Want a Drink?
I had an absolutely wonderful going away party, thank you all for coming!

This party was definitely an overreach of my grasp: It would have been a better party (and cleared out more of my stuff), if I'd aimed a little shorter. But hey, what's a going away party for if not to be as big a bang as possible? I enjoyed every minute.

Starting the moment I rolled out of bed afterwords, I've been cleaning, clearing, boxing, reorganizing, and packing my bag. I have one more day of it, and I'll be done!

There's a ton of stuff I have to try to give back, and a much bigger ton (left over or otherwise free) for anyone who wants it. Do you want it, and can you grab things for people you're going to see?

I can bring stuff to the rocky preshow meeting (at MIT, 7:30pm, 2-105); in general, any time before my bus at midnight tomorrow is possible.

Will you be around tomorrow afternoon and does Diana know how to get to your place?

I'm sure my Parents will appreciate the beer and food for their 4th of July party and we'd love to take the spices off your hands.

The Paris artwork would be cool too!

Thank you :)

They're yours! Possibly not all of the beer, if people (like the comment below) want particular ones, but most of it. I don't know if Diana has been here-- I'm at 283 Washington St., in Cambridge. Directions are at http://www.existencia.org/info/grey17.txt

Is there anything still left? If so, Diana and I will be by around 3:30.

They're yours. How do you want to get them? (Preshow meeting, you dropping by?)

Sure, I'll swing on by. Not like it's far from work :P

I'd like the Rogue beers, and seriously, any other beers you're willing to lug over to MIT, I'll take them off your hands and distribute them to the next few afterparties.

if still available, we'll take the summer ale, hefe weizen, anarchy art work, buttershots, and as many, or all, of the spices as you would like to give away - we'll be at preshow meeting

Any of the alcohol you're willing to drag out to MIT and leave with Jon I will happily add to the stash for future after-parties.

Jonathan offered to do this too, so I gave him a pile of beer to bring to parties. There's still some left (there was a *lot*), if you want to grab it!

The honey liquor and butterscotch schnapps are mine (left the bag). I wouldn't say no to being reunited with them.

I can grab them whenever it works for you.

Hi James Rising! We come by house after meeting (give you ride home perhaps). Grab stuff, yeah?

I already own Slaughterhouse-Five but thanks anyway! Not sure I'll make it to the preshow meeting tonight ... could I stop by tomorrow around lunch time or after-work time?

also, you better go rock climbing a lot of times in the next few hours!

Oops-- Bethany says she thinks it was Mariah who wanted it. So no bird hats for you. Do you think I can pass on my unused climbing entrances to someone else?
