logandog, I'm wondering where Gordonia is? The only references I can find in association with anything named Gordonia are references to bacteria, and an evergreen plant.

However, I did find one bizarre website...would someone please let me know if I'm nuts - this is a spoof, right??

Brim, that website on Gordonia is hysterical. Makes you wonder how many other loony sites are out there just waiting to be discovered. I loved the "feral biogenetically engineered police dogs" and the "infectious carpal tunnel syndrome". It sounds like it was written by someone who works for the US govt -- they sure got the language and style right. Thanks for the laugh!

Marilyn,
Cabrito Rico ala boo-kay? Could that be baby donkey or goat in a rich sauce served in your bucket? Martha Stewart told me to tell you that you need to return ALL of you MSL magazines to her. I might show up for the party but I think I will stop off at Mc Donalds before hand. Just kidding.

Calamari Fitti would really stink up your house so how about something that would make everyone salivate. Something with truffles and a light cream sauce. Roasted leg of lamb with fresh rosemary and a case of Borollo perhaps?

Oh god I'm salivating. It's a good thing we're about to eat din. "Cabrito rico" is indeed "kid" or baby goat. Maybe some time I'll tell the whole story. Let's just say there was a very high "must eat" factor -- we were the guests of honor and the family was poor.

When the first plate of cabrito was served, my dear, dear friend Linda (who shall someday receive what she deserves) passed it to me as a great honor. Sitting on the plate in all its glory was the spinal column. It's a good thing we weren't high because we had a difficult enough time as it was!

Seriously, you can stink up my kitchen with wonderful food any day. We'll just open the windows.

And to clear up a small misconception, I am ORGANIZING this fete, but it will not be at my house. Another kind and brave fodorite who actually lives in SF is the hostess. I do hope you'll come up!

Oh my superior being...you ate spinal column? That plate of baby eels is looking better by the post!

I would LOVE to come to the gathering of great traveling minds. I do have some responsibilities here at home in San Diego that are quite pressing. I suppose it all boils down to the date.

Thank you for your gracious invitation.

Yes, Marilyn, the 'infectious carpal tunnel syndrome' cracked me up, too! I got a real kick out of that site, but with the fake State Dept header at the top of the page, I just wanted someone else to confirm it was a spoof, LOL.

Oh yeah, and speaking of other 'loony websites just waiting to be discovered'...

A friend of mine in CO sent me this website. Apparently this is a REAL law firm, no joke, but with a major dose of 'tude!! OMG, I would hire these guys in a minute, if I ever lived in CO and needed a kick-a$$ attorney.

(you must read the ENTIRE website....each page has something even funnier than the last one, on it. There's even a disclaimer at the bottom of the home page, telling you in advance to expect the unexpected on that site. However, if you really need to hire their legal services, the serious stuff is on there, too. It's almost worth a trip to CO, just to meet them!)
