    I love Fluxx, but I almost rage-killed all of my Columbus friends when I tried to explain the game to them while they were drinking. They do better at, say, Pictionary. I think ICHQ is a safer place for Fluxx.

    Update: I have no solid plans for this weekend yet. Might be bringing a friend, might not be coming at all. Hopefully it all works out.

    Costume(s) ready.

    Now if people would start staggering Halloween parties, I'd be set. Not sure how I'm going to hit both my houses and ICOK. Party bus between the two?

    Amen. I have been invited to at least 6 different parties, many of them with overlapping guest lists. Why not spread those bitches out?

    I hear that CB and Betsy intelligently decided to hold their Halloween party early in October. Sounds like a good plan to me.

    Oh hey, this is next week right? About time I book my flight:

    Southwest airlines:
    Arrival: Wed Oct 26 12:10AM
    Departure: Mon Oct 31 6:55AM

    Basically, you'll just want to drop me off at DTW Sunday night and I'll crash there. No sense making one of you get up at 5AM on a Monday.

    Yes, but because we did that, no one came in costume, so really it was just a party in October.

    Would anyone be interested in going to The DAMNED Show while you're here? There are three shows from Oct 27-29. The aerial acrobat I am dating is performing in this show.

    It wasn't even particularly early in October, it was the middle weekend of the month. Only a few years ago that was the only weekend that any of my friends were free to come to my party, and they all still knew that Halloween party entailed costumes.

    Just workin' the sweet talkin' magic over here to great success. It was kind of like this:

    Cherplunka - Whisky and boardgames
    Cola - Ponies and ponies.

    So Spencer - this pretty much seals it that the four of us (at least) need to do LoL costumes. Blood Pool must be a reality.

    Dude, I saw some clips of me as Abe Lincoln a few days ago while Anne/Prag/Linc were in town. I forgot how awesome that one was, and how funny it was that my hat kept hitting the ceiling fan.

    Bandrik - it's too expected, really. Plus..... I honestly don't think I could do it.

    BTW - updated main poast with an attendee list. There's going to be, like, 30. This is awesome.

    Yeah, yeah, whatever. That's the same story I heard when I said you should go as a Na'vi from Avatar.

    It's probably because you don't want to have to wear a tail. I get it. It's cool. We still love you.

    Besides, you're too tall to be a pony. Maybe if the show was called My Little Giraffe, it would be more your style... Mr. Longshadow. :p

    Ok, it looks like I'm coming but without a +1, so hopefully I can find room at ICHQ somewhere. Most likely just for Saturday. I have a sleeping bag, so long as I can find one body-sized patch of floor somewhere, I'll be good (you air mattress people are weak).
