    I'm going to be spending my afternoon with a plethora of pretentious, pernicious, plastic, petty, precious, privileged privately-schooled primadonnas whose self-promoted* pure, peerless, and perfect ways quite frankly piss me off. These apparently "real" and "normal" people are so far off my weird'o'metre I don't care to discuss how much I'm going to be wanting to ring their pretty necks or simply run the other direction whimpering or screaming - depending on how bad things have been up till then. Did I mention the part where I really, really, really didn't want to be going to this party? Did I also mention the part where I really, really, really don't have a choice in the matter considering it is an engagement party for a good friend of mine, a girl I've known (and been good friends with) for well over ten years. I may not care for the rest of the company that will be attending but frankly I really am obligated to go.

    I consider you lot real people by MY definition.
    So if you lot think that you are all overrated by all means, go ahead. I think you'd be doing yourselves an injustice, but.. *shrug*

    * - pretty sure this isn't actually a real word... Couldn't think of a better one with quite the same meaning.

    Well I think I am real, I throw myself up against a wall and I hurt. Does that not make me real? :p I'm sure there are easier ways to test my realness though :confused:

    Anywho, are we happy to checking the last post in this for event updates cause I can get the first post edited if that is eaiser? If you do want the first post edited PM me the details and I shall take of it. ;)

    Well I was just making a pithy joke, but if you want to take it that way, fine. :p

    Sounds like a pretty crap night.

    I dunno, the ability to pitch insults under the radar all night has its bonuses. :p

    So have we pronounced this thread dead? Or perhaps redundant?

    The thread is always around for discussing events and gettogethers. As there's not much on the cards just now, it's quiet, but anyone can throw something out there whenever they want. That's what it's for.

    Well I'm free during the day on Saturday, but then I've got the 21st - though no doubt I should be sewing like the wind both Saturday and Sunday :p Was thinking of going to the Valley op shops actually on Saturday... [face_thinking]

    Oooh Bek, lemme know if you do end up going, I might catch a train in and meet you there :D

    Hahah well MD the main reason I want to see it is for the costumes! But hey, it looks like a good magic film! All of those double features sound good, I wouldn't have minded seeing the Kill Bill ones (as I've not yet seen them) but I'm happy with whatever.

    Wait, going where? The op shops? Sorry, concentration blah :p
    If we want to make it a definate outing then I'll be more likely to go - Saturday mornings are always so hard to catch ;)


    edit: and secondary response to MD's comment, every time I hear the phrase, "(..blahdiblah) Poppycock" I have to reenact the entire scene in my head. Every time...

    So at the risk of sounding like I'm just plain confused and simply want to know what's going on (oh, wait... :p), someone please speak to me of the Robotech marathon.

    When? Where? Who? How? Why? Etc etc.


    I've been told Saturday the 3rd at the Boon, but I just want to be sure of it. This is why we have the War Room thread, people, so everybody knows what's going down. It's a centralised place to post event details, doing away with the crosstalk and general failure to communicate that otherwise descends upon us.

    Thanks BBN, I was also a little foggy on the goings on... I know I can't make the 3rd anyway, but it's always nice to know the whole of what's going on.

    Yes TehBoon is still an option this Saturday. I will be watching the V8s on my TV until 5:30, but whenever you'd like to start we can in TehBoon's Lounge.

    I think perhaps this was the reason it was not posted about in this thread. At least be thankful you were given details about it in the first place. So, is there going to be a marathon or is it going to be a secret little meeting by personal invite only?

    Because honestly, I've had just about enough of grown adults acting like spoilt highschoolers, with their elitist groupings and secret meetings organised to exclude certain people from the group. I've heard all of the stupid excuses you can throw at me, I dealt with that all through school and I refuse to have to deal with that from grown adults. If you don't want someone to attend either tell them straight or suck it up and deal with them attending.
