LOVE ACTUALLY - holiday party and potluck

Hello everyone! I hope this message finds you all well. It’s holiday time again. We will be having a holiday party and potluck to celebrate the season. The potluck will be held Saturday, December 19th at 6 pm. Please BYOB and a dish to pass. If you have a folding chair for yourself bring that as well, otherwise we might be short on seating. We will enjoy a holiday meal together and watch the film LOVE ACTUALLY. Stick around for more revelry after the film as well! The FILM: NEW MEMBERS AND THOSE WHO HAVE NOT BEEN OUT YET OR IN AWHILE ARE ENCOURAGED TO JOIN US! General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed – but I don’t see that – seems to me that love is everywhere. Igniting laughter, wreaking havoc, breaking... General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed – but I don’t see that – seems to me that love is everywhere. Igniting laughter, wreaking havoc, breaking hearts, daring commitments, forcing choices, catapulting spirits, forging inroads, creating risks—ecstatic, exciting, unexpected, unwelcome, inconvenient, inexplicable, inelegant, unequalled. Love actually is all around. From the new bachelor Prime Minister (HUGH GRANT) instantly falling in love with a refreshingly real member of the staff (MARTINE McCUTCHEON) moments after entering 10 Downing Street… To a writer (COLIN FIRTH) escaping to the south of France to nurse his re-broken heart who finds love in a lake… From a comfortably married woman (EMMA THOMPSON) suspecting that her husband (ALAN RICKMAN) is slipping away… To a new bride (KEIRA KNIGHTLEY) mistaking the distance of her husband’s best friend for something it’s not… From a schoolboy seeking to win the attention of the most unattainable girl in school… To a widowed stepfather (LIAM NEESON) trying to connect with a son he suddenly barely knows… From a lovelorn junior manager (LAURA LINNEY) seizing a chance with her long-tended, unspoken office crush… To an aging “seen it all, remember very little of it” rock star (BILL NIGHY) jonesing for an end-of-career comeback in his own uncompromising way… Love, the equal-opportunity mischief-maker, is causing chaos for all. These London lives and loves collide, mingle and climax on Christmas Eve—again and again and again—with romantic, hilarious and bittersweet consequences for anyone lucky (or unlucky) enough to be under love’s spell.

    Conversation was nice.
    Location was somewhate crowded so it was hard to meet some people.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
