There are potential plans in the making for a trip to Salem, MA to do the witch hunt thing on Saturday, June 26. And while Erislover finds this far off into the future ;), and for this group, it does seem a bit early to be making definite plans, I was thinking maybe we should try. Anyone else interested? Is that a good date or a bad date?
New England Area Dopers. Does that make us NEADs? I just hate showing my vulnerable side so publicly.
I might have been able to make it but I’ll be at **DAVEW0071’s ** Ribfest 2004 that weekend… And, from what I’ve seen, two weeks notice isn’t actually all that advanced. But, were it not for the Ribfest, I’d be up for it; sounds like fun.
Wow, I’m tempted. That’s just down the road for me.
Only fly in the ointment: I’ll be getting myself and my horse ready for a show on Sunday – schooling one last time, then bathing him, braiding his mane, tack-cleaning, boot-polishing, organizing stuff, and so forth. Since it’s our first show together (pause for “Awwwwww…”) I’ll be a nervous, obsessive wreck.
Hmmm…well, ValleyGirl is refusing bottles now, so she’d have to go with me. But I usually just strap her into her front pack and you’d practically forget she’s there. How do the NEADs* feel about breastfeeding in public? (I am discreet…)
I’ve been trying to think of an alternative name. I must admit a strange fondness for the New England Doper Festing, Lounging, and Recreation Society (NED FLandERS). Yes, I am a :wally
Ok, it looks like the 26th is a bad date for everyone except me and Eris, so how’s about another date?
Let’s see, I’ll do this in the most cleverly sophisticated manner that I can muster… closing my eyes, rolling mouse around, random clicking…
How’s July 17th sound? Or is Sunday better? July 18th?
And that shouldn’t interfere with other Dopefests that I’m aware of yet and it’s waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay into the future for plan making purposes. (I think on Eris’ scale, it could be a matter of cosmic proportions, so I hope that’s not a bad thing. Who else am I going to go sneak off with? )
I don’t see any reason Lily can’t breastfeed in public.
So Public Breasfeeding in Salem on the weekend of the 17th. Volunteers?
