Alas, it looks like we're not going to be able to make it out there. We were planning on a nice 3-day weekend in DC, but snow is forecast for Monday, which would've been the day we drove back to NY. Don't want to get caught in that. :/

Same here.

Urban clothing lines are sponsoring Fark parties?

As much as I wanted to take a stab at trying out his famous pint-glass-in-the-mouth trick, I'm not sure if I want to go all the way out there now, especially considering the scheduled track work.

Stars_At_Night: The track work that had been scheduled for that weekend has been postponed due to this past week's snow storms.

Metro is postponing Presidents Day weekend track work on the Blue and Orange lines and two emergency response exercises due to last weekend's record snowfall and ongoing recovery efforts.

The major track rehabilitation project that would have closed the Rosslyn and Arlington Cemetery Metrorail stations will be rescheduled at a later date.


Fark yes. Now I have no excuse.

I really really hate to say it, but I'm not going to be able to make it. I had plane tickets already and everything, and I was looking forward to being there, but the weather combined with personal illness (so far I've had a CT scan, Xrays and a bit of bloodwork this week) are going to keep me from being there this weekend. Hopefully in a few weeks I will be able to reschedule. I miss y'all and I will especially miss Bufu.
 
2010-02-12 11:03:27 AM  
I'd like to make it, but the commute from OKC is a bit long.
 
2010-02-12 11:05:57 AM  
i'm pretty sure we'll be there, seeing as how we need to get out of the damn house. those blizzards were no joke.
 
2010-02-12 11:52:15 AM  
The ongoing outpouring of love for Bufu blows my mind. Bittersweet.
 
2010-02-12 12:25:49 PM  
I'm sorry that I'll have to miss.
I'd sure like to come reminisce.
So please, on that night?
Go send him off right.
I think we all owe it to Chris.

Don't be a pussy. Monday's "snow" will be nothing. You guys can make it!

That sucks. I hope you're okay. :(

Everyone else: no excuses! February 13th would have been his 55th birthday. Let's celebrate it as Farkers do.

I know i'm going to sound really ignorant here, but what happened to Bufu?

I'm only going for the Farkettes

/Is that wrong?
 
2010-02-12 01:21:14 PM  
I don't believe I ever interacted with Bufu, yet a party about a dead guy still sounds like more fun than the Tucker Max crapfest Drew is promoting above this.
 
2010-02-12 01:23:46 PM  
I would like to go, but unfortunately DC is pretty far for me. While I might not be there physically, I will be there in spirit. RIP Bufu.

D.C. is the holy grail of hot Farkettes. That's totally fine.

FishyFred: D.C. is the holy grail of hot Farkettes. That's totally fine.

Yeah, but too many of them carry pepper spray.
 
2010-02-12 01:31:35 PM  
well, that's tough about Bufu. He seemed all right.

Speaking of the party, though, I would love to come seeing as how I've just moved to DC and it was, by all aspects, the hardest move. EVAR. Too bad I sold my car before I got up here.

Have fun!
 
2010-02-12 01:33:04 PM  
still planning to come...
 
2010-02-12 01:33:11 PM  
Bah. I'll probably be working until five. If I get back in time I live like four minutes away. When exactly is "later in the evening"?

So much of this.
 
2010-02-12 01:36:25 PM  
I plan to be there.

On another note, each year, at Pennsic, we burn a small (about one meter long) Viking Longship on the lake
as a memorial to people who've died in the preceding year. The shields on the sides are painted with
Insignias/coat-of-arms/whatever
that signify individual people.

I plan to paint a shield for Bufu, so I'm tossing it out
for discussion: What should be on Bufu's shield?

The shields are about two inches in diameter, and the detail I can get is kinda poor, so nothing too fancy.

Plan A.

Cab

Plan B.

Take Orange Line to Courthouse. Get off. Go North across N. Claredon Bvld. Trip over Ireland's Four Courts.

Plan C.

Be lame.
 
2010-02-12 01:39:07 PM  
Hmmm Four courts, eh? They put on an awesome trivia night on Mondays. I shall see if my schedule permits.

DirkValentine: Speaking of the party, though, I would love to come seeing as how I've just moved to DC and it was, by all aspects, the hardest move. EVAR. Too bad I sold my car before I got up here.

Four Courts is directly across the street from the Court House metro stop.

See, that's what I needed. I needed someone to push me, man. I've been in a rut and I want out.

See you there!
 
2010-02-12 01:49:52 PM  
Perfect - I've been walking to Eastern Market for my commute. excellent.

More like a halo with a pint glass forcibly jammed into it. 8-)

Nope. I think I fumbled. "Leave her home" would have been just that much funnier.

believe me. you wouldn't want anything to do with this one. it's like farking a money hole.

That doesn't actually say what happened.

Dang. Keep us posted, and get better!

Still not sure it I'm game to make it myself, working into the early AM tonight and starting work at 4 AM on Sunday...
 
2010-02-12 02:06:34 PM  
Straight walk for me, putting it on the calendar. Eager to see if you are all the same bitter, jaded, funny people you seem on the inter-tubes. :)
 
2010-02-12 02:16:05 PM  
Ah, crap I have to tape at that same time. Drat.
 
2010-02-12 02:19:25 PM  
The gf (still working on a Fark handle) and I will be there. My profile pic is from the last time I saw Chris. It hits extra close to home being the same age.

/Less big (lost 30 lbs), more hairy (full beard) since then
//Orange Line blah blah blah
 
2010-02-12 02:21:42 PM

You would be completely unsurprised at the number of women who think of their lady bits as a "money hole".
 
2010-02-12 02:34:18 PM  
Sorry, I'll be busy hanging out with Tucker Max.
 
2010-02-12 02:35:19 PM  
At 2pm pst I'm breaking out the Bulleit 90 proof and pouring at least one shot for me and another for Bufu here in the other Washington.

Fred that is incredibly sweet. I would like to see pictures of the event and the shield you come up with.

This might sound kind of lame because it involves internet nerds and such, but if you're new to DC, you can make some awesome friends at a Fark party. I came to DC for law school in 2001 and went to my first Fark party in 2005... I've kept in touch with my "internet friends" way more than my "law school friends." Been through graduations, weddings, babies, and now (unfortunately) funerals with these folks. We're good people, I promise!
 
2010-02-12 02:37:15 PM  
I repeat my request that someone scan and post the bar tab. It should be legendary.

One haloed empty pint glass; one haloed full jelly jar.

or substitute a haloed dog for the jelly jar. All three would be awesome if you had the space.
