We need a :pledge: emoticon.

We need a link to 30 Days of Eris because I can't seem to find it.

I'm slowly working my way through 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. It was a gift. Giving someone a 1000+ page book by a Japanese author seemed strange to me, but the story is, if not exciting, then at least interesting enough to continue reading.

While at home, I have the Collected Works of Shirley Jackson, specifically reading We Have Always Lived in the Castle. The girl who sent it to me has a tattoo based on the story and she's told me that the few pieces of my own that she's read remind her of Shirley Jackson (Little Lucy Goes to Build-a-Bear, Trivia Notes). From what I've read so far, that is an enormous compliment.

It's a "you get out of it what you put into it" thing with food like that, and there is not a piece of meat in the world that I love more than a fresh sea scallop so if I'm making them for someone else they're gonna taste all that love.

I was going to say due to my general distaste for driving, a 5+ hour trip is probably not going to happen but then this post gave me a mild erection.

The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts / Re: Apology

This is a very practical apology. You can bump it every time you fuck up.

I think I'll put something like this in my signature so it applies to every post that I make. This one, for example.

95
To be fair...

I did give the ok for them to take his penis.

 :lulz:

Lobster's fine but it ain't got a thing on scallops.

ECH I'd love to visit your restaurant.

If I recall, you and Mr. Squid passed some tastes of that around at the 2011 Meatup? I'm pretty happy to have had a beer that people got bludgeoned over. It makes my beerpeen swell with pride.

I'm sorry it got ruined for you, I remember when you were really excited for Hunahpu and Hunahpu Day.

On the plus side, the other hit beverage of the weekend - Budweiser & Clamato Cheleda in a Can, is bountiful and easily acquired. My review, mysteriously, never made it onto Beer Advocate.

Ah, yes.  Caveats for the others, then.

I will pass that on.  Dimo says he's solvent, not so sure about the others.

Richter will make time from his convention to attend, or I will stomp on a street urchin.

I'm fine with that. And yeah, the 21st is good, so count me in.

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: weird money idea

I hate pennies. Useless crap that clogs up my pockets. Some people save them like shiny rocks in huge jars to someday trade them for $37.50. I just throw every penny I get right in the trash.

Into the trash it goes.

I love how this is written. There's something appealing about it that I can't place.

It's also, while not a thing I agree with, a more sensible money idea than the OP.

Yeah I'm not getting it. It presumes, somehow, that Audrey Hepburn is not one of the most venerated actresses of all time. And it ignores that Marilyn Monroe's public persona, which it addresses, was largely an act put on by a very troubled woman with surprising hidden depths.

102
In other news, my desk phone has mysteriously been beaten to death.

Common problem, although I thought they'd recalled that model.

103
And now it's motherfucking yoga time.

I fucking hate yoga.

 :eek: Isn't yoga, like, a hobby kind of thing?

If you don't do yoga, they kick you out of Portland.

104
Perfect.   :lulz:

On the other hand, the 17th...

You ever see movies, where there's a corporate heavy who shows up and causes all manner of trouble?

That's me, a week from Monday. I am going to Ohio to deliver threats of Doom to the manufacturer of the jet mill that's been causing us so much trouble.  And while I know that I will be shot by the hero or eaten by an alien before it's all over, I shall enjoy my status as The Villain until that occurs.

Correction:  Hannover, MA, not Ohio.  Easy mistake, anyone could have done it.  :lulz:

FUCKS SAKE THAT PUTS ME IN THE BLAST ZONE
