    Fenn, thank you for hosting. Sarah, the quiches were delicious. Sean, so was the bean dip. Blair, that was a fine beer. I'm glad that a lot of people were seeing Time Bandits for the first time, it's one of my favorites.

    Gotta say, Time Bandits made an excellent substitution for Meloncholia

    I'm having car issues and don't want to drive any more than I have to. I'm passing on this one. Have fun everyone.

    Fenn, the address requires the city; it's leading to the wrong road

    Fenn should I come early for some Street Fighter games before we start?

    I will be making some white bean and rosemary dip.

    Because you can never have too many dips at a WG meetup. :P

    I really want to be there for Donnie Darko, but I probably can't make it until around 7:30-8-ish. Is it allowed for me to selfishly request that that movie be played second? :D

    • Elisa

      YES PLEASE

      August 28, 2013

    • Annie

      Works for me since I won't get there till then, either. The other movie is on Netflix so I can watch it later.

    So I was planning on making my buffalo chickendip again, so long as Fenn allows me use of his microwave and a bowl~ Would anyone possibly be able to grab some Tostitos Scoops for the occasion!

    If anyone has a copy of Melancholia, I would appreciate you bringing it to the meetup. I will have a copy from the library, but it is in pretty bad shape and I'm worried it won't play. Thanks!

    August 26, 2013

    • Elisa

      Sarah I think I have a brand new copy of ot on DVD. I will look in the morning and let you know.
