My game is broomball, assuming the weather isn't too terrible to play games outside...

That's right--it's the season of no garlic. That's a shame.

Before I forget: by the power vested in me by The Chicago Cabal* I am declaring this meetup Guilt Free. It's going to be 15 below with wind chill, so no goading or prodding or any other sort of manipulation allowed, especially by the likes of me. I hope to see you all, but if not we'll do this all again real soon.

Follow your heart and be sure to bundle up.

It's a new year and a new eamondaly.

But seriously, I am 98% sure I will be there tomorrow (If I have to be downtown for work, I'm going to be up for going and I'm 98% sure I'll be in the office.)

I will be there and I will be wearing a very pretty but completely un-winterized hat. So I may or may not arrive with both ears intact.

hey, because broomballer's are sissies, it was cancelled. That means I'm coming now!

No one is ice skating at the new park either. Wimps.

(says the guy who didn't sit next to the conference room window today because he didn't want to get a chill.)

It is very cold. I'm sorry I'll be missing out on anise cookies and fancy hat and you people but there's a puppy sleeping on me, sooo...

I hope people are coming! Payne got so excited we've got our tables all set up already. I'd hate to disappoint him.

On my way.

I'm at work til midnight - if people are still frogging some goats into the wee small hours then I might drop by.

I can't, I'm sorry. If I was closer in I might have the fortitude but no.

GUILT FREE. Your apologies are not accepted! But y'all were sorely missed, because it was a weird fucking night.

Apology not accepted. Add me to the broken hearts you've collected.

(Just kidding. I'm good.)

Also, I think I saw some A-games. A couple of B-games, too, maybe even an F-game, but I'm not judging.
posted by crush-onastick at 10:59 AM on January 8, 2015

I miss you guys. I had had resolved to get out more this year.
And I will.

readery, perhaps you could have given us insight into the strange behavior of accountants. Also, you have heard of the movie The Hunger, right?
posted by crush-onastick at 12:30 PM on January 8, 2015

I only remember thinking The Hunger should have been better considering Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie...I know I saw it but it was a while ago, maybe I was high or something.

And accountants, strange? hmmm
posted by readery at 1:00 PM on January 8, 2015

Accountants? What the hell happened last night?
posted by Iridic at 1:16 PM on January 8, 2015

You people are amazing. AMAZING. don't let anyone convince you otherwise.

There's no "accounting" for taste.

(Sorry, it's just killing me that I didn't somehow do this joke on Wednesday, so I had to put it somewhere. You are ALL amazing.)
