With nametags with "noms de Baristanet," rather than our real monickers, yes? This way attendees can decide for themselves whether so-and-so is really more likable in person, and thus decide for themselves whether or not to 'fess up about one's real identity. And no live bellicosity.

Does the picture indicate what the dress code will be? I may have to change my mind about coming.....

Posted by: Anne | Apr 13, 2005 10:23:51 AM

And if everybody follows the "clothing optional" dress code, that'll surely prove more fun for most folks than even Bobbi Brown had when she famously saw the Stones in their underwear. (Even if there probably won't be anything half as interesting to view as the extensive needle tracks on Keith RIchards' arms, tattoos and birthmarks notwithstanding.)

oooh, this is so cool...I will definitely try to make it.

What's with the AOL logo (or what ever that is) on "La Danse"?

Posted by: Right of Center | Apr 13, 2005 11:23:27 AM

I thought it was a combination Greek delta and the letter the Spartans used to have on their shields (the lambda?). As for what the illustration may presage, no daisy chains at this get-together! Okay?

here is an unadulterated version

Posted by: Right of Center | Apr 13, 2005 11:52:55 AM

oops: here

Also for a comparison, here is the WC's Party Invitation image. Along with the approved party topic list.

Yes - let's pick apart the graphics Barista uses. Sounds like a kind response to a party invite!

Butch you are always picking a fight where there is none!

There was no criticism of the B lady and the graphic noplace nohow ceptin' yo' head!

Posted by: Right of Center | Apr 13, 2005 12:37:33 PM

Now, the WC - they are always fair game!

Posted by: Right of Center | Apr 13, 2005 12:38:40 PM

Actually, butch, if you'd gone to ROC's suggested images, you'd have seen that they're actually pretty funny. "Lively up yourself," as Bob Marley put it, and just think of all the white hetero male conservative oppression and penis size comparisons (followed, of course, by heavy beer chugging to rival even that seen in the Czech Republic) you'll have a chance to experience firsthand come 5/9.

Posted by: cathar | Apr 13, 2005 12:47:15 PM

Yes, they are very funny. You're on a roll, ROC. Apparently this weather agrees with you.

Posted by: walleroo | Apr 13, 2005 1:20:53 PM

ROC -- thanks for the improved graphic (it's up) as well as the hilarious invite/topic list. Remember you can always attend anonymously, like a fly on the wall...

Posted by: Liz | Apr 13, 2005 1:50:44 PM

I think this get together sounds like fun... but no name tags.

how about we have a little contest... whoever correctly guesses the most id's of the baristans in attendance gets a prize...

I have lived in Baristaville for the past 20 years. I have been hanging around this watercooler for the past few months. Although I am shy, I felt compelled to comment on two recent topics. I think a get-together would be fun. I would like to go. However, I fear that adding human characteristics to these e-people would be as if my childhood leggo-people came to life. Would it ever be the same game again?

assorted hanger's on

Miss Martta

and, something truly funny (the last one requires quicktime)

Posted by: Right of Center | Apr 13, 2005 3:33:57 PM

I always wanted to "grow up" and become a Playskool figure (though I'd have preferred one from the Pirates set). Thanks, nonetheless.

Posted by: cathar | Apr 13, 2005 3:41:55 PM

and how can I have forgotten the BD's

Posted by: Right of Center | Apr 13, 2005 3:58:59 PM

Okay, that movie was one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. Ha!

Posted by: Marshall | Apr 13, 2005 3:59:16 PM

LOL, ROC! Thanks for giving me a dog and a #3...that happens to be my lucky number.

Posted by: Miss Martta | Apr 13, 2005 4:09:36 PM

Cathar -

I'll give you my hook if I can have your hat.

Posted by: Lex | Apr 13, 2005 5:04:19 PM

Okay, Lex, but you have to sharpen it first.
