What is this tan you speak of? :P

I have two settings: ghost and boiled lobster. I used to get so jealous of my sisters because they would get tan over the summer and I would not in spite of spending the same time outside. But at least I never have to worry about tan lines. ^.^

Glad you had a fun day,Aranna, and I'm sure the tan lines won't be that bad. :)

Thanks.

Hmmm... there is a skill involved in tanning. Perhaps your sister knows the skill and you do not? Really it is as simple as knowing what sunscreen works best for your skin type and applying it correctly. A skill I made a point to learn after going to Florida when I was six and ending up a boiled lobster by the time we came back.

Nah, it's just my phenotype. I've tried all the sunscreens. None of them can teach my body how to produce melanin. :P

I give lessons.

Several people up-thread have mentioned variations on "How do they know you're really a Paladin?". Probably because the real Paladins are going to cut you into little pieces if you're not... I doubt fake Paladins are going to get off easy. So, for awhile you fake it, word gets around and your head leaves your shoulders. And the next would be fake "paladin" considers a new scam.
If an order of Paladins was willing to slice and dice someone for wearing paladin armour and doing good deeds without the direct ascent of god, I don't think I'd consider them the good guys.

read a good short story about that once. Didn't end well for the charlatan.

Peas and corn definitely coming up, the moles didn't eat the corn as I had feared when I saw it's little tunnels criss crossing the row of corn. Might lose another melon plant as the dog steps on it because I stupidly planted it where the rabbits come through the fence. Or as we call it during the day The Bunny Highway. At night it takes a darker turn as the owl turns out yard into a killing field. Also we have a Muskrat in the field, saw it trying to climb the fence. A big one too.

I love spring!!

sounds like a lot of commotion. Winter sounds much calmer.

I don't understand why employees steal from the registers. You're on camera, the managers know damn well when the register is off, they know who rang up what and when, and if you just clean out a register and run ($400 if you're lucky, at least where I work), they know where you live and what your SSN and stuff is to tell the cops. The risk is just so disproportionate to the reward.

The unfortunate fact is, most criminals are criminally stupid.

Watch interviews with the guy who inspired, "Catch Me If You Can". They're very telling. There are generally three types of criminals:

(1) Those too stupid/amoral/immature to understand the consequences. "I want x. So I will take x. Because I have a right to x because I want it."
Welcome to 90+% of the "criminal world".

(2) Those too desperate to care about the consequences. These are the saddest. Jean ValJean and all that.

(3) Those who think they're "too smart" to get caught. These are the really dangerous ones, because on rare occasions they REALLY are that smart. But usually they're just as pathetic as Type I, and even more self-entitled.

most petty criminals are desperate folks, not really dumb, just a combination of scared, wanting, sly and boorish. I work with this type of criminal a lot at the main job.

I think one of the most fascinating areas of research in psychology today is what I'd call the "entrenched political viewpoint" phenomenon:

Most listeners dismiss any evidence to the contrary of their current viewpoints, no matter how convincing, and accept and remember any supporting evidence, no matter how sketchy.

It's the only way I can understand Trump's success; any monkey given $1 million and sound investment advice starting in the late 70's/early 80's would be a billionaire by now; failing to fail doesn't exactly make him a business "genius". Yet every day he lies outrageously or proposes the impossible, and the public eats it up.

No matter your political leanings, I hope that Trump's candidacy gives you pause, simply because it is, in its foundation, not based on any facts whatsoever.

That's just scary.

And it's politics, so I'll shut up...

I'm a master of "improvised cooking" - I can take a look at a cabinet full of random foods that seem like they'd never go together and usually throw something together that's about a 7/10.

What should I do?" and I'd just kind of figure something out and he'd be like "Yeah, that was actually pretty good!"

the desire and ability to pay for quality ingredients for a meal is largely related to issues of culture, location, and economics.

Interestingly enough, my wife and I were talking about this recently with respect to food deserts and such.

Oh, I'm far more aware of *that* little pitfall than you might think.

My parents were making a combined six-figure income in the 1970's. Yet they were both scientists. Food was simply something to fuel the body. The less time and thought put into it, the better.
I tell people that I learned to cook in self defense. They think I'm joking. Then I tell them tales of Gallo wine, Generic Beer, Lucerne Ice Milk, and pork chops or salmon steaks cooked at 425 for 25 minutes and they realize I'm not kidding.

The ads that say things like, "Meat loaf just like your mom used to make" send me into giggle fits.

On the other hand, two of our gaming friends are foodies who are trying to survive with two kids on under $30k/year in the bay area. Their poverty is appalling, considering she's a full-time teacher. But they have spent an amazing amount of time figuring out which low-end foodstuffs are good enough to eat, and which aren't. And they make a mean Dr. Pepper pulled pork.

So it really does boil down to, "Do you care about food, and do you either have the money to buy the 'good stuff' or the time and patience to figure out which of the 'cheap stuff' is usable?"

And for some people, the answer to both is, "No", and I respect that.

Unfortunately, for the player in question, he's a HUGE food lover, and really loves my garlic bread, so I feel like I vastly let him down by producing such a sub-par non-edible, and it's rather embarrassing to be reputed to be this really good cook, to produce something that awful, and to be far too polite to say, "Oh, it's all the host's fault! He unknowingly bought cheap stuff!"
That is a level of rudeness to which I will never aspire. Heck, I didn't even complain privately to the host. He...

wine beer and ice milk...all in the same dish? I don't understand.

Sometimes it's nice to have your world view confirmed, but frustrating that you cannot convince others of its validity.

I try very hard to convince people that the quality of the ingredients determines the quality of the final dish. My favorite example of this is my oft-quoted oatmeal cookies story, which I think I've posted here more than once:
"Your oatmeal cookies are fantastic! Can I have the recipe?"
"It's the one on the Quaker Oatmeal box."
"Oh, I've tried that one, and the cookies come out terrible."
"Did you use good ingredients?"
"Why should I waste money on brand name ingredients? Butter is butter. Cinnamon is cinnamon. They're all the same."
*SIGH*

(Most) High-end restaurants cost more and taste better because they're spending a mint on top-level ingredients. Yeah, the staff and kitchen get paid significantly more, and there's the "chi chi" factor, but a lot of the price of the dish really is the price of the ingredients.

So anyway, a long prelude to yesterday's fiasco. I make good garlic bread. As in, "So good that I've started having to make two full loaves for four people because they rip through it so fast."

And it's not like I spend a mint: Local bakery (Acme) sourdough or sour batard, Berkeley Farms butter, the abysmal McCormick garlic powder (never buy McCormick for anything that can't sit on a shelf for 10 years, because that's how long it tastes like their stuff has been there), and plain old Kraft grated parmesan. We're not talking artisan bread here.

Anyway, yesterday was our Sunday game at another player's house, and I have tried many times to convince him to stop buying Safeway brand anything, but to no avail. And admittedly, the Fremont Safeway has some decent desserts in its bakery, and its meat department is surprisingly good. But he was doing kebabs for everyone, and figured I could slap together some garlic bread for the masses. Safeway brand bread (better suited to being a flotation device than being considered "food"), Challenge butter ("flavor? It's...

I had nothing but fun in history class, probably because I live in ny and had a bunch of crazy Vietnam vets for history teachers who didn't hold anything back. At least one teacher of mine didn't think he had done his job until one kid in the class cried or leapt up and said "that's not true!"
