Fark Party
Host: CatherineM
Description: Houston Fark Party - 90 day performance review
Date/Time: September 30, 2017 - 03:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: Timanous will have been (future perfect tense) living in Houston for just shy of 3 months for this event. Come out and eat some BBQ and have a few drinks to hear his thoughts on Whataburger, hurricanes, local beer, mosquitos, HEB, humidity, "cheese sauce," traffic, and everything in between.

We can meet up for a late lunch at Papa Charlie's BBQ on the East End of downtown (2012 Rusk St Houston, TX 77003) and then walk over to Neil's Bahr down the street for the rest of the evening. You are welcome to come for one or both!
 
Meet at: Neil's Bahr
2006 Walker St, Houston, TX 77003, USA

It's what Timanous called the queso on his plate the first time we went for Tex-Mex hahaha.

It's too late for me to ask for time off but it's a Saturday so... I guess I can make an appearance, I'll just have to head home pretty early.

I feel like that Lil'Abner character who was followed around by a cloud that kept zapping him.

I thought my bad luck ended when my couches and refrigerator came to rest after the flood waters drained out of my house, but nooo.

thinking about looking for it is starting to turn into a running gag

I won't be there but I hope you guys have a ton of fun and do please remember one thing (because for whatever reason I feel the need to be a mother hen to total strangers)...

What you see and read on here is purely cerebral and what you experience when meeting for the first time is a mix of visceral and cerebral stimulation, don't mistake awkwardness or shyness for aloofness or discontent, if that should be the case.

I say this because I've met people from online forums and it was a huge shock that they weren't the person I imagined because it's not their voice I read on the screen but their words in MY voice and the reactions I imagine are what I would do...just don't use that against anyone when it turns out the reality isn't what you fantasized.

Have fun you guys! Be safe and don't forget to upload all the sex tapes. :D
 
2017-09-23 08:18:04 PM  
And what time exactly is considered a late lunch
 
2017-09-23 08:57:51 PM  
darn. I have a flight out of H-Town on 29th. Wish I had discovered Fark sooner.

Just... email me or facebook me or something if you have any questions or concerns about attending. If you've made it this far in life, to the year 2017, with computers and smartphones and dating apps and you still feel weird about meeting people from the internet, get with it. No one's going to hurt you and a lot of us are exactly like you would think. If anything, I'm funnier in person than I am on TFD.

Question:

If open nuclear warfare starts between now and Saturday, is the party still happening?

I need to know how much Rad-Away to bring.
 
2017-09-29 09:23:16 AM  
I know everyone is lazy and you'll probably drag your ass out of bed at noon and feel like crap and not want to interact with strangers but that's plenty of time to have some coffee, put on deodorant, and drive over to the East End to eat BBQ! If you happen to look up at the clock and realize you've been surfing Wikipedia pages for anal fissures and it's already 3:00pm and you feel like, f*ck it, it's not worth it.... don't give in. It will be worth it. The bathroom graffiti alone is worth it. And I'll buy you a beer.

When you pull up to the bar, you should see Timanous standing outside as the welcoming committee:

As you walk through the door, take a look around to see if you recognize Mirrorz' sweaty neck:

And don't make any direct eye contact with Shostie,  just keep smiling no matter what:

I SHOULD be able to make it by three. We're going car shopping in the morning so if that's all wrapped up I'll be there on time.
 
2017-09-29 03:57:05 PM  
I think we'll be at the bar around 3:00pm.

Lunch is like... whenever. Noon. One. Two. Whenever we get there haha.
