#716575 That's SO LA!

Posted by hollywood on 21 July 2006 - 08:20 PM

Some new walk/don't walk (actually pedestrian/hand) signs have started to appear. They do a flashing countdown of the number of seconds you've got left to get across to the other side. Now, if they would just play the Mission Impossible theme or maybe the Ventures' Walk Don't Run.

Saw a guy noodling around on his laptop. He had a very fluffy toy poodle with him. It was pure snow white except for the first 3" of each paw which had been dyed yellow--to simulate boots, I guess.

I offer, from my little archives of the Outstanding in the Field farm dinners: the incredibly talented and gorgeous and humble Ms. Justine Miner.

From the picture and your description, Ms. Miner appears to be a wonderful chef. Unfortunately, if she has not done the de rigueur blender shot (or at least posed in a cheerleader outfit) she is not eligible for consideration on this particular thread. Certainly, if she has done, that's another story and requires evidence. Of course, of course. A picture's worth a thousand words as they say.

Popcorn?

I don't know, but it beats talking about whatever is going on on some other threads, eh?

I know next to nothing about futbol, but I hear the LA Galaxy has pulled off a major coup signing Landon Donovan to its ranks. Could be interesting.


#539374 The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Posted by hollywood on 10 December 2004 - 03:22 AM

December 10th is the 56th anniversary. I suppose some might consider this political, but I'm thinking it's humanitarian. Certainly worth reading. http://www.un.org/Overview/rights.html


#538304 Steroids? Knock me down!

Posted by hollywood on 03 December 2004 - 08:13 PM

It's also increasingly apparent that every professional cyclist from Armstrong down uses dope.

Are you sure about Armstrong? Do you think he gets a free pass because of the cancer?

One of his advisors is Michele Ferrari who is currently on trial for supplying drugs to other cyclists. He has also tested positive for steroids though he claimed it was due to the use of a legal skin cream, an excuse that the relevant bodies accepted.

Wow! Do you think Sheryl Crow is using as well?

FIFTY WAYS TO EAT YOUR OYSTERS

(Carl Winter / From Paul Simon, Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover)

The problem is all inside the shell, says CDC
This Vibrio vulnificus can cause mortality
I'd like to help you eat your seafood safely
There must be fifty ways to eat your oysters

Now if you're healthy you can still enjoy them raw
Just serve 'em on the half shell, you're not breaking any law
But if the raw ones make you nervous here's some advice you can recall
There must be fifty ways to eat your oysters
Fifty ways to eat your oysters

Just heat 'em on the grill, Phil
Fry 'em in a pan, Stan
No need to avoid, Floyd
Just listen to me
Steam 'em in a pot, Scott
You don't need to prepare much
Just broil 'em for three, Lee
And eat them safely.

Heat 'em on the grill, Phil
Fry 'em in a pan, Stan
No need to avoid, Floyd
Just listen to me
Steam 'em in a pot, Scott
You don't need to prepare much
Just broil 'em for three, Lee
And eat them safely.

Knowing if you're at risk is certainly the key
Avoid raw oysters if you've got immune deficiency
Or liver problems, diabetes, some other chronic malady
There still are fifty ways to eat your oysters

Another option is to buy them pressurized
Or find some oysters that have been flash pasteurized
Many treatments can be used to cause bacterial demise
Some of the fifty ways to eat your oysters
Fifty ways to eat your oysters

Just heat 'em on the grill, Phil
Fry 'em in a pan, Stan
No need to avoid, Floyd
Just listen to me
Steam 'em in a pot, Scott
You don't need to prepare much
Just broil 'em for three, Lee
And eat them safely.

Not to spoil it, but what's the tariff?

I should note that it's not a matter of trying to impress with a non-green card, but trying to make sure one is maximizing the prospects for better treatment.

Well, if it's about maximizing, perhaps more good will could be obtained through a personal letter to the chef (much as one formerly had to do to get a reservation at Jamin), maybe letters of reference from other patrons, etc.

Remember when Feiffer used to do cartoons of seasonal dances? We need a dance to Autumn.
