Hey, Farny, that's my gag! And another th... [Sleep]
Posted by Annie (Member # 295) on :
Hi - I'm Annie. I'm from Montana, and I brought a jello mold.

I'm wearing my Raggedy Ann costume because I never get an opportunity to wear it and I thought you folks might appreciate it.

I am also about to eat all of muppet's hummus.

*puts on some groovy French Arabic music*
Posted by the Professor (Member # 5319) on :
Good news, Farnsworth! You win the door prize! :hands over flaming bag:
Posted by Professor Funk (Member # 5608) on :
I only thought it appropriate to don my alter-ego in honor of the other professors around here.

*sticks "Hello my Name is Professor Funk" sticker over the "Hello my name is Annie" sticker*
Posted by Teshi (Member # 5024) on :
I'm Teshi and I'm from Canada's National Capital (cause nobody calls it by its name anymore)

I didn't bring anything except... um...

[Smile] [Big Grin] [Smile] [Big Grin] [Smile] [Big Grin]

Smiles, I guess.

Hello everybody! I'm Godric. And I come from not very far away...
Posted by Professor Funk (Member # 5608) on :
*eats all of muppet's hummus*
Posted by Morbo (Member # 5309) on :
Hey Godric! [Wave] You would pop in right before I have to go to my sister's house. [Frown]
Posted by Godric (Member # 4587) on :
My timing is impeccable, as always!

Good to see you could make it Morbs!
Posted by Maccabeus (Member # 3051) on :
Hi folks! [Wave] I'm from Western Kentucky!

*peers at the humus* What are we going to be planting?

(I believe the food dish is hummus--though what "hummus" is I don't know. "Humus" is soil. [Razz] )
Posted by Hobbes (Member # 433) on :
KarlEd: [Kiss] Where's that screenshot we've been waiting for?

Hello, my name is Hobbes and I work in a button factory. One day my boss came to me and... never mind. [Big Grin]

I'm from Colorado, but am attending university at Purdue in West Lafayette Indiana.

Hobbes [Smile]
Posted by T_Smith (Member # 3734) on :
Mmmm... jello mold.
Posted by twinky (Member # 693) on :
I always thought sarcasticmuppet was male... whoops.

Karl could marry me if he came up to Ontario [Big Grin]

Posted by screechowl (Member # 2651) on :

Where's the food? I just came here for the food.

Posted by rivka (Member # 4859) on :
Ooh, another get-together! Cool.

I brought cookies. And pita wedges for with the hummus.
Posted by Megan (Member # 5290) on :
I'm Megan, and I'm originally from Atlanta, but I'm in Bloomington, IN, getting my Ph.D. at IU. Having announced that, I am now obligated to at [Taunt] Hobbes.

(But I really don't care...sports aren't my bag, and Purdue doesn't have a music school. [Big Grin] )

ETA: well, it has a music department, but not really a music school, per se. [Dont Know]

Posted by fugu13 (Member # 2859) on :
Megan: you'll find there's a handful of bloomingtonians on the board who would love a real life get together. I am currently not one of them (I'm in Saint Louis right now), but I return to Bloomington upon occasion, so I may squeeze into such a shindig myself.
Posted by littlemissattitude (Member # 4514) on :
Hello, my name is littlemissattitude...I'm in Central California. Just so you know, everything you've heard about Fresno is probably true. [Razz] This time of year, about the only thing to do is watch them roll the raisins. Whoopee.

[Eek!] Where is Pop when you need him?

WOAH! You live in Bloomington?? Me too!!! Hi, everyone, I'm Raia... I'm from Israel, but I live in Bloomington!

(And Megan, we should get together some time...)
Posted by Zevlag (Member # 1405) on :
I think Kama gets the prize, NOT! [Wink]
Posted by Narnia (Member # 1071) on :
Yeah, hailing you from the exciting city of Portland! *waves flag*

Megan, I'll have to get you in touch with a friend of mine out there at IU. He's doing grad school out there and it's kicking his butt! [Big Grin]
Posted by KarlEd (Member # 571) on :
Kama gets a prize, just cause she inspired this thread. (Here's your prize, Kama. It's a handy-dandy teleportation ring to use whenever someone is holding a get-together that is too far away.)

However, to win the "coming from farthest away" prize, you have to prove that you are coming from the farthest away.

Hobbes: What screenshot are you talking about??
Posted by Kama (Member # 3022) on :
[Kiss] Thank you!

And how do I prove I'm the farthest away?
Posted by KarlEd (Member # 571) on :
That's a good question. Largely it's a joke 'cause it begs the question, "farthest away from where, exactly?" I mean, is Poland really any farther away from Hatrack than, say, Utah or Baltimore?
Posted by Kama (Member # 3022) on :
Yes. [Razz]
Posted by Marek (Member # 5404) on :
Hi folks! I'm from Western Kentucky!


Yay!, I'm not the only one from Kentucky.
Posted by Shan (Member # 4550) on :
Grumpily rubs sleepies out of her eyes . . .

ponders posting as shan from Washington State or as another entity from the moon . . .

sips coffee and clicks "add reply"
Posted by Megan (Member # 5290) on :
fugu: Good to know! [Smile] if there is a Bloomington get-together, I'll be there.

Raia: Hello! Stop by the music library; I live there. I have a cot.

Narnia: Grad school here is also kicking my butt, I must say. Probably something I should mention in the grad school thread, though. [Big Grin]

[Wave] to all the Bloomingtonian posters!
Posted by Patsy (Member # 5699) on :
Hi. I'm Patsy, the faithful steed of King Arthur. I live in medieval England and have these coconuts, which were brought by an African swallow from a tropical island somewhere out in the south Pacific.

Do I win the prize for furthest away? I had to come through *time* to get here. My coconuts are almost worn out.
Posted by Sopwith (Member # 4640) on :
Hi, I'm from Greensboro, NC and still haven't met OSC.

Closest to the source, farthest from the knowledge. The story of my life. [Big Grin]
Posted by tonguetied&twisted (Member # 5159) on :
I'm from New Zealand. I think I should get the prize. [Razz]
Posted by Shan (Member # 4550) on :
Well, now - it all depends on where we're measuring from, don't you think?
Posted by tonguetied&twisted (Member # 5159) on :
No. I just think I should get the prize. [Taunt]
Posted by BelladonnaOrchid (Member # 188) on :
Hello, I'm Orchid, otherwise known as Satyagraha, Bella and aparently, to Morbo, Nightshade.

I brought candied chamomile to munch on. [Big Grin] Eat up-I made it myself!

Posted by BlueJacsFan (Member # 6590) on :
Gee, this party started 9 months ago, and folks are still showing up? That's incredible.

Well, I'm BlueJacsFan, and I came from Columbus, Ohio. I brought a pizza casserole. Is there someplace I can warm it up?
Posted by kaioshin00 (Member # 3740) on :
Nobody fret, I've got the candy corn.
Posted by Jenny Gardener (Member # 903) on :
Salutations! My name is Jenny Gardener, and I run a tavern in an alternate Middle Earth. My date tonight is Boromir, Son of the Steward of Gondor, and a doughty fellow. He's got a lovely polished horn. He gives good bear-hugs and is always ready to have a good time.

I've brought some of our best ale and Bilbo Baggins has asked me to share some of his excellent Old Toby pipeweed with you.
