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!

Doesn't that fall around the Labor Day Furrtacular you were talking about a while back? When is Labor Day anyway?
Aug. 14th, 2008 01:41 pm (UTC)
I think it's Monday the 1st, but while I was talking about the labor day thang, I wasn't actually *planning* the labor day thang (I think some maniacal people are, but not me personally...)
Aug. 13th, 2008 10:20 pm (UTC)
I'll be there, if invited.
Aug. 14th, 2008 01:41 pm (UTC)
The last time you came over you really upset me. I'm not sure, I'll have to think about it.

If that's labor day weekend, I should have that Monday off from classes. I might be able to sneak away and drive 3 hours to Austin for the weekend. :P If you want to put up with me again, of course. ;) My only request would be that I could stay at least one night, and possibly bring my kitty (Darck) with me. He's never been to a furmeet before.

It might be better to look at this as "birthday party" rather than "furmeet," but I don't see that as being a problem.
Aug. 14th, 2008 03:41 pm (UTC)
Well yeah, a birthday is what I meant. :P Is there anything in particular I should get for Whines? Or would he be happy with food? :)
Aug. 14th, 2008 03:44 pm (UTC)
Food is great :) Stupid coyote stuff, artificial banana flavoring stuff (I don't understand it, either), are all good, but honestly, we're both trying to slim down a little on the "stuff" front.

Oh--question--I saw a Kimba boxed set at half price books for $20 or $24, I can't remember which. Do you want me to pick it up and throw it into the "fob these off on the lion" pile, if it's still there?
Aug. 14th, 2008 03:50 pm (UTC)
Um...well, as far as Kimba goes, I already have the first two DVDs, but there's a total of 4 for them, so I'd like just 3 and 4 if that's a possibility.
Aug. 14th, 2008 03:53 pm (UTC)
I dunno, it was a boxed set--I'm not sure if it was even formatted the same way as the editions you have.
Aug. 14th, 2008 03:04 pm (UTC)
Also, what's the labor day thing? I don't recall seeing anything about that...unless I'm not supposed to. >_>
Aug. 14th, 2008 03:26 pm (UTC)
It was an idea I was toying with, not actually implementing, and I've gotten a bit derailed by RL lately (three birthdays in August, two church events lined up, and the bookshelf project have eaten away at my fragile sanity something fierce!)
Aug. 14th, 2008 03:29 pm (UTC)
The basic idea for the labor day event (could be any time, labor day just seemed logical, but one of the players can't play) was to have a big, wandering fur-meet at all the main social people's houses - us, Fizz & Itza, Sparrow. I think it's still a good idea, but I'm back-burnerign it a bit right now.
Aug. 14th, 2008 03:42 pm (UTC)
I see. Sounds fun. ^_^ Hopefully I can make it.
Aug. 14th, 2008 03:45 pm (UTC)
Maybe we can try for some time in December, when the college kids are off work...
Aug. 14th, 2008 03:50 pm (UTC)
Well, I still want to try and make this one, but as far as any others go, they probably won't work until Christmas.
Aug. 14th, 2008 03:56 pm (UTC)
I'm not planning anything for labor day weekend beyond Whines's birthday. I'd never really gotten into the "planning" phase before someone went nuts with the idea and ran off with it, if there IS something happening in Austin I'll let you know, but Whines and I aren't organizing that one, and I haven't heard anything concrete about it.
Aug. 14th, 2008 04:00 pm (UTC)
Well, I'd still like to be there for Whines's birthday.

You know, if you don't want me to come, just tell me. :P You don't have to beat around the bush with it. :P
Aug. 14th, 2008 04:17 pm (UTC)
I didn't say that at all, I just said we weren't doing the big labor day thang that Itza mentioned earlier, and elaborated on what it was going to be--I thought you were thinking we were planning a big furry thing that weekend, which we weren't. Iff'n I didn't want you to come, I would have locked the entry, of course you're welcome!
Aug. 14th, 2008 04:32 pm (UTC)
lol I know, I'm just messing with you. :P I want to be there for the b-day party.
Aug. 14th, 2008 04:41 pm (UTC)
Okay...*fret* pure-text communication can really lead to some misunderstanding, it's awful damned hard to convey "hah-hah" voice tone in a typed sentence...

As they seem to be on the same actual day, that's fair :)

It is now on my calendar, and if I can make it, I will.
Aug. 25th, 2008 06:02 pm (UTC)
Itza and I will come. We'll bring fruits, veggies, and/or bread. Let us know if you need us to narrow that down a bit more; our current plan is to just grab whatever strikes us from the supermarket that afternoon.
Aug. 25th, 2008 07:35 pm (UTC)
Perfect--I'll have a brain-organizing post on Wednesday.
