Notes: I wrote all the fidgetglyphs for this book during a five-hour meeting at work on 24 October 2007. I wrew each of these with my favorite fountain pen, which I have filled with purple ink for the past many months, so the ink I used in this book was permanent purple art pen ink. Originally, I was not going to include the two pwoermds created on the 24th—"scighte" and "h { o [ l ( l < o > w ) i ] n } g") in the book—even though they had fidgetglyphic characteristics, but I relented once I realized that those two poems were what I needed to fill the book.

Type of Publication: Leaflet

Type of Work: Dinner Menu

Physical Description: A single sheet of yellow 8½" X 11" paper ink-jet printed in black on one side.

Number of copies: 20

pdqb number: 117

Other series numbers: None

Note: Attendees at this event were Geof, Nancy, Erin, and Tim Huth, Jimmy Long, Denis Meadows, Laura Weiskotten, Ann Marie Przybyla, and David Lowry and Rob Gavel.

Editorial note: To simplify my day a little, I did not create today's Pumpkin Day menu in the traditional folded mini-booklet form. I just get too busy creating a feast to spend time carefully making a menu, especially since changes arise in the menu at the last moment. Erin actually printed out this menu for me just before dinner. One note on the menu, Rob Gavel made the pumpkin bisque, which was the highlight of the evening, and David Lowry, Ann Marie Przybyla, and Denis Meadows brought along plenty of the beverages listed on this sheet.
