Subject: Lobster at SINSULL's by reservation!
From: SINSULL
Date: 05 Jul 05 - 11:14 AM

July 30th 6PM
although anyone experienced in killing the little buggers is welcome as early as possible.

I need you to PM me by July 10th if you plan on attending. Tami's friend is giving us the lobsters at boat cost and I have to get the order in IN ADVANCE.

If you do not eat lobster (like me), there will be steaks on the grill.

$10 per lobster charge - I can't afford this one. There will be a jar to drop your cash in.

Let me know how many you want.

Kendall can have mine.

He's also very good at hypnotising the little dears before they go in the pot so we'll get there early to help out.

an Ice pick right at the joint of the body and the shell works well - but most experts say it is really just as quick to pop them in the pot of boiling water.

Almost off topic, but not quite...Mother's Day my B-I-L and I were making lobster Thermidor for dinner - and trying to get the meat out of all those little legs is a major pain in the a***!!!! We found a rolling pin would squeeze it out quite nicely! Next time we're going to see if the Pasta Machine will work - it would be even faster!

It's easy to hypnotize them. Just hold it in one hand and hub its back with the other. They will go from trying to snap your fingers off to standing on their heads if you do it right.Then, while they are still out, you just pop them into the boiling water and they don't feel a thing.

They don't have the same kind of nervous system as we have, and they only react to dangerous stimuli. In other words, they don't feel pain as we do.

I've actually done this kind of thing on a regular basis and would be happy to execute the little buggers in the traditional Maine style. My preference is to stick them in the bathtub where they get drunk on the fresh water. Of course if someone wants to use the bathtub for bathing, the lobsters are probably incompatible.

It looks like JudyD and I are both available to come. Should we bring an extra stainless steel pot?

Are you doing corn on the cob as well? That will take another large pot.

Do you want a pickup truck full of seaweed and a tarp?

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

All pots are welcome. Corn would be good too. I haven't figured out the logistics yet - depends on how many plan to attend.

Kendall, just how does one "hub" a lobster in polite company? And how does the llama feel about this? For that matter, how does Jacqui feel about this?

MMario... rolling pin? I find the best for getting the meat out of the little legs for making such culinary delights is a can opener. Just don't tell anyone. And, you can always put a bandaid on your thumb to really sell it.

Minds me... SINS... sounds like you might have a few novices at the boil. Best have some peroxide, polysporin and bandages on hand. Nothing will fester faster than a lobster "wound". Nasty little buggers; even after ya b'il 'em.

Ahhh, lobster and crackers and beer. Mmmmm. Now, lobster and corn and beer? Hmmmm. Better add a surcharge for some portable outhouses.

Hmmm . . . we'll never be able to explain to a newbie how to extract the meat from the little claws and the body -- so they'll just have to give them to me and I'll demonstrate so they'll know how to do it the next time! ;-)

What's REALLY fun to watch is when a tourist is confronted by a whole lobster on the plate -- beady eyes staring straight up into theirs. I've been very fortunate to be in the vicinity several times (back when I was living in Cape Porpoise) and ended up with the lobster (gratis) after the said tourists ordered a cheeseburger or maybe broiled bluefish.

Charley -- if you're doing it RIGHT, there's no room left for corn on the cob (or even potato chips). Lobster -- butter -- drop cloth -- what more do you need?!?

"Lobster -- butter -- drop cloth -- what more do you need?!?"

Why homemade mayonaise, of course! Melted butter, indeed!

This discussion reminds me of one of Jon Campbell's immortal lines from his "Winnebago" song:

Watch a mobster eat a lobster, are you feeling sad?

My family also traditionally boils up a big bowl of potatos, which no one eats but it's there if needed.

Of course, the best way to cook lobsters is to build a big bonfire on the beach from drift wood, toss in some stones, let everything burn down to coals, add layers of seaweed and lobsters, corn, and whatevers, cover the whole thing with an old CANVAS tarp, and then dig in after everything has steamed for 20 minutes. YUM!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Reason #2 why this little ranger doesn't eat lobster:

My first summer job was at Small Bros. Wharf in New Harbor, Maine. I was kitchen help/busperson. The decor included a wooden mallet and cutting board on each table. Nowhere in the restaurant was there a poster or placemat with directions for eating the lobster (who knew that food needs instructions?). David also didn't hand out crackers with the lobsters, you had to know to ask for them. Now, picture some poor tourist who has never seen a lobster before trying to figure out how to get into this thing on their plate. They reach across, grab the mallet and start swinging. VERY funny, as long as you aren't standing or sitting anywhere in the vicinity. However, as the busgirl, I got covered in lobster guts too many times to mention. I also had to scrub the walls with steel wool every night at closing. It took weeks to get the smell of dead lobster out of my clothes and pores after I quit. Ick!

want to talk decadence? Some friends and I would go to the Cape each fall for years - we would swing by the fish mart and get some fresh steamed and picked tails and clws - then go down to the shore and watch the tide while breakfasting on lobster and armenian string cheese wrapped with bacon.

Another novel way to get into a lobster is with armor-piercing shears. We first saw this being done, by the waiter, at a small place at Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia; the manager confessed it was the only way he could get the diners in and out in a timely fashion and without a mess.

Of course, you could always try a Sawsall.

Let's send Spaw a virtual claw!

Well, if we start posting the repertoire for the singaround (which will be held right after we sluice off all the buttuh, and lobstuh juice, etcet etcet), then maybe it will get back up amongst the music threads where it belongs.

Tom will sing "The Lobster" of course. And Charley, I think, knows "The Old She-Crab" or another variant.

I certainly hope I'll have recovered from this cold by then!!! (Shoulda drunk the Bushmill's Saturday night.)

Darn, Sins. I really thought that I could do it this time. However, I forgot that I have to work that weekend. It's a swap so I can have the following Th. and Fri. off. I'm going to vocal week at the Augusta Heritage Center in Elkins, WV and will be leaving on Fri. the 5th.

I'm really disappointed. Lobster is my favorite. Enjoy the evening, all you lucky people.

Then there's the ballad of Lobster Barbie which goes on for 368 verses.

"There are strange tales true..."

However, the thread title is still confusing. I doubt if the lobsters will be leading any songs, although they may join in the refrains.

Anyone know the tune to "The Lobster Quadrille"?

2 lb lobsters are really huge. 1.5 lbers are generally more than enough for mere mortals. However, my family once sat down to a 5 lb lobster feast.

Whatever! Just didn't want you to go overboard.

Hard to say which is the more amusing mental picture, hubbing lobsters or running them through a pasta maker.
Dave Barry, in "Dave Barry Is From Mars and Venus," gives a vivid description of trying not to eat lobster.
Somewhere he also makes the point that humans are born with three instinctive fears: fear of falling, fear of loud noises, and fear of lobsters. So of course the ultimate fear is making a loud noise because of falling on a lobster.
Personally, I am merely babbling in envy. Enjoy!

There are strange tales true,
I'm a-telling you,
In the waves off Mt. Desert Isle;
Where the ocean's roar,
Meets the rock-bound shore,
And the weather's something vile;
Where them lobsters grow,
In the depths below,
And men cast their lot to the sea,
But there's no tale told,
On that shore so bold,
Like the tale of Lobster Barbie!

I hope freda underhill doesn't mind me putting her Lobster Barbie song here. It seems a suitable time...

The Tale of Barbie Ellen..

In scarlet shell, with pincers swell,
there was a lobster dwelling
Made every fisherman drool and sigh
Her name was Barbie Ellen

Sweet William on the sea shore walked
He saw her slender talons
Blushed rosy pink with Barbie shoes
White flesh like tiny melons

Young William called out Barbie love
I think my heart you're breakin'
Your gingham top, your beady eyes
Have sent my thighs a achin'

But slowly slowly she crawled off
And waggled her tail right at 'im
She slid into the frothy sea
That hard hearted pink crustacean

'Twas in the merry month of May
When green seas were a swellin'
Sweet William on his death-bed lay
For the love of Barbie Ellen.

He sent his servant to the shore,
To the rocks where she was a-dwellin',
Cried, "Master bids you come to him,
If your name be Barbie Ellen."

Then slowly, slowly she crawled back,
And slowly went she did eye him,
And when she pulled the curtains back
Said, "Young man, I think you're lyin'.

"Oh, yes, I'm sick, I'm very very sick,
I'm craving soft crustaceans,
my mouth is watering at the sight
Of the fleshy Barbie Ellen."

"Oh, Ken, where are you, Ken my love
Where are you when I need you?
Sick William wants to fondle me
He's of a different breed dear."

And Ken he came in his hiking boots
Beside young William lyin',
He said William, leave my Barbie love
For she's mine for this evenin's fryin'

And Barbie's heart did snap in two
That both men would deceive her
While both men tried to flatter her
Her heart was like a cleaver

Then lightly crawled she down the stairs,
While Ken was in the kitchen
'Tis neither of you will get me now,
if my name be Barbie Ellen.

She wandered to the wide green seas
with never a glance behind her
And plunged into the ocean deep
Where nary a man could find her

and sometimes by the soft moon's light
when fisherman are a sleepin'
she sits upon the lonely rocks
a wailin' and a weepin'

will nea man love me for myself
they only want to eat me
I'll ne'er surrender to their tongues
They'll never yet defeat me

From William's grave hung a fisherman's line,
And from Ken's a copper griddle,
While Barbie Ellen e'er does dwell
Where nae man dares to meddle..

Judy and I drove down to Five Islands and had a lobster dinner on the wharf there, just to keep in practice. Now the view includes traditional fishing boats, the other four islands (you're standing on the 5th one if you're wondering), black-headed seagulls, a few very hungry mosquitoes, and a view of the Sheepscot River.

However, Mary's backyard's not bad, especially after several bottles of Guiness, rum, or bourbon. Still, there's something to be said about eating lobsters on the wharf in Five Islands, while sipping our Australian chardonay.

Probably served or cooked by a member of my crew (who also works there when he's not park rangering), and caught by the lobsterman who'll be supplying the lobsters for the feast at Sinsull's. So, Charley, you'll get the exact same lobsters, just without the view! It's a very small world, indeed.

Exactly what we needed so very, very badly, provided in exactly the right way with wine, whiskey and song. Dripping with butter and absolutely succulent. ( The lobster boys, the lobster)

Oh and there has to be a song in the lobster that escaped being mesmerized by Kendall (Ever see a lobster stand on it's head???) The poor soul that escaped boiling only to keep jumping out of the refrigerator trying to escape each time an unsuspecting soul opened the door.

Thanks, Sinsull, for a lovely lobster boil. We certainly had a great time consuming mussels, shrimps, cheese and hardtack, and lobsters fresh from the ocean. There was also cheesecake, apple crisp, ice cream, and a box of chocolate truffles. Someone else has to describe the wines, beer, and harder liquors.

I think there was singing afterwards but my last conscious memory was of a lobster standing on it's head, or maybe it was of the large one I was waltzing around with in the back yard.

I do hope there were more survivors!

You call that a lobster? Doesn't even have claws!

Funny you mention blue, Gnu. The one we set free had bluish tints. We do occasionally have red variants in the live population. Also yellow, and a mix of any of the above colors, referred to as "calico". My best friend's dad used to work at a marine research center that was doing a study on color variations in lobsters, so I know waaaaay too much on the subject.

The last of the house guests left this AM. I had to go to work. Late night supper ar the Olive Garden where he once again misbehaved but no food fight. Flying coasters at 20 paces.

What a great weekend. Lots of food (although I no longer consider mussels as food), lots of drink, and lots of music shared by a laughing rowdy crowd. Jets' wife Frances was a pleasant surprise - I believe she even made Tinker blush. No small feat! Something about Frances "going up" and jets "going down"?????

Jacqui's desserts were delicious and just right after a seafood feast. Can't say I was pleased to find a cooler full of live lobsters about midnight. Did I really call Kendall at 1 AM to complain?

Dani's poem to kendall - I remember some of it- needs to be posted here for posterity. As does Julia's Lewiston Working Girl song.

Thank you all for a memorable evening.
Love,
SINS

I had quite a bit of wine and something else in a bottle.

Yeah, well, when the one you sent to me gets back there, you're gonna see your first chocolate one. Hmmm, you could tell Kendall it's a dessert lobster and save on the rotten fish. Just boil it an extra few minutes.

Yes, SINS, you really did call Kendall and jacqui that late (early?) to grouse about the hidden cache of lobsters. The look on your face was priceless when you realized Jay-boy was sitting at your table talking to one of them. That's the one that was sent, on its own recognizance, to Gnu, via the Atlantic. And yes, we did take the bands off its claws first! Picture Dani's face when she realizes that she's not giving us a ride home, but to the beach to liberate a lobster. She's a good sport, that's for sure.

Yes, sending off Dani and the Lobster Liberation Brigade will be one of my clear memories of the evening. I'm pretty sure someone snapped a photo of Jason will the lobster up on his shoulder being gently stroked and calmed....

Dani and I enjoyed the Captn's chowder the next day along with a side of lobster....Now Kendall I can't judge your chowder against Rudy's (diner) since you "suggested" we add a bit of lobster to yours they were clearly two very different experiences. We'll have to have a retry next time.

Although Mary typed "he" I have to admit we ladies (Dani, SINSULL and I) were playing coaster hockey on our own and Kendall had nothing to do with it..... Well, he did set the example by starting the food fight earlier.... but....

Dani and I had a great ride down the coast today and and I am clearly suffering from a bit of culture shock as I move back into major Mama mode. But life is very good.

Pictures have been sent to Jeff but I think he is waiting to add them until they have got the bugs out of the system.

Kendall had the last of the lobsters, includung the fridge escapee, in lobster rolls at the hospital after he came round from the biopsy. I don't think the nurses there had ever seen anyone eating that particular delicacy as a 'recovery' food.

Sent my (film) photos off yesterday, so will prolly have them available on-line before the end of the week. I don't have anywhere other than Mudcat to post them to, so they won't be available for general consumption until the bugs (and I don't mean lobsters!) are out of the system.

Jeff still hasn't put up my photos from the May Sinsull Sing and I haven't sent along the June ones yet, because he's not doing anything until all the necessary work on Mudcat is taken care of.

Don't forget the uninvited guest -- how DID that elegant looking slug get in the middle of the livingroom floor anywho?

This is the song I wrote about being the 'surprise' visitor at Sinsull's.

I don't think I've ever written a song before! It sure was fun to sing it with you all.

It's taken me this long to figure out how to get it off my laptop ; )

Dani


(To Molly Malone or Cockles and Mussels)

In South Portland city
where the lobsters are pretty
Our setting's the home of the lovely Sinsull
She had wine and chili
and cats that were silly
She cried, come in and see Him
Alive, alive-oh

Alive, alive-oh
Alive, alive-oh
Crying come in and see Him
Alive, alive-oh

Despite Tinker's patience
and calm navigation
The journey was longer than either had hoped
but through singing and chatting
and general Mudcatting
They had finally, Oh finally
Arrived, arrived-oh

Arrived, arrived-oh
Arrived, arrived-oh
They had finally, Oh finally
Arrived, arrived-oh

Sweet Kendall was quiet
Not for this man a riot
But wide-eyed and startled it's quite clear he had
Expected a Big Mick
But instead of the big man
With Tinker is Dani
Surprise, surprise-oh

Surprise, surprise-oh
Surprise, surprise-oh
With Tinker is Dani
Surprise, surprise-oh

Big Mick would have been here
But swinging in full gear
With golden cape waving he's saving the world
Squashing foes with his right hand
Way down there in Maryland
Crying take that, you bastards
Organize, organize-oh!

Organize, organize-oh!
Organize, organize-oh!
Crying take that, you bastards
Organize, organize-oh!

Left at home was poor Janie,
who, equally zany,
Would quite have fit into this glorious romp
But next time she'll be here
With a cold glass of near-beer
'Cause singing means feeling
Alive, alive-oh

Alive, alive-oh
Alive, alive-oh
'Cause singing means feeling
Alive, alive-oh


From Jacqui a sweet kiss
And warm fluffy soft gifts
and laughter: who's dafter? Herself or The Sins?
They're plotting and making
and wise men are quaking
Crying help us, and keep us
Alive, alive-oh

Alive, alive-oh
Alive, alive-oh
Crying help us, and keep us
Alive, alive-oh

To Max be the glory
for starting this story
with Greenhaus and others who gave us this gift
Here's a glass we drink to you
May all good be with you
For keeping tradition
Alive alive-oh

Alive, alive-oh
Alive, alive-oh
For keeping tradition
Alive, alive-oh

Alive, alive-oh
Alive, alive-oh
For keeping tradition
Alive, alive-oh

I was standing there thinking
There'll be joking and drinking
Looking forward to seeing that big Irish sod,
When in through the front door
Stepped "Gorgeous Glore"
And all I could think of was "HEY, oh my God!"

Mick, my friend, I still missed you, but not as much as I might have LOL

Thanks for sharing the song Dani. Can I have the photo's too ?? Pretty Please ??? I'm really hoping for a copy of Kendall at the head of the table leading the lobster feast.

What a great time.

Two mom's running AWOL
One short and one tall
Braving the traffic jams Northbound and South
Worries and sorrows
Were left for tommorow
And just for today they're alive alive oh....

Romantic poet Gerard de Nerval (1808-1855) who, to justify his taking a lobster on a walk--on a blue silk leash--in the gardens of the Palais Royal, expostulated: "Why should a lobster be any more ridiculous than a dog...or any other animal that one chooses to take for a walk? I have a liking for lobsters. They are peaceful, serious creatures. They know the secrets of the sea, they don't bark, and they don't gnaw upon one's monadic privacy like dogs do. And Goethe had an aversion to dogs, and he wasn't mad."

Bet he didn't know they could sing though!
