    I'm planning a get-together for a potluck dinner and video night at my apartment in Burnsville at 7 PM on Saturday, May 19th.

    For the dinner, we could make use of the grills and picnic tables outside (weather permitting).

    Haven't decided yet on the video. Let me know if you have any suggestions, or I'll surprise you! ;)

    :_| May 19th???? I can't make it!!! :_| I'll be packing for my trip (I leave the 20th) and going to an open house for my aunt's exchange student's graduation. :_|

    I wish I could be... I be at the NEXT event, provided it's not while I'm in Europe.

    I'll be there! And I'll bring something as yet undetermined. I put my vote in for a video viewing of your recently purchased "Space Balls".

    Actaully, I would like to see the rest of the SW Holiday Special sometime. I missed Carrie Fischer sing and Bea Arthur! I could use a good laugh. You do need to bring that sometime!

    And V2K, you have to show up! I need my Vader cake!

    Well that seals it I guess. I just have to come, as I'd like to get a look at this Vader cake...and eat it too, of course! :D

    I actually would like to see the Holiday Special too, as I've only ever seen the Boba Fett cartoon. It'd also be cool to see the Muppet Show episode with Luke/Mark, 3PO, R2 and Chewie.

    I do have some tapes I'll bring along, though. There is a fan film called Star Wars: Macbeth that was made about 4 years ago which I have a VHS copy of. It's an interesting watch, so I'll bring it. I can also bring Hardware wars, which I assume everyone has seen or at least knows of it's existence. It's short, but funny.

    Anyway, that night's open for me now and I don't forsee anything blocking it, so I look forward to it!

    I think people could live their life without seeing Princess Leia sing, but the Fett cartoon *is* pretty cool, IMHO. The only *good* part of the Holiday special. The muppets episode is great too. ;)

    Guess I'll bring it to the next movie night. :D

    I'll be there, but only if the bulletin baord over my bed falls on me. Then I can just mail myself to the party.

    Name the book, folks.

    I have NEVER seen the Muppet episode with Luke (I had a rough childhood)! Femme, if you bring that, you'll make me a very :) person!

    I aslo just rented Slipstream, with MJS's hero Mark in it. Not that we may have enough time, maybe just five minutes or so.

    So what's the latest on to grill or not to grill? I guess part depends on the weather.

    Well done, Crummy. My son did a project on that book last year. They each made a Stanley out of paper and then mailed him to a relative. The relative had to mail it back and then the school put a big map of the world up with pins noting each place Stanley came back from.

    I loved that book as a kid. That and the Encyclopedia Brown series.

    Er......Why is everybody looking at me that way???? :)

    Yep, I read Flat Stanley as a kid too, just couldn't remember for sure if that was the complete title, hence the question mark.

    Actually, I used to read the Encyclopedia Brown books too.

    I'll need to doublecheck with kidling scheduling, but it looks good right now...

    Also joining us for dinner... Ashley, Amber and Autumn! Don't worry, they don't eat much

    We'll watch the videos after dinner when they go to bed... although we may want to squeaze in that Muppets video first! :D
