    Ummm... the pool isn't the kind you can really swim in. Although she is small so it may work.

    Robert, if you'd rather have me buy more ribs rather than bring burgers let me know. We have a good butcher by my house, so if it's ribs specify the type you prefer.

    The thing is, ribs are sometimes marinated ahead of time - so this might be something that Robert preps at home before the party and then brings them to bbq. In that case, me bringing more ribs won't help.

    Yep kathy, I put a rub on them the night before and slow cook them for several hours after a day. So I'd be marinating on Friday, cooking on Saturday. Marinating Chicken on Saturday, cooking on Sunday.

    I figured (my husband makes ribs sometimes).

    So - if I'm reading Eva correctly I still should not bother with Hamburgers because everyone just wants ribs and chicken. I don't want to waste money and time on all that stuff if it won't be needed.

    I'm heading out of town for a few days. So if by Friday night someone can kind of give me a better idea if I should do Eva's platter idea (cheese, meats, crackers) please let me know. Just put me down for something and I'll get it. Just don't want to repeat what someone else is already bringing.

    - Kathy

    Here are some things off the top of my head that haven't been mentioned to bring yet: Christmas candies (Hershey's kisses, etc.), a giant bag of tortilla chips and dip/salsa (the five-layer dip is good), a ham, mashed potatoes, and for alcoholic drinks, the Smirnoff Ice multi-pack with different flavors. Going back to the rib thing, maybe burgers can be an alternative to ribs and chicken. The more choices, the better. I know there are several people here that like to eat! ;) And they are easy to cook. Any thoughts?

    Aww...I'm gonna miss Robert's famous ribs! :(
    Hope you guys enjoy your party. The Rogues will be feasting this weekend also.
    We'll raise a glass of Eggnog to seeing you all at WonderCon next year!

    Here's an idea...Hey jawbreaker Mark,why don't you bring an acoustic guitar to this event as well? It'll sooooo add to some cheesy holiday spirit! Besides, this'll be a chance for us to hear you peform live. [face_dancing] [face_mischief] Just as long as we don't sing the "Life Day" song from the Holiday Special. [face_thinking]

    Even better, I talked to Mark and he wants to bring the Guitar Hero game for PS2 to the party so you can try to play yourself and keep up with the likes of Brian May et al.

    But as far as life day is concerned, there will be abosolutely no showing of the Star Wars Holiday Special in any shap or form.

    If anyone sees that ROTS 3-flavor popcorn tin at Toys R Us, that would be something good tp bring as well!

    Hey Charles, we have been asking everyone to kick in $5 toward the rental fee of the space. You can always give that to me on Sunday. If you want to also bring something that would be awsome. Drinks might be a good thing, maybe soda or juice for the non drunks.
    I'm going to be at Serramonte Saturday night so I can check Toys R Us for the popcorn. I'm really looking forward to this party.

    Rach, I already checked TRU for the popcorn, but they're out. But Erick told me that Target has them too.

    BTW, does anyone have a label maker, with white or clear tape? If so, could you bring that to the party? Thanks.

    I have a label maker. And I think I have clear tape for it. I know I'm out of white tape for sure, though.

    Did anyone see Conan O'brien lastnight? They had that guy doing the One Man Star Wars Show on. He was hilarious. I can bring it to the party.

    ^ I know, it was hilarious. My bro, Erick, and I saw him do the whole thing at Comic-Con 2004. I did tape it as well, maybe I'll save it on a DVD+RW. Still, it does not beat Star Wars in 30 Minutes. [face_laugh]

    I just finished the encoding on How the Sith Stole Christmas. And I'll be bringing in ADigitalMan's re-edit of Episode III plus of course Nightmare Before Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Robot Chicken.
