It's almost like a real post [Mar. 19th, 2008|11:00 pm]
Nicodemus
Work's been keeping me pretty busy lately. Between that and Timothy crawling around, there's been precious little time for anything else.

I've managed to squeeze in a little editing (during my commute) and cooking (decidedly not during my commute). Mostly been cooking chinese food lately as I got a bento-style thermos for taking lunches to work. Tonight I made shrimp wontons. They turned out pretty tasty, though this is only the second time I've tried it so I'm still working on the recipe. (I'm freezing most of this batch. I'm going to try adding them to soups.)


Otherwise, here's something actually entertaining. If you haven't seen it before, it's been floating around (so to speak) the 'net for a while. I've never seen a good author credit attached. It's a wonderful humorous vignette about the hazards of toy blimps.

OMG, that was priceless! I laughed so hard that I literally had to fight for breath, and scared the crap out of my cats. Thanks for sharing! :)

So does this mean every time I get inflated and float near someone... they will hear the Halloween theme? o.o

The evil has even infected cooking!

I was watching that episode on TV last night and it's actually what prompted me to search for this. I always think about the blimp in the night when I see that Good Eats. :D

The 'when blimps attack' story was wonderful. I laughed so hard it made me cry.

Is it hard to cook Chinese food from inside a battle robot?

I suppose it wouldn't be any harder than cooking French food while hiding under a guy's toque and pulling his hair.
