Bringing good Absinthe from here, probably repeating the prosciutto involtini (will make many more this time), and perhaps some sweet surprise

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / Episode 8

What to say? Thank you so much for another great party!

Excellent company, I really enjoyed the conversations, and of course as usual the food was amazing. I also particularly liked the absinth, and I was having such a grand time...ehm...sailing with Captain Morgan

On this last point, my stomach begged to differ this morning, but alas, still had a grand time and would do it all over again. And, somehow I managed to cook a big bowl of chili con carne for Part II later today.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / Episode 8

Thanks Professor for squeezing us in, literally. We had an excellent time and enjoyed the conversation as usual. I've already linked Darkplace a few times. That was a real find.

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / Episode 8

Darkplace was indeed hilarious. Really nice to host a bunch of nice people.
The consumption of Absinthe was on a really high level, as well as the Rum and the BlackVodka/Applejuice.

Thanks everyone for your contribuition. Still searching for people who can host the event.

Re: TV Comedy Series & Absinth / Episode 8

I've enviously seen these events over the last year or so, but have never been able to attend. Hopefully that'll change over the latter half of the year, and I'm wondering if they'll be any demand for a quirky Icelandic comedy I saw a couple of episodes of back in darkest winter:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N%C3%A6turvaktin
(Næturvaktin, aka 'The Night Shift').

I'm currently 'obtaining' the first season (12 episodes, hardcoded Eng subs).
