... :c

That is all I have to say.

I see how it is, though. Ya'll don't want cute little red heads in your gang.
Whatever. You know. Doesn't bother me.

We are not colour prejudice .....Red is a cute red head which is why we call her Red (as opposed to the colour she goes when I tell the staff in Caribou that she is my wife)..... we just oppose those with a 9 to 5 work ethic....We mourn your absence every Wednesday...I would say bring the kids but I'm not insane :) Though we have to work out when we can all meet up....We have major Squid withdrawal symptoms!!!

Squiddish

Wait, Red's your wife now? This is a new development. I had not heard this... WHAT HAVE I MISSED IN MY ABSENCE?

Technically, I have an over achieving 8-5 work ethic, rather than 9-5. Because I like to go above and beyond.

And you guys better work it out--Squid withdrawal is a terrible thing to go through. Thankfully, I have the cure. (Or I am the cure.)

Wait, you told the staff at Caribou I'm your wife? Where was I for this?! I would totally have played along! XD

Hey you nag me like we are married!!!!!

I just might take you up on that offer ... as long as I don't have a temp assignment on any given Wednesday. Sounds like a good time to get some dedicated writing (and smoking, and talking, and Facebooking as long as David is there) time in. And if you're experiencing squid withdrawal, I have the next best cure for ya ... Q*BERT!!!!! No tentacles, but that might be a good thing, since they have not been trained to type at super human speeds. No telling what my unoccupied tentacles would do. If I had them.

Hey it just would not be a proper get together if you did not run off on a temp assignment....and hey Qbert and Squid at the same time in the same room....that would be the greatest Christmas!!!!

We need something more local for me and Squid. Any chance for a Batavia Caribou once in awhile? Or the Naperville Caribou?

Tairisanders

the 95th St Caribou is in Naperville.

Yeah, I know, but I meant the one near Dominick's where Katherine had her write-ins. The one on 95th is just too far for me. Not that it matters now. Doc has shut down my public exposure.

Sorry to hear that are you ok?

I have autoimmune issues, so I'm on a cancer med to disable my immune system. It leaves me unable to fight off the random virus and bacterium. So doc makes me stay home. It's a life-long adventure! LOL He got mad at me for going to all the write-ins. I'm such a rebel!

Oh that sux. I could set up a webcam so you could virtually attend?

The 95th Street Caribou is a trek for me, too, so I'm all for trying to work something out a little closer to home. :)

oh you traitor!!!!! Leave you colours at the door!!

I'm thinking of organizing something at the Naperville Caribou on Tuesday evenings. (Since the Downer's Grove one may change to a different night in January.)

And/Or possibly the Naperville Caribou on Sunday. Not sure about every week though. Maybe once or twice a month. (Although people could make it weekly if they wanted, I just might not be there every week.)

I might also be able to commit to the Batavia Caribou for one Sunday afternoon a month, but not until January.

KatherineWriting

Sorry, should be clear, I mean the Caribou by Dominick's -- not the one on 95th.

Larkk

I would totally be up for Caribou by Dominick's. Come January it will be nice to reconnect with the NaperWrimos.

Coupon for $2 medium drink at Caribou on 12/14/11


It's worth joining Caribou's email by the way. (Can then just show the email on your phone and don't have to print out the coupon, but they send emails about $2 drinks several times a year.)

You are beautiful. Thank you!
We don't have a Caribou near me (anymore), but I'm going to join their email list for these meet ups.

Are people at 95th Caribou today -- 12/14?
I'm planning on coming, but not if it's just going to be me.

Tairisanders
114217 words so far Winner!

yes we were there and so was you :) (I am so helpful) :)

cableshaft

i'd be up for batavia and/or dominicks caribou in the evenings or during the weekend (this month will be tough during the week, though... pretty busy with work). 95th street during the weekend is fine for me too.

cableshaft

...also could do evenings at sugar grove library starting next month.

Squiddish

I think I might be able to swing that get together, if people start goin'. (:

Qberty

Sorry I didn't make it this week. Had to help someone set up their Kindle Fire and teach them how to use it. Paying gigs will take precedence in this all-too-material world :) ... think I have an assignment that might lead to a permanent position - only problem is the company is based in Glenview. Now looking forward to that drive, but it's possible that a lot of it can be done remotely. Fingers crossed!!!

Sorry, can't make today's posse meeting since I'm working on assignment this week and next :( I wanna come out and PLAY!!!

As far as I know, no one went today because we're all gearing up for the holidays. But we'll be there next Monday, the 26th (instead of Wednesday), if you're free then!

Wait! I scheduled something at the Caribou near Dominick's for Monday the 26th--is there also a gathering at 95th? I thought the 95th posse was meeting on the 28th.

Squiddish
87790 words so far Winner!

Yeah, they'll be meeting on Monday due to some schedule issues. AND I ACTUALLY GET TO GO.

Qberty

Phew! I feel much better knowing I didn't miss anything :) Thanks Jez

I probably will come next Monday since the kids won't be around and the office I'm working at is closed. Wheeeee!
