EEB Year of Complicated Monkey 22 Jan Meet

Postby phalarope » Mon Dec 20, 2010 01:10 am

Mwahahahaha! My cunning plan has......failed, drat....., and I have been railroaded appointed Wonderfully Obtuse River-Wallah (Weird Oyster Researcher) & Supreme High Importinent Poo-Bah Pursuivant (WOR-SHIPP) of the Global Guild of Loonies, otherwise known as the EEB.

While it is my great good fortune and a high honor, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blahblah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.....

Rules of Conduct During Meets:
1) You may safely and properly address me as ‘Your WOR-SHIPP’ at any time.
2) I shall continue the good policy of my predecessor, SquigglyX (good man), to wit - Any decisions I make will be put to a vote before I make a final proclamation confirming the decision I made. :twisted:
3) Comment regarding my techno-limitations, unless offering genuine altruistic assistance, will result in points.
4) Fun is mandatory.


I shall contact Bernard (via Isobel) to secure some EEB LBEs for quizzes and draws to be held in March, June, September and December.

If you wish to partake in the EEB LBE draws, you will need to send me a GCTS http://www.discworldemporium.com/catalog.php?category=24 for each draw (pm me if you need my address). All the collected GCTS will be raffled off with the LBE in December.

Right. So, when should we have the first meeting of 2011? I am making the executive decision to avoid a meet on New Year’s Day, for the better recovery of tortured souls.

Use the voting options to select your preferred Saturday (voting closes on January 2, 2011).

Oh, and Mazzie will be providing the quiz. :thumbl:

I will be about on all of the above dates as the resident Dj all I need is someone to invite me in as fullwaveradio :D

I have selected 22nd, but only because it was there, any date should be ok.

Looking forward to being able to put my feet up and join in the fun. :D

Thanks for taking the baton Phalarope.

Alrighty then, the curtain will rise on the 1st EEB meet of Complicated Monkeys on Saturday, January 22, 2011, at 4 pm EST (2100 GMT :wink: ).

A reminder to all who wish to participate in the quarterly LBE raffles to send me 4 GCTS before March.

Bumpity bump. Come one, come all. Saturday, 9pm GMT, MS Messenger. Virtual silliness, diabolical quiz (with prize, for a given value of prize). There may be chocolate....
