Fondue? Aging coyotes?

Okay, so, Whines turns slightly older in a few weeks. Who wants to join us for FONDUE?!? on Saturday, August 30?

Let's say the doors are going to open at our den at 6:00.

Want to participate? Any of the following would be welcome:
Fresh veggies in bite-sized pieces (carrots, brocolli, mushrooms, squash...)
Crusty, chewy bread in bite-sized pieces
Fresh fruit in bite-sized pieces (apples, strawberries, bananas)
Various meats (thin-sliced tuna, chicken, beef, shrimp, tiny little sausages and pre-cooked meatballs)
Cheap cheesecake isn't a bad option, either
Exotic dipping sauces would be welcome

Anyone that's ambitious enough to bring a fondue pot full o'stuff will be welcome, too! Or just has a fondue pot, I've got a few of 'em, but probably not enough. We have LOTS of fondue forks, but could use a few more fondue plates (these are frequent Goodwill finds, they usually are round plates with one central shallow area and 4-6 little "sub-dishes" around them.)

I'll try to have the following: One seafood soup fondue, one cheese fondue, one vegetarian fondue, and a dessert (white chocolate), and several sauces (probably wasabi, horseradish, Green Goddess, off-the-shelf thai peanut, and cream of balsamic.)

Let me know if you want to play, and particularly if you want to bring something!

Elections 2008

McCain's new platform: "If you change your mind, I'm the first in line, honey I'm still free, take a chance on me."

NPR had an article on the Prez Candidate's top 10 favorite songs. McCain's--well, I'm going to have to reevaluate my entire take on him--was ABBA's "Dancing Queen."

Imagine him walking down the halls of the white house whistling it, the secret service looking awkwardly at each other. Think--he probably sings this in the shower, at least occasionally.

What does this mean? I don't know. I don't think any political consultant would have said, "okay, number one, write in 'Dancing Queen'" That's...too much.
