    ( I save the NYT magazine for Sunday evening. It's just, it's not newsie. So I can't possibly read it at the same time as the paper. It's just my MO.)

    the pirates' weekly agenda:
    Wednesday polo
    Saturday holiday party

    people keep asking me, "what's this about a ride before the holiday party?" honestly, my providing pie for the party necessitates me sitting in Peter's kitchen (since I can't carry the pie on my bike, though i'll bring over homemade crust and filling) and assembling said pie and baking it for about 45 min before the party. this way, it will be warm, peter's house will smell great, and we can all be happy. so, i would not be the planner for this ride. someone else?

    the ride would be optional, for people who can carry their pot luck tastiness and bring their bike at the same time. hats off to them.

    people also have expressed concern about who is bringing what. let's just post here.

    i'm bringing pie.

    Sounds pielicious....I am bringing Aloo Gobi.

    On a slightly different subject, and this is probably one only the 703's will be able to answer...are there any stores in Arlington which have a good stock of spray paint, I need paint for the current project, please help!

    I've been asked by two confused pirates what day the pirate holiday party is. The Pirate Party is this Saturday, the 17th, at PNC's (pre-party ride optional). the 30th is a different story altogether, that is the New YARRR Pillage.

    Yes, can everyone post what they are bringing to the potluck, it would be great if all of us brought pie, but that wouldnt be much of a potluck meal. lots of side dishes would be good, few desserts, some main dishes. Also the party is looking to be around 20 people, so bring as much of your dish as you can make/bake/carry.

    The ride is being planned by Christoph, as he just posted a minute ago; i'd recommend you drop off your potluck goodness at PNC's beforehand. I think its going to be a nice day for a long ride on one of the trails. any questions about it, ask him.

    Greetings ye scurvy scalliwags,

    I met a few of you (and already knew a few of you) at the Rico Suave Alley Cat. Thought I would introduce myself to the forum and inquire as to any rides going on this week.

    Thanks.

    Kevin

    P.S. jonny5--the Raleigh was a big hit as an xmas present!

    Well, actually, meet some more, i don't know if they're all going to be there on wednesday but some should!!
    And at the very least you'll be able to share a sparks and whack a ball around with us.
    A bonding experience if i ever heard it.

    Good of you to speak up though...
    i know there are more dc people on this board.
    but i'm confused why they haven't spoken up yet..
    then again, we are a motley bunch of b*stards and ******lips
    and speaking for myself, new people smell funny, so its just as well

    come aboard ye sorry sea dog

    Ha, to find a real hardware store these days?
    Ace hardware, there is one on Lee highway near the toyota dealer a little further up than spokes etc. it is a fun climb, so you will not care what the colors are when you get there (this is a maybe)
    National Wholesale Liquidators in Eden center (7 corners), may have a large stash. The one up the road from me on Rhode Island had a very good selection of rattle cans, but nothing fancy. (also a maybe, but much much better odds). You can get to the one on RHode Island Ave just off the RI ave metro station. Or you can ride 10 blocks east from me... bring a very very very good lock.
    If you are not having any fun, it's all your fault

    I'm afraid I don't have much to say so I end up lurking like a...well I suppose like a pirate might. Now, if we were talking about the 1979 classic movie The Warriors, well then I'd be able to contribute.

    On an unrelated note, what time is the party this Saturday?

    I made a mix cd for a friend this weekend, and I invested a good amount of time in ripping sound clips from Repo Man. I will post a few here because you might need these:

    hmmm [adversarily drawing the lurkers out]. methinks pirates take action, make pies, sing chanteys, fall down, *do*. lurkers: peep, be creepy, twiddle, leer, wear trenchcoats.

    There was a place on Columbia Pike above Courthouse. It's been years since I've been down that strip of road though.

    Have you tried the Yellow Pages?

    Speaking of chanteys this tells you almost everything you'd ever want to know, but for the full experience this link from amazon is not to be missed, check out the samples for download, everyone has a favourite.
