    Greetings Fellow Fans,

    Don't forget, we will be ice skating (weather permitting) on Saturday, February 26th after the Book Club luncheon. We'll be at Millennium Park.

    We had postponed the event from January partially due to a conflict in times/dates with the costume club, but mostly due to the fact that it wasn't going to get over 8 degrees that weekend. More details as we get closer.


    Bosh

    How did it go? I've been stuck in bed for 3 days coughing up lung-butter, and I didn't think ice skating was a good way to cure that, otherwise I would have been there.

    Lots of fun. About half of us skated, and half of us laughed at the other half when they fell down. Between the Book Club & Skating we had about 20 people altogether I think. Then seven or eight of us went on a Jedi Pub Crawl on Rush Street (hosted by Rex who ended up getting us a 50% discount on our food & booze at P.J. Clarke's.)

    Bosh

    Pictures were taken... I'll send you mine ASAP, so you can post them sometime in 2007, Haz. ;) I tried to get some .avi footage, too, but when I played them back on my computer they were running super-fast, even when I turned playback to the slow setting. So that's a bust; I must figure out why that happened.

    Yeah, I only fell once, so that's a victory in my book, Peaches' attempts at getting it to happen again notwithstanding. But very glad I went, A good time was had by all, except maybe Phil, the ice likes him a bit too much! :p Sorry I missed the pub crawl but in this group we're never missing for opportunities for that. Between Rex and me there ARE ALWAYS MORE! The whole day was a blast!

    Arrggghhhh - I KNEW I was forgetting something this weekend! Ah well, I wouldn't have been much fun anyway, since it sounds like I had a milder version of Haz's condition. Glad to hear everyone had a good time, though.

    mmmm.... lung butter.....
