I can't stop laughing. Sorry, got a visual.

You and I have to hook up LOL. Unfortunately, all I can bring is food ;-)

You can bring food but you have to serve it naked :)

I see that you're from Elk Grove. That town has a somewhat special signifigance for me. It was the first California town I stopped in on the way to San Francisco from NYC. The very first native Californian I met grew up in Elk Grove. Her family had a small farm there. Elk Grove was where I first saw a cow close up, and touched one. My first girl friend in San Francisco was from Elk Grove.

I've not been through there in years, but I remember how enjoyable all my earlier visits were. Does it still have that small town character?

Can't serve naked -- too cold ;-)

Can't use small town and Elk Grove in the same sentence any more. Suburbia sprawling.... I moved here frome Walnut Grove -- still a small town.

Only nakedness is in the shower, and no cats involved. Then into sloppies if my mans at sea or jammies and dressing gown if he's home. Then it's a black russian ( my measures) check emails, write tomorrows menus then see how spyro's doing on my DS. Take my recently prescribed Champix (stop smoking pill) feel like barfing, have a glass of milk, then go to bed

Wow shroom girl. A little disjointed on the thoughts there. I like the printed dramatic pauses though. I'm not sure if you were under the impression that I was saying that you guys are not chefs. I understand the full gamut of "chefs" that operate in our business. Some just have more responsibilities than others. And by the way, I am not a desk jockey. I am in every one of my kitchens every day. I help create specials, jump on line in a push, help put out banquets, butcher meat and fish when needed, etc. As far as my kids go, I don't see how that is relevant to this discussion, but all 6 of them call me dad, and I try to spend as much time as possible with all of them. The fact that I work so hard is the reality of this business when you get to a certain level. I envy those of you who have a 9 to 5 type job and can spend more time with your family on your days off. I have always aspired to achieving greatness and position. If that means that I have to outwork everyone around me, so be it. It pays off when my restaurants get featured in Las Vegas Magazine, or when the show It's My Party on Lifetime airs in January and features my banquet department catering a $250,000 party for Lake Las Vegas billionaires. I guess it just depends on where your priorities are.

I know the city -- brrrrr! Wrap me in a fur and give me a glass of champagne -- I'll cook naked.

The growth has been exponential. The delta is changing overnight. The city can't keep up with the growth. Looking for places to move to.

You know what's best after a long day / night? FOOT RUB! There's nothin' like a footgasm :smoking:

Foot rubs! Yes indeedy ...

I'd like to get outta the city, but I blew an opportunity some years ago and have been kisking myself ever since. Oh, well, there are a lot worse places to live than the Bay Area ...

My youngest bought me a Nintendo DS lite for my birthday in August. Spyro is a purple dragon and I have to help him free all the other dragons etc etc See!


I'm well past the date i gave for quitting. Only 1 week to go before i beg the doc for more. I'd better stop by then or she'll stop giving them to me... maybe
Apparently they cost £160/$320 for a 2 week supply n I'm getting them for the price of a prescription £6.85.
Patches made me itch the pills make me nauseous but just til i get a really good burp. They mess with receptors in your brain to make you less likely to want to smoke and i am down to 12 a day from 40.
Do you smoke?
Just about every chef i've known chainsmokes on a break, a couple even used to while cooking. they belonged to the string vest, 1Towel gets used for everything all day brigade.(Armpits included) Now the uk is so anal about smoking you cant do it anywhere. Don't get me started. I know i tend to rabbit on.
So cat dancing in the all together, Naaah! Getting nude aint a pretty sight for a start, and i'm a dog girl ( dont dance with Bruno either.
