    When are we going to leave the firehouse by? 10's really early especially for Hothgirl coming from almost 4 hrs away. She's meeting at my house in rochester & then We're coming together from my house. For us to be at the firehouse by 10 she would probably have to leave about 5 am that's a LONG day. If I can make her not have to leave so early, I'm sure that would be a good thing.

    its the same time we met last year. We all meet at 10 and change into our costumes and drive down in one or two cars since there is virtually no parking. We have to be at the parade route by a certain time in order to get in our positions. However we are towards the end of the parade and may not have to arrive till after 12. This is our third year in a row and our time has always been pretty good.

    The bad news is I havent heard back from the parade committee on our position. I left 2 voice mails today and yesterday. I am calling her in the morning again.
    As far as Im concerned we can show up at the same corner we did last year and it shouldnt be a problem. LOL

    At any rate check the boards early am for updates. If everyone would liekt o show up at 11 instead of 10 thats fine however not too many people check the boards tonight and may not see the time change.

    Worse comes to worse and we dont get a poistion we march last LOL
    *sighs*

    Anyways, see everyone tomorrow Im off to watch a movie!

    (this is Raef, my compy has a virus [at least...okay, so maybe 2....or 20.....or 200.....] so I'm here)

    Dad's going to be bringing muffins. I just finished making the Mac and cheese, it's in a foil pan covered in saran wrap so it can be reheated easy. Just have to add milk or water to it when it that happens so it doesn't dry out.

    We'll bring some cards or something to play. Maybe jenga? We could always point and laugh at Drogon for entertainment ;) (I just asked him what to bring for fun...he goes, "Me!") We also have Star Wars monopoly, and a Star Wars interactive board game. Dunno if we'll bring those or not, they're Arjuna's and heck knows if we'll remember them. roffle.

    Oh! And strawbary, if there are any large SCJ shirts, can you bring one? I still don't have one, LOL. They cost 10 bucks, right?


    Slightly OT, I'm also trying to get some friends to join the club. One or two showed some interest but no dice as to actual joining ;) I'll bribe them somehow...LMAO. Of course, this isn't the best time to ask. "Hey, would you like to join a club where you can freeze your 'specials' off in a parade while dressed up in clothes that usually aren't warm while avoiding drunks with beer that ruin said costume?" ;)

    I made up some brownies with mint chocolate chips. And some Apple Cinnamon muffins (although those might get eaten for breakfast...

    So it looks like we have about a dozen people based on posters in this thread.

    -KnightShade- & son (Cameramen)
    T_StarFlyer (Jedi)

    Did you guys have a banner for the parade? We were just wondering if we should pack our Rebellion one with us or not.

    Aww....that sucks about your grandpa. v.v :'(


    But we had fun today :) It was nice marching and a fun after party. Poker was alright but I don't see what's so entertaining about it...o_O Thanks for teaching me though :)

    The Incredibles was amusing. "You married Elasticgirl? And[...]?!" LOL.

    Thanks Russ for the signs for the SCJ, and Dave for keeping us away from the crazy drunks. And thanks Strawbary for getting everything ready when we were done marching!

    All in all it was a great time, I think I enjoyed it more this year because I wasn't getting FROSTBITE in my feet, roffle.

    And because I had someone yell at me I had no life. I think THAT made my day.

    Although I didn't get beaded... *sadness* ...you know, it's like getting 'leied' only with beads. I'm sad I didn't get, er, leied.

    Hope everyone enjotyed the mac and cheese!

    :D

    I had a great time seeing everyone today. I am sorry I couldnt march but glad everyone enjoyed themselves today and had some hot food ;)

    We need to get together more often just for giggles ;)

    Special thanks to everyone outside of syracuse who traveled to get here , Im glad we had warm weather at least.

    Jen - Someone yelled at you for not having a life? I missed that story....... dang.......

    As strange as the green mac and cheese is everyone loves it and its always a big hit! Thanks for bringing that! :)

    Thanks to everyone again who helped with the parade and food. Without everyones help big and small it wouldnt have been a successful day!

    Sounds like it was a success. Everyone had a good time. Great that you had decent weather considering the time of year. Sorry I missed it. Hopefully all of you will be able to attend the Lilac Parade, and hopefully I will as well.

    This is Raef. Compy is still on the fritz so I'm stealing dad's again ;)

    "Jen - Someone yelled at you for not having a life? I missed that story....... dang......."

    Yeah. Some lady leaned over the rails and yelled "Get a life!". Me being me, I was thinking 'woo!' and gave her the 'rock on sign' ;)


    "Hey Maybe for the lilac Parade we can make purple mac & cheese"

    It would probably look more brown than purple. have you ever seen that purple catsup? :eek: that stuff does not look purple ;)

    Photos are now up on the Rochester Fandom galleries.

    It was tough narrowing down over 360 pictures to just 71 shots. If there is a picture that you remember seeing that's not there, let me know and I'll look for it. Along the same lines, if there is a pic I posted that you'd rather not be - let me know and I'll take it down.
