Help! My household, already infiltrated by a Limey spy
, is going to be invaded by TWO MORE with funny accents - The Debutante
. Please, please come and help me repel
them, or at least dump some tea into the river. Really! I need help! They are trying to take our constitution, since we don't seem to be using it. Bring your muskets and your letters of marque, so we can tell if you are really privateers, or just ordinary revolutionary types
Davis, California. Chez wertoons. /msg for addy or directions.
Day Weekend, that's the 1st through 3rd of September. wertperch and I will both be working until about 1 pm, me at the local farmer's market, he at the local food co-op. You are welcome to arrive on Friday night, but will have to entertain yer own self in Davis
while we labor
in the morning.
Saturday afternoon: post-market picnic in the park. Throw frisbees, generally act like seventies beach bums. Expect a very foodie
Saturday night: PARTY, practice your groooovy british accent by imbibing beverages of various mind- and mood-altering sorts. Phone Wiccanpiper
and chat with midwestern noderites. Games? We have 'em; Carcassonne
, Settlers of Catan
, the deluxe Rush Hour, and yes we have wireless, so bring your laptop. We hope to have ouroboros the scary mixmaster there, and no I do NOT want to drink something called a Klaproth
Sunday morning: heart-attack fried breakfast, cooked by an only mildly hungover wertperch and Debutante.
Sunday day: if it stays this hot - high nineties - we will make an expetition up to Cache Creek, so jumping in the river and floating down can be the order of the day. This weather lends itself to picnics and lying around in the shade with a tall boat drink.
Sunday night: jam session for those inclined.
What to bring:
- Children! The imp/buddha is now nine, and would love to meet your offspring/nephews/nieces/pirate babies.
Summer clothes - it can still be 95 or 105 degrees in Davis at this time of year.
Sleeping bag and padding - we have a few beds and such for the early bird.
Your favorite libation to share
Musical instruments. That might be nice, we could annoy the neighbours with our filk songs
Your favourite writeup, we may do a noderfest E2 podcast!
What not to bring:
Controlled substances. (DO I need to say this?) No one here wants to be either arrested or deported. Yes, you can bring moral turpitude
if you really want to.
