Yes. There was an article about Maggie Cheung in the Times magazine over the weekend. The title is "Why Isn't Maggie Cheung a Hollywood Star?"

People playing this game should know now to get all their answers by reading the New York Times.

Yes. The name I was thinking of is Sisi.

Interesting. I don't know this one at all. I tried a Google search and then was sidetracked into doing something else.

I didn't know it either. I found it on Google.

Why is this thread so wide?

Yk: I forgot to answer you. No, I didn't go to Longwood Gardens. I didn't feel like taking the long drive by myself. I hate having to drive back in the dark. Spring will be better.

111op: Maybe I would remember you from the GTG, but not by the name 111op! I don't know whether you're male or female, young or old, though I think you're young, and probably female (though I used to think male). Were you the person who was a grad student in psych at NYU?

I think that the thread is wide because of your posts on the Norwegian painters -- the thread does this when there's not a space between characters, and I guess the links were long.

No, I wasn't the psych student. Was there one? I don't remember.... Well, I guess I'm younger than most who went -- I'm in my early 30s. I'm not sure if you remember, but I e-mailed you to say "I'd like to come, but I'm not really a Fodorite." At that time I had only started posting.

I guess I can call myself a Fodorite now.

I'm going to create a new thread.

I do defintely remember that e-mail, but then I don't remember whether I ever matched up the person who arrived with that e-mail. Or, if I did, I thought it was that grad student from NYU. But maybe she wasn't a grad student in psych. I may have her field wrong. she was from Thailand, I think. Or if not, she was from elsewhere in southeast Asia. Was that you? Are you m or f?

Male here. I actually don't remember that meeting while, but at one point I had all sorts of theories (just joking).

By the way, did NYCFoodSnob come to that gathering? She sounds like quite a character.

And did elaine? I guess these are the only people I even have a vague idea that they're from NYC.

I think you were at the far end of the table from me. As far as I know, NYFoodSnob did not reply to the e-mail or attend, but of course people could e-mail under names that are different from their forum names. Elaine couldn't make it, for some very specific reason. I'd met her at the previous NYC GTG (the only other one I attended), and we corresponded about last year's GTG, but then something came up. We should have another one this winter.

You might be right -- I think that I was a little late as well. If I remember correctly, there was one other man there. I just remember having some sort of conversation with someone who was going to play violin in Prague (if this sounds right.... And ha, you wonder why I'd remember something like that?). I don't know what moniker she posts under. And I remember a woman from the travel industry. And there's another woman I sort of remember, but I don't want to say what I thought there.

Anyway, it was interesting.

She posts as AnnMarie, I think. I think she taught herself Czech because she fell in love with the country. I wasn't near her during dinner, but we talked quite a while after the dinner. We live pretty near each other and thought of having a more local GTG but then never did.

Interesting -- I don't recall seeing that moniker ever on this forum. I keep telling myself that I'm not spending that much time here, so that must be why.

<<And there's another woman I sort of remember, but I don't want to say what I thought there.>> I hope that wasn't me.

I do remember someone from a travel industry--blonde? a planner for corp trips I think? I sat near Sandi, who ended up giving me some advice re Turkey before my trip. She has her own business planning Africa trips, but I'm not sure that she had it yet last year. There were other musicians, by the way, but they dropped by late and had to leave to perform in a concert, I think at the 92nd ST Y, but I could be wrong about that.

I don't remember if the woman from the travel industry was blonde. No, don't worry -- the other woman wasn't you. She was fine (so I say now ).

You're right about the musicians who showed up later. I remember that vaguely. I think that the music was baroque or something. I thought they were playing in Brooklyn though, but I'm probably wrong.

Don't forget that you still need to give us a clue (on the new thread).
