Lemony states, I think Lemony said it, in the erzats elevator about going to a dinner or party of 12 but only 11 showed up because...the 12th invitee had...something going on...I don't remember clearly....If you know what I mean...Is this a possible clue? I dunno if this has been previously questioned on these boards.
I don't recall that in any of the books. Perhaps it slipped my mind. If someone could find the text, we would be grateful. Also, it probably is a useless little story, like, the restaurant I am in is slowly filling with water, or a hammock, like a coffin, cinema or shark tank is not a pleasant place to be in and the baudelaires....
I lent my copy of TEE to my friend, but doesn't Esme say 'I was having lunch with twelve millionaires this morning, and eleven of them definatley said they were coming to the in auction. The twelfth had...'
But like you, I can't remember his bussiness. Oh, and I doubt it's a clue of any sort.
I keep noticing that almost every time there's a largish group of people present/mentioned, they number thirteen. Also, it is simply astonishing how many of the people involved with the series (actual people, ie Daniel Handler and Brett Helquist and Meredith Heuer and Alison Donalty...) have thirteen letters in their name.
I think the absent millionaire was had going to a birthday party to demonstrate how young he or she was.
I go to bed early and rise late and feel as if I have hardly slept, probably because I have been reading almost the entire time
I can't remeber that bit does any 1 have the page number
It is on page 46 of TEE.
Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it. - C.S. Lewis
Germes: I think inviting new people to join us is a good idea.

Germes: I think Bee did something similar at some point in the past.

Germes: And even earlier, there was a plan to stick 667 flyers in copies of ASOUE in bookshops. At least one person did join us because of that.

Sherry Ann: Didn't someone get kicked out of / asked to leave a bookstore for putting 667 bookmarks in ASOUE books?

Stay-at-homet: Just updated my profile to express my hopes that everyone stays home and safe. I tried to give my avatar a mask, but it ended up looking more like Patrick from Spongebob in overalls.

Jean Lúcio: It was great for me. I also put a mask on my Avatar.
