First Shamwows, now these!

They turned out pretty good, presentation was a little lacking, and they have looked fancier with icing sugar, but all in all, great success. My Weimaraner felt entitled to them by birthright.
Awesome. It makes me really happy that they turned out well.
Also, this is a dish that the more often you make it the better they end up being. My first attempts at it were pretty pitiful, the more often I made it though the better I got at it. It's really a lot about the consistency of the dough and also finding the right heat setting on the stove.
Your pictures look really stunning for the first try, wp & gg sir. Have you been a cook at some point in your life?

I agree. It's a bit tricky to get the right amount of batter on them, but all in all they were presentable. Never been a cook, but in my bachelor days I recognized the sexual conquests made possible by culinary skills.. I also make a lot of pancakes. It's a similar problem of heat/dough consistency.

I think I owe much of the success to the cast iron skillet I used. Nice and deep, and very even heat. We got it a few months ago for like 18$ and it makes everything better.

We went for a two hour walk to kill the guilt of cheese fondue and "apple poker donuts".

Re: [LC] Random Ramblings About Canada related stuff.

OK, so back to parenting...

How do you deal with some of these stupd situations without coming off as a douche?

I mean, with JD's sister in law... the kid needs to learn... parent says you made the kid upset, you say kid made you upset, parent says kid doesn't know any better, and the obvious response is this is how the kid will learn, so they know better next time.

Bad parenting tilts me too...

I don't have kids FWIW

As for the laissez faire parenting... the whole point of that (IMO) is that the kid will learn on his own, from society if you will, how to live their life by experiencing the consequences of their actions and adjusting. But if society isn't allowed to do anything about it... tell the kid off, tell the parents off, or god forbit lay a finger on the child, then the whole thing is destined to fail, right? So its just a excuse to absolve yourself of your parenting responsibilities.....

And before people remind me that it was a situation from a funny story where the parents were obviously wrong, its a growing trend apparently. There was an article in the G&M a few months back talking about how it was getting more common. It should be getting more common for strangers to cuff unruly kids too....

Wait, does this mean you've crossed the line?

Think back to the cautionary tale that was Kurtz:

Specials ainec. have seen English Beat twice in the last 3 years and it's Dave Wakeling and a bunch of 20-something studio musicians and Wakeling has a bit of an attitude.

Hey MJ,

I am curious....
  • Where did Snakes and Arrows rank on your best of 2007 list...if at all?
  • What are your overall thoughts on THIS Canadian power trio?

This has to be a set-up. Are you one of my Rush-obsessed buddies trying to spread the gospel according to Neil, Alex and Geddy.

To quote the lyrics of Pavement's 'Stereo'.

'And what about the voice of Geddy Lee
'How did it get so high?'
'I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy'
'I know him and he does!'

PS - Never listened to Snakes and Arrows

"Mr. Valens admits he would likely not use the open-air toilets because they would be “kind of in the open,” and he doesn't relish the thought of sharing a communal urinal in full view of others."
LOL. Yeah. 'Kind of in the open' like urinating on the street maybe?

Note to self: Don't walk through puddles when in Guelph.

I don't even see how we have a pee problem. It's University town, but it's not any worst than anywhere else. I pee'd outside a lot more after drinking when I lived in Ottawa. A huge problem is that you would go behind some trees, and be just about to start the whiz and notice a homeless person sleeping there. I've had some close calls. Be homeless must suck, and but getting pee'd on while sleeping sucks more imo.

Brag: Wife got me a 'John Deer' mesh hat while passing thru Indiana last week.

I was bored today, and had to help one of my wife's students with some computer stuff, so I created an outfit/costume around it.



Canadian Formalwear ITT.

Chesthair FTW. I forgot to dig out my giant "J" belt buckle she got when she was out west last year.
