Box Party, Tie Dye Day Announcements 1

The Date is 10-14-05, Friday.

October 14th, Friday. As today is Wednesday the 12th, Thursday must be the 13th, and Friday must be the 14th.

Anyway, from Noon to 4 is what we have planned for the Tie-Dye/Box Party. Becky's Grandmother's House, near Ned's house, IM me for details or see the next F-Only Entry.

Just a reminder of what all we need to have on the Tie-Dye and Box Party Day

1. Boxes of Rit Dye(get 2 of one color if its a dark color) We currently have 1 of Orange and Purple, 2 of Black, and green and blue were volunteered to obtain by Amy and/or Cara

2. Large Metal Forks/Spoons for Stirring(Big salad spoon type, meat fork type, or even just something really long like a big old metal rod)

3. BUCKETS!!! (AS MANY AS POSSIBLE WE DO NEED!) We have ~15-20 buckets people already have said could be obtained, but that's kinda boosted up by Vincent's claimage, so yeah. Just bring as many as you can find.

4. Turkey Basters(Also Important) We need about 1 per person/colour

5. Vinegar (Any Kind will do)

6. Also we're looking for ~6 boxes and soem scizzors and a roll or two of duct-tape for the box party aspect.

Though you'll want to bring decorative items if you wanna embellish 'em, b/c I know there'll be wrapping paper, but past that I don't know what'll be there. I'm gonna drop off three boxes over there during the week.

And yeah, we're having a MEETING WEDNESDAY AFTER SCHOOL REAL QUICK NOMORE THAN SAY 5-10 MINUTES For Discussing the activities of this 4-day weekend. And even if you can't get together at Becky's Grandmother's house, supplies are still very much appreciated/probably needed.

I'm probably going to get some pink and red rit dye myself.

So. Box-making was amusing today. Don't even try to deny it :P

I was listening to some podcasts, and had a stupid, but I guess cool, idea. Every other week, we should take some of everybody's writing, and make a podcast out of it. We just read whatever we want to, and broadcast to the world what awesome writers we have at Henry Clay.

...okay, so I have no clue how we'd go about that. But it'd still be neat. Yeah? Haha.

(Maybe we could all record it onto our computers, and then e-mail it to somebody who would then put it into one? Haha. I'm too into my funky ideas.)

Yes, I'll leave before you all throw tomatoes at me.

What is podcasting?
You don't need an iPod for it, you actually don't even need iTunes (although it's recommended). There are other ways in which to listen to Podcasts, such as Odeo and Podnova.

It's a really neat thing, I listen to two podcasts religiously, hehe.

The Long Anticipated Flagship Tell It Slantly snippet. I call it "The Jesus Poo" but it's untitled.

A man gets up. The man goes to take a crap. He tries to flush the toilet but he hears a voice. A deep thundering voice that commands him not to flush. He looks down and it's Jesus' face on a turd.
"What!" says the man
"It is I your lord and savior" said the turd "I have come back for your souls"
"But Lord, why are you on a turd?"
"Because the world is full of shit and I am the essence of the world."

Yea, I took notes. Hopefully I remember to do this every time too- could be useful. I forgot the name of the Cafe that will be hosting, but I'll find it and post that and directions hopefully tomorrow.

Thank you all so much for a successful meeting. We dropped a substantial number (Forgot the signin sheet, so those stats are rough), and that's not a good thing. It might have been my yelling... But I'll not do that. We also didn't have any food. That's boring, and we encourage people to bring food (you may store it in Mrs. Kinner's room in the morning in case you don't have a place for it).

Notes from above in case you didn't read:

- Bring food to meetings
- Poetry slam after Gallery Hop
- Bring dye
- Bring boxes to decorate next meeting.

Thank you!
