It was GREAT! DebO, Batman, Caterina2 and moxymom and I had a great time and the night just flew by. It was nice to have only a small number of people so we could all chat together without missing other conversations, but all the same - next time we want more people to make the trip! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
We all arrived at 7:30 and I brought out the collage. Everyone oohed and aahed over the pictures - especially MommaBear, since I guess folks expect her to be bigger, browner and with more fur (she is less bear and more lipstick and nice hair, lol!). [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] Spudberry's twin boys looked so cute with their Superman pyjamas; we were envious of Helen and Geoff's Australian beach; everyone was thrilled to FINALLY see what Cindy Spowart Cook looks like! I pointed out that Becca is actually the little one in the family, not the mom who posts here; the only one who had Erik pegged looks-wise was DebO who works in IT - glasses every time, lol! It was so nice for all of us to meet the lovely JanaR, Codyman (cool Boxer!), Going Nut's cat Little Foot, Superwoman arachide, Nick sipping his merlot and Gwen Thornberry (now we need to see one with your glasses!).
We ate at an Italian buffet-style restaurant and we laughed so much when DebO pointed out that one of the dishes was Merlot-braised BBQ chicken! We all agreed it was absolutely delicious. Sorry to disappoint, smack, but I only had 2 drinks, lol - a Bloody Caesar and a glass of Valpollicella with my meal. Although DebO's Margarita was looking pretty darn good from where I was sitting... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
I'm also going to post in the Off Topic Collage thread to let everyone know when to expect their collage via e-amil - only members who contributed pictures are receiving a copy for privacy reasons. We also took pictures of ourselves to send to collage members, so those will also be uploaded and sent soon. We had lots of laughs checking the digital pictures for closed eyes (right Caterina2??!!) and spinach in teeth before getting the approval to distribute the images. One way to get everyone to chuckle for the camera is to yell, PEANUTS SUCK! just before the flash goes off, I discovered!
Thanks so much Cathy, for organizing this. It was worth the trip to Toronto for sure. DebO and I were discussing a possible fun day in our nation's capital, Ottawa, for families - travelling to a children's museum, for example. I am IN - we have family in Ottawa we'd love to stay with, and perhaps some of the Montreal/Kingston people on the boards could meet us there. It's only 5 hours from me, lol! We can do it!
Take care Deb, moxymom, Batman and Cathy. Lovely to chat with all of you. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Batman, DebO and moxymom, it was great meeting you and Carolyn, it was wonderful seeing you again. I had a great time. I think I had too much Merlot -- chicken, that is. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
Carolyn, thanks for putting the collage together, you did a wonderful job! I must say that our PA members are very good- looking people (Is that a pre-requisite in joining this site? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]) Carolyn's right, there was so much oohing and aahing over all the pictures. MommaBear, I can't believe it, no fur -- you look like a movie star!
Cindy, that was a great picture of you. Eric, how does it feel to look 10 years younger?. I really hope you can both come to our next fun night. We would really love to meet you.
Carolyn, hope you can add some collagen to my lips in that digital picture. Can't wait to see them!
Take care.
Cathy

Hi Caterina2,
I like being young... if you feel young inside, you are young. Age is all in the mind. I would love to come to the next get-together. The timing didn't work out this time as one of my friends who moved away from Toronto to the USA a couple of years ago was back and Friday was the only night we could meet up and chat.
See you next time [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Cayley's Mom, DebO, Caterina2 and moxymom - it was absolutely wonderful meeting you and I am glad that I had the chance to share stories and listen to each of yours as well. We had the chance to share the pictures of our kids (all of which are of course as good looking as we are [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img])
It is really comforting to know that there are people in this world that are as friendly and welcoming as you guys were with me last night...thank-you!!!
It was also pretty cool to see all the pictures of some of you - almost made it feel like you were there (although I pegged erik totally wrong [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] )
I look forward to another merlot chicken filled night...with FRIENDS... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Hi Rita,
So you really thought I looked like Willy Wonka? Or since I am in computers, you thought I looked like the comic book guy on the Simpsons? haha [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
