You inspired me to work on my own uberlist last night at 1am.. So many things, I hope I can get even a few of them crossed off the list.

I am happy to help you with food photography, stationery, bookbinding and/or letterpress (which fell off your list!) whenever there's a good time to come visit.. Also, sf center for the book (www.sfcb.org) has really good book arts classes, many of which are scheduled for weekends!

Any time you need someone to test out your foie gras, you call me right up!

Now, I know there are close places outside the US, like canada, mexico, and (sorta) guatemala. But might I hint at a fine extra-american destination known for a couple of damn good writers and really good beer?

When are you going to Barcelona? I'll be there the last weekend of June/a couple weeks into July...
