I don't need your starter. Promise.

It's good bread. Not the best I've made, since I just made the starter yesterday. It needs time to mature. But it's still damned tasty.

I thought it would be harder living with subzero temps again after our brief warm up.

But this isn't so bad.

My favorite airport stories all involve Texas, of all places:

  • Dallas: The plane was late coming in, so I had to sprint across the entire airport (and it's a pretty big one) in slacks and tie, laptop in hand, to make the connecting flight. All I could think about during the entire run was OJ Simpson's famous commercials from the 1970s.
  • In Houston I forgot to put my Leatherman in my checked baggage. Security found it, and she was utterly dear about it: "Oh, sweetie! You can't take this on the plane! The checked bags for your flight are right over there. Why don't you go on over and put it in?"
    TSA with a brain! What a concept!

    ~curses up a storm~ Well, so much for buying a new video card anytime soon. Thanks a bunch, cryptocurrency miners for driving the video card prices up so much.

    I might be switching back to a PS4, because the $800 dollars of processor, RAM, and graphics card I bought in 2015 amd 2016 are running Assassin's Creed: Origins and Grand Theft Auto V at the lowest graphics setting. Individually, either a mid-range GPU or a better processor will cost well over $100 more than a new PS4 will. Computers may be capable of much better performance in theory, but this is just far too much money for me to keep up.

    So, I have the funniest "on paper" vs. "in reality" moment so far this year:

    Much to my amazement, Global Megacorporation approved a raise for me this year. Their typical attitude is, "Want more money? Go get a job somewhere else, make them pay you what they think you're worth, and we'll hire you back in a year or two. Or just acquire them."
    On paper, my raise was pretty darned decent: $150 per paycheck. No small potatoes.

    I just got my first paycheck of the new year. After increased taxes, deductions, and whatnot, my raise was reduced to... $7 per paycheck.

    Thanks, U.S. government!

    Woo hoo! I can buy an extra Slurpee once every two weeks!

    You could buy two pounds of some sweet Colby cheese for that.

    Or 3 gallons of hormone free milk with 20 cents left over.

    Yeah, it turns out when your cows are actually happy and not CGI caricatures they produce a lot more milk.

    Playtesting a new paladin strategy for viability, before I drop 1600 dust on the Kaleidosaur quest-card.

    So far, casual playtests have been promising. But I haven't playtested on the ladder, and the ladder has been brutal lately. (It used to be the opposite.)

    How NobodysHome Cooks:

    (1) Find a recipe for eggnog. Read through the instructions. Cut corners to make it as easy as possible. Result = Foamy sweetened scrambled eggs.

    (2) Perform a post-mortem analysis on the result to determine what went wrong.

    (3) Meticulously repeat the recipe, this time doing the failing steps as correctly as possible. (Yes, I was sitting there with a double boiler and a thermometer, waiting for it to hit exactly 180 degrees while stirring madly).

    (4) Repeat until result is edible or the recipe is deemed useless.

    Alternative: you ask Whingey Wizzard to make it using his grandaddy's recipe, which is sublime. You serve it to your guests. You don't drink it yourself.

    How NobodysHome Kjeldorn Cooks:

    (1) Find half a recipe for eggnog pot-roast at the bottom of the freezer of indeterminate age. Read through the instructions Try and determine eatability, by thawing said meat, poking it to determine consistency, and watching for any alarming signs (ie smell and so on). Cut corners to make it as easy as possible Shrugs, and since I'm just cooking for myself and I've already been f&&~ing sick for a week now, what's the worst that could happen?. Browns diced roast-meat in a pot, over low heat for about an hour. Adds meat to a Bell-pepper, garlic, chili, lemongrass, baby potato stir-fry. Throws in 3 different kinds of curry, adds a pinch of salt, a bit of honey and a splash of port-wine and orange juice. Cooks a bit of rice, adds to the stir-fry and turn off the heat to let it cool/simmer/ripen for 10-15 min. Result = Foamy sweetened scrambled eggs Stir-fry pot-roast with a bit of vegies and rice.

    (2) Waiting to perform a post-mortem analysis on the result (probaby won't be in before my first visit to the porcelain alter) to determine what went wrong/right.

    (3) Meticulously forget almost everything about the whole process from the proportion of the spices added to which vegies were used. It makes cooking so much more fun!. repeat the recipe, this time doing the failing steps as correctly as possible. (Yes, I was sitting there with a double boiler and a thermometer, waiting for it to hit exactly 180 degrees while stirring madly).

    (4) "Repeats" until result is edible or the recipe is deemed useless result wreaks a terrible vengeance on my bowls.

    How to make eggnog in three easy steps!

    1. Take your eggs

    2. Take your milk

    3. Make anything other than eggnog.

    This morning I got on the trendy asshat bandwagon and made myself one of those "golden milk" lattes with ginger and turmeric.
    It was a horrible thing to do to an innocent cup of coffee, and I feel so ashamed.

    Is golden milk some sort of supa dupa Californian Next Stage Of Humanity's Evolution Towards Godhood thing?

    As it involves turmeric, I suspect so. Turmeric is quite tasty, of course, as is ginger, but magic powers they don't have.

    Golden milk lattes? turmeric? coffee? This has to be a jest!

    Trendy asshats indeed!.

    Although...
    *Looks a his chamomile tea, then at his spice-rack and a light bulb appears over his head*
    There might be potential to separate some cash from their alternative trendy asshat owners!

    I've had a lot of people recommend the turmeric/ginger thing for arthritis pain and inflammation. I hurt this morning, so I tried it. It tasted like the devil's arse, and I still hurt. Won't be trying it again.

    Rub some ibuprofen gel on the achy bits and have a glass of Scotch. That'll relieve any discomfort and actually taste nice 'n' all.

    Providing you don't get things the other way around, of course.

    I love when scotch drinkers and bourbon drinkers get into knock down, drag out arguments. Personally, I'll drink either, as well as Irish whiskey, because I'm not too hung up about this stuff.

    That's the problem with big groups: They're too unwieldy for good roleplaying with the NPCs, so unless they interact with each other there's virtually no roleplay at all (that's our table), combats take forever, and everyone sits there thinking that it's a mediocre, tolerable game.

    But no one's willing to leave.

    So we have enough people to have two really fun groups. Instead we have one overcrowded group. Feh.

    Yeah, I'm going to run into this if they bring in other possible kid. There are 6 in the Rainbow, potentially 7. Granted, it usually 3-4 because some are very hit and miss about showing up.

    I'm streamlining things with fiat leveling rather than XP and removing some encounters here and there, but it is a worry. I don't think I could send potential babyGM off on her own with them yet, so we remain a large group and see how things go.

    isn't remaining clothed while gaming a good idea?

    does anyone know for play by post? If you could tell that would be more creepy. Or you were sitting right next to someone in the play by post.
