Varmint's Pig Pickin'

We will need some help on the pit crew, just to make sure everyone gets enough sleep.  The downside of such a position is that we really can't drink that much on Friday.  Although, that just might be a good thing, eh?

I do not understand this logic at all. Have you never heard of "Hair of the dog?"

OK, that settles it -- you're on the pit crew, too!

Mrs. Varmint is using this as an excuse to work around the yard.  She had her chainsaw out yesterday, and when she was finished with that, out came the pressure washer.  I give my wife power tools for gifts.  She gives me cooking stuff!

You two are too cool. :wub:

Should I roast some coffee beans for Saturday morning? Varmint, do you have a coffee grinder? I have an extra one I can bring.

I have a blade type grinder and a shitty burr grinder that I used to use for espresso, but it started leaking coffee grounds all over the place. It still works OK, I think, it's just too messy. I have a shitty drip pot as well, but it's good enough for me! Freshly roasted beans would be awesome -- I'm about out of the ones Fat Guy roasted for me for my birthday!! I'll provide the cream.

All and sundry,

I'll be bringing equipment to set up a temporary Pig Pickin' wireless network, so if you were waffling over whether to bring your wi-fi laptop, wonder no more. We should be able to upload pictures of the pig straight from the pit. :raz:

Cheers,

Scott

Please set up a broadcast, e.g using Yahoo messenger

Jackal has a good idea, but I don't have a webcam. Does an attendee have one to bring? I'll set it up on my laptop if needed...

Varmint:

Regarding attire, does everyone have to wear the cheese heads, or would you prefer that we do not so as not to clash with yours?

Seeing that this is a NC, rather than Wisconsin, event, Cheese Heads will not be worn.

So let it be written, so let it be done.

Guys:

I wanted you all to know that there is a chance Rachel and I might not make it to the Pig Pickin' this weekend, as my mother is in the hospital and we are going to decide whether or not we should leave based on her condition tomorrow. We were planning on leaving late this evening but we will likely leave tomorrow morning or early afternoon.

We'll keep you guys up to date.

Thanks guys. She's out of the danger zone today, as she had her emergency operation yesterday (they had to cut out an small infected part of her intestines), but she's under very close observation now. If its safe enough for us to leave tomorrow we will probably go, as my mom wants us to go down to High Point and get some new furniture. :wacko:

Varmint - do we have directions from the motel to the Varmint residence?

(I don't really want to read this entire thread to check.)

Katie and I spoke last Friday; we're getting psyched!

See ya' Friday.

Charlie:

Great minds think alike again! I was hoping that Varmint would leave a sheet with directions, perhaps a small map and the home phone of Chez Varmint for those of us checking in at the hotel.

Bet you or Jaymes already have this covered, right? :wink:
