PARTY with First Officer Green Girl!!!  
ATTENTION ON DECK!  The First Officer, mizuno_caitlin , has returned!  And you know what that means.  It's time to PARTY!

So that means we need to plan.  It also means that this is the one party that DOESN'T get a democratic poll.  We've got limited time with our lovely First Officer Green Girl, and we need to make sure she can get to the party!  She also gets to pick the activities and video selections.

Also, I apologize for not planning a party for February.  I was busy being all badass as Director of Security for Naka-Kon.  Your Chief Engineer (coldfireserge ) was one of the other directors for the con, and both our own Chief of Security (leftarrow ) and Alpha-Shift pilot (dazi_li ) were members of my security team.  That event took a lot of my time and energy for February, and that's why I didn't plan a Macchiato party. 

So, that just means we'll have to make up for it by partying twice as hard this month, right?

TIME AND PLACE:  The party this month will take place on Saturday, March 19th.  The place will be the Captain's Quarters (my house).  I invite people to start arriving as early as 3:00 PM, but as usual with our parties, I anticipate that the real fun will begin around 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM.  Come early to socialize in a less-crowded atmosphere, and to help set up.

FOOD:  Our First Officer has requested a Pot Luck.  Please bring something to share with the crew!  It can be a beverage, a snack-type item, a dessert, or a hearty item.  I'll provide something hearty... probably chili.  (People seem to enjoy that.)

STAR TREK WATCHING:  We will be watching Episodes of Deep Space 9.  If there's a particular episode of DS9 that you'd like to see, suggest it in a comment below!

ACCOMMODATIONS:  The Captain's Quarters now has a Rec Room!  In January, I put carpet in my basement, and brought in three new futons.  The basement is now a proper party room, with enough space for EVERYONE so we can do our episode-watching down there in comfort.  And with a total of four futons in the house, I have plenty of space for even more people to stay the night if needed.  If you anticipate needing to stay overnight, just let me know ahead of time.

Please RSVP below so I can get an approximate head-count for the party.

Also, because we just don't see our First Officer often enough, we're also going to have a casual get-together either this weekend OR next.  If you want to get together for episode-watching and general silliness before the big party, please let me know ASAP whether THIS Saturday (the 5th) or NEXT Saturday (the 12th) would work better for you.  It's not quite enough time to plan a big party, but certainly plenty of time to set up the TV and buy some snacks.

Also... I anticipate painting people green at both events.  Who's in?

HAILING FREQUENCIES OPEN!

RSVP me for the 19th! I'll whip up something tasty, for sure. I'd probably like some futon or couch space, as I hope to party a bit. If that means I end up painted green, at least it will match my eyes. :P

The BadAss Gourmets of KC are meeting this Saturday (5th) so the NEXT Saturday (12th) would work best for a casual meetup for me. My calendar currently looks free that day.

It's been a long while since I've seen DS9, so I Googled up a few "Best of" Episodes lists. Looking at those, I'd put a vote down for "Crossover", "The Jem'Hadar", and "The Search 1+2".

Re: I am Excite
Wonderful! Can't wait to see you there! I'll try to get those DS9 episodes on the list. :)

Sorry, but we have previous plans. We might be able to do something next weekend.

Awww, sadness! Whatever you're doing, I hope it's fun! I'll keep you posted about next weekend. (Do you mean the 5th or the 12th?)

Next Saturday, oh please oh please! :) (Well, if the democracy agrees and all. XD) I don't work next weekend and should be able to come.

And re: the 19th: I shall be there, universe willing!

SQUEE! I look forward to (hopefully) seeing you both times! :D

-Mar. 19 happens to be the only free Saturday I have for the next few weeks. So count me in on that evening.

-As big a hit as they were at the last party I'm going to bring some more peanut butter treats.

-For DS9 episodes I vote for Trials and Tribble-lations.
Mijan: Captain Speaking (CP in Unstoppable)mijan on March 3rd, 2011 02:33 pm (UTC)
ZOMG YAY!!! I can't wait to see you.

And I totally agree on the episode choice. :D
Hawkelf: bertiehawkelf on March 3rd, 2011 08:49 pm (UTC)
burnmybody and I are good for the 19th! It's during our spring break!

We're also two votes for this Saturday - next Saturday he'll be out of town and my parents will be in town. I think. Yes.
Mijan: Captain Speaking (CP in Unstoppable)mijan on March 3rd, 2011 08:53 pm (UTC)
OMFG YAY!!! I'm so glad the timing works out for the 19th.

Let's plan on a small get-together this Saturday. Nothing huge. Snacks, drinks, episodes, and geeking. Small crowd. And we can plan some antics for the 19th.

I miss you guys! How's the semester going?

So, am confused now... did you end up having a thing on the 5th, or will there still be a thing on the 12th?
Mijan: Captain Speaking (CP in Unstoppable)mijan on March 9th, 2011 03:54 pm (UTC)
I've got nothing planned for the 12th. Just the 19th. You're always welcomed to come over and see us, though! ♥

Awesome! :D

I plan on stopping in for a bit, at least. I will be working that night hauling drunks around for filthy lucre, so will have to take leave before too late.
jlm121jlm121 on March 14th, 2011 10:23 pm (UTC)
I will be there with bells on. . . well I'll be there, bells optional.

Not sure what I'll bring, in fact am extremely open to suggestions.

Mijan: OMGWTF*tribble*mijan on March 14th, 2011 10:53 pm (UTC)
Well, Geoff tends to bring desserts, and usually more of them than we can eat... but variety is awesome. Really, it's totally open. We'll probably need some healthy snacking stuff such as a veggie tray. Fruit salad is amazing. BBQ meatballs are a favorite and I don't think anyone is making that. Or do you have a particular dish that you love to make for people? We do anything from snack food to hearty meal stuff.

Also, I was just reminded that our party is only three days before the official TOS birthday of James T. Kirk. Methinks we need a birthday cake.

So... pretty much anything!
Kaymythkaymyth on March 18th, 2011 02:35 pm (UTC)
James and I will be there. Will probably bring Trekkie-style gingerbread cupcakes. :)
Mijan: Kirk: o hai!mijan on March 18th, 2011 02:42 pm (UTC)
AWESOME!!! *is happy*
Wyoming Knott: kirk/spockwyomingnot on March 18th, 2011 02:36 pm (UTC)
Okay, a shiny corner of getting fired... I can come to the party now. :)

Any suggestions on what to bring for the pot luck? I don't cook and haven't a clue.

(my only trek icon. I have a Q/Picard on dreamwidth, but not on lj alas)
Mijan: Kirk/McCoy - Threesome?mijan on March 18th, 2011 02:46 pm (UTC)
Yes, that is a shiny corner to lack of employment. And we shall help you to disperse stress. You're also welcomed to stay overnight. :D

For the Pot Luck... if you don't cook... we'll need drinks and munchies, too. Veggie platter, fruit, cheese and crackers, chips, and so on. Lots of non-cooking options. I'm planning on buying paper plates, paper bowls, cups, and plastic cutlery tonight, but if you want to help with that, that would be a marvelous contribution, too. Totally up to you.

And your icon? Is awesome. ♥

Aw dammit. April/May is exceedingly busy for me on weekends. I've decided to be on cast for OKRF and am flailing around with, "OMG, new character; new costume!" Third academy is this weekend and if I don't go they'll be all, "Oooh, she thinks she's too good to come to academies. *sigh*

So I'll have to miss this one and miss meeting everybody. Sadness.
Mijan: Kirk: o hai!mijan on March 18th, 2011 02:51 pm (UTC)
It it an all-weekend thing? Because our party probably won't end until 2:00 AM. People usually still show up as late as midnight. So if you're free later in the evening, you can come by whenever. You know... if you're interested. :D
