Pretty much. I have transmute flour to pizza spell! The material components are Flour, Milk, Mozarella cheese, Ham, Yeast, Tomato puree, cubed tomatoes, a little butter, onions and garlic. Focus components are an oven, two large bowls, one small bowl, one large baking tray. Casting time is about 3 hours.

Oh I also have the *Clothes apparition* spell

*Looks at nekkid self, then gets dressed*

Thrusty rather than cutty.

Proper hand protection.

Not held with both hands.

Different aesthetic, too.

Hmm there seems to be a large prevalence of martial art practitioners in the US. I wonder why.

My reasons were similar to Vanykrye's: Picked on throughout middle and high school, so took it up as self-defense, then got humiliated in my first tournament so kicked it into high gear. By the time we got to my 5-year high school reunion I was confident I could trounce any of my former bullies.

Except they'd all turned into fat, lazy, alcoholic, unemployed losers.

I didn't need any revenge. They were just universally sad human beings.

First off belated happy b-day Synos!

Secondly, yesterday was my birthday too…
Though all I did to celebrate was cook myself a large steak w. baked potatoes. Afterward I had myself a large glass of Rum (a El Dorado 21Y).

It's always amazing to me just how much culture and practices vary even within a fairly strictly-defined community: Caucasian kids raised in Albany.

So I was always taught that when you went to a friend's house and his or her parents offered you dinner, you:
- Politely ate the first serving, whether or not it was nasty
- Politely asked for seconds if you wanted them
- Stopped there so as not to be considered a greedy pig

Admittedly, this might have been born of my Depression-era parents buying only a set amount of food, thus ensuring that if you ate your fill, someone else would go hungry.

So last night we had a guest (who shall remain nameless), and I made spaghetti and meatballs for the three of them (the two Impii and the guest), including a pound and a half of ground beef, a pound of dried spaghetti, and 3 cups of sauce. The kids each had their first servings. Then our guest, without asking, went back for seconds. Then thirds. Then fourths. Until the meal that typically gives us leftovers for 2-3 nights was entirely devoured.

On the one hand, I'm sure his family raised him differently: He has 4 or 5 older brothers and I'm sure it was much more of a feeding frenzy at his place. And it's nice not to have to deal with leftovers.

But for me, it's odd to be at a friend's house and to be helping yourself to fourths, finishing off all the food, without so much as a "by your leave" or "did anyone else want any"?

Different families, different cultures...

(I'm trying to be clear that I'm not angry about it, just kind of surprised and perplexed, because I was always taught that eating all the food at someone else's house was rude, so it's interesting to see someone for whom that was definitely not the case.)

I never learned martial arts.

I also wasn't picked on in high school.

But I also moved to a new town 4 hours to the south right before high school and already had long hair.

So yeah, I rather enjoyed high school, even if I didn't learn a damn thing. :-)


Vomited last night, possibly due to moldy dates. Do dates grow mold?

The problem with anosmia is you can't smell bad food, and often can't taste it either.

Admittedly this never came up for me growing up, as my brother and I were scrawny as kids and tiny compared to our respective best friends. So when we'd visit their homes, their families had cooked with far-larger kids in mind, and thus we were always encouraged to take more and regularly asked "are you sure you've had enough?" a time or two before the meal was finished.

That said, manners as taught by our parents didn't touch on the subject much but asking for further helpings seems to have been something taught or strongly implied along the way. I don't remember ever specifically being told the etiquette of visiting dining, but I would be inclined to agree with your upbringing's definition of food-related rudeness.

No idea…

Thought if I was to pull answer out of my ass, I'd say yes. I think molds are either fungi or microbes (unicellular "things"), that draw sustenance from other carbon-based matter, so they should theoretically be able to "grow" on all kind of plant, fungus and animal life.

That said…

Ditto. I don't recall being taught this but it is something I'll do with some exceptions (with some friends we reached the point where going to kitchen and making oneself tea without asking is the norm, though unspoken expectation is to ask others if they want tea too).

On the other hand whenever my parents heard I was sitting with friends I was usually asked if I was offered any food.

I would probably not have gone back for 3rds. Maybe sexonds, as this is your cooking we are talking about. If it was gothbard's cooking, I would have brought some guys with me, as war would erupt over who got the last bite.

More seriously, different cultures are different.

I didn't read the novels, but they still seemed like a cool idea.

You see once the Yuuzhan Vong came into the picture it all ended up as an intergalatical war where good people died. And the horrors of war irreparably corrupted good people(think PTSD), and lead to some rather nasty stuff in legacy of the force series.

Which really made the whole thing too dark for my taste. So anything without Yuuzhan Vong is a good thing!

Sorry, Mort, but Anakin, Jacen, and Jaina are the children of Han and Leia. Because their last names are Solo, and not Skywalker.

LOL. That question simply means you don't own a home.

Yeah, grass'll rip through half an inch of sand as if it weren't there. Or half an inch of concrete for that matter.

Grass is nasty stuff. Give it water and it'll rip through anything to get to daylight.

Except, apparently, black plastic garbage bags. Which is what all idiot homeowners did around here around 20 years ago to kill off all greenery, so we get to deal with blowing about bits of decayed black plastic everywhere.

Today: We finally have our image, so I'm testing our latest release, and yep, after five years of existence, NONE OF THE MENUS OR LISTS IN OUR PRODUCT ARE ALPHABETIZED.

Let me tell you just how FUN it is to scroll through a list of 150+ non-alphabetized entries to find the correct one, when every new set of 25 requires a few seconds to load...
