***********************************************

VOLUNTARY GIFT EXCHANGE ($10 or Less)

*You can still join us for lunch if you don't participate!


For those in the spirit of giving this holiday season, we are having a "voluntary" gift exchange at lunch only.  Operative word 'voluntary.' Bring a gift either wrapped or in a gift bag.

Gifts should cost no more than $10. So long as we have more than 1 participant, which we do, all is fair and no one gets stiffed out of a gift.


Rules:

Although people usually participate with the intention of having fun, please read the following rules so we are all on the same accord -

• No WTF!/gotcha practical joke gifts - e.g. snacks, homemade/crafty, pornographic/licentious material or objects, I.O.U. notes, empty packages, racial or gender discrimination, etc.


• No gift contribution, you don't take a gift!


• If the gift you pick cost less than the gift you contributed, no whining, kvetching, or confronting anyone. :-)


I don't have to lay out the behavioral framework. Let's all have fun. Give the gift you would want to receive.   Happy Holidays!

Thank you, Fanatics!

    Great movie. Dir. Peter Jackson struck a good balance between visual realism and film gloss in upgrading HFR. The sequel was much better than the first installment. Good seeing you all. Happy holidays.

    So I was purchasing the tickets today for Sunday and my dumb ass ended up purchasing them for today at 4:15. I was going to go exchange them, but now what the hell? Might as well. I'll be watching it today. (OH...and uh...I will post spoilers! Ha! Just kidding!)

    Dang...believe it or not - I have gotten motion sick at 3D movies and won't take the chance again, esp. with this good of a movie. Shucks! Sounds like a lot of fun, too, in good ol' Hollywood! Enjoy!

      Take up sailing as a remedy. Join us for another 3D screening after you gain your sea legs..resolving motion sickness. Until then, come out for 2D movies. :-)

      What?! Are you kidding...I get terribly seasick, airsick, carsick, Charles. LOL. Been that way since I was a pup! I'll stick with 2D -- and even then I got sick at Hunger Games & Captain Phillips & had to leave both movies after about 40 min. :-/
