Alright, the Elmores are having a big blowout for 4th of July at their place in Sewanee, Tennessee. We all want some more kick-ass Objectivists to attend. What will it take to get some of you all to come and join in the festivities? Come on people, it's a question of values. How often to you get to be around people that share your fundametal premises, and oh yeah there will be a little bit of drinking, good food, maybe some dancing and you might be even be persuaded to play "I never". We might even discuss a little philosophy. And before you commit, I call the big blue couch near the fireplace.
Oh gawd, am I going to have to fight the High Priestess for the guest room? May I just interject that he doesn't cook. :P
The July issue of Gastronomic Meditations will feature berries and cream, so methinks there are combinations aplenty to satisfy our red, white and blue theme. :) I know there's a martini in that somewhere.
Patriot Martini: 6 parts chilled Vodka (I'm a Ketel One man personally) 2 parts Sour Mix Juice of 2 Fresh Lemons Shake ingredients with ice and strain into chilled martini glass. Float Blue Curacao & Grenadine.
I go away for a day's work and I return to scissors and loincloth. God, I love this group!
Luke, we have very big couches, sleeping bags, an extra bed (besides the one that Uber-chef Jennifer has reserved in perpetuity and which can be shared by anyone Uber-chef deems worthy), and we have local hotels a few miles away. So whatever blows your dress up.
Stephen, if you decide to come and be our official cocktail man, I must warn you to sleep with one eye open because ... well, nevermind, you're a big boy. (Jason, stop repeating the word cocktail, you'll get dizzy!)
Kelly will have to confirm dates, but I think they are Friday, July 1, through Tuesday morning, July 5. Anyone is welcome for part or all of festivities.
I hope my post did not give the impression that there is unlimited space at the Elmore's. There is a hotel fairly close. You will have to check with the Elmore's as far as what is available at their place. I might be willing to pick up from the airport whoever decides to attend. You would probably have to fly in to Atlanta Thursday night and then we would leave to the Elmore's Friday morning.
I have a queen-size sleeper couch and then there is some space in my bed for whoever is brave enough to venture that route (Jason you already live in Atlanta). So I could probably accomodate 3 people, then we would come back to Atlanta Tuesday morning.
If money is an issue we might be able to start a fund that will enable you to attend, but you have to be fun and entertaining :-)
PS Stephen Knoll you are on many people's lists as requested to attend, we can only give the reasons in person.
Hooray! I just made our hotel reservations at the Best Western. The phone number is: (931) 924-2268. We got the last suite available, but they do have regular rooms and cabins of some sort. The woman I spoke to recommended making reservations soon.
So, we'll be there! I'm very pumped. Are there any fireworks shows that weekend? I mean, besides the naughty indoor type?
Oh my (thud)!!! [Recovers senses 5 minutes later] um err well Jennifer, you certainly know how to perk up a man's day. I'm going to have a cold shower after this :-)
Sadly, A is A and I've got a face not even a mother could love. Judging by the photos however you'll have your eyes full admiring Aquinus and the other SOLO stallions, so not to worry :-)
How do I look in a lemongrass skirt? Um that would be the stuff nightmares are made of. But I'm suspicious... what is it with this desire to clothe men in silly outfits - Hmmm???
You see the last American lady I was amorous with did her best to get me to wear to my lab-coat and nothing else to a rendezvous. The relationship didn't go anywhere, we just weren't made for each other. I live on planet Earth and she was a California Native with agrophobia whose ex-husband had just left her for another guy. She never explained to me why, after having put her through all that, she was still living at her ex-husband's place, nor yet why we were having our first date in his living room. And that was the sane part of the conversation (and no I'm not exaggerating - you can't make this shit up)!!!
She too professed to being a galloping gourmet. Say - you've never called yourself Katina have you??? You see it's been about a week since the anonymous phone calls stopped... :-) :-) :-)
I'm starting to think that, with 3 strikeouts from as many "at bats," I'm not destined to get along romantically with American women. On the bright side I've never had a dull moment in the presence of an American lass - several frightening moments to be sure, but never a dull moment. I seem to recall you finding the tale of my most recent "encounter" highly amusing - so I'd thought I'd regale you with another. The least I can do in return for the thrill I got from contemplating you last message :-) :-)
Anyway forgive me for being a gun-shy but I'm thinking the best strategy is to drive down to Tennessee, get absolutely shit-faced and make a fool of myself on the 4th of July. The rest I shall leave in the lap of Jose Cuervo and friends!!! :-) :-) :-)
Ahem - assuming of course that Mr & Mrs Elmore have no objections to a cheap, drunken, kiwi snoring on their living room floor.
Man, this is shaping up to be one happening get-together! But I dare anyone at the gathering to pronounce loudly and clearly the sexiest, most provocative word the SOLO forums have ever seen: VERIDICALITY.
You are certainly welcome to join us and sleep wherever you want and/or are invited. Btw, if you ply the lovely Ms. Iannolo with some strategic shots of whatever, you might just not be sleeping in a tent! ;-)
Oh yeah, and I'd love to talk with you about what I think is both of our passions: evolution. Love it!
