more like fun-due ...



finally. a fondue party. i've wanted to do fondue since about 1971, when i was negative four years old. the turtlenecks, hearty laughter, how all the men look a little like magnum p.i. by day the women wear form fitting velure outfits -- a one piece short and tube top set, perfect for roller skating. by night, their hair becomes a crusty helmet, with curls the size of a rolling pin.

everyone eats fondue, listens to bread, drinks riunite on ice and talks about laundry detergent.

then, when everything ramps up a little bit, the pervy neighbor suggests that all the men throw their car keys into the fish bowl ...




we just had a two person fondue party, which makes the fish bowl game kind of silly.






i got melted gouda on my pants, but ate it anyway. with a fork.





when i wasn't looking, chuck used my camera to make fondue art photos.



then he took this, entitled: "photo you find of your mom, laying in a drawer."

SImilarly, I've always wanted to have an apres-ski party next to a fireplace. The guys wear turtlenecks and moustaches. The girls (aka "ski-bunnies") wear down vests over terrycloth sweaters. Someone has their leg in a cast. Everyone drinks Lowenbrau.

Here's to good friends...tonight is kinda special. Let it be Lowenbrau.

I love the title of that last photo, because it is so true.

To all: Even if you know what Reunite on Ice is, you should check out the link.

"Reunite on ice, Reunite so nice...Reunite Reunite!!"

My parents were totally the Reunite-drinking, fondue-eating, ski-sweater-wearing couple. My dad sported a Magnum stache and my mom liked to hang pictures of women running through hazy flowerbeds with "deep thoughts" overlayed on them on the walls at home.

(I love fondue, period.)

AS and I are having fondue party on Christmas Eve. Probably with his weird Jewish roommate hanging around and being annoying.
