On the heels of last minute's scandal over whether to camp for one day or two, the Freaks and Geeks club is engulfed in flames again. This time the furor is over which day to have this summer's annual "picnic day" in the park.. Some say Tuesday. Others cry out for Thursday. "Just how to choose the best day is proving more difficult than we had anticipated," commented Gordon on his way off to an early morning garage sale. That sentiment was echoed by Anwen, who sees merit in each day and is personally torn between all of them. But what started out as a bit of a joke has turned downright frustrating for others. "I just say pick a day and be done with it!!" says Janine. " I mean they don't call it the freaks and geeks club for nothing, now do they?" she continued. Meanwhile, for some the thought of switching days seems almost akin to switching from a wiki-based social networking software to Joomla. "Let's try a few days and see which one we like the best," one freak and/or geek who didn't want his/her name mentioned in this story stated. Well, it has been a stormy week of scandals and its only Wednesday. It looks like its going to be a rocky summer season.
Film at eleven...A major scandal has broken out in the freaks and geeks "community" and its not even thursday! With June fast approaching the question of how many nights to go camping still dogs the family. A severe backlash erupted as Joanna (the self-proclaimed supreme leader of the freaks and geeks club) issued an edict stating the camp trip had been cut short one night. Emails from Janine, Paul, and others rebuked Joanna nearly immediately. However, it was a strong-worded email from John Abbott that was the talk of the Chippewa Falls coffee shops this morning. John, who is seen as the heir apparent to the freaks and geeks throne, seems to be making a power play for club dominance through his sharply worded emails. Just how this will be resolved is anyone's guess at this point. Stay tuned...
The next major Freaks and Geeks event is June 8th and 9th. Camping at Brunet Island campground. With an attempt to organize a bike ride up the Old Abe Trail for those willing and able to make the ride. By car, the trip looks to be about 25 miles. Since the bike trails follow the old rail lines, which are sometimes a more direct route, the bike trail could be shorter.
Not significantly shorter, though, and so this author plans to be responsible for driving the beer to the camp site.
T-Shirts, the real reason to go camping, are being designed by Joanna and will be available before the event for the cost of $10/shirt. Children's sizes may be available.
Freaks and Geeks, Chippewa Falls Premier Lunch Club. Serving a wide variety of oddities including lentils, chilis, stinky cheeses, and crisps. A lunch club that brings the lunch back into club.
For just over two years the "Freaks & Geeks" have been meeting Tuesdays for lunch. All in a vain attempt to do one thing.... Serve a better lunch. We are a group of friends and neighbors who have built some great memories around some of our social events which have included a group camping trip, annual New Year's Eve party, Halloween party, a talent show and a 70's party and more events to come.
