Ah, yes - the venerated white elephant. He will make a second appearance in about a month here at BBGG, since Rich and I missed out on the gift-exchanging goodness at the Not-So-End-of-the-World Party recently. So the plan is that everyone brings a game that you would enjoy receiving yourself. Maybe it's a unique find you picked up at a thrift store. Perhaps there's one in your collection you've neglected, and it could use a new home. Mayhap it'll be a cool brand-shpankin'-new one that you're giving away just for shih-tzus and gaggles, plus the kindness of your sole. Or your arch. Or your flounder. In any case, keep in mind most participants would probably be interested in something more substantial than Monopoly, Yahtzee, or Scrabble.

***ASTERISKS*** Please note in your RSVP or the comments if you're joining the elephantine merriment. If we don't have a least dozen or so, then we'll just have a regular ole game night, which of course will still be buckets of fun, as per always.

The usual details: We'll prepare some foodstuffs, and you're welcome to bring grillables, a snack, side dish, or dessert if you're so inclined...it's helpful if you indicate what (if anything) you're toting along in the comments section so we don't have a plethora of potato chips or cookies. BYOB! Two cars could park on our driveway, there are three designated parking areas in our Circle (ranging from 3-7ish spaces per), or you could parallel on Left Hand Cir (NOT along the street of Glendale Gulch, please...it riles up the neighbors). My cell if you need it - 4068394518.

[This event is brought to you by the letters J, X, and the Albino Animal Conclave.]

    My serpentine belt blew on the way back from Christopher's last night. Hopefully I can get it all fixed today (there might also be an alternator pulley issue). If not, I'll ask if someone can give me a ride. I'm about a mile southwest of Jay and the Diagonal.
    And that pumpkin pie's just sitting there, staring at me....
    it's so .... ugh!

    Okay last comment from me on this one: Shredded cheese and sour cream are still up for grabs to bring. Mmmmmmm, dairy!

      I'll bring those.

      Damn, he beat me by 43s. Now I have to think of something else!

    We are just getting back the night before, so I don't know yet what we will be bringing, but something tasty!

    I am not going to do the white elephant directly (unemployed and overly frugal), but I want to cheer everyone else on. I will bring a quick bread (pumpkin, cranberry orange, or the like) unless someone requests something specific that appeals to me.

    Clarifying - @ those doing the W.E. as well as bringing a +1...will it be both of you participating?

    December 31, 2012

    • Lorelei

      Yes -- we're bringing two games.

    Yes, preferably a board game for exchanging - though something else neat-o of a different breed would also be fine. Just no gag gifts, pleeeeeeeeeeeease.

    I'll join in the white elephant giveaway.
