The month when we all thought we'd start being free to meet is upon us... this also means, of course, the beginning of the Moste Excellente community scarvesnhats
, which, incidentally, is devoted to Remus and Sirius in the month of October. So if you love those two, and I know you do go check that out. I'll be posting under my other lj name, theenginedriver
. You should consider writing for it too!
BUT! SHOEBOX MEET UP!
Even though the updates are infrequent and unpredictable, our love for the box of the shoe remains strong, and we'd like to meet with our fellow obsessed cult members to
drink magic Kool-Aid eat lots of toast
hang out and have a good time! Unfortunately, I have a crazy work schedule and cannot guarantee being there on any particular day until a week - a week and a half - in advance (when they make up the schedule). However, we shall come up with places to meet, and potential dates, and figure something out.
I want everyone who is a member of this community to post good times for her/himself and good locations for all of us. Go on, spam everyone's flist, let's talk about this!Good times for me:
any night except Mondays, and the weekends. Again, I can't guarantee that I will be free on any given weekend, but if we just choose a day, I can try to get it off or work the schedule to my advantage.Good places to meet:
Tryst (Adams Morgan coffee shop)
Any bookstore coffee shop, especially the Borders at 14th and G or the Barnes and Noble at ... I want to say... 12th and F? Both of those are right near Metro Center and are very easy for us to get to.
Also, I know that a lot of us go to concerts at the Black Cat, the 9:30 club, etc. If anyone would want to meet up at any of those, or just have someone to hang out with, the next one I will be going to is the Decemberists on Sunday at the Black Cat. Also, tonight I'm going to DC9 to the Franz Ferdinand release party, but be warned, that is 21+.
All right, Shoebox ahoy!
