Looks like there aren't many MeFites in the area. I thought there might be since we rather famously had some members in Portugal. And the Berlin meetup I attended was one of my favorites.

It was fun although there were no MeFites. Are there even MeFites in Spain?

Going back to Seattle tomorrow.

A few days ago I complained that Anonymous AskMe had been really boring recently. I don't think that anymore.

I just saw Inception. Great movie, and great AskMe thread.

I loved this comment of jessamyn's. So true.

Looks like the canoeing meetup is happening in Seattle. Yay!

Canoeing was fun!

I'm going to Bend, Oregon later this week. It doesn't look like there are any MeFites there. Sad.

Hello, old friend. It's been almost two months since I visited this thread last! It is a beautiful day here in Seattle. We are having a great fall to make up for a crappy summer.

There are some pointless threads in MeTa recently.

It feels like it's been a while since there's been a good MeTa to entertain enlighten us.

I dislike rainy days.

Belgian waffles and Jon Stewart! OMG OMG OMG.

The thing about these waffles is they are not the usual Belgian (Brussels) waffles of America—they are Liège waffles, the usual Belgian waffles of Belgium. Wikipedia says:
The Liège waffle (from the city of Liège, in eastern Belgium) is a richer, denser, sweeter, and chewier waffle. Invented by the chef of the prince-bishop of Liège in the 18th century as an adaptation of brioche bread dough, it features chunks of pearl sugar, which caramelizes on the outside of the waffle when baked. It is the most common type of waffle available in Belgium and is prepared in plain, vanilla and cinnamon varieties by street vendors across the nation.
Pearl sugar is awesome.

I really like Menomena. There's only been one MeFi thread about it so far? I think we need more.
posted by grouse at 10:25 PM on October 30, 2010

I could really go for a waffle right now. I can't stop thinking about waffles, and this is my only outlet.

Who here likes waffles? I like waffles.

I also like waffles.

I just had a meeting with my mentor. I did not ask him if he liked waffles. I don't need to. Who doesn't like waffles?

If I worked downtown I could have waffles whenever I wanted.

The problem with this thread is that it keeps popping up near the top in Recent Activity. And then it reminds me of waffles. And then I want waffles. Again. It's like I just lost The Game.

Maybe I should participate in some active, high-drama MeTa threads to keep this down low in my Recent Activity. Maybe I should also eat some waffles.

I am eating my breakfast. It is not made of waffles. This makes for a sad grouse.

I had a waffle cone yesterday.

I have been invited to a pancake breakfast. I don't want to go to a pancake breakfast.

I had an order of beignets today with powdered sugar. The beignet barista made them to order and peered through an organic chemistry workbook while they fried. They were doughy, slightly underdone, and they only reminded me of waffles more than ever.

I used to know a girl who had a dog named Waffle.

My longing for waffles continues unabated.

Remember how Garry Trudeau used to draw Bill Clinton as a buttery waffle? Those were the days.
