    Yeah, that's not on; it's hard enough to air this place out when the oldies next door leave their bore water on all day!

    Well, I know Soneil has a bunch of fan films on disc, we could watch some of those if he'd like to bring them, and I have a collection of DVD's of modest size but great quality! Videos are an option as well, hell I won't even rule out shadow puppetry! I'm also eager to get my other friend in here and try out some of his VCD's.

    It should be a fine little event, I'll be very happy to see you all there!

    I'm calling the start time 6:30pm, Dec. 15. Does everybody have the address, and the number in case you need directions? Heck, I'll just leave them here:

    38A Woodrow Ave., Yokine (08) 9375 7381

    I don't yet know exactly where everyone lives, so it's hard to give proper directions until then, but the place isn't too hard to find, there are two primary schools across the street if that helps.

    I have a thumb sized scar on my forhead. All us married guys have it. Check Pinback next time you see him. I'm sure he's got one too.

    Yeah I manage to get that, I can bring it on CD if you like. In fact I'll just bring my whole collection. I have 3 cds full. How many you have soniel?

    We must have downloaded the same stuff. I've got 3 cds too. I think the empire strikes back yard would be a contender for 'silliest ending'. Pretty funny. Thumb Wars is my favourite though. I'll bring that again for those who weren't at the last meet.

    Just a note on parking; our new neighbor took up residence over the weekend, and he and his mates have combies going in and out of the driveway at all hours of the day and night (this in itself is another story entirely), so I'm not sure what kind of room we're going to have. There should be enough room on our side for three cars, maybe four if somebody parks on the footpath like LOADEDDOG did last time. If space turns out to be cramped, there's a nice big carpark across the street at the primary school, I don't think you'd get in any trouble at all for parking there.

    Unless you happen to have a sandcrawler. I don't think anyone would argue with stinkyjawa about parking places.

    Going grocery shopping tomorrow night; anybody got any requests?

    Within reason, of course. *g*

    MMs, Coke, Icecream.

    Like us to bring some stuff to add to what you've got. Drinks or anything?

    Hmmmm, tough call. Maybe just a bottle of drink, I thought we might pick up a cube like last time as well.

    We just picked up some ice blocks, but on a hot sunny day, nothing beats an ice cream float (I think you folks call ém Spiders); too bad they don't seem to have root beer over here, you're seriously missing out.

    Well I can bring a bottle of something or some chippies to munch on. I'll bring my fan film cds as well and if we are going to have a dvd player there, I own The Matrix, The Mummy, Braveheart and Gladitors. But I think we should have plenty of stuff to watch, see how we go I guess!!

    I appreciate that SK, but we bought our player in the States, so it only plays Region 1 discs; we are looking into a modification that won't leave our current collection useless, it's a tricky proposition.

    Here's another thing; I probably should've brought this up earlier, but would anybody mind chipping $5 towards pizza? I've got a voucher that'll get us three large pizzas, garlic bread and a bottle of drink for $26.95 (that totals $175 with GST; kidding!), plus we'll have nachos and nibblies on hand while we wait for delivery. I hope I'm not springing this on ya?

    You can actually get root beer if you look hard. Check some of the little asian stores and markets. A lot of them get cans of A&W from Indonesia.

    Thanks to all who joined us Friday night; as usual, things were kinda half-assed, but I do hope those of you who were there had a good time, and got enough to eat and drink. Also hope you enjoyed our evening's entertainment, I know it was... um, eclectic.

    I won't complain about the turnout (I'll leave that to Soneil), I'm just happy if I manage to show up! It'd be nice to see more people at the TPM night, and really, how can you resist any occasion to sit on blankets?

    That's what I should do at our next party; have blankets all over the floor! I'll have to beat people off the porch with a stick! Hey, come on over and I'll beat ya with a stick anyway, c'mon, it'll be fun!

    Now for my bit.

    Where were the rest of you slackers?
    Pinback, SoulKrusher, Grizzly, Princess Lego & I had a good time. Shame on the others (some had excuses but...). You missed out on seeing lots of short films, including a rather odd one about a rather odd postman (after you left SK).
