Housefilk May 7

We’re host­ing a house­filk at the Cas­tle on May 7. Any­one who can get here is invit­ed to attend. If you need crash space, let us know.

(Hey, I don’t have a music icon! Hmph. Must make/acquire one.)

It does­n’t mat­ter if you don’t know what filk is. It’s the folk music of sci­ence fiction/fantasy fan­dom, but it’s also “any­thing sung (played) at a filk.” So if you like mak­ing music, or hear­ing music, come on out. There are a few reg­u­lars who don’t sing, so you should­n’t feel pres­sured to DO any­thing but be good company 🙂

Please email tech­nomom @ live­jour­nal dot com for direc­tions. Remind me of who you are if I most­ly know you from LJ!

Din­ner starts at 6 pm, music around 7.

We’ll be grilling burg­ers and hot dogs. Please join us for din­ner and bring a side dish or some such thing. We will pro­vide some fin­ger foods, cof­fee, iced tea, var­i­ous hot tea options, and water as well as paper plates, dis­pos­able cups, etc.

Please tell us ahead of time if you have any spe­cial dietary needs — vegan/vegetarian, food aller­gies, etc. We do ask that dish­es be labeled with their ingre­di­ents, for the sake of those who do have allergies.

There’s a key­board (not the big fan­cy sort, unfor­tu­nate­ly) set up in the liv­ing area, and any­one who wish­es to do so is more than wel­come to play it. We have a few hand-per­cus­sion sorts of instru­ments as well. Sam would prob­a­bly be will­ing to per­mit some­one to use his acoustic gui­tar if asked.

We have four cats and a very large, long-haired dog in res­i­dence. If you’re aller­gic to them, please take your anti­his­t­a­mines in advance. We’ll vac­u­um the uphol­stery and so on, but the hair is per­va­sive despite our efforts.

All but one pet is very kid-safe. Guests sel­dom see that cat, as she prefers to hide upstairs.

Smok­ing is verboten.

The house is NOT baby-proofed, but we love hav­ing guests of all ages. We do have ONE Pack-n-Play that can be used for vis­it­ing babies who need a place to sleep.

We’ll try to pro­vide a place upstairs for teens/kids to “hang out” and maybe play PS2 games if they want to do so. We live in a qui­et area with almost no light pol­lu­tion, so there have been times when teens choose to roam around out­side, even. (No, really!)

Addi­tion­al chairs would be appre­ci­at­ed, as we have less seat­ing out­side than in.

And we have wire­less net access with a laser print­er avail­able for print­ing lyrics you meant to bring but forgot 🙂
