Wed February 17 at 8:00 PM, The Pub
682 Broadway, Somerville, MA, USA (Map & Directions)
Actually, if we survive this weekend, Wednesday at 8pm the weather should be downright tropical! Let's hope there are no frostbitten Taters at The Pub this week for Geeks Who Drink trivia!

I froze my taters off this weekend (was -18ºF in Randolph VT), so I'm travelling to AZ this week to grow them back.

I think it's fair to say that this is a high risk naming strategy, but I have just been made aware that a "cunctator" is "one who delays or lingers." Otherwise, I propose "All Tater Diet".

The all-tater diet supposedly worked for Byron, but who knows how much he lost just by having various social diseases.

OED *tater:

distater, n. 1895 An ancient Greek gold coin, of the value of two staters.
Free Stater, n. 1865 A native or inhabitant of a free state, as the Irish Free State (192237), or the Free State (formerly the Orange Free State)...
tater, n. 1759

These all suck!

Alas, I will be at TotalCon playing Castles of Burgundy tonight in Mansfield. I'll be rooting for you all though!
