As far as food goes, they don't have any, but I heard you can bring in your own :P

I will try to make it, but may be up North in Alpena doing a TA consult with a housing organization working there. I would like to make it, so if I can re-schedule my trip I will.

:rofl:

Alpena, eh? Jeez Dave, you're getting close to my hometown!

I gotta admit I am a city kid through and through. I like being in the country, but after a short time I crave the city sounds and feel. Alpena is way up there...my contract is with the Michigan State Housing Development Authority and a group working out of Hilman Michigan. If you blink you miss it. 5 hour drive each way. I simply load up my i pod sit back and roll.

I do see a lot of cows it is "udderly" scary up there :blink:

But if I see bumpernuts I am outta there!

Settle down, now, gentlemen. Let's hope the conversation at our meetup is on a higher level than what I read here.

~~~zenstyle, who will be wearing a pince-nez and carrying a volume of Proust, of course.

Pince-nez

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

(Redirected from Pince nez)

Pince-nez (also known as Oxford glasses) are a style of spectacles, popular in the 19th century, which are supported without earpieces, by pinching the bridge of the nose. (The term, pronounced pĭns' nā, is from the French for "pinch nose.")

Pince-nez first made their appearance in the 1840s, reaching their peak popularity around 1880 to 1900. By the late 1930s, observers noted that they were mostly only still popular with elderly people, suggesting the style was a fad of members of the Progressive Generation.

The spectacles were worn by both men and women. Since this style of glasses was uncomfortable to wear for extended periods, and also because the constant wearing of glasses was out of fashion at the time, pince-nez were usually suspended from a ribbon or chain worn round the neck, or tied to the buttonhole of a lapel. Women often used a special device pinned to the clothing, which would automatically retract the line to which the glasses were attached, when they were not in use.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the pince-nez style enjoyed a slight revival due to the character Morpheus from The Matrix trilogy, who sported reflective-lensed pince-nez glasses as part of his overall ensemble.

No, I will be sedately drinking beer and telling my point of view, and listening to other GRUrbans tell theirs. I'll also be guessing who is who, based on my mental pictures of posters here. Fun!
