progress report and upcoming events

Ages ago, long time readers may remember, I started the do 101 things in 1001 days challenge. I am over 2/3 the way through the time in this challenge and I have enjoyed it immensely so far. I am not completely confident that I will be able to complete all my tasks by the 3rd of November this year, but I plan on making every effort.

Part of this effort will be to knock a few of the easy but 'haven't gotten round to them' task off this list asap this year (or at least schedule them so I tell people and they have more chance of happening, especially those task that need other people along to complete them) hence I am telling you about them... here... now. (I'm telling you on this blog, in case you don't know about the other one)
  • I am going to book a table at the Swiss Club for dinner of the 5th or 12th of February, for dinner. I'd like to hear from anyone (who I know) who would be interested in coming.

  • I am going to hold a 24 hour video movie marathon. Obviously I don't expect many people other than.... well probable only me actually, to stay for the whole gig, but anyone (again: who I know) that might be interested in coming, let me know. I am thinking Saturday the 19th of June, as this is just before the winter solstice. (planning ahead, I know!) I will publish a proposed program, which will be open to majority wins voting on the night.

  • I am going to host a games night. You (if I actually know you) are invited! It will be on Saturday the 27th of March. It will be fun, and slightly nerdy. There will be beer, and prizes!

  • I need to organise a picnic. This a bit of a danger, cos as you know: Melbourne weather. It can be a bit dodge. This one I will get back to you (oh mythical web person) soon.

  • Role-playing. Yes it is a nerd fest. I will have to get back to this one too. I need to decide if I am going to GM this or ask a friend, I also have a feeling I am going to have difficulty getting takers for this one.

You could come to Arcanacon (http://www.arcanacon.org/) on Australia day weekend? :) There's a wide selection of games, you can play anywhere between 1 and 13 sessions of gaming...

I'll come to the Swiss Club. Games night is out for me as that's the day we leave for China. Remind me about movie night in June :)
