So, there is not much I am eating right now as most foods make me green. Just the smell or thought of some foods make me wanna toss. Every so often I get a craving that I feel I can handle. So tonight I wanted ice cream. No idea why. But the ice cream pull was hard. So Scott offers to run out to DQ to get me some. Text me what you want he says....
Great, I say. I just texted my entire craving order to Colleen by accident. And now I can't stop laughing. - Mary Carmen
If I had any shame I'd be embarrassed by what I just asked him to bring me. - Mary Carmen
I support ice cream crowd sourcing. Just fyi. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

been a Rush fan for decades and that was never my PIN. EDIT: also, way to work in the name of one of their live albums. :D - Big Joe Silence

So the one guy left while I was commiserating with a fellow Florida transplant, then irreconcilable differences guy texted after a week of radio silence, then long time crush we call Golde Ratio Guy showed up, and now Michael Stipe and his entourage makes an appearance.

Hi my name is sarah and I'm the last person in the world to discover that chipotle guacamole is delicious. AMA,
... not quite the last. - RepoRat
I LOVE the guac at the Chipotle nearest me. Is so delicious. Sometimes we go to other chipotles and it does not quite live up and then I am extra sad. - Hedgehog
Now I'm confused. I read that as "guacamole flavored with chipotle," not "the guacamole you buy at Chipotle's." Clarification? - Walt Crawford
I read it that way too, Walt. - bentley
Either way it is a win. - Corinne L
Oh, I read it as the store-- but I see where it could be the ingredient. Tells you the impact our store has had on my taste buds - Hedgehog

I might try to make pancakes. How hard could it be? Famous last words.
find king aruthur flour mixes. they are awesome. and easy. - Sir Shuping is just sir
Pancakes are pretty easy to make. As long as you don't over mix them, they stay light and fluffy. Also, make sure your griddle/pan is hot. A drop of water should sizzle away and evaporate immediately. - Katy S
Ima go put my glasses on and give it a go. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
So hard. I think my pans are wrong for it? Good luck. - Meg VMeg
I always end up burning them. I hope you fare better. - John (bird whisperer)

I use this recipe. it's easy. - ellbeecee
Since when does flour have an expiration date??? - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I've not noticed. But anything with fats in it would have to have an expiration date. Fats go rancid with time and heat. - Spidra Webster
Which begs a follow-up question: Since when does flour have fats in it? (Baking mixes, possibly... ) - Walt Crawford
First round is an epic fail. Ima go have a cigarette and regroup. Sigh. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I'm admitting defeat. Live to fight another day. Nobody say 'pancakes' to me for awhile. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
I usually fuck up 3-4 pancakes until I get the pan temperature right. :-/ - Jenny H. from Android
^^ yep, i always have to have a bunch of test pancakes before i get it right. - holly #ravingfangirl
it always takes me 1-2 pancakes to remember that I need the burner temp a LOT higher than I think I do. - ellbeecee
I can only counter with King Arthur's nutritional label, noting that their white flour also says 0, 0, 0 for fats: - Walt Crawford
So, apparently, some whole wheat flours are fattier than others? - Walt Crawford
Aha: King Arthur's response in this thread clarifies things (that, and that the first link uses a CUP OF FLOUR as a single serving, where KA uses what might actually be in a serving of something baked): All-purpose flour really doesn't expire, but whole-grain flour has just enough oil to eventually go rancid: - Walt Crawford
Yeah, making pancakes on the stovetop is notoriously difficult, due to the temperature of the pan. I tend to have the best luck with my electic griddle. Turning it all the way up is always perfect for pancakes; they never burn that way. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Yeah, whole wheat flours will go rancid, which is why many store it in the freezer. - Katy S
There's a skill in the flip timing too. Only flip when the middle has bubbled and the sides have firmed. I use a smallish cast iron pan where I make one at a time. - Janet from FFHound!

Big blaze at Holy Cross Church destroys a beloved structure in San Jose - San Jose Mercury News
"SAN JOSE -- Holy Cross Catholic Church, a century old center of a beloved parish, where mass was still recited in the Italian language, burned down Sunday afternoon. The cause of the four alarm blaze, said officials, was not known. However, it did move rapidly up to the second floor and then to the roof. Devouring the heavy timbers that constructed the building, the fire eventually engulfed the roof and soon it collapsed. The fire destroyed a beautiful dome structure the church was known for and the parish also lost gorgeous, old paintings and a rare crucifix that was dear to the many parishioners." - Me from Bookmarklet

Wylie Dufresne’s Unwavering Vision Turned wd~50 Into a Vital New York Restaurant -- Grub Street
"What's always impressed me about wd~50 is just how willing Dufresne has been to go all-in. He didn't introduce modernist thinking to curious New York diners while also cooking steak-frites. He gave people plates of flattened oysters, and foie gras with sardines garnished with cacao nibs. I still remember eating both of those dishes in 2003, along with squid noodles that Dufresne served with chunks of melon. In the meals that I've had since — too many to count, but the number is obscenely high — there's always been something new, something that had truly never been done before." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"But the problem is that, unlike a progressive movie or album, forward-looking food is literally perishable, and dishes that might feel ahead of their time don't really live on for people to rediscover once they've caught up. So however much chefs and food nerds have heaped praise on Dufresne, it's not so surprising that many members of the public never really warmed up to wd~50. And in... more... - Andrew C (✔)

"SpaceShipTwo’s breakup likely exposed both pilots to the slipstream at still over mach 1. Flying debris was their first challenge. Second, the sudden decompression and then deceleration forces struck them. According to an anonymous source within Scaled Composites, the Washington Post reported yesterday that both pilots remained buckled into their seats. Alsbury never separated from the seat and cabin, and information reaching the public reveals that he impacted at high speed still within some fraction of the remaining cabin." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"The anonymous sources within Scaled Composites revealed that Siebold was able to unbuckle from his seat and deploy his chute at 17,000 feet (5,181 m). It is very likely that even Siebold fell unconscious from the initial stresses of the breakup and from decompression at 50,000 feet (15,240 m).
