I wonder

if it is too late to arrange for a baked dessert in the shape of a garland for the show? You know, the cake is a lei.

Organized the Vice Kit
james_nicoll
Found two humbug candies of undetermined age. Am holding poll in the company as to whether I should eat them.

My actual purpose in looking at the vice kit today was to organize a chaotic assortment of Vice supplies. I had three boxes, each containing overlapping sets of supplies. I now have a tub full of durable supplies (like the cash box), a tub full of plates, bowls and napkins, and a box full of cups and straws!

And a pile of plastic cutlery I cannot fit in anywhere. Even though it came out of these three boxes and everything is packed more compactly than it was.

*cries uncontrollably for an hour, then begins working out what sort of strike dinner uses only cup lids and plastic spoons*

check my math?
james_nicoll
There have been two parties of about 40 people each. I am going to assume consumption scales linearly with the number of people*. At a guess, the next three parties will look like this: 50 people, 80 people, 80 people for a total of 210 people, or about 2 1/2 times what we've already gone through. We went through six giant (650 gram, I think) bags of chips, and four regular bags of cheeZees so what we need is 12 – 15 big bags of chips and chip equivalents and 10 regular bags of CheeZees, which I think is the same as five big bags. So up to 17 big bags. Which, wow, seems like a lot.

(and then there are special cases like gummy worms, where a fair sized container disappeared in 15 minutes)

* I have been assured that it does not. Sadly, half the people I asked said consumption per person drops off as numbers rise and half said that consumption per person rose.
