Ooh. A merge topic feature? Yah, that's neat-o.

A poll's a good idea too. My vote's in. :)

Yeah, I can bring bread, no problem. I'm dying to go to Great Harvest again! Oh how I've missed it.... ;D

I'm gonna try to make it.  That whole week is bad for me, since I have to go see my family SOME time, and Pemberly wants to be here in our own home for our first Christmas together.  I'll be back the 31st for sure, but the 28th...ouch.

However, if I don't make it, I'll host a reshowing at my house for everyone else who couldn't make it.

EUOL if you just come for the movie, I'm planning on starting it at 7:00, so if you want to skip the dinner portion, or any after-movie games, then just come for the movie. My house is about 15 minutes from yours, so hopefully won't be too much trouble to come.

And for the rest of you, I thought we'd eat at about 6:30, movie directly following. Then, if anyone wants to stay after the movie for conversation and games, they certainly can. Bring a game if you want.

Yay--a plan. Starting time sounds good. Movie good. Games and convo good. :)

Oh, and it looks like a friend of mine will be in town so I'll bring him along with too.

For my address and directions to my house, please send me an email or PM. Fell also has my address, so you can ask him too.

Nessa, how are you planning on playing the RiffTrax?  They're a MP3 and last time we were playing both the DVD and the trax on a Laptop so the two overlapped each other.
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!

I'm going to try to see if I can pipe them through my receiver simultaneously. We're testing it tonight or tomorrow. Otherwise, I dunno.

I don't suppose you could help? Give me a call: 234-9368.

Nothing like technical difficulties during the holidays! :P

Well, if it doesn't work, we could just put in a different movie.

Nessa, am I still bringing bread for turkey sandwiches?

Well, we tried piping two things through the receiver and that won't work. We could play the movie and then the MP3 off the laptop, but the sound isn't very good.

Pump the sound through a portable stereo.  I know sprig has an MP3 player and i can bring one of those portable stereos and a tape adaptor (to connect the headphone jack on the PM3 player with the tape deck on the portable stereo.)  You can get decent sound through a setup like that right?

We also have an MP3 player. That would be great if you could bring a portable stereo!

Oh, and I have two couches in the basement, but for comfort's sake, if you have bean bags or other lounge items, bring them, too.
