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.

Are Meaniefest II attendees going to pile into Seattle's pauvre "Elvis"' cab for morale support?  Apparently, Seattle is going after this cabbie for not adhering to the city dress code.  In Groh's case, the red jumpsuit didn't square w/the actual dress code of black pants and blue dress shirt.  Hearing is scheduled for December.


He got a 2 page spread in a Japanese monthly and a mention in a Japanese language travel guide as a highlight of visiting Seattle.  I'm certain it helps him get tips, too.  Ah the perils of fame and fortune.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with parsley sauce, goat cheese garlic mashed potatoes, Galena Cellars Niagra grape wine & Pie Boss's apple crumble topped with Ruth & Phil's sour cream/cinnamon ice cream.

lol.  No I read it in the paper.  Hmmm, let me get the article.

Sunday's paper (Aug 31, 2003) in the Transportation section.  Nice photo but he's got abit more of a receding hairline than the King did.  And his cab is van sized.

Dear Cookie,


I brainstormed you should develop a chocolate with that cajun cane syup and give it a lovely cajun (see me later)  name.


Actually that is what I dreamed last night.  Just though I should let you know.

p.s. Rearrange those words in the top sentence to your liking.

Hey, that's not a bad idea.

Yeah, and being that it is so strong, you wouldn't have to use much.


I amaze myself sometimes, but....that was a dream...so.....can't really take credit.

Ditto what Aussie said. You don't need to bring anything but yourself.

Woo Hoo! Major congrats!!


I know I want some caramels that you made, I'm just trying to remember where I put the flavors list.


A box of your assorted chocs would be great , too.


I received your e-mail, and I will look for the caramel flavors. :-)

I'd be happy to indulge in champagne and foie gras with you. :-) I'll just eat MM's share...

Just like last Meaniefest...everyone wants to sit next to me at dinner.  (And I always thought it was because of my charming personality, rather than because I leave so much food untouched!)

MM, never fear - I shall bravely clean your plate for you, and no one need ever know you didn't eat all your liver before getting dessert!

Nope! My sojourn to the piercing salon shall be strictly in an observational role this time.


And I may purchase a new sparkly. Per Viola Man's request, one to match my eyes.  :-)

You are purchasing a sparkly with which to pierce Viola Man's navel, because it matches your eyes?!?!?!


(thud)


Truly me thinks this must be love.


Life is too short so eat dessert first, especially if it happens to be Cookingmonster's triple cinnamon truffles or her ginger-fig caramels.

HEE! Not even close.


New sparkly for my own navel, and wehn I was debating colors, he said it'd be pretty if I got one that matched my eyes.

A friend of mine is going to France late September, I'll ask her to bring a few cans.

Sounds pretty. :-)


I'd wear whatever you like then. You can't go wrong with black pants and a simple shirt. Chuck, the piercer, will likely be wearing black (don't recall what kind of hair she had, but there were quite a few piercings, obviously)... and she's the perkiest person you'll ever meet! It's a bit of a walk from the hotel area, but it's a nice walk. You pass about 67 coffeeshops, LOL.

Yup.


And I wouldn't be surprised if she COULD deliver a baby.


And RA, we could always take a taxi there!! :-)

My philosophy is that probably no matter what I pack, it will be wrong, so why sweat it?


This is true when we even go to Chapel HIll!!  I can't tell you the number of sweaters we have stopped to buy on the way to a football game!!

Black is safe.  I'm just trying to decide on longsleeves or short, and whether or not to bring a jacket.

Being from Arizona, I always bring a jacket. Heck, if its under 70, to me its cold. (Actually, its fun for me to have an excuse to wear boots and "winter" clothes before January.)
