Pie Night tonight

Just woke up and I am vaguely tired still. Need to shake it off, get this placed cleaned up, go pick up pie ingredients, and start making pies. I will only be checking the crack bored and email sporadically during the day, so if you are trying to get in touch for directions or to bring something, call me. Number is (206) 568-8356.

They Live

Friday and Saturday, September 12 & 13, 19 & 20 at 11 pm
(John Carpenter, 1988, 35 mm, 93 min.)
"Rowdy" Roddy Piper is Nada, a hard-luck construction worker whose new extreme sunglasses have just let him in on the greatest secret of all time: horrifying transdimensional alien creatures have infiltrated our media and waterbeds, intent on turning mankind into a drooling herd of mindless human waste. Based on fact, this scathing John Carpenter "mindbender" features more boneheaded conspiracy paranoia than you can shake a stick at! And yes, the fight scene between Rowdy Roddy and co-star Keith David is the lengthiest in cinema history.

So who is going with me? (Thinking Friday the 19th)

Pie List

Have the fixings for 2 peach pies, 1 pear pie, 1 strawberry rhubarb pie, 1 blackberry pie, and 1 apple cheddar pie. And if that turns out to not be enough, I can make a pumpkin pie.

Also, one of the pies will be non-dairy (i.e., made using shortening instead of butter).

Just a little bit of cleaning left, and then I start making pie around 4. Doors open at 6. (Though I don't mind if people show up early.)


I always mis time this

Just popped the first two pies (peach) into the oven. That means they'll be done in 45 minutes or so, and will have another 30 minutes or so to cool. So the first pies won't be ready until aroun 7:15 to 7:30.

Of course, that's usually when the first people will arrive. My friends aren't exactly known for their punctuality.
