NH (or anybody else) - another amazing cookbook intro is in Great British Cooking: A Well-Kept Secret by Jane Garmey. Very cheeky (as you can imagine given the book's subtitle). It made me fall in love with the book.

I am holding off a little longer before I roast my first acorn squash of the season. That is the true herald of fall cooking for me.

After all, all food is better if you think it's French.
I keep hearing this, but I've yet to find this true.

That is... oddness...

Maybe you're just eating at the wrong French places.

Julia Child's "The Art of French Cooking" is our absolute favorite cookbook by far, and her intro is side-splitting.

It goes something along the lines of, "This is not a cookbook for people who want to create a quick meal. This is not a cookbook for people who want low-fat dinners. This is a cookbook for people who love to cook, to eat, and to truly enjoy their meals."

Even the plain old roast chicken takes around an hour of "real" work as you're basting and turning and whatnot while it roasts...
...and everyone agrees it's the best roast chicken they've ever had...

I have yet to create something from that cookbook that isn't fantastic, and better than any other version from any other cookbook.

But yes, I enjoy spending all the time and effort in the kitchen to create something marvelous, so it may be a care for cooking and the willingness to buy premium ingredients that helps...

OMG. Nobodyshome is my spirit animal.

Particularly distressing because I was already freaking out. I had a big board meeting on my calendar tomorrow, and discovered this morning that my calendar was wrong and the meeting was actually in an hour and a half.

Run to print shop, run to buy a nicer dress shirt than the one I was wearing, navigate a maze of secret service blockades.. And still nailed it.

Silver Crusade

Gah. Manhattan was gridlocked today. I had to get across town and got cut off by:

The motorcade of the prime minister of Japan.

The motorcade of the president of Turkey (complete with protesters).

The motorcade of the president of Brazil (complete with even louder protesters).

It's cool, but not when you have someplace to be. Especially when that place you need to be is a few blocks from the UN...

It's official. I'm a mutant.

When the boy was born, I though for sure he was going to be a mutant. His toes had this weird shape, and it looked like they might be able to sprout claws.

Sadly, his mutation never manifested.

It's just as well. So few real life mutations are of the X-Men model...

I never warm my car up if it's above freezing, but generally only do it if it's really cold, like -20 or colder.

If you don't have an ice scrapper under your passenger seat, you're obviously not from around here.

But a CD case works in a pinch (like say, your kids take it inside put it in their room).

Correction: I never warm my car up if it's above zero.

I live in the Bay Area, where it's a rare winter morning that makes it below 35, and 28 is the lowest I've ever seen, yet since I go to the Sierras on a regular basis, I keep an ice scraper in my car.

People who see it look at me funny, like, "What's THAT thing?"

I have a friend who moved from Rochester, NY, to Los Angeles. He keeps a scraper hanging in his garage to remind himself of what he used to have to do.

Total curiosity, since we have some Midwesterners and New Yorkers out there: Is warming up the car still "a thing"?

I know that in winter when it's 5 degrees outside you don't dare move the car until the engine has heated enough to let the defroster work its magic.

But on a sunny 60 degree morning in the late summer?

(Yes, we've won the "parking war" and reclaimed our spot, but I still have to listen to cars idling for 5-10 minutes before moving, because apparently wasting gas and filling my neighborhood with fumes is still "a thing".)

I know of people that do it, but what I've heard from people who I trust on the matter is it's entirely unnecessary with newer cars. I do let it warm up if it is below freezing (just for a minute or so if it is just below freezing, longer if it is truly frigid.)

I hate mornings. "The dawn's early light" is for the birds, if they'd only shut up about it. Then, when you stack summertime temperatures on top of the ultimate rudeness of workdays that begin at 6 AM, I find I want to hibernate like the bear that is my namesake, just during the opposite season.

To those of you who enjoy the AM hours, I salute your madness with a smile and a raised glass. Don't hate me 'cause I am allied with Winter and Night. :)

I am with you. I have gotten better, though. I no longer grouse if I have to be up at 8:00. (Yes, I frequently get up earlier than that. I just don't like it.) I used to be more of a 10:00 guy.

That said, my coworkers know not to approach me with difficult questions before 11:00.

I decided to take a wolf animal companion for Nathaniel - I like the idea, but it is probably not the best class feature for urban adventuring. I am assuming at this point the wolf is either lurking outside town somewhere (assuming the ship captain would have agreed to ferry it over here and back) or else it is back in Mordentshire.

CH, are you happy to keep this loose until we decide on next steps for the group, or would you prefer I either lock in a location OR change the animal companion class feature to something else (there is another standard option which gives companions temporary partial access to your favoured enemy ability)?

We can rough it for the time being. I agree that the toymaker's shop is not the best place for a wolf. You can decide later where it has been left, per the first paragraph of your post.

Treppa is weird and funny and fun. And she has an endless supply of exotic spiders. Browsing through the characters she plays (and Sylvia looks like a lot of fun to roleplay and roleplay with; you have some lucky fellow players) has given me the quote: "Extinguish that elf! Staunch the gnome!"

She has a really entertaining sense of humor. I might start reading that PbP, actually...

Are there naked people you'd like to see in political office?

I was going to point out Traci Lords, but apparently in spite of her "legitimate" film career, she never ran for office.

There's also this list, but it looks like Italy is the home of "former porn stars who actually get elected".

I am disappointed in the U.S. for not electing a single former porn star.

I am disappointed in the list in that no men are listed. Don't male porn stars ever run for office? Or are they just put out to pasture, wandering aimlessly through the green hills in their overalls with no shirts, chewing their cud?

(Sorry... the image popped into my head and I HAD to share...)

That's pretty much what Aaron Shock is doing. And I and many others would gladly have looked at him in the nude.

Last night of brief Atlantic City excursion. Since the lodging and meals were paid for, and given that I have won more at the casinos than I started with, I would probably come out ahead, if not for my poor Will save vs outlet stores. (Still, I got quite a bit of stuff rather cheaply.)

Has Geico gotten better? My mom worked for them when she was young and she says they have a strict policy of ripping people off. And every time I get a quote from them they are at least twice the cost of progressive.

It usually depends on the state. Which carriers are cheapest varies widely from place to place.

Silver Crusade

Seriously. I would mostly just want to play video games and watch reruns of Archer. That leaves very little time for world domination.

I went to Geico a few years back when Travelers was going to jack up my rates about 80% when I moved to greater NYC. Geico was about 60% cheaper than my Travelers renewal. After the wedding I might hop on John's USAA policy though (his dad is a retired Navy captain).
