Oh god, where do we stay?

Or perhaps it's traditional to just pass out in a field somewhere for the night?

Also, who's going?
Oxygenee
PM me or Marc.
Steve
I will be there! And I told you to contact Marc weeks ago…
Steve
Facebook event page here.
verawench
I know, I know, I'm rubbish! Only now getting my act together.

Really looking forward to it.

Oxygenee 10 year anniversary party at Le Soliat on the Friday night….we're drawing up the guest list now…
Patlow
I so want to be on that list. I just can't justify $1,200+ for a plane ticket. I think I paid $600 last time.

C'mon. The drinks are on me.
Patlow
The Mrs just green-lighted a solo trip, so now that there is only one ticket to buy, it's much more reasonable. Who needs a roomie? Steve?
Oxygenee
If it's the same Mrs you brought last time, I know I speak on behalf of many when I say it's quite disappointing she's not coming with you…. harhar.gif

I'm glad you're coming! Ask Marc, he may still have single rooms available.
martin.zufanek
Zufanek's are coming too and staying at Casa de la Oxygénée (fingers crossed)!

Yup, Patty is still kicking around as the current Mrs. And I know it's disappointing! She's a cutie.

(I will PM you or Marc about details shortly.)

Is it true what they say, Poppa? That there'll be absinthe sausages and rivers of molten cheese?
Oxygenee
Rivers, my dear, rivers.
Donnie Darko
And rivers of tears from me, who cannot attend.
sixela
Can't eat cheese, can't drink (too much) absinthe, but I wouldn't miss it a second time for the world.

Marc, hotel room, please?
hartsmar
...and we have a designated driver...
Grim
Give the man a camera and a reason… you've got a documentary…
Patlow
Just got plane ticket, secured room in Bov (thanks, Marc!), and a luxury relaxation chamber in Zurich for the day after…

Officially in!

I believe me, Gertz and a couple of other Danes will be there as well. Still planning, however.

Yes I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! This year I'm going to try to exercise some self-control on Friday. Last year I drank a lot at the Pernot distillery, then drank a lot at CAB's distillery, then drank a lot at the fondue chalet, then spent the rest of the early morning hours drinking trappist in the hotel parking lot (a tradition with Dom Lochet)… The day of the festival I was so hung over I felt like death. I yelled at the cows to tell them to stop with the bells. And I missed the get together at Nico/Diane's bar, which is always a good time. At least I managed to have a taste of that Berger blanche that Marc obtained - man that was amazing, one of the best things I can remember ever tasting!

And yes, there is always a wide variety of great stuff to drink besides the ubiquitous les bleues (ho hum). Many people bring samples or bottles, and we got to taste some pre-release stuff like this amazing absinthe Sauvage that will be coming from Pernot soon, made with wild wormwoods collected from the mountains. There was the Sapphire at CAB's, and I remember some interesting Czech HG as well. There are always some surprises.
Grim
Soooo… is this all booked up with no room for others?

PM me…
Steve
Don't tease me, Grim. Just get your ass over there!
Patlow
Indeed.
Grim
There's no way I can swing it… and not because I don't want to try.

I made commitments without realizing the dates overlap, and now I'll be in L.A. while you're having the absolute, most wonderful time imaginable! Grrrr. I'm jealous as hell.
Kirk
Will there be good booze there?
Grim
Oh… my… god… there will be (booze).

Patlow
No roommate for me?!?

Grim
Again…

There's a Koncilation Fest at a later date. No need to cry in your absinthe.

While around those parts I figured it could be a good time to have a look at some property to invest in. Anyone want to help out financially? Just a little...

They just did an hour long special on that chateau on the Wealth Channel. An unbelievable piece of real estate.
hartsmar
Ah... Didn't know. It looks nice. The price is just right.
Tibro
The Wealth Channel? Seriously?
Shabba53
I know. Ridiculous. Even more ridiculous is how low quality the majority of their productions are.
Tibro
Maybe they feel confidant they won't lose their viewership of one. Or does Oxy tune in sometimes too?
Provenance
What's not surprising is that you watch it.
Kirk
Only when The Rob Report is a short read.

Actually, I don't. It was on in the reception area of an office that I was in a few weeks ago.

You're too quick to judge, my friend.

Not at all, you just discussed the quality of the "majority" of their productions -- not an indication that by happenstance you saw a single show.
