It's getting close to that time of the month again... this will be our last Chez M&M for this year, but we'll be back again in January.
And now the secret part. (...ssshhh...) Marcia's birthday is coming up at the end of this month and so I thought it fitting to celebrate it with those she admires! She says she's 39, but I'm pretty sure she said that LAST year. Hmmm... Now, rather than feeling obligated to buy her a birthday present or anything of the sort what we'd like to do is have a giveaway blanket. Basically, everyone (who wants to) brings something to put on the blanket - not something you went out and bought - but it could be something you made, a found item or something you've had for a while and feel it would be time to pass along to someone else. We'll spread a blanket on the floor and put all of the items on it, then everyone gets to choose an item from the blanket. This way we all celebrate together. I'll make a birthday cake, with a candle or two.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled announcement:
We can make anything from juice or herbal tea to espresso or just dark roast coffee, and I've been known to bake something when provoked (special orders considered). We'll put out a basket if anyone wants to make an anonymous donation to the coffee fund. Being a dedicated space means we don't have to fight other people for space and if the music's too loud you can ask the host to turn it down.
We live in James Bay, close to a bus stop, a 20-minute walk from the legislative building and there's on-street parking available.
We have a 32" TV with VGA and HDMI inputs so we don't have to stare at a laptop or tablet screen; it's easiest if people bring their work on a flash drive, DVD or whatever, but if you want to plug in your computer (we don't have adaptors for Macs, but you can bring one if you like) that works too!
As always, we ask people to edit their images to share down to about 10-12 so we have time to appreciate each image on its own merit.
The hours are set from 5-7, but show up when you're available and leave when you need to. We have seating for about 14 people; beyond that you're welcome to stretch out on the floor on a cushion or get cozy with someone else. If you show up, you'll be welcome!
