Oh, Hell, it's the O.H. book club!

Thanks to everybody who came out for re-gifting this weekend!  I think everybody went home happy (or at least amused!) with their gift!

Keith and I decided that everybody who wanted to attend but missed can bring their re-gift to the next O.H., and we will vote on how those people's gifts are exchanged:  Carl, Ray, Sue?  (Anybody else?)  Or you can wait until we do another re-gifting later this year.....

In other news, inspired by the fact I am attending two actual book clubs in the same week, I am making this book club night for Oh, Hell!  Unlike OTHER book clubs, you will NOT be required to read anything at all!  But every time you deal, you must tell us about one of your favorite books you have read at some time in your life!  Unlike other book clubs, you can talk about ANYTHING you want!  "Hoyle's Rules", "Fun With Dick and Jane", "Moosewood Cookbook", "Girl Director", "Paradise Lost", Harlequin Romance No. 93, Encyclopedia Brittanica 1974, that book Socks Clinton wrote--ANYTHING!

And, yes, we'll play cards!

    Julie's comment about dead Bushes in Houston reminded me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhHr7LCVQRw

      Well I will step up and state that I am deeply disturbed over the literal murder of these two bushes. I am not sure what kind of vetting you do for members but it shocks me that no one else cares about this issue.

    I totally understand about the weather, but I just wanted to let you all know that it's officially 34 outside, and it's been sunny for an hour, so the sidewalk ice has probably melted downtown. The chance of snow tonight is still listed as 30%, with little to no accumulation. But I totally understand if you can't make it! Just wanted to give the weather update.

      If we are lucky we can go right from Oh Hell to the flash snowball fight in Dupont.

    Just wanted to let you know that I am planning to go forward for tonight. We have NOT had snow in the city today, and the chance for tonight is down to 30%. I think it will also be warm enough (barely!) for it to melt, if it does snow a bit.

    Please be careful, though, because some sidewalks still have ice on them. They are still saying we are supposed to hit 34 at some point, so I'm hoping it will actually melt, but do be careful.

    If it does start snowing this evening and this affects your plans, I totally understand, and we'll see you next time!

    In the spirit of our book club Oh Hell meetup, I hope you will allow me a bit of self-promotion. My mom is having her first novel published, a young adult novel entitled Providence. If YA literature is something you (or your children/nieces/nephews/etc) are interested in, please check out the link below. The book is being released on March 18, but is currently available for pre-order at Amazon and other sites.

    Thanks!! See you tomorrow!

    Would be a great night to get together and play hours of Oh Hell or Doppelkopf - does anyone have a fireplace - I do have some wine I could bring.

      I think that's the lost verse of "Let it Snow!"

      I can check if Comcast still has the yule log channel on cable. The glow of the tv is not warm, though.
