As long as poutine realizes it is second banana to takoyaki, everything is good.

Not in Vermont, it isn't!

Heck, we wouldn't even allow IHOP to open a restaurant until they agreed to serve maple syrup.

All hail the Northeast Kingdom!

This is actually the first time I've had poutine.

I can't eat takoyaki. Octopus is one of my spirit animals, thus forbidden to the monkey

Don't tell Freehold... Poutine is better than takoyaki.

How was your poutine?

A lot like loaded fries in the States. More of a potato casserole in texture

Huhn,...
At first glance it (Poutine) doesn't sound that great, (I LOVED the 'curds tried to become cheese and failed' comment) :)

But, the more that I think about it, the more I think I might like it, if it was made right.

Probably not good for me! But then according to my Doctor, nothing I like to eat is good for me, so,.,.. ;P

Clearly you have been drinking. It's okay, I know you are under a lot of stress of late.

At Pomme Frites they are made with freshly cut, amazing fries. You need good fries for good poutine. If they are weak fries or if it has been sitting, it kind of mushes into a casserole.

As an aside: Anyone who wants a stirring epic to listen to as they drive along could do worse than the Silmarillion. The narrator has one of those voices that makes you think of Homer and Odysseus. And the story! Flame-hearted Faenor and his crafting of the Silmarils. Melkor/Morgoth and dread Ungoliant and their destruction of the Two Trees. The rise and fall of Numenor.

Epic

Re-reading the Silmarillion as an adult was one of those eye-opener reads - it wasn't boring and stilty after all!

Which version of the audiobook do you have? The one I have makes me space out and fall asleep.
The narrator is named Martin Shaw
The Martin Shaw!, that's brilliant he has a great voice. (And was superb in The Professionals, a must-see for any police/FBI tv-show fan)

I thought it sounded familiar! *breaks out the Inspector George Gently box-sets*

Did you ever think you'd see somebody so ridiculously happy about a gain of three degrees of motion in a stupid fingertip? ;)

P.S. Oh, also gained about 8 pounds of grip strength.

P.P.S. Why aren't we on metric yet?

Cuz Merica!!

You're showing solidarity with the Burmese!

The governor called. I have been granted a one-week reprieve.

Surgery rescheduled from the 24th to the 31st because the hospital is "having problems with the instrumentation they need for your procedure." If that doesn't give you barrels of warm fuzzy confidence, I don't know what will.

I'm good with that. We can always do a late-night munchie run after we go to the Tim Burton bar


But...takoyaki...

Also, the takoyaki place does chicken inside instead of octopus. Sorry if I didn't mention that before.


Well, this con is off to a rough start.
This is the slowest Friday at a con I have seen this year, and indeed the slowest since 2014. Barely 700 bucks in business.
Second, and perhaps worse, is that Fred perry cancelled. I went into my storage space and dug around for nothing, it seems. *sigh*
Third, my cell phone was not delivered to my mom's house like I thought it would be. I will be going over to her house stupidly early in the morning and picking up the tag so I can see where it is waiting and if it will be re-delivered or if I can just pick it up. According to what I see here, the nearest pickup point is in the middle of nowhere in queens. *SIGH*
I'm disappointed, but tomorrow is another day. Maybe I'll hit the jackpot at the casino or something.


Sorry to hear the Con is slow starting FH.

Sorry if you've mentioned this before, (but I'm an OLD wizard, and my mind isn't what it used to be!) ;P

What is it you sell at the conventions? :)

EDIT- I don't get to attend many conventions, but in my limited experience, isn't the Fri night is usually the slowest? As it takes the attendees a day or so to decide what they want to spend their money on? Or they are like me, and wait until the last possible minute to part with their cash before leaving. ;)


This is a night for some amazing animation. I just saw this episode of Star Vs. The Forces Of Evil, and this episode of Bob's Burgers.

I'd be cool with it if we were open Friday hours(4 hours or less), but we were open regular hours (12 to 8). Not good.

I sell shirts at conventions, although I used to sell all sorts of hentai and anime thingies.

We don't sell it anymore. The world has changed, and everyone just downloads their sweet sweet h from j-list or manga gamer or wherever.

I miss those days, though. Be lying if I said I didn't. There were people who remembered me and said they bought their first h from me and shook my hand and such. And the people who were so proud when they couldn't shop with us one year and then came back showed their id and said they'd like to buy one of everything. And the girls who used to tease us when we told them they couldn't shop with us year after year and then came back en masse, said they were 18 and posed for a picture with us.

Man, those were the days.

Those do sound like awesome memories.


Sorry to hear of the bad con showing FHDM.

As for takoyaki ... I had thought we were going to the poutine restaurant so that is what I informed my ladybro was the plan. She was super enthused, as she confessed a deep love for poutine. Now, I don't know if she has a similar love for takoyaki, but I'd hate to disappoint her with a change of plans.

As for NYC, I'm thinking thusly:

Sunday:
Arrive
Wander about-maybe hit museum
Hit poutine restaurant and Burton bar
Monday:
Play tourist (IDK what y'all's work schedule is like, but we'd love company)
Temple of Dog show at MSG
Tuesday: Retreat to New England

The dog badgered me into taking him out before 7 am today, and am I glad he did! The air is mountain-crisp with a spicy tang of autumn and the light is that clear, pale, rose-touched just-after-dawn glow. It's 45F, cool enough to be pleasant but not cold enough to don long pants or a sweater. This is the perfect morning. Perfect.

Did you keep him on a leash? Bad things happened one time you did...

Always keep him on the leash because he's a serious idiot.

On the bright side, since I'll be alone the week after my surgery (roomie's going out of town), a friend is taking the dog off my hands so I hadn't have to totter around walking him. A week away from Dog! Heaven!


Okay. Got a good night's sleep, a change of wardrobe, and a change in energy and perspective.

Take 2.

I forgot how much I love the Citadel DLC.


Ooh, I still need to play that. And since I failed to save for the last 2 hours in Subnautica and ended up losing my tricked-out Seamoth to one shake from a crabsquid, maybe I'll go ME3 for a change. :/
