To go with the veggie chilli

Mutton curry
Monkey on a stick (Satay Pork and chicken)
Coconut rice
Tropical Fruits...pawpaw, mango, lychee, banana etc

Enough? >biggergrin<

Popping my head over the gunwale again.

Where I worked had an office activity day out a few years ago. There was a choice of activities one of which was driving a JCB (digger) in a competition to see who could stack the most tyres in a given time. It was great fun especially as I won.

We also drove a 4x4 over a cross county course blindfolded and a hotrod style buggy over the same course. All concluded by a BBQ. A really great day out.  >star<

I dunno about the mutton curry, Stalwart, but the rest of it sounds A-OK  >biggrin<

OldTone, was it one of those 'team-building activity' days??  A jolly during work-hours, in other words  ;-)  My miserable lot never did anything like that, we never even had office Christmas parties - though that was apparently because someone once got so drunk that they fell out of a window  >yikes<   

Just as well alcohol is banned from this ship, I can see the potential for much falling off the plank rather than walking it  >lol<

No, not a team building day thank goodness. We didn't go in for that sort of thing. It was an engineering based company so much too practical for that.

This was a purely social event. We usually had Xmas dinner plus couple of social days a year.

Office parties did get banned where I worked before when the Architects had a riot after an Xmas party.

 >lol<  I'd never have thought of architects being a bit of a wild bunch... Mind you, we civil servants weren't all stuffy, jobsworth box-tickers either  ;-)

I must go to my cabin for a wash and brush up ready for the combined dinner efforts of Seegee and Stalwart ...

Quite a few of our architects were Bohemian types who seemed quite strange to naive young engineer.

Hello Kizzy Kazaer, Old Tone, Suessad,Seegee,Stalwart.

You have all been invited to my table as I want to develop a stratagy to design Sir Cumefrence's restrant,posh nosh shop I think it should reflect the owner/manager/chef's personilty (robust,sturdy,genours+flamboyant ) When the new mischrant chef Sasha condersends to grace us with his presance I think he will enjoy doing the intariour design as he made a very good effort of the BOG

Sasha PROMISEDto be our chef

*polite cough*

Sorry, Captain - I think you'll find that it was more like you demanded I be your chef.

I do my best, but I am temperamental indeed  >erm< >wolf< >sheep<

We're in safe hands with seegee, though - the veggie chilli sounds good   >thumbsup< >biggrin<

I orderd you to be chef because I thought you were after Sir Cumefrebce's job + you were fighting a duel with butter knifves so I thought you were serious about been top chef + after all this I kind of told Sir Cumefrence his service's were'nt needed. So now you can appriciate my wrath + to top it off you say your culenriy skills  are basic OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO you drive me around the bend all I can surgest is Seegee might take a nimcom poop under her genors wing + save your bacon now leave before I say something I  might regret  >steam< >steam< >steam< >yikes< >yikes< >angry< >angry< >angry< >angry<

Old Tone: That sounds brilliant. Stacking tyres in a given time, driving blindfolded, BBQ ending.

I like it.

Can I interest you in the job of Events Organiser at my new bar - cafe? Obviously, staff motivation and "bonding" will NOT be part of the job - no way - the main thing is that everybody has a fab time with loads of grills and puddings.

If you would be kind enough to send me your CV I shall do everything I can to "swing it" your way.

Thank you

Sir Cumference
Director

I am not a cook, let alone a chef.  :-(
I was out in the very early morning yesterday & saw some local veg, etc (including chilli peppers) that looked very good.  >biggrin<
If you are relying on me for food most days you will get very hungry.  >crying<

I am also vegetarian & have no idea at all how to prepare or cook dead animals for eating.  >yikes<
I'm sure some people on board would get tired of no fish, cow, sheep, pig, squirrel, horse or any other animal meat.  ;-)

Thank you for the job offer Sir C, but hot climes don't suit me even though the grills and puddings sound very tempting. The other problem is that I did not organise the event. You will note from my CV that I cannot organise a p*** up in a brewery. Regretfully I will have to decline your offer.

If you need a digger driver to stack tyres I might be available for short term hire, and I am not too bad if you need a blindfolded chauffeur.

Hello Stalwart

I think you want us to stay in Brazil until 2013 so you can complete Sir Cumefrence's beach side Bar/Cafe so you can be your friend's first paying coustumer (ha ha) but as we have the best P.V solar pannels money can buy I think we have enough enagy to go at the end of Augest + be fast enough to get in to an safe/ice free harbour before any serious trouble (remember Scott of the Artic only had a wooden boat + that was NOT crushed to destruction) + I am CAPTAIN
