Strangest thing that happened to me last time I Was in Kuwait was finding the best burger I have had in a very long time in a Ruby Tuesday...in Kuwait.

And yes I am a little ashamed that I ate in a Ruby Tuesday while abroad but sometimes you just want a burger

Actually I suppose I am a little embarrassed I ate at a Ruby Tuesday period.


on the plus side, bread. What Americans call "bread" is usually disgusting, or at best kind of mediocre and sad. German bread is awesome.

anything made with sugar uses real sugar instead of nasty sickly-sweet corn syrup like everything in the US. (Ever wonder why European chocolates taste oh, so much better? that's why.)

yeah, the beer really is all that. almost a shame that I'm not a big beer drinker, because it's really good.

We live in a town of 1200 people. It has a bakery, two butchers, a local beer, and a local sausage. gives you an idea of what the priorities are.

Also if Bref survives this and you all get squished, he WILL be saving your jelly in many jars and eating you daily. So your death's will not be in vain!

What the Germans do well, they do really well!
I soooo want to go there for Octoberfest...I enjoy good beer so this would be a real treat for me.

Years ago in Bali I had an inexplicable craving to enter a McDonalds and order a Diet Coke and a large fries. Reprehensible at any time, but in *Bali*? I'm still wondering what was up with that.

They were being led by an Austrian at that point.

I remember going to bakeries before school and getting fresh Brotchen. 25 years later I can still smell and taste it. Germans don't have as many pastries, although that have plenty, because the bread is so good and varied that you do not need the sugary pastries.

(You can get a lot of good food in German towns -- there's always a Greek or Italian place, and in the bigger cities you can get Chinese, Arab, Thai and Indian. But Mexican? just don't.)

In New York you can find all the above, add Korean, Japanese and Brazilian on one single street.

But the Mexican food in New York does not hold a candle to the San Diego version.

Surprisingly in Atlanta we have very good Mexican food. It's not authentic...but that possibly makes it better :]

I like that some of our ooc thread revolves around food, something near and dear to my heart.

lol

Since we are on the subject of food.


Well, New York. You can get /anything/ in New York.

-- My wife's paternal grandfather -- my father-in-law's father -- was an artillery officer in the Wehrmacht; he participated in the invasions of Poland, France, and Greece. When I first visited their house, I noticed all the nice family pictures on top of the piano... including one of the guy in the Wehrmacht uniform. Blinked a moment, yes.

And you have studied his combat strategy well enough to inflict it on your players I see.

;)


We-ell, I never met him myself -- he died a few years before I met my wife-to-be -- but apparently he didn´t like to talk about the war much. Being one of only seven guys out of his company of 300 to come home in 1946 may have had something to do with that.

I'm on my friend James's computer 'copying' (ahem) his notes for school and saw a page bookmarked, since it's Valentines and I did not get you boys anything consider this a post Valentine tribute.


Oddly enough, my wife spent about two hours last night watching a very technical post on different sorts of lingerie in boudoir photography. (Did I watch over her shoulder? Well, you know I'm very interested in F-stops. Yes.)

Protips: don't wear a push-up bra, they dramatically limit your possible poses. Don't even think about a baby doll, it's hard as hell to photograph and will probably make you look fat. Corsets work for almost everyone, especially if you're curvy. Bustiers work for almost everyone, especially if you're not that curvy. Tube tops and bandos, forget it -- they may look sexy at the beach, but they're really hard to photograph well. Teddys look good and are flexible, but can have a lot of complicated strings that can come loose during a shoot as you're moving around. Garter belts can look great but are a PITA, so don't be afraid to ask for help with them. (Me: "I knew that!" Wife: turns and gives me A Look. Me: "I mean, heard that. I heard that.") If nothing else is working, have a couple of cheap t-shirts you can cut up with scissors -- it's an old trick but a good one. And American Apparel is evil but, dammit, they make a lot of things that photograph well.

It was, technically speaking, fascinating.


I mean, F-stops.

-- Wife is now watching the section on posing. It is, I kid you not, about the least erotic thing imaginable.

"Okay, breathe in a little... now pop your hip... no, other hip... uh huh [click]... now raise your arm... little higher... no, now your hair is falling over your shoulder, move it back... uh huh... breathe out, now, and breathe in again... pop the hip back... okay [click] now move your left foot forward a couple of inches..."

It's basically watching an attractive woman in lingerie shift very slowly from one uncomfortable-looking position to another. You know that thing about how, if you want to enjoy sausage, you should never ever see how sausage is made? It's getting a bit like that.


In other news, Friday night was (as usual) movie night -- pizza and a movie for the kids. This week it was "Rio", the animated movie, which included this appropriately villainous little number:

le yuck i believe you would say

Well the English call girls birds.

I'll read the forum when I get back, heading to work soon, oh can we read Edmin's spoiler?

I feel like I miss out on half the cool stuff under those spoilers!

Its a shame because they could be big part of the story.

you poor players have to read cymu and my BS. Probably all excited for some real action only to find my garbage.

Cymu, I read the first few posts and went ewww, then thought of le yuck then laughed.

He does not have the gravitas of a Bref. Maybe your halfling illusion could look like him.

I have no objection. It´s part of Edmin´s backstory, so your character wouldn´t know it, but OTOH it´s not immediately relevant to gameplay.

-- Does this mean Edmin´s not going to die? Alas, no. After many yeras as a DM, I´ve grown inured to giving characters backstory and then seeing them promptly get hacked to pieces, burned, blown up, impaled or, as in this case, squashed flat. The alternative is to not give backstory at all, and that´s boring. I like backstory, and I hope you do too! but having backstory doesn´t make you safer... just more interesting.

Female Aasimar Wizard 6 (HP 53/53; AC 18/18/15; CMD 16 Fort +5; Ref +7 Will +8; Init +3; Perception +11; Darkvision 60 ft)

That was the catch phrase.

For the title I would have gone with -

'A Tale of Two $hities' (a play on a Tale of Two Cities')

or if a cooking show

'Hag the Gob' (play on Hug the Cook)

or

'Bref and the Witch' (a play on Beauty and the Beast)

or if a crime drama

'Law & Order - Don't Eat the Evidence!'

...that said, I may wait a round or two before doing the next piece. I'd feel a bit silly if I wrote another installment and he immediately got flattened.
