Come one, come all, to Ceilidh 2006, the 0th of it's kind. Ceilidh 2006 is aparty I am throwing with the (mild) theme of philosophy, but it will also haveplenty of other stuff so if philosophy is dull to you, you hopefully won't bebored!
Where? At the house of Gunn. Located at 5544 Hobart Street (1st floor) inSquirrel Hill.
Starting When? 1136160000, also known as 28 January 2006 19:00, the secondweekend after classes start at CMU. This is a saturday. It runs until whenever.
What? Food, Games, and talk about philosophy. If you would like to make thingsinteresting, think about some philosopher who is interesting, and try tosummarize their most interesting ideas in a paragraph or too. Anyone who choosesa religious figure gets a swirly in my toilet and does *not* get to talk. Also,I have a microscope, so bring cool stuff to look at (no bodily fluids, thanks).I have two adorable cats, which I can either keep in an alternate location (ifpeople are allergic they can go in the very back room) or let them roam aroundbeing really cute.
How? RSVP via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Then show up.
Things to bring and things not to bring: Games are good. I have illuminati (2sets) and also have super smash brothers (4 player game for the Gamecube). Otherstuff is cool too. I don't keep meat in my place, and will probably be buyingmostly pizza, stuff from the nearby bakery, and healthy stuff for the party. Ifyou want to bring something, you're welcome to. I have a variety of tea and willtry to get a nice cheese selection for the party too. Please do not bring otherpets to the party, nor any ham/pork products. There may be a few people who keepkosher at the party, and will likely be several non-KGBfolk as well.
