This thangy grew in my toad lily. John's toad lily. Maybe Corydalis sempervirens. The flowers are quite small, actually -- about 1 cm long.

2:40 pm - B'WestFest Final Update

Dinner will be at 6pm. Menu is make-your-own mexifood (tacos and burritos).

Last minute pleas:

* Let us know if you'll be there for Sunday brunch (11am). Plans might change to going-out if the group is very small. At-home plans include vegan pancakes (I'm told they are excellent), bacon, eggs, and, uh. What do you need in life besides bacon?

* Let us know if you plan to stay over. Unplanned is fine, but you might not get a fluffy pillow.

* If you're bringing anything that wants table or floor space, help us organize by letting us know what it is.

2:47 pm - BeanWestFest approaches!

Some of the best parties we've been to share a couple of things in common: great people and novel experiences. On the last weekend of August, come meet people you know and people you should know, and share something new with them at a party you don't have to host!

Laurie, Raven, John, and Anastasia present
BeanWestFest 2006!
Noon on Saturday, August 26 - noon on Sunday, August 27.
(We'll do a casual lunch on Saturday, warm up as the day progresses, and peter out sometime on Sunday.)

To RSVP, respond to your email link. Comment to beanwest.invites@gmail.com if you have not received an email with house info by August 8.

Loose schedule to follow as things shape up.

Bring your friends!

8:29 pm - mantisquee!

Sadly, I did not notice that the camera was set to low resolution until I downloaded. These could benefit from some cropping.

Seattle, WA (December 13, 2005) – Bean West, the largest subsidiary of Bean Dynasty Enterprises (BDE) (Nasdaq: BEEN), has named neversremedy The Hon. Mme. Saucier, Küchebohne; lotusdragon has been appointed Bean of Cups. These positions are effective on October 29, 2005.

neversremedy will supervise a cast of thousands, with lotusdragon assisting with oral communications and in the princessing department.

"Meow," says a source close to the couple. "Aiow ow aii(n)h," he added. He reports being very satisfied with the current trickle-down approach to feedings.

Longstanding Bean Dynasty executives include BeanKeep, KimsterBean, LaLoBean, and NoNiBean. Further hiring is expected to be announced over the next three weeks.


Bean West, the US Pacific Coast branch of BDE, opened in June 2004, with the mission of emBeaning under-served portions of Greater Cascadia.
