A call for all the striped-pant cookie pushers August 15, 2010 5:50 AM   Subscribe

I know there are more than a handful of U.S. Foreign Service types here on Metafilter. It would be great to know who's out there, maybe with an eye towards arranging a meet-up near FSI if and when a critical mass is back in D.C. for training.

If you're interested, please comment below or drop me a MeMail and we can get an email chain going!

(P.S. I checked with the mods and they think this post is better for MeTa than IRL, so no worries about that.)

Oh sure, you think it's a good idea now, but just wait until we start seeing similar threads popping up for the Secret Service, CIA, KGB, and Interpol.

I'm looking for people on MeFi who are involved in the, um, import-export business, who may be interested in meeting together when they're in DC for... trade conferences. I'll bring my camera and tape recorder.

Yours truly,
Scooter Libby Nobody you've ever heard of

Just want to piggy back on this and see if anyone else is in the "waste management" business. Please have your people get in touch with mine. We'll set something up.

This is a meta filter you've got here. It'd be a shame if something....happened...to it.

Probably also a good opportunity to remind Cabal members that our annual camp-out with small arms and infiltration training and bara brith bake-off is scheduled as a fringe event at this year's Invisible Solstice Ritual at Newgrange. Bring your wellies as it can get quite boggy in County Meath mid-winter.

Ok guys. You know who you are. You know where it is. You know when. There will be a free bar this year.

There is no Cabal, and it certainly doesn't have its own lodge at Bohemian Grove.

Woohoo! I mean, I don't know what you're talking about.

Does free bar come with open beer?

Sorry, not in the import/export or waste management business...but if someone can help me get rid of a body I'd appreciate it.

Thanks, in advance.

Assuming you have it inside a house where you can work on it a bit, the first thing you want to do is drain it of fluids...

How 'bout people who've paid to download the FSI foreign language course?

Your Canadian brethren eagerly await the report on this internal meeting.

Best job in the world!
