    Wow! Adults serving us??? Free food??

    *pinches herself to make sure she read it right*

    • Junie Ginsburg Junie Ginsburg December 17, 2013

      Yep!  Good food even!  Here is the event listing:

      We held the feast last year too and it was a lot of fun, even after the table disappeared because we maxed out our prim count.  Won’t happen this year though!

    • Junie Ginsburg Junie Ginsburg December 18, 2013

      Oh, dear…

      *scratches her head absently*

      Did we not tell you we were planning this?


      • Martin Malus Martin Malus December 18, 2013

        Exactly how much free food are we giving away? 

        *holds pencil over accounting book*

        • Junie Ginsburg Junie Ginsburg December 18, 2013

          Let’s see…

          There are two turkeys, a goose, a rack of lamb and a bandersnatch roast.

          Then there is stuffing, gravy, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, turnips, bok choy sauted in a light vinaigrette with almonds and currants, and oranges (boy, that was a good crate to come across when the delivery man lost his way to the Brunel). 

          *twists her mouth and looks at the ceiling as she thinks*

          Also, there will be pickled air kraken, fresh-baked bread, sweet potato pie, cinderberry pie, pumpkin pie, cream puffs, sugar cookies, organic free-trade dark chocolate truffles, wine, ale, eggnog, rum, cider from a secret recipe, fresh salted butter, milk, buttermilk, honey, cranberry sauce, barbecue sauce, tartar sauce, awesome sauce and a partridge in a pear tree.

          Aaaaaannnnnd… that’s about it.

          Oh, and I’m still waiting to hear about the dancing bear.

            Please tell me they are not going to eat bear.

              *leans in and eagerly awaits the reply*

              • Junie Ginsburg Junie Ginsburg December 20, 2013


                That’s entirely up to them.

    What a clever idea! I don’t want to push into the scene, but if it would reduce the burden on the Gangplank, I’d be happy to reheat one of our extras into the oven and bring some over some Mummeh-Wrapped Air Kraken with Cinderberry garnish . There’s nothing like the satisified smile of a child enjoy crunchy mummeh wrappings and moist kraken! But if you already have a vision for the event, or want to make sure everyone lives for the full two-hour music set, I’m glad to do this another day. 

    • Junie Ginsburg Junie Ginsburg December 20, 2013

      The more the merrier, Mr. Serpente!  It would be an honor to have you and Lady Cavendish in attendance, and reheated Mummeh would certainly be a treat.  I think the urchins already have a refined sense of caveat cenator, so yet another dish would be welcome.

      • Arthur Serpente Arthur Serpente December 22, 2013

        Miss Ginsburg, you are hospitable not just to urchins, but also your sisters and brothers who share similarly kind hearts and appreciate the hospitality of the platform so offered by this event. If, and this is an if, RL allows it, it’s possible the plates of mummeh-wrapped air kraken could contain individual treats. If I wanted one per urchin, which might be very ambitious  ((see earlier comment about needing RL to behave)), how many urchins would I assume could be in attendance?

        • Junie Ginsburg Junie Ginsburg December 23, 2013

          Oh, apologies for the late response – what a crazy weekend. There seems to be less time in the day for some reason.

          In any case, I never know exactly how many of the little bounders…er…darlings are in the city at any given moment, but would count the event a success if at least ten or twelve urchins were to be in attendance.  If fewer than that show up, we’ll just sell the remainder of the food to bar patrons (otherwise the Squire will get all huffy and I hate it when he does that).

    *reads a book titled ‘To Serve Urchin’*


    Maybe I will stick with the Christmas pudding…
