    All right Tammy, I've finally manged to get my head out from wherever it was and managed to upload the pics.

    Along with the gazillion thanks here, I wanted to add mine as well.

    Thank you tons for doing this thing at your place. You and your family are a wonderful bunch and your place is absolutely awesome!! And special thanks for letting the "dead guy" pass out on the trampoline :)

    I hope you do it again next time and I'll be real glad to come earlier and help you set this up, in exchange for an extra hour on the trampoline :D

    Thanks again, it was awesome and the most fun I've had at a house party!

    The pictures are great. Thanks for posting them. It's so nice to see everyone having a good time.

      Hi Tammy! Had an amazing time! I am touched by this incredible group! Tammy, great meeting you! your gutsy, personable, friendly and a fantastic host! Had a great time wit you all! Have to make it to the next one's this summer! Cheers, Sue

  • Tammy S

    One pair of sun glasses, one space Fluxx card, (and the elusive green tea that was downstairs hiding by a green plant lol) all recovered. I can bring them with me to Kafka's Monday if that works?

    June 23, 2013

    • Ben

      I can get them tomorrow.

      1 · June 25, 2013

    • Tammy S

      I thought so. No worries. They are safe and sound and I will deliver them to Ben. looking forward to my.morning smile emails ;). I failed at delivering the card but will try again. Full of Stars card is tucked away safely as well.

      June 25, 2013

  • Tammy S

    (note: over character comment in two pieces)Thank you all for coming and for your kind words. I could.not have asked for more gracious guests. :)

    I hope everyone smiled at least once. If you got caught in the dice fight... I apologize for not better preparing you for my (and subsequently my family's) faceious sense of humor and for not telling you to find cover. ;) Life requires laughter to be fully enjoyed.

    Thank you for tolerating the safety patrol with both the fire and the trampoline.

    I am sorry that I was not better prepared. It was a long week for me but HYPE (House/Yard Party for Esv core ;) ) version 2.0 promises to be better. (If there is interest.) I also want to take the time to thank everyone for being so very helpful. It would not have been as good without everyone there. "Many hands make light work".

    1 · June 23, 2013

    • Tammy S

      ...and Sadie thanks everyone for tolerating both her and the 'gate nazi'. She had fun too!

    • Ben

      You don't need to be sorry for anything. One of the best house partys I've been to. And not one fight. Great job Tammy.

      June 23, 2013

      No way Steamworks doesn't count. It was good too but not the same. Like apples & oranges. Two way tie with Jeff's place.

    Thanks for opening up your place Tammy,
    I hope having us over wasn't too big of a burden on your side. Many of us had a great time, but we felt bad about not being able to help out with the night. Let us know how we can help out next time. Once again thanks for having us over.

    3 · June 23, 2013

    June 4, 2013

    • Jeff W.

      Hey Winnie. Can you call/text me later this afternoon when you're on your way to Cambie/Broadway? I'm running a bit behind schedule

    Anyone interested in carpooling? I would be driving from Vancouver.

    June 22, 2013

    • Andrew

      @Kevin: Hahaha unfortunately not ;) and no problem Tammy, I don't really feel like 1.5 hr of transiting there - I just won't be the "other Andrew" tonight hah.

      June 22, 2013

    • Andrew

      If you need a ride from Braid just pm me.

      June 22, 2013

  • Tammy S

    so far...
    i think we have:
    Mila bringing marinated chicken wings and a small grill,
    Jeff is bringing cards against humanity, a dish TBD and a couple video games,
    marc...werewolf?,
    winnie may bring an allergy safe dish for herself (but i will do my best to make more), and
    I have some burgers, hot dogs, taco dip, lemon squares and i think i have decided since i have kitchen access with stive and two microwaves, that I will make fresh warm cheddar and garlic biscuits :) (allergy safe winnie)
    ...

    2 · June 11, 2013

    • Tammy S

      Lol. Thanks jeff. It, of course has a story (as does everything, lol) and Sony is not shone in the best light in it. You will laugh when you see it... the case is open from drive replacement surgery. ;)

      June 21, 2013

    • AK

      Can someone grill the frozen veggie stuff I'll be getting please? Sadly, I'm not much of a cook :/

      June 22, 2013

  • Ben

    I will probably be cabing it from Braid if anyone wants to join me. I said it in a reply but it is the 18th reply so it may get missed there.

    June 22, 2013

    • AK

      Don't forget to bring the Blur buddy.

      June 22, 2013

  • Tammy S

    I'm thinking of putting poker outside on the deck at the round table. Any objections? My thinking is that the poker chips can't blow away and the cards will be in your hands, should there actually be any wind. :)

    June 2, 2013

    • •°♦ Ivy ♦.

      Andrew would love that and he could probably bring his set too. Which reminds me I should e-mail everyone in case they didn't get the invite and remind them not to be busy on that day haha....

      1 · June 4, 2013

    • Andrew

      Oh I would now eh? :P haha, I'll bring it along I suppose.

      June 22, 2013

    1 · June 22, 2013

    • Tammy S

      Great!!! Ian is bringing his tv too :D

      June 22, 2013

    • Kevin

      I'll probably be almost as late as him, so it all works out.

      June 22, 2013

    AArgh, I didn't think I was going to work this weekend. Have a great time everyone!

      June 21, 2013

  • Kevin

    June 21, 2013

    • Tammy S

      Sorry for the delay. I fell asleep last night and I had a doctors appointment today but I will get the email out soon

      June 21, 2013

  • Tammy S

    An email will be aent out this afternoon to all confirmed attendees :)
    The weather still looks good for outside :D. though the high temp for the day not be a big number, so layer accordingly ;)

    June 21, 2013

    • Ian

      Hi Tammy, please do not include me in the food count as I will only be showing up after 9:00, assuming that I get in touch with one of you and find out that everybody is still there.

      June 21, 2013

    • Tammy S

      Thanks for letting me know Ian. I am sure there will still be a plate for you when (if) you arrive :)
      I am unsure if we will even cook Ivy's marshmallows before 9 :)

      June 21, 2013

  • Samuel M.

    I will bring an almond jelly dessert if the test batch turns out ok.

    June 18, 2013

    1 · June 12, 2013

      I'm confused? are you bringing them or advertising? if you are advertising... before it gets yanked let me at that DR3 DeadRising 3 was announced for xbox one yesterday. Zombies keep food on my table. lol. if you are bringing them... I don't know how you got your hands on them but thanks ;)

      June 11, 2013

  • Ian

    Hey Tammy. Unfortunately I won't be off work until 9:00. Would it still make sense to drop by after or will you be wrapping things at about that time?

    June 7, 2013

    • Tammy S

      I was thinking closer to ten (possibly/probably later). You would likely have at least an hour. I would suggest maybe asking if anyone you wanted to see was planning on ducking out early. ;) You are welcome to come by. If disaster strikes and we close up shop early, I will text you. (but fortunately you are fairly close) I can also set some food aside for you if you like.

      1 · June 7, 2013

  • Jeff W.

    I'll bring either something homemade (to be decided), or a couple watermelon. I'll see what's out for ingredients before deciding

    1 · June 7, 2013

    • Jeff W.

      I'll also bring Cards Against Humanity and a couple video games :)

    Thank you Mila for helping out. you're an angel ;)

    1 · May 26, 2013

    • Tammy S

      I'll be covering taco dip, lemon squares, some burgers and punch. As for my game contributions, they're listed in the description above and most of the video games I have are one or two players ( I have no idea why ) so I'm hoping people are going to bring some multiplayer games and possibly a few extra contollers, that Jeff will bring Cards Against Humanity and that Marc will bring Werewolf. ;)

      June 7, 2013

      Anytime Tammy.

    1 · June 6, 2013

    • Tammy S

      I can honestly say I didn't do it. There is a possibility that I may have solicited Ivy to help ;)

  • Tammy S

    Transit that comes within half a block of my place is the BUS 157 from the Lougheed station or the 153 or 156 from Braid are a block. Google Mackin park. :) If you dont mind walking, it's about 8 minutes from Braid station. Anyone with hayfever is recommended to bring an antihistamine. My garden is half the yard and although I plan to get to it's overgrowing madness, I can't make any promises. ;) Anyone like gardening?...lol

    • Tammy S

      It wasn't me. lol. however... I may have asked someone else to do it. I am sorry. . :( I'm still learning how this works. :( ...but i'm trying??? A for effort? I promise not to post another event until I have it figured out. :)
      It was not my intention to make anyone feel obligated to come. I am sorry. Is it okay to leave it there now? Or would you like it removed? :)

      May 28, 2013

    • Ian

      It's not a big deal. I don't feel obligated. I just wanted to post to let people know that even though i'm no the list, it's no sure thing that i'll be able to attend.
