    Beef log beef log what a treat! A hefty hunk of processed meat. Dipped in mustard, oh what joy! I'm a jolly beef log boy. Hot or spicy mild or plain, I even eat the cellophane. I'll even share some with my dog cause we both love beef log.


    Meat group?
    Meat group.

    Now for the party wagon that is the Tri-Wizard to open up and my extracurricular PAX activities will be all sussed out. :D

    Every year I have no idea how I or anyone I drink with for that matter gets up Friday morning. Especially us who get up early for one reason or another. And now you're just trying to make it that much worse beta.

    Beta has a point though, might as well get primed for the main event while the food is there, as there will be nothing to cushion the blow later in the evening.

    Cronus pace himself?! That I'd like to see...

    I guess it boils down to whether or not I drink along with you.

    I also just bought my ticket. I'm now officially on for pulled pork.

    If ticket sales continue to go bonkers, I'll talk to Barca and see if we can get a couple of the downstairs tables totally reserved for us.

    Are you thinking of selling more tickets than we can fit people upstairs? I'd hate to have some people be stuck away from the main group. It would be weird seeing them below. Like lepers we've cast out into the wilderness.

    If it's possible, what I think would most likely happen is that we'd have a mass majority of the bar with a few tables for the regulars not associated with us.

    What do you mean have a majority of the bar? The bar downstairs? I'm mainly concerned with where people will be seated while eating. That is where people seat their stuff, buttons, and where they spend a lot of time with friends. I don't want us to be split over the multiple levels of Barca. It feels like that would be a bad experience for whoever gets stuck below.

    No, the majority of Barca. There will be plenty of seating, people can move about as they need.

    Don't worry your pretty little head, Cronus. It's all good, sir.

    I know it's a shame, Pillar. At least we can all take amazing heart that BA tried her best! Events are super hard to plan and the alternative was nothing at all, so I feel like I'll be owing somebody a large, platonic and not at all uncomfortable hug.

    Though I keep seeing BA and thinking AB which makes me think Alton Brown which makes me hungry.....

    Curse you BA!

    Am I the only one that wants to be Alton Brown when they grow up?

    There are two BAs. BrokenAngel = she, beta_angel = he. No relation.

    Z, you're a freaking genius. I think that's what I did. Great! Mystery solved! Everybody. Breath a sigh of relief. I've been sorted. I know we were all concerned about this issue, that it weighed heavily on all of us. We can now be confident in the fact that Menolly knows there are two people where once there was one. Brilliant! Note to self: Buy beta_angel a drink at PrePAX Dinner. And yes, I mean it. A manly drink. No froo-froo, girlie crap. Because beta_angel is a MAN!

    Ok..... Everybody wants a drink. That will get kind of... Expensive. And I do plan to attend the Triwizard.

    Here's what I'll do. I'll buy a round for FIVE males, counting BA. We all drink the same thing. So six people total. Froo-froo. Shot. Beer. Whatevs. You have to be male. You have to PM me. The first FOUR males to PM RSVP me will be on the "list."

    Here's the "catch." You have to pin to your shirt, tie to your wrist or wear in your hair a pink bow to 'claim' your drink at a TBD time during the PPD. Hot pink. Light pink. Ribbon. Barrette. Has to be pink. Girlie is good.

    K? K.

    If I were married to the Pre-PAX Dinner, this would be our wooden anniversary.

    Sadly I can't think of anything to get it for such an auspicious occasion. Instead I shall get beta_angel (and myself) a liquid that was aged in wood. That should cover all the bases.

    You are evil. I like that. If I can figure out the PM thingie, I'm in.

    Did I mention that I'm a "Stay at home dad" of twin 5 y.o. girls? Or that when they were babies, I carried a hot pink "hello kitty" diaper bag?

    Gotta run and try to get the girls to loan me a pink barrette.
