Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Efraims Daughter Longstocking is what the fiery and mischievous heroine of the Swedish childrens story claims her full name to be, or in her native tongue: Pippilotta Viktualia Rullgardina Krusmynta Efraimsdotter Långstrump. Its certainly a mouthful, and the Nordic Heritage Museum is offering a mouthful of another kinddelicious and also Swedishto go with the Pippi theme: pancakes. For Breakfast at Pippis (which precedes a screening of an original Pippi movie), the girl with the most unusual strength (often described as that of 10 policemen) is combined with the most delicate of lace-thin breakfast items, and the organizers encourage attendees to dress like Pippi or one of her pals. So throw on that gravity-defying fire-engine-red braided wig thats been wasting away in the closet and switch up the regular Bloody Mary brunch for something a bit more wholesome. But remember: its not Halloween. Slutty Pippis should steer clear. Breakfast 1011:30 a.m., movie at noon.
