[Groop] Re: Stuff from M.E., etc.

Hi Folks!

Man, has it been quiet!  And I thought only I had slowed down my posts.

Goalie Lover:  If you have an almost-completed set of Groo cards, you send
in a request for the ones you need to Mark with a SASE and all of your extra
cards (esp. #1, #19 &#20) and he will send them to you (unless you need #1,
#19, or #20-maybe)  You need to start reading the Dark Horse Groos so you
know about this stuff!  (btw, I think Groo would have made a great goalie.
His hand-eye coordination is unmatched and he is already so ugly, the fact
that he would be too stupid to wear a mask wouldn't really affect anything.
Of course, he might have had trouble with the swords replacing the gloves,
and cutting the pucks in half as they flew by might not keep them from going
into the net.  Hey!  Maybe sometimes only half the puck would go into the
net and you would have scores of 2 to 1.5!)

Nate:  Tell the Sabertooth guy you are booked up because you promised your
buddy George (Lucas) that you'd keep all you dates open for him.

GrooFest People:  Only a couple of you let me know how things are going with
your arrangements to attend the San Diego Con, so I am totally in the dark
as far as where most of you are with that.  Ditto on whether you want of
Groop t-shirt or hat or button that would have "Groop" on it, but nothing
"Groo" (e.g. Artwork, Logo) (per previous posts that refer to Mark's post
about the mousepads being a one-time thing)  [Mark, I assume putting the
word "Groop" on something is OK?]   If we do that, we can make enough up for
anyone in the Groop who wants one, not just San Diego Con/GrooFest

Non-GrooFest people: Kevin has set up a separate GrooFest 2000 mailing list
so we wouldn't clutter up the regular list with stuff about something only a
relative handful of people were going to do.  But volumn is down so low,
what the heck?  Besides, maybe some newbies who didn't know about it will
want to come.

And, hey!  Billy Forsko!  Did you get on the list?  Anyone who can get all
21 questions right the first time belongs on this list!!!!  (They also
belong in a straight jacket, and a rubber room right in between mine and

And boy oh boy, I can hardly wait 'till I can get my Groo Bookends.  They
will be perfect for keeping various Groo things from falling off shelves.
And I can dust it with my Groo dish towel*, which I will also stuff in my
mouth so i don't give away the ending after I have read the end of Groo
"Mightier Than the Sword"   Mark telling us it is a surprise ending has me
on pins and needles, since this has been one of my favorite stories as it
is!!!!!!!!  Ack!!  I'm hyperventlating!!!  Where's that papper bag???
Take care all -Gary G.
