@Pocket Witch Your dad sounds like an interesting guy. Kitchen surgeries, ahoy!
@adorable-eggplant Slept a lot, too. Haven't been feeling 100%, so I guess this ice bs makes for a good reason to now power through this at work.
@Pocket Witch Can I just say that, I really, really love that story? Kitchen table surgery, literally!
The city is covered in ice, so I decided to stay home from work. Yesterday, boss told everyone to decide on their own if they want to drive in to lab or not. I went with no. Here's hoping that everyone else did too, because I'm going to feel silly if the rest of the lab, who live further out into suburbia, managed to make it in to lab today and I didn't. Ahahaha.
All I've done today is to drink hot tea, languish in bed, and listen to sirens go by. (I live close to a hospital clinic center thingy).
What does everyone else like to do on ice days stuck at home?
@Pocket Witch If it makes you happy, why the hell not? :) Also, that sounds like super-awesome drama. My inner baby goth is always a little sad that my skin tone is not pale enough for the super-high contrast. Roll with it, I say.
@femwanderluster But isn't it a little crazy how much better that 1-2% additional milk fat makes whole milk taste? (I have been known to drink the remaining whole cream leftover from baking/cooking, so goooood.)
@Lily Rowan For sure, I think just off of the volume, and not because, anything indicated otherwise. Just from the volume, part of me assumed they'd added other writers in the time since the first posts? Lordy.
@Lily Rowan That's kind of nutty when you think back and realize just how many posts/sheer amount of content there is. @_@
@SmartCookie Count me in for the bookclub for whenever this comes out. Eeeee!
@AniaGosia Thanks! I thought I'd seen studies along those lines before, but figured I'd see if other people also have additional anecdotes that corroborate mine.
@Beaks And like, crappy ice cream is practically a punishment unto itself, isn't it? So yeah, might as well as consume enjoyable extra calories of delicious butterfat.
