Switch out chocolate for coffee and those are my FaWtL folks prices.

I have a good coffee machine at home.

How many cups do I owe you in trade for air fare? :P

EDIT: Naked coffee would probably not be a good idea.

*shudder* Kale....

I tried a recipe that involved honey and chili powder and a few other strong flavors in hopes of making Kale eatable. It failed.

I always wondered what this super healthy kale thing was and why people were obsessed with it.

Untill I googled it.

We've been eating this for centuries. Boiled, then mashed in with potatoes and gravy, and eaten with smoked sausage.

Presumably sorting you out with a hippogriff or pegasus means we get a better service than we'd get if you only had a riding dog or trained armadillo.

Though I do appreciate the efficiency of a hippogriff, it depends more on the quality of the chocolate, actually.

Yeah, but the police asked me to stop doing that.

there is coffee involved. Put the soft top down, do a perfect flip over the windshield, and have your classic car drive driverless across the waves while your open shirt flutters in the breeze, revealing nothing but your perfectly sculpted abs.

While colcannon is definitely the best way to consume kale (don't forget liberal quantities of butter), in all seriousness I really like lancinato/dinosaur kale lightly sauteed with lemon and garlic (liberal quantities of butter don't hurt that one either, but a MUFA-based oil can be used for those avoiding saturated fats). (But you should always eat kale with some bit of fat or you won't benefit from the carotenoids.)

I don't get the smoothie thing either. I also generally just don't get smoothies.

I do a lot of kale in smoothies. It helps keep them from being so sickly sweet, especially if I’ve added coconut milk powder to try and up the calorie count. I also drink a lot of smoothies as meal replacement since it’s the one thing I can reliably keep down. Spinach also works, but honestly it’s not as good as kale at toning down the sweetness.

For whatever reason I can't stand fruit or veggies in smoothie form.

I've only eaten kale the same way I usually eat spinach or collard greens: cook it down in skillet with olive oil, chuck in a generous amount of minced garlic, and cook it until the garlic is done but not burnt. Usually serve it alongside some form of slow-braised pork or chuck roast (both also stuffed with garlic), garlic mashed potatoes, and country gravy.

Edit: I don't have smoothies because I hate having to handwash the blender.

Well, it IS Wisconsin. Everything is probable except the luchadore mask.


I make a pasta with kale, brown mushrooms, fresh lemon, garlic, and olive oil. It's the only way I like kale. I prever regular cabbage in my colcannon, along with a mashed turnip for kick.
I've only ever had smoothies (with lots of protein powder) when I was pregnant and couldn't stand meat. Smoothies were then the least of all evils. Now they're a greater evil again.

WE ARE IN A CASTLE!!!!!!

As in, our lodgings tonight are in Tulloch Castle just outside of Inverness.

We have a suite that is bigger than our house, a bar, dinner included, a castle ghost tour, and...
...it’s less per night than our rooms in London, where Shiro could almost touch the opposite walls of his rooom.

On the other hand, the smart-a$$ rental people gave me a 9-person van, so driving Scottish roads is... interesting...

Shiro has the same wingspan as your average orangutan; that's not a fair comparison.


Random non-gaming question:

My electric company contract is due for renewal, and for $3 more per month (total, I looked at our highest kilowatt hour usage and did the math), we could switch to the "green" option, which is basically just buying REC's from Texas wind farms.

Without this getting political, does anyone have an opinion as to whether REC's are actually useful or not? I've read pros and cons from every source from MIT to Mother Jones, and it seems like, if they're guaranteeing the source is not sketchy, it comes down vaguely on the positive side... I think.

On the ghost tour IN THE CASTLE IN WHICH WE ARE STAYING:
GothBard: Any cool stories about OUR room?
Guide: Not really; your rooms are just an extension over the stables.
GB: Horse ghosts?
“Neigh”.

I can’t credit the guide, though; GothBard came up with it herself.

Only place I've used kale was trying to reproduce the zuppa tuscana soup from Olive Garden. (It turned out pretty good.) I gave it one shot using the stuff on its own as salad material and decided it just didn't have the right taste.

Back from grill...

A bit weird feeling, being the only lone person without either a partner or a kid, with some folks having already two kids. Oh, and I realistically could have been the oldest person present (not sure about three ladies present, though they didn't look 40+, which of course means little). Also, I learned got confirmation that the woman that was the (unrequited) love of my life is pregnant.

This is a feeling I know well. Everyone else my age in the few social circles I interact with at any point is married and typically has children. Everyone who doesn't have kids actively present only doesn't because they're older and their kids are grown and moved out (or are in the group of "my age but married and with kids"). The only ones that fit neither criteria are all much younger.

I'm guessing you get about as much "so when are you getting married/having kids?" inquiries as I do.

I don't actually.

My mother years ago said (as a hidden complaint) "I already lost hope of having grandchildren" but that's all. My social circle is completely composed of gamers and fantasy/SF fans. Not the kind of bunch that pesters their peers about kids, not even confirmed couples and married pairs. Some of them are having kids of their own, but a 2 + 2 family model in my circles usually means a couple with a pair of cats, instead.

I honestly don't know enough about them to give *good* advice, but from what little I've read so far it sounds a bit like playing the stock market, trying to guess when you're getting the best price for selling your REC.

And since the average home doesn't generally consume a Mwh every month, you're going to get, what, 2 RECs every 3 months?

If you can sell them at a higher price than the extra $3/month you're going to pay on your electric bill...sure, I guess...but I wouldn't want to have to pay attention to the trends in REC prices.
