Grit pie? I'm curious. *licks Grit pie off Freehold just to see how it tastes like*

I only do that when my electric razor fails me.


PRO-TIP: If your nose is stopped up, plucking your nasal hair will clear that right up.


I hand pluck, it's cheaper and more rewarding.

(Chiligeddon is assembled in the crock pot and burbling away...)

I already knew that dried California (Anaheim) and pasilla chili peppers, while quite mild, still have some capsaicin in them.

I already knew that the majority of the heat is concentrated in the inner membrane/veins and the seeds, which I removed with my bare fingers (and a knife, of course).

I already knew that some of these oils would seep into my fingers' skin... which is fine, no cuts or scratches so no pain.

I knew that the oil would still be present, even after a vigorous and thorough hand scrubbing.

But... knowing all that, I was still surprised by the pain when I used those fingers to take out my contact lenses. So, there, that's slightly embarrassing.

The only use I have found for grits is that it is an effective culinary vehicle for the simultaneous delivery of bacon, shrimp, and butter.

You haven't known true fun until you cut up some raw habaneros and then use the restroom.

I have on more than one occasion applied tiger balm and then went to the bathroom afterward.


Did the same with Ben gay back in the day.

That was the last time I helped grandma with her Ben gay.


well, in a similar vein, the other day I was working on a doll and dipped my fingers in 100% acetone to wet a cotton bud just after the bleeding had stopped after I cut my finger open while taking off mold lines.

It was a little bit unpleasant.

Yikes.

My dad had very bad knees and they hurt him constantly. He would use a full strength horse liniment on them to loosen up the joints and surrounding muscles. Just a drop of that on skin burned like crazy. How he managed to stand the sensation both baffled me and caused me to give him mad respect as a kid.

I once....took a little plummet into an open construction pit while dressed as Viscous from Cowboy Bebop. It was an All Hollow's Eve back in college, and going to the bars and parties was fine, no big open hole. But alas, must have been an urgent issue, cause walking home what should appear bellow me but open space where once sidewalk had been. I of course had more than my fair share of celebratory beverages so...

Let me tell you, it is hard to look like a bad ass space gangster while trying to get out of a slippery muddy hole.

I once got someone to buy me and my friend a bunch of Zima, we slammed it all in a parked train car by the park. My friend ended up waking up in my bed and I woke up fifty miles away in Freeport, Ill in a house full (like three generations) of deaf people, none of whom I knew.

Turns out one of my friends was the only person in his family with hearing and I made him take me to Freeport to find chicks (which was a rousing success!).


Awesome.

I was walking around my office and was passing by my colleagues when I made an extremely noisy f@rt.

I immediately told them, "You didn't hear anything."

I once took two hits of LSD, "I'm not feeling it, give me another" is something you shouldn't say twenty minutes after taking one hit of acid. At any rate, because it was two days before Easter I spent the rest of the night looking for Easter egg trees and Easter bunnies. I didn't find either, despite walking past a pine tree covered in Easter eggs at least fifty times.

And then the next morning I went to my older brother's sham green card marriage still tripping (he married the daughter of a super rich Chinese national, they paid for his college).

A good technique is to look surprised and then glare pointedly at the person opposite as if it was their fault.

I've twice now in the last week tried to drag my finger down the page of a book, expecting it to scroll, like my phone.

F%#$ you modern world!

The only time I ever took acid was because someone secretly spiked a bottle of whiskey with it. My trip involved talking with my D&D character, an Anti-Paladin.

I once ate mushrooms and then spent the next hour with my girlfriend riding a glass elevator up and down.

I once got so drunk on Goldschlager I woke up the next morning with both Ace of Base and Lynch Mob CDs.


That's pretty embarrassing.

I once spent $50 on gas station cappuccino in one night while on mushrooms because we'd walk to the gas station, get a cappuccino, walk home, forget about it and repeat as necessary until dawn breaks and someone suggests getting coffee and pancakes at Country Kitchen.

I think I would have loved a trip like that too.

One time some friends didn't get enough shrooms for me and my friend's girlfriend because we got off work late, so we convinced them they were in Vietnam (keep in mind, this was 1994).

All night they wandered down train tracks and crawled through underbrush shouting "Charlie!?! Charlie!! Charlie!!!"

I always assumed Nights in White Satin was spelled with a silent K which might have affected my perception of the song.

And led to disappointment when I learned my paladin couldn't wear satin armor.

But I still didn't realize I had the spelling wrong.

In fact I just found out I had it wrong this last week.

I'm significantly older than you, and I just found out I had it wrong this morning!!

And you didn't even tell us.

It's a secret I've kept since 1972.

No, you weren't the only one who knew. That secret has been kept by the Ministry of Information for decades.

Secret?! There’s no point in acting surprised about it. All the chord charts and lyrics have been on display at your local planning department in Alpha Centauri for 50 of your Earth years, so you’ve had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaint and it’s far too late to start making a fuss about it now.

Chili results:
Chili went better than expected, although a single dried California (Anaheim) and a single dried pasilla chili pepper, both de-seeded and de-membraned/de-veined, in a pot of chili is still too spicy for Dad. Otherwise, it was a noticeable improvement over Mom's chili-seasoning-packet-from-supermarket recipe.

I am slightly embarrassed that the last three times I've made pork chops for Mom & Dad they came out too dry. The very last time I braised the pork chops and they still came out too dry (which was impressive and embarrassing). Mom is apparently leaving out a step or doing something different than I have uncovered/decoded, so tonight's chops* are strictly following Kenji's dry-brined and reverse-seared method.

* Served with garlic mashed 'taters & sawmill gravy, Hawaiian biscuits, green beans, and green peas.

I was JUST about to ask how chili went when you posted this.

I can make chili. I can grill steaks. I can make a fantastic bbq pulled pork. I do a very good sauteed onion/peppers/mushrooms/kielbasa dish.

In 44 years of life I have never successfully made a grilled cheese sandwich.

I have had this argument... with myself... in my own head... more than once.

*sees something related to four year old daughter's love of unicorns*

"That's not a unicorn! It has wings!"

"Then what is it?"

"It's not a pegasus, either, because it has a horn!"

"Then what is it?"

"It's nothing! It's not a real creature!"

"...Neither are unicorns and pegasi. Who are you to deny someone the chance to dream up their own magical horse?"

wikipedia, winged unicorn wrote:
This creature has no specific name, but in some literature and media, it has been referred to as an alicorn, a Latin word for the horn of a unicorn, especially in alchemical texts, or as a pegacorn, a portmanteau of a pegasus and unicorn.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

It's an alicorn. Of which Luna is the best specimen. Duh.
