In which I am unexpectedly running things

Coming up in June is the Boston incarnation of the Floating Northeast Filk Convention (what is filk?  Short answer: folk music of sci-fi/fantasty/geeky folks).  It is an excellent con.  And as of yesterday, I am co-running the consuite.  I’d already been planning to help out at least a little, and I like feeding people.  I’m going to see how much I can do within budget to make it a bit less of a high-fructose-corn-syrup-and-non-recyclable-plastics party than it often ends up being.  This will mainly mean taking advantage of crockpots and bread machines at-con, baking munchies ahead of time, and trying to buy packaged things in as large units as possible rather than individually wrapped whatsits.  I will also be able to ensure that the herbivores have protein to eat, probably in the form of lentil stew and peanut butter sandwiches.

Also, I now need to learn how to make mochi.  At dim sum someone pointed out that the opposite direction fusion food to Ben’s red bean hamentaschen would be poppyseed mochi buns.  I am exceedingly fond of both poppyseed filling and mochi buns.  Thus, this object needs to exist.

    Well, we googled “filk”, but got distracted by SCA web sites. After determining that we live in the March of the Winged Hills in the Barony of the Flaming Gryphon in the Kingdom of the Midlands, we got back to looking into filk. Ended up here:

    during which much laughing and snorting took place. Now we need to get back to real life… :)
