This ass does not need my idea of a proper serving suggestion for Samoas.

My idea of a proper serving of Samoas is zero, so maybe you could eat that many. Of course, my ideal serving of Thin Mints is all of them.

Woohoo! Nekkid (not-so) Thin Mints!!

Yes. Consume all the thin mints.

I actually grew out of liking Thin Mints. Can't really stand them anymore.

It's all Tagalongs and Samoas for me now.

Tequila, first of all, those matrix-like characters are the character representations of the binary codes, probably the 80x86 opcodes. The English messages seem to imply that the DLL is part of a Terminal Communications program. If I had the actual DLL, I can run all sorts of analysis tools and send you all kinds of data. I'll PM you my email address, so you can send me the DLL, and I'll PM you my findings, or send you emails back. Email address sent via PM.

Thin Mints have always been confectionary betrayal. Evil mint in a deceptively benign chocolate guise...

Cast iron teapot sounds like a good idea.

I can get sick of Thin Mints really quick, but I only get them a couple of times a year (technically they aren't Thin Mints, they're the Walmart version which has the twin benefits of being cheaper and available year-round).

Better that than the horrible chocolate peanut butter mess that is tagalongs.

Honestly?

YES.
Because she needs someone who understands and loves the subject to show her a bit of what is possible.
I am great at humanities and anything that involves needles, and am tolerable with hand tools and knocking things together, but my knowledge of electricity ends with how to install a ceiling fan.
And her teacher at school is a musician with an education degree. Science isn't her thing.
So, damned straight, this is a job for the strange uncles.

99.68 Fahrenheit. Slightly feverish, and generally lethargic cat. Time to flop into my basket.

I've made the plans for my PBPs already.

What is normal body temperature for a cat anyways?

Google says 101.5, so she's actually hypothermic.

And this mention of body temperatures brings me to an anomaly of my family that I think I've mentioned before. My dad, my brother, and myself all have below normal body temperatures. My "normal" is about 98.2, my brother hovers at around 98.0, and our dad clocks in at an astonishing 97.8. This has led to some interesting conversations with medical personnel who are unaware of this. Like showing up for a school physical and being told "You should really go to the ER right now because you're body temp is too low and you could DIE!"

Spoiler alert: I didn't die.

Are you sure? You could have. I'd get it looked at.

About tree fiddy.

Don't trust that one. If you give him any money he will only keep showing up asking for more.

Good thing I don't have tres leches either, then. Just these trois leeches.

You can keep the leeches. wasn't Trois some bad early 2000 horror movie?

I've got an anomalic body temp, too -- a whopping 96.8 F. No medical personnel believe me -- till they check it.

Terrible things. Hate coconut like Freehold hates Whedon.

That is a lot of hate.

Coconut deserves the hate (unlike Whedon). Even the tiniest bit destroys an entire dish.

You can't make a good curry without coconut! But if you're allergic, yes stay clear of it.

Coconut = Blecch.

But what is Laksa without coconut? Or kueh lapis?

Malay/Indian/Nonya cooking uses a lot of coconut.

I love chocolate and mint cookies myself, not that I can take them now...

EDIT: And was this Chabot? Or somewhere else? I want to make a field trip (or send Hi because I'm lazy and employed) to see the kits in question...

Gotta love Google. One of my favorites continues to be, "Choose a famous quote, translate it into a language similar to your own (e.g. German) and back again. Do it a few times."

If you choose a dissimilar language such as Chinese or Japanese you get gobbledy g@~$. But a similar language can produce some real entertainment.

Well, everyone is *supposed* to know that 98.6 is the mean, NOT an absolute, but as usual math illiteracy conquers all.

I'm surprised medical personnel would be that poorly-trained though. When I was younger I was a 96.8-er. Now I'm a 97.3-er. I'm convinced it, calorie intake, and cold resistance are related (if you don't need to keep your body as warm, you don't need as many calories, and it's easier to maintain the temperature when it's cold outside), but the limited evidence I have is scattered all over the map.

Yes, it was the Chabot. But the "kit" was just a table with little bins of parts: 1.5v DC motors, counterweights for the motors, AA batteries, wires, and then lots of random bits of rubber band, tape, and things to build out of (margarine tubs, Solo cups, etc.). And she was in heaven.

And, by the by, Lamb Vindaloo would be a great option for the 3rd.

I'm pretty much the same way, I don't know how resistant to cold I am, but I do wear shorts regularly until it drops below zero.

Thanks to the perpetual cockup that is the American rail system, my children are going to wake up in an hour and a half thinking they're going to take their father to the train station, only to find out that he already left at 3:30 this morning and they won't see him again until breakfast on Friday.
Without a hug goodbye.

Stupid Amtrak.

Oh, Gods. I'd *love* to take the train to Seattle so the kids could visit their cousins, but it's already a 24-hour ride, and it routinely runs 24 hours late.

What other public transit system can DOUBLE its travel time and not even offer you a friggin' coupon?!?!?
