Just finished having dinner with the SW role-play gang!
masteralida is a fantabulous cook. (Who didn't know that? Raise your hand so I can trask it. Orf, if necessary.)

Tomorrow, I might go acquire some ingredients for liang2 mien4</li> (cool pasta).

Edit, 01:45 CDT Sat 29 May 2004: A rather memorable evening - very cool. Nice running fromwith you all. And no, I'm still not scared.


Edit, 02:00 CDT Sat 29 May 2004: Slight change of plans - my folks called two friends (not the ones they were originally going to meet with, but ones they had invited to their gathering in Chicago). One is OK with Saturday, but the other can only make Sunday. Additionally: there are some severe weather warnings for both Lansing and Chicago; it would mean 4-6 hours less driving back on Sunday (wherein I could only arrive by 11:00 to 13:00 instead of 10:00); and leaving for Manhattan, KS by way of Ames, IA from Chicago would save another 3-4 hours.

I hate to disappoint the gang by leaving early (and truth to tell, I'd prefer not to miss the Blaster Battle), but I've been talked into it. I'd say "cajoled" or "browbeaten", but each is extreme in one direction or the other. :-/ :-)

All hail the master chef!

"You have failed, anemone.
Fear is the little death, I shall not fear!"
(I've been dared to demonstrate this by masteralida and deire... but hey, there's a difference between showing fear and showing speed :-))

Well, you all get another chance, but deire will hafta try harder, acos yernow, I dknot think she's giving the whole "scare Bana" thing her best. ;-)

*blush* Thank you. Next time, I'll try to do something different... not quite so plain!

Strategy helps.... and planning. When running, do not allow yourself to be pinned between us and in front of darana. You will not win.

::jaw drops::
That was plain?
You ever see The Joy Luck Club, ma'am? You're practically Chinese, lady!

Chicken and rice? Pork and sweet potatoes? Yeah, that's like 'daily food' and not 'oh, let's have something fun!' food.

LOL! No, but I read it years ago. I'm Sicilian, silly, I learned how to cook from my mother (though Irish, she's as Sicilian as the rest of them) and aunts. I have very happy memories of spending the night at my aunt's house to prepare for a gathering the next day. My father used to own a deli/pizzeria when he was 16 and I grew up cooking with him, too, perfecting his pizza and his eggplant parm and homemade rolls and bread. I never could understand American holiday meals. To just have a few dishes on the table? Never! Just not done. At least 3 meats, more vegetable dishes than you can count, starches, salads and oh, right - can't forget the pasta dish that starts it all.

Ah, now I'm hungry and I STILL haven't gone food shopping!!

Tell us another!

*chuckle* No, of course not!

That ti2pang4 (roast) was pretty fancy IMHO.

Ma'am, I meant the "noblesse oblige" modesty!
You can coonk circles around all of us put together, and it is very humbling.

If you were just a little older we'd prolly all ask to be adopted. :-D
(In my case, because you're a much more patient cooking teacher than my mom. :-P I think I'd better get myelf scanned for Force constructs in my brain... "ack! I dropped a bit of eggshell! kill kill kill!!")

You doubt me? You doubt me?!

I could have run away if I'd wanted to, but it was a strategic... um, thwapping.

Actually, I thought it was very gracious how you held my arm and let deire do all the trasking, though I think you'd have had a much better chance to hold on to me the other way around (something tells me you can really wind up on that trask). octaviakrysk swings a mean trasker, as I witnessed in the con costume/jewelry showroom. Next time, I really do need to bring a paddle (didn't have room for one with the Special Toy and all the CHOKLIT ;-)).
