  1. FRITS!

  2. Twooth!

    *pulls cinnamon rolls from oven; makes extra large batch of melty icing*

  3. *gives Lauraw my poptart piece, and goes for cinnamon roll.

  4. Excellent poat, Jew.

  5. *double dips in melty icing.

  6. What is the third pic?

  7. It’s a person sealed under a sheet of latex. It’s called a vacbed. Apparently people do that for fun.

    *Looks shifty, shuffles feet.

  8. Jewstin – can you tell me how you added your photos to the post?

    I’m working to stop the spamming of the photos that get linked (ever since my POL pic got spammed). When I have created posts lately, it defaults to “none” for any URL links. But I notice that your post and several others do have links to them.

  9. *subtly moves measuring cup of icing away from Carin*

  10. I save the images to my local disk and then upload them in the dashboard. I believe when wordpress uploads them it assigns a permalink to the photos unless you tell it not to.

  11. Thanks. I’m going to give that a test.

  12. Hunh. That did not put a “Link URL” filename to the photo when I pulled one off my computer.

    Did you use the “Add Media” button to add your photos?

  13. Yep. Upload media, then add to post.

  14. That’s how I normally add the MMM imagery.

  15. I have sweatpants, socks, a t-shirt, a robe, and a knit cap on because my fever is making everything feel cold, and I’m drinking iced tea because I’m sweating to death.

  16. *scratches head*

    Okay. Hmmm…

    I know we don’t get a huge amount of spam, but seeing my POL photo in the spam bucket was rather unsettling. I’ve been going into every post that gets hit with this photo spam and deleting the Link URL from each photo. I have also been going into every new post and deleting the Link in those photos too.

    I may have to take the Nuculear Solutions™ route to solve this…

  17. Feel better soon, Leon.

  18. I better not get the Leon Flu.

  19. Leon, a visit to the doc, maybe? Looks like a viral infection, but you never know. It could be the willies or the jitters. Or worse, heebie-jeebies.

  20. Like I said, I don’t think it’s a flu. No digestive symptoms at all — other than having no appetite.

    I will stop whining now.

  21. Right now the post holiday super flu is brewing. When it is in full swing college kids go back to school spreading it far and wide.

    We have a week, maybe two.

    *sanitizes hands*

  22. Sounds like herpes. Have you checked your prostate?

  23. I’ve been sitting here the whole time with a finger up my butt (I find it comforting). Everything feels normal.

    I thought the first symptom of herpes was dating a woman far too young for you, and I haven’t done that. I’d remember.

  24. Just roll around in a bit of dirt and you’ll live. Probably.

  25. Did you jiggle the handle?

  26. I’ve been trying really hard to give up handle jiggling.

  27. SEED CATALOG .

    SEEED CATTAAAALLLOOOOGGGGG.

  28. Carin, did you plant your bulbs last fall? You’ll miss the hyacinths.

  29. There can be only one! (cornerstone of the internet):

    http://tinyurl.com/a288xbs

  30. I didn’t do bulbs this year. I only started working in Oct, so money was too tight for even a few bulbs.

    But I’ll be ordering seeds.

    Oh yes.

    I’ll be ordering some seeds.

  31. Two pounds of beef becoming jerky.

  32. Peonies.I love peonies.

    aaah…

    and I could use some more zebra grass.

    *calculates order

    Imma gonna have to cross out a few things.

  33. Peonies are lovely. Raid one of your kids’ piggy bank.

  34. How long is the shelf life on seeds?

  35. I already have a couple varieties of Peonies.

    But one NEVER has enough.

  36. I mean, HELLO?!!.

    I need that, right?

  37. I dunno Pupster. If they’re selling, it must be time though.

    I can start seeding in Feb.

    *vibrates

  38. Mare!

  39. Seeds kept in a cold dry environment will last almost indefinitely. I’ve planted wildflower seeds that were decades old and many of them sprouted.

  40. The kids are on Christmas vacation. They are under the impression that the sordid episode called school is finally a closed chapter in their lives and they are finally free to live their lives to the fullest. Jan 2nd is going to be a rude shock.

  41. Vmax just planted some ancient mustard seed from his spice rack, iirc.

  42. Get well soon Leon. It’s probably some gluten you ate. Glad I got an antivirus thingy on the computer though. Hopefully it will keep me flu free.

  43. HA! That baby is owned!

  44. Car in, this is a good seed/bulb place. They have a tree catalog too. Their catalogs have some lefty wackjob rants but … so what.

  45. There were tomato seeds flown on the LDEF spacecraft for almost 6 years. They had about the same sprout rate as the control seeds stored on the ground. 2/3rds.

  46. Were the space tomatoes grown in zero gravity or returned to earth? I wonder what shape they’d have if grown in zero gravity.

  47. G’mopnringl

  48. XBrad is having a stroke. Should someone do something?

    How do I add a poll?

  49. Silly Leon, can’t tell the signs of a stroke from “not even finished with the first cup of coffee.”

  50. Time lost is brain lost

  51. Jimbro, returned to Earth. Plants in zero gravity grow towards the light source, but the root system looks bizarre.

  52. I just made myself breakfast, and couldn’t finish it. I couldn’t finish the bacon. I must be really sick.

    *calls 911*

  53. Did you know that not being able to finish your bacon is not considered a life-threatening condition? The gal on the phone almost seemed to be laughing at me.

    How unprofessional.

  54. **fixes chicken soup for Leon**

  55. Good morning, people who can’t wait for this fucking year to be over already.

  56. Thanks Roamy. I’m kicking myself for not having some bouillon or chicken stock handy.

  57. My girlfriend called and left a message to tell me that she and her BF are totally addicted to my home-cured bacon. I gave a little chunk to her a while back on a visit.

    She wants to purchase pig with me.

    The Wisers are coming for supper this afternoon, we’ll share the rest of our with them and get some more confirmation of the HUGE CAN OF AWESOME I OPENED ON THAT PORK BELLY.

    *struts around, completely bloated with bacon pride*

  58. Time to start another small bidness, Laura.

  59. My girlfriend called and left a message to tell me that she and her BF are totally addicted to my home-cured bacon. I gave a little chunk to her a while back on a visit.

    You do realize that you’re basically a drug dealer now, right?

    “Here you go, baby. The first one is free…”

  60. **kicks Leon for not having bullion or chicken stock handy**

    Take a break, brother. I’ve got this!

  61. XBrad is a team player. I’m also wishing I’d made my salty ballz when I was feeling better. I’m pretty sure running the food processor will make my head pound loud enough to wake my deaf dog.

  62. My neighbor made stroganoff last night with homemade noodles and venison.

    YUM.

  63. BIL gave me some frozen venison. Haven’t decided what to make out of it yet. The Bambi burger will become chili but not today unless I go to the grocery store.

  64. Shit, it’s still 2012??

  65. STILL!

  66. I had a bad attitude in 2012. I’m going to be more positive in 2013.

    And give up blow.

  67. Fuuuuuuuu…………

    *rescues calendar from trashcan*

  68. I had enough surgery to last me all the way through 2013.

    NO MORE GODDANGIT

  69. Car in, this is a good seed/bulb place. They have a tree catalog too. Their catalogs have some lefty wackjob rants but … so what.

    COOL. fanks.

  70. Okay meat cookers, I need a recommendation for a meat thermometer. Did you guys spring for the one on the Amazing Ribs site? or go for a cheaper one? I’m eating so much meat lately, it’s time to really learn how to cook it.

  71. On a plus note, I will say my eye experience was valuable, because when I was discussing the symptoms with my brother in law over Thanksgiving, he said “really? I’ve seen some of that too” so we encouraged him to get it checked out. As it happens, he had a partially separated retina too, it came on fast like mine.

    So a smart eye surgeon saved his sight. We compared notes about the recovery, the patch, the grody looking eye, the gas bubble and all.

    I’m glad my experience helped someone I care about (he’s a good BIL)

  72. NY Giants need to beat the Eagles AND losses by the Bears, Vikings and Cowboys to make the playoffs…not likely to happen

  73. I’m going to be more positive in 2013.

  74. HAH! beasn!

    *pecks you on the cheek and blushes*

  75. Laura, that was not far from me, almost two weeks ago. I can still hear the media crickets, even here.

  76. I wonder what Rosetta’s been up to lately.

    http://tinyurl.com/bhbfzk7

    Oh.

    Forget I asked…

  77. i renewed my CHL last week.

  78. My plan for 2013 is to donate $20 to the Senate Conservatives Fund and then commit suicide if Michigan loses the Outback Bowl. It’s probably going to be a short year for me.

    Anybody want a really good dog?

    Don’t talk like that, your puppeh needs you.

  81. that right there is a happy baby.

    Michael, if you were going to commit sewercide every time Michigan lost you’d be daid already.

    *pants you*


  82. http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/article/Two-wounded-in-theater-shooting-4122668.php

    Time to have a national conversation about theater and movie-watching permits. Clearly the movie business is profiting from mass shootings and death.

  83. Mmmmm…chicken and rice soup on a cool day.

    While everyone else plays Skyrim.

  84. Michael, if you were going to commit sewercide every time Michigan lost you’d be daid already.

    But THIS time I really really mean it. Can you imagine losing to a bunch of pig-humpers from South Carolina? I could not live with that.

    *buys new Exacto knife to slit wrists*

  85. This asshole woman killed an innocent Indian man because she could not be bothered to find the difference between Hindus and Muslims, did not know who caused 9/11 and assumed all brown people are terrorists. I am sure the wimps in NY have rejected death punishment long ago.

  86. You do realize that you’re basically a drug dealer now, right?
    “Here you go, baby. The first one is free…”

    Everyone knows pig is a gateway drug leading to the evils of beef, and ultimately the worst of all, veal.

  87. At least she’s not hustling gluten.

  88. Michael, here is an idea: forget Football and watch cricket. You won’t be emotionally invested and won’t get suicidal.

  89. “I had a bad attitude in 2012. I’m going to be more positive in 2013.
    And give up blow.”

    I’m not sure I approve of you giving up any of that! Wait, were you talking about cocaine?

  90. I used to mainline enriched white flour. That’s when I knew I hit rock bottom. I sold my granny’s wedding ring to score a loaf of Wonder Bread.

  91. Does anyone here have a newer model Honda CR-V? Please, what are your thoughts on this car.

  92. It’s when you start pushing old ladies over cliffs to get at their Twinkies Little Debbie’s is when you know you got it bad.

  93. Tushar, I actually tried to watch a cricket game on TV. Once. I think I was in Australia. It was like watching mold grow in your refrigerator.

  94. Mare tempted by the drug of gluten:

  95. Chick car.

  96. Try curling instead, Michael.

    *sings “Oh, Canada!”*

  97. Why a “chick car?” Because it’s relatively small?

  98. Mare, CR-V is a great vehicle. I would recommend it in a heartbeat, but there is vehicle I would recommend more: toyota RAV-4.
    Three reasons for that:
    1. Toyota makes cars that are slightly more reliable and longer lasting than Hondas.
    2. The new RAV-4 looks awesome.
    3. I own a few Toyota shares.

  99. My MiL has the Hyundai version of that, Mare, and hates it.

  100. I love french bread, George, do you have any brie to go with that?

    *doesn’t really care if you have brie, fatties eat bread with or without cheese

  101. It was like watching mold grow in your refrigerator.

    I think that’s a show on NBC. Or maybe they all merely seem that way.

  102. Cyn should I compare a Hyundai owners view to a Honda?

    Seriously, I don’t know how similar, reliable, whatever.

  103. *going online to check out the new RAV-4’s

  104. Buy this instead: http://

  105. I love french bread, George, do you have any brie to go with that?

    Only yellow gubmint cheese. It’s all we can afford falling off Teh Fiscal Cliff.

  106. >> Wait, were you talking about cocaine?

    I love it that you asked that question. I’ve owned three Hondas dating back to 81. All reliable.

  107. Time to see what the demon Netflix can find for me on a crappy, cold, sick Sunday afternoon…

    Huh, The Immortalizer, released in 1989, starring no one you’ve ever heard of. Plot synopsis: a neurologist has perfected brain transplants, and uses he procedure to allow the wealthy and old to be reborn in the bodies of the (kidnapped) young and nubile.

    This has some classic themes appropriate to the genre in the period, including powerful wealthy effectively consuming the very vitality of the young so as to maintain their static existence at the peak of the social hierarchy. Amusingly, what was an element of B-movie horror in that time is now de facto government policy.

    Should be a fun watch.

  108. Curling is actually slightly interesting, just because of the physics involved. Shuffle board leagues in a bar can also be pretty entertaining — those people get serious about it and the tactics are complex.

  109. Probably no, Mare; I shared just if you were going to be perusing the class/category of vehicle.

  110. Cyn, what the hell is a Hyundai version of a Honda CRV?

  111. Cyn, thanks again for my gift. They are comfy as all get out :D

  112. Santa Fe

  113. Yay Aggie!

  114. Tushar – i see that woman’s name is Menendez… i wonder if she’s related to erik & lyle

  115. >> Cyn, thanks again for my gift. They are comfy as all get out

    hello

  116. Hey now, I like watching curling.

  117. Okay, but that’s good, the Santa Fe which was actually an option, is now off the list.

  118. A bunch of Canadians got together and asked “can we invent a gayer sport on ice than hockey?”

    And they did.

  119. HA! When I go to forums talking about the Honda vs the Toyota it’s like the ever present “which gun is best” feuds.

  120. Hey now, I like watching curling.

    http://tinyurl.com/bks6r9u

  121. Oh, you mean a similar vehicle to CRV.
    I have been using a RAV-4 for a couple of years and I love it as a daily commuter and for trips under 2-300 miles. It is not comfortable enough for journeys longer than that.
    What car you buy depends on usage pattern. Regular commute? Long road trips? Frequrntly hauling a lot of stuff? Frequently hauling oddly shaped and large items? Need towing capacity? Care about fuel efficiency and cost? Need to haul dead bodies? 6 ft+ people in family?

  122. You guys should see my pantry right now.

    It’s beautiful.

    Only took 4 hours.

    I did take a lunch break.

  123. Edmunds.com used to be a great place for car info.

  124. *shuns Dave*

    *again*

  125. You might consider this modified Suzuki Samurai.

  126. Pepe, they are all good. I am using a Polder now but I don’t think the brand matters much.

    I would be sure to get one of the dual thermometers that also reads the temp at the cooking surface. Grill thermometers can be off by a lot. My Weber is spot on in the summer but in the winter it can be off by 50 degrees. I just learned that about 25 minutes ago.

    If you can afford it, get one with a cable that is rated for really high heat. I have already fried two of them because I forget to remove the probe when searing something. You need to be careful. Mine said it had a range from 32 – 625 degrees. I bring it home open the manual and it warns you not to expose the cable to temps above 400. This is my third one in about 5 months.

  127. WHAT? WHAT’D I DO NOW?

  128. Women’s curling could work

    http://tinyurl.com/ybd5jj6

  129. Huh. I knew I lost an I somewhere.

  130. I’m avoiding Drudge (or any news/headline) site today. The term “fiscal cliff” makes me want to get into a car, drive to a place (I won’t name it) and shove peoples faces into the most disgusting piles of feces Rosetta can find.

    It’s as if I’ve been hypnotized and that term makes me crazy.

    Also, after reviewing that chart at Ace’s on the FC tax rate changes, I don’t think giving up drugs this year is that great an idea.

  131. WHAT’D I DO NOW?

    You committed hockey heresy.

    *goes back to shunning*

  132. Thanks, Cyn.

  133. Thanks Scott.

    Pretty sure curling is just an excuse to drink beer.

  136. I am shunned.

    I hate this.

  137. I’ve got two more “must clean/organize” rooms.

    Plus the garage.

    Boo hiss.

  138. a bunch of pig-humpers from South Carolina

    We had to as kids.

  143. The X1 is pretty nice, but its expensive.

  146. MJ, are you talking about the BMW? Very nice. I have a 12 year old X5 and I love it, but it’s time to say goodbye. The thought of car shopping makes me want to (insert something weird here).

    This is for my daughter. We are scouting out cars for her. She walked through a Honda dealership when it was closed (the best time) so she could just check out the looks and what not.

  147. >> *feeling ends*

    HAHAHAHA.. I hate you so much

  148. She loves my car, however, little things are starting to crop up and getting a BMW fixed/repaired/parts replaced is expensive. Impractical for her needs. But she likes the way the SUV sits up higher.

  149. Mare, I second Tushar’s RAV4 over CRV recommendations, but I find them both uncomfortable for long drives. My boss just bought a Nissan Murano, and he and I both really like it.

  150. Murano’s going to step you up a bit in price, and a coworker of mine has had some trouble with the CVT in his. My sister has a RAV4 she’s very happy with.

  151. This is for MJ NOBODY ELSE CLICK!

  152. Your daughter is young enough the discomfort of a RAV4 on a long drive won’t kill her.

    Unlike your ancient ass.

  153. Mare, I have a Pathfinder, since I have five peeps in the family. The Murano is very nice, but the Rogue is a smaller version and cheaper, too.

  154. Huh, that’s interesting because she may be doing some long drives.

    *continues to chase my own tail

  155. You guys may actually be helpful, thanks.

    Rogue, don’t know that one, be right back.

  156. HAHAHAHA.. I hate you so much

    *smirks*

  157. Mare, try carsdirect.com

    I used them a while back and loved it. You tell them what you want, they get you an awesome price and tell you where to pick it up.

    The car was cheaper through them, and every option was cheaper too.

  158. Christmas tree is down and stowed away (no thanks to me)

  159. Yea, the kids do a good job on the garage. My daughter helped me with the pantry. I just sorta meant it’s a project I need to get going no matter who does the actual work.

  160. Scott, I keep hearing about that and it sounds like THE ONLY way to go, talking to a car salesman is the worst, I my thinly disguised hatred doesn’t help the bottom line.

  161. I think I am done with new cars.

  162. Aggie, you still have a Pathfinder? Which car was wrecked? Are you feeling better?

  163. My 2011 Pathfinder saved my life, so I got a 2012 to replace it, PepeLp.

    And I’m doing much better now :D

    Hope you got my card!

  164. We have two days in a row with no plans!
    This never happens. Think I’ll paint the bathroom.

  165. Got the card, Thanks Aggie!

  166. Mare, Lipstick was really happy with her Ford Escape when I was looking at cars a year or so ago. I think they’ve made a lot of changes to the model since then.

  167. This evenings meal is going to be fantastic.

  168. MJ, are you talking about the BMW? Very nice. I have a 12 year old X5 and I love it, but it’s time to say goodbye. The thought of car shopping makes me want to (insert something weird here).

    My boss owns two, and isn’t happy with either of them. Leaks etc starting after 5 yrs.

  176. Scott is the worst

  177. We normally don’t have time for such projects. We only get a few weekends off and family usually ruins them.

  178. I don’t care for SUVs, but I’d like to know what’s a comfortable traveling vehicle for four people, two over 6′ tall.

  179. in 1991 I moved a hundred miles from my family. We saw one another 3, 4 times a year.

    At the time I thought that was ok. But when mom was failing, and all those drives to Dallas, and then dad this year, I’m not sure being far away was a good thing.

    They are just things, but I do wish I’d have been closer in the hard times. So I guess this is my dumb way of saying I’m glad you are close to them Scott.

  180. I’d like to know what’s a comfortable traveling vehicle for four people, two over 6′ tall.

    I hate to say it, but for some reason the Popemobile popped into my head :D

  181. Hahahahaha, Aggie. Mini-me is already 5′ 3″ at 11 years old, so there’s going to have to be some leg room.

  182. HAHAHAHAHA

  183. My Chevy Venture was pretty roomy for my 6′ 2″ nephew, Roamy.

  184. Dave, I don’t consider 100 miles a long distance. I drive that nearly every day during baseball/softball season. The 470-mile drive to VA is looooooong, plus you have the nimrods in Chattanooga and Knoxville screwing up traffic.

  185. I has a Chevy truck

  186. I am a Nimrod now

  193. Sunny and cold here today. Lots of frosty goodness this AM.

  194. Hahahahaha, Dave, you drive 30 mph in a 55 zone? You treat turn signals like Christmas lights, you use them only once a year? You speed up to cut off someone who uses their turn signal? You rubberneck at the wreck on the other side of the interstate, causing one on your side? Welcome to Chattanooga.

  195. Did I poat this already?

  196. Stark, I had a Mercury Grand Marquis for a while. Plenty of room at 17 mpg.

  202. We could fit 9 and a quarter keg in an old Suburban.

  203. Good job MCPO.

  205. Pepe, one more thing. Get a wireless one or one with big numbers.

    I use binoculars to read the temps from inside the house.

  206. xBrad – Not much left in there. Been pooping on the hour since 1 am.

  207. I got the flu shot yesterday, so hopefully I won’t go through all the fun you’re having.

  208. MCPO, here’s hoping you have this kind of Texas two-step real soon.

    Wow, you’re a grandfather clock!

  210. recipes, weather AND poop!

  211. Car blog

  212. Roamy – Very nice. Thank you.

  213. Mare, sorry, but for some reason Toyota are my number one favourite vehicls. If leg room is what you are looking for, unless you go luxury, your good bets are Toyota Avalon and Toyota Venza.
    If anyone can think of vehicles in that price range that are better, I would like to hear about them.

  214. The worst symptom, other than the fever, is the body aches. I really do feel like someone bludgeoned me with a baseball bat.

  215. Tushar – I drove the Venza and bought the Edge. More room and more visibility.

  216. **hides aluminum softball bat behind back**

    That’s terrible, MCPO!

  217. ^^ Well, at least the splinters have been eliminated!

  218. That’s how I felt when I woke up, MCPO. I tossed and turned a lot last night. Between that and the coughing, I felt like I’d done the worst workout of my life yesterday.

  219. I have a 2007 Toyota Tacoma double cab and like it

  220. Jimbro – 4WD?

  221. *sprays blog with Lysol™*

  222. Crapblog.

  223. 4WD on demand, not AWD.

  224. Chief, I try to recommend good cars. GM and Chrysler don’t cut it. Ford I would have recommended, if they were not made by UAW.

  225. Toyota sells a double cab, no bed fully covered version of the Tacoma. They call it 4Runner. Roamy can consider it too.

  226. 4Runners are pricey. My Tacoma is a base level package and IIRC was about 24k in 07.

  227. That being said, I’d take one if some cougar bought me one

  228. >>I drove the Venza and bought the Edge. More room and more visibility.

    Ha ha, how did I miss that low hanging fruit?

    Chief, your visibility issues had nothing to do with what car you drove. You needed a surgeon to fix that.

  229. I’d be OK with a Yugo if the cougar buying me one was hot enough.

    Cyn?

  230. **buys XBrad a ’68 lime green VW Beetle**

  231. Good enough!

  232. Classy!

    http://tinyurl.com/3x2nw37

  233. Dodge Ram is a good truck so long as you get the Cummins engine. Otherwise I wouldn’t recommend American vehicles.

  234. Gay guy like “RAM!” “Cummins?!”

  235. I actually like the classic Beetle. Thought about a SmartCar, but I figured XBrad already has a golf cart.

  236. Chief, Edge has 0.4 inches better front leg room and 0.5 inches better rear leg room. The difference is not large enough to choose one over the other.

  237. Jewstin – my brother loves his Dodge tuck with the diesel engine.

  238. The snowbirds are here the kind that think hard acceleration is taking their foot off the brake. I followed one today much to my dismay. He was driving a primer gray Chevy Chevette that looked like it is only driven on Sundays in the winter. He managed to make it to the 30 mph limit in a mile. Only to hit the brakes for no reason and slow to 25.

    It was not a Yugo or a bug but I wanted to share.

  239. I’d get Xbrad a pair of roller skates. Then I would take him somewhere with lots of stairs. Then I would call the Neptune Society.

  240. XBrad?

  241. This summer I saw a trashy Nova in a parking lot. The sign in the window said $4,000 firm. I don’t believe it sold.

  242. I know an engineer (pocket-protector, not pillow-ticking hats) up here who recommends what he calls “Cadavaliers”. I think he spends around $300/yr besides gasoline & insurance.

  243. Well nuts. Hot date got postponed until tomorrow. On the plus side the possibility of guilt sex increased exponentially.

  244. Vman, I think that guy’s twin brother drives around here just waiting to pull out in front of me.

  251. Just trying to cheer Leon up, she looks like his type. ;-)

  252. Thanks, Pepe.

  253. That reminds me. I have to somehow summon the presence of mind to actually write the 52nd MMM poat for tomorrow.

  254. I may have to peruse that site for TTT.

  255. Having skimmed a bit, I think you will find a treasure trove, Brad.

  256. Am I the only one who had to look up Neptune Society?

  257. Gee, where did everyone go??

  258. *runs to look up Neptune Society*

  259. *makes mental note*

  260. The Neptune Society collects your dead bodies and tosses them into the Pacific depths. It’s terribly convenient.

  261. Great, I do a pic for Leon, and now sweet little innocent Aggie checks out the site and thinks I’m a perv.

  262. Great, I do a pic for Leon, and now sweet little innocent Aggie checks out the site and thinks I’m a perv mines it for future hookers at H&B.

    Fixeted ;)

  263. Ok, back to food. I have to get a thermometer and get my grill set up for cooking. My bride cooked a roast for dinner. Her proceedure: take roast out of freezer, unwrap, drop in crock pot, cook on high for 6 hours!!! Wanted to make sure it’s done. Started with a 3 pound roast, ended up with 1.5 pounds of shrunken leather.

  264. She didn’t defrost or season or put liquid in the crockpot??

  265. Six hours in the crockpot on low would likely have been sufficient. Perhaps it would be wise to save money on the thermometer and ban the bride from setting foot in the kithchen?

  266. The jerky is a big success.

  267. and now sweet little innocent Aggie checks out the site and thinks I’m a perv.

    You ARE at The Hostages.

  268. I mean, at least check it with the meat thermometer to see if it’s at 160° before you call it bad.

  269. Maybe some salt and pepper. :-)

    I love her, but she doesn’t like to cook. I have to learn to cook in self defense.

  270. What Roamy said :D

  271. I find it astonishing that amongst people anywhere near my age the men are accomplished and attentive cooks. I don’t mean to sexist but I did grow up in a world where women were proud to make a lively home for their families.

  272. Women were told that cooking was a stereotype and sexist. Plus, prepared,heat and eat food became widely available. Cooking became a hobby.

  273. Of course, I have an awful lot of white hair. I may be entering the Get Off My Lawn crowd a bit early.

  274. Comment by Pupster on December 30, 2012 6:30 pm

    Tell that lady to get off the roast & put it in a crock-pot. 160°!

  275. Case in point:

    I made Roamy’s Penne a Vodka recipe for a wine party I hosted. It was a huge hit. When asked for the recipe, I told my friends to look for it on my notes at the social-site-with-faces, and also made mention that it was a recipe from a good friend, who is a rocket scientist.

    One gal asked,”She cooks and is a scientist??”

    I just drank moar wine.

  276. Aggie is Relevant Aggie.

  277. Pepe, BBQ or oven thermometer:

    http://www.amazon.com/Maverick-Wireless-BBQ-Thermometer-Set/dp/B004IMA718

    wireless, probes for food and cooker/oven temp. I have 2, both have lasted 2 years. I think Hotspur got one too.

    For an all purpose thermometer, instant read digital is the best, with a thin probe. I have this one:

    http://www.thermoworks.com/products/thermapen/

    They are expensive, but very accurate, and you don’t have to wait for a readout. Of course I do a LOT of cooking, so I use mine a lot, YMMV.

  278. And you can pressure cook a frozen solid roast, not sure how it would turn out in the crock pot.

    Low would have been a better choice, though.

  279. Aggie, I seem to be the oddball. One co-worker asks her husband every afternoon what they should get for take-out.

    I’m no Cordon Bleu chef (witness last week’s disaster with venison), but I can always make sammiches. ;)

  280. I always thaw roast before crocking, and usually cube it for stew/curry, then mix in whatever vegetables I’m adding, rather than adding liquid.

  281. I fail to understand the need for a thermometer. It is useful for candy but when not worried about hard crack why go to the expense? Experience is a better measure. You can always cook undone food. Overdone rarely happens twice.

  282. and I’m very glad the Penne alla Vodka was a hit :D

  283. I cook, and I used to be a scientist. My title changed to engineer at some point.

  284. With a thermometer, overdone doesn’t even happen once. Experience or not, there’s always something that goes wrong. IT’s just one less thing to worry about, and a good habit to get into.

  285. Thanks J’Ames. What are the advantages of a smoker over a grill? On the Amazing Ribs site, they seem to use the same temps and procedures regardless of cooker type.

  286. I haven’t tried the Penne alla Vodka, but it’s on the list. It looks really good.

  287. Jewstin, you missed the Great Smoking Adventures.

    http://ctbrc.wordpress.com/

    http://amazingribs.com/recipes/beef/prime_rib_roast.html

  288. My sister makes it at least twice a month, Roamy. Personally, I think her hand slips with the vodka, but I’m not complaining :D

  289. You can modify your cooking technique, and use indirect cooking on a grill. A smoker is just easier to cook a larger amount indirectly, since the firebox is separate.

    Just depends on what you are doing. Scott modified his gas grill for smoking, and that’s the method I used for Christmas Prime Rib, with amazing results.

  290. I have now smoked food on a Bullet type smoker (water pan), Weber kettle, gas grill, and a smoker. The temps don’t change, just the methods of keeping temperature at a constant level for extended times.

    I also got one of these, and it works great on the Weber and the Char Griller smoker that I have:

    http://pitmasteriq.com/

  291. As soon as I get a thermometer, I’ll give the indirect grilling a shot. I did take a 1,350 pound steer to the butcher a few weeks ago. It will hang 2 to 3 weeks, so should be ready for pickup soon.

  292. It’s really easy, pepe. I’m sure you’ll be expert at it in no time.

  293. I always like getting those cans of wood chips for the grill. I think pecan is my favorite.*

    *Pe- cahn not Pee-can

  294. I’m hungry and grumpy.

  296. Want some roast Aggie?

  297. Thank you, Pepe, but I’ll stick with the crackers ;)

  298. I wish I could grow pecan trees up north. I would love to cook with pecan, wood and nuts (SYWM).

  299. I, for one, appreciate the opinions of the H2ers, especially when I need a wide net kind of deal.

    Other than that, when I want your opinion I’ll kick it out of you.

  300. MMM scheduled to arrive at 630am. I very much doubt I’ll be up nearly so early.

  301. I better not be up. This cough has been kicking my ass for 2 days, and I’m looking forward to a good night’s sleep.

    Mucinex DM FTW!

  302. Did Mare just threaten to kick Tushar’s ass?

  303. Is it wrong to take NyQuil from a shot glass?

  304. Considering NyQuil™ comes with its own shotglass, no.

  305. Use a Jaeger shotglass.

  306. My glass ones are easier to clean than the little plastic cup.

  307. I think NyQuil is Jaeger in a different bottle.

  308. You don’t snort yours?

  309. I’ve never had Jaeger. I’m not sure I should. Sounds risky.

  310. If you like waking up with a pounding headache & throwing up blood, talk to your doctor about whether Jaeger might be right for you.

  311. Mrs MJ is watching a Sarah Jessica Parker movie. Every copy of it should be collected and burned along with anything she’s ever done.

    The writer should be burned at the stake.

  312. Didn’t Sarah Jessica Parker star in Secretariat?

  313. Nyquil got rid of pseudoephedrine, and it doesn’t work for shit anymore.

  314. autonap is fuxxor…shakes head

  315. I love this picture because it reminds me of that jackass Rosetta:

  316. Pseudo is a stimulant. I think it used to be in DayQuil. You can still get it as Sudafed, but that wakes me up like meth.

  317. MJ, is it that asshole movie titled something like, “How does she do it?” It’s constantly playing on Showtime and all involved should be killed, hard.

  318. Didn’t Sarah Jessica Parker star in Secretariat?

    Brian Denehy portrayed SJP portraying Secretariat.

  319. Tylenol seems to be helping the fever and body aches.

  320. Last time I took Tylenol (& not its rather more dangerous grandson Tylenol III) I vomited it right back up. That was 1986, & I haven’t bothered since.

  325. I made the Pioneer Woman’s chicken and rice soup today, Roamy. It’s that kinda day :)

  326. I only take Tylenol when I’m desperate for a night of thorough sleeping. That shit is the muscle relaxant and sleep aide from Olympus. It’s ambrosia on steroids.

    But, I rarely take any medication except Ibuprophen for migraines and even that makes me loopy.

  330. Did anybody make a humorous observation about anybody else’s mother’s weight today?

  333. Chaste

    adjective, chast·er, chast·est.

    “My dog chaste me around the room.”

    Chaste

  334. Mare, I HATE our Honda Civic. Next vehicle will be a Nissan or Toyota. Love our Xterra.

  335. Dan said he was making brisket, but changed his mind and made posole. I guess if you don’t cook you can’t complain, but I really wanted brisket.

  336. Ooh. Connie and I are like brothers or something. I have an Xterra in storage. It was a fantastic driver.

  337. Why is it I didn’t think you drove, Oso?

  341. And was I going to be Thelma or Louise?? I get those mixed up.

  343. I don’t drive. We bought the Xterra and gas prices got crazy just before Dan became manager of 2 stores across town. We bought the Civic for commuting. Xterra is for camping trips. I don’t know which one is which either.

  344. Tonight I invented a way to sear meat with insanely high direct heat on a weber grill.

  345. what? NOO sheeeeit!

    I has smoking planses.. Talked to my pork belly connection. This shit is happening. No more HEB bacons

  349. Why would you aim a fire extinguisher at a poor pair of pants just minding their own business, lying on the floor, Cyn?

  350. You woulda thunk Dave would have made a Dallas football thread with a Dal Gal elbow at the hq.

    Did that sound passive aggressive? It sounded passive aggressive.

  351. They had it comin’, Sean, being all creasy and what not. Plus they were kinda fiery.

  352. honest to God, I ate the best turkey bacon EVAH tonight.

    Truly amazing. Tasted almost like real bacon, only better…

  353. Whole pork belly or a select piece, Dave?

  354. Our Weber grill has two grates. If you remove one, you can rotate the other 90 degrees and place it directly on the “flavor bars”. Turn the burners to high and you are guaranteed a grease fire within 2 minutes.

    High direct heat.

    Worked like a charm.

    You are totally dependent on other people to haul your ass somewhere?

    My 2nd younger sister is like that.
    She drove in the Army, but does not have a civilian license!
    “Things happen too fast!”

    My mother did that, too. I figured it was a “Power-Trip” thing over my dad. He had to drive her wherever she needed/wanted to go.

    I’ve been driving since I was 10! My dad used to toss me the keys and say; “Go find your idiot older brother and bring him home, before the cops do.”

    Cars, trucks, motorcycles, snow-machines, fixed-wing, rotary-wing, turbine, reciprocal. If it will haul-ass, I can drive/fly it…
    I can’t imaging being dependent on someone else for transport, seriously.

    Not condemning, just really puzzled…

  361. Remember muslihoon? He is now married to a very lovely lady.

    How “lovely” is that?

  362. Tony Romo legacy starts now.

    This is his last chance.

  363. to be honest, the bacon I had at the Ws was probably the best bacon I have ever tasted in my life. Spicy, fresh, smoky but not overly so…

  374. Ray Bradbury never drove.

  375. If it’s cheap enough, get a whole one, around fifteen pounds, trim it (save the trimmings), divide it into three or four slabs, and try three or four different cure recipes.

    If it’s more than $4.50/lb., just get five or eight pounds from the thicker meatier part, and divide it for two different recipes.

  376. We can sell it by the gram.

  384. Laura,
    I could totally understand that. Before I got my cataract surgery, I certainly should NOT have been driving, but I was. I just could not stand to be dependent on someone. Pretty selfish, on my part.

    I’m sure there are a myriad of reasons not to drive. I was just curious(snoopy?).

  391. Mail order homemade bacon. I think I’m gonna need a cigarette for this.

  392. Chris P, it’s ok. I’ve just always factored in not driving into my schedule. I don’t let it interfere with my life.

    I applied for a “Tech Support” job at the FAA that was contracted to an Indian (casino, not tech-support) outfit.
    They acknowledged my skill with the hardware/software, BUT…
    They thought that I would “SCARE” the IT-Newbie customers.
    They thought I was “intimidating”.
    I would not have. I’m quite careful with people who are not geeks.

  399. I would never toss my bacon bouquet.

  400. It was only 2 lessons Scott but even knowing my hands on the yolk won over feet. My instructor said not to bother.

    *hops in the back seat*
    ==========
    When my grandfather got older, and they wouldn’t let him drive, he got mad and insisted on riding in the back seat from then on. My grandmother refused to wear the chauffeur’s cap though.

  403. Only select timelines, beasn.

    No doubt.
    She is such an evil bitch, I can’t even trust a clot or concussion if they’re really a clot or concussion. Her department f*cked up in a bad way and quite possibly even worse shit than we imagine if she’s clotting over it.
    See how crazy one gets thinking when the subject is an evil bitch?

  404. Vmax,
    Motorbikes and flying are quite similar, with one added dimension.
    ,
    What’s really funny is that when you get into a helicopter for the first time, the instructor yells at you for; “You damned fixed-wing pilots just can’t keep your feet still!”

    You have no idea how difficult it is to find one of those. The people at the butcher look at me like I’m craaaazy.

  410. Heh X
    Whateverthefracktheyspellit.

  411. Any job is better than no job.

    I respectfully disagree….

  412. I couldn’t believe the State Dept resignations turned out to be reshuffling and no one actually lost their job. OK, I believe it with this crew. I don’t watch the news. Are any of the alphabets covering what is going on in CAR?

  413. *tosses bacon’s salad

  414. I can’t even trust a clot or concussion if they’re really a clot or concussion.

    First, I haven’t heard that she actually has a clot in her brain. Also, she has a history of clots in her leg(s), but has been off of blood thinners since 2007, so BIG SHOCK! She’s probably had a few of these over the years, & they’re just conveniently inflating the importance of this latest one.

  415. The people at the butcher look at me like I’m craaaazy.

    you are obviously going to the wrong butcher…..

  416. scott, the probes on that themometer aren’t any more robust than the cheapo one I have, so I don’t think they are high heat resistant. But I’ve never had one go bad yet, either. I don’t use high heat a lot.

  417. Laura,Scott, if you ever start a mail order bacon business, chalk me down for your 6 flavor 12 pound deluxe pack.

  418. Searing at the end. I have killed 2 so far.

  419. You need a platinum/palladium thermocouple, a good DMM, & some calibration time.

  420. If you sear at temps over 1500 fake french degrees, I really think you need to invest in some astronomy equipment.

  421. OK we disagree Wiser
    Ban Me NOW!

  422. Reading the description at Amazon, it says the probe wires are resistant to 716 degrees.

  423. Regardless of that, I remove the probe before searing, and reinsert before resting.

  424. In the mid ’60s, I worked as a chauffeur for an old lady. I was paid the princely sum of $1.00/hr.
    It was not NEARLY enough…

  425. Ban Me NOW!

    one.

    It was not NEARLY enough…

    did you have to bathe her?

  426. Oso,
    ALL those dirt-bags still work at state, at a different desk!
    Nobody took the fall for Benghazi. Except the people who died there.

  427. I just recently figured that out Jay.

  428. Tushar, I’m pretty sure it’s a crime to transport sinfully good young bacon across state lines.

    You’re probably going to have to come back to Connecticut and crash a party in order to collect the goods.

    Alternatively, you might host a Summer Tusharpalooza 2013 in New Jersey. Hosting can be as easy as finding a hotel, a picnic park, and a restaurant with a good bar all in reasonable proximity.

    We have a ton of Morons in New Jersey.

    I’ll bring bacon.

  429. Hosting can be as easy as finding a hotel, a picnic park, and a restaurant with a good bar all in reasonable proximity.

    don’t forget the parking lot….

    and the go-kart racing

    and someone to drive me home…..

  430. I’m pretty sure it’s a crime to transport sinfully good young bacon across state lines.

    Nooooooooooooo…

    *slashes Xbrad’s wrists*

  431. *slashes Xbrad’s wrists*

    I just got an erection….

  432. If you’d sliced my belly, Cyn, you could have made bacon.

  433. Wiser,
    No, but I had to drive around Portland, pick-up her other rich old-lady friends and drive them places, like the Oregon coast, drop them off at a nice resort, or restaurant, and wait in the car. She did not even spot me lunch. She was the heiress to something called the “Philbin Rectifier Fortune”, whatever the fuck that was. It was a long time ago…
    Oh crap!
    I just looked that up!
    I totally should have stayed there and kissed her ass:

    I fucked-up…

  434. MOM!!!! Wiserbud’s into Pain Porn again!!!

  435. If you’d sliced my belly, Cyn, you could have made bacon.

    HA!

    .
    No.
    .

  436. I fucked-up…

    dumbass

    if only you had just tossed her a mercy-fuck and it could have just as easily been ChrisP Manufacturing….

    You just know Xbrad would have done it

    yannow

    before he got slashed….

  437. Wiserbud’s into Pain Porn again!!!

    is there any other kind?

  438. is there any other kind?

    OMFG Yes!!

    Um….

    I mean…I have no idea.

  440. ChrisP, an old rancher offered me $1000 a week to drive him around. I was in college. I didn’t drive. He wanted to pay me $500 a week to open and close gates on his property. Creepy.

  441. That reminds me, I have to thaw out this pork belly, and make me somes bacon.

  442. *nervous about clicking on an Xbrad link*

  443. Okay, that was worth it.

  444. Laura, interesting idea. There are some nice places by the Jersey shore, and a few by Delaware water gap. I will scope them out.

  445. Wiser,
    Trust me, she made Helen Thomas look appealing.
    You do NOT want to go there (shudder)…
    I would not post the name here, as relatives might hunt me down and have me “neutralized” in the Russian sense…
    It was “educational”, but not “profitable”…

  446. WooHoo! Hail to the Redskins!!!!

  447. OSO!
    Holy Shit!
    For that kinda money, Id’a opened all the gates he wanted, IYKWIMAITYD…

  448. There are some nice places by the Jersey shore, and a few by Delaware water gap.

    Yes, the Delaware Water Gap is extremely nice, as long as you stay away from that crap down by Stroudsburg.

  449. someone offered me some edible pot like thing at work. I didn’t know what it was and almost ate it.

    fin.
    $20

  450. school nite darnit

  451. He owned quite a bit of Northern NM/Southern CO. He was old.

  452. I met Mrs Dave in Delaware Water Gap

  453. Romo threw an interception in a clutch situation?

    unreal….

  454. Oso,
    Honey, I’m old, too. I only own 5 acres, have a lot of bills, and am a cantankerous son of a bitch.
    I think that we would get along…

  455. That Romo sure has some spectacular season ending plays.

  456. He just wanted you to hold his sheep, Oso.

  457. Indians beat the Cowboys. Hell yeah.

  458. looks like RGIII will be the guy who beats the Pats this year.

    Assuming Belichik hasn’t figured out how new ways to cheat, of course…

  459. Impressive to see Dallas just give up like that.

  460. I love it when Jerry Jones loses, but I don’t want the Cowboys to lose necessarily. Tony Romo schooling Jason Whitten ? Really? Even if he made a mistake, ROMO SHUT YOUR INTERCEPTED PIE HOLE.

  461. Oh man, were they slapping each other & crying like little girls? I might have to start watching this foot ball thing again.

  462. I might have to start watching this foot ball thing again.

    meh… don’t bother…

    football season is over.

  463. When Romo (whom I like) shakes his head after a bad play from another player…yikes, not good visuals, looks like a douche.

  464. **disgustedly shakes head at Mare’s lame comment**

  465. looks like a douche.

    Romo?

    Tony Romo???

    Looks like a douche????

    noooooooooo…….

  466. Throws ball as hard as I can at xbrad’s groin, no one intercepts it. Xbrad has to take a time out.

  467. Throws ball as hard as I can at xbrad’s groin, no one intercepts it.

    well, at least we know that mare isn’t tony romo…..

  468. I like RG111C3PO, he seems like a quality guy. Loved the post game interview with him, Morris and the other guy. I was rooting for the Redskins because I like the humble, kick ass rookie. Plus he’s a cornball brother and I really like them.

  469. I like RG111C3PO, he seems like a quality guy.

    amazing how RG3 seems to have flown under the radar of all of the h8ers, as opposed to Tebow.

    I wonder why that is?

  470. Some douche ESPN guy was suspended for questioning RGIIIs “blackness”. Jerry Jones is the only owner I like less than Snyder.

  471. Some douche ESPN guy was suspended for questioning RGIIIs “blackness”.

    “suspended.”

    I prefer “fired and never rehired in media again.”

    “suspended” means “eventually gets high-paying gig at MSNBC where he can continue to spew his stupidity.”

    Meanwhile, everyone who has bad-mouthed Tebow is still employed.

  472. Yep. I hate Dilfer. Hoge. Joe Montana. Just about every QB, former player, commentator, etc that has to make every on air moment about Tebow who isn’t even playing. They make me a Tebow fan, with every bitter broadcast. $20

  473. Football

  474. That DKos thread where an earnest idiot proposed an easy way to end gun ownership is interesting. This comment is particularly juicy:

    http://www.dailykos.com/comments/1172661/48896956#c133

  475. DKos kills threads.

    Good to know.

  476. Yeah. Dead.

  477. What does it matter to ya
    When you got a derp to do
    You gotta do it well
    You gotta give the other fellow hell

  478. Dammit all to hell. Vacation apparently fucks up my sleep schedule. Except why did I wake up an hour early instead of an hour late?

  479. My company accrued me vacation time during my probation period. I think that’s nice. But then they said I had to burn it before the first of the year.

  480. I find peppered bacon to be my favorite.

  481. Slacking slackers.

  482. I see a MMM poat.
