Come one, come all, to Ceilidh 2006, the 0th of it's kind. Ceilidh 2006 is a party I am throwing with the (mild) theme of philosophy, but it will also have plenty of other stuff so if philosophy is dull to you, you hopefully won't be bored!
Where? At the house of Gunn. Located at 5544 Hobart Street (1st floor) in Squirrel Hill.
- If you want a dose of philosophy, come at 1138489200 (28 January 2006 18:00 (6PM))
- If you want to primarily hang out, come at 1138492800 (28 January 2006 19:00 (7PM))
What? Food, Games, and if you come for the first hour, talk about philosophy. If you would like to make things interesting, think about some philosopher who is interesting, and try to summarize their most interesting ideas for discussion. Anyone who chooses a religious figure or a theologan gets a swirly in my toilet and does *not* get to talk. For the rest of the gathering, I have a microscope, so bring cool stuff to look at (no bodily fluids, thanks). I have two adorable cats which will roam around being really cute. I also have some games, but if people want to bring yet more, that'd be cool.
How? RSVP via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Then show up. I repeat, please RSVP so I know how much food to get.
Things to bring and things not to bring: Games are good. I have illuminati (2 sets) and also have super smash brothers (4 player game for the Gamecube). Other stuff is cool too. I don't keep meat in my place, and will probably be buying mostly pizza, stuff from the nearby bakery, and healthy stuff for the party. If you want to bring something, you're welcome to. I have a variety of tea and will try to get a nice cheese selection for the party too. Please do not bring other pets to the party, nor any ham/pork products. There may be a few people who keep kosher at the party. I have a selection of tea.
