OMG. Once a week we have dinner at our neighbors. We look forward to Dinner at Our Neighbors. It’s possible that I am the wealthiest person on the planet. My neighborhood is Sublime. And the food is really f*&King good. ObLaDee… .
After a brief intermission, we are back at The Dinner Party. Just to refresh your memories, here’s the complete conversation, beginning with the 12th Doctor. Scroll down to see what Mr. Big Food’s guest, Chuck Berry, had to say this morning. And be SURE to play the video of the song! [Next up, that rich and
Elaine Benes (THE J-MAN): Uncle Leo? –Common knowledge of Seinfeld Casey Neistat (Kat & Tony): Look back at your life. It’s always the hardest times that made you who you are. I really remember – you know, again, 16-years-old in the kitchen of a really dumpy seafood restaurant getting paid $8 an hour – I
Our parents are older than we. Mama has stories to tell. The girls listen. Caroline knows Grandpa Bobby. And “Phen has a hand-made woooden toy…” I am going to go to The Promised Land, and then drive to Mama’s to see the Little Fella. 🙂
Casey Neistat (Kat & Tony): Look back at your life. It’s always the hardest times that made you who you are. I really remember – you know, again, 16-years-old in the kitchen of a really dumpy seafood restaurant getting paid $8 an hour – I really remember what would happen when I acted differently around
The Doctor (Daughter C): Well, perfect to look at, maybe. And it was, it was beautiful. They used to call it the Shining World of the Seven Systems. And on the continent of Wild Endeavour, in the mountains of Solace and Solitude, there stood the Citadel of the Time Lords. The oldest and most mighty race in
From Kat: Hi Mom! I don’t think this matters a ton but, the “fictional rodent” description isn’t quite accurate. Muad’Dib is a human character sort of like a Jedi or a magical Bedouin from the sci-fi book “Dune” and movie of the same name. The character’s original name is Paul Atreides, and he takes on
[Updated again: Please see this for a much better description of Muad’Dib’s … um, personhood. Note also that I have re-corrected the spelling of this guest at our dinner party.] [Updated misspelling of the Rodent’s name. Life is confusing sometimes.] Next up. A Doctor. Ten, I think. But I’d have to get up and go
The Fifth Doctor Who (Daughter C): An apple a day keeps the… . Oh, never mind. From Kinda (February 1-9, 1982; Peter Davison as “Doctor Who”) Fred Sanford (Mr. Big Food): We could have a little pork and beans now and a little zucchini later. Or a little zucchini now and a little pork and beans
Next up… The Fifth Doctor Who (Daughter C.) Fred Sanford (Mr. Big Food): We could have a little pork and beans now and a little zucchini later. Or a little zucchini now and a little pork and beans later. Or if you like the pork and beans, you can have them and I’ll take the
I am impressed by the current round of players in The Dinner Party Game. I remember having to coax and cajole folks to submit their quotes in a timely fashion when we played before. Not so this! Here’s the J-Man’s response to Miss Mary Lamb, gentle soul that she was. (Next up. Fred Sanford (Mr. Big Food).)
Our dinner party conversation continues… . I really should link to the history of this family game. But it’s late (OMG it’s almost 10pm!) and it’s cold and I’m plumb wore out after having driven to Texas and back. And full. That soup with the mussels and whatnot that Daughter C and the J-Man welcomed
J.L. Austin (The J-Man): It is worth bearing in mind, too, the general rule that we must not expect to find simple labels for complicated cases… however well-equipped our language, it can never be forearmed against all possible cases that may arise and call for description: fact is richer than diction. “A Plea for Excuses,” Proceedings
In reverse order, here’s the conversation so far… [The TRADIS as] Idris (Daughter C): Biting’s excellent. It’s like kissing. Only there’s a winner. Doctor Who Season 6, Episode 4 “The Doctor’s Wife” written by Neil Gaiman Andrew Jackson (Mr. Big Food): War is a blessing compared to national degradation. Hesiod (Marica): For those who practice
From that infallible source: The Works and Days (Ancient Greek: Ἔργα καὶ Ἡμέραι, Erga kai Hēmerai)[a] is a didactic poem of some 800 lines written by the ancient Greek poet Hesiod around 700 BCE. At its center, the Works and Days is a farmer’s almanac in which Hesiod instructs his brother Perses in the agricultural arts.
The Twelfth Doctor Who (Caroline): Oh, what’s this? Well, are you gardeners? I hate gardening. What sort of person has a power complex about flowers? It’s dictatorship for inadequates. Or to put it another way, it’s dictatorship. Come on! Chop, chop! The Doctor will see you now. You can view the clip here: https://youtu.be/TKSEBEhXCt4 Hesiod
