Taking into consideration those who stated a preference, ganging POLers with fellow POLers, and MUAers with fellow MUAers (as much as I'm aware of your affiliations), and keeping my chauffeur at my side, then falling back on alpha order by username (are you following all this?), I've divvied us up into the two following two clans:
Those who report to the L'Artisan boutique at 10 a.m. are:
The Refined One
The Refined One's guest
Those who report to the Bigelow shop at 10 a.m. are:
Manic Boy's girlfriend
Snakesandladders' wife (cancelled)
If you have any problems with these assignments, PLMK.
At noon, everybody convenes at Tucci Benucch except Ubuandibeme & guest, who have opted out. Paul G and Nattygold--are you in for lunch?
After lunch, the blue group heads to Bigelow and the green group waddles down to L'Artisan. At some point in the afternoon, we will see someone streaking into L'Artisan--this will be Pebbles, fresh from the airport.
(WHOOPS--just found The Refined One's note about catching a plane in the afternoon, so will move her up into the blue group and shuffle Lisa down into the green group.)
