the logo was inspired by a picture of the site's admins, taken at at the yearly discusscooking conference in hawaii.

from left to right, it's a picture of pa baker getting loaded; andy m. just after a trip to aruba; gb stirring fondue (you did guess "cheesey); and finally, that's either middie or kitchenelf, standing on the right.

Oh. I was always wondering. So I'm gussing its more than one pic put together instead of just one pic of everybody.

EDIT: Got your private message Bucky. Thought I'd make it public that you're a liar liar pants on fire!

oh no, that's almost the real picture. andy m. is one of those touchy/talky annoying people. you know the kind. gb is just trying to get the fondue right, and there's andy, constantly tapping gb on the arm, like he forgets that they're in the middle of a conversation.

and pa baker, well, lets just say she traded in the wine bottle for milk bottles ever since sofie came around.

and there's middie, in her loud, low-cut red dress, always trying to get attention. short people...sheesh.
hey, i just noticed, where is gb looking anyway.

Man, I didn't realize the creators of this site were all friends who see each other in real life and stuff. I don't know why I wouldn't think anyone would know each other, I guess I never really thought about it.

Here's the thing I noticed from the get-go:
why does GB's hairpiece sitting so crooked? Look closely.
And, apparently we knew he'd be shaving his beard, so the picture was made as a pre-cursor to the event.

I wouldn't have to be touchy/talky and annoying if GB would just listen to me so the fondue came out right! It would also help if he looked at what he was supposed to be doing instead of 'you know what'.

Are you sure Geebs isn't asleep? Maybe he had too many of Ronjohn's concoctions at the convention.
