    Dharma Voyager: it is a nice way to share with those friends who are far away
    Eliza Madrigal: keeping up with the election via twitter and people would say "Rally @ ___ time in ___!"

    Eliza Madrigal: Your neighborhood sounds like fun
    Pila Mulligan: what is the theme?
    stevenaia Michinaga: "Fratboys and fondue" is the food theme
    Eliza Madrigal pictures inebriated insects
    Pila Mulligan: seriously?
    stevenaia Michinaga: laughs, you think I would make that up?
    Pila Mulligan: I would prefer it actually
    Eliza Madrigal: Ohhh... there is a type of yellow rice made with beer and saffron that's very good
    Pila Mulligan: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: sounds intersting
    Dharma Voyager: I make arros con pollo that way
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, yes same idea!
    Dharma Voyager: both white wine and beer goes in
    Dharma Voyager: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: what is that?
    Dharma Voyager: Cuban chicken and rice
    Pila Mulligan: I'm trying to imagine an invitation design that is not a cartoon
    Dharma Voyager: yumy
    stevenaia Michinaga: well it is, actually
    Eliza Madrigal: or a I'd guess paella can be prepared that way also
    Dharma Voyager: nods
    Dharma Voyager: usually white wine...
    stevenaia Michinaga: very interesting frat boy pics on google
    Dharma Voyager: but pella has changed so much
    Eliza Madrigal: that's a good neighborhood dish... cook it in a garbage can lid... clean of course
    Dharma Voyager: originally I think it was made with rabbit andartichokes
    Dharma Voyager: "traditionally"
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh My
    stevenaia Michinaga: paella wuld be a bit to complex fr this group
    Dharma Voyager: now it has become nearly synonymous with fish
    Eliza Madrigal: adaptations are fun..roasted veggies in rice instead of meat or fish even
    Dharma Voyager: yummy
    Eliza Madrigal: Hm...fun to plan a party I don't have to clean up after
    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe

    stevenaia Michinaga: it's as relaxed a group as we are here every night (and day)
    stevenaia Michinaga: jsut a few more accents in Rl
