This is just a reminder to all the local-ish Star Trek lovelies on my list here:Next Saturday, the 19th of March, is the date of our next USS Macchiato party!
The crew will be converging on the Captain's Quarters (my house) for an afternoon and evening of fun! The kicker on this whole event? Our First Officer is back in town! Anticipate the following:
- Pot luck dinner. I'll be making my (in)famous chili. Bring something to share!
- DS9 episodes, plus whatever else we decide to watch.
- Green people. I bought extra high-grade body color, and will happily turn people into Orions.
- Bourbon. Really good bourbon.
Also, I've completely finished turning my basement into a proper party room. Carpet, comfy futons, central heating that actually covers the basement, and the television is downstairs. We have enough space for the entire crew to sack out on cushy futons while watching episodes and movies now! The upstairs living room will be non-TV socializing space. Plus, with a total of four futons and an air mattress in the house, anyone who wants to stay over will have plenty of sleeping space.PLEASE RSVP HERE.NOTE:
Also, as most of you know, even though mizuno_caitlin
is here in the USA right now, she's made her home in Japan. We're grateful that she's safe, but this is a reminder of how small the world is, and how we really do need to take care of each other. I'm going to be putting a coffee can for donations near the door. I know that not everyone in the crew has a lot of money, and that our economy here at home is pretty tight, but if you wish to put in anything (even pocket change), we'll send the full amount to the Red Cross to help with the recovery effort.
