Feasibility Study

Incidentally, you can feel free to ignore the second question if you aren't particular. It occurs to me that I didn't include an option for "it depends how I'm feeling that day."

Poll #1206800 Sunday Night Dinners in Northern Virginia: a Feasibility Study

A casual gathering for food and conversation each Sunday evening?

Brilliant! I miss that. I'd come most weeks.

Why not? I might drop by roughly monthly.
10(31.2%)
I live far away/have small children/am otherwise unable to make it, other than on extremely rare ocassions.

Sounds incredibly boring. No interest.

I would like to modify "truly carnivorous" to "I strictly need a high protein source at every meal."

smooches!

Re: ooh
Gotcha! I just realized I hadn't really put in an option for those who are neither veg nor really major carnivores either.

Yay! Mebbe this means I'll get to see you some! I miss our Wednesday coffee.

I miss those dinners. Sometimes it sucks living far away.

Yeah. I know whatchya mean. I love your place, and I wouldn't trade having you guys there for anything but... I sure miss the days when I could just yell if I needed you :)

I'd make the effort to come through the summer, but obviously once the school year starts, it would be harder.

And I really do miss Sunday dinners. And all the stuff we used to do back in the day. I'm so LONELY!

You know, despite getting to live with the best human being on the planet, I get terribly lonely too. I'm an extrovert, and sometimes I need a few more people around or I get despondent.

In fact, if you're awake, you should IM me.

Absolutely YES! I'd be willing to cook sometimes also. Death to all who oppose us.

Sounds delightful! I'd make the trip. :)

Yay! It can't be that far, I don't think, can it? And I figure we'll start around 4 PMish, so that people can have a nice long time to sit (and possibly sober up) before going home again.

Might try for the weekend after this to start. Updates as events warrant!

My only food intolerance is to pepper (black pepper, white pepper, hot pepper, hot sauce, and so forth ... bell peppers are fine). Which wouldn't be such a big deal except that everybody seems to have become completely obsessed with using various peppers to spice food.

For centuries, really, than pepper thing. HOwever, I'm taking note, in case you ever get west again.

I think you should do this, though obviously I won't be able to attend much.

*hug*

Also, you're so right about the Elizabethan Bible. It's extremely practical.

Yeah, I knew you would fall into the extremely rarely category. Frankly, I am honored that you ever visit us at all, considering I have yet to make it to CA my entire life.

Isn't it? It was in fact kitteblue who introduced me to it. Very step-by-step!

citizen_ken is a fishie-tarian. I am an omnivore who often eats vegetarian/vegan meals with no ill effects.

Would this be a revolving venue thing, or a potluck at your place thing?

Well, I can only offer my own house, but if others wanted to have a go, that would be great!

i can't offer to host, but i'd certainly be willing to bring stuff & cook some time. i SRSLY miss those dinners. & also, you are a sooper-jeenyus.

Yeah. I've just been thinking about how lonely I get sometimes, now that we don't all live in big dorm-like clumps like we used to. I do not see why we couldn't make plans for a regular thing again.

Thanks so much for offering to cook some! It'd be nice to have a little help once in a while, although you know how much I love feeding people! I figure other folks ought to have the pleasure from time to time :)

It'd have to be pretty late for me though, I get off work in the hellish Bag Mines at 2200 and it takes approx 20min to get to my car.
