Birthday Plans in the Making

On the recommendation of wordweaverlynn, I'm putting this out there:

The plans for my birthday party, which will take place in mid-May, are in the making. I've decided on The Iron Chef Challenge Birthday.

Guests will be required to bring a single ingredient. Once all the guests have arrived, teams will be formed that must prepare food using the ingredients people brought. Points will be awarded for inventive use of materials, palatability of food, and overall panache and brio. And joie de vivre. And eau de toilet. And pet pourri. And other French terms. Prizes will be awarded. (We're amassing some really good prizes, too.) Food-relatd movies will be airing. Iron Chef aprons will be worn (from locations like Akron, Peru and 143rd St. & Maple).

Those who feel that their talents lay less in the kitchen and more in the dining room are invited to be celebrity judges.

All in all, it promises to be fun, fun, fun (with the added potential for hilarious disaster mitigated by the proximity of a pizza place).

I haven't put together the guest list yet, but let me know if you're interested and I'll make sure that I drop you an Evite.
