Still breathing.
I've just sent emails to two local Go clubs in an attempt to identify the player in this photo. I have done this entirely without considering my actions because clayrobeson said so. Actually, he said I should enter the photo into an amateur competition and not argue about it. In order to do so, I need to find the player to obtain a model release, and the emails are just a step along the way. If any of you have a template for the legalese needed for such a contract (you know who you are), please send it along so I can continue in this "no mind" state. If I stop to think too much about what I'm doing, I'll never get the entry sent off.

UPDATE: Oh god, what the hell am I doing??

Which reminds me... the First Snow Old Ale needs to be dropped off at Modern Brewer by the end of this week. While the outcome of the homebrew competition is of no importance whatsoever, actually entering is vital for me. Someone needs to kick me if I drag my feet any longer.


For those who were keeping track, the Faisan Braisé au Chou Rouge et aux Châtaignes just barely beat out the Gâteau aux Châtaignes in my recent poll. The two questions I have are a) whether knowledge that the gâteau is made with chocolate would change your vote and b) who's coming to dinner.

Re: Very basic model release

Beautiful. Thanks so much. ^_^

a) have you enough chesnuts to make both?
b) yes, please

a) I don't think so. The latter is rather intensive. I may try to find more to supplement my current hoard, however.

b) K. Have an idea of where I can find pheasant... just a matter of figuring out how many I can feed. ^_^

How is it that when I start to think about it, the first thing I experience is an irrational anxiety reaction?

At this point, I think I've narrowed which club to which he belongs. Now it's just a matter of hearing back from them.

And getting in touch with him.

And convincing him that it's a good idea.

And keeping myself convinced that it's a good idea.

Even if it's something I know, it's good having the feedback. I'm a little too prone to bouts with anxiety, and when dealing with it, I'm not always clear about doing what needs be done.

Still haven't heard from the MGA, but I'll try nudging them again over the weekend. If I don't hear from them soon, I'll go to one of their meetings and see what I can find.

See? I have a plan. ^_^

When are you making this meal???? Maybe I can hop a plane for a weekend visit ^-^ I really don't know which would be better, cake or pheasant... I like couplingchaos's idea: Make both!

Pheasant has the whole "rare game" feel, which will absolutely enhance the experience. The dessert is probably delicious, but it won't carry the same gravity.

Making both might be chestnut overkill for the same meal, but I'll have to see what I can find.

If I had to choose, I'd go with the pheasant. Chocolate, which really ought to be a delicacy, is too much of an everyday food for me.
komos From: komos Date: October 14th, 2004 03:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
And you did!

Chocolate and sweets in general are far too commonly available in the US, but that way lies a rant... I'll spare you for now.
