I Am So Smrt : For the Edification of offermeescape ... [May. 23rd, 2004|09:11 pm]
Young Geoffrey
... and to massage my own ego, this is what I wrote to a friend on April 3, 2003:

Just for the record, my predictions:

1) Bagdad [sic] will be taken (but not pacified) within a couple of weeks, no more than a month;

2) no weapons of mass destruction will be found, but there will be a few iffy installations the U.S. will trumpet as same;

3) the U.S. will declare victory and then leave the country in the control of a fascist strongman.


At the risk of revealing myself as immodest, my track-record looks pretty good, though I now think the U.S. will be driven out as whatever puppet it installs over the next couple of months is over-thrown.

But did you predict Young Geoffrey will get invited to a party uptown by someone he's never met?

I've invited you and touch_my_skin because that way I know I'll get plenty of photo coverage and a decent write-up! Bring "L"!

Not doing anything exciting this weekend around 9:00 on Saturday?

Rather be having fun with your close friend vienneau and his wild and crazy companions - a veritable feast of mirth and revelry?

Lucky for you, by popular demand, I'm having a PARTY!

As usual, the party isn't being held at my place because it's too small and hasn't been cleaned since late 2003. Instead this most wondrous event is being held at Paul and Mike's house (true friends!), just down the street:

Paul and Mike's Rockin' Party House
1 Fraserwood Ave, Apt #1
Toronto
Saturday, June 5th
9:00 PM until the wee hours
(Bring Whatever You Can/Want, Supplies Will Also Be Provided)

It's at Lawrence and the Allen, a 5 minute walk from Lawrence West station. Mapquest has the details. Accommodations can be arranged!

With only a one-day lead time, I need word-of-mouth - everyone is encouraged to invite/bring all their interesting and exhilarating friends. Sure, I could spend time developing a promotional party website and use fancy graphics, but every dollar saved in advertising means more high quality snacks and beverages! Frito-Lay chips instead of Equality Brand! (Okay, okay, I'll try and get some real party food - sushi anyone?)

There's no theme or anything, it's just a celebration of warmer weather
(hopefully) and good times. Normally I plan a party weeks in advance and people forget about it so of course I expect an 80% attendance this time!

If you can, let me know that you're coming so I can appropriately plan. Also let me know if you're *not* coming so I can make up an appropriate effigy for burning!

Hope to hear from everyone soon! (mattv99@hotmail.com)

Hanging my seer's head in shame, I confess I did not.

I don't yet know whether I'll be able to make it (skip the sushi, will you?), but thank you for the invite, and I'll see how "L" feels about the idea.

It's okay, I'm sure even Kreskin made mistakes once in a while!

I'll mark "Geoffrey" and "L" in the maybe column. Can I call her "L" in real life? Or should I just not mention the LJ references at all?

It should be a good event - we've got two dozen people confirmed, another dozen maybes, with people in university through to the old farts like you and I! It's going to be tough to balance between "wild drunken bash" and "refined event with culture and taste" - I don't think the sushi is going to make it beside the Doritos...
