Superchill seem to be very cursed lately.
