Hey! I'm retired, so I don't intend to crank on anyone just for the entertainment of others.

I'm all about the "mellow" these days.

Probably for the best. I'm all about the mellow, too, while I watch others poke each other with sticks, and get attacked by bees for their efforts.

Taxi in on the street. Plenty of room.

Looking forward to seeing everyone Saturday night

We have the worst best $10 white elephant gifts ever!

I think we'll come down in the Sprinter and have the bed already made up so if we drink too much we can just go sleep in the van too

I'm having a wellness crisis. I'm too well to even consider going to work. Must be sanity setting in
A dangerous condition for an inmate. So I called in Well, therefore I'm IN

Yeah, sleepovers! I haven't seen this van in person yet.
FYI, it's a YANKEE GIFT SWAP, meaning you bring a valid gift, rather than a white elephant gift.

Um, Hi?

Can two regional newbs come out and play?

Judging by some of the responses here, would it be safe to say we'd be spared from any odd rituals if we brought a sacrifice or two?




PM incoming...

A White Elephant gift is basically a stupid/gag gift that no one really wants. A Yankee Swap gift is a cool gift that is worth trying to trade for to get.

Precisely. Last year, one girl got a brand new tool kit, and was really embarrassed when someone else opened her box of tampons. Good for a laugh, but it makes people feel bad.

We accept newbs. I don't guarantee safety or absence of hazing rituals.

However, if you wrap a box of tampons with a $10 bill attached, then that's acceptable - as long as the money stays with the gift, even if it gets traded.

The beautiful thing about this party is that all of Ethan's many circles of friends merge together on this wondrous occasion so no one really knows who supposed to be there.

P.S. Ethan, I invited a couple of friends.

Rituals? Never, we want you to come, so I promise to personally not have you do any rituals. What some others do, I have no control over.
