We Need Four More People or NO GO!
Okay Tacoma, this is it - the final update and shout-out for a pretty spiffy event http://i.feedtacoma.com/scout/brick-mortar-art-love/†that without four more people will slip through your icy fingers. The mind-blowing, groovy happenin' Art Love-In currently scheduled for tomorrow night might not happen if four more people don't RSVP. The hep event (yes, HEP -†a '60s slang synonym for hip) with†Elf Shrine Competition†http://i.feedtacoma.com/scout/art-love-elf-shrines-art/†and enticing mystery prize is dangerously close to being cancelled. This would be a bummer, a really bad trip - such a downer that I'm reminded of a depressing thing that happened to me today that I will share with you:
Scout's Poem of Elf Despair
I came upon a doleful elf
Consumed with deep despair,
A sullen, sadling City elf
Whose heart was laid out bare
He cried to me with pounding fists
His tiny elf legs shaking,
"I was headed for the Love-in,
I even did some baking,"
He said he heard it might not be
This wondrous art affair,
"Where are the T-town hipsters
The artists that do care?"
Then suddenly that elegiac elf
Got a look I thought was gas,
And to the world he proudly shouted,
"Be at the Love-In tomorrow night or I'm gonna kick your ass!"

|Hmmmm. Maybe someone in the adjacent Olympus Hotel would want to attend.|

|There's an idea!|

I thought the mention of alcohol would do it. Maybe those other people don't think this is a hip enough party to be seen at.

|Im making my sweet-ums and mulled wine for tomorrow night. I hope it's still on.
BTW, read what I left on one of Morgan's Brains postings.

|Let me know what food group is still lacking. I called the patriarch Teddy Haggerty and he said he will try to make it if I remind him tomorrow, which I will do. That should count as two people (especially if Len or Randy tag along) but I don't think it was solid enough to count as a true tally.|

Don't make me write another poem.....

|Teddy Haggerty and he said he will try to make it if I remind him tomorrow, which I will do. That should count as two people (especially if Len or Randy tag along)
Teddy with the call equal one person. The other two contingencies probably equal half each based on their chance of showing.
That adds two more people or 24. Nice work Dave L!
ONE MORE PERSON TO COMMIT TO AND THERE IS A PARTY !!!!1!
anyone? Who will be the magical mystical person who sparks the event off?

|Thanks, Dave you are the man!|
by Mark Monlux on 12/18/2008 @ 9:51am
|I'm planning on coming as well.|
by scout on 12/18/2008 @ 10:05am
|ITS A PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANKS FOR EVERYONE'S HARD WORK - BRING YOUR CAMERAS - PARTY ON WAYNE!|
by Dave_L on 12/18/2008 @ 11:18am
|I didnít get a 100% commit from Teddy, and if he doesnít show (due to weather or something) itís not my fault. Do we have to sit around watching the beer and wine until #25 shows up?|

|Dave L. now you are just being a silly man|
