Meaniefest - need details??

MEANCHEF's picture

Need details of arrival and departue times and where you are staying:


I have no info for Michael, Pomona, Li, Rhea g + 2, Sally & Phil


And sketchy info for some of the rest of you.


I am trying to firm up reservation for thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  At some point lack of information may result in a meal or two by yourself.


 


Please check http://forums.prospero.com/tp-cookstalk/messages?msg=16047.1.  I am updating as I get information.

If I keep going, I might even be able to fit into one!

What do you wear to get a piercing done? Tracy? RuthAnn?

Depends on what you're piercing! :-)


For the navel piercing, I wore a pair of black elastic-waist pants and a loose-fitting silk sweater. Something that won't rub against your navel or tug on the piercing. I wore hose to dinner that night, too... was a bit of a chore to stay comfortable (also I was bleeding like a horror film... don't take aspirin or any blood-thinning painkiller!).


I wore jeans home on the plane the next day... all 8 hours. It was fine!

Unfortunately, my belly is an advertisement for birth control. No pretty sparkly things there. I'm thinking a small Indian-style nose stud.

You people are CRAZY!  I shall sit in a corner with Assibams, enjoying a quiet cocktail, being thankful I have no more holes in my head.

That corner does sound cozy! Just an idea: I could bring a can of foie gras, which goes extremely well with Champagne (foie gras is okay for Atkins, isn't it?)

Can I confess that I don't eat fois gras?  I know that's an unforgivable sin around here, but never developed a taste for the stuff.  I'll sip on my wine while you nibble on the goose liver!

Oooppss, now that you mention it I do remember! Okay forget the greasy liver, we'll find something else for sure. Wine it is, then - liquid diet.

Easier, I do not think she will get pierced, so she will probably be in our corner right from the beginning. Right, Cooki?

Absolutely. I have a terrible fear of needles. When I did finally get up the courage to get my ears pierced, I actually fainted when I tried to get up out of the chair. It was weeks before I stopped feeing queasy.

Now about that foie gras...I'll barter chocolates for extra goose liver.

Edited to say: just in case I missed anyone by email, I'm planning on bringing samples to Meaniefest, but should anyone want extra chocolates I'm happy to take orders for boxes too. I just passed inspection last week. I should be getting my license any day now.

D'oh! Read at leisure, repent in haste.


But I have to fix something here, folks... and I apologize in advance for busting out the spelling police... but it's foiE gras (fat liver), not foiS gras (fat time).


Though with all that food I expect we'll have both, LOL.

Well, hell... I don't eat the stuff, so don't suppose it matters how I spell it!  (But I shall try to remember from now on...)

You can definitely have my fois gras for chocolates!  I still drool when I remember how wonderful they were.  I'm resisting ordering, because I am trying soooo hard to lose half a Sallyl, but you make it very difficult!  (Besides, if I trade fois gras for chocolates, doesn't that give me some sort of negative calories???)

Thanks Michael!

The small business owner thing is hard - the actual product is only a small part of everything you have to do. Still I'm quite excited about giving it a shot.

The name of the company is Samaki Chocolates. It was the name of a pet we had when I was little, and is also the title of one of my father's books, so I thought I could honor him by using it for my business. I also like the sound of the word. web-site is under construction. I hope to have it up in the next couple of weeks.

Err - about your father's book - Samaki Chocolates? I see there was a chocoholic already in your family, eh? ;-)

Samaki is  the  Swahili word for fish according to google. Sounds better as samaki your lips chocolate.
