Yay! I'm finally able to make one of these, if only because I'm flying out of O'Hare the next day.

Never mind! I got a new job and can't take the time off in the middle of the week. I will be down there on a weekend soon, I'm sure.

Hopefully I'll actually make it this time and not come down with the flu the day before....

I want to come to this! But I am afraid. How do I know who you are?

It's pretty hard to miss us. We're almost always at a long set of tables just to the left as you enter the Goat. Several of us have pictures in our MetaFilter profiles, so feel free to use those as guides.

I propose that eamondaly wear a humorous, easily identified hat to help new attendees to find the group.

I never realized until just this moment how much alike Eamon and I look. Crazy!

+1 wear a weird hat

(also those pictures should do fine, thanks :D)
posted by goodbyewaffles at 2:47 PM on February 17, 2015

Are we wearing hats? I think I'm going to wear a hat. Ridiculous? Weird? Glamorous? So many choices, so little time. So few heads to put hats upon.

Also, I'm taking Thursday off.

Should've known shit would get real with the mention of hats. 🎩

Hats, man, that's how you know it's important.
posted by crush-onastick at 12:02 PM on February 22, 2015

Oh my gosh you guys I just realized that I have Thursday off due to my Boston trip.
posted by Zaximus at 7:26 AM on February 24, 2015 [4 favorites]

So two things:

1) I'm taking Thursday off too.
2) Last month I wanted to buy a stocking hat from the Billy Goat, but I didn't because of reasons related to a guy wearing a gross t-shirt. All this talk of hats means I will probably buy one and will wear it.

Is it Wednesday yet? Cause I have Thursday off.
posted by crush-onastick at 8:31 PM on March 2, 2015 [1 favorite]

I really want to make this one, but I don't know if I can. If I do, it'll probably be late.

Apparently today is the 51st birthday of the Michigan avenue Billy Goat.

Oh then it's PARTY hats!

I don't want to scare anybody who would be coming to this because you definitely should, but there is an alarming time/space warping thing happening downtown because this has been THE LONGEST DAY EVER.

That would not explain why I only have the next hour and a half to complete three hours' worth of work.
posted by Iridic at 1:38 PM on March 4, 2015

Hey folks, I'm feeling sick so I won't be able to make it tonight. Sorry. I look forward to seeing pictures of your party hats!
posted by deathpanels at 1:58 PM on March 4, 2015

Iridic obviously it is because the area where you are is losing time to MCMike's area.

Just got on the train. Hit me up if it looks like you'll head to the Frog before 8.
posted by eamondaly at 4:45 PM on March 4, 2015

Yet I still did not get my work done. Leaving now. I can't believe I missed the Wheel.
posted by MCMikeNamara at 4:49 PM on March 4, 2015

It should be way more awful in here than it is. But, you know, I wanna dance with somebody.

it was shitshow-y for a bit, but a lot of women, which is better than with a lot of douchey dudes.

That's true. Light Grey Dress Lady was a bit much.

Light Grey Dress Lady. UGH.
