Fig Pooper Pants: Tomorrow's schedule

Did you ever see the SpongeBob episode where he throws a house party?

It's called Party Pooper Pants. Our hero buys a Plan Your Own Party Kit and takes it from there:
[Speaking to Gary the Snail] The Plan Your Own Party Kit warns that unsupervised parties can lead to disaster. That's why I've taken the liberty of devising a schedule! 
8:00-8:05: Guests arrive.
8:05-8:15: Opening remarks and general discussion.
8:15-8:27: Craft corner, followed by name tag distribution.
At 8:27, we begin the qualifying rounds for our cracker-eating slash tongue-twister contest.
9:07: Running charades.
9:38: Charity apple-bob.
9:57: Electric jitterbug dance marathon, ladies' choice
At 10:09, things start cooking as I dig into my world-famous knock-knock joke vault!

As might be expected, things don't go so well, with overscheduling being the main problem. (SpongeBob also locks himself out of the house, but this turns out to be a good thing because then the guests can rage on and actually enjoy the party while SpongeBob is eventually arrested and hauled off for attempting to break in.)

Proving that watching SpongeBob can indeed be an educational experience, I will refrain from such a complicated mapping of my Thanksgiving day. But we do have a schedule:
3:00 Badminton
4:00 Cocktails and appetizers
5:00 Dinner
Sound good?
