Ebay is certainly making the contest giveaways for the 80s party a LOT easier to arrange. I’m awestruck by some of the crap, err, “stuff” I’ve found online. Here’s what I’ve bid on so far:
Michael Jackson “Thriller” poster
Menudo LP (ooh, it’s a rare collector’s item!)
Kate Bush “Lionheart Babooshka” Poster
The Cure’s “Boys Don’t Cry” Poster (it pains me to give this one away, but I will!)
New Kids On The Block Pins (okay, it’s weird but I have to admit, I did own their first tape)
4 tapes with 30 music videos each (Life in a Northern Town? Yes!)
Kim suggested we play mp3s from her new ipaq which she’s ugpraded to a 5 gig hard drive. Geeks in 2001 meet the 80s. Too fun. The invite should be out soon. If you’re not on the e-list (over there to the top right), be sure to signup so I can send you a proper invitation.
Dinner party plans are underway
After conspiring with a coworker, it looks like the next dinner party will be Thursday, August 23rd at The (ohsotasty) Summer Shack at Alewife in Cambridge, MA. Jasper White, the shack’s proprietor, makes the best pan-roasted lobster. I highly recommend this dish! An all around fun time for everyone is in store! If you’d like to join us, check out the info on the events listing page and/or send an email to email@example.com. You pay for what you consume: food and drink.
The rsvp3 venue has been booked and paid for. Michael’s got his eye on a white jacket, white pants and neon shirt. If it weren’t an 80s party, I’d be scared!
Fray Day 5 Boston has a venue. Hoorah! Festivities will take place on Saturday, September 8 at the Hannum Hall YWCA — oh-so-conveniently located in Central Square, Cambridge. (Okay so it’s not “Boston” but hey, it’s close enough, right?) Why not join us for four hours of storytelling, music, poetry, etc. It’s a volunteer-run adventure, so if you’d like to help out as a supporter, please get in touch. Fray Day started in San Francisco by Derek Powazek, the proprietor of Fray.com, a personal storytelling Web site that has become quite popular over the years.
In other fun event news, rsvp3 has a venue, too. This is a private shindig for e-list subscribers and friends hosted by myself and a group of friends. It’s a costume party of course and I have no idea what I’m going to wear. How about you?
In non-event news, I added a “sooz sitings” section to the elsewhere, etc page. After receiving an email from another “sooz” on the Web (in England), I thought I’d join the ranks of humans who link to others with the same name. Take a look. raquo;
