*waves* Such a lovely bunch of people here. I've been lurking for a while and will likely continue to do so. I like German microphones, Irish Whiskey and short walks on the beach.
Oh, I like this very, very much! Thank you.
+5 For Rick Roll.
I am quite literally crying with laughter - at my desk! - over the R-O-S-E-B-U-D incident. Oh my word is that funny.
And while I never want to be in the ICU under any circumstances, if for some awful reason I am, I am going to remember that.
@YFN Dentonista@twitter Fun Fact: Rick Steves was the co-sponsor of Washington State's recent Initiative 502, to legalize, tax and regulate marijuana. Not as narrow as I had previously assumed!
We're all Absolute Beginners.
@thisisunclear As a former resident of that fine city I can assure everyone that there is no "Drynuary" in New Orleans. What there is, is CARNIVAL, January 6 until February 12th. Then y'all can dry out.
@bocadelperro Yes! It can be only once a month! It takes financial dexterity sometimes, but keeping tidy is easier and life is far less stressful when I know that at the end of the month someone is going to come DO THE BATHROOM.
I also look at hiring a cleaner as helping the local economy and a small business, but that may in part be to assuage any lingering sense of guilt over the perception of luxury.
You had me at "[a] thick, red man falls out of a door." This is lovely and I hope you are feeling better.
@Lush Life Oh, HTML, you...
All the Brussels Sprouts love here is fantastic!
In an effort to eat healthy but not bland food, I've been experimenting with vinegar and veggies.
Can't remember the specific recipe but these two have similar ideas for a zesty side dish:
Sugar Snap peas With Lemon Mint Vinaigrette
Bacon & Balsamic Glazed Snap peas
Warm balsamic over asparagus topped with a dusting of slightly melted Parmigiano-Reggiano is also yummy.
